Richard Elson Interviewed


My old pal and fellow comic artist Richard Elson is interviewed over at Sonic the Comic Online. Back in the 1990s I had an enjoyable time as one of the writers on Fleetway's Sonic the Comic and whenever I wrote a script for Richard he never failed to turn in an excellent job. STC (as it became known) had a loyal and vocal fan following and when the comic was canceled some of them decided to continue it with their own online version.

In recent years Richard Elson has been a contributor to both The Beano and 2000AD, proving what a versatile artist he is. You can read the interview with him by following this link.

Wow Lew,

Thanks for that...

Excellent interview from a brilliant artist.

I'll have to email Richard to let him know what a great interview it is.

Best,
Tim...

I remember all them years ago when i was about four/five when i received a issue of Sonic The Comic and the only thing that stands out in my mind from that one issue, was that it was near halloween and that Shinobi had a strip.

As the years got on, i began collecting them on a regular basis, i even remember making sure my mum picked up the copy where Knuckles encountered his own metallix while i was away on holiday.

And only today after much research i found out STC the comic i collected with a passion had cancelled in 2002, i remember everything from certain strips to speedlines to the reviews, heck even to MegaDroid.

Now looking back on them days at 20 years of age, i want to thank all the writers and artists for making one of the all time legends that is Sonic The Comic.
