WRITE NOW! #13, the magazine about comics and animation writing, brings
you a special issue focusing on adaptations: what happens when comics go
to film, or film to prose, or Japanese manga to English translation!
Behind an ALL-NEW Ron Lim/Al Milgrom cover, Simon Kinberg (movie
screenwriter of X-Men 3: The Last Stand and Fantastic Four, as well as
Mr. And Mrs. Smith and XXX: State of the Union) is interviewed, telling
how he puts pop-culture icons like Marvel’s mutants on the silver
screen! Dennis O’Neil tells how he took the screenplay from the
blockbuster Batman Begins movie and translated it into his top-selling
prose novel! Central Park Media’s Stephen Pakula discusses how manga are
adapted from Japanese into English. Platinum Studios’ Lee Nordling
outlines adapting comics into film. Plus: Kurt Busiek on breaking into
comics as a writer. The legendary Mike Friedrich talks about the role
(or lack thereof) of writers’ agents in the comics business. Novelist
Bill McCay reveals how to do research so your story has the ring of
truth! Comedian/comics writer/novelist Marc Bilgrey on how And Don’t
Forget to Rescue the Princess—his new comedy-fantasy novel—came to be.
And, of course, there’ll be lots of nifty Nuts and Bolts script samples
to help you make your writing the best it can be!
