The Page 100 Project [Mar. 19th, 2010|10:22 pm]

So ages ago, Dave Howard suggested to me that it might be an interesting idea for cartoonists to try adapting a part of a novel they liked. And then recently when JD Sallinger died, that notion came back to me, and then I thought oh it might be interesting to attempt to do a comic of some portion of one of his books. And as I sat on the couch staring at the shelves of books, I thought it might be fun to try it with different books. Maybe just a page. Maybe the SAME PAGE from each book. Say, page 100. And thus...


Feel welcome to join in.

Here is my first attempt, from Michael Chabon's "Yiddish Policemen's Union"

I am keeping a list here of the pages people have done. Email me if you do one! jasonturner >at< jasonturnerproject.com

I like this concept, and your take on it, a lot (Though I'm biased). I must admit, I'd rather see you adapt several pages from one book than one from several, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what new inspirations (and which novels) you come up with. Maybe I will finish that crack I took at Dylan Thomas.

Yeah, I am not sure where this will go. Something interesting to me in the few other books I've cracked to see if I would want to do them, is just how different novels operate from comics. So much more interior.

You should return to Dylan Thomas!
