Off Panels: Sonic Universe #33-36 (Babylon Rising) by jongraywb Off Panels: Sonic Universe #33-36 (Babylon Rising) by jongraywb
Masterfully and beautifully colored by the greatest gal pal, Aleah Baker: :iconkureejiilea: Go to her deviantart site and tell her how awesome she is. GO ON. DO IT! HURRY UP!!! :D

The first set of Off Panels I drew for Archie Comic's Sonic Universe. This time for the "Babylon Rising" storyarc starring SEGA's Babylon Rogues. Again, it's interesting seeing the pencils side by side with the finished product. Gary Martin did the inks on this (I didn't start doing my own inks on the strips until much later).

Also, again, for whatever bizarre reasoning the lettering wasn't inked in on these and I remember being really sad about that considering the third one is by far my favorite (and also stands as the most infamous of the bunch). Now you can see what it ORIGINALLY looked like before it wound up being censored to death! (Seriously. If you have the issue go and pull it out. What was printed was actually much different than what's shown here.)

In all seriousness, I really do hate that the lettering was missed on that first panel. I was trying to go for one of those old boxing promotional posters and feel like everything got completely lost in context and the penciled product IMO reads much clearer. Oh well, cest la vie.

Also, I will never apologize for Mama Robotnik in a bikini with a treasure trail. I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE AT ALL--BARF.

Also, also -- Scratch, Grounder and the French Frirus. ;)

If anyone should be in a bikini, it's Wave! B-)

I don't understand why they'd try to hide Mama Robotnik's beautiful hair from us! Thank you for bringing it to light in this post. :D

huh... these ones are rather interesting seeing what was removed from the final product... a shame... most, if not all of the text doesn't seem to come off as offensive... but I guess the sign crossing out "bad stories" might've come off as a jab at the previous Archie staff... and yet "poot" managed to survive? XP

and oh lord, never draw Mama Robotnik in a swimsuit ever again D:

Mama Robotnik is definitely not child friendly material.

Haha these are great. :D I haven't seen these yet, (I don't have those issue) so sadly I don't know the dialogue, but they look cool regardless.

Nice touch with the Mama Robotnik. Nice fan-(dis)service. ;p I'm amazed you got away with that. (Was that your idea, or Ian's idea?) Now I most go poor holy water in my eyeballs.
