Thanks, Eppy! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> I've been thinking about looking for a colorist for the Sunday comics, actually. We'll see.

I'm loving the comic Nick, and the art is great, but I was just wondering... Are you going to color them? Maybe on Sundays or something like that? I just think it would make it easier to see.

Some things are just better in b&w.<P>For example, as Gus Van Sant (aka dumbass) was nice enough to point out, the movie Psycho is much better without color. The b&w adds to the mood, much like it does in BoD.<P>And anyone who has seen the mutilated (colorized) versions of movies like Casablanca knows what I'm talking about too.

(Hey, where's 'al'? Did I register 'al' on the forum? It says it's already taken. Did I take it? Curse my brain parasites!)<P>I kind of like the Black and White look. Sometimes, if you can't color it well, don't bother coloring it at all. Wait... that didn't come out quite right.<P>My point being, look at a comic like "The Tick". It really looks better, IMHO, in black and white than is does in color.<P>Exibit B. Since Black of Destiny is a more serious comic, I think it would be better to maintain consistancy thoughout the week. And it's not even updated on Sundays :P.<P>Point being, wait... I always used that phrase. Let me pick another one.<P>You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar. Wait... that one doesn't apply to the situaion.<P>Ok let <I>n</I> be a witty phrase that pertains to the current context.<P><I>n</I>, I think I might be inclined to keep (that is, if I were in charge) BoD black and white though and though, or at least whip up a demo strip that's not going to be used in the real comic, and put a community vote to it. Maybe compare the color version and black and white version side by side.<P>Now, I'm get off my soapbox before I'm washing tomato stains out of my Sunday suit. Why the hell am I wearing my Sunday suit on... what day is it? ([al@localhost iptest]$ date) Ah. Thursday. Very good. My plan will soon be set in motion, and all of humanity will perish!<P><B>BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!</B>

Oh, I agree that some things should be left in B&W. I'm strongly against the colorizations of B&W movies, but I felt that it would be easier to see the comic if it were in color. I often have a hard time telling the characters apart, because all I see is a mass of gray for both of them. Maybe that's just my problem. I'll keep reading the comic whether it gets colorized or not, it was just a suggestion.<P>Love ya Nick! ^_^

I agree on the liking the Black and White. I'm not sure how it would look in color. The black and white is striking. <P>Always

Kiggy! This is my place! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> I've been familiar with Nick's other comic for about 6 months now. It was only natural that I read his new one too. Check it out if you haven't already, it's really funny.<P>Speaking of which, when are you going to update <I>your</I> comic, eh? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by Eponine (edited 07-15-2001).]
