Red Sells ?
Steve has a bunch of original artwork up for auction on eBay right now. Among the various pages and covers is this original Mutanimals regular series #1 blueline cover.
This is how we did colors at Mirage back then, before Photoshop came along. Interesting to note is the green background color that was approved and should have seen print. However, our editors at Archie kept saying "red sells comics," and thus wanted this first issue to have red on it somewhere. Hence the change.
I don't know... I like the "jungle" colors on Steve's original. What do you think? Does red sell comics to you? Or is it a bunch of Archie hogwash? Pete and Kev's first turtle issue was red. Hmm. Maybe Archie is right.
