I started out with the colored version in norwegian, then my dad got me the Father Tree graphic volumes 1-8 together with the first New Blood and Hidden Years Graphic novels (all in color and english) for my birthday. From there I went on to Readers Collection which is all black and white. I like the black and white versions best when they are only inked. When colored comics are reprinted in black and white, I sometimes miss the sharpness in the drawings compared to the ones that were only inked. The first issue in Blood of ten chiefs is a very different reading experience in color vs black and white, because of the aquarelle art.
