quetz explains the difference between a script and a comic book...

I'm sure it's fine as a script, but when writing for a visual medium, either in comics or on a stage, the author must allow the artist or the actor to portray emotions, expressions, and reactions as basic as these.

Otherwise it's like:

It was surprising: "Wow!" she exclaimed, looking surprised, "I am surprised!" EDITOR'S NOTE: SHE WAS SURPRISED.
