Comic book stories are read in individual issues and in trades or collections. Andy and Joey talk about pacing stories as single issues and how to approach writing for the trade.
Artist and writer Phil Jimenez (Astonishing X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Infinite Crisis, Otherworld, and Teen Titans) talks about action and acting on the page.
Andy and Joey are joined by writer Kyle Higgins (Nightwing, Batman Eternal, Batman Beyond 2.0) to discuss Kyle’s first creator-owned book through Image Comics, C.O.W.L. including the role of the editor on creator-owned titles, including the editor on C.O.W.L.… Andy Schmidt!
Writer Zac Atkinson (Transformers: Rescue Bots, G.I. Joe: Renegades) talks about adapting comics to animation, visualization of story and plot, and teaching the first Comics Experience Introduction to Animation Writing Course.
Andy and Joey chat about approaches to plotting, especially plotting of longer stories and future story arcs. Is this something that comes with practice? Or are there techniques that can also help?
This week Andy and Joey discuss a question about creative teams on pitches. If you’re submitting pitch pages, but planning to hire a different colorist or letterer (or whatever) for the final book, is that acceptable? Is it a good idea to submit with your less-than-final team?
