In-house designer James Gillespie converses with acclaimed illustrator and graphic novelist Scott Chantler about his newest graphic novel Two Generals. Scott spoke with James about the process he went through to create the book and the various differences between creating a fictional story and the research it takes to create a non-fiction fact-based graphic novel.
Scott has also created a companion blog at Two-Generals.com where he chronicled his research and creative decisions for the book — a great resource for any teacher or history enthusiast.
Two Generals will be released October 27, 2010. It can be pre-ordered or purchased at Chapter's Indigo.
