Preview: Sonic Boom #6

I much prefer Reactive Factory’s music, thank you.

sonicboom-06-0-130172 has the preview for Sonic Boom #6 (not the first issue as the cover would lead you to believe), and it’s a quaint day at the races for our heroes…on paper. But when Eggman challenges Sonic to a race in go-karts, no amount of rules like no powers and no robots or weapons will shake off the feeling that there’s something off about this particular drive. And where is Sticks going exactly? Perhaps the answers will lay in “Everybody’s Super Sonic Racing”: part 1.

What…What is that sound? No, really—what on earth is that noise? Waitaminute… is that the sound of go-karts??? IT… IT—IS! LET THE RACE BEGIN IN “EVERYBODY’S SUPER SONIC RACING” PART ONE! (IS THE CAPS LOCK STILL ON, OH WAITAMINUTE, there we go. Much better.) When Dr. Eggman sponsors a go-kart race around Sonic’s Island home, you know that dude is up to no good. The rules are as follows: no special powers, no weapons, and everyone has to drive a kart to keep things fair. Since when does Eggy care about “fair”? What will happen to throw this race into a SPIN? How many rhetorical questions can we ask in one paragraph of solicit text?? Find out in this hyperbole-packed issue! Featuring cover art from Sonic comic extraordinaire Tracy Yardley, plus a new BOOM-Crew Sega art variant!

Sonic Boom #6 is scheduled for release later today, although I don’t think you’ll have quite as much of a perilous commute for it.



  1. “Based on the new hit video game and TV series!”
    I would by no means call the video game “a hit”… but the tv show is pretty good.

    Also I don’t really get the first-issue not-first-issue joke. Anyone care to explain?

    1. It was originally coming out on April 1st, so this was a joke making it look like the first issue when it’s actually the 6th issue. As you can obviously see though it got delayed by a week. And does anyone out there know when SSSM #15 is set to come out?
