So apparently Revolver wants us to have a TV script-like format. This means starting every new scene with "EXT." or "INT." (exterior or interior) "<SETTING>" "<TIME>". Character's names are in all caps, with their actions in parentheses and then the dialogue below. All effect are done as "SFX. <EFFECT>."
~~~
Examples:
♦EXT. CITY SCAPE - EARLY MORNING

♦SFX. GRENADE EXPLOSION

♦ MARCUS
(pacing)
Why was he the one who had to go? I'm here and willing to fight!
~~~
If that is too confusing of an explanation, more information is here.

Also, the last time I checked, Adobe Story is free on the Adobe site. It will help a lot with automatically formatting.

I can't really see a story being written and having an impact in that style.
Sorry.

I'm going to write this how I'd write a novel. It should be pretty easy to tell what's going on in the scene.

This is going to be a comic book, not a novel.

I'm aware of that.

Writing a comic script does not enhance my ability to write which is the only thing I want from this project.

I'm going to keep writing as I am, if I need to add more I will after.

I was just thinking about this, thanks for clearing it up Buob.

I may go with Buob's style for this, not quite sure.
