Comics Plotting Tools

Here's a nice overview of how a writer breaks down a comic: Comix Tribe's Comic Plotting Tools.

This isn't too dissimilar from what I do, except, as writer/artist, I think it's important to be drawing from the earliest stages. So, f'rinstance, I use index cards, too, but they're for thumbnails more than sentences. Comics are a visual medium, and if you're a visual person, you develop them visually, right?
