Writing 301: Formatting by FelipeCagno Writing 301: Formatting by FelipeCagno
A little quick about formatting your comic script. I do mention in there that there isn't really a standard since each publisher and writer have their own way so don't take this as the absolute standard, this template is what works for ME.

I suggest you read some comic scripts out there and note the differences between an Alan Moore script to a Geoff Johns and then figure out which works best for you.

Thanks for reading!

Also giving the script to the colourist is a good idea. I've only once had that done but it made colouring the panels so much easier as you had the context and story to help set mood, lighting, colour selections etc. beats having to guess and wing it all the time

I can't imagine the colorist working without the script, that's insane! I always make sure to send the script to everyone involved with the comic :)

Question: How many panels per page should there be? To limit the comic page?

An average of 5-6 panels per page is the ideal, more than that and you start limiting your artist unless you are going for a specific narrative function, such as several small panels with little details only like a door knob or the stamp in a letter.

Ok, so... 5 to 6 panels. Right?
