Weird Adventure Wednesday Redux (An experiment with color)

In glorious color

Cleaned up

Original Scanned image

I decided to give color a try in my Weird Adventure Wednesday illustrations, so I loaded one into Gimp and played around a bit.  I cleaned up the graph paper lines from the original hand drawn image, then colored it in.  I did it quickly, and I missed a few spots, but overall I'm rather happy with the results.  I think that the color adds to the cartoony feel that I'm going for.  I'm not sure that I'll be doing color illustrations regularly going forward, but I'll probably slip one in from time to time.  So what does everyone think?  Do you prefer color or black and white?
