Learn your craft using professional comic book scripts

You know how aspiring painters set up easels in the museum and recreate works of the masters? Well, they have the equivalent for aspiring comics!

One of the best resources around — for both writers and artists — is the Scripts Archive compiled by Comics Experience. You can download the actual comic book scripts written by Kelly Sue Deconnick, Neil Gaiman, Kurt Busiek, and dozens of others.

What is there to learn? Here are a few ideas.


  • Script formatting
  • Effective panel descriptions
  • Compelling dialogue
  • Pacing


  • Analyze a script drawn by one of you favorites
  • Browse scripts, draw a sequence from one, and then compare it to the printed interpretation
