Can the World Wait for Sonic and Sally?

“I have a date with Sonic tonight.”

“Shouldn’t you be getting ready for your date with Sally?”

Forget green eyes or physics; relationships are the foundation for a whole other round of arguments within the community.  For the first time in a while, a core relationship, potentially a romantic one, will be explored inside the pages of Archie’s Sonic #222, which began shipping yesterday.

For those who would rather not rock the boat, the issue also contains the conclusion to Second Impressions, starring Knuckles and Dimitri.  Ian Flynn penned the script, and six artists were on board for the issue including a name you may recognize: Jon Gray, formerly of Sonic HQ.  Ben Bates, Terry Austin and Matt Herms handled the cover.

That cover and the first five pages of The World Can Wait follow Archie’s official synopsis.

“The World Can Wait”: With all the adventures, surprises and public distress, a hero needs a chance to chill out! Sonic and Sally take on a totally new kind of adventure as they venture back into the realm of being “more than friends” – or will they?
