Create a Graphic Novel Using AI Tools

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

Science fiction graphic novels are a great way to bring stories to life. Starting with an existing screenplay such as "Lieutenant Henry Gallant" by H. Peter Alesso. We'll walk through the process of creating a science fiction graphic novel using ChapGPT, Midjourney, and Comic Life.


Step 1: Use ChapGPT to create the MidJourney prompts for the related graphic imagines using the screenplay for "Lieutenant Henry Gallant" by H. Peter Alesso. The prompts from ChapGPT are created by asking it to generate a scene-by-scene description of the book. ChatGPT provides a detailed set of prompt instructions based on the character's behavior and actions in the scene.


Step 2: Midjourney is a digital art tool that makes it easy to create character and scenery designs. It can create designs for the main characters such as Henry Gallant, his shipmates, and his ship. We select the "Character" option from the main menu and start creating our character designs by choosing from a variety of body types, hairstyles, facial features, and clothing options to create our characters. Once we've created our characters, we can save them as PNG files and import them into Comic Life.


Step 3: Comic Life is a powerful editing tool for creating comic books and graphic novels. We start a new project by selecting the "Graphic Novel" template and importing our script and character designs into Comic Life. We can use the script to plan out the layout of each page, adding panels and dialogue boxes as needed. We can also use the character designs to add illustrations to each panel. Comic Life can import our script and MidJourney character and background images, and then lay them out on each page of the graphic novel. Adding text bubbles for dialog.


Once we've completed our graphic novel, we can export it as a PDF or other format and share it with readers.


The cover and first scene are as follows:



The results are remarkable considering that this took less than twenty minutes for the entire process.
