This is question about the art and craft of making comics.
I'm starting to do a couple of pages in a 3x3 grid panel.
It looks like I'll have room for one speech bubble and a pic per panel.
Any of you have done work in 3x3 grid layouts? What did you learn? What worked? What didn't?
Action-heavy stories work well with the size of panels in the 6-panel grid, whereas denser, more dialogue-heavy stories are more at home in the 9-panel grid.
Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons used a simple 3x3 panel layout throughout their classic Watchmen. Oftentimes multiple panels were combined, or occasionally a panel was subdivided, but only three pages break from that basic grid.
