When I’m writing comics, there are a few guidelines I try to follow. These are ideas I’ve pulled together while writing hundreds of scripts, reading great comics, reviewing scripts, and talking to artists and other writers. They aren’t hard and fast rules. I break ‘em all the time! But keeping them in mind helps me feel like I’m in control of my life.
I offer some of them now in hopes that you’ll find them useful in your own comic scripting endeavors. Maybe you’ll find them helpful. Maybe not. You might disagree with them completely! And that’s all right.
What follows (no pun intended) is the first piece of short fiction that I ever sold. I had been paid money to write before. My first paid writing gigs were articles for Fangoria and White Wolf Magazine. But this was the first time I’d been paid money for one of my short stories!
“Followers of the Serpent” was a Lovecraftian/western mash-up slated to appear in Eldritch Tales Magazine. The tale is an obvious homage to Joe R. Lansdale’s “Dead in the West,” a story I read (and still read) over and over again.
