The Rules
 
Well, some rules anyway. 

I wrote this for another place,  but it does actually sum up some of what I feel are some basics for comic book storytelling.

 

1. Issues and series need to build towards the climaxes. I rarely intentional violate this.

 
 

2. Dramatic event should happen after a page turn. I'm not willing to pad to make this happen, so I break this rule reasonably often, but my hit rate for nailing it is pretty good. 

 
 

3. Every scene should have some kind of conflict. As in, the character want something, and can't get it without some difficulty, even if it's minor. The tricky is doing this subtly for some scenes. I'm pretty good at following this rule. 

 
 

4. Characters should be identifiable by HOW they talk. You shouldn't need to see it's Batman speaking to know it's not Superman. I never intentionally violate this, but I do fail at doing it some times.
