As opposed to the NME's idea of cool; if their writers got to do a strip for STC, Sonic would be a rude crack fiend who dated models, claimed he was better than Brian Wilson and wore nothing but skinny ties and leather trousers while playing garage rock.
Chuck Norris invented foxes.
My pubes are longer than the hair on my head. One day I shall weave the two together and strum it like a harp.

Ecco was a bit meh. To hell with dolphins, give me baseball-playing mutants, ninjas, Kid Chameleon, and 1920s catburglars duelling with Russian acrobats.
Yeh, a bit but I liked the art...being obsessed with dolphins at the time....yknow...err..so yeh Mutant League! That kicked buckets of ass, did it not?! The problem with Ecco was there wasnt enough action, really. I did like the scenes on the Vortex world, what the aliens said was quite amusing!
I'm somewhat shocked! I've never met anyone who didn't like Decap Attack before. I must admit, when Nigel Kitching started sharing the writing duties (can't remember who with) it did drop in quality a bit, and I hated Mick McMahon's artwork, but the first ever Decap strip was mind-blowingly hilarious, all that deliberate cheesy humour made it even funnier.
Gotta admit though, I could never get into Mutant League myself.
lol, I didnt see anyone use that avatar till AFTER id chosen it - has been changed now cos I hate looking the same anyway (bah it was the best shot of Mighty as well)
Yeh the first and second Decap Attacks were amazing, but then it was just more of a "fill the comic space" thing to me, where we could have had more shinobi, golden axe, kid chameleon, streets of rage, rocket knight adventures (bah sparkster was the SEQUEL dammit) or hell, more of anything really (who wouldn't enjoy even more sonic per comic? as per its name se?
Mutant League wasnt to bad, but again, another 1 read wonder, as was Eternal Champions, that seemed a bit too "thrown together at last minute" in places, but the detail of the artwork in both of those was astounding (especially on the backgrounds etc)
kaweahoaks.com/html/opossum.htm There's photos and info about opossums there, horrible looking things yet Sparkster was so cute. Daaw. I've still got both the games on the Megadrive too, RKA beats Sparkster hands down. Back on topic...I wasn't keen on that one where Sonic was a human pretty much because of the way the artist had drawn him. I remember not liking a few strips because of the art o__0
