Ah yes! Gutter talk. I like to read about comics. My favorite book by far is ‘Understanding Comics’ by Scott McCloud. The author has some excellent observations about comics and also about time and space and… gutters.

Yesterday I came across an old post from 2005 on Penny Arcade about do’s and don’ts in webcomics. The author takes a very traditional approach to comic strips and mentions that every comic should have gutters (vital trait #1).

I’m not sure a single line counts as a gutter, but I don’t agree that every comic strip needs an empty space between the panels. But then again – the article is ten years old.
