What I love about this cover is that trademark style of yours applied to it. It's distinguishable from all the other current artists working on the book which is always refreshing to see. It not only pays tribute to the series, but also to your appreciation for P. Spaz's style back in the hay day.
I also like the the balance of curviness and sharpness in the line quality - it establishes calmness of the sea and clouds (making it an adventure that appears safe and fun with Sonic and gang) and contrasts with the pointy edges of the iceburg (suggests that adventures with those guys can be dangerous too).
All the characters look brilliant with their poses and expressions!
In happy to see you back working on the sonic Archie comics! When I first saw your artwork, (I believe it was in the last issue of the "Tossed in Space" Arc) I found your style of drawing the Sonic characters very unique.
Nice cover! I have a feeling this issue is going to be an interesting one, considering Bean and Marine are both in it. XD (I like Bean's personality a lot).
man, I never took the time to look at all the work put into the background with all the details... this definitely came out awesome :3 I'm so getting the variant cover if I can find a place that has them in stock
