  1. 1. That first cover it almost looks like a pair of lips is chasing sonic lol
    2. That pirate basically looks like a blue tails. Just stare and youll see it.

  2. Very interested to see how these revisits of Sonic 1 & 2’s plot stack up to the Genesis arc Archie made a few years ago.

    Firstly… Classic Sonic is back in the comics. Looks like a new story of Sonic pre-Freedom Fighters, under the new continuity.
    Secondly, Pirates vs Ninjas. I know the Chaotix have been in a bit of a scrap with pirates previously in the comics, but that was in the old continuity.
    Thirdly, and most importantly, CONTROL! I ONLY collect the Graphic Novels for the main series, so knowing release information on the 4th iteration is glorious to me. Can’t wait for CHAMPIONS after.
