Here’s a thought about comics grids invoking rhythm

I was asked why I always stuck to that nine panel grid in From hell and Alec and I said it was all about the patterns, and I referred to the game of noughts and crosses, or whatever you call it in your part of the world […] And how this opens up all the directions, all simultaneously. You can’t have patterns with 2. That’s just coincidence. You need to be working in 3.
