Inside The Comic Book Industry’s Latest Cool Thing…
Imagine you’re back in middle school and your favorite limited edition comic book has just been released…
You and your friends race to the local comic book shop after school to get your hands on the newest edition of “Captain America” or “Wonder Woman.”
You wait patiently in line, with 25 cents burning a hole in your pocket…
Finally, you get up to the counter and hand your pocket change to the clerk who slides over the goods.
At last you get your hands on your coveted new comic book…
And as you begin to flip the pages, a whole other world emerges…
While this may or may not have been a reality for you, we can all agree that comic books and graphic novels have played an important role in pop culture and media.
What you may or may not know is that there’s a thriving digital marketplace for NEW comics and NEW graphic novels with distribution and sales portals populating various corners of the Internet with readers of all ages scrambling to get their hands on the latest thing.
And while we all know many of the blockbusters films we’ve come to know and love are based on comics from Marvel and DC, you may not know that comics and graphic novels have paid a very significant role in the development and sale of numerous other movies and TV series, some of which might surprise you…

So what does all this have to do with you?
If you’re developing and trying to sell any kind of project, a visual depiction of your story and characters is the most compelling way to get someone interested…
For example, our data reveals that projects with LookBooks are 8 times more likely to sell than projects without.
And the cool thing about graphic novels (as opposed to LookBooks) is that there’s a market for them, meaning you can sell them to readers and not have to wait the 3-4 years (or never) it would take to make money on your script!
And if you’re an emerging creator, any revenue is a big deal, right? So here’s the math:
Short Term Revenue + Increased Traction For Your Film/TV Project =
That’s a scenario we can get behind. And we have!
Voyage has recently partnered with Creative Impulse Entertainment (CIE) to set up an entire Graphic Novel unit that not only produces award-winning comics/graphic novels but that also publishes and distributes them via the mainstream distribution platforms like Comixology, iTunes, iVerse, DriveThru, and many more.
And we’ve even invented a whole new kind of graphic novel that the distributors and press are already raving about:
Introducing The Graphic Screenplay!
This first-of-it’s-kind format seamlessly blends the visuals of a graphic novel with a traditional screenplay.
We recently completed our inaugural project, JFH: JUSTICE FOR HIRE, which is now one of the most downloaded mixed martial arts series on digital comic book platforms.
Not only is this new medium a way for you to visually showcase your story to the entertainment industry, it also creates a much needed, first-step revenue stream for the intellectual property you’ve been slaving over for so long!
PLUS, Voyage will shop the Film/TV rights of your project to buyers in entertainment.
So let’s check this other Einstein level math calculation:
World-Class Graphic Screenplay
+ Guaranteed Distribution
+ Revenue From Graphic Screenplay Sales
+ Increased Value For Film/TV Rights
+ Guaranteed Shopping of Your Film & TV Rights
= Yes! Must Take Action!
