But the writing of the script, in most cases, is much quicker than the drawing of the page. That's what that example was meant to illustrate.
If you mean a full page process, from pencils to inks and letters, then I won't argue, depending on the level of detail. (Webcomics, for example, might take two or three hours, you know, there's a lot of the really famous ones even who don't put much effort into it.) But by the time I've broken down a full outline, carefully laid out sequences, ensured that every page has a "cliffhanger" moment and actually scripted the damn thing, each written page takes me approximately 5-10 hours. Not taking anything away from the artist but it's not like writers just poop something out in half an hour and play golf for eight hours a day.
