Re: Comic Art Question

Hi Nate,

11"x17" inch is the current paper size.
(It was different before.)

Check out this link to purchase comic book
drawing paper with preprinted art borders.
I'd suggest purchasing only their most
expensive comic book drawing paper (the
"pro" paper) or better.  The regular "comic
book page" paper wasn't very good -- too
thin, and slick enough.


See you.

OK, This is non GROO, but Comic related....  Comic artists generally draw
the original art on 10" x 15" bristol board (or its equivalent) right?  OK
here's the question... is that 10 x 15 measurement right to the edge of the
printed page, or is it the total height and width of the drawn panels?

I'm guessing it's the total height and width of the drawn panels, and the
actual paper is a bit larger.

I'm basing this guess on the fact that the H & W of the panels usually
comes out to 6" x 9" on the printed page, exactly 2/3 of 10" x 15".
Therefore original art would be reduced to a nice easy figure like 2/3.

ME? Anyone?
