Covers and Solicitations for Sonic the Hedgehog #262, Sonic Universe #65 and SSSM #12 Revealed

Water, water, everywhere in June’s selection of Sonic comics!

Midtown Comics has the latest solicitations in, and there’s danger from drowning for everyone to kick off the summer months. In Sonic the Hedgehog #262, we continue exploring underwater as the submerged city comes under attack from Dark Gaia’s minions. Sonic not being able to swim won’t help, but maybe Amy can? This is “Waves of Change”: part 3.

Catch some sun and ride the wave as the aquatic adventure continues in ‘Waves of Change,’ Part 3! Sonic faces a city invasion by the ominous Dark Gaia Monsters! To make it even worse, the invasion is underwater – and Sonic can’t swim! As the struggle turns desperate, will it be Amy’s mission to find the key to saving them all, or will Sonic be left to drown? Then, in ‘The Light in the Dark,’ Part 2, the Freedom Fighters find what they’re looking for – but will their own divisions bring them down? Featuring new cover art from Ben Bates and an extra-special ‘monster movie’ variant from artist T.REX!

Meanwhile, in Sonic Universe #65, Knuckles and the Chaotix venture deeper into the mystery as they head to the Aquatic Mines. There’s no rap to greet them, but there’s the risk of being caved in still present. And they have to track down the Emerald thief before Team Hooligan do, to boot! This is “The Great Chaos Caper”: part 3.

Bust out your detective hats and hop on the case in ‘The Great Chaos Caper,’ Part 3. Knuckles and the Chaotix are in the heart of the Aquatic Mines-where their only two options are to get crushed by a cave-in, or to drown! How on earth (and below earth!) can they make it out alive? And once they do, they’ve got to chase down the unlikely Chaos Emerald thief before Nack’s team of Hooligans beat them to it! Add in ravenous Dark Gaia Monsters, and there may be too much for our heroes to handle! Featuring new cover art from Sonic comic guru Tracy Yardley and an awesome SEGA game art variant starring the Chaotix!

Finally, we take some time from the water to look back in retrospect. The Mega Drive turns 25 and Sonic Super Special Magazine #12 is taking time to reflect on its history, including the origins of other beloved game classics of its time, new art and new interviews.
