Comic Preview: Sonic the Hedgehog #280

Rev up your engines, because we’re going top gear into intrigue!

The Shattered World Crisis continues on in Efrika for Sonic the Hedgehog #280, and Comics Alliance has a preview for it. Sonic, Tails and Chip have travelled to Mazuri to obtain the next Gaia Key, but this situation proves to be taking the bull by the horns as they take on Axel the Water Buffalo and his Egg Army!

But what exactly has Chip found in the Gaia Temple that’s so shocking? Find out in “Keys to Victory”.  Meanwhile, Sally and Rotor are also on the search for Gaia Keys, but the problem they find is more personal than physical in “A Special Occasion”.

  1. Xd ahaha i loved the discussion between the oldmen XD its so cute!
    besides Tails talking about Sonic and Chip’s reaction.. was so adorable XD

  2. Please tell me I’m not the only one that finds Sallys “Thank you!” face here adorable!

    Also, that’s an interesting take on that boss. I like it! Far more interesting than just “OH no, Eggman’s at it again!”

    1. You’re not the only one. 😀

      I like how Archie is doing a unique spin on a lot of stuff from the games, while not being so far removed that it doesn’t feel right.

      1. Same here, it’s really interesting and honestly, I think they’re doing a far better job at tying it all together into one universe than SEGA ever has.
