Picked up the last Swamp Thing issue and was surprised to see your name in there Val. Good job! But why didn't they let you do the whole issue? Did they think you would accidentally break the first nine pages?
Also... is there any way you can steal Gabriel Bautista's All Star Western gig? I'm just not feeling his work. Too subtle... not enough contrast.

Story by Scott Snyder!
Art by the talented Marco Rudy!
Color assists by Raunak Singh and Rachel Crockett.
And colors by yours truly.
These are all great pieces, Val. I haven't read much within the regular titles from DC or Marvel over the past few years, so I don't get to see a lot of your work over there. However, I've always enjoyed your stuff elsewhere. I really appreciate how well you seem to be able to adapt your method to the particular artist and story. The pages are extremely vibrant, but still the color never seems to overshadow the original art.
See now that is better. A Venom page with "Venom" in it and nicely colored as well
Oh and the reason I put his name in quotation marks is because to me Venom will only ever be the Symbiote plus Eddie Brock, I do not accept anyone else as Venom and I never will but out of all of the non-Venom's Flash has to be the worst because at least Scorpion kept the mouth full of fangs and the tongue whereas Flash looks so damn generic, hell he looks more like Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe then he does Venom
but then this thread is about the wonderful coloring skills of Val and not about my utter hatred of everything Marvel has been doing for the past few years especially when it comes to Spider-Man and Venom.
Nice work Val.
Great job Val! Glad that you work on some of my regular books.

Wow, these all look incredible, didn't know that we had someone so talented as our Overlord.
Good work on all this stuff, Val. I enjoy your work, my man.
Slightly off topic, but I never got to ask you about this... is there a story behind why you stopped doing the colors for the Brubaker/Phillips books (Criminal, Incognito, Fatale) a while back? I noticed and thought it was odd and meant to ask you what happened there, but kept forgetting to bring it up.

What's odd is I think it was three or four issues in before I noticed the change.
I didn't really notice much of a difference in the colors. In fact, I had sort of assumed you got too busy and they had to replace you and the Dave was doing a pretty good job of matching your tone/style.
Bill :: guitargod694
yeah, Dave really fit in well. That guy is super talented. He even told me "you're a tough act to follow." To get a compliment from Dave Stewart is awesome enough as it is. Plus, if I'm going to be replaced, it's hard to fuss if I'm being replaced by Dave.
Well, since it's October and Halloween is near, here's another cover with some monsters!
