About a year ago I had finished the first issue of a four-issue comic book miniseries. I submitted it to a couple of comic book companies, and after they rejected it, I published it myself on the Amazon Kindle.
While working on the second issue, I decided the story would work better as an actual novel than a graphic novel, so I rewrote it as a novel and published it in both print and electronic formats as [I]The Scientific Method (a Wandering Koala(TM) tale)[/I].
One year later and that first issue I published on the Kindle is still selling. I felt bad there was no promised second issue for those faithful readers, so I decided to write it.
Above are three pages from the comic. I still need to letter and color them, but I'm really happy with how it is turning out.
I still feel the entire story works better as a novel, but this particular issue ended up being one chapter and does work better as a comic book. So I'll publish it with a note at the end that the rest of the story can be read in the novel.
If this sells like the first issue, I may actually create a few more. We'll see.
