comic book proportions

US printed live area size of a comicbook page is W6" x H9" (W15.2cm x H22.9cm). This is a 2:3 ratio.
Create the original art at 150% of reproduction size.
To do this multiply the dimensions by 1.5 making the live area W9" x H13.5"(W22.9cm x H34.3cm)

Then reduce the original art W9" x H13.5" by 67% to fit into W6" x H9" live area.
