This is another page where I played around with layout a little bit more. I had recently read Cry Havoc #1 (which is good, check it out), and Ryan Kelly did a lot of layouts where panels would be grouped together with a coloured border. I only have two colours available in HEAT, but I thought it was something I could adapt. I think it makes the strip read cleanly while allowing me to keep the action panels horizontal.
