Nack, Bean, and Bark v Babylon Rogues in Sonic Universe #23

Nack, Bean, and Bark v Babylon Rogues in Sonic Universe #23

This was a really fun issue, and a nice turn around in quality for this arc. Here we have obscure and not so obscure Sonic characters of all shapes and sizes, tripping over themselves to get Blaze’s coveted Sol emerald! As usual, the preview and solicit is posted below. The new Sonic Universe can be found in comic shops now, and can be found on newstands next week.

“Treasure Team Tango,” Part Three.
The race for the Sol Emerald continues, and things are getting heated! Can Team Rose and Team Dark settle down long enough to track down a thieving trio of hooligans? And when a surprise FOURTH team joins the fray, will it make things better– or worse?!

  1. I actually just got this a couple days ago and laughed my ass off at the cover. Cream and Cheese tryin to be badasses with Shadow facepalming in the background is priceless!

  2. Archie has published roughly 300 comics for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Not one has a better cover than this.

  3. First 3 pages with them 3 were awesome. Than I saw rouge…. cream shadow and amy and I went like BAWWW. Sucky characters are sucky

  4. This is fantastic, I feel like I’m playing a Sonic Adventure 2 game again. The complex story and multiple characters isn’t that bad to be honest, in fact I kinda miss it.

  5. Yes the cover is epic.
    Should I subscribe to this series? I stoped getting them after I bought 1-9

  6. I hope Shadow makes it up to Blaze for being a total dick. This innocent looks and lame ass “I’m sorry”s just ain’t gonna cut it.
    Wouldn’t it be in G.U.N’s best interest to first protect a distant world rather than trying to seize power by obtaining Sol Emeralds?

  7. Wow I’ll admit this looks cool…but like I said before I’m not a fan of Sonic Archie Comics (They ruin the main plot for me) , I strongly dislike the comics :/

  8. @superstingray
    I dunno, I’ve always been a fan of the cover for Sonic #176, and the one for the next issue (#220) looks admittedly cool as well. But to each their own, I suppose.

  9. got that book a week or so ago. Fun read, and lots of SEGAsonic-y goodness (in that the only comic char in this story is NICOLE). The cover is my screensaver at the moment lol
