O’Neil also explains the many diverse formats for comic books including graphic novels maxi series mega series and adaptation Of course there are also dozens of guidelines for writing proposals to editors that command attention and get results. I spent some time reading through this cover to cover as I'm currently working on some comic book scripts and thought it might be helpful I didn't learn much from this I didn't already know There were a couple of good bits one on characterization very similar to what an author or actor does in theatre and one on script preparation going from plot to outline to prose very similar to what I have been doing Other than that I found it very basic information on storytelling and some specifics on comic book writing but nothing I hadn't already gleaned from years of comic book reading and other sources on comics writing that I've read over the years I suppose I shouldn't be surprised as this book is older than most of the others I've perused in the past I was torn between giving this one two or three stars but hey it's about comics and has lots of pretty pictures The script examples O'Neil includes far too many of his own I felt are always interesting I particularly liked seeing a Charles Moulton Wonder Woman script from the '40s I'm guessing and seeing how similar it was to one that could have been written today

The DC Comics Guide to Writing ComicsFor any writer who wants to become an expert comic book storyteller The DC Comics Guide to Writing Comics is the definitive one stop resourceIn this valuable guide Dennis O’Neil a living legend in the comics industry reveals his insider tricks. There is a common idea that you have to know the formula to break it This book gives the formula to DC comics It is sort of sad and demystifying but for the most part maybe we could already see through it I am glad DC is not overrun by this formula but I can definitely see its presence The author says every super hero story should start with action so someone picking up your book will buy it Now I want to go to a comic store and look to see if that is the general rule What if it is and I never noticed Am I a bad reader Also the author makes the claim that most people don't read caption boxes in comics I find it hard to believe that people are so lazy reading comics that they just look at pictures read sound words and a few voice balloons That would also be sad Anyway if you are interested in writing comics this may give you some direction Let's just hope you couple it with Alan Moore's condemnation of most of the things this book suggests in his 'Writing for Comics'
