Comic Production Benefits

Comic Production encompasses various facets, from storytelling and
artwork to layout, lettering, and distribution. It’s essential to have a
strong narrative with engaging characters and a clear script that
guides the artists. The visual aspect relies on talented artists who
bring the story to life through sketches, inking, coloring, and panel
design. Effective lettering ensures text complements the art.

Pre-Production

Rights Acquisition

The comics rights acquisition agreement represents a key area of importance in the relationship and agreement entered into between Marano Comic World and the license owner.

Storyboarding/Plotting

Start by writing a script that outlines the dialogue, narration, and panel descriptions for each page of the comic. This script serves as the foundation for the visual storytelling.

Character/Setting Design

Sketch and refine the appearance of the characters. Pay attention to details such as clothing, hairstyle, and distinguishing features. Determine the key locations in the comic and create sketches or illustrations to bring them to life.

Production

Thumbnailing

Create small, quick, and rough thumbnail sketches for each page. These sketches should be simple and serve as a visual guide for the page’s composition and panel layout.

Line Drawing

Start by lightly sketching the basic shapes and outlines of the characters, objects, and backgrounds. Focus on achieving correct proportions and composition.

Inking

Once the initial sketches are complete, refine the drawings by adding finer details and lines. Use different pencil grades for shading and texture. Alternatively, use ink pens or digital tools for inking if you prefer a clean, crisp line style.

Colouring

Begin by applying flat base colors to each element in the panel, such as characters, objects, and backgrounds. Use solid colors without shading or highlights at this stage.

Background Drawing

Start with a rough sketch of the background, outlining the major elements, such as buildings, landscapes, or interiors, and add finer details to the background, including architectural features, textures, and objects. Use reference images or real-life observations to capture realistic elements.

Paneling

Choose the shapes and sizes of panels based on the content and pacing. Larger panels can emphasize important moments, while smaller ones can convey rapid action. Decide on the type of panel transitions that you want to use, such as moment-to-moment, action-to-action, subject-to-subject, or scene-to-scene, to best convey the story.

Effect Design

Identify the types of effects required, which can include actions like explosions, magic spells, weather, or even emotional expressions like sweat drops or speed lines. If including onomatopoeic sound effects (e.g., “BOOM”, “ZAP”), design these to visually match the style of the comic. Consider typography, size, and placement.

Post-Production

Art Finalization

Inspect each panel for consistency in line work, coloring, and visual elements. Ensure that the visual storytelling is clear and engaging.

Proofreading and Editing

Start by reviewing the entire comic, paying attention to both the visual elements and the text, including dialogue, captions, and sound effects. Check for grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and punctuation issues in the dialogue and captions. Correct any typos or language inconsistencies.

Lettering

Choose appropriate fonts for lettering styles and connect speech balloons to characters using balloon tails, which indicate who is speaking and direct the reader’s eye. Verify that the text complements the visuals and enhances the storytelling without overshadowing the artwork.

Formatting and Layout

Determine the dimensions of comic pages, considering the intended print size or digital format. Design a title page with the comic’s title, author/artist credits, and any additional information like publisher logos or copyright notices.

Exporting

Ensure that all comic pages, covers, and related assets are finalized and ready for export. Determine the appropriate resolution (e.g., DPI) and file format (e.g., PDF, TIFF, JPEG) based on the intended distribution platform (print, digital, web).

Launch and Promotion

Develop a comprehensive promotion plan that outlines goals, target audience, and promotional strategies. Set a specific release date for the comic, allowing ample time for preparation and promotion.
