Noble in full color...



I am a fan of graphic novels. I like anime artwork. I like that form of reading. It is a nice break from the text heavy reading that can strain my eyes and like I said I like art too. I have a number of Elfquest graphic novels that I cherish because you cant get them anymore in that format.

I was looking at my Childrens Book of the Month Club catalogue and saw that one of my favorite YA books has been made into a graphic novel. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. It is a rioutous romp of a book and a thoroughly enjoyable read, and now it is fully illustrated.

I was intrigued. I had read that Twilight was going to be made into a movie, and it made me think, Dominion Day on Film. Yes I could see my Noble on the big screen, AKA Kiefer Sutherland w/long blonde hair. (Oh be still my beating heart.) But a graphic novel? I hadn't thought about it, but now the thought is very apealing. I wonder if it is picked up by a publisher if I could negotiate a graphic novel out of it with real Japanese anime artists. HMMMMMMM it is worth a try ehe?

I have used it for my two main characters of my WIP. It's very helpful - it is a little limited, but its still got some really neat options.
