An Introduction to Comic Script Writing

Writing for comics can be both freeing and terrifying. Few industries have as loose style and formatting guides as comics scripts; from the novelistic scripts of Alan Moore, the cinematic scripts of Matt Fraction and Jennifer Guzeman, Erica Shultz’s use of reference images, Neil Gaiman’s conversational letters to the artists, and to Stan Lee’s Marvel Method, there is no one right way to do it. What this course offers however is an in depth look at the different ways of writing for comics, the tutor’s practical experiences collaborating with artists, and a way of finding a style that works for you. It also offers a breakdown of comic unique elements such as; panels, the gutter, panel transitions, splash pages, and captions. Giving you the knowledge required to use them to full effect in your own work.
