I was showing someone who does work in the comic industry, and they commented on my gutters. Mostly that they seemed too small, now I'm not really asking for any kind of extemption from my critique, but I have seen gutters in comics vary from being very close, to being too large. And I tend to try to make them a bit smaller because I dislike wasted space. That said I have seen other comics with much smaller gutters than me, and I really haven't been bothered or even notice them when I read, so what do you think? Does it really make a difference in story telling, or is it mostly simply a preference? I have read Understanding Comics so I understand that principle of timing, but it has never been something I really so considered in general since there usually isn't much time passing between my panels anyway.
