Re your comments below:

"Actually, she contributed a script cycle for Hellblazer last year, so it's more that her writing seemed appropriate- -and she's a fan of the comic--than that she started out writing comics and transitioned to books. I think Greg Rucka and Max Allan Collins did it the other way: coming from comics into text-only."

Actually, not only did Greg Rucka's first Kodiak novel precede his comics work (as others have pointed out), but Al Collins's first novel, BAIT MONEY, was published in 1973, nearly five years before his first comics work, "Angeltop," his first script for the DICK TRACY newspaper strip, began on 26 December 1977. By the time he got the TRACY gig, he'd already had a half-dozen or so novels published, and at least three more in the pipeline.
