“One Step Forward” to Genesis
The milestone 225th issue of the Archie published Sonic comics will begin shipping to subscribers this week. A preview of the big issue has been afforded to IGN.
The issue marks the return of the Death Egg to Sonic’s universe, as well as the death of a major character. It is the prelude to the Genesis arc, which IGN says will “change Sonic’s world for good.” Ian Flynn penned the script. Tracy Yardley, John Workman, Matt Herms and Terry Austin handled the inside art, while Patrick Spaziante handled the cover.
That gategold cover and the first five pages of issue 225 follow Archie’s official synopsis.
