Those early computer colored comics were definitely garish in coloring. Yeah, it still is a problem today, but in those first few years, it did seem everything was colored so that people and objects appeared to be made a plastic.

Love the latest page - are they out on Peter Corbeau’s boat again?!? Xavier must have some kind of timeshare deal going!

One thing I love about this series is the way it connects the X-Men with the rest of the Marvel Universe, which is something that Claremont seemed to pull away from after JB left.

In Chris' defense (!!), as the X-Men gained popularity, more and more writers wanted to use them, often without clearing that use with the X-Office. To "protect" the characters and his storylines, Chris did the best he could to separate them from the mainstream of the MU.

----

Interesting that this separation led them down a decidedly darker path.

“Darker” was the New! Original! Idea! in those days. A rabbit hole we all went down.

My issue with computer colouring is overly shiny skin -
especially boobs for some reason.

Even though the Sub-Mariner I first "met" wore those heavy metal bracelets, I hope JB finds a way to get rid of them again. The visuals for a swimmer like Namor work better without them.

Metals reflect the color of the metal in the highlight, but plastics reflect the white from a top-coat epoxy layer.

Maybe the early computer colorists forgot that.

I made sure this boat looked nothing like Corbeau's just so no one would make that assumption.

Time wasted, I guess.

Some good news:

Page shuffling in the process of getting rid of that subplot has ended up with a different sequence of pages in this issue. So by the time all are posted, there may be 21, not 19!

I predict zero complaints. JB, you are 3-4 issues ahead of your current released pages on Elsewhen and even if this was being printed would you be able to shuffle pages, plot lines, etc. with the same ease?
