Cool, thanks for the info. I'll have to remember to check out the scrip in BWT next time I get to a comic shop. I'm in process of reading through the script for Avengers #500, and so far it really seems pretty similar to movie/TV script. The biggest difference would be the page and panel (?)numbers before the descriptions and scenes.
The main reason it looks similar is that Brian Bendis uses the screenwriting program Final Draft for his scripts.

Yeah, like Keith had said there isn't a standardized format for comic scripts. The only publisher I'm aware of that demands all their scripts in a certain format is Dark Horse Comics, and their format isn't so much with the similarities to TV/film scripts.
