ComicStoryworld Extra: Script Guide

ComicStoryworld Extra: Script Guide

Published by Tyler Weaver
"ComicStoryworld Extra: Script Guide" is a digital supplement to my book, "Comics for Film, Games, and Animation: Using Comics to Construct Your Transmedia Storyworld." It is a short guide for screenwriters, game designers, and animators who are taking their first crack at creating comics.

Inside, creatives will find notes, a format guide, and a real-world example, my own "Whiz!Bam!Pow!" project.

Questions and comments may be sent via Twitter @tylerweaver or via my Tumblr, Penny a Word at tylerweaver.tumblr.com.
