This post is mainly for my wife, who loves Kim Krizan’s movies … Johanna Draper Carlson has an interview up with Krizan, who wrote the movies Before Sunset and Before Sunrise. She has a story in BOOM!’s upcoming Zombie Tales anthology:
How have you changed your style and/or process for comics?
It felt to me that in writing a comic my process became wild, fast, and sharp — while in a script or book I would be slow, laborious, and careful. The medium did seem to dictate another approach, and it was fun to write. Both film scripts and comic scripts are written for visual media, but I had to consider the importance of things like the turning of a page as an opportunity to add tension. I very easily and naturally put in violent imagery which was rather satisfying. Chip read it and said, “Wow, this gives me the creeps!” and said I was good with horror. Well, I don’t watch horror films. Driving in LA is enough horror for me.
