While every single person in the creative process is incredibly important, it’s often the writer and the penciller who get mentioned, with the inker sometimes getting credit as well. Yet without the colorist, comics would be a completely different medium. Hence colorist appreciation day!

Here are a few of my favorite colorists, along with some panels that really showcase their work.

Kari read her first comic at the age of nine – her brother's much-abused copy of Archie - and promptly forgot about it. Now, nearly two decades later, she has rediscovered the genre and has yet to look back. She enjoys some Marvel comics, but her heart lives in the DC universe.
