    This looks incredible, and was certainly unexpected. I look forward to the contents, and the comic's release. Very nice artwork on the cover, there.

    While I'm here though, I'm just going to voice my annoyance at the current situation with Archie's recent issues over the last few months. We're still waiting for Sonic the Hedgehog #279, which was supposed to be released back in November. The same issue affected Sonic Universe #81, although that was finally released 8 weeks late recently, so we've at least got it. What's worse, the variant cover for Sonic the Hedgehog #281 (2 issues later than the one we're still waiting on) was already revealed months ago to be Valentines Day themed, so I don't know what's going to happen with that, either. It just strikes me as odd that Archie are happily promoting new, upcoming work, but can't seem to keep together their regular issues. If they're under strain, then surely announcing/confirming new material is a bad idea. I don't understand it. I just wish they'd at least confirm that this issue delay is being looked into, or something.

    Working on my art!
    Seriously though that's the perfect box art for a sonic 4.

    I kinda want a US ass face variant now >>

    That looks awesome! I love how it's styled after the Japanese Mega Drive game box art.

    I'm probably going to buy all the variant covers to this, even the crappy ones. I just love this so much. This was not something I was expecting.

    Speaking of long waits for comics, Sonic #279 finally has an in-store release date.

    https://twitter.com/ArchieComics/status/702662309156532224

    ...And it's still four weeks away. Less for subscribers, but still, really?

    I've been behind on my comics since March of 2015, so I hadn't noticed that I haven't gotten a Sonic comic since November, since I just looked up when 278 was released. Has the Archie franchise reboot really fucked Archie Comics up that much? I know it caused Mega Man to be put on hiatus, which basically means cancelled, but this is pretty ridiculous.

    Yeah, we've been hit with pretty consistent delays with no explanation for a while now. Even Jughead saw a delay recently. Couple that with the trade situation that is still ongoing (with no explanation either), and I would've assumed the books were on the chopping board had it not been for this Megadrive announcement. If they'd just say they're having printing issues I'd be much more understanding, but it's the complete lack of communication to consumers that gets to me. I'm a trade paperback-only kinda guy, but after a year with no new ones I was about to subscribe for the monthly issues just to break the dry spell. Now I'd just feel like I'm throwing my money into the wind.

    Totally pumped for this one-off, though. I'll just try to keep my hype level low in case it gets delayed a few months back like everything else.
