I had a series of tweets about this idea months ago, but I’m not sure if I’ve blogged about it until now. I’m hoping that a comics publisher will pick up the ball and run with it.
I’d love to have an illustrated graphic novel containing interviews with some of the comic industry’s most illustrious personalities. Allow me to explain. Each section of the graphic novel would feature a short interview with a famous creator such as Frank Miller. The interview would then be set into a script, as if the creator and the interviewer are simply two characters in a comic, and illustrated. All interviews would appear to take place in the actual comics the creators worked on: Gaiman would observe Morpheus’ funeral as he discussed how he created the Endless; Lee would watch a brawl between Spider-Man and the Green Goblin from the Brooklyn Bridge.
The work could be a yearly series as more creators agreed to interviews. Just a thought.
