The Real Chaos May Be on the Cover

Change is afoot in the Archie Sonic comics, and one of those first signs of change may be upon first sight of Sonic #255, which will begin streaming into stores in early December.

Bunnie will be reintroduced into the fold then, as will be some rather different artwork, at least on the cover.  Both the main and variant show off very different designs first alluded to during the San Diego Comic Con.

You can look at both covers below, courtesy of Comic Vine, following Archie’s official synopsis.


“Countdown to Chaos” Part Three: The Freedom Fighters are one step closer to completion with the bombastic, bouncing debut of the battlin’ Bunnie Rabbot! But the journey isn’t over yet—some of Sonic’s teammates are still missing, and it’s up to the blue blur and his best buddy Tails to find them! What shocking secrets will our heroes uncover? And just what is the “countdown to chaos” counting down to? Meanwhile, Dr. Eggman returns to the Death Egg to test out his dire predictions. Is it possible that the unspeakable evil known as Eggman could be the only one who can save the world? Find out in this amped-up action-filled story, featuring new cover art from Sonic art superstar Ben Bates, which connects with the other “Countdown to Chaos” covers to form one giant image of awesomeness! Plus a freedom-fighting variant cover from Tyler Capps (Cooking Comically)!
