How About Graphic Novels?
Just a quick thought I wanted to throw out while I recover from the marathon writing session that resulted in The Rising Horde Volume One and The Rising Horde Volume Two (now available on Barnes and Noble’s Nook)–how do folks feel about graphic novels? I’ve been toying with the idea of releasing a comic version of The Gathering Dead, given that The Walking Dead has been such a success. What do you guys think?
This would entail me hiring an artist to actually draw the thing, and it would likely be a 100+ pages. Checking out printing costs, a color presentation of something like this would necessitate the end consumer price would be between $24.99-$32.99, which seems a bit excessive to me. Black and white would be quite a bit cheaper, and of course electronic versions would be much, much less. And in this age of iPads, the Kindle Fire, and the Nook Color, maybe that would be the way to go?
Like I said, just tossing that out there! Let me know what y’all think.
