Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp and to the point O'Neil does a great job of explaining what is important and how to focus things. This won't teach you how to write - but it's an amazing resource as a reference for various planning and organizational techniques (i.e. how to move through the steps starting with an idea and resulting in a finished script). A must read for anyone interested in starting out or refining their comic writing toolbox.
