Slush Factory Presents: Comic Writing 101

Keith Giles’ latest SF column on writing for comics covers the very important issue of research.

Research is what separates good writing from great writing. It’s what makes your writing stand above the crowd and it lends your writing a degree of credibility that “un-researched” writing lacks. It doesn’t matter how cool your concept, if you don’t have good research to inject the story with a degree of believability, then you’re sunk.
