Preview: Sonic the Hedgehog #277

We may be on the plains, but this mission won’t be plain-sailing.


After a much longer gap than anticipated, Sonic the Hedgehog #277 is officially right around the corner, and Comics Alliance has the preview for it! In the first story, Sonic, Sally and Bunnie have met up with an old face with a brand new coat of paint; Lupe the Wolf! While taking on another Super Badnik, find out how they know her…and what they don’t know about her that links into the Shattered World Crisis, in “Thunder, Rain and Lightning”. Then, Sally, Nicole and Bunnie have picked up the track of the last Chaos Emerald needed, but the problem is that it’s right in the thick of Egg Boss Clove’s territory! What tricks and traps will the team encounter, and what is the deal with Clove, Cassia and their army? Uncover a bit about it in “Hidden Costs”; part 1.

SONIC TAKES THE LEAD in the race to fix the planet! “Thunder, Rain and Lightning”: Sonic and the team link up with Lupe to destroy one of Dr. Eggman’s super badniks! How does this tie into fixing the shattered world? And just what secrets does Lupe keep? Then, in “Hidden Costs” Part One, Sally and Bunnie hunt down the final Chaos Emerald—which is in the heart of Egg Boss Clove’s forbidden territory! Featuring cover art from jammin’ Jamal Peppers and a “BATTLE!” variant from Sonic comics all-star Tyson Hesse!

Sonic the Hedgehog #277 is officially released in stores and digitally next Wednesday. However, with the original release date having been October 14th, the Sonic comic app had it available accidentally for a short period of time. If someone tells you they’ve already bought it, that’s probably why. Don’t worry, you haven’t missed out!

  1. Absolutely love the art of this issue! Especially the part where Sonic is running with Lupe behind him, really gives a strong sense of speed.

  2. I felt this issue was disappointing.

    Especially since I read it immediately after Mega Man 54.

    1. Since issue 256. Which came out in either December or January of 2013 I want to say.

      I may be wrong though so take this with a bucket of salt.

      1. No worries there, I’ll just Google the issue and get a month.

        Let’s see… January 8, 2014 but judging from the issue description it would be more like issue 253 since that starts the countdown for it, and that one came out in October 2013 meaning its been running for two years now, minus the crossover of course… Err, that’s pretty long. This might sound whiny, but didn’t Ian and Archie say the comic was going to have shorter running storylines back in 2013?

        1. I couldn’t answer that. I started reading the comocs at Sonic 247. I didn’t really know about the Bumbleking forums until SU 67 came out.
