You might think I'm being lazy with the coloring, but I... uh... eh, you're right. Sometimes when I read a comic with tons of ink work and lots of coloring I don't enjoy it.
If it looks like the illustrator spent hours on a page I feel guilty if I don't in turn look at it for that many hours. I like thinking the gag was still funny and enjoyable to the illustrator by the time the drawing was finished, and not a hated and despised thing.
If I see a comic nowadays with the airbrushed shading I unintentionally take that into consideration while I try to read the story and it slows down the action.
This depends on the genre of the comic for me. If it's a scary story then I do like seeing the heavy tooling and long hours of work. That maybe even adds to the scariness and creepiness when I know the illustrator's fingers, eyes and neck where in pain by the time the page was finished.
There. I rambled again. I haven't rambled for a few days.
