Worlds apart, they couldn’t be more opposite if they tried.
Well, haven’t the last few weeks been interesting. SSMB has been down (and undergone a slight time warp), and a few technical hiccups have delayed these comic updates. But now we’re aiming for the right track with a catch-up on what’s gone down. And as luck would have it, we got a very rare occurrence; two comics came out on the same day!
Comic Book Resources has the preview for Sonic #270. The Chaos Emerald Championship draws on, and more big names bite the dust. Amy takes on Knuckles as he goes about his mission, Sonic tackles the mischievous Honey, and the Hooligans are still running about like loose cannons. But things aren’t as straight forward as they look on the surface, there’s treachery afoot, and it has Eggman all over it, and there’s more shade about Breezie’s past than one would think! All this fights its way into “Champions”: part 3.
“Champions” Part Three: The battle for the Chaos Emerald is reaching a fevered pitch! Hero versus hero! Villain versus villain! Will Dr. Eggman be content to play by the rules? Will Metal Sonic come in and shake things up? And what exactly is the secret history between Metal Sonic and casino mogul Breezie?! All of the answers await you in this thrilling, penultimate chapter! Featuring all-new cover art from one of the newest Sonic superstars Jennifer Hernandez, plus a special “Marvel at the Showdown” variant cover by the incomparable Brent McCarthy!

Meanwhile, we trade fighting garb for Lederhosen for Sonic Boom’s latest offering.
Arcade Sushi are the ones with the preview for Sonic Boom #5. Eggman wants to manipulate the village for his own sick amusement, but how can he take advantage of them with a zero publicity rating? The solution to try and get into their good graces, and the answer for that to him is to throw an event for them. But he’s not going to get far with that unless he calls in the help of our heroes. Join in the ‘festivities’ and make a trip to the fair in “Eggtoberfest”.
