Fifteen years ago today I debuted as the new lead writer for the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. It was a book I grew up reading as a kid, and I’ve since met numerous kids (and young adults) who can say the same of my run. It’s humbling, to be quite frank.
I may not be the main guy behind the wheel anymore, but I’m still involved after five editors, two publishers (and five continuities, give or take). Plus dozens of line artists, colorists and letterers who have brought my stories to life. I’ve been exceedingly fortunate to have so many solid creative teams at my back and I’m thankful for every single one of them.
It’s been a career-defining ride, and as the saying goes, “The Ride Never Ends.” I’m certainly not done with the little blue hedgehog. Not by a long shot. I’ll be talking more about that later one, but for now…#KnowingSmile.
