In this sequence I will show you how a script becomes a comic page using my first ever comic script "False Dawn" (which I will be pitching to IMAGE Comics this coming April).
"False Dawn" is a modern day political thriller. (Think "Se7en" meets "National Treasure".)
I wrote the script:
"False Dawn" Issue 01 By Kelly Bender Page 01
This is the Republican presidential candidates celebration party hall, we see ticker tape falling, lots of people cheering and 2 people (a husband and a wife) on a stage they are holding hands and all their hands are raised in victory. He has just won the Presidential election. He is 56+ male with a clean cut haircut, with a little bit of grey on the sides. He has a Jay Leno Chin, and is broad shouldered . She is an attractive looking 50 year old woman with a business suit and long dark hair.

My Illustrator the Brilliant Ken Perry does a sample drawing (so that he can show me we are on the same page and what HIS vision of the events are.)
I approve and he starts adding more detail and inking.
Ken Perry adds even more detail and more inking.
The amazing Josh Jensen will add life to this drawing through his amazing colors.
The magnificant Nic Shaw will add my written words to the page.
I will have a complete comic page ready for pitching.
Once I get 8 pages and a cover I will start the pitching process.
