Multiversity has the preview up for the latest upcoming Sonic issue! In Sonic the Hedgehog #264, Sonic, Amy and Sally are still on their Chaos Emerald retrieval quest when circumstances of a badnik kind lead them to running into some familiar faces; Mighty and Ray! But it’s not all casual in the rainforest as a new Egg Boss called Thunderbolt makes it their mission to take out Sonic the Hedgehog. How much more can Sonic take before the negativity consumes him? Find out in “Control”: part 1. Then, Antoine and Bunnie reflect on their marriage after a rescue mission gone a bit awry in “It’s a Nice Day to Start Again”.

Written by Ian Flynn, Joey Esposito and Benjamin Bailey

Hope you’ve been following Shadow Fall and Great Chaos Caper (aka the last two Sonic Universe arcs), because Sonic Universe #67’s new arc ties them both together! With Eclipse suspected to be on Angel Island, team Dark go on the hunt for him. Predictably, Knuckles is none too happy about this! Eclipse himself isn’t slacking on the pursuit either, all in “Total Eclipse”: part 1.
