Explode the Code vs Plaid Phonics?

Explode the Code or Modern Curriculum Press's Plaid Phonics or something else?
I've used Explode the Code when teaching in the public schools as well as with my DS this year. I like the books and how they teach, but I have a few complaints. I wish they were in color b/c it would be more engaging for DS. And there are always a few pictures that both DS and my students could not figure out and sometimes I really had to think about too!
Looking for opinions on Modern Curriculum press or something else as an alternative to ETC. Thanks!

We have been happy with MCP plaid phonics. I much prefer it over ETC.

Another vote for MCP Plaid Phonics, we prefer the older version.
