An Eggman Arc, and the Trial of a Traitor

We have a couple Sonic comic previews to share for February 2012.

In the main issue, it looks like matters will come to a head with the People vs. Geoffrey St. John, but there are other issues as Eggman prepares another devastating attack.  Over on the Universe side, Eggman himself will be the focus of his own arc…that is, if Snively doesn’t try to steal the spotlight.  Orbot and Cubot will debut in SU #37.

Covers for both follow the synopses for both.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #234
“Unthinkable”: Sonic and the Freedom Fighters have one mission: see Elias and his family leave the city safely. That’ll be hard to do as Dr. Eggman attacks with his latest, most loathsome weapon to date! In such a high-stakes mission, even the unthinkable can happen. Then, in “Dark Hearts,” learn the untold history between Ixis Naugus and Dr. Eggman!
