No. Really...No.
See the original Crow series for proof...
...and Sin City...
...and most manga.
Unlike what Ted Turner did with Casablanca, where viewers had the choice to turn the color knob on the television down to go back to b&w, once an original b&w comic is colorized, there's no turning back.   
However, owners of b&w books can decide to 'crayola-ize' them on their own....

We did get to see what it would be like in colour at the beginning of Gets It Together in some of the editions.

I do like these coloured pages but I still think it works really well as b&w. (And just imagine how long the books would of taken if they were getting the full colour treatment!) "

Right, somehow I wasn't thinking about the opening to Volume 4... So clearly SP works in both B&W and colour, so it should really be up to the creative team to decide what they want to do. I would buy all 6 SP again if they did hardcover colour versions though, just sayin...

It depends on the comic. Normally, I don't mind 'cause I've been reading manga longer than I read any comics.
