Sonic Universe 81 Cover by herms85
Sonic Universe 81 Cover
Raw art to the cover of Sonic Universe #81, drawn by Yardley. I believe this is the first time everyone gets to see the new character, Gold, too! Hope you guys dig!

Archie 01 - Meet the New Betty (colorist sample) by herms85
Archie 01 - Meet the New Betty (colorist sample)
Guys! The new Archie reboot is on sale at your local comic store now! (And it's really good! You guys should give it a chance!)

I didn't work on it! ...But, I was asked to try out for it. Really proud of the pages - tried to be respectful of the original material (you'll find all the skin tones, hair colors, etc are all on model with the original Archie books), while incorporating the new style with some slightly more complex shadows and textures. Since these went un-used, I figured I'd use 'em as portfolio pieces. Thanks for checking them out!

Script: Mark Waid
Art: Fiona Staples
Colors: herms85
Lettering: Jack Morelli

Worlds Unite - Sonic Battles by herms85
Worlds Unite - Sonic Battles
I wasn't originally a part of this project, but things got down to the wire and I was asked to fill in on colors for this story illustrated by Sonic artist extraordinaire Yardley. I am always crazy happy to color for Tracy, and I had an absolute blast coloring this story. It's available ONLY in comic book stores on July 15! Be sure to pick it up!

You can get a full preview of the book at: www.comicbookresources.com/com…

Sonic Boom 5-8 Off Panels by herms85
Sonic Boom 5-8 Off Panels
So these are a little different. I don't usually work on the Off Panels, but I got to color the strip for Sonic Boom from issue 01 to 08, and I also got to do a recent stint of Sonic Universe strips. They're super fun and I'd love to color more of 'em sometime. I believe these strips ran from Sonic Boom issue 5 to issue 8, the first part of the Worlds Unite crossover.

So-o-o-o, you'll probably notice Comedy Chimp is miscolored. I believe this issue was the first he appeared in the comics? I hadn't watched a lot of the cartoon yet, so I was totally unfamiliar with him! I believe all of that got fixed in the printed issue.

Thanks again to the guys at Find the Computer Room for having me on!

I am also slowly but surely typing out answers to whatever questions were asked that we didn't get to on the show. So no worries!

Hi there! I don't know if you use this account to talk with your fans or if you're even allowed to speak on this stuff but I was wondering if you were going to continue working with Archie on the Sonic titles? You were a literally God send along with Tracey Yardley! and Ian Flynn and I really am missing your work during the cross over.

I will be back! Due to the crossover schedule there have been a couple months here with no books I've colored...

BUT, I colored all of Act 3 of the Worlds Unite crossover (parts 9-12), and I will be back to finish coloring Sonic Boom and Mega Man before those books conclude... And I'll still be on Sonic Universe, too, after the crossover!
