thedharmabeat asked: Would a script work for a graphic novel, whitout adapting the format?
Though there are similarities they are Two different storytelling languages so I think without proper adaptation you would be missing out on some essential and maybe important elements of the medium
senor-jenkins asked: Hey Brian! I just got Words for Pictures today and love it to bits! However, I pre-ordered it and went through the process to get a signed copy. But mine wasn't signed? I ordered it through Amazon but put in the order # through snapapp :( Did I get a wrong copy or am I missing something??
I will look into this but it was my understanding that it wasn’t a guarantee that you get a signed copy just a chance. I signed hundreds and hundreds of book plates so somebody got something.
but I will follow up here if I find something went awry
Anonymous asked: Brian, although these days you're known as an accomplished writer, you also have illustrated books in the past. If you could either be considered the greatest writer to ever live, or the greatest illustrator, which would you choose? I'd go with greatest dad, but that's because I'm precious.
then I am precious as well
bethemedia asked: Mr. Bendis, I am in complete and utter gratitude to you. This book ("Words for Pictures") is the most inspiring, blunt, useful, and informative piece of "How To" for writing I have ever come across. I have never been more exhilarated or amped to get started. My artist & I immediately sat down, after reading through your book cover-to-cover. She & I agreed to a series of minis as pre-cursors to our overall story. Even if they never see the light of day they will help us establish a rapport. Thnx
You made my day.
I wish you and everyone else who has written similar thoughts the best of luck. go make something that wasn’t there before.
