No Echidnas, Still Problems
For those who aren’t subscribers, today is the day you’ll see Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog #245 begin trickling into newsstands and comic book stores.
This issue marks part three of the Endangered Species arc, now widely controversial for the way it appeared to write out many beloved secondary characters, including many whose ownership were contested when Archie Comics sued former Sonic writer Ken Penders. At last check, that case still appears to be in a settlement phase.
In the meantime, Knuckles continues to fight Thrash in an effort to save the deposed echidnas, while a recharged Metal Knuckles appears to have his evil eyes set on Sonic.
Take a look at the cover and the first five pages of Sonic #245, courtesy of IGN. We would normally precede that with a synopsis, but it appears the latest information we have on file does not account for the last-minute changes applied to this arc.
