SCRIPTS

There are two methods that most comic book writers use for writing their stories;   Full Script and Plot.  A FULL Script has all the descriptions, dialogue and even panel layouts already written.  The artist supplies only the pictures as described.

The PLOT method is different, the writer gives only a very vague description leaving the images up to the artist.  Many artists prefer this method because it gives them more freedom to create.  Once the pages are drawn the writer comes up with all the dialogue and narration.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both styles.

The Scripts here are from a variety of sources and writers.  They each demonstrate the different ways writers work with artists and handle their scripts.  Give them a look through and choose 4-5 pages to illustrate.  The pages should be consecutive because we want to see your storytelling and pacing.  Don't start drawing anything until we discuss in class.  At this point you should just be reading them.
