Let the Metal Madness Commence
What was to be an epilogue to Sonic Underground has become truly roboticized in Sonic Universe #50. The issue, the last in the Universe series before the Sonic x Mega Man crossover commences, instead centers on a new Metal Sonic story.
The issue opens with Metal and Shard at odds, as reviewed by Eggman before the beast is re-born and gets ready for round two. Ian Flynn penned the script. Patrick Spaziante designed a special cover.
That cover and the first five pages of SU #50 follow Archie’s synopsis, all courtesy of IGN.
