Seven Comic Book Scripts Volume Two


Comic book and superhero fans, rejoice! This volume includes seven scripts—a mix of superheroes, mobsters, horror, and humor—from a writer whose work has been published by DC Comics, among others. Robert Jeschonek has written plenty of scripts in his career, and these seven will shine a light on his writing process, his wild imagination…and some thrilling and thought-provoking adventures. The latest in a series collecting some of his best work, this action-packed book includes seven scripts:


"You're Listening to Alter Ego Talk Radio 1050": A radio call-in psychiatrist gets his kicks doling out advice to nutty superheroes...until he says the wrong thing to a head case with the ultimate power.


"The Cold Shoulder": How do you handle the world's mightiest Mafia enforcer gone rogue? Drive him to suicide, and hope he doesn't kill you first.


"Redneck Neighbor": What's worse? Having an obnoxious upstairs neighbor who's a vampire, or one who's a country music singer? Put them both together, and your life becomes a living hell.


"The Super Hitman's Secret Power": An F.B.I. agent who's about to lose everything seeks out the one man with the power to save him: his old enemy, the super hitman whose life he ruined years ago.


"Deadly Standoff": What happens when a superhero finds himself caught in a no-win situation? With a child's life at stake, can he still find the strength to make a difference?


"Hot Potato": An STD with a mind of its own seizes control of its host. Can the "Barnacles" be stopped before they drive a good man to commit an unspeakably horrific crime?


"Neil Ballantyne, Hellraker:  No Good Deed": A priest saves souls by summoning demons, proving the existence of Heaven and God by demonstrating the influence of Hell. But when his scheme goes horribly wrong, only Neil Ballantyne, the supernatural fixer, stands a chance of stopping a rash of atrocities.


Don't miss this collection of seven comic book scripts for one low price. It’s the latest book from Booklist critically acclaimed storyteller Robert Jeschonek (My Favorite Band Does Not Exist), a master of unique and unexpected fiction that really packs a punch.

Product Information
File Size:
4.3 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
