Working together on a GN

Discussion started on

First post here so forgive any gaffs please! I am working with an illustrator on a middle-grade graphic novel. I am writing and he is illustrating. So far we've done quite well. Wondering if anyone out there has gone this route. We are considering self-publishing when it's done. :secrets

 :pickle I have created many books both ebooks and print. What is the problem you are asking about?

I think PenQuill is asking about collaborating? I think that is quite common for graphic novels. I know of someone who had a team of people working on their project, having writers, pencilers, inkers and painters. (Forgive me if I don't know the correct terms for these roles, my books are considered graphic novel hybrids as they are for very young children, but are not true GNs)

The ones I've worked on/had published were along the lines of what Arte was describing. I co-wrote and provided linework (pencils and inks) and we had a colorist and letterer on the team as well. There are many who go it alone, though for a GN that seems like quite a monumental undertaking to me.
