RIP - Jon D'Agostino
printable version
I've been thinking of doing these when someone connected to Sonic dies and now is as good a time as any to start.

Jon D'Agostino has died the morning of the 29th November 2010. Born in Italy in 1929 (So he was 81 when he died) he moved to america when a kid and attended the Industrial School of Art in LA. He started in Comics as a Colourist for Timely comics, who became Atlas Comics, who became Marvel Comics. He became the head of the Colouring department for a few years. In the 50s and 60s, he did alot of pencieling and inking work for Charlton Comics and since then, mostly for Archie comics. He did a brief tim on Marvel Comics throughout this time as letterer & Inker.

By the 1990s, he was pretty much only inking for Archie Comics, where, among other titles, he did Sonic the Hedgehog. Sadly, TESP search engine has a little trouble with his name (i'll work on fixing it) but he started Inking Sonic the Hedgehog with Issue 2 of the Regular Series and went up to Issue 38 as well as Inking the Covers for the Princess Sally Mini-Series and doing cover inking for 'In your face!', Story 'Fire Drill' inking for 'Sonic And Knuckles', Story 'First Contact' inking for 'Triple Trouble' & Story 'The Hunt is on' for 'Knuckles Chaotix'.

He went under a number of names as 'Johnny Dee', 'John D'Agostino' (His real Name) & 'Matt Bakerino'. Not to be confused with (though often is) 'Tony D'Agostino' (Aka 'Tony Dagos', or just 'D'Agostino'), 'John Duffi' or 'John Duffy'.

Sometimes.. I think i really go to too much trouble for what it's worth..

Yet Another small one?
printable version
Another Small update but fairly important..

While it has been a couple of years, I have finally gotten copies of the 2 Sonic Underground CDs (Only available with the US NTSC DVD releases.. 2007's Volume 1 had the first disc of 8 tracks, Volume 2 in 2008 had another 8) So i have updated a couple of lyrics & Track names.. I'll deal with the Mp3s in the downloads section later BUT i will NOT release the tracks from these discs.. Sorry, it's a US disc, so anyone in the UK will have to import, but they are pretty new and in print. So it isn't a Grey area or a public domain or anything It's just Plain Illegal! I don't care if you have seen the stuff on Youtube, just cause them prats get away with too much illegal stuff and claim 'They can't patrol everything is besides the point.

You have the option of listening to the Episode Rips i provide, or buying the DVDs.. They aren't bad prices at times.

Anyway.. More information on them should be up on the site soon.

Bigger Update
printable version
Okay, a much bigger update now which is, in fact, two great updates ^_^ The less important but great update is the overhaul of the Books section, into the same style as the Games, which just makes things easier on my part, and a bit better looking on your part..

The MORE important and better update is in the Interviews section. I have conducted a short interview with STC Artist & Colourist Nigel Dobbyn and that is now up! I hope you enjoy it, he is a very talented artist.

Enjoy!
