Strip Panel Naked: Coloring Tradd Moore In 'Ghost Rider' #1
Tradd Moore’s work is crazy, detailed, over-the-top nonsense, so it’s great to see him back on a story --- no matter how short --- for Ghost Rider #1. Moore is especially notable for his flexibility, and the opportunities for fun this provides to his collaborators. With his work being larger than life, it means the colorist working with him can play around with their work, too. They don’t necessarily have to strive for realism in their rendering, and can make the colors really pop and get in your face. Val Staples has that opportunity with their short story in Ghost Rider, and she takes it.
