From A Time Before Digital Coloring... This is The Colourist Artwork, Created during The Actual Production of The Comic It Relates To! Essentially The First Completed Comic Page (and the only one where all the colour is painted by hand!) These pages once formed the guide for the printers doing colour seperations as to how the final comic will look.
How They Are Created: A printis taken from the ink art (usually in a closesize format matching the published page - about 7" x 11") thisis then sent to the colour artist, who uses watercolor paints toadd color detailof how the page will appear once printed. Notes are sometimes added to this art either by the colourist or comics editor to guide the printers. These then become the template for the design of the printing plates that will produce the comic. This is repeated for each page - A comic book may have a print run of 100,000 copies or more, but only the first completed issue wass painted by hand - this is part of that first issue!
