Tensions are rising in Meropis, and Uproxx has an exclusive preview of the next part of the undersea adventure. Coral has been approached by the royal guard for her failure to reincarnate the ancient chao, so Sonic and Amy go with her and Razor to confront the rulers of the underwater city. But can they win over the government when friction is at an all time high? And what of the Dark Gaia Monsters lurking outside? Find out in “Waves of Change”: part 2. Meanwhile, Sally, Antoine and Tails continue their mission for a Chaos Emerald within Eggman’s base in “Light in the Dark”: part 2.

Covers and Solicitations for Sonic the Hedgehog #261 and Sonic Universe #64 Revealed

A new month brings new issue details, and this month is bringing in the monsters on the covers!

Midtown Comics is covering both of the new issue details this time. Firstly from them, Sonic, Amy and Rotor continue their underwater recovery of the Chaos Emeralds, only to run afoul of political problems when their new friend Coral (who isn’t actually on the regular cover at all, he’s a new Mantis Shrimp character!) gets in bad books with her own government. Then, continuing the back-up story of last issue, the plan that Sally concocted to tackle Eggman’s plans appears to have gone awry! This is “Waves of Change”: Part 2 and back-up “Light in the Dark”: Part 2;

Then, as was simultaneously revealed, the fight between team Chaotix and team Hooligan wages on. Knuckles has his own job to do so he has to work on through the mad grab for the Chaos Emerald. But who he finds is arguably more striking (not the match on the regular cover, though)…and dare I say possibly more important. This is “The Great Chaos Caper”: Part 2.

‘The Great Chaos Caper,’ Part Two. The chaos continues! It’s hijinks and high explosives galore with Knuckles caught in the middle of all the action! The Chaotix and the Hooligans are falling over each other to get to a Chaos Emerald – the key to saving (or dooming) the world! It’s up to Knuckles to power through the madness and complete his own mission, and in his travels, you’ll never believe who he finds! Featuring new cover art from Tracy Yardley and a rad red SEGA Variant cover!

Whatever happens in these issues, you can guarantee that there will at least be a good amount of Gaia minion thrashing! We’ll have more info on these issues closer to their release.
