Panels 1-4: Behold the majesty of the tall, skinny vertical panel in action! A personal favorite panel shape, gotta say. (Check out Satoru Noda’s fine manga Golden Kamuy for a master class in the advanced use of the vertical panel.)

Panel 5: Here’s the handy Wee Insert Close-Up, a space-saving li’l panel type that’s a fun way to work in a character reaction without burning up much page space.

Panel 6: And here’s Ol’ Reliable, the perpetually useful panoramic horizontal panel. Great not just for establishing long shots and directional action scenes, but also for talking-head dialogue shots like this one. Dandy, I tell you!
