Sonic Art Collection (Page 68-69) by darkspeeds Sonic Art Collection (Page 68-69) by darkspeeds
Last but not least, we got the super awesome Dawn Best (who has contributed her artistic talent to the good folks at Archie Publications in the past) with her thoughts on the subject of 'heroism' in the Sonic Archie comics and how they will bring influence to readers, and perhaps, have them learn a thing or two about life.

I liked how she focused on about family, roots, and believing in yourself - your identity.

What's really cool is the fact that she even did her own drawings for the magazine! I wasn't expecting it but hell yes is it bloody awesome to get some originals like that, I don't take it for granted - so thank you Dawn!

Anyways hope you guys and gals will gain something from each of the writer's (who are just as much of a fan of the Sonic comic series as you are) profound wisdom contained in their write-up. I certainly enjoyed reading them and will take those ideas with me in life. *thumbs up*

That graphic pattern is very singular! :) 
Despite the inclination of the text, everything is still very well readable (never pass the 30-35 degrees, when you tilt a text ;D) and it makes the whole page very dynamic! Well played, doing this sort of things is very easy to make it going wrong... ;)

The echidnas rock. :D Is this gonna be (or is it already) a book out in stores? I'm really interested!

yo man
for me text is too little (maybe if i go full screen it would be ok)
about Knuckles and Shade, I don't know what it is but I think You could do better

No. 1 FAN from POLAND

Love it!!!! I always love Knuckles, but Shade looks awesome in Dawn Best's style! Plus, I never see any artwork of Shade, a true shame. She (and Blaze) are definitely my favorite female Sonic characters, love how well-developed they are.
Anyway, been keeping tabs on your updates and everything is looking great! :D
And this is just plain awesome; definitely adding this to my favorites :D

Thank you very much. Dawn's the winner on this page and rightfully so!

Blaze is one of my favs too, let's see how she pans out in Pirate Plunder Panic! :D

Ah yes that's right! :D I've been enjoying World's Collide so much I forgot about that! And honestly, I used to dislike Mega Man and have no interest in the series at all; but between the cross-over with Sonic (and Smash Bros.), I looked into the games and now am really enjoying MM 2 on my 3DS :)
But I'm really glad for Tracy Yardley that he's doing the writing for Pirate Plunder Panic; I was very impressed at how he handled Babylon Rising, it'll be cool to see him do a more light-hearted story.
I wanted to ask you, did you read the solicitation for Sonic the Hedgehog 253? Do you think the "Sky Patrol" mentioned are actually the characters from Tails Sky Patrol?

Perhaps you're right. = )

I personally would not know but I'd say you're not far from the possibility of a valid answer to that question of yours. ;)

The slanted text is a little hard for me to read. I see that you are following the lines from the artwork, but perhaps just tilt the title and leave the majority of the text level for readability?
