Someone was asking again what comics scripts look like. I guess I can’t expect all students to use Google. There is in fact a comic book script archive. And, here on this site, I can show you:
DESOLATION JONES #7 (yes, the series will come back some day)
FELL #1 (yes, the serial will be back, we’re working on it but life gets in the way)
and MINISTRY OF SPACE #1.
I can show you these because I own them. I’ve had several people say "I don’t like this non-superhero shit, show me a PLANETARY or THE AUTHORITY or NEXTWAVE script." Because, you know, they’re entitled to it. But I don’t own those, so I can’t release the scripts. And, honestly, if you intend to learn scripting only from superhero comics you like, you’re really not getting the point of learning how to write scripts, or of learning to write. You learn from everything.
And when I were a lad, living in a ditch by side o’ t’road, we only had one page of JUDGE DREDD script from a 2000AD Summer Special to go on. Count yourselves lucky.
