While I was packaging my collection of Sonic Universe comics the other night I decided to grab my camera and record this.





Enjoy! Much love to Archie Publications and the friends and fans who want to see this series grow and prosper!



:star: Poor Shard...! :star:


... He only wants attention!





And why shouldn't he deserve it? He is after all one kick-ass Metal Sonic, he's becoming a favourite of mine and I wouldn't really consider him a complete replica of Metal Sonic, but a welcoming addition to the Sonic Archie series cast with a unique personality and he's a walking, talking and egg-bot-busting robot (well... He does borrow some of Sonic the Hedgehog's ego and that 'attitude'... *SHARD: "Hey! What attitude?!"*).


A-hem, anyway what this is really about is:

My latest announcement on the SONIC UNIVERSE SCENE SELECTS project - :star: 'Silver's Destiny Begins!' :star:









I'm going to let the video do all the talking - it's going to feature Larry Lynx, Silver the Hedgehog and Shard as additional commentary after the announcement, they love it when they got some stuff to say to the fans about their adventures in the comic series! Enjoy and see you all for the official premiere of 'Silver's Destiny Begins' on Sunday, 29th OCTOBER 2012!

And that's why I've not stopped collecting these comics since 1993. Where as other comics have gone under or rebooted to stupidity, this comic has grown, developed and continued on course to the excellence we enjoy today. Yeah, it's a kids comic, but in a way, it isn't because the characters have aged and grown with us. A+ to Archie for pulling this off. =D

WOW!!! Just watched the video just a few minutes ago. & my, a long explanation of retrospect in the dark morning hour!!

That's totally amazing on how much of the Sonic Comics you have collected!!

I did not know that the Sonic Universe Comics started since 2009/ 3 years ago.

It's hard to believe that the Sonic Archie comics actually have came a long way up to today's present time.

For me, there was a a lot of events that I have missed out of & also a new kind of experience for about a year now, but yet it's now too late for me to catch up with the upcoming exciting events.
At this point on, the "Secret Freedom Fighters" Arc was one of my personal fav.s & the 1st Sonic Universe Arc that I have collected all 4 parts.

Somehow, I was not really involved with the Sonic Comics in the past, but now with the Sonic Comic Dramas (esp. Scourge Lockdown[my personal fav.]), I have now become even more enthralled with the series and even wondering on what happens next & how each of the the Sonic characters relate/connect to one another. I have only wished that I could have known about the comics series years back.

& I personally want to greatly thank you for sharing your thoughtful point of views that easily caught my attention.

PS, good luck on the Sonic Comic Drama "Silver's Destiny Begins"!!!

& I continue on looking forward on what Sonic Archie Comics has to offer to the world.

Nothing like a Psychic/Heavy Metal Smackdown to get the Fighter's Spirit rising.
Looking forward to this Drama Reading as it features a lot more action this time around!

ooo interesting new character. I need to read up on him then since I enjoy reading on some of Archie's ideas, just wished they sold the comics where I live but also doesn't help I rarely have money to spare XD

Yay! Thanks for the update! I'm waiting in anticipation for the next comic drama. It's gonna be epic. :iconheroposeplz:


Aaaaaaaand it looks like I'm in the same boat as you in terms of making a costume. When I was making my Silver the Hedgehog costume I originally intended to just attach spikes to the back of a hoodie, but I made the spikes too big. :ohnoes: And now the head part of my costume is big enough to be like a mascot suit!

I did feel pretty bad for Shard at the end of Secret Freedom... although I can't help but wonder what would happen if he and Sonic (and Tails) ever crossed paths again...

Larry's a kick-ass addition to the Secret Freedom Fighters - you gotta love his jinxing powers - it's unpredictable which makes it exciting!

He used to be former leader to the Substitute Freedom Fighters. For more info on Larry check out the following link: [link]

Will you be putting him in a future fandub?

I enjoyed watching the audio preview, especially the last part of the video. XD

Since "Silver's Destiny Begins" premieres on Sunday, 28th October 2012, it will probably be Saturday, 29th October 2012 for my area due to time distance.

Although I did not subscribe to the Sonic Archie Comics (yet), I have an alternative method of purchasing the current comic(s) at a local book store every 2-4 weeks (depends by issue).

& I totally agree with Shard & Larry that the Secret should make more appearances in the future comics/series, especially after reading the "Secret Freedom Fighters Arc".

Can't wait in two weeks & best of luck!!

PS, here's a little shout out to Larry & Shard:

To Larry (Joker): Keep Up with the "Bad Luck", & I'm sure the bad guys will get unlucky. HAHA nice "Be Square" finger pose BTW.

To Shard (Jack): Can't wait for more butt-kicking action to come. & don't worry Shard, you will get your chance to say the last lines. Like Darkspeeds said, you do have (some of) Sonic's ego & his 'attitude',
and I can't explain or even guess on what the 'attitude' meant, but you will find out some how.

:icondarkspeeds:
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes indeed it will be... Er what? Shouldn't it be 27th October if it's a Saturday? XD

Yeah dude, subscribing via your local book store is a great start - it's cheaper sometimes since they can pass on to you at a lower retail price (since they usually order bulk, depending on the demand from that store) - and they can offer discounts too to the loyal subscriber!

Still the great thing about that deal on the actual comic book itself - it's free shipping plus you save more than 50% off the cover price. Like I said man you guys are really lucky...

Ha ha! Larry and Shard passes on their regards to your comments!

Larry (aka Joker): "Thanks buddy!"
Shard (aka Jack): "Yeah! See you on the flip-side!"

Alrighty then! It's time for bed! I got work in 5 hours. X_X;; XXD

When they gain a conscience and a free will like Shard did then yes. And when magic items like his power core are involved. Of course Omega seems to have feelings. Most of them just involve destruction xD But yeah I love Shard. I hope he appears more. Sucks that al the SFF were on the cover of 241 but none of them were in it.

Aww what a shame! I thought they would at least had one page camero or something! X_X; Well the cover will suffice for now!

I think StH #241 has one of the best covers ever in the series - I would LOVE to have a poster of that right here in my home studios!

Oh come on xD as if saying something about Geoffery after what happened in SU44 is really a spoiler :) It's a good issue despite the lack of the SFF. And you're right about the cover. I totally wish I had that and the Sonic Encyclopedia covers as posters.

I may not know much about Shard, but from what I saw in the video it does have me interested to see more. ^^ I'll try and catch the video when it comes out and see all the progress you made on it.

Also the video was pretty funny~ XD Still as silly and dorky as ever. And seeing the photos of the work you made on your cosplay is pretty good. Definetly have a long way to go but you're making steady progress ^^

I think I'm going to hold back on the Silver cosplay for the time being - this video is priority! I think I'm going to be making one SONIC UNIVERSE SCENE SELECT every once a month from now on to keep me busy! Treasure Team Tango needs a revisit! ;)

Hope your pets are in good order - you've got so many to look after!!

The animals are doing alright, but I'm heading home for a few days or a week. But I'll be back to looking after them for the remainder of October, maybe into November.
