I guess this would be as good a place as any to ask why today's is in black and white instead of blue and white?
Yeah, since the dark blue was added I'd gotten used to it and liked it. Gave it an "otherworldly" effect.
I guess the blue has really grown on me as suiting the sci-fi strip, was disappointed to see it in b&w and didnt seem to suit the strip at all.
Hopefully its just cause Dave's at Baltimore Comicon and didnt have time to properly blue-ify it.
Here's another vote for The Blue. I came here just to inquire about it.
I always thought the blue color made the whole thing look like a part of a dream. I know that while I may be dreaming in color, the colors are never "really right" - so the strip always seemed like the leftover scene from a dream that I can just kinda remember from last night.
Maybe the implication is that pinching space makes you wake up and that the real action is about to commence now...
