Seen a few writers posting scripts online. Growing up, I barely ever got to see what a comic book script looked like (think Wizard printed a few examples a few times?). But if I was just starting out as a writer, I’d want to read as many different comic scripts as possible.

So here’s the script for COW BOY: A BOY AND HIS HORSE Chapter One. It’s exactly what was given to Chris Eliopoulos to draw/color/letter, minus a few dirty jokes (though I left most curse words in the panel descriptions, so be careful if you wanna read it with your teenier kids).

Please note: The way I script is NOT “correct.” Because there is no “correct” way to format a comic script. The way I wrote this in 2010 is a bit different from how I write in 2012. You can evolve/change the way you write. Read a buncha scripts and figure it out for yourself.

(incidentally, this script’s format is a hybrid of the script formats of Roger Langridge, Jeff Parker, Paul Tobin and Fred Van Lente. I edited those guys a lot, and their scripts tended to be the easiest to read.)

If you want, go here to check out the fully-drawn first chapter for free, t’see how Chris brought everything to life.
