Preview: Sonic the Hedgehog #259

The train service gets feisty in the latest issue of Sonic the Hedgehog!



The conclusion to this whistle-stop mission is due at the station, and Uproxx has a preview of it available. Sonic has managed to successfully locate Dr. Chuck and Professor Pickle, but all is not going to be smooth-sailing from here; E-106 Eta is on the attack, and Sonic is the primary target for elimination! The others still have the Badnik horde to contend with while supporting Sonic, and they’re going to have to take the fight by train and sky. Can the Freedom Fighters keep the two curmudgeons safe from the hands of evil? And just what is Dr Eggman’s ulterior motive for this particular  journey? Find out in “The Chase”: Part 2.

The brand new world of Sonic the Hedgehog barrels ahead at breakneck speed with “The Chase” Part Two: Sonic fights for his life against a NEW terrifying super-badnik! Just to make matters worse, they’re battling on an out-of-control train! With Dr. Eggman waiting at the depot, Sonic’s in a fight against time – and killer robots! Featuring high-speed cover art from Sonic artist supreme TRACY YARDLEY plus an exclusive SEGA game art variant!

Sonic the Hedgehog #259 is out now digitally and should be out in comic stores this Wednesday. Like Sonic Universe #62, it is one of the issues that is part of the After the Credits initiative, which means that there’s a different ending in each version of the comic. Check out both the standard and variant for the full picture!

  1. Literally JUST got caught up with what’s happening in the Sonic comics and I can’t wait to see how this all will end.

    Not sure how I feel about them bringing in the Werehog (it was heavily hinted at) but still excited!

  2. Just got #259, but apparently the variant issue had a misprint and I wasn’t allowed to buy one. Looks like I’m going to have wait for about 2 weeks until I can get that second secret ending. I did catch a glimpse though, it involves a certain echidna (but probably not the one you’re thinking of)…

  3. Gave 258 a chance and felt so let down.

    It may be a rebooted universe but its the same old boring story telling keeping me from getting interested in this comic at all.

    1. This issue’s story is extremely similar in tone and structure of a modern Sonic game…I’m not saying that’s a good or bad thing, I’m just saying….
