“You need better dialog.”
“Yes, dialog. Aren’t you even paying attention? I said it. Dialog.”
We get a listener question about writing dialog, and the best way to achieve. Like many different writers, both Andy and Josh approach it differently, as there is no one way to get it right, but we go over enough ways that you should be able to come away with something helpful. It probably needs a polish.
Andy Schmidt is the founder of the online comic book school Comics Experience, as well as a former editor at Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing. Josh Flanagan has been working on iFanboy.com, talking, reviewing, and thinking about comics for over a decade, as well as writing and creating some of his own.
If you’re interested in going further, you can check out Comics Experience, where there are plenty of classes available in all the disciplines of comic book creation from writing to drawing to coloring to lettering.
