“On the Brink” of Echidnas Under Siege

Today, non-subscribers should begin to see Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog #243 trickle into stores.

The issue begins the Endangered Species arc, in which Knuckles’s homeland of Albion and the inhabitants left there are threatened by forces under Lien-Da.  When Metal Knuckles shows up to confront Sonic and company, things get really complicated.  Ian Flynn penned the script.  Steven Butler, Terry Austin, John Workman, and Matt Herms handled the issue’s artwork, with Tracy Yardley joining Herms on the cover.

The cover and first five pages of Sonic #243 are available in the gallery below courtesy of Destructoid, following Archie’s formal synopsis.

“Endangered Species” Part One: Sonic and Team Fighters have arrived at Albion, ancestral homeland of the echidnas. And it’s under siege! It’s up to our heroes to stop Lien-Da’s forces from conquering the war-torn city. But that will be hard when Metal Knuckles arrives!
