Covers and Solicitations for Sonic the Hedgehog #279 and Sonic Universe #82 Released

I’m falling free in the…pages. And I don’t remember a verse where Sonic became Godzilla.

After a strange release schedule of the solicits last month, we’re back on track as Arcade Sushi brings us covers and info on two new releases! First up, we’ve got continuation of two stories in the same book. Sonic the Hedgehog #279 sees Sonic, Antoine, Big and their Freedom Fighter allies are now at the mercy of new Egg Boss Nephthys and troops in their pursuit of a Gaia key. Will they be able to save themselves before they can save the guardian? Find out in “Face of the Enemy”: part 2. Then, the fight between Sally and Bunnie against Egg Bosses Cassia and Clove has wrapped up, and each side thinks they’ve won. But did anyone truly win in the end? This is “Hidden Costs”: part 3.

Meanwhile, in the bizarro tale of Silver, the unleashed evil is proving too much for Silver’s powers alone to handle in his current state. Gold the Tenrec and Professor Von Schlemmer may be able to offer a bit of extra brain power for the cause, and it may be a bigger effect than you’d think. Promising a conclusion you wouldn’t be able to predict, this is “The Silver Age”: part 4.
