Here in the sunny UK, the weather has been rather hot recently, so a dip in the water is warranted. Comic Book Resources have released the preview for Sonic the Hedgehog #260, and what better way to kick off the summer of the Sonic comic, then, than to have a whole new adventure under the ocean waves! Sonic, Amy and Rotor are sent out to search for a Gaia temple, when they are called upon by an undersea civilisation to help them. What new faces will we meet there, and what’s going on deep down beyond the Dark Gaia monsters popping up and beginning to attack the area? Find out in “Waves of Change”: Part 1. Meanwhile, Sally, Nicole, Antoine and Tails are starting their little mission into an Eggman base, in the search for a much-needed Chaos Emerald in “Light in the Dark”: part 1.

But will those he encounters prove to be friend or foe? Then, in “Light in the Dark”: Part One – Sally, Nicole, Tails and Antoine venture into the Eggman’s latest grab for power to retrieve a desperately-needed Chaos Emerald!

Meanwhile, Flickering Myth has unveiled the next universe arc, and it looks to be chaos! Knuckles heeds forces telling him to fix the broken planet below, and wouldn’t you know it, Sally’s hired the Chaotix to hunt out the Chaos Emeralds at the same time. When their two paths meet, it only means a team up of quite the baddie-beating power, which can perhaps be used against any hooligans they happen to find alongside the Rexes and Nightmares coming out of the planet! This is “The Great Chaos [Trust me, it’s chaos] Caper”: Part 1.
