With all the writers James Patterson has working for him, I’m surprised there’s still any kind of job recession going on. The man is a conglomeration. He has the ideas and he hires writers to follow his detailed outlines and write the books, which make him a multi-mega-selling name.
Now he’s branching out to comics. According to USA TODAY, he’s now in partnership with IDW Publishing to create comic books and graphic novels. What will they be? New work? Adaptations of his past novels? Work that branches off from his already published works? Yes. Yes. Yes.
Probably around May you’ll see the first in a five-part comic series based on his YA novel, Witch & Wizard. It’ll be written by Dara Naraghi. Then in June, expect a comic adaptation of The Murder of King Tut - written by Alexander Irvine. Eventually, there will be a new series Patterson is calling Beer Belly and the Fat Boy.
Where will Patterson go next in his march to conquer the book world? Got any ideas for him?
