10 AI-Generated Comic Book Pitches
Writing by ChatGPT, Art by Midjourney.
I told ChatGPT: “Give me 10 comic book pitches, including the art style they would be drawn in. Make them wildly original.” Then I took those pitches, entered them into Midjourney, and made a teaser image for each comic. The results feel like the line-up for an indie comics studio. What do you think? Should I make any of these?
