Preview: Sonic Universe #80

This month’s issue is going deeper down the rabbit hole, complete with mysterious voices.


Newsarama has released the preview for Sonic Universe #80 as the mystery continues to unfold. Silver and Von Schlemmer are now a (not quite close) team, but Schlemmer’s efforts to propose a solution to the council fall on deaf ears. Why do they not want to hear it? To make matters worse for Silver, a voice starts calling out to him, which is bound to drag him even further into this mess. Can Silver and co. get to the bottom of this mystery before it gets them? Find out in “The Silver Age”: part 2.

The FUTURE is in DANGER, and only Silver the Hedgehog can make things right! “The Silver Age” Part Two: Silver has teamed up with Prof. von Schlemmer and they have a plan for stopping the Genesis Portals! This seems like the solution everyone’s been waiting for—but why doesn’t the Council want to hear it? The mystery deepens as a voice calls out to Silver—a voice that only he can hear! Will our unlikely heroes uncover the conspiracy, or die trying? Featuring cover art from the Sonic comic master Tracy Yardley and a CHAOS CRISIS variant by Rafa Knight!

  1. Aghhh, if only I were subscribed to this stuff. I love what they’re doing, and if the games did it, I’d love Silver that much more. You know it’s good when they can totally revamp an otherwise completely goofy, older, and more out-of-place character from a crazy 90s cartoon show into something bigger, like this… and still make it work out in the end. Von Schlemmer here is a good example of how I think the series can have humans and still have them fit within the mythos. I like it when they’re fairly cartoony in design, in proportion to the anthropomorphic creatures , and have fun personalities. Remember, guys.. never forget Professor Pickle.

    1. I completely agree with this, this is one thing I can’t stand the games for, no one has much, if any, personality or individuality! They’re pretty much all either Sonic mk II, Eggman mk II or they just exist for the sake of plot points. Yet Archie somehow always manages to fill each and every character with life, personality and individuality, even the ones from the games, without interfering with the rich lore, mythos and world which the games also lack (Seriously, when have the games ever contained any form of history, lore or mythos relating to the world aside from the vague touch on the Echidnas and Dark Gaia and Shadows history which was more character-specific history and such anyway?).

      1. I seriously think that Archie’s direction is very good.. and I wish the games would do it too. Maybe they will next year.

        1. I doubt it. Sega will probably play it safe as usual. Better to keep those expectations low then get them hyped up for absolutely nothing.

        2. Yeah, I wish SEGA would just hire whoever’s writing for Archie Comics now (I forget the name lol) to write the games… Then again, last time they attempted something like that, we got Sonic Chronicles…

          1. I kinda liked Sonic Chronicles. If I recall it was also one of the only games where critics/players praised Sonic’s friends as likable cause they we’re written well.

            I think Sega should try and do a Sonic Archie comics game kinda like what ultimate Spider-man did. just to see how well it does.

          2. When did I say Bioware? They developed the game, sure, but did they write any of it?

            Also yeah, something like that or just another branch off from the main game series that, plot and character-wise, works like the comics but in game form like that cancelled SATAM game. I would throw all of my money at that!
