As I encountered his art in other comics, I came to realize that Colon was someone who could draw a great Tony Stark, Mandarin or Sub Mariner, but bright shiny superhero suits weren't really his forte.
And while there's no denying his fabulous run on Daredevil, what Colan was best suited for (IMO) was dramatic supernatural tales, which is probably why he clicked so well on Tomb of Dracula and Dr. Strange.
or Night Force
All in all, it makes me wish we had seen Colan on more titles like these during this era (as opposed to Wonder Woman).
Here are some I think he would have been great on:
- Man-Thing (where he could have worked with Howard the Duck cohort, Steve Gerber)
- Swamp Thing
- Phantom Stranger
- Ghost Rider
- The Demon
- Black Orchid
And while we'll never get to see what his versions of such stories might have been like, I'm thankful for the great work he did bring us.
