The following description is from Nick Macari's website. THE WORKING WRITERS GUIDE TO COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS
Towards the end of 2015 I was inspired to write a book on “How to write comics and Graphic Novels.”
This came about for two reasons.
Firstly, as a writer I’m always reading, looking to improve my craft and ability.
Although I’m a seasoned writer, I often buy new “how to write books” looking for that one nugget or insight that makes the purchase and time spent reading worthwhile.
I noticed with many of the comic writing books, they focused as much–if not more–on other aspects of comic production besides the writing. To be honest, I’ve already had a publishing company and I don’t really care what Stan Lee was up to in the 70’s. I mean sure, that stuff is interesting, but when I want to read about writing craft–well, I want to be reading about writing craft.
Secondly, I work with a lot of new talent, self publishers and aspiring writers. Many of them are so passionate about writing in the comic medium, they don’t really spend a lot of time learning about the craft. Armed with a generalized writing comprehension, they simply push the world out of the way and jump into writing comics feet first.
Passion is required.
But passion tempered with knowledge and a strategy, attracts success.
So for these two primary reasons, I decided to sit down and put together a small (90 page), but informative guide.
A go-to bible if you will on writing comics and graphic novels.
And so, “The Working Writer’s Guide to Comics and Graphic Novels” was born.
Like I said, I spend a good amount of money myself buying books to hone my own skills. I’ve bought plenty of books for $25… $35… $40. Books that really didn’t bring much to the table other than great eye candy.
Ultimately, with this guide, I wanted to produce something that would come across as a huge value. Something I myself would buy and say, “that was money well spent.”
