Restarting the “Countdown to Chaos”
It wasn’t that long ago that the critical Countdown to Chaos arc graced the pages of Archie Sonic comic readers. But for those who missed it, the publisher released today a special graphic novel chronicling the complete arc.
The treasury includes clean primary and variant covers, as well as Countdown to Chaos in its entirety.
Preview pages for the graphic novel released by Archie are below, following Archie’s formal synopsis.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG VOL. 1:COUNTDOWN TO CHAOS
IT ALL BEGINS HERE! Moving at the speed of sound, keeping the world free from robotic tyranny — it’s SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! Spin-dashing directly out of the MEGA-SMASH “Sonic/Mega Man: WORLDS COLLIDE” story arc, “Countdown to Chaos” speeds into brand new comic book stories with new friends, new foes and new adventures! The entire planet has been rocked by Dr. Eggman’s Super Genesis Wave! Sonic wakes up to a world and a life he doesn’t recognize! It’s up to him to gather up his friends—the Freedom Fighters—and figure out what’s been changed. Meanwhile, below his very feet, a new threat is about to burst out!
