Part One Part Two Welcome to part three of writing for comic books. This is the part where we actually begin to do some writing. But before we do, there is one other thing to consider. Once you're actually writing a comic book, you'll already know the answer to the question I ask below, and once you've gotten into the writing, you'll automatically take it into consideration with every issue you write.
What kind of comic book are you writing? This question is not about the genre you're writing for. It doesn't matter whether you're writing a superhero, fantasy, romance, or mystery comic book. It does matter whether you're writing an ongoing series, such as The Amazing Spider-Man, or a limited series, such as The Watchmen.
If you're writing an ongoing series, chances are you'll have first-time readers for every issue. You can't count on those readers knowing anything about your characters or your setting.
What does that mean to you?
It means you have to briefly introduce your characters in every issue. If you've ever read The Amazing Spider-Man for any length of time, you've probably noticed that Aunt May was always referred to as "frail" either in a caption or one of Peter Parker's thought-bubbles. Far more often than not, you'll find a quick reference to Uncle Ben being killed in a robbery attempt.
On the splash page of every issue you'll find an abbreviated recap of how Peter became Spider-Man. If that kind of thing is considered necessary for a character as well-known as Spider-Man, you'll definitely want something similar for any original, ongoing series you write.
In part one I mentioned writing The Southern Knights. If you haven't known me for a couple of decades, chances are you have no idea who the Southern Knights are.
That's why we added the following text on our splash pages very early in the series: David Shenk - alias Electrode - Atlanta's first and foremost protector.
Connie Ronnin - wielder of the psychic sword. Dragon - the last of his race, able to assume the human guise of Mark Dagon. Kristin Austin - petite, but endowed with incredible strength. Together, they are the Southern Knights! It's a fairly short bit of text but it gives a new reader a surprising amount of information that will make following the story easier.
Just by reading it you learn the setting, Atlanta; the names of the main characters; and the aliases of the characters who have them. You also learn a bit about their powers.Small Business Saturday could have lasting impact for independent businesses.

Posted by: Ron | August 26, at AM Bryan and Mike, It is true that the Cubs out-draw the White Sox in attendance (by a long shot) every year. I agree it is not a good argument for the Cubs vs. Sox thing so let’s make a deal.
