Set Sail for Pirate Plunder Panic

This week saw the beginning of the latest Sonic Universe arc to follow the Worlds Collide crossover.  While the main Sonic series is dealing with the repercussions head-on, Universe has taken a turn toward the high seas.

Pirate Plunder Panic, the second Tracy Yardley written arc, debuts with Cream, Blaze, and Amy weathering both the storm above and the barrage of bombs threatening their ship.  The search for the last Sol Emerald is sure to be packed with twists, turns, and the occasional pirate talk–let’s just hope no more characters have to walk the plank!

Courtesy of Flickering Myth, the cover, variant cover, and first five pages of SU #55 follow Archie’s formal synopsis.  You can click the aforementioned citation to read a one-on-one with Yardley as well.
