Educate Yourself With Bruce And Roos: Word Balloon Order

Okay so it turns out my biggest pet peeve with amateur comics is people not knowing what proper reading order for word balloons is. You can’t just put them wherever is most convenient for the rest of the picture, unfortunately.

Naturally, this applies to English, manga has its reading priority facing the top-right of the panel instead, and tends to finish columns before continuing rows, on account of the native top-bottom right-left writing direction.

    'S'funny. I just went back and looked at the very first Housepets! strip from over ten years ago, and you were following these rules religiously, even then.

      These rules are intuitive for me because I learned to read from comics. However, it's apparently not intuitive for everyone else, so this guide exists now.
