Jake’s Review Forum

Published by under Review Forums

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

I’m writing a superhero novel that will be more emotional than action, so it’ll be more of a drama.

Here is an origin I am trying to use for the super-human community.  The meteor that destroyed the dinosaur population gave off some strange gas that tainted several primitive humans and eventually formed a second race, identified and named in the 1960s as Homo Super by Dr. Abson. Homo Super or Superhumans as they are now called have all become carriers of the A-Gene. The A-Gene is the gene that is what carries the persons’ super-powers, which have since then varied extremely widely.  Super-humans vary differently with their powers and level of strength. This means that some are far stronger than others.

Interview Tips for the Publishing Industry

Agent Kristin has some suggestions for applicants to her literary agency, but I think they’re mostly applicable to prospective publishing professionals across the board.  Even for applicants looking at the comic books/graphic novels side of the publishing industry.
