The Small Gods Special is changing its format from color to black & white.

"We're looking forward to bringing the fans more great stories and assuring them that Small Gods is still one of the best reads to hit the stands!" says Kris Simon, editor of Small Gods.

The Small Gods Special was originally intended to be a color book. One of the reasons it was changed to Black & White is that the Special is a great jumping-on point for new readers and Image didn't want to mislead new fans in to thinking the regular book was also color.

Another reason is that for the inevitable trade paperback, have a small color section raises the production price, so that the price on the collection would have to be higher than what Image wanted to charge the fans.

Writer Jason Rand says "It's a pity we can't put the book out in colour, but Small Gods is a damn good read either way. Juan's greys and colours are like mood music - whatever he's doing, he just uses the perfect style to set off his linework - so we're not going to lose anything by printing in B&W. Still, we're going to get the colour version out somehow, if only as a thank you to all the fans who've stuck with us."
