Graphic Novel Queries

If you're interested in querying a graphic novel project, or querying as an author-illustrator, please send a complete proposal to the following as a single PDF attachment. Note that I am not accepting queries from illustrators who do not have a project to pitch or script-only pitches at this time.

  • Introduction - Your elevator pitch, including comp titles
  • Story Overview - A full synopsis of your book from beginning to end
  • Audience and Format - Who is this book for? What size is it? Est. page count? Full color, b/w, or limited palette?
  • Sample Pages - At least 5 sequential sample pages; can be pencils or inks, but at least one page should be fully inked and colored. Preferable if pages are from this project, but you may also link to a portfolio demonstrating your sequential storytelling on another project.
  • Biography - Your bio. Include previous works and notable recognition/awards, if applicable.
