We finally get the missing piece of the story puzzle for this week’s comic preview!
This is the last Sonic issue before we unite for the worlds crossing over, and Arcade Sushi delivers a hint of the story that lies between Sonic Comic Origins #6 and Sonic Universe #75. In Sonic the Hedgehog #272, Sonic and the Freedom Fighters finally make it to Apotos with Knuckles and Chip in tow. Sonic and the light Gaia head off to find their first Gaia Gate to figure out how to restore their shattered planet. But there’s plenty of signs that a certain metal somebody is back for revenge against the blue blur! And the Freedom Fighters aren’t exactly throwing tea parties for Knuckles when they come face to face with a titanic force…dare I say of a Dark Gaian nature? This is ” A Ray of Hope”.
