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!

Great job on the cover Dawn! :+fav:

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).

True Confession: I totally did not get the "Titanic" reference. Maybe I just didn't want to.

But if you were going for a Titanic reference, maybe you could have drawn Bean and Bark in a tender embrace like the film's poster. Of course, that would make the shippers go wild. :D

Still, I'm surprised. I thought you were long since done drawing for the Sonic comic.

Oh, I had one of those thumbnailed for Paul. Remember - I'm not the editor, only the artist. What he says, goes ;)
