WHAT COMIC BOOK COLORIST'S COLOR GUIDE ARTWORK IS: Color guide art pages are different from black and white comic book artwork. Much like original artwork, color guides are also one of a kind and were vital in the production of the actual comic book, before computer coloring replaced hand painted color guide art pages. Color guides are re-sized xerox copies of the pencil & ink original art that are assigned to the issue's colorist, and then hand colored/hand painted by that colorist. The page sizes vary, but the images on the paper are pretty much the same size as the published comic. Once in a while, a color guide page is referred to as a "color key", but the term color keys has fallen out of common use in recent years. Some color guides are assigned written "color codes" for the printers to follow. Because comic books are now colored by computers, there won't be any new color guides to collect since computers made hand painted paper color guide artwork extinct. Most of the vintage comic book color guides have been lost or destroyed, and they're the one of a kind original art of the Marvel Comics Colorist or the DC Comics Colorist.
