10 Famous Novelists Who Have Dabbled in Comics

This week, we were delighted to come across You’ll Have to Save That For Another Time, a comic written by Dave Eggers and drawn by Noah Van Sciver, over at Trip City. Unaware as we were that Eggers had any talent for the comic strip, we were inspired to go hunting for other noted novelists who’ve made forays into the graphic form, whether official (that is, published) or personal. Keep in mind that we’re focusing on novelists who went to the colorful side as opposed to the other way around, so you won’t find Neil Gaiman (mastermind as he is), Warren Ellis, or their wonderful ilk here. Check out some novelists who can also write comics after the jump, and if we missed your favorite cross-over, be sure to add it to our list in the comments.

Dave Eggers

We don’t know much about this collaboration, but we have heard that Eggers once wrote a comic strip for SF Weekly entitled Smarter Feller, so he may have some experience in the area. Eggers also edits the Best American Nonrequired Reading series, which often includes alternative comics. Read the whole comic here.
