There are tons of old comics I dearly wish we could see recolored, but the original coloring works much better here. I think it has something to do with the art style.
This coloring works better with Silver Age stories, but dear lord, there are so many reprints of comics from the 70's and 80's especially that I wish to god someone would take the time to recolor. Nothing too drastic, but just to clean it up and make it look a little less garish and dotty.
That said, I'm reminded of how some people hate the recoloring for the Neal Adams BATMAN hardcovers. I thought they were gorgeous, but some felt the new colors ruined 'em.
