Once upon a time, there was the barest whiff of a chance that I might be able to write a comic that took place in Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity universe. (That whiff blew away when it was announced that Whedon wanted to keep it in the family, and his brother would do the job.)
But I was told to write a five-page sample script to show that I had a handle on the characters. Since it went nowhere, I figure I’d pop this up here as something of a resource. Comic scripts aren’t as impossible to find as they used to be, but they all look incredibly different — this is simply the way I write them. It looks a lot like a screenplay because that’s how my mind is used to ingesting meant-to-be-visual writing.
But I had more fun writing these five pages than, well, a decent chunk of some of my more recent comics work.
