I had to recheck my copy to see what you were talking about - hmm, _I_
hadn't noticed the placement of that panel... :^) But there were a few
full frontal shots later in the issue...

I definitely like his Sally, but it's a toss-up with Art Mawhinney as to
who I like better. However, I think I like Art's Sonic better (and also
Dave Manak's for that matter) - I can't put my finger on what I don't like
about Pat's Sonic - I think it's the way his quills are drawn, or maybe his
eyes, or...

Well, yeah :^) For that matter, I don't think we've seen Art's version
either, except on the splash page to Princess Sally #1.

And to drag this back to the subject, I checked the credits of Doomsday and
Shaw! isn't listed - I know he's done work on Garfield & Friends, but I
don't know what else...
