The two fundamental operations of the language of comics are page layout and breakdown. Page layout defines the surface area, shape, and placement of the panels on the page, hence establishing their relative position and proportions. One objective criterion for classifying all existing and possible pages into two groups is frame regularity. This chapter examines the different degrees of regularity of page layout as well as the rhetorical uses of page layout. It also considers page layout in the work of Chris Ware.
