    Default CBR: Where The Hell Am I - Mar 23, 2011

    Jason dives into the mailbag this week to answer a question regarding storytelling decisions and how a writer can best craft a tale to the strengths of the artist or artists thay're working with on the project.

    This is actually a really cool insight.

    Yeah, this was super interesting. I always wonder how much to include in my descriptions for my scripts. It's nice to see it's not set in stone. I usually am pretty loose with what I want visually, just because that's not really my job. I'll have to talk to my artist about what he likes.
    As always, thanks for all the insights. Your column is invaluable.

    Great Stuff.

    I've read a number of scripts, ranging from those that tell exactly what the artist should do and from some dialogue with a vague idea of the action. Depends on the writer, depends on the artist. I can only imagine that one time the writer gives the artist complete freedom and receives something completely different than he/she intended.

    Jason,

    I just read the Scalped issue "Listening to the Earth Turn". A beautiful story that I'd like to show my appreciation for. There are few comics that capture a feeling of love for someone like that issue, thank you for writing it.

    Just thought I would pass that on.
