Shard x Nicole (Sonic Universe 50) by herms85 Shard x Nicole (Sonic Universe 50) by herms85
Here we go! Former Metal Sonic Shard and Nicole... So this is a pairing, apparently. And it's adorable! These pages are from early in this extra long issue - nicely setting up some Shard and Nicole friendship - as well as the villainy of Metal Sonic and the total bad-ass-ness of Shard rocketing in to confront his "little brother." Great stuff!

Pages appearing in Sonic Universe #50, published by Archie Comics.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Will Shard be coming back in the comics? Do you know?

Nicole and Shard are just too easy and mundane. A robot and a computer program coming together and bonding over their learning about humanity, particular ly when they wind up mimicking the Sonic/Sally relationship. Tails and Nicole would be the more entertaining coupling I think, precisely because their inexperience would cause them to head down odd roads.

I want Shard to return in the reboot. Even if you change up his color scheme or design, at least keep his personality. Maybe as a renegade prototype of Metal's current personality program.

lol its awesome when one of the artist admit they are a couple that could aspire in the comics :D I wonder what happened to Shard after the battle with Metal Sonic... I hope he's not dead forever D:

previously metal sonic exploded putting antoine in a coma and now he is back to try and kill antoine off but shard comes and confronts him

I've been wondering whether or not this pairing will remain in the comics after the timeline shift. Even artificial beings need a little love, and I would hate to see Nicole remain as the lonely girl in the group if Shard was erased from existence. Say it ain't so, Matt!

Onnnnn another note, I was wondering if you could help me out with something. Recently I've felt confident enough to apply for Archie and I spent ages drawing a bunch of sketches to strengthen my application. I first tried sending it to the marketing department before Evan Stanley suggested the Sonic fan art address instead, but it's been a month and I haven't had so much as an acknowledgement yet. Being an Archie regular, could you please look into it to see that it's been received? My name is Christopher Reavey. I really appreciate it. :)
