Sonic the Hedgehog #198 in comic shops now

The road to Sonic’s land mark 200th issue continues today, with #198 now available in comic shops across America. In it, Sonic returns to his fight with Eggman, and his newest weapon, the Egg Pheonix! Archie’s newest artist, Renae De Liz, also debuts in this issue. I must say, I’m rather dissapointed that her excellent pencils didn’t hold up to Archie’s inking and coloring team. You can see the cover and four action packed pages below:

“Egg Phoenix Down”: The countdown to the epic Sonic the Hedgehog #200 continues! Sonic leads the fully assembled Freedom Fighters and Chaotix on an invasion of Dr. Robotnik’s city, but the doctor unleashes a terrifying new weapon that may make their fight a short one! Don’t miss all the egg-plosive action!

  1. Wow! We must be lucky! In stead of seeing”the cover and four action packed pages below” we get to see the cover and FIVE action packed pages! lol jk ;D

  2. My evil echidna feminine friend, you just made the wrong assumption. Now you have the Chaotix PWNing you.

  3. It’s about time that Kommissar came back looking bangin’, I hated the way she looked in Yardley’s design. Way too cartoony for my taste, I like her when she’s all sexy and detailed. Same goes for Julie-Su and Princess Sally. I love sexy women in my Sonic comics and that’s half the reason why I DON’T pick up issues now (I know that makes me sound positively bisexual, I assure you I’m a men’s lady!). Bring on the good artists that draw hot babes and bad-ass looking Sonic and Knuckles!
