    Here is the first of the 12 episodes of STRANGE ADVENTURES (starring Adam Strange) which will appear in Wednesday Comics, with coloring by Jose Villarrubia, who collaborated with me on Batman:Year 100. Jose is using a vintage palette made up of only 128 colors.

    There are a couple of minor edits to follow. We'll see the final version, in print in July 2009.

    timrazo, Kyle Pellet / Pellet Factory, and 35 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I like the colors and the architecture a lot, that 144 colors idea seems pretty foolproof.

      Can't wait for this. The look reminds me a bit of Valerian. Was that an influence?

      Valerian is the bomb-- MAZIERES is as always a big influence...!

      Great idea - love the coloring and also your golden age almost Barsoomian take on what lies at the far side of the Zeta Ray

      Rad. I would at least need a cup of coffee before I did all that first thing in the morning.

      I imagine that the colour palette choice was a romantic decission, which is super cool, but really, I find it just PERFECT with your inking style. Specially.
      LOVE it!!!

      Do you know what kind of paper you're working with yet? I'd kill to see those colors on actual newsprint.

      I also loved the Medicine Man post from your blog. I'd love to see you do that one up as a short story, like you used to in Negative Burn.

      Oh man, I'm really excited for this. Love the use of color for this page!

      this is awesome! I like the idea of limiting the colors to the 144 color pallet.

      are there any plans for your Star Trek piece for Wired to be printed?
