Comic Preview: Solicitation for IDW Sonic the Hedgehog #6 and a Collector’s Boxset revealed

This month has all sorts of surprises in store as June brings us both a new issue and a new collectors item for those who just want more comic hedgehog!

In Sonic the Hedgehog #6, Eggman’s whereabouts has been found, and Sonic obviously goes off to square off against him. But there’s more than one hedgehog on Eggman’s tail as Shadow the Hedgehog also wants a piece of the good doctor! When it’s time to come to blows, who will Sonic side with in the heat of the moment? This is “The Fate of Dr. Eggman”: part 2. While the Chaotix were in the last issue as well, Rouge being in the mix may mean there’s more than meets the eye…
