"What are the differences that we can deal with, without it becoming a barrier? Skin color is great, and it's also great thematically, because skin color is obviously such a big issue on our planet. All the warm tones — from pallid Canadian pink, to beautiful warm browns, and, well, pallid Australian pink — were all taken. So, we were down to blue and green basically — and green had been taken by all those Martian movies with the little green men. So, we have big blue women, not little green men." —(HMFIC) James Cameron on why Avatar aliens are blue [MTV]

hmmm...I wonder if Mr. Cameron was a fan of Tom Yeates and Steve Perry's TIMESPIRITS comics? Something about that "homesick alien singer" Miss Thorneypaws (in blue, at left) seems awfully familiar...
