Lately I find myself writing up a lot of Kickstarter Spotlights, mostly comic-related. This one is a bit different in that it’s about comic book creation and not the publication of an individual comic. Specifically, it’s about coloring comics digitally. I’m sure most of us have some version of Photoshop and we use it for a wide range of things. While I might use it to place a likeness of my ex-wife’s face on a horse’s rear, you might create awesome art projects for school or work. To each his own, I always say.
But maybe you have an itch to get into the comic book biz and your focus is coloring the artwork. Well, friends, this is the book for you. How do you get this awesome manual, you ask? Well, all you have to do is fund Hi-Fi Color for Comics!

Okay, first off, the individuals listed above were done so in the order in which their stories were placed in the anthology, subdivided by the type of work they contributed. No offense was implied towards any person who might have been placed incorrectly in this review. There, I’ve been about as politically correct as I can be. All characters are based upon the work of Robert E. Howard. This is, after all, Robert E. Howard’s Savage Sword, Volume 1.
