Panel Discussion season 2, episode 2 SOMETHING IN THE GUTTER
This comic strip was created to help teach about the conventions of comic book layouts and story telling.
The little gaps between the panels of a comic book are very special, they’re called the ‘gutters’ and they represent the time between the moments that are pictured. Panels and gutters allow comics to depict the passage of time, something you can’t do with normal illustration that can only capture frozen moments.
