Fleetway Vs Archie! Dobbyn/Yardley Ltd Ed Print For SOS 2011

Let me tell you a story, you guys think we plan things a few months in advance. Well I officially began plans for Summer Of Sonic 2011 on August 8th, you may recognise that as the day after SOS 2010.

Though I didn’t tell the other staff for a few months, myself and Tracy Yardley! were having a bit of a chat. You see Tracy sent a load of artworks over for 2010 for you guys to purchase from the store and he thought SOS was great, so we looked to get him over this year.

I though had another idea, why not get Archie and Fleetway together? Their Sonic teams were rather contrasting, and with Archie’s team having all kinds of multi-verse alternate shenanigans wouldn’t it make sense that eventually the two would collide? Sooo, I proposed the prospect of a limited print to Tracy featuring both the Archie and Fleetway teams.

Tracy loved the idea and I then e-introduced him to Nigel, the result you can (partly) see below – a Yardley/Dobbyn collab featuring every Sonic comic fan’s dream Fleetway Vs Archie!

This limited edition print will be on sale at SOS and I’m sure will be in red hot demand. I know I want one!

We’ll show you the final result when its coloured and will of course give full details on pricing/numbers when we get it from messers Yardley and Dobbyn.

More surprises that both will and will not involve your wallet to come. :)

    Wow! Looks amazing. Will turn up early to get one of these. Got my yardley print from last year on the wall and framed.

  2. Looks like Sonic Generations. Archie Sonic is the Modern one, and Fleetway Sonic is the Classic one. The same applies to pretty much all the other characters. The biggest difference between Generations and this, is that they’re fighting with each other instead of teaming up.
    Interesting… :)

    Absolutely awesome. I remember versions of similar on DeviantArt, including the Chaotix and a version with the bad guys of the series.

    But, this is as “official” as it’s going to get for something like this, which is much more awesome.

  7. Remember when my head exploded earlier from excitement at having Dobbyn appearing again? Well I managed to fix it back on only for it to happen again. This print just screams official and I can’t wait to see it coloured.
