Sonic Universe 50 Cover by herms85 Sonic Universe 50 Cover by herms85
Raw artwork to Sonic Universe #50's cover, published by Archie Comics.

One of my faves of this last year. Always a pleasure to work with Spaz, this was a pretty quick turnaround we put together in a week. The background colors are actually a nod to a great scene in the Sonic the Hedgehog OAV. Fun stuff!

Artwork: Patrick "Spaz" Spaziante
Colors: *herms85

I LOVE this cover. It's honestly one of my favourite Archie Comics Sonic covers of all time. My first Sonic game was Sonic CD, so I've always liked Metal Sonic, but the detail here - especially Sonic's reflections - and that menacing pose makes Metal look like an enemy to be feared. And rightly so! Absolutely love it. :D

The reflections are absolutely beautiful and the piece has the definite tone that Metal sonic brings to a comic

I am saddened by the pulling of the Underground story, hopefully they'll go back to that at a later date. This still looks fantastic though, and a great nod to the OAV, I used to own it on VHS and picked it up a few years back on DVD. Good stuff! :D

Speaking of Sonic Undergound, Is Ian or anyone else allowed to speak about whats going on with that issue? after all this issue is meant to replace it and all we know so far that its on haitius, but for how long?

I'm just wondering if we should even expect it at this point.

My mind is blown. There is so much for my eyes to explore in this image. The coloring you did is amazing! I always realize just how much color does for a picture when I look at your work. I noticed that the top of the legs change. I'm glad ya'll made that change, it looks like his legs are more moveable now. I can't wait to buy and read the new issues!
