When someone reads a book like this they obviously have the intent to create their own graphic novel, but surely haven't done it yet. It appears that there are an endless number of things one needs to know and master before one can actually craete a graphic novel. Writing and Drawing of course would be top on that list.
In reality learning and mastering to write and draw are life time pursuits, there is no such thing as a time when you are declared "ready". The simple fact that you want to create something is the signal that you are "ready". This book helps us believe in ourself, and encourages to go ahead with the project, with the attitude of being as you are.
This book covers the processes that go into creating the graphic novel, such as a story, characters, developing them, plot, script, layouts, panels to name a few. All of these are covered at a depth enough to understand and grasp the essential.
Each one is a dsicpline in itself and the book does not attempt to teach how to draw, or write etc. But more importantly it teaches how to put together all of what you got, as you are, and yet be able to accomplish the goal of creating a graphic novel.
There is a very natural flow that is very easy to follow and enjoy, and inspires to get started.
