Are you ready for something strange? Come participate in the Comixpedia Hallowe'en
We want you to create a 13-panel scary story
starting from a random panel we assign. It's a fear-fraught
opportunity to work with some of the most twisted minds in webcomics.
Seven different panels to start from, one of which will be yours. And from there,
the grave's the limit.
Horror. Humour. All in between... we're looking for you to make our first event
a spooktacular success. (Click read more to see one of the "starter panels")

A good column over at Comic Book Resources from Steven Grant.
Assuming you've mastered basic skills of grammar, punctuation and style, and you've researched the functions of dialogue, plotting and story (you don't need to study comics specifically for this, and it's perhaps better if you don't; most libraries have sections on writing for theater, TV, etc., and you can learn a lot from reading those books as well as plays, screenplays, etc.), there are a few ways in.
