Well, at long last, on the day I contracted to do so, I delivered to my editor the manuscript of my book Creating Graphic Novels: Adapting and Marketing Stories for a Multi-Million Dollar Industry (formerly known as Paper Movies: Adapting Stories as Graphic Novels). The combination of text and graphics was a lot of work, since I wanted to make the images be more than just supplements to the text. I think I succeeded.
Along the way, I became very fond of my creation, Professor Exposition. He’s an almost unfailingly cheerful fellow, and yet not obnoxious about it. I think I got very playful with him. He gets to have the last word, as it were.
