See What Everyone’s Thrashing About

You’ve seen the background and controversy surrounding what we now know to be an altered Sonic the Hedgehog #244 from Archie Comics in the wake of a settlement allegedly reached in the Ken Penders copyright case.  Now, if it isn’t already in your hands, you can see for yourself why so many are so concerned.

The beginning of issue #244, part two of the Endangered Species arc, is barren right out of the gates.  We see glimpses of Thrash, but no other echidnas, with Sonic, Knuckles, and the rest of the main gang puzzled and soon infuriated as to what’s going on.

Take a look at the cover and first five pages of issue #244, courtesy of Destructoid, following Archie’s synopsis–which, keep in mind, was written in September.
