Vids I Dig 368: Comic Tropes: The History of Comic Book Coloring (and How Modern Technology Can Ruin Reprints)

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Colors are the first thing you observe when you look at a comic book. This episode discusses the process of coloring comic books from the original screen prints with ben day dots to the modern digital methods with computers. But most important of all are the choices that colorists make. Famous colorists include Stan Goldberg, Marie Severin, Jim Steranko, Lynn Varley, John Higgins, Richmond Lewis, Tatjana Wood, Steve Oliff, Matthew Hollingsworth, Dave Stewart, Jordie Bellaire, Marte Gracia and many, many more. One of the biggest challenges isn’t just selecting the best color palette but making sure the printer and paper used will work with those choices.
