I know that I'll probably get laughed at some, but I was wondering if anybody could give me some advice about reading manga/graphic novels. I'm well acquainted with the western style of comic book/graphic novel; but I'm trying to get used to the ones that read back to front, as it were. Is there a rhyme or reason to the panel layout? Do I always read the right page and then the left. Do I start at the upper left panel, then the upper right, then the lower left, and then the lower right? Or do I start at the upper left and go clockwise? If it's a two panel page split horizontally, do I start at the top panel? Maybe I've got it all wrong, and it's exactly opposite of western style comic books and I start on the right hand page, lower right panel, then lower left, then upper right, then upper left, then on to the left hand page and repeat? Please help, and please forgive my ignorance.
No matter where you go, there you are.
