Good Vs. Evil in the comic colour palette

When it comes to superhero comics, colour is a big deal. The psychology of colour is an important storytelling tool. Noting its importance to the comic book medium – especially in superhero comics – ColourLovers has created an infographic that highlights the colour theory employed by Marvel and DC Comics, amongst others, over the years.

While the data used for this infographic isn't scientific or fully comprehensive, including every superhero would be more or less impossible and demand too many qualifiers to make for a snappy chart. All in all the infographic is just a simple reminder of basic color theory as it relates to superhero titles. Head over to ColourLovers for the full size infographic.
