Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Graphic Novel

I always kept an eye out for a book like this whenever I shopped at my local bookstore, but I was lucky enough to find a copy of Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Graphic Novel wedged in the store's graphic novel section. Anyone else buy the book? I thought it had some decent advice.

I think it's kind of funny. I find humor in any book that targets "idiots" learning to do anything creative...in a sick sort of way.

Yeah, I got a copy at Mid-Ohio Con from Lieber. It's perfect for someone just starting out; it covers a lot of ground and answers a ton of question.

Cool. One of our buddies, Steven Withrow is putting together some sort of "creating graphic novels" book. I'll have to post it when it eventually comes out. I hadn't seen that one yet. I'll have to peak through it.

Yeah, and at the moment Catching Lucifer's Lunch and some info about us at SUMM is slated to be a part of Steve's book. Who knows if we'll end up on the cutting room floor, but it was cool to be asked to participate anyway.
