What makes a great graphic novel?

What makes a great graphic novel?

When creating your graphic novel, it’s important to be a strategic risk-taker. Create something that’s unlike any other book on the market. Writers write what they know, and your perspective is entirely your own. So, be original with your content. Create characters that readers will never forget. However, be strategic with your form. Colors, spacing, font sizes, borders, gutters, line art, and any other artistic elements, should be purposefully implemented to ensure that the soul of your graphic novel fits its body.

We’ll work closely with you to ensure that your graphic novel is the perfect balance of structure and creative expression. Our team of Publishing Specialists also will help you choose the most effective time to release your book so that the timing is right to maximize sales.
