One would think that if someone would be perfect to write this book it would be Dennis O'Neil. He is, after all, one of the medium's most experienced writers. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to be able to do much with the little space he has, other than fill it with (lots of) definitions. Don't get me wrong, though. The book is not bad by any means. The problem is it's too much of an introduction to comics writing. If you've read other books on the subject, you already know most of what the book covers, namely, the above mentioned definitions. That said, some of it is original enough, especially the sections on the Levitz Paradigm (the aspiring comic book writer will find this very useful), and the mega-series, something O'Neil has had plenty of experience with, as he was one of the minds behind Batman's "No Man's Land" and "Knightfall" sagas. All in all, a good read, but not a very informative one.

Given the increasing reliance of Hollywood on graphic novels and comics for inspiration in producing action movies this book is a must buy for frustrated script writers and students of the genre alike.

Fantastic & interesting read. Illustrations are amazing and inspiring. Worth looking at if you are interesting to make your own comic books. This book has plenty of great hints/tips on all aspects of creating a comic and story. Great value - Worth reading this book.

If you're reading this review, you must at least be interesting in writing comics, or even just comics in general. And this book won't disappoint. It covers everything you might need, with real-life examples (including of formatting). Also has an introduction by Stan Lee, which is always a good thing!

I found that it complements the other books in this series very well.
