Graphic Novel Idea

i've been working on an idea for the next Great American Graphic Novel, to be written, drawn, inked and lettered by me. i suck at drawing, so that might be a problem, but i can ink, i think. My lettering skills are inconsistent, but hey, that's what they invented Comic Sans for, right?

This Great American Graphic Novel, or G.A.G.N. let's call it, will be aimed at the adult market. i plan to include lots of four letter words, sex, gratuitous violence, and women with bullet shaped titties. i'm still undecided on a title. So far, i have a couple of possibilities.

Death Marcher
Death Takes a Powder
Deadly Sin
The Deadliest Sin
Death in WiFi
A Dumass Way to Die
Death is for Dumasses
Kill Me Deadlily
Bicycle of Death
Mr. Killee, Killer of Genius
Hit Parade of Death
Death on a Shingle
The Dead Have No Eyeballs
Sugar Deadly
Color Me Die
Wacky Train to Deathville
The Murderer Who Liked to Kill People
Demarcation of Death
Demarcation of Death II, The Awakening
The Stoogemaster
Traffic Circle of Death
A Fine Way to Die, Wally
Dying is an Ugly Business
The Death Tram
The Death Pram
Only 45 Minutes to Deadway
More Death's A-Killin'
Take A Memo, Death
Why Do the Dead Always Die?
A Fun Time for Dying
Do We Die Now?
Did We Die Yet?
Fuck, I'm Dead!
Murder at the Circle K
Even Killers Get the Blues
Only Killers Get the Blues
Why Do Killers Get the Blues?
18" Rims of Death
For Death's Sake
The Drama Club Murders
A Dharma Death
Murder by Fiddlesticks
Doing a Death Right
Killer of the Dead
Killer of the Dead II, The Awakening
North Dallas Deadly, A Sports Thriller
The Killer Who Left the Toilet Seat Up
Deadly Games the Dead Play
Core of Death
The Semantics of Murder
Cubicle of the Dead
Cuticle of the Dead
The Chronic Killer
'Tis a Far Better Death
It Slices, It Dices, It Dies
Death Knoll
Death Knell

i particularly like Death Knell, but i want to save it for a mass market paperback idea i have. i'll change the name to Death Nell, and the story will involve a kick-ass girl crime scene investigator/hooker named Nell, who is also a vampire hunter. Or maybe she'll be a vampire herself, who knows. i still need to do the market research on that.

But getting back to my graphic novel idea. The working title for my G.A.G.N. is currently Statute of Limitations, which has a nice ring to it. i haven't plotted the whole story out yet, but i have the basic outline in mind. It's about a family of rabbits in space. They go around having adventures and helping people.

i also have a cover design. Wanna see it? Here it is.

Don't steal my idea.

I guess you're not entirely ruling out the sexblogging idea.

Someday, your interstellar rabbits are going to meet my adventurous chinchillas, and the fur is going to fly.

Heh! I found it! Must see TV is on NBC! I hope you all got a chance to see, "My Name is Earl"! These people have found my life story.

What I said earlier about following you down whatever path you chose....
Okay, I'm gonna say: Sugar Deadly.
Let the bunny idea go, though. Now if they were bunny followers of Shub-Niggurath, I could get behind it.

You got to have sex and violence in the title, How about "Death and Pussy"?
Also, have a girl with bullet shaped tits, but she should be evil. Your heroine, should have very round tah-tahs. And instead of hairy or clean shaven, she should have that landing stip thing.

What's wrong with "Bullet Shaped Titties"?

Posted by: Pursuit on Sep. 21, 2005

"women with bullet shaped titties"

Annie needs manga art for this.

My vote is for "Cubicle of the Dead." I won't go into the reasons, but there should at least be mention of bullet-shaped titties.

Actually, I read a sci fi novel about some bunnies who lived on earth. They had an culture that glorfied viloence but did not actually commit it.

Alliteration is always good: "A Girl and A Gun"

Posted by: Victor on Sep. 21, 2005

Actually I'm now thinking of starting a band, "The Bullet Shaped Titties".

Posted by: Pursuit on Sep. 21, 2005

So these bunnies will use "four letter words, have sex, engage in gratuitous violence, and have bullet shaped titties"?

I wonder what Neil Gaiman would do with this...

Posted by: Mark on Sep. 21, 2005

If you add flesheating zombies and at least one hot well-hung male lead then you can count me in, dear :-)

Posted by: Ron on Sep. 21, 2005

Sounds good to me too.

I have to admit... I busted a gut reading these.
