Those who try to diligently stay inside the lines will get one of their greatest challenges with the publications of TONY MILLIONAIRE’S SEA MONSTERS COLORING BOOK this September.
The adult coloring book craze has been a godsend to the publishing industry, with massive sales and attention. And comics publishers are picking up on it. Image Comics has joined the fray with a Walking Dead coloring book and now a Spawn coloring book, which comes out on April 19th. I’m told that coloring is relaxing and helps adults unwind after stressful days of looking at pixels and Buzzfeed for hours.
And surely nothing could be more relaxing than filling the work of Todd McFarlane with pleasing and harmonious hues.
Can YOU color Bryan Hitch or Carlos Pacheco? Is your crayon shading up to the task of finding the light source? Or staying on model? You’ll soon get the chance to find out, as Marvel is releasing three new coloring books for adults. One is Little Marvel by Skottie Young which is great fun and fairly colorable. The other two are AGE OF ULTRON and CIVIL WAR. Frankly, I think that Age of Ultron page would drive anyone insane, but I guess the stakes have been raised considerably in coloring book tech.
Would you tackles these with crayons, colored pencils, Doc Martin, or something else?
