Comment: Corben's color artwork has nothing new to give, nor do Jan Strand's story. In Children of Fire #3 suppoused to be a story "Meet the Faces you Feet" instead of this one.
Alternatives: Color versions (//) are close to each other. The biggest difference is the "brown" shirts. In it is blueish, in redish, and in brownish. And one of the few biggest difference you can find from a single frame on pg 7 (last one): in version it is the most lighest one. The person for who Luter is showing a kitty, has shirt same color as his face. Generally the version has got the most lightest colors all over.
