Reading Yen Press released the first rework of Issue 01: The Twelve Portals of the W.i.t.c.h. comics. Here's a link: www.facebook.com/pg/yenpress/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1595969167140737

What do you think about it? :-? (Confused) 
The saturation is turned too high, in my opinion. The balance of the colours is lost and there are heavy colour burn-outs, especially with blue and green.
Also, the transformation was censored and they messed up Will's colours in that same attempt. you angry :new shading:

Honestly the censored version is the version I grew up with, so that one isn't as big of a deal. But I get what you mean by some of the colors. Yikes

Oh really? Interesting. I didn't even know they had a censored version of the comics What a shame! Emoticon  well, until the Yen Press reprint thing here.
Yeah, the colours are what bothers me the most. The censorship I can live with, though I don't like that they switched the colours of Will's outfit in that one panel. But those colours...
My eyes hurt from looking at them! But it's possible they look better when printed.

I thought Yen Press was a DC Comics imprint used for the purpose of publishing non-American comics.

That's possible. I don't know much about Yen Press apart from the fact that they're printing the first W.i.t.c.h. vomics again.

The real problem is: why all that pointless censorship? :(

I know, right? Especially since they censored Will when cowering, where you wouldn't see much anyways... but in the second panel of her dream of the Heart at the beginning of the issue you can clearly make out her boobs (yes, I said it!) and there's no censorship... So either they didn't see it or... didn't think it was relevant? It's just weird.

you werent kidding, the contrast of colours burning together is real heavy. i dont know what they were going for, with the colours so overwhelming its hard to focus on since everything sticks out.

i dont think they need to rework something so perfect, hopefully they will catch on. C:

Yeah my eyes hurt just from looking at some of the colours. The gamma's really high. :radiated:

Me neither. I love the old one just as it is! But it's still nice they're printing it again and making it available to a new generation. 
catching love
