The Art of Comics Scripting Explored In Panel Two
Future comics writers and those interested in the art of comics writing can look forward to March's release of Panel Two: More Comic Book Scripts by Top Wriiters. This follow-up to the popular Panel One showcases the scripts to nine great comic book stories, giving a rarely-seen glimpse behind the scenes at the way comics are made. With script and plot examples from such luminaries as best-selling author Peter David, Golden Age great Otto Binder, and leading comics theoretician Scott McCloud, readers will be exposed to a wide array of comics writing techniques and styles.
