Blackwing's Volume 64 goes back to the Golden Age of comics, when stories of superheroes and two-fisted detectives were printed on cheap, flimsy paper. That paper quality made full-colour printing next to impossible, so artists and printers found crafty ways to communicate the colourful drama of these oversized adventures. The halftone printing method and Ben Day processing is what comes to mind when we think of comics, turning a limitation into an iconic feature. We've long since moved on from halftone dots, with advances in CMYK printing and digital colouring giving greater nuance and vibrancy, but we'll always hold a place in our heart for the spotty Supermans and dotted Dick Tracys of the early 20th century.
This set of 10 Replacement Erasers covers the four base printing colours – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black – in tribute to this classic era of a legendary art form.
