5 New STC Cover shots/Posters in the Image gallery today. Mostly by Nigel Kitching. We have Issue 77, Issue 86 & Issue 88 Covers by Nigel Kitching, Issue 166 cover by Mick McMahon and a poster by artist unknown. OH and issue 44's Cover by Carl Flint ^_^
Whoa.. Busy-busy.. Big Comic Update on the STC information front. I have pretty much completed the free Gifts listings. I just need to fill in some small details (like when a poster is a reprint of a cover image) and figure out the artists for ones that don't list them, and then that's it.
Hope you enjoy the work.
EDIT: ah.. small problem.. i don't think you guys will be able to view that information right now.. Sorry ^_^ won't be too long
EDIT Again: Okay, You can now view more detailed information on Fleetway's Sonic the Comic, including Fan submissions (only about 20 issues worth done so far) and Free Gifts. Not many larger cover shots have been done yet, i'll be working on them though.
Just a few small come updates. I've added detail page displays for the Archie Regular and Limit oringal series and i've add Free Gift feature where it will tell you what free gifts came with the issues. Not much of them so far, but it's there and starting to build up.
A new game (After long last ¬_¬) has been added to the our games section. Super Sonic Pinball! It's a pinball game in which you can play as Either Sonic or Super Sonic, have a selection of about 4 different background tracks..
Also, with a global online highscore chart and local on computer high score.
Great For all! Carl Flint, Artist with Sonic the Comic (Fleetway), who did many of the classic Covers as well as Strips, Posters and other stuff, has been interviewed by Myself and that Interview is now live on the site! (Info->Interviews) and not only that, Mr Flint has created an oringal drawing to go with the interview, and that is up there too.
Needless to say, i'm very excited about this and it's a great read, I hope you all enjoy it (and no, don't rip off the art please).
It only works on the STC Poster Mag so far (as a bit of a test) but if you click on cover image or the issue number details (that bar) it'll open a new page that will/does contain a larger cover shot & more infomation like a complete run down of what happens in the stories in that issue.. Yes, they are spoilers so if you haven't read them and want to without knowing what's going on, don't read them ^_^ I plan to get them up on every issue So it's easy to know what happened and when. Also, i've added turning 'first apperance' text into links to that characters Profile. I need to add more tags like a list of which characters are in that story but that'll have to wait.
EDIT: Two small things added to the Merchandise section too.
Well.. Some more Cover/Posters up today.. All STC... Lets see now.. Unknown artist cover for #2, Nigel Kitchings Cover for #49, a Poster from Poster Mag 3 by Ferran Rodriquez (which was later used for issue 156s cover) and Richard Elson's Cover for #173. I'm working on more and hope to have some good stuff within a couple of weeks really. but i can't comfirm that
Nothing much right now apart from two new images in the Posters & Covers section of the Gallery. One is Carl Flint's Cover to issue 52 and the other is a promo poster done by Roberto Corona from issue 47.
Edit: Oh, changed my mind.. One more.. i was debating this cause it's not the full image but oh well. It was the Cover of Poster Mag issue 6 by Mike Hadly and Gina Hart. It was also used as a 'Guess the Artist' contest in STC issue 72.. It seams you had to just guess the drawn art, cause no points seam to have been there for getting Gina Hart's colouring.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3D Chess It turned up today.. I would have some photos but the camara is playing up on me and doesn't want to focus on anything but the background, and when i use a plain background, it just doesn't want to focus.. oh well.. I'll try to get some soon. But the good news is the set is at last out!
