The upcoming Freedom Fighters arc features several homage covers, including a few box-art tributes! Can you guys guess what game this cover was inspired by?

This is the second time I've gotten to emulate Uekawa's Sonic Adventure-era coloring style for a cover. It's so much fun! Hope you guys dig it!

Pencils: Jamal Peppers
Inks: Jim Amash
Colors: Matt Herms

For the record, rumor has it the planned Bunnie/Blaze team up story was reworked for IDW Sonic #4 as a story involving Sonic, Blaze, and newcomer Tangle the Lemur.

I can’t believe this one will never be released. I was so looking forward to it too.

They should give a Sonic Channel profile to every Freedom Fighter. I mean, if they can get away with Sticks, why can't they give this girl more love?
