You’ll notice that the preview above – seen on Bleeding Cool – mentions a Cover A, crafted by Tracy Yardley. The solicitation also mentions a Cover B that will be developed by Dan Schoening. Only one cover art has been provided to the press, so we’re not sure quite which cover this is meant to represent… but it looks incredibly exciting either way!

Check out the proposed cover below – no doubt we will get the final version of this, as well as the other Covers, in due time. For now though, get hype for more Sonic comic adventures!

Update: We now have the final cover art with colours. It is said to be Cover B which is created by Dan Schoening. Catch it below.
