RCW: Writing for Comics and Graphic Novels seminar
River City Writers strike again!
This weekend I attended a seminar on Writing for Comics by Christopher Golden.
I learned a whole lot. I didn't know the nuts & bolts and now I feel like I do. It's surprising to recognize what has been on the page in front of you but you hadn't noticed as a reader.
Chris covered a lot in three hours; less is more, trust & know your artist, scene breakdown, page breakdown, panel breakdown, story arcs, and much more. Augmented with a vignette script and comic from his own BALTIMORE series for tangible examples of everything discussed.
If you're interesting in writing comics this seminar is a surefire way to ramp up quickly.
