I went over the style of writing and how different it is from what I normally do. (This is hyperlinked to my previous post)
There are arguments between comic readers about what is more important to an issue, the writing or the art?
My vote is on the writing.
Don’t get me wrong. The art is important, but without the writing there would be absolutely nothing.
Most comic book artists work off of descriptions the writers provide them. The ones who don’t are normally writing the comic and doing the art.
The art in a comic book shows the mental image of what the writer was thinking for that panel. They don’t make it up.
The words and the story are the important part. I can remember a few really great full page pieces that stand out art wise (Like this one from Old Man Logan), but the reason it sticks out to me is because of the story that led up to it.
If a book has bad art, I can get past it and keep reading. If it has bad writing, I have no reason to keep going, or ever give the book a second thought.
This is why I have put my effort into writing a comic book instead of drawing it.
There are very few books out there that are remembered for their artwork.
I GUESS … I want someone who reads my book to remember it for the story it told. Art may help, but a good script will always come out on top.
