Archie Sonic Online is made up of a great group of volunteers who make our comics come alive with the same excitement and fun the original comics had. Our talented staff is the soul of this project, and the credits pages of the comics simply don’t do these brilliant individuals justice. So take a look below and meet our team, past and present, and maybe send them a little support in their other pursuits if you feel so inclined.

Role: Co-Editor in Chief, Writer, Letterer

Personal Message: How’s it going? I’m Dr. Z, my preferred trade is editor and writer. I’ve been a Sonic fan for as long as I’ve had cognitive thought, called myself Sonic’s biggest fan once I did, and the Archie Comics being near and dear to my heart. When I first heard of ASO, I immediately tried out, and while I definitely fumbled at first, persistence and learning from past mistakes allowed me to reach where I am now. Aside from Sonic, I have my own projects in the work I hope to unveil eventually (I swear). Some of my other favorite things include the Tales series, Mega Man, lots of anime and cartoons, and Wakfu.

Personal Message: Hey there, this is GentlemanX, your go-to person for all things Sonic, Archie Sonic, Archie Sonic Online, animation, Nintendo games, tokusatsu and… well a lot of different pop culture stuff. My first Sonic game was Sonic 1 and Sonic 2. I first started reading the Archie Sonic comic with issue 123, and started collecting with issue 140. You can reach me on my Tumblr, Youtube, and DeviantArt accounts, linked above. Hope you enjoy our comic!

 

 

Name: Calvin-Skye
Role: Writer
Personal Message: Hi! I’m Calvin-Skye, ASO’s token Scottish member. I’ve been a Sonic fan for a long time, well, as big as a fan can be who doesn’t play much of the games, watch the shows or read the comics. Partly because my first ever gaming experience that I can recall is getting passed the second controller in Sonic 3, and realizing a moment later ‘I can FLY!’. But that changed in 2012 when I got properly into Sonic in a big way. Outside of Sonic, I’m also a big fan of Thunderbirds (Are Go), Lego, Role-playing, and the Fire Emblem games (even though I’m terrible at them)

Role: Writer

Personal Message: Greetings, people of the internet! inkywaywishes here. I’ve been a Sonic fan ever since I knew video games were a thing, and I’ve been writing for just as long. My interest in writing began with my interest in the Sonic series’ lore and reading the comics with friends, actually, so you can only imagine how awesome it is for me to be writing for this project! I’m so grateful to be here and working with this amazing crew, and I hope you’re having a great time reading our stories! Maybe we’ll even inspire you, too. Also, I’m a huge fan of Splatoon, if it wasn’t obvious. Bright colors, sweet rock and electronic music, 90s vibe, and crazy lore — yeah, I don’t have a type at all, eheh.

Personal Message: Hello everyone, you can call me SonicWindAttack! I’m one of the writers here at Archie Sonic Online, with several of the stories here under my belt already. I’ve been a Sonic fan for as long as I can remember, and when I heard that there was a project to continue the original universe of the Sonic comics, I knew I had to be a part of it. It’s been an incredible experience, learning new things about comic production and having all of these amazingly talented people draw out my scripts. I only hope that my passion for the series, and for writing, can give you guys some worthwhile stories! Let’s do it to it!

Role: Penciler, Letterer

Personal Message: Andrew is the name, and art is the game! I’ve been a huge fan of Sonic since back when I received a Sega Genesis one Christmas as a kid. I immediately fell in love with the series and the characters. Sonic and his friends (and enemies) became a part of what I loved to draw from an early age, and boy did I love to draw! Just like most of us, I was heartbroken to see the series go through its reboot where it tossed out all of the lore and characters that it built up over the years. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy what came next, but the original Archie Sonic continuity holds a special place in my heart. I can’t wait for you all to see what we have in store!

I watched SatAM as kid and I picked up Archie at issue 130 and kept reading to the end. Sally’s my favorite of the SatAM/Archie characters.

Role: Penciler, Writer
Links: Twitter, Youtube, Patreon
Personal Message: Howdy! My name is Fritzy Magpies!, and I’m a cartoonist possibly from an igloo hidden on an iceberg floating somewhere in the Seto Naikai. I like happy sunrises, long walks on the pack ice, and seedless grapes left in the freezer overnight. I dislike the feeling you get when your mom calls you for dinner but your foot is asleep and it feels like it’s being stabbed by a million tiny needles all the way up the stairs. I love to create fun, wholesome, entertaining comics that activate as many emotions as possible. I’m also an actual magpie. よろしくお願いします!

Long time veteran of the Sonic Community for nearly 20 years and former Webmaster of SonicAnime.net and SonicXtra.

I’ve 15+ years under my belt working on ‘Sonic the Comic – Online’ and I’m now digging in to provide my skills and experience with ‘Archie Sonic Online’ and look forward to bringing many stories to you all in future.

Personal Message: Hey y’all, name’s John. I’m mostly known as a Sonic the Hedgehog sprite animator on YouTube and I occasionally do the art thing and make a few illustrations. Always been a fan of pretty much anything and everything to do with Sonic, with the handheld gameboy titles held dearest and truest to my heart since they showed me the love of animation I have today. It’s certainly a pleasure to be a part of this project as I’ll have plenty of chances to draw all my favorite (and maybe some not so favorite) characters! Take care y’all and see ya around.

Name: JonnyUnique
Role: Penciler, Inker, Colorist
Personal Message: Hi there! Thanks for checking out this project and this list of all the talented folks behind it! I’ve been drawing and coloring for as long as I can remember and have enjoyed Sonic in his many forms since 2011. (Well, technically before then, but that was a fan game, so I don’t count it.) When I’m not geeking out about Sonic, I’m usually geeking out about Star Wars or reading the works of Agatha Christie, Lemony Snicket, Rev. W. Awdry, Eoin Colfer and many others. I also spend time honing my art skills, bookbinding, filmmaking, programming, or playing video games.

Instead I focused on doodling in my schoolbooks, so now I’m trying to turn comics into a career! I I’m perpetually injured, always late for something and never seem to have enough time. I like long walks on the beach and spending hours fiddling over details that people will never see that don’t matter in the first place.

Personal Message: Aye guys. RocketPOW! here. I’m that guy who likes to Draw and Animate that you’ve never heard of. While I’m in college for Computer Animation, I do love me a good comic book to draw. Fun fact, when I was a lot younger and before I chose Computer Animation, I wanted to grow up being a comic book penciller. For what exactly? Well Sonic of course! More specifically, The Long-Running (heh-heh) Archie Sonic Comic Series. It was sad to hear that they cancelled the series after some time, but when I heard there was a fan revival of the story, I had to try out. So I wanna take this time to say, Thanks for letting me be a part of the project, and letting me live out my childhood dream. I also hope to entertain you guys with some fun art.
