How can a writer find an artist for a comic book collaboration?

I'm a professional writer who's starting to have a little success with his fiction (short stories published, finishing a novel). I've had an idea for a story that really wants to be told in comic book form. I'm certainly not good enough to draw it myself -- so how can I find an artist to collaborate with?
Am I correct in thinking that it's sort of a seller's market? After all, the art must be more time-consuming, and plenty of artists write their own stuff. Also, I'm not looking to break into the field permanently, I just want to tell this story. However, I do like comics and have read several books on writing them and want whatever I do to be of a professional calibur -- so I don't want to just find some spaz to draw stick figures.
Should I just tell it in prose and be done with it?
