Bolstered by a stellar line-up of the comics industry 's most feted talents, this set of 14 interviews offers both a candid and entertaining insight into the process and experience of writing a comic book. Interviewer Salisbury has done well to assemble a set of interviewees that represent some of the industry's greatest successes (Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman), convention-challenging leaders (Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis) and pioneers of superhero comics (Dan Jurgens, Peter David, Chuck Dixon). Fans will immediately question the absence of the industry's biggest name: Alan Moore. However, Salisbury is quick to note that his absence was down to "sheer volume of work" (Hooray!). Besides, nearly every interviewee cites Moore's gargantuan influence, so he is hardly missing. Gaiman comes across as incredibly well read, while Morrison's approach is either spectacularly ambitious or just plain bonkers. Thanks to Salisbury's probing interview technique, we get an excellent behind the scenes look at the trials and tribulations of a craft that is both challenging and rewarding, in an industry that is not as open to creativity as you might think. As you would expect, there is no clear path to success, beyond the obvious aptitude. However, the most common thread is a rapacious love of the medium and sheer bloody-minded tenacity (often masquerading as bare-faced arrogance in Frank Miller's case!). Aspiring British writers will quickly notice that legendary Brit comic 2000 AD was the breeding ground for much of the current top talent and is the first stop for US talent scouts. Insightful for professionals, mouth-watering for fans and wonderfully inspirational for wannabe scribes, roll on Volume Two! --Danny Graydon


The biggest names in comics scriptwriting talk candidly and frankly about their profession, their approach to writing and the comics industry as a whole. Through a series of interviews, these luminaries in the comics field reveal the mechanics of writing for comics and, in the process, a great deal about themselves. Packed with personal information, contentious views and humorous anecdotes, this is both an exploration of the writer's craft and a who's who of the hottest comics' talent around today, for fans, professionals, would-be writers and for anyone who's ever wondered exactly how the writer's mind works. Gathers together the best writers working in comics today, including Todd McFarlane (Spawn), Garth Ennis (Preacher), Frank Miller (Dark Knight Returns, Sin City), Grant Morrison (Invisibles, JLA) and Neil Gaiman (Sandman), with extracts from the writers' original scripts.

Excellent round-up of top-notch talents 22. Dezember 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

If you're looking for information about how to write comic book scripts, this book should be tops on your list. Through interviews with several bright stars on the comics scene, we are treated to a fairly in-depth treatment of how they work, how they got started, some of the problems they've faced, and more. Of particular interest are the answers to the questions about the "method" used by each of these writers to actually get their scripts down on paper. The discussion isn't limited to mere "plot-style" vs. "full-script style". The writers provided a detailed view of how they sit down and begin the task of writing stories in comic-book format -- from outlining, to thumbnail sketches, to actual scripting, the discussion on these and other topics is invaluable.
I admit that I haven't heard of some of the folks interviewed here, but I read every one, and can honestly say that there's something of value in every single interview. Interesting and insightful -- you won't be sorry!
There Are No Secrets 21. Juli 2007

Almost every writer here has a different way that they approach comics writing, and no two writers "broke in" to the business the same way--once someone breaks in, they putty that hole shut (or so it's rumored in the industry...). Recommended for comics fans and aspiring writers, but be forewarned--this isn't a "how to" manual. I would also recommend the second volume (Writers on Comics Scriptwriting, Vol. 2), as it has in-depth interviews with the "next generation" of comic book writers so is a little more relevant than the first volume for writers looking to break into comic books today.
Great for fans, not so great for scriptwriters. 2. September 2014

This is a fan mag done by a fan for fans. The talent he interviews are amazing but sometimes the questions he asks are inane. If you are a fan then this is a worthwhile read but if you are a writer looking for nuts and bolts advice on the process of generating a comic script then you will be disappointed. You got to wade through a lot of pointless chatter to get those rare nuggets of wisdom. There are no complete examples of comic scripts only small one or two page excerpts. The talent he interviews is cool but this was not a worthwhile book.
Informative & Insightful 15. März 2011

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down and in a matter of three days, I was staring at the blank last page just wishing for more.

This would prove an enjoyable read for any comics fan or anyone who is interested in taking a peek behind the curtain of the industry. All of the writers interviewed here (most of which are practically house hold names) share a lot of about themselves, how they broke into the industry, their influences, and what they'd still like to accomplish somewhere down the road.

If you write in the sci-fi field, there's definitely something to be learned from these masters of the sequential storytelling craft.

I tip my hat to the author, Mark Salisbury, for asking some great, thought-provoking questions to the folks he interviewed. Everything was compiled very well and was very engaging. I thank him showing the readers another side of the comics industry.

I found the whole thing very fascinating and look forward to getting my hands on volume 2.
Excellent example 20. Mai 2007

Lots of filler in this book, but, sprinkled through it are some nice tips. Also, the book is filled with excellent example pages of comic scripts. All in all a helpful book.
