Words for Pictures: The Art and Business of Writing Comics and Graphic Novels
Penned by best-selling Marvel Comics writer Bendis, this guide crams years of comics biz knowledge into less than 300 pages. In it, Bendis reveals the tools and techniques he and other top-of-their-game creators use to whip up hit stories for the genre, guiding aspiring comickers through the process from idea to script to finished sequential art. Of course, these are illustrated with examples from popular titles like The Avengers, Ultimate Spider-Man and Uncanny X-Men, to name a few. In addition to a foreword from the legendary Joe Quesada, Bendis also pulls in other artists and writers to offer tips and observations on the creative process and the comics business throughout. Script samples, a glossary of industry terms and interactive writing exercises offer a jumpstart for the next generation of scribes.
