Comic Preview: Sonic the Hedgehog #281

Instant awesome, just add dragons. Supposedly.

There’s a new comic shortly along the road, and Comics Alliance has a preview for it. First up in Sonic the Hedgehog #281, Sonic and some other Freedom Fighters are in Chun-Nan on the hunt for that area’s Gaia Key. The place is under fortification from Silver Sonic and Eggman’s other forces though, so they need a bit more fire power!

But while Dulcy may bring the force, is her fledgling ready to take on such crucial stakes? Find out in “Wings of Fire”: part 1. Then, Bunnie and Tails are looking for a Gaia Key in Adabat, but they’ll need to help out the local key guardian in his time of need in “Homesick”.

  1. Cream’s in the field? Awesome! Last time we saw action from her was in Pirate Plunder Panic.

    1. Yep. Thought it may be the belated Valentine’s cover with Sonic and his unruly harem that makes you nostalgic for Tenchi.

  2. I like Dulcy’s redesign. Her old design’s classic, but in this era it doesn’t fit well with the other designs. More like Charizard and less like Dragonite is a good thing.

    1. Now it’s all Mobian Citizen, and less Mobian-based Bus
