New to Sonic the Comic?

Recommended Posts

I've always been dangerously curious about StC; yet I never really went 'into' it.

 

The art for this so far has been stellar. Personal fav to Super Sonic and the poor, poor Death Egg Robot.

I really applaud this effort! It's a nice, simplified way to explain the continuity and loads of fun to read with how it breaks the Fourth Wall and admits some parts make no sense or are just ridiculous in hindsight.

 

Interesting to see Jon Gray's work on the comic as well; his style fits comedic things better but I think Super Sonic's design is crazy enough he actually works really well with it.

As I've said elsewhere, I think this is a fantastic idea for both new and older readers.

 

For me as an oldie it's really nice to see these classic STC moments redrawn and summarised, they're sort of like a revision card! biggrin.png The humour is very fitting as well. For new readers it's telling them that STC's history is very different from all other Sonic media, and it's introducing them to the STC-specific characters as well, such as the Kintobor computer.

 

The artwork by the usual STCO team is awesome as always, but getting Archie artists involved as well is bloody fantastic! biggrin.png Jon Gray's Super Sonic works so well!! Look at him, he looks proper insane! biggrin.png

 

Well done guys, this is a great idea and has been executed brilliantly!

Loving Dubs' take on STC's Super Sonic. This should be a fun trip down memory lane.

 

I don't suppose you'll manage to get any other Archie artists in on this? tongue.png

Word is that there are more Archie artists to come. Maybe just one, maybe more, I dunno. The only thing I managed to wrangle in terms of info is that Evan Stanley was not one of them.

I'm hoping for Yardley, personally.

That's fairly interesting Miss Stanley isn't one of the artists involved. She's a major Sonic fan outside her official work so I find it surprising she'd turn it down. Therefore my guess is she's just being worked so heavily between Archie and her own projects she just can't find the time.

 

Darn shame, really!

Unfortunately not. It officially stopped running in 2002 I think?   Although there is a fan continuation.
Unofficial continuation… given the sorts of people who've been contributing material of late… I'd be loathe to describe Nigel Kitching as a "fan".

I'm really not going to be drawn into an argument over this so lets just stick to the facts.

 

It's started by fans, its not endorsed by Sega, nor is it paying a fee to Sega for the Sonic license, nor has it a license from egmont fleetway either. if I'm wrong on any of those things feel free to correct me.

 

If I'm not wrong with those things (especially the license fee point), it's a fan continuation, not an official product. Doesn't matter who works on it. .... and... also the fact it says so on STCO's own website is kinda a giveaway.

Not quibbling over any of those things (although I don't see how Egmont could issue a license given it doesn't legally own any aspect of STC, which is more than can be said of the original creators). Do you consider Nigel Kitching, who wrote most of the original run of STC and wrote the lead strip in the most recent issue, to be a "fan"?
