When you open a comic book the first thing you generaly see is the color. Now of course the story is there, but it’s the fascinating colors that really capture our senses. It’s amazing how emotionally engaged you can become by mearly letting your eyes run over the colors. In an effort to shine some light on this element of comics, we interviewed Ashley Underwood a former Marvel Comic colorist employee. Underwood has done work on the following comics just to name a few:

– Hellstorm: Prince of Lies – circa 1993

-Caged Heat Issue 1, 2 and 3 – circa 1995

-Dawn – circa 1995

-Heroic Tales – circa 1997

– X-Men: The Complete Age of Apocalypse Epic Book 2 circa 2005
