X-omatic - do you know how they printed the black and white art onto watercolor paper? Did they just load it into a copier or some other way?

to me the coloring in the early Valiant books is the best I've seen in comics, much better than most of the photoshop coloring. I imagine now there's a way to get a similar watercolor effect using Corel Painter, has anyone tried that?
I'm really finding myself a fan of the colors, just as much as the inks. The colors can be very different from the final product and they're always a nice conversation piece.
I couldn't agree more. :)
