I originally pitched Chickenhare way back in 2005 as a black and white comic because I very much love black and white comics. That said, there was also another more secret reason… I wasn’t a very confident colorist at the time. I’m happy to say that since that time I have worked hard toward my goal of being able to do the kind of color I felt Chickenhare needed should the time ever come when I could relaunch the series in full color. The ill-fated web-comic I started and then abruptly stopped of what would be book three gave me a larger opportunity to really focus on the color and I was really getting in the groove when Chickenhare got the called to play in the big leagues. Anyway, today I thought I would post a few of the new colored pages for you to check out, not too many because I don’t want to ruin the story for people just discovering the series through Scholastic. I’m really excited to share these with you finally after so many years of talking with fans at comic conventions about what-if and someday scenarios. I feel like we’re finally there.
