Any good comic book scripts? By that I mean what the artist takes from the writer and interprets into the panels/pages? I'm surprised there are no books of side to side comparisons...

I wrote an article on sources for finding out about this and some script compilations: http://www.usatoday.com/story/popcandy/2012/11/28/comic-book/1732735/
In general I find the easiest thing to do is draw three horizontal lines on the page, creating three tiers, and split two of those tiers into two equally-sized panels. Bam -- five-panel page. And you can do some variety with it. It's a good "starter" for just figuring out how to pace a story and have a distinct visual element on each page.
