Certes, cet ouvrage est une véritable méthode, pleine de bons conseils, mais c'est aussi un passionnant témoignage de Stan Lee sur son expérience professionnelle personnelle. À conseiller donc aux apprentis scénaristes, ainsi qu'aux admirateurs du grand Stan Lee.

A good book, but not the best 25 octobre 2011
Par Tim Lasiuta - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The mystique of Stan Lee continues. From Watson Guptil, Stan wrote about drawing comics, and now he gives us "How To Write Comics". Speaking truthfully, this book is better than the previous volume, as Stan has been a writer first and foremost, but it could be better.

Stan covers the full gamut of topics.
The Tools
The Basics
Script Types
Creating the Characters
Preparing the Script
The Finished Script
What editors Want
About the Author

Stan and his 'team' of interviewees cover nearly every topic that writers are involved in. This overview of the process is valuable, but at times it seems rushed and incomplete. Stan writes about continuity, but this tome lacks it at times. This is an intangible, but it is not there. I appreciated the other viewpoints but feel the best section is when the Editors speak about what they want from stories and writers.

In terms of artwork that graces these pages, the variety suffers. The artwork does indeed focus on Dynamite too much of the time. Vampirela, the Lone Ranger, Project Superpowers, the Black Terror, Green Hornet, Sherlock Holmes and the new Alice in Wonderland are TOO prevalent. Few examples from Stan's best work is included. If I were to guess, there was either copyright issues, or Stan did not pick our much of the art.

Either way, this is almost a take it or leave it kinda book. I expected more from the 'man who knows it all!'

Denny O'Neil's book was far better.

More of a ''How it's Done'' Book Than a ''How to'' Manual 29 mai 2012
Par goldenrulecomics - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The title of this book is a bit of misnomer, because it's not really a straight how-to manual. Instead, it's a wide-ranging discussion, led by Lee, of how he and various other writers and artists (including Len Wein, Marv Wolfman, Roy Thomas, Jerry Ordway and many others) have created comic books over the years. If you approach the book from that angle it's a really wonderful insight to how the industry works.

Lee gives his opinions on such aspects as pacing, splash panels, continuity etc., injecting many anecdotes from his long, long career. He also culls interviews from many veterans of the industry about how they approach their work as well.

In one of the more interesting debates, Lee and the others discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the Marvel method of writing, where the writer gives the artist a summary of the story and the artist works off that instead of a full detailed script. Lee said he was able to do that because he was working with veterans like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, whom he knew he could trust. Some modern writers including Neil Gaiman say they are much more hesitant to do that.

There's lots of comic-book tidbits and stories about how comics are created, enough that those alone would be worth the price of the book. I knocked off one star from the rating because so much of the artwork is focused on Dynamite Comics and adds little to the discussion. The book would have been much stronger if more relevant artwork was included. For instance, there's an anecdote about some Dr. Doom panel's from the Fantastic Four annual that featured the wedding of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl. But those panels aren't shown.

I would say anybody interested in comic books should get this book. It's a fun and interesting read.

A book only a Marvel fan could love! 4 novembre 2011
Par Merlin63 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Stan Lee's How to write comics is a fair to middling book at best. If your seeking a creative writing book that inspires and gives you practical techniques and exercises, there are far better books out there. Any decent script writing book, will cover most of the basics. Comics being a unique medium with different strengths and weaknesses to film, has of necessity, it's own story telling techniques, and here, to his credit, Stan Lee pretty much covers them all. But honestly, you can learn all that with one Will Eisner and one Scott McCloud book. In far greater detail.

But the book has charm, and is not without merit. It's chock full of interviews from working professionals; mostly quotes really, culled from other sources and used to illustrate various points throughout the book. Some sources are wrangled specifically for the book (Roy Thomas, Marv Wolfman, Len Wein and the last two chapters, where he interviews current editors about what they look for in a script and what they want from their writers). It's also full of personal anecdotes from his days of writing comics, which stretches from the 40's to the 70's and gives a good overview of the history of comics, and how the medium has changed. That's the fun part. The "he was there for most of it" part. The man has seen, and even helped develop many of the working methods (writing the plot driven outline and scripting later) and techniques used in comics today. What he didn't have a hand in directly, he was at least in the near periphery to observe. And, to be honest, there is a strong and even pleasant "geek factor" as he goes down memory lane that makes the experience of reading the book a pleasure, even while hoping for something more substantive in its analysis of various techniques for story telling.

