Page 100 Project List

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. 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…

THE PAGE 100 PROJECT

Feel welcome to join in. It’s easy: Just pick a book, turn to page 100, and adapt it as a comic. Let me know if you do one: jasonturner@jasonturnerproject.com
