See this episode in its original format.
This episode was the first vertical four-panel. We didn't do a lot of those, they were sporadic, and it was an odd experiment on our parts. It's reformatted above, (foreshadowing our eight-panel wonders,) but the original layout can be seen over here.
We knew the verticals would likely give us more space on the page, so we think we remember asking permission from TSR before doing the strips in that direction...
Anyway, they did eventually ask us to stop with the verticals. But for awhile, the extra centimeters were all ours, baby!