There's not a lot of books out there, though, which are geared specifically to the comics writer. I haven't read the Denny O'Neil or Peter David books, but I'd say, in terms of providing a check list at least, of things to keep in mind as your writing your story, it does deserve a place on your writing bookshelf.

It's chock full of a lot of art reproductions, some from the Marvel era of the 60's, most (it's true) from current DYNAMITE titles (which are currently reprinting the 70's Warren publishing titles like Eerie, Creepy, and Vampirella - so that's kind of cool) but that doesn't bother me, so long as it serves to illustrate the point (which it does). It also references titles as contemporary as a mere few months ago and interviews its subsequent creators, such as Brian Michael Bendis among others. So it's a very contemporary book as well.

So, to sum up: the book has a light, breezy, almost conversational tone, that covers techniques and working methods utilized from the earliest days of comics history, and then amended, developed, or simply added to, in its' current, more adult incarnation. But for a book that purports to be a guide on "How To Write Comics", it's a little too light on substance, and you might be better served starting with Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics. The Marvel fan will love it, though.

Disappointingly barely written by Stan Lee 9 novembre 2013
Par Richard Gagnon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book was barely written by Stan Lee. The primary author is Bob Greenberger--whose name is only briefly is listed as a co-author in the fine print on the publishing info page. The reason Stan Lee is listed as the author is because it is a lot easier to sell a book on writing comics with Stan's name on it than Bob's. Bob did the interviews with other writers and comics professionals and dug up quotes from past interviews. It's hard to say exactly how much Stan wrote, but his role as writer appears to mostly be as a kibitzer, adding info and anecdotes here and there and distilling some of his wisdom in scattered sections throughout the book.

The real issue with the book is that it is not a great book on how to write comics. Without the copious illustrations in the book, most of which have little to do with Stan Lee's works, this is more a pamphlet than a book. Since this is a book published by the comic book company, Dynamite, the bulk of the illustrations come from them and weren't authored by Stan. The book is padded out with a history of comics and a look at the different genres of comics (superheroes, scifi, etc.) such that the topic of writing comics doesn't really start till page 78. More than a third of the book barely touches on the subject of the book. It's hard to take any book on creative writing seriously when it spends so much time avoiding the subject. Books on writing fiction don't waste a third of their space talking about the history of fiction and the different genres.

For the most part, writing comics is not a specialized field of writing fiction. There are some unique aspects to writing comics, but telling stories is no different between comics and books and film. The structure of telling stories is the same in all mediums. A book on writing fiction will be more informative than this one.

This book doesn't even work well on discussing the special dynamics for writing in the comics medium. While the general structure of any story is common amongst all forms of fiction, there are some differences in the different mediums. Comic books are a combination of words and pictures that sort of represent a point in-between books and movies. At their best, comics exploit the specialized structure of combining words and images such that the two are intertwined in a way that doesn't happen with either novels or cinema. This book touches on some of the aspects of how comics differ from other forms of storytelling, but there is no depth to it.

The illustrations In the book barely relate to the subject of writing comics. None are tailored to illustrating how to write comics. They're mostly completed pages and covers and a few completed penciled or inked pages. There is little in the way of illustrations created specifically to highlight the right and wrong ways to tell a story in the comic book medium. The book doesn't delve to any extent on how to break up a page for pacing a story, how panel sizes can alter the reader's perception of time, or any of the details that are unique to the comic book format. Even a topic as simple as placement of dialog and caption balloons is done entirely in text without any illustrations showing how to properly place them. There aren't any illustrations showing mistakes in comic writing with accompanying illustrations on how to fix them. That is where this book largely fails.

This is at best an okay book that provides a superficial examination of how to write comics. It hits all the areas of the subject lightly without going into enough depth to be considered comprehensive. The book's primary author, Bob Greenberger, has only written a handful or so of published comics. I haven't read other books on the subject, so cannot provide any absolute advice on where else to go for information on the subject. There are at least two books written by comics professionals that should provide better information on how to write them:
Writing Comics Graphic Novels Peter
Alan Moore Writing Comics Volume
The Alan Moore book is a slim 48 page book written by one of the masters of the craft of writing comics.

Another book, that isn't about writing comics, is of interest: Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics. This is a heady examination of the comic book format told in a comic book style. The purpose of the book is to help define and understand what is unique to storytelling in a comic book format.
Understanding Comics Invisible Scott McCloud
Sean Howe's book, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, is a worthwhile read to get a better feel for how the industry is a business and the creators working on the comics are freelancers whose contributions are often minimally compensated. The best known comic heroes are owned by corporations and not by the writers and artists that created them. Corporations have gotten rich instead of the creators.
