[EDIT-25th-June 2019. The length of a page strand has been altered in order to better serve the Fan-Fiction Board. The knock-on result is that my general description of where some of these observations lie within the now old page structure is misleading. You will be taken to the appropriate thread but you will need to roughly -double- my estimates]

I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes posting here as I may not have posted enough to 'earn' the right but I like to scour old posts to find words of wisdom from Mr Byrne about writing comics. Here are some observations I've found.

Scripting & Pacing.


This one about comic book writers needing to think visually is something I find very helpful. 


Again, Mods,etc. Please delete if this post is inappropriate.

This is a great thread (that could be a book on how to draw!) - it would be amazing to collect a lot of JB's musings on stories that he had planned or ideas on characters - lots of gems to be mined here :)

The whole thread is a wonderland of comic-book education but specifically, I am linking to it here for JB's observations on inking.

Nice observations in character and how their personality/power/character affects their movement.
