Thank you so much for posting this fascinating document. I work in comics and I think this is still helpful today.
I had two copies of this. The first one I received by subscribing to Ghostly Tales. I lost it a couple of years later. A few years after losing it, I sent a letter to the Charlton offices on a whim and was suprised when I received the second one, accompanied with a note that it was the one of last one's in stock and to not have my friend's mailing in and asking for one. It was signed by George Wildman, the editor of Charlton Comics. I was amused by that and kept the letter and the guide until I lost them both years later.That guide is, as simple as it is, very good and to the point. The script format is one of the best I've ever seen. I'm always happy to see it online. Now if I can get my hands on an actual copy, which I won't lose...promise:) .
Tom Sutton and Nicola Cuti did this mostly I believe.... Thanks for posting.. I have a pretty big Charlton collection but this is hard to find.....
I've looked and looked for the best format for a comic book. I don't intend on becoming a writer, but it's kind of a hobby. I liked how you showed how to format things to invoke certain feelings and effects in the story. Very cool.Gerald Vonberger | http://mariposapublishingllc.com/mariposa-comic-book/
