Crafting Your Graphic Novel Idea with ChatGPT

Students will create and brainstorm their graphic novel idea, and then use ChatGPT to fully develop the plan for their end product.

Objective: By the end of this project, you will have a clear idea for your graphic novel, including a summary of your story and descriptions of your main characters. You will also have a plan for a 10-slide graphic novel.


1. Brainstorming: Start by brainstorming ideas for your graphic novel. Think about the kind of story you want to tell and the characters you want to include. Remember, your story can be about anything you want - it could be a superhero story, a mystery, a fantasy adventure, or even a slice-of-life tale. Write down all your ideas.

2. Discussion: Once you have a few ideas, discuss them with your classmates. Share your ideas and get feedback. You might find that talking about your ideas helps you develop them further.

3. Character and Story Development: After you've settled on an idea, it's time to start developing your story and characters. Think about who your characters are, what they want, and what obstacles they might face. Write a summary of your story and descriptions of your main characters.

4. Working with ChatGPT: Now, it's time to use ChatGPT to help develop your story. You can use ChatGPT to brainstorm ideas, develop your characters, and even write parts of your story. Here's an example of how you might use ChatGPT:

Prompt Example: “I'm working on a graphic novel about a group of kids who discover a magical forest near their home. The main character is a 12-year-old girl named Lily who is brave, curious, and loves nature. Can you help me develop the story and characters further?”

Remember, the more specific you are with your prompt, the better ChatGPT will be able to help you.

5. Planning Your Slides: Finally, start planning out your 10-slide graphic novel. Think about what scenes you want to include and how you can tell your story visually. Sketch out a rough plan for each slide.

Deliverable: By the end of the week, submit your story summary, character descriptions, ChatGPT prompts and responses, and your 10-slide graphic novel plan.

Remember, this is just the beginning - you'll be using Midjourney and Google Slides to bring your graphic novel to life in the coming weeks!
