The infamous Pink Sweater finally debuts!

October 30th, 2010 by

Latest page here.

Well, after having that dang pink sweater on the cover of the first issue, I finally managed to get it into the book!! Too bad it’s on a page with more melodrama than humor.

The main reason I did Knuckles speech here is that I always wondered why he still had contempt for Sonic even though he found out Dr. Eggman duped him several times and Sonic was always trying to befriend him. Envy was the best reason I could think of. Sonic has buddy’s surrounding him that he pushes away so he can run off on his own while Knuckles has no one and lives a lonely life of solitude. He’s gonna have some character exploration in issue 3.

As far as “Aunt Nilly” goes, I always though of Amy as kind of a foster sister to Cream and part of their family ever since they were begging her to stay with them at the end of season 2. Looks like Ian feels the same way if the current STH comics are anything to go by. Besides, Vanilla needs to fill a role in the Sonicdom, and I figure her as a mother hen to the group fits best.

Special thanks to Jet and Q for this page.


Finally! A new page!

October 24th, 2010 by

Sorry it’s been awhile. Kichi hasn’t had time to work on pages yet so Jet’s taking up the slack. He’s already got another page for next week. Just wait till you see the speech Knux will have for Sonic. Thanks again to Q for the letters.

Here’s this weeks new page. What is Cream working on? You’ll have to wait and see.

And yes, Sonic is playing Secret Rings.


We’re back!! With 100% Less Chest Hair!!

October 9th, 2010 by

Sorry for the break after the Summer of Yardley there, but we’re catching up on a lot of art and Kichi has a lot of college work so you might not see her art as much after all. Or working dynamo, Jet is handling art duties in the meantime.

Here’s “Page 16: “Lollipop Injury”

Well, I had to find some reason to get that pink sweater on him soon. This is as good a reason as any. It’s gonna be awhile before Knuckles can live down that embarrassing moment from the last page.


Final Yardley!! Knuckles does it again!

September 18th, 2010 by

The final page of Tracy Yardley’s contribution to Sonic Eggs has arrived. I hate to see it go. It’s been a blast. But at least we go out with what’s probably the funniest page yet!!

Click here for some funny Knux/Shadow fanservice. XD

Oh that Knux. So easily fooled. This is gonna haunt him.

Big thanks to Tracy Yardley, Jamie and Q for their contribution.

But don’t go away now!! Cuz the funniest stuff in this issue hasn’t even begun!! Stay tuned for “Eggtube” Eggman has some embarrassing videos of Sonic and crew to share with the world. How will Sonic counteract it? Keep watching!

Also, check back this weekend for a contest announcement. Win some of Tracy Yardley’s original art pages!! Details very soon.

Only one more Tracy Yardley page to go after this!!

I can’t believe it’s almost over. It’s been so much fun posting these pages and seeing your reactions. (On TSS and Bumbleking anyway. Seriously, no one uses this site.)

You can find the latest page here!!

I love dissing Chris whenever I can.

Q is doing letters as always, but this time we got our latest talent Jamie on the colors! She auditioned about three weeks ago, and her audition post was so good, we picked her up immediately. Jamie will be coloring page 15 as well. Sorry Ben Hunzeker fans. I just can’t afford it.

I’d tell you to jump to our forum to leave a comment. But I know you won’t. “SIGH!”

Is the guilt trip working?

Another Hunzeker/Yardley page!!

Originally, me and Nuckles87 were gonna go halfsies on one page to commission Tracy Yardley to do. When deciding what page that would be, THIS was the page we had in mind. I mean, C’mon! How could I not resist that page!!

Page can be found here.

Thanks again to Tracy Yardley, Ben Hunzeker and Q for all of their support.

If you think this is the funniest page? Wait until you see #15!


Summer of Yardley Part 3: Rejected!

August 28th, 2010 by

Another week, another new page by Tracy Yardley and our fantastic colorist, Kichi!! Letters as always by Q.

Read the newest page here!!

Looks like Cream has a new bestest pal and poor Cheese is left out to pasture. (Cuz, y’know…cheese is a dairy product.) How will he react to this kind of rejection? You’ll have to keep reading.

While you’re here, check out ECC’s other comics and join our forums. Do it!! I command you!!!

…….Please?

And the Summer of Yardley! rolls on!!

No, you’re not looking at Hunzeker’s colors here. You are looking at the very talented coloring of our own Kichigai!! If you think she’s great on colors, check out some of her artwork on the very early pages of this issue. She’ll be taking over the rest of the book after Yardley’s run is done.

Speaking of, you may notice this page is longer than the others. Thanks to my over-use of dialogue, Yardley! had to make this one page on two comic pages. I apologize for that. I’m an amateur writer myself, so I gotta work on my scripting better.

Also, thanks to Q for doing a great job on the letters.

You can find the latest page here.

As you can see from my interview last week, a bit more of Vanilla’s darker personality is coming out. Quite a few chuckles on this page, but the best is yet come. ;)


YARDLEY!! HUNZEKER!! BERRY!! ……….and Q I guess.

August 15th, 2010 by

The summer of Yardley starts here!!

Yes!! The first of 6 pages drawn by Archie Sonic talent, Tracy Yardley starts now. This one and upcoming page 13 colored by Sonic cover artist Ben Hunzeker!! Written of course, by yours truly and letters done by Q.
ACCKK! What scum am I!! I almost forgot to thank our coloring gal Deebs for providing Hunzeker with the flats.

Okay, this first one isn’t hilarious or anything. It’s more of a plot point comic driving the point of Shades new popularity in the home. Is Sonic playing second fiddle now?

