Why so serious?
Not sure if this is in the right forum. I have a question about submissions to comic book companies.
Okay, long story short, I’m trying to get into the comics industry as a writer with no previous “professional” written material. In particular, I have a one-shot script written up. I have a professional penciller collaborator I’ve been working with.
Now here’s the thing. The penciller has taken some artistic liberties with the script. I’m not complaining about that, that was fully expected and encouraged. My question now is in regards to submissions. Most companies want the script in addition to the sequential artwork. What do I do now that some portions of the script vary greatly from the artwork? I tried to leave things relatively open-ended in the panel descriptions, but do I alter the script to reflect the artwork now? Is it fully expected to have some portions of the script not really match up with the art anyway?
I'm sure it's expected that the script and final story will be different. Also, whoever reads it will have both versions in fron of them right? I wouldn't sweat it really.
