Evans has also provided color work for “Sonic Universe” No. 53, featuring a crossover between two top video game characters, Mega Man and Sonic.

“It's been really exciting getting to color the characters that I grew up playing on video games,” Evans said. “Between work on Sonic Universe and Sesame Street, I'm getting to work on 2 childhood favorites of mine.”

The creator-owned property “Hooligan,” written by Mike Hall and drawn by Evans, is still in the works.

“I am finishing the artwork for issue No. 3 of Hooligan, the original creator-owned property that Mike Hall and I published with Viper Comics last year,” he said. “We have since decided to collect all 3 issues and release them as one cohesive graphic novel. We will either self-publish Hooligan or seek distribution through a new publisher.”

Meanwhile, Evans is working as a writer-artist on a new series of graphic novels for children.

“My first series of children's comic books were released from Magic Wagon, a division of ABDO,” Evans said. “I wrote and illustrated the ‘Mystical Pencil' series. They're a lot of fun, complete with dinosaurs and robots!”