Find out here!!

BTW, No Tails isn’t jealous. He’s just sick of Amy mentioning Shades.

Discuss this comic in our forums here.


Sonic Eggs Character Profile: Vanilla (Cream’s Mom)

August 15th, 2010 by

Sorry folks!! The first Yardley page will be up as soon as Ben Hunzeker sends me the colors. In the meantime, enjoy this little character study. I put some upcoming Yardley art in it!

Vanilla

If there’s one character who’s barely been touched upon in the Sega Sonic/Sonic X cannon, it’s Creams mom.

There is barely any info on her character. It wasn’t until her first appearance in Sonic X that we even knew of her name. The only new info now is that her name is Vanilla (a food pun just like her daughter and pet Chao) and she’s 28 years old. That’s pretty much it. As a fanwriter, I like that! It gives me plenty of room to build upon her character and interpret what she’s really like.

So, what is she really like? Why don’t we ask her herself?! Today, I decided to interview Vanilla to get more insight into her.

S.E. – Thank you Vanilla for taking some time off to talk to us.

Vanilla – You’re welcome but please, call me Miss Filling. We are not familiar enough for a first name basis.

S.E. – Oh! Is that your last name?

Vanilla – Yes. It was my late husbands last name. Bless his soul. Also, please sit up. You’re slouching.

S.E. – Oh. Erm…sorry. So, your a widow?

Vanilla – Correct. My poor, poor Tapioca.

S.E. – I’m sorry I brought that up. What was your maiden name?

Vanilla – Pudding.

S.E. – Ha-ha!! Well, that expl-

Vanilla – Excuse me sir, but what is so funny?!

S.E. – Well, it’s your family names. Vanilla Filling. Cream Filling. Cheese Filling. Even Cream Cheese Filling. It’s all food puns!

Vanilla – My word! I never thought of that!! You think I would have. Food puns hmmm? I guess that would explain why Vector drools whenever he sees me. We are on opposite ends of the food chain.

S.E. – Speaking of, there seems to be an attraction between you two.

Vanilla – Listen my good sir! I’ll have you know we are just friends. I’ll give him and Espio some baked food once and awhile and hire him as an escort, but that’s it!

S.E. – Oh. Well, sorry I didn’t mean to off-

Vanilla – I mean he’s a very nice person who tries hard to do good, but he’s poor, a slob and has very lousy manners.

S.E. – Wel,, I-

Vanilla – I mean sure, he’s very sensitive. He’s got a nice smile. Very broad shoulders.

S.E. – Miss Filli-

Vanilla – And that smooth reptilian skin you can just glide your fingers acr-

S.E. – AHEM!! Miss Filling?

Vanilla – Oh!! Sorry.

S.E. – That’s fine. I noticed you and your daughter seem very mannerly. Is manners very important to you?

Vanilla – They are of the utmost importance!! Without manners our culture might as well be in the stone age! It’s a good thing I came along to the Thorndykes residence when I did. They were very uncouth.

S.E. – How so?

Vanilla – Did you know they used a soup spoon for scooping cereal?!! It was like the dark ages!

S.E. – Did you have any conflicts among the staff?

Vanilla – Oh no. We have gotten along very well. Except…

S.E. – “Except?”

Vanilla – Please do not interrupt sir! It’s rude. I meant Except Ella. She does not like me much.

S.E. – And why is that?

Vanilla – Jealousy. She felt I had taken over her kitchen. I was just helping her become a better cook. I’d constantly look over her shoulder and tell her what she was doing wrong. She was not very appreciative, but it’s not my fault if she’s a poor cook.

S.E. – Well, having someone loom over your shoulder can be very annoying.

Vanilla – Well, it’s not just that. When I was gone, she became a den mother to my daughter and her friends. Back home, that tends to be my role.

S.E. – Back on your planet?

Vanilla – Yes. Amy and Tails will often call me “Aunt Nilly”. Whenever they come over, I’ll always cook for them. Amy comes around often. She’s been a wonderful big sister to Cream.

S.E. – Speaking of Cream. You seem to have raised her very well. She’s very mannerly.

Vanilla – Thank you. It was hard to raise her alone.

S.E. – Did you ever have to be tough with her?

Vanilla – My word no!! It’s not like back in my childhood. If I got out of line, my mother would use a large paddle on me. I would never do that with my child.

S.E. – That’s good to hear.

Vanilla – I use a ruler. It helps hide the welts.

S.E. – Eeesh!! Remind me not to anger you.

Vanilla – It would be wise.

Look of death

S.E. – What are your biggest pet peeves?

Vanilla – People who openly belch. Also leaning on a chair and people who put their elbows or worse, their feet upon a table. I will not stand for that.

S.E. – Well, thank you for your time. It was nice to finally get some insight on y-

Cream – Mama!! Mama!! I’m back!

Vector – Whoops!! Sorry for intrudin’ dere. Me and Espio just got back from taking Charmy and her to the fair.

Cream – I got to eat cotton candy, and see some rabbits that can’t talk back for some reason, and Charmy taught me something cool!!

Vanilla – Oh?

Cream – Yea!! I can make farting noises with my armpits!! Watch!! FERTFERTFERTFERT!!

Vanilla – CHAARRRRRRMMMMMYYYY!!!

Charmy – Uh-Oh. I’m outta here!

Vanilla – Come back here you bratty little bee!! I’ve got 12 inches of flat wood with your name on it!!

Vector – Wait!! Let me help you!!

Vanilla – Fine!! You hold him down, I’ll use the ruler!

Vector – “SNIFF!” I love when we can do things together.
