How To Format Your Comic Book Script: Script Frenzy Tip #23

We’ve discovered an illustration-filled guide to comic book scriptwriting over at Five Sprockets. If you are writing a comic book script this month, check it out for inspiration and guidance.

Here’s more from the site: “unlike screenwriting where generally accepted formatting guidelines are largely agreed upon (some may argue this), scriptwriting for comic books has no such generally accepted standards. Publishing houses like Dark Horse and Marvel have put forth script-submission guidelines, but they are all different. There are, however, some generally accepted elements common throughout, such as pages, panels, captions, balloons, and sound effects.”

To help all the aspiring screenwriters, comic book writers, and playwrights participating in the Script Frenzy writing marathon, we will feature a new script writing tool or tip every day this month. Read all the advice at this link.
