Deconstructing Comics #217: Comics scripts analyzed

A recent Comics Reporter article by Ng Suat Tong on “Writing, Collaboration, and Superheroes” (and a rebuttal to it from Chris Allen Online) got us to thinking: Do modern writers give sufficient instruction to artists? How much of what you see on the page came from the writer, and how much from the artist? Are some artists not carrying out the writer’s suggestions, and is that because the artist had a better idea, because the writer’s instructions were impractical, or because the artist is simply, um, not that good?

To explore these questions, Kumar, Mulele, and Tim chose four scripts from the Comicbook Script Archive site, and read them alongside the finished comics that resulted from them: Punisher Max #39, by Garth Ennis and Leandro Fernandez; Y: the Last Man #18, by Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra; Daredevil 28, by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev; and (the ringer of the lot) Batman: the Killing Joke, by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. Here’s the resulting discussion!

Comic Book Pitt #40 – Retconned!

deadpool 900

Listen to this episode

One day in October when we were recording episode #40, the Scarlet Witch appeared in the Comic Book Pitt and simply whispered “No more podcasts.”

We floated between realities until we were finally retconned back into existence in our own universe. For us it was mere minutes, but apparently we were gone for 24 days.

That original 40th episode is still floating out there…somewhere…

The cover scans for this episode can be found on the CBP Flickr site.

The music in this episode is by Ike & Tina Turner.
