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?

  1. Um… the Marvel Essentials paperbacks can be used in a similar manner, AND the paper is almost as crappy as the old Golden Press coloring books!

    Hmmm… trying to color Cap in MS Paint, and there’s a lot of greyscale pixels blocking the paint bucket.

  2. I wouldn’t recommend coloring any of this stuff: it wasn’t drawn with ‘fun’ coloring in mind, it was done for Photoshop flatters and professional colorists. Overly complex and maddening. Don’t bother. Unless you are doing a tryout for the Big 2.

    I tend to agree. Coloring-books-for-adults are definitely a trend (go figure) but if you look at what’s popular out there–Johanna Batsford or Millie Marotta’s books–it’s clear that while those books’ designs are intricate, they are also clean. The former is what makes them appeal to adults, but it’s the latter that makes them work as coloring books.

    Just taking the color out of artwork designed for modern comic books–with all its cross-hatching and deep shadows and sophisticated inking–does not a coloring book make. But, hey, good for Marvel for identifying a trend and jumping on the bandwagon. More folks will follow, I am sure.
