I don't remember color holds---I look it up---but today's "new toy" is AI generated art.  Professional illustrators are in an absolute tizzy this year because they are certain robots will replace them in the near future.

I'm not sure where Mr. Byrne stands on Frank Miller's work, but here's an article written my a fellow who approached DC to tell them that were using the entirely wrong STYLE of coloring for Miller's recent work.

Boy, I could write an essay on what's wrong with how comics are produced today. As a lifelong reader, with the means to feed my habit, I am of the perfect potential demographic to consume; something I did at great (but never regretted) cost for decades. Today I regularly purchase ZERO comics. Sure, I follow the news, visit the store, flick through the issues - but nothing grabs me like a random issue off the newsstand did 40 years ago. Those ancient tomes may not have featured 'cool' artists or 'edgy' authors - but boy did those guys & gals know how to tell & illustrate a narrative story. No mess, no fuss, just getting to the point ASAP. It was wondrous. It was consuming and enthralling. And it still is, today. I would rather re-read my old favourites than endure what passes for comics today. I used to feel I was invested in an ever-emerging, ongoing narrative of beloved characters. Now titles are rebooted annually. Each reboot adopts an approach that largely ignores everything that went before. If anything, I just feel sad that generations younger than myself will never know the wonder I experienced, unless they are a particular breed to seek out and appreciate the produce of yesteryear.
