The DC Comics Guide to Writing Comics

This is a definitive one-stop resource for any writer who wants to become an expert comic book storyteller. A living legend in the comics book industry, author Dennis O'Neil reveals his insider tricks and no-fail techniques for comic storytelling. He shares information on various methods of writing scripts (full scripts versus plot first). In addition, he reveals procedures for developing a story structure, building subplots, creating well-rounded characters, and much more.

Dennis O'Neil is considered by many to be a master of the comics form and the dean of American comics writers. For more than 20 years, he edited and wrote Batman.

In this book, O'Neil explains the many diverse formats for comic books, including graphic novels, maxi-series, mega-series, and adaptation. He also provides dozens of guidelines for writing proposals to editors that command attention and get results. The book features 70 black and white illustrations.
