Now Available: The Night Driver

Well, I assume it's available... I just got a couple of comp copies of The Night Driver – my first graphic novel and first published work in several years – in the mail.

Purely a work-for-hire assignment, I was commissioned by CinemaGraphix last year to adapt a screenplay by John Cork into graphic novel form, and it was illustrated by newcomer Christopher Legasse. Although the story isn't my own, it was a real challenge for me as a writer to take a script intended for film (which has sound and motion) and make it work in comics form (static images and text), especially as it's a suspense story, a decidedly unusual genre for comic books.

Overall, I think the final book turned out pretty well. I hope that it does well for Moonstone and CinemaGraphix, and I want to thank CGX honchos Ed Polgardy and Darin Scott for the opportunity to work on the project. It was a challenge, but I learned a lot.

If you can't find a copy at your locals comics shop, I'm sure the fine folks at Moonstone will be happy to sell you one!
