Publisher's Synopsis

Do you think that there's only one way to read a comic story? Think again when nine of the comic's industry finest talents come together in "THE WRITER'S BLOCK, Writing Comics For Love And Money!" In this 128 page trade collection comic's greats Mike Baron, Peter David, Jo Duffy, Fabian Nicieza, Gail Simone, Jim Shooter, Roger Stern and Mark Waid are given the same chapter of continuity to script without knowing anything about the plot or being allowed to speak to one another. The authors let their muses take them (and you) on a unique comics reading experience unlike any you're likely to find. Each chapter is accompanied by an interview with the author to discuss how they approached this exercise in comics writing in particular and writing in general. This softcover collects the first two WRITER'S BLOCK, plus a brand-new issue with extras such as: original scripts, production notes/balloon placements and the never-before-printed original script to the chapter for the first WRITER'S BLOCK. Unlike "how to" books that talk about how to write comics The Writer's Block shows how comics are written by masters of the artform.
