People are having strong reactions to the Kermit/Franklin-esque Pantone Color of the Year

When Pantone declares its Color of the Year, people take it very seriously. Yesterday morning, the company announced Greenery as the hue to obsess over in 2017. Its reasoning is that the public is looking for a shade that reflects a desire for a fresh start in a complicated political and cultural landscape — hence, a reference to nature seemed appropriate. Leading up to the big reveal, though, people had a different idea of what that would mean for 2017, given 2016’s not-so-optimistic track record.

Hey everyone! Nacho, Ellipsis, and I would like to sincerely thank everyone who bought us a coffee through our “ko-fi” page! We love making comics to share with you all, and while we certainly don’t expect kick back we are so grateful to those who sent us such kind gifts! Your generosity keeps us warm and caffeinated through our late nights drawing comics. Thank you so much!
