Points on Submitting a Graphic Novel: Robert Kirkman

Robert Kirkman

Robert Kirkman

  • Find an artist before pitching.
  • If submitting to a publisher, write short, compelling pitches, rather than a script (five pages of comic with a one-page synopsis–shorter, if possible); My publisher, Image Comics, looks at each pitch that comes in.
  • Hone your scriptwriting skills so you can actually follow-through if your pitch is accepted.
  • The pages submitted should show the premise in an engaging way.
  • Make it as original as possible…but not too weird.
