Two more arcs end with a shattering bang, while the new comic picks up steam with its second issue!
Midtown Comics has the covers and solicitations for the comics coming out in the holiday month, but these issues are going to be anything but peace on earth! In Sonic the Hedgehog #267, Sonic is still trying to get his wild side under control, but he’s got to do it quickly because he’s still under fire from the relentless Egg Boss Thunderbolt! The other Freedom FIghters are being attacked by several E100s, so they’re just as hot under the collar in “Ambushed”: part 2.

The thunderous conclusion to the latest Sonic story arc crashes to a close at lightning speed! ‘Ambushed!’ Part Two: Sonic’s gotten himself into a hairy situation! The savage Werehog threatens to erupt from within, and the vengeful Egg Boss Thunderbolt attacks from without! What’s a cursed hedgehog to do? Unfortunately he won’t get by with a little help from his friends; the Freedom Fighters are far too busy fighting for their lives against three killer E-100 robots! Don’t miss the explosive ending featuring cover art by Stanley, Austin and Hunzeker, plus a hilarious new ‘Holiday Havoc!’ variant cover with pencils by Sonic artist extraordinaire Jennifer Hernandez!
In Sonic Universe #70, Eclipse has joined the list of individuals that have nabbed the Master Emerald, and it’s serious enough that Shadow and Knuckles need to stop fighting and get it back. But with the full force of the Dark Arms now on their backs, there might only be one thing left for Knuckles to do, and he won’t like it one bit. This is “Total Eclipse”: part four.

Featuring stunning new cover art from Yardley, Amash and Hunzeker, plus an awesome SEGA art variant featuring two of the biggest ‘Total Eclipse’ stars: Knuckles and Rouge!
Finally, in Sonic Boom #2, we rejoin our heroes in this new continuity for more shenanigans, but there might be a traitor amongst their ranks. Guess who, and perhaps why, in “Knucklesduster”.
