So here's the opening to my summer project (a graphic novel...comic book story...whatever) that's a bit of a shameless rip off of Plastic Forks but oh well. The style progresses from this, to more like Dave McKean as the story goes on and it gets less action more physcological. I've looked at mainly Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, Stray Toasters, Watchmen, V for Vendetta and Plastic Forks.
There was also a good book on orginal graphic novels from agggges ago. By that I mean centuries not last decade. It's called Wordless Books by David A.Berona if anyone's interested.
Bassically the story is Engleby (by Sebastian Faulks) meets I Robot meets Minority Report with a lot of other stuff too but that's the main thing. I'm making it up a bit as I go along, I've only written half of it but I was anxious to start drawing because it's also going to force me to practice drawing pretty much everything.
Hopefully it'll be decent. It'll make more sense when I've done more of it.
