The term 'graphic novel' is actually pretty vague, so I'll try to clarify. It can mean anything from comic book, to manga, to illustrated children's books. My work is closest to a manga, but of course I am not Japanese nor am I using the "backwards" Japanese format. In any case, I'm having trouble gathering information on publishing a graphic novel. I've encountered various comic and graphic novel publishers who have submission guidelines, but they tend to be varied and based on that particular company... which is cool if I choose that company. But I'd like to have a baseline manuscript ready for a variety of submissions, and I can't really find any standard information on the same level publishers want from regular novels. Things like formatting and whatnot. Any help would be appreciated!
