Of all the things that the addition of color really enhances with this story arc, I’d say my favorites are Sky and Bocce. With Sky, the changes from blue to shiny are much more obvious with color, and with Bocce, his energy arm stands out much more now.
And of course, how would you tell a live root beetle from a cooked one without color?? How??!!
BTW, many people have asked if I’ll be coloring the first story anytime soon, and I have to say “No.” I’d love to, and I’m sure I will at some point. But given the undertaking, I’d MUCH rather put that time and effort into new stories than go back and revisit a previous one. Especially given the larger story I’ve had planned for the series from the beginning.
