It’s Colorist Appreciation Day 2014!

Colourist Appreciation Day started last year, essentially, from the mind of Jordie Bellaire – who subsequently spent the rest of the year becoming one of the most famous and well-known colourists in comics. In celebration of the anniversary, I’ve compiled a short list of prominent and brilliant comic colorists – who they are, where you can find them, and where you can find out MORE about them.

Let’s make this a year where we all work harder to appreciate the colorists who make comics COMICS. This is by no means a list of all the great colorists out there – let’s consider this a starting point. Suggest other colorists worth supporting and celebrating in the comments!
