Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
Anonymous said: Tom, how does the perfect script for a comic book look like? What is needed? Page and panel numbers? Is a detailed explanation of the scene on panel appreciated, or rather unnecessary due to too much text? Is the dialogue written in uppercase letters? Does that even matter?
Every script is different. There isn’t one single universally-used perfect format.
There are examples of scripts that can be found online around the web.
Also, a good resource for this sort of question is Brian’s book WORDS FOR PICTURES, which came out a month or two back. There are a few examples in there, plus a whole lot more valuable information.

i’ll talk more about it in detail later, but basically i’m going into a dialogue about a very underdiagnosed and unknown seizure called Complex Partial Status Epilepticus (which i’ve had episodes of before). as always, if you have any questions or thoughts about epilepsy, please feel free to message me ✩ happy reading! ✩✩
Let the characters surprise you. Let them take you somewhere you’re not prepared to go. Even if it means tearing up tracks — who cares? Let the characters make you cry or laugh, or let them scare you."
