  1. Sonic universe 24, looks cool, but i hope not to see, the “not game” characters, that blew all.

  2. The facial expressions in the Sonic Universe cover are priceless! And, as some already said, lol worthy @ Cream and Omega. It’s been such a long time since I read any of the Archie comics. Maybe I should get back into them again.

    Speaking of comics, it’s great to see this section back again.

  3. What’s Shadows deal? Issue 1 of SU he became allies with Blaze and Marine, now all of a sudden he’s with Rogue and being a dick again..

  4. He forgot to put Tails and Knuckles in the Cover, yet he remembered Bark the Polar Bear. Somebody needs to get their priorities straight.

  5. (@Miles Per-hour) Tails and Knuckles probably aren’t going to be in this story. Why would they be on the cover?

  6. Aww man these look nice! =D

    Sonic Select sounds like an interesting style. o.o

    sonic Universe is probably the best cover! I mean look at those funny combinations! I would’ve put Amy vs Wave and Rouge vs Fang though but whatever! Bean vs Jet = DUH! Win! Storm vs Bark = win. CREAM VS OMEGA!!!? Just look at Omega! XDD Definately a win! And Shadow vs Blaze seems typical cuz they’re both main-types, but it’s a funny combination especially with her expression. XD

    I wanna read that one! =)

  7. @cobanermani456
    Don’t you mean Blaze?

    That’s gotta be the wackiest comic book cover in Sonic comic history (referring to SU #24).

  8. Ian Flynn is so cool. i mean how many fanfictions have put Nack, Bark and Bean together in a Sonic Heroes fashioned team? Too many to count, but now it is actually legit, and I love it! I love that he takes the video game characters that haven’t had a whole lot of attention in the comics and is throwing them all together in this one story. So cool! Some wine about the Chaotix not being there, but come on, they have been regulars in the comic for like 14 years. And Big just had a story with Sonic. Anyway, yeah, i love these comics.

  9. Look out! The rabbit has a finger! Because all robots should be scared of flying rabbits. I’ll get the final installment of treasure team tango just for the insanity of it all. The cover for 221 looks nice, the story…. not so impressive as i thought. I’ll wait for it to come to stores, then ill decide whether or not to get it.

  10. I hope Sonic would be happy if Team Rose wins. But Amy might finally got Sonic’s heart and they are starting dating each other. But Sonic and Sally will never be couple again because they are broke up.
    SonAmy forever! ^^

  11. @ Ryan

    Yeah, in the present Sonic and Sally is broke up, but in Sonic Universe 30 Years Later they married and Sonic is King Sonic.

    Anyway, about the comics I going add them to my comics that I already have.
