My point being is that I peeked ahead a bit and realized this arc will run more than 13 Sundays . . . maybe more like 18. Again, it's all fun stuff, so no one's going to suffer here. The color confusion dies down after a few Sundays and then it's almost normal.
I had an email come in from Don that had a theory about the 'off-colors':
I think the strange colors on the Pogo page you posted today result from the work having been done by a color-blind person.
Notice the preponderance of blue and yellow. These are the colors that people with varying degrees of red-green blindness can still see. (Blindness to the blue-yellow axis is very rare.)
As to why Walt Kelly would accept these results - perhaps he was too ill to feel like arguing.
That's certainly a possibility. And it's humorous to think how someone with color-blindness could be put in the position of being in charge of colors.
But as you'll see, in posts to come, the colors change in strangeness that make you think that someone's just not paying attention. The oddest detail is Churchy's two-tone head and beak. But overall the colors are lively, the art is great and the story is fun. So I'll shut up for now about this chromatic anomaly.
Enjoy the show!
