A group of us who read the strip like to add a bit of color to Fred's work. Why not? A single person could color the entire strip, and some people do; that's fine. We think it's interesting to let people do one panel each, independently, and then put the panels together to form a sort of collage. Sure, the color of the shirts or the tint of hair may vary from start to finish, but this variety allows us to see a range of ways to interpret the ideas and action of the comic. It also helps us to learn from each other.
