WHY ADAPT MY STORY INTO A GRAPHIC NOVEL?
 
Graphic Novels are IDEAL PRESENTATION TOOLS for selling certain genres to Motion Picture and Television Studios, Distributors, Production Companies, Sales Agents, and other licensees.
 
For many projects, Graphic Novels are SPECTACULARLY EFFECTIVE proposal elements that can often instantly command the attention of TOP TALENT AGENTS, LITERARY MANAGERS, PRODUCERS and STUDIO EXECUTIVES.
 
Even if you don’t immediately find a production partner or other ally for your completed Graphic Novel, you can INDEPENDENTLY PUBLISH IT, quickly turning your project into an income-producing property.
 
IS YOUR STORY RIGHT FOR A GRAPHIC NOVEL?
 
What kind of stories lend themselves to Graphic Novel adaptation? If your story has three or more of the following characteristics, then it is a good prospect for adaptation into a Graphic Novel:
 
   Fantasy Sequences
   Abundant Action Scenes
   Potential for a Distinctive Visual-Stylistic Treatment or Rendering
   Extensive Stock of Characters
   Lavish or Eye-Catching Settings
   Other Provocative Visual Elements
 
Film (especially Feature Film) is a VISUAL MEDIUM. Consequently, many stories can be rendered in the Graphic Novel format successfully, giving you a potent and highly effective sales tool.
