“Comics are a medium of infinite possibilities.”

Exploring those creative possibilities is what has led best-selling writer Fred Van Lente to work for brands like Marvel on titles including The Amazing Spider-Man, Iron Man Legacy, and Wolverine: First Class.

Begin the course by getting to know writer Fred Van Lente. Discover the creative career that led him from studying film to writing comics, graphic novels, and more, along with the influences that inspire him.

Dive into the terminology used in the comics industry. Then learn how to “think in pictures” by creating basic panel compositions for your story. Learn how to manage page layout and length before exploring dialogue and sound effects.

Time to write your story using the techniques you’ve learned so far. Come up with your comic book concept, then create the skeleton for your script, known in the industry as a “page by page breakdown”. Write the dialogue and design your characters before adding scene descriptions to finish your script.

Discover the script format developed by Fred to present your work in a professional way. Then hear how to assemble a team of fellow creatives to bring your comic to life. To finish the course, Fred talks through what to do once your comic is finished, from publishing your work online to attending Comic Cons.
