Folks, how do you feel about color? I have been adding a bit of color to my strips and I think I am going to ratchet it up over time, but I don’t really know. I haven’t done much with color in my life and don’t feel like I know a lot about it, but I have a lot of colored inks here at the house. Maybe I should give it a crack? I don’t know. I have been doing some spot color here and there, as I think you’ve noticed.

I know the comics that use lots of color, in general, are the more popular ones, but I don’t know… I don’t really notice a huge difference. A lot of my favorite comics use little or no color, but … I really liked adding the circles on the walls in this one. I thought they added something. Do you think they added anything?

Should I do more color?
