GROUNDBREAKING PROJECT UNVEILS SECRETS TO BECOMING PROFESSIONAL COMICS CREATOR
Publisher Eco Comics has today announced the release of its groundbreaking new series, HOW TO BREAK INTO COMIC BOOKS & GRAPHIC NOVELS.
It aims to provide the most insightful analysis ever of graphic storytelling – while uniquely imparting advice via an actual comic book story, HUMANS VS. MONSTERS.
Writer Chris Bunting says: “Virtually every comic book fan has asked one question: How do I break into comics? Many professionals have tried to grapple with an answer – some with more success than others, but arguably none ever getting to the nub of it.
“It occurred to me that the most logical and simple way to really teach people must be to immerse them within an actual comic book story. Which has never been attempted. Until now, that is.”
This pioneering analysis of graphic storytelling is weaved into fast-paced fantasy-adventure, HUMANS VS. MONSTERS. It stars a happy-go-lucky human girl – which isn’t as normal as it seems given that she lives in a world of monsters and her only family is a colossal cat-monster who dreams of becoming a comic book creator.
Advice is provided via the very theme of the story, as well as by devices such as Arrow-Boxes, which point to creative elements and discuss their purpose and use. If a character behaves in a certain way, the reasoning is provided. If a particular shot is used, the reader is told why.
Writing, art, pitching, self-promotion – every topic will be dealt with in unprecedented depth in this new digital-only, “paperless-exclusive” series from award-winning publisher Eco Comics.
HOW TO BREAK INTO COMIC BOOKS & GRAPHIC NOVELS: HUMANS VS. MONSTERS #1 is 34 pages and available now at a special introductory price of $0.99 / £0.69p.
