Hey kids! Here's a little discussion for my writers and comic fans out there:

I'm sitting in my creative writing class right now and we're in the middle of our section on script writing. Now, we're discussing dialogue and how you should use it sparingly. This is obvious, since in movies actions speak louder than words.
However, I'm thinking about comic scripts now and wondering: Should you fight to use as little dialogue as possible the same way you do for screenplays? Or should a writer take advantage of the symbiotic relationship that exists between words and images in comics? Do people prefer to read a comic as a combination of images and literature, or do they prefer to see the actions play out like a movie?

Basically: When you read a comic, are you put off by a lot of dialogue? Not long blocks of text, that's obviously bad form, but just text in general. How do you like for authors to handle text within their images? If you write your own comics, how do YOU handle it?

I'd usually look to my medley of Scott McCloud books to answer this question but while he spends quite a while discussing how word and image work together, he doesn't really talk much on picking dialogue itself. HM.
Or maybe I just need to reread Making Comics when I get home.

ANYWAY. I'd really appreciate any opinions you could share with me on the topic~
Thanks guys!
