Mike Carey talks Virgin & MySpace's Coalition Comix
Comics fans love to tell the pros how it should be done, so Virgin and MySpace gave them a chance to do just that. CBR spoke with Mike Carey about the resulting Coalition Comix project, “Queen’s Rook,” now available online.
Because you’d have to go back all the way to the 1950s, I think, to the EC comics, to find a comic that’s based on an absolutely regular grid. No, there’s a more recent example, of course, in ‘Watchmen’.
Really Mike? There's nothing more recent than Watchmen? It has been over a year, but I am pretty sure that the early issues of Fell used a regular grid. That was the purpose of Image's Slimline format: to fit as must story as possible into a slender volume. I can't remember, but I believe the grid was either 3x3 or 4x4. Either way, that's a lot of friggin boxes.
Of course, M.C. probably gave his answer on the spot and didn't exact have much time to do research into regular grid use during the 21st century.
