What a brilliant series of graphic novels this is, also turned into a television series and now a feature film, directed by Steven Spielberg.  What started in Belgium as a comic detective series, soon became translated into almost every language - the popularity was such.

 

 

This page about the Tin Tin graphic novels is under construction

 

 

 

As a boy I looked forward to my adventure fix from comics. TV Century 21 was one of my favourites. I also liked reading about Spiderman, Superman, Iron Man and Batman. I wasn't so keen on the Incredible Hulk or the Fantastic Four. 

 

Now we have so many superheroes to choose from its bewildering. I also liked reading about vampires and werewolves in the Strange Tales comics. My father would read the comics I bought and enjoy them as much as I did. It's hardly surprising then that there is a big market for longer stories

 

Since then, the comic has come of age as the graphic novel. Why? Because the stories have developed feature length, with superb quality artwork and colouring. It's no wonder that film companies are snapping up the film rights when the stories are virtual storyboards for a film. Indeed, the direction of many superhero films stems directly from the artwork of many graphic novels. What with digital technology and photoshop type applications, some graphic novels are now being produced from digital photographs, retouched and coloured to make the stills appear as graphic novel frames. See X-Men Origins. It's come full circle.

 

The films made from such graphic novel origins are though pretty damn good. One of the best in translation is probably Spiderman and now Iron Man. To my mind Batman is a close third, followed by Superman. it's a difficult translation to evaluate. The problem is just how far removed from reality the audience will accept. The answer to that is as far away as you can imagine, provided there is still a human element binding the concept to everyday reality. I really enjoyed Halle Berry as Catwoman, but then I like chic flicks.

 

Now of course we have Tin Tin directed by Steven Spielberg no less, and real actors faces digitally masked onto the graphic characters for realism. The world is thus truly your oyster. Imagine it, draw it, and who knows? And what a wonderful medium to get involved in. With just a few sheets of paper and some inks, you can put bring stories to life; make characters real. But it is an art-form all of its own with rules (more conventions or guidelines) as to layout, text, etc. 

 

In fact, Blueplanet Netdirect Productions are looking for graphic artists, inkers and colourists to help them develop the John Storm adventure series into fullly fledged graphic novels: to be printed and distributed in the usual way, and, if the technology permits, for download to be read on an ipad or Kindle reader. Why not take a look at the John Storm link below to see an example chapter from the first of Jameson Hunter's books: Kulo Luna
