Genesis’s Beginning of the End

Today, IGN released the formal preview to issue #230 from the principal Sonic the Hedgehog comic series.

The issue marks the end of the Sonic Genesis arc with the prologue, and also features a proper tie-in to Sonic Generations.  Ian Flynn penned the script.  Ben Bates, Terry Austin, Jamal Peppers, and Matt Herms are behind the artwork.  Ben Bates flies solo on the cover.

The cover, alternate cover, and first five pages of issue #230 follow Archie’s official synopsis.

“…Two Steps Back” & “SONIC GENERATIONS”: “Genesis” may be over, but Sonic’s 20th Anniversary celebration parties on! As the Genesis Epilogue unfolds, the Death Egg II still menaces New Mobotropolis, and Dr. Eggman has one more sinister trick up his sleeve. It’s a desperate race against time as Sonic and Sally try to prevent another world catastrophe, and the ending will leave you speechless. Also featuring a very special SONIC GENERATIONS video game story!
Script: Ian Flynn.
