I’d like to take a moment to seek out some advice from comics artists who work with writers. I know there are at least a couple of you who read this blog regularly, and perhaps you can pass the question on to others.
So, artists, what do you like best? Do you prefer detailed descriptions of each panel on the page, telling you exactly what to draw and from what angle? Do you prefer just to be told what’s going on and what’s being said, with the rest left up to you? Something in between? I expect the answers to this have a lot to do with specific circumstances and your relationship with the writer, and I’d like to hear about that if you feel like talking. I’d also like to know what kind of scenario you’d prefer over all. What would be your ideal collaboration?
