I got to draw my own cover!! For the behind-the-scenes on illustrating this, be sure to check out my new Patreon: www.patreon.com/user?u=3537523

It was so much fun getting to illustrate a cover - first thing I have officially drawn for the books in over six years! Hope you guys dig it! This variant comes out in January, so be sure to ask your comic book store to order it for you!

Sucks that this comic was never released due to the cancellation of the Archie comics...

So sweet! Kudos on Eggman's fleet in the background which torches Angel Island in the game!

Dude, Just got the word about the cancellation of the book. So sorry to hear that, especially after being able to finally do the cover and inside stuff. I hope they find some way or other to get your work out there for folks to see.

Tis a shame Issue 291 was screwed over, this is a great drawing of a "classic" encounter. Pun entirely intended.

Great stuff man! I even prefer the style of the characters to covers for which you only Coloured.

A very nostalgic piece featuring the classic trio! :D I can almost hear the Angel Island theme music from Sonic 3! Very nicely done. :thumbsup:

This cover illustration you've done for the "Sonic The Hedgehog" comic book looks very nice for sure, and it definitely has a unique style that makes it feel like the classic games. :D

I love your sonic art, and especially reading the comics. Your style is so great and fits the universe so well.
