This was a really good issue. The last couple of two-parters really only felt serviceable, but this one not only gives some much needed back story to a character that’s long needed it, but has introduced some shades of gray that Sonic comics have been lacking in. In any case, the issue is now out in comic specialty shops this week, and will released on newsstand come next week.
This comic also sees the debut of new artist Ben Bates as the main story artist.
Here’s the preview pages and solicitation.
“Thicker than Water” Part One:
Sonic and Bunnie head out into the Great Desert to aid Freedom Fighters in need, but they get caught up an whirl-wind ruckus! Who is friend and who is foe? Sonic comes face-to-face with enemies of the past while Bunnie is reunited with someone of her mysterious past! Then, in “Welcome Back, Chao!” Amy Rose runs into a few familiar faces – and a few new ones, too!
SCRIPT: Ian Flynn.
ART: Ben Bates, Tracy Yardley!, Terry Austin, John Workman and Matt Herms
