DC Gives Behind The Panels Look At Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen
A new feature debuted over at the DC Comics’ website today that features Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen‘s writer Matt Fraction and artist Steve Lieber going over their collaborate creative process in creating their ambitious series.
If you’re unfamiliar with the 2019 series that DC calls a “new miniseries featuring death, destruction, giant turtles and more!”, this behind the scenes look would provide a good taste of what the fun series is like.
It’s also a fantastic resource for those who are aspiring comic writers, as comic scripts require a specific type of format.

As a writer myself, I love seeing images like this, and am happy that it was shared. Different creative outlets require different writing formats, and anyone who has never seen a comic script should study this presentation.
Hopefully DC keeps posting more of these from different series.
Catch up on the entire series here.
Comic fans should be familiar with both Matt Fraction and Steve Lieber. Fraction has won multiple Eisner awards, serving as a writer on critically acclaimed books like Hawkeye and Sex Criminals. Steve Lieber has a long history as an illustrator in the comic business, beginning with such titles as Conan, as well as his mini-series Whiteout, which was adapted into a 2009 feature film starring Kate Beckinsale.
