Another consideration:
All that’s well and good, but what if you take your standard office-size photocopy paper (8.5″ X 11″), and fold it the SHORT way first? Here’s what you get:

it’s 4.25″ X 11″. It could be great for a comic about tall buildings, or one bound calendar-style of daily comic strips. Then what if you fold it again, this time the long way?

You get a book that’s the exact same size as “minicomic size” (above). but ITS “SPINE” IS ON THE SHORT SIDE, which makes it a horizontal book.
