Writing for Comics

Writing for Comics Momocon 2019!

Momocon had a robust lineup of panels this year and I wanted Writing for Comics to stand out from the crowd.

Often we write a comic script and find that it may be a little hard to understand by our artists. So, we dive deep into the realm of script writing and come up with a school of options and no direction as to which on to use.

We discussed how to develop a comic script that works with your artist by defining your expectations and communicating your story in a way that will ensure your vision is realized on the page. The panel included a small project of one to three (1-3) comic pages with Ernest McClendon (Onyx Comics) and Jonathan Hightower (Swords of Sorrow) to show how a comic script can be interpreted differently by artists.
