Every script in this volume shows you something. Gaiman's reads like a personal note to the artist, Wolfman shows how plot-first can work, McDuffie shows you how to work in a recap, Kevin Smith shows a more movie-script style of writing and Kurt Busiek's entry... heck, when I read the original comic book I thought it was one of the greatest comic book stories I ever read, but the script for "The Nearness of You" just made it all the more powerful.
If you want to try to write comics, you could do a lot worse than picking up this book.
1) There is no set format for comic scripts, so seeing examples of how other people write theirs is invaluable.
2) It can be hard to find sample comic scripts online, especially by the top names in the field. Here's nine of them in one shot.
Reading this book will give you great insight into how comics are made, and also how some of the best creators in the field approach their craft.
Thanks a lot mister Gertler.
