Want Details on the Backstory for Sonic 4: Episode II? Read the Blue Blur’s Next Comic

We know for sure that Tails is making a return in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, but what about the rest of the upcoming downloadable sequel’s story? That’s where Archie Comics comes in. The third issue of Sonic Super Special will tie Sonic CD in with the Blue Blur’s next numbered adventure.

The comic will contain two chapters meant specifically to give you a bit of backstory going into Episode II and a reprint of a story that appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog No. 25, which was a companion comic to Sonic CD. Metal Sonic has been confirmed to appear in the downloadable title and, of course, Robotnik — I refuse to acknowledge the name Eggman — will be up to his old hijinx when next we meet him. At its best, Super Special No. 3 and Episode II will be a riveting tale of nature defeating industrialism. At its worst, this is Sonic’s Attack of the Clones. What have you got to lose?
