I’ve been really into looking at cutaway drawings.
There’s a Hemmingway line that I always misquote about how when writing you should first start with something true. I think about that in comics a lot. When I was a teenager I’d read Kenichi Sonada’s Gunsmith cats comics and they always had real shoes on. So seeing a crazy gun fight in Converse all stars made the whole thing feel more grounded.

I think cutaways can operate on that same comics science. plus I’m always excited about being able to draw puzzle diagrams in my pages.
