Comment: I'm sorry if my prior comments offended you. My initial reaction was one of shock. Please, please, please... PLEASE consider leaving the natural off-white paper backgrounds intact. PLEASE! You don't take out all the off-white areas (for example, the inner areas of looped letters), which makes the discrepancy all the more jarring. I appreciate your scanning the comics; I know how time-consuming this task is. But please be content with reproducing a realistic, accurate record of the pages you put into your scanner. Honestly, I swear... you're not improving the reading experience. It's ambitious of you to attempt, but I strongly suggest that you put that effort into just making an overall balance of the colors and the blacks. Do you have Photoshop? The Levels tool can help you brighten up your scans very easily, without sacrificing the historical record that is important to capture. These comics won't be around forever, and to have an altered record of them is really a sad situation. Thank you for reading my words. This is not an attack on you as a person, nor of your obvious time-consuming efforts. I'd just like to suggest that you can (a) save yourself a lot of unnecessary work and (b) create scans that are lasting historical documents, and respectful treatments of this rare vintage comics material.

Comment: Hi Eubie, thanks for your more calm and reasoned comment. I've emailed Fan and explained much the same ideas to him. I agree with all your points and have pleaded with him to release 'raw' versions as well as his edits. Fingers crossed it happens one day. I'm am very impressed with the lengths he's gone to even acquire access to and scan these from the LOC in Washington! -Yoc

Comment: I honestly apologize for my recent tirade. I'm glad to know someone else in the DCM universe agrees with me. These are more than scans for idle reading pleasure... they're historical documents that preserve these highly perishable publications so that there CAN be a history of comics. I appreciate your attempts to guide "fan777" towards the raw scan philosophy. Thanks.

Comment: I've said it before, I also prefer it scanned, yellow pages and all, just like you're looking at the actual book.

Comment: I'm downloading these, and when I'm done I'm going to unzip them, open the pages in photoshop and fill that glaring white with a color that matches the paper. Here's the thing, just based on how our eyes and brain work, dark colors recede and light ones come forward. The real problem I have with these scans is that I can't enjoy looking at them because my brain is constantly fighting the distracting urge to pay attention to the white. As much as I'm all about preserving these artifacts accurately, ultimately it's not even about preserving the natural look of the paper as much as it is about basic readability.

Comment: fongool makes a good point. He's exactly right about the brighter boarders fighting for attention with the interior art.
