Chaos is Better Late Than Never

You’ll have to excuse the lateness on these solicits, as it appears Archie Comics has slacked off on promoting their own series in recent weeks.  Last week, issue 255, the next installment of the Countdown to Chaos arc, was shipped to stores, but only today have we caught wind of a proper preview.

Issue 255 re-introduces Bunnie Rabbot into the Freedom Fighter fold, but with many still missing, it’s up to Tails to find them.  But he and Sonic will have to hurry, with Eggman ready to tempt fate again.

The cover, variant cover, and several pages from issue 255 follow Archie’s formal 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)!
