Agreed. Probably the best of the lot. Based on the page layout of
Sonic #25 it's easy to see why he's not used more often: his style is
too unconventional when compared with other comic artists (which is
probably what I like about it). His Sally is, indeed, the sexiest.
> Mawhinney: Very nice style: 'toon, but not childish. Very consistent, too.
> He makes the characters look the same no matter what the angle or position.
Best "conventional" artist, strong on keeping characters on-model.
> Manak: Boy, Mawhinney and Spaziante are the best for this comic!
The veteran of the series. Unfortunately, his style is too "cartooney"
by comparison. Suited to Gallagher's jokey scripts.
> Penders: Not too bad, but I think he kinda ruined Geoffrey St. John.
So far, this writer-turned-artist has only drawn the Sonic characters
once (#31), having had more experience with the Chaotix cast. Still
willing to reserve judgment.

Exactly; whatever its technical merits, it's just wrong for these
