A comic book page is 6-5/8 x 10-3/16 inches. That’s 67.5 square inches of space.
A comic strip is 5-3/4 x 1-3/4 inches. That’s 10 square inches of space.
What if you took all the pages from the comic book and laid them out to make one huge poster. And that poster would depict one large scene. So when you initially read the comic book in book format, you are actually exploring around one large scene. So a 25-page story would yield a 33 by 50-inch poster. (of course there’s the problem that you have pages printed on both sides, so you’d need two comic books to achieve this).
The same method could apply to a comic strip. Take six weeks of daily comics (not including the sundays). That would yield a 17.25 x 21-inch poster. Newspapers would love this, because it would encourage people to
A) Buy the newspaper
B) Go to the funnies section
C) Read the comic
D) Cut out the comic
E) Collect the comics
F) Display the comics
G) Others will see the comics, because they are displayed.
