The Ledger-Enquirer Interview on Writing Graphic Novels
In advance of the Chattahoochee Writers' Conference this weekend, the Ledger-Enquirer from Columbus, GA, has interviewed me about writing graphic novels. The article, "Learn how to create graphic novels at writers' conference," now appears online. Journalist Sonya Sorich asked a thorough set of questions about the history of comics in the U.S.A. and about prospects in graphic novels for writers who come from a different background. A big thanks to Sorich and her newspaper for giving the art of graphic novels more visibility. And I'm particularly happy about the article's conclusion (it's such important advice for aspiring graphic novel writers):
McCool's advice for anyone considering that route?
"They need to read a lot of graphic novels to educate themselves," he said.
