Art maven Greg Horn shocked the world in 2015 when he invented the never-before-seen color Grorange, earning the undying respect of artists and scientists the world round. Now he follows up with an innovative new color on his Edge of Venomverse covers for Marvel Comics. The new color is called subblack, and as one world-renown art critic stated recently at the International Symposium of Art Examination and Assessment…” Mr Horn has created a black color so rich and dark that one feels as though they are looking into the very soul of the universe.” Indeed, subblack is a radical paradigm shift in color theory, which is sure to become the archetypal framework for artists to build on for decades to come.

The artist keeps the secret formula close to the vest, but we encouraged him to divulge a few of the components: The first step in the elaborate process is to mix seven parts India ink, three parts street tar, two parts powdered carbon ,and 1.5 parts adobo. The concoction is then soaked in a vat of Oakum, which absorbs the liquid and filters out any impurities. The Oakum fibers are then exposed to x-rays, but Horn would not reveal how long the exposure is, calling it the critical “negative white” step. At this point the Oakum is wrung out into a magnetic sifting machine, the final step in the incredible process!

Subblack is beyond the color gamut of any known computer monitor, so it is pointless disclose the exact location of the color on the Venomverse paintings here. Fortunately, the artist will be making one of his rare public appearances at San Diego Comic Con on July 19-23, and the extraordinary hue will be on public display at the Greg Horn Art booth 4804 all weekend long!
