Far below the wretched hole of a Subterranean cesspit,
twelve out of a fortunate forty remain unchanged.

After numerous uncharted months of secluded depravity.
A grueling struggle of a seasonal dread hangs heavily over
the survivors untouched and still fed.

Agony trumps anxiety as a skeleton crew faces
another catastrophic escape attempt of silent Sarah.

Suitor Recruiter

To die for.

You mean HER!!
Our orders are SIMPLE!
guard the door
Are you SERIOUS?
After what she's done!!
That THINGS damn lucky
I don't blow her.. sniff, SNIFF.
Smoke?..How did she get cigareAHHHH!!!

The wailing pitch of a child's fit invades every
corridor, disturbing everyone in earshot who fortunately inhabit a prestiegous facility of fortified mold.

Page 2

A feverish blood bath of
crazed chaos commences challenging the confines of
what's conceivable.

Hell bound and dominantly
It jockeys once more combating
a yearning profound.

impatience pays dividends
as it sinks deeper than dirt.
Selflessly Sharing its venom
in spoiled delight.
Sparing the left hand as it feeds hearty on the right.

Page 3

Simian savagery swiftly ceases as fast
it started.
Frantic and
desperate look above for love or lunch.

Eagerly starving to serve two masters, dire panic strikes
the unrequited.

Hey! Anyone want to ask the obvious questions so that I don't look like a total jerk?

Anyone? I mean, I don't mind looking like a total jerk, but I thought I'd give someone else a chance to comment first.

Uh...what the hell is going on here? There's just too much too say that I'm just going to refer you to some reading.

First, read a script so you know what one should look like. For a first project, I recommend the full script style. Here (http://comicbookscriptarchive.com/goods/alanmoore/Youngblood-2-script.pdf) is a script from Alan Moore. You don't have to read the whole thing, but you should read enough to get a gist of how a script should look like.

After that, and before writing your actual script, I suggest reading the Bolts & Nuts (http://www.comixtribe.com/columns/bolts-nuts/pouch-of-nuts/) articles on http://www.comixtribe.com. You should probably pick up a copy of The DC Comics Guide to Writing Comics (http://www.amazon.com/The-DC-Comics-Guide-Writing/dp/0823010279) too.

Is this supposed to be a comic book script? It reads like poetry.

Dude, the only time you ever post is to draw eyes to your work. But your work isn't ready for people to look at.

Yeah, there's nothing good here. Lots of learning needs to happen first.

Mr. Forbes always beats me to it. This may help the original poster:


It's a guide to comics script format. Anyone reading this can have it.

It's always a good thing to see you around here, Kurt. You should come 'round more often.
