    The art of comic book writing: the definitive guide to outlining, scripting, and pitching your sequential art stories

    Kneece, Mark

    Master the in-depth secrets of scripting comics! These days, comic books are everywhere--on TV, in the movies, online, and in your hands. Each comics story begins with an idea, and more often than not, comic book writers are the ones to first translate those ideas into exciting sequential art. With "The Art of Comic Book Writing" from Mark Kneece and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), you have access to your very own guided tour through the role of a comics scripter. From crafting an effective outline to properly formatting your script to composing a winning synopsis when pitching your comic to publishers, no stage of the process is left untouched. Along the way, Kneece provides commentary on real-world examples of outlines, scripts, and synopses from SCAD faculty, alumni, and staff, showing what does and doesn't work, and ensuring that you have the most comprehensive look at comics writing ever presented.

    The giver

    Lowry, Lois.

    Life in the community where Jonas lives is idyllic. Designated birthmothers produce newchildren, who are assigned to appropriate family units: one male, one female, to each. Citizens are assigned their partners and their jobs. No one thinks to ask questions. Everyone obeys. The community is a precisely choreographed world without conflict, inequality, divorce, unemployment, injustice...or choice. Everyone is the same. Except Jonas. At the Ceremony of Twelve, the community's twelve-year-olds eagerly accept their predetermined Life Assignments. But Jonas is chosen for something special. He begins instruction in his life's work witha mysterious old man known only as the Giver. Gradually Jonas learns that power lies in feelings. But when his own power is put to the test--when he must try to save someone he loves--he may not be ready. Is it too soon? Or too late?.

    Leonardo's legacy: how Da Vinci reimagined the world

    Klein, Stefan

    Revered today as perhaps the greatest Renaissance painters, Leonardo da Vinci was a scientist at heart. The artist who created the Mona Lisa also designed functioning robots and digital computers, constructed flying machines, and built the first heart valve. His intuitive, ingenious approach--a new mode of thinking--linked highly diverse areas of inquiry in startling new ways, ushering in a new era.
