Parasha: Understanding Comics - September 22nd reading

Oh right! The reading!

This should be good in a black and white comic... Except they cheat and add color for this chapter! Well, that's one way to handle it I guess... how odd, though.

I'm... not really sure what to say about this chapter! It's fairly short, but also it deals a lot with the history and technology of color, and not as much with how it's used in comics itself. I mean we get *some* of that, but it's all intertwined with the "whys" as well, such as why comics tend (or tended, by this point) to have superheroes in bold primary-colored costumes and so on.

So... basically, yeah. It's nice to know some of it I guess, or to have it pointed out why some things are the way they are, but there isn't much to really grab hold of this time around!

Although I could be wrong, and if I am.. please discuss!

Do I really need to add a link to the schedule for the last chapter on Friday? I think not. :p
