Series I: Project Files

Project Files contains scripts and other files related to Claremont's various writing projects, including comic books that Claremont scripted and files related to his non-comic book related projects such as his early short stories, some screenplays, and drafts of novels.


Subseries I.1: Comics Projects, 1979-2015

A typical comic project file may include Claremont's original, hand-written notes; correspondence with his editorial team or artist; copies of the book art at different stages of the production process; and typed scripts for the book. In addition to the scripts for the various books that Claremont worked on, there are proposals for books and series, some of which were eventually put into production, and some of which were not. These files are arranged alphabetically by project.
