I love STC Amy, and for some reason I think green looks great on her :D

We’re (just some of!) the crew from Sonic the Comic Online, a fan continuation of the UK’s old SEGA comic that we’ve been working on for over ten years.
We have a team of many different nationalities, genders, sexual orientation, social economic backgrounds, ages and spiritual beliefs brought together by a comic we all loved as children.
Once you read the right comic at the right time, your brain is changed for life. And a good thing too! Let’s have every nationality, gender, orientation, class, age, and belief coming together over the comics they love!

STC Turns 21!

29th May 2014

Sonic the Comic is 21 today! (And STC-O is 11!)

image

We’ve also got a couple of special birthdays too! First up is our very own Megadroid who also turns 21 today. And next up is STC writer extraordinaire Nigel Kitching, who’s a little bit more than 21 today! ;)

image

Remember to visit Megadroid’s Facebook page to wish him a Happy Birthday (and also to tell him to get back to work, we’ve got a new issue to finish!).

segamemories:

Duncan Gutteridge did illustration work for Sega back in the early 90’s, including the Streets of Rage 2 box art, an Ecco the Dolphin illustration and every image in the Sonic 2 1993 calender seen above. These images were also used on other pieces of merchandise such as the Puffin Adventure Gamebooks, posters as well as a tie I own.

Duncan was attending the MCM Expo London Comic Con this weekend, displaying the original calender and prints alongside his current illustration and portrait work.

I had a good chat with him and he told me the illustrations he did were intended just for the calender, so Sega were a bit cheeky using them on other merchandise though he didn’t mind as the exposure was good. I also found out that all the illustrations, while given a lot of creative freedom, were all based on Sonic 2 levels, meaning the jungle and city images may just have been based on cancelled zones Wood Zone and Genocide City.

Safe to say these images were a big part of my childhood and it was great to meet the man behind them. The image of Oil Ocean Zone was always a favorite of mine in particular.

(Another note: The Sonic 2 image seen inside the calender is a different illustration to the one seen on Sonic 2’s box art. According to Duncan he was requested to re-draw the art, the original of which was by Greg Martin.)

I’m sure a lot of people will recognise this man’s work from the awesome pin-ups from STC, especially those who had the giant Oil Ocean poster!
