Golden-Age Comic Book Scripts Wanted

(1/4) > >>

The Ghost Man:
Greetings all, just reaching out to the DCM community to see if anyone knows where I might find scripts the artists used during the Golden-Age for the artists to draw comics from. I've looked all over and so far haven't turned up anything. I'm hoping that a few exist and weren't just rubbished because they weren't considered of any value.To clarify I'm not a collector so I'm just seeking a few sources preferably online for now. However, if a physical version with good content came up, I wouldn't reject it out of hand. If there were any digitized that were used during the seminal Marvel reconstruction in the 60's they'd be cool as well.

I'm pulling this together for both research into my personal vintage comic reformation project as well as making it available to other like-minded content creators at my artists academy blogsite.

Hi GM,
I just recalled there is a script here on the site:

We just don't have the book that it goes with.

THANK YOU! You're a lifesaver Yoc, after taking another run at it today online and failing to find anything I just gave up. It's just so hard to believe these vintage scripts are so rare and ridiculously hard to find. There's a good number of new/modern ones out there but I don't want any of those. I'm constructing something brand new but harvested from the solid core and everything good from the Platinum and Golden-Age creatively that I can salvage.

I'm compelled to push this project forward and there's a ton of work ahead. It's like trying to eat an elephant and can't be done in one shot, it has to be done in stages. As much effort as I've poured into the The Vintage Inkwell Academy blogsite, it will have to take a backburner to future updates. It's getting hardly any response and I need to move forward and concentrate my energies towards constructing the infrastructure for this endeavour. All the while pursuing advanced art studies! I'm as busy as a one-legged man at an arse kicking contest and your gracious assistance has been well appreciated.

Yoc:
Hi GM,
Happy I could be of some help.  And you have my sympathies regarding the site.  DCM is a 'niche' site and the VIA is a niche of a niche.

There's some sites with pay records for GA writers.

And this blog talks a lot about writers as well:

It's not really what you want but I found it interesting.

If you are on Facebook you might try reaching out to Michael T. Gilbert who is also a fan of GA history.  Tell him 'Yoc sent you.'

Good luck with the site!

Thanks once again! Just made an overdue donation to the site in my gratitude for your help, and throw in my contribution to support the site. I would never have gotten as far if you guys didn't exist. People don't really know what they have until it's not there one day and I for one never, ever want to see that day. Keep at it guys, you've got one guy who your efforts made a personal impact on. I'll try and contribute again once when I can as finances permit.
