Glad to see others working on their own projects too. I tried creating a comic/manga and the art and story were good, but I'm just not good at drawing action scenes to well So I'm converting it to a light novel type format. That way I can work on detail the pictures while not having to do too many!

As for the manga vs comic type discussion, it's like some people above are saying manga is just the Japanese word for comic. When people say manga style it's kinda incorrect since their is no true style to comics, it's just whatever you want. I think the closest thing would be to say Japanese influenced maybe. Since you were influenced by Japanese comics. So Yeah i think the guy above me is right

That's a cool idea for a Light Novel; I'm writing a few Light Novels, one of them is called "Life With Bastet" where a schoolboy and the Egyptian Cat Goddess unexpectedly become roommates after Bastet becomes trapped on Earth and the portal to the Underworld closes.

Depending on where the story takes place, you could gain local interests. Scott Pilgrim used places in Toronto for their comic and as a result it is well favoured by my friends who live/have lived there. The real difficulty is promotion - most manga artists are backed by a publishing company that does all this for them.

I write, but sometimes I think it would be really fun to have someone to illustrate my ideas into comics. I had a friend who was really good at drawing and we did have an Revolutionary Girl Utena-like story but we never finished it. It was too bad, because as I recall it wasn't a bad idea for a story and the art was okay.

Hey would anyone happen to know any manga artists that will work for other people and not just the company they work for if they work for a company? If you do could u please let me know because I have about 7 chapters worth of story for a manga but I am horrible a t drawing and my friends who can draw can't draw in anime/manga format. I would appreciate any information anyone may have.
