Comic Preview: Sonic the Hedgehog #99

A new solicitation has come in for Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog comic, and it looks like we’re now getting an idea as to how the book will play out certain scenarios over the next few months. The cover for issue #99 also features a heatbreaking scene involving Sonic, Mina and Sally. Will this turn into a full-blown love triangle? Details after the jump.

Blow By Blow: After returning to Knothole, Geoffrey informs Elias that Robotnik still has robotization on his mind. Sally disguises herself as a servant and manages to sneak out of Castle Acorn in order to go see Sonic, but Sonic has his hands full trying to stay incognito while he continues his quest for Arachnis and the Sword – not to mention Mina, Sally’s latest rival for Sonic’s affections. The intrigue never ends where Kodos, Doctor Quack, Tails, Nate, Elias and Knuckles all play a part.

There is a back-up story in this issue, but the solicitation gets it wrong; Sonic #99 will feature a secondary strip titled ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ which will see the return of Julie-Su and the Dark Legion. Exciting!

32 pages, $1.99, ships on June 29.
