I’ve collected these graphic novels because the combination of illustrations and words inspire me, connect me with real characters, and take me on adventures to other worlds and ideas.
I hope they take you on a journey too.
Books on character design and story development help me to create memorable and engaging characters. For those interested in creating your own Graphic novel, Scott McCleod has a few books specifically focusing on this.
'The Art of' books go into details about story, character and world design. It's a great way to get inspired, (or depressed, depending on your current level of confidence).
