    AGAIN TRY Oldbie
    Hey guys, Trunks here. I'm an oldbie. Been around here for a long time, but I never do much to cause a stir. A lot of you know me, some of you know me well, and some of those people know that I have a little bit of an actual sonic-related job. Been doing it since #199 regularly, though we started at #195. I won't go into it too much, but the job isn't a credited one, but I'm kinda sub-contracted regularly to do the flats for the end colorist. Because of this, I don't get credit, and I don't know if anyone much higher up than the guy I work for even knows I do anything.

    Well, I want a little credit, so that's why I'm telling you guys this. Just a little nod that, "Hey, he's part of the creative process, even if his name isn't in the book."

    A lot of people won't believe me, and that's fine, but in Sonic #199, Matt Herms kept in a little easter egg that I tossed in. It's very subtle, but I'm pointing it out. If nothing else, there's my name in the history pages, literally.

    So really, this isn't me bragging, it's not looking for pity, just a little recognition. It's not a glamorous job, it's not a well paying one, and for the most part, it's not an easy one.

    If the mods feel this is a waste of space, feel free to tear 'er down, I'll just add it to my wiki.

    being an asshole =P
    Actually no wonder that he didn't remove the easter egg - the lighting effect of the screen glass hides the name :/

    I was wondering if it was the same guy for the longest time.



    And that's pretty cool. I personally don't read the comics, but nevertheless.

    I should note that while I have no problem with this topic, I'd appreciate if the responses were a bit more developed than "Cool!" like the gigantic string of one-word replies above me just were.

    That said, I agree—this is pretty nifty! I always find it neat when comic artists throw in subtle little easter eggs to identify their work, and this is no exception. Out of curiosity, though, is this the only easter egg you've ever put in, or was there ever anything else you've managed to squeeze in there? I'm not totally adverse to a minor reference to Sonic Retro, you know. ;)

    It's the only one I ever stuck in, other than drawing something in the margin once for Matt, which thankfully, he erased. I tend not to do anything of the sort, because if he doesn't want it in there, he has to waste time taking it out.

    The monitor on the left is a picture of my facebook.

    Very nice! I guess none of us would have noticed; I had to scroll back up when you said your Facebook was on there.
