After the last round of iterations, I decided to go with the 5 column grid and essentially scrap the design I had. I held onto the concept, but I wanted to start from scratch to really allow myself to get back into the layout. The comic book aesthetics are still kept in mind, but I attempted to integrate them more cohesively and as a more subordinate element. I wanted to add more space, as we discussed during crit and attempted to do so. I think it is getting close but it’s still a little bulky in the center spread. Some refinement is in order but I think it is getting there.
Here is an issu document of the file:
