You know what I'd really love to do? Write an ongoing comic book series about a family of outcasts trying to stay together despite tragedy and the centrifugal nature of life -- an insane amount of leading characters, multiple interwoven plotlines. It'd be a little funny, a little sad, a little ironic, but no gun fights or car chases or stuff exploding. No pirates, cyborgs, zombies, monsters, ninjas, monkeys, or invading alien hordes. It'd be my epic. Would anyone illustrate it? Would anyone publish it? Would anyone read it? I think my chances are slim. Hey, who knows? Maybe I've already started on it. One hundred issues already written that no one's ever read. Thousands of pages ready to go. My ambitious unmarketable magnum opus.
