Back then, thought I was corny. Now I'm geek, they all know me.
Aw thanks. What a great question about colorists. My favorite colorists right now are Dave Stewart (who you might know from Rucka’s Batwoman run and Dark Horse’s Hell Boy). There is no comic book red like a Dave Stewart red. Fiona Staples does all her own colors for Saga (she also draws and inks it) so she’s definitely on the list. Jordie Bellaire is young but is already making her mark at Marvel and Dark Horse. Matt Hollingsworth gives the Hawkeye books that recognizable purple. There’s also Bettie Breitweiser who has done work for Marvel and Image on Ed Brubaker’s books. Colorists are incredibly important to comics and we should all give them more credit and love!
June Chung’s colors on Birds of Prey were amazing!
Don’t forget the amazing Chrstina Strain, who made Adrian Alphona’s work really pop on Runaways. She’s done a lot of great work at Marvel and elsewhere. She’s also one of the nicest people I’ve met at a Con.
