Sonic Universe 41 'sketch' variant by BenBates Sonic Universe 41 'sketch' variant by BenBates
I just received a commission to draw Lupe the wolf from Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comics, and it reminded me of this variant I drew back in 2012. I'm way behind the times. 

It was supposed to be a sketch but I guess I didn't fully understand that at the time... 

I had a lot of fun drawing all the little characters and recall this cover fondly.

I LOVED the secret freedom fighters! It was one of my favourite things in the whole Archie Sonic series before the reboot. While the reboot's ok, I definitely miss these guys.

Your depiction of pretty much the entire sideteam is my favourite in the comics' history. Great stuff.

Man this cover reminds me and makes me hope that shard is not gone for good.
Even though he was not one of Paz's characters SEGA said only 1 metal sonic in the universe (excluding captain metal) so maybe he will be a mecha sonic in the reboot hopefully.

Or Maybe before the universe reset nicole had to "absorb" shard's data from his core to save him and he is now part of nicole or just a digital program to help sonic out. That is what I hope for anyway, Man shard the metal sonic is my favorite character and was the reason that I really got into the comics in great depth for once! :D :)

Shard is THE BEST. He better still exist in some form or another or I'm eventually gonna cry!

Thanks, I appreciate that. I'm not leaving comics entirely though, I'll be starting my own comic soon and I hope to do the occasional cover for Sonic and Mega Man.

This was an awesome cover!
