In You Can Do a Graphic Novel, Slate guides aspiring graphic novelists through the creation process. This highly illustrated title attempts to help the reader find their own drawing style (regardless of ability); create memorable characters, compelling plots/subplots, and engaging dialogue; and understand the graphic novel business. Also included are a display of students' work and a glossary of key terms.
Barbara Slate has created over 300 comic books and graphic novels, including Angel Love, Yuppies from Hell, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas.
