Sonic the Hedgehog 230 cover by BenBates Sonic the Hedgehog 230 cover by BenBates
Cover for Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog issue 230.

Tons and tons of fun to draw, I think this might be my favorite cover I've done so far. I also did the pencils for this is and man of man are there lots of great things that happen.

The issue itself should be coming out in a few weeks I think. Finally, all questions will be answered.

A little behind the scenes note-
While working I'll have all kinds of things playing to keep me entertained and some illustrations remind me of exactly what I was listening to when I drew them. This cover for example will now permanently connect to a Radiolab segment about 'War of the Worlds' and the impact it had when broadcast over radio.

Wait, wha? This got made into a poster?! I had no idea. Usually Archie sends me a box of the stuff they print, but I didn't receive any copies of this one! I can't believe I missed the chance for posters of my covers!

Well, I'm glad you've got it and sporting it on your wall!

 Know right?! The Sonic Supah Special issue 5 was awesome, I had to pull this one out cause this story was so GOOD!! I even have Sonic Genisis in Hardcover from a comic book shop for only 18.99 while Archie was for, like, what? $20-5 in the subscription? It was totally worth it, dude! >~<  Animated Love Monkey :moneyshower:  The buy of the book+SSSPECIAL! Way past coolios! ^*^
