Additional Information

Now there’s nothing stopping you from getting your book in front of thousands or even millions of people. Suddenly you can’t blame anyone for not giving you a chance. You can only blame yourself for not trying. So roll up your sleeves, sharpen your pencils and fire up your Internet because we are about to make and sell comics! Jason Brubaker’s graphic novel reMIND raised over $125,000 in pre-order sales on Kickstarter, won the Xeric Award and made ALA’s Great Graphic Novels for Teens List.

I've been writing and drawing comics for most of my life in some fashion, and I've read quite a few books on the subject. As the years have gone by, it seemed that every new "how-to" book simply retread what others had done before. A section on how to come up with ideas...followed by one on anatomy...basic storytelling...all of which would be accompanied by illustrations of spandex covered men and women with extreme physiques in equally extreme poses. Yawn. As you can probably guess, I'm a bit tired of the superhero thing representing comics as a medium, as well as the newbie approach to a "how-to" book about making them.

I'd like something new; something that goes beyond the basics and actually tells me stuff I don't already know.

Unnatural Talent is that book.

Jason Brubaker knows his stuff, and it shows in this book. It covers everything you could hope to learn about how to make your stories a reality, using the internet, and a... Read more
Brubaker makes things simple to learn and accessible to anyone interested in making it in this shifting world of publication. Not only that, he's humorous and talented, which makes for an easy read. This has definitely inspired me to dust off a few ideas which have sat stagnant on my brain-shelf and become a self-made author. (Just try to get an agent and be published in the traditional sense today! They only seem to consider artists who have already been published, which kinda defeats the purpose of first-time queries.)
This book is wonderful. I believe this book is heartfelt and realistic. Jason Brubaker tells you like it is with no flowery language to hide what it's like when it comes to being an indie artist.

This book is not your typical how to book, it doesn't tell you how to write a script or how to draw. You'll have to look for a more specialized book for that. Instead it gives tips on motivating yourself to start and finish a project as well as what to do with it afterwards like building a website and how to print. It shares fantastic advice on how to build a fan base as well as what to focus on that's important and why. If you're one of those people looking for those answers then I highly recommend picking up this book. I know it's going to stay on my shelf.

While I know this book is targeted towards those who want to make graphic novels I do feel that the information can be roughly applied to indie novelists or indie creators in general. There just may be certain parts... Read more
