This is more a technical aspect, rather than criticism, but unless you are going to pencil the book yourself, that's not how you script a comic. You should outline what is going on in each panel, (eg more detail) then place the dialogue in the panel last, for example, here is a script page of Batman: The Return.

Quote:

Frame 1

Side shot. Batman hits the ground on his back, slamming his palms flat to absorb the impact (his wing backpack buckles) Traktir rushes towards him, like a bull, raising his fists over his head to pound Batman.

1 BATMAN: ROBIN!

Frame 2

Same POV Batman rolls back takes the monster in the gut with both feet, using his momentum to tip him overhead, into the tank.

2 BATMAN: I'M NOT YOUR

3 BATMAN: ENEMY!

4 TRAKTIR: HERE IN THE FINAL ARENA, ALL MEN ARE ENEMIES OF TRAKTIR!

Frame 3

Batman thrusts Traktir back

5 TRAKTIR: GLAUFF

Frame 4

Batman's boots and legs in foreground as Traktir clambers up again,fingernails crunching over the edge of the concrete tank as he hauls himself over the edge, snarling.

6 TRAKTIR: YOU WILL NEVER BREAK TRAKTIR!

7 TRAKTIR: TRAKTIR WILL NEVER FALL!

8 TRAKTIR: VAMPIRE MAN!

Frame 5

Looking to Traktir's shoulders as he stands up, looking down at Batman, unafraid aiming his guns at Batman's head. Batman, fearless, faces him down commandingly, drawing his attention to the woman... Behind Spidra sits up, touching her throat. Batman has medical taped the thick needle around her throat. Her eyes are wide as she reaches for Traktir off-panel.

9 BATMAN: TRAKTIR, WAIT.

10 BATMAN: HER THROAT WAS CRUSHED, BUT NOW SHE CAN BREATHE, SEE?

11 BATMAN: I SAVED HER LIFE, SPIDRA, WAS IT?

12 BATMAN: WHO DID THIS TO YOU BOTH?

Frame 6

Traktir points, fearful. Batman turns to look over his shoulder, past us, snarling, as he realises where Robin is.

13 TRAKTIR: THERE.

14 TRAKTIR: THAT CARCASS WAS HIS CRADLE.

15 TRAKTIR: THEY CALLED HIM "FATHERLESS"!
So even without adjusting any of your ideas, there is still a lot of work to do for the comic. Page 6 in particular needs editing, because, what you have described for the plane explosion would take some really short horizontal panels, which would then compromise the integrity of the art. Always remember to accommodate for the artist too.

You also should heavily proof-read/edit your work. Yes, this won't be in the comic itself, but in order for people (artists, potential employers, etc) to take your scripts seriously, you need to have your grammar and sentence structure as close to perfect as possible.

For example, your first sentence:

Quote:
Atop a dark rooftop, on a dark night, we see a small figure atop, with a smoking chimney.
is all over the place. "A small figure atop" is repetitive. We already know we're looking "atop a dark roof". Also, "small figure atop, with a smoking chimney" sounds like the figure is in possession of a smoking chimney, instead of standing next to/near one. It should read something like this:

Quote:
Atop a dark rooftop, on a dark night, we see a small figure standing next to a smoking chimney.
...or to help inspire the artist, you can get a little more creative/descriptive with it:

Quote:
On a dark night, atop a lonely building, a ghostly figure emerges from the smoke of a nearby chimney.

or

On a moonless night, high above the streets, a shadowy figure moves through smoke spilling from the chimneys of the [name of building/location].
Just an example. The better you can paint the picture (for at least establishing shots), the more interested (and inspired) the artists are going to be.

Good luck!

No, i understand that completely, and i would have written it in the "panel 1" rather tha "1" format, but i'm working on this between school and work, as well as illustrating it myself for the comic (which is now to be a webcomic), i've rewritten the script, and am nearly finished, but i'll take all advice, thanks guys.

I wouldn't post a full issue script yet quite. For now, make sure you have concrete character designs, that is going to be vitally important in the early stages. So try and post them, one of the advantages of pencilling yourself is that you can design to your hearts content.

So if you can, try and get a Shadowface character design up on here.

I will do that, and I've spent nearly all weekend revising, and switching, making it to where even i thought it was good, and i hate all my own work.
That's why i wanted reviews of the story, because i first came up with SHADOWFACE in 7th grade all those years ago, where he was a jet pack flying spandex superhero fighting evil terrorists.

I switched the setting to a little earlier in time, and erased all of the flashbacks.
most descriptions are more crisp and in detail, as i'm actually trying to hire an artist now (pm me if anyone's interested) and trying to make this script less for my enjoyment only.

the story is now an origin in chronological order about the birth of the hero (anyone interested in me posting the full plot for issues 1 and 2?) and his fight against his own nation.

If you're happy with a design, get it up man. I'd like to see it.

If the design is final, you should craft Shadowface's origin and the worldbuilding (eg the seceding of this nation, create the antagonist etc).

If you're starting to craft the story, first, know how long it will be (I'm assuming it might be around 120 pages, or 6 standard length issues). Plan every out the story as a whole, this gives you something you know you can work toward, then plan out your single issues. I wouldn't post the script, as sometimes, they can ruin the magic. Try and get some pages finished, and post them.

I'm not an aspiring writer myself and never will be, but I really like how Marvel after explaining the hard facts still kinda gives hope to ambitious aspiring writers in the second half of this quoute.


Edit:

S1u5, if you're illustrating yourself it would be cool to see some stuff. Maybe in the fan art forum?
