Tackling “The Terror Below”

The latest issue of Archie’s Sonic Universe went on sale late last week.  Unfortunately, we’ve had some trouble tracking down a proper synopsis until today.

The pages come courtesy of 16 bit monster.  Issue 42 continues the Secret Freedom Fighters arc with Elias, Leeta, and Lyco, as they are hot on the trail of Ixis Naugus and whatever evil deeds he may be up to.  Ian Flynn penned the script.  Tracy Yardley, Jim Amash, Steve Downer and Jack Morelli handled issue art.  All but Amash had a hand in the cover.

That cover and the first three pages of Sonic Universe #42 follow Archie’s formal synopsis.  We usually have five inside pages to share.  If we spot those, this story will be updated.

”Unsung Heroes” Part Two: When Sonic is away, the SECRET FREEDOM FIGHTERS make evil pay! Deep under the city, in the scar left by the Battle Bird Armada, the evil wizard Ixis Naugus is shaping the earth to his whim. Elias, the deposed king, must lead his squad of Secret Freedom Fighters to find out what’s going on! But with Naugus able to control the stones and shadows, will Elias’ team emerge alive?
