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!

Script: ~ianpotto
Pencils ~Yardley
Inks: Jim Amash
Lettering: Jack Morelli
Colors: *herms85

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

Hope you guys enjoy!

Nicole has never really showed ANY interest towards Shard. She only cared for him because he was about to destroyed by Metal Sonic because he was a friend. Shard is supposedly the same original Metal Sonic that tried to kill Sonic and his friends. In a sane mind, this would cause some distrust to him and all the Freedom Fighters, including Nicole. Even when he said he went clean he would still be distrusted. I would only call these two a lovely couple, IF these two had any romantic or tenderness moments together, like REAL kissing and  hugging, but I never saw anything of that, sorry. It's too much of a lame clone pairing of Sonally anyway. And you Herms, failed to see how bad the writing is because of Flynn.

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.

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. :)

Shard still exists in the new universe, right? Because he was probably my favorite side character out of them all. (Not hindered by the fact that ever since I read his original demise when I was a kid, I'd always dreamed he'd come back as a good guy.)

Since the backstory has been retconned to be more like the games, does he still exist?

IF Shard got his comic series right next to Sonic's I'd actually buy it instead of looking at it when the clerk has his back turned.

It's a sweet setup for the one female character who never seems to have any love in her life. The question is whether or not the relationship will continue now that reality has been rewritten. Any info on that?

I did enjoy this scene quite a bit, though I have a feeling with the genesis wave it may be mmot as then shard wouldnt have been rebuilt yet, however he may get rebuilt for Countdown to chaos. Admitedly I am also curious on where Mighty, Nack and Ray are going to show up next...

They make an awesome pairing.  For some reason, this pairing reminds me of Sonic's parents...

Anyways, I'm thinking Nicole will make Shard a new body.  Maybe taking his Power Gem and redesigning him through a Virtual Hedgehog. sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Virtual_H…  Any assistance from Uncle Chuck or Rotor (Nicole's "father") would also be nice.

I really liked that issue, and Shard is a surprisingly break out character to me.  When I first heard of the concept of a good guy version of Metal Sonic I thought it sounded a little fan-ficy but he ended up becoming one of my favorites.
