I have started noticing the colouring on comics, this is a bad sign for my overall geekiness level

Dear Marvel,

I am totally over-the-moon happy that you have started giving work to Jamie McKelvie because he is amazing. I can assure you that I would never have bothered with Cable #11 without his involvement. But please could you start giving him colourists who are more simpatico with his style? It's very clean and minimalist and expressive in its simplicity and when you put too much fussiness into the colouring it detracts from that. The difference between the lineart I saw on Newsarama-or-wherever for his Nightcrawler story in that X Men thing and the finished product was a bit depressing, and with Cable it is even worse. I would say check out Suburban Glamour for how to Do It Right, but you must have already seen it, so you already know. Seriously, it's like hiring Michaelangelo to paint your chapel and handing him a roller-brush.


PS If you let Bendis permanently dethrone Doc Strange as Sorceror Supreme, I will ... moan about it on the Internet. A lot.
