Turning an Idea into a Comic

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Jan. 23, 2015

I was sitting in a boring Canadian politics lecture the other day (I'm not sure what else I expected from that class, really…) when inspiration struck - a comic idea! Unfortunately it's the first good idea I've had since approximately 2008, and I'm a few years removed now from any creative writing lessons I got in school. I've got no real idea of how to transform my brain waves into a full comic!

What are the first steps for you when you're starting fresh, especially in terms of the writing? Do you start with characters? Setting? Conflict? Do you know the end right away, or do you work your way from start to finish?

I'm interested to know everyone's processes - hopefully I can take in some ideas from you guys and get my own project jumpstarted!

The 2015 Radio Play still needs more judges for scripts!

I use the Banes Method, as detailed in a Quackcast long ago. The Banes Method. It clears clogs. Cleans ideas. Makes ideas shines. Seriously. Go Banes.

Do you have enough of an idea that you can put together an elevator pitch or the one paragraph synopsis? If you can do either you got a good beginning to hang the other things on. Cause you can always refine the setting, conflict, characters, and the stuff in-between the beginning and the end.
