Patrick "Spaz" Spaziante is a highly-regarded comic book artist who is a regular contributor to the Archie Sonic publications. His first Sonic work was the interior art for the story "The Mirror Zone" in the Sonic In Your Face special.
Spaziante is the longest running artist for the series, as well as one of the most prolific. His contributions have been mostly cover art, although he has occasionally done interior art (mostly in the earlier days of the series). Spaz's work has been praised by fans, particularly for how detailed his work tends to be.
