A living legend in the comics industry, author Dennis O'Neil reveals the inside tricks and no-fail techniques for comic book storytelling.

Review:

"O'Neil...offers much good sense and valuable information about his craft....[A]bove all, O'Neil addresses the universals of writing in a way that makes the book useful to all aspiring scripters, regardless of their knowledge of comics." Roland Green, Booklist

Review:

"[A] witty, clear, and concise guide....[O'Neil] provides excellent advice and guidance for beginners....This is a nice balance to the many how-to-draw-comics books in most collections. Even for nonwriters, the book is interesting for the background look it provides into how comics are created." School Library Journal
