If you like to color – and let’s face it – WE ALL LOVE TO COLOR, then Marvel has a new series of coloring books for you (and me, and our kids, and our friends) arriving in October.
For whatever reason, Marvel is classifying these three comic books as Adult Comic Books, probably because of the level of detail in the art, which is a step above some of the Thomas The Tank Engine coloring books my youngest enjoys.
“Around the world there are several other coloring books for adults hitting the bestseller lists and with Marvel being the premier graphic storytelling medium, now is the perfect time for us to join this latest book market trend,” says David Gabriel, SVP Sales and Marketing, Marvel in a prepared press release. “With Marvel’s Adult Coloring books, fans can add their own personal style to classic Marvel stories. This truly is a way for fans of all ages to be a part of the creative process and bring their personal artistic style to these epic Marvel events.”
For aspiring colorists, taking these books and scanning the pages into Adobe Photoshop seems like a win/win for everyone – especially if you take your artwork online and you are noticed by the Marvel talent scouts.
There are three coloring books headed our way over the next year:
First, the Avengers face their darkest hour as the metallic menace Ultron stands over a ravaged Earth in the AGE OF ULTRON COLORING BOOK. Only a few of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are left standing. And it’s up to you to put the color back into their last ditch effort to save mankind! Featuring the line art of Bryan Hitch, Brandon Peterson, Carlos Pacheco and more, this is your chance to color inside the lines, or outside the lines, of this blockbuster Marvel event!
The Age of Ultron Coloring Book arrives in October and has a $7.99 cover price.
Then, the Eisner award-winning, fan-favorite artwork of Skottie Young comes to life in the LITTLE MARVEL BY SKOTTIE YOUNG COLORING BOOK! Featuring dozens of Young’s beloved covers and irresistible interior pages, this is one you won’t want to miss!
This book arrives in February 2016.
Finally, ask yourself – whose side are you on? More importantly, do you want to make them red, blue, green or yellow? Go inside one of the biggest Marvel events of all time with the CIVIL WAR COLORING BOOK! Captain America and Iron Man stand divided, along with the entire superhuman community. And it’s up to you to put the hue back in these huge Super Hero battles!
Civil War Coloring Book goes on sale in April 2016.
I’m ready to break out my Crayons, are you?
