Description: Story, Firelilly, Page 50. Story, Starfall, Page 87. All of the stories within this anthology only use red alongside black and white to create visual effects. Both the page from Firelilly and from Starfall are examples of monochrome, also called pantone comic coloration, though the creators of each have chosen to use the colors in different ways. Firelilly in this example uses the red as a background, highlight, and accent color all at once, while Starfall chooses only to use the red as an accent. The single color used by monochromatic works can also be used for shading and as the main line color instead of black. It’s all up to the artist.
