I am a little dissapointed with 242,,, because it feels as though the main story (which is happening right now) doesn't exist (or is over).
SU 45, looks AWESOME, and I am exited.
SSSM: POSTERS !!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

ha ha (its been 100 issues since I got my first Sonic Comic) (Which was 142) 8)

That Olympic games cover has me cracking up. That alone makes it worth it. Hearing that comment about Knuckles is just icing on the cake.

I was wondering what the 45th issue of SU was going to be. I have no problems with it being a big tie-in story with All-Stars Racing Transformed. Someone please, please, PLEASE tell me Vyse is in this story somewhere. If he is, I'll be one happy Blue Pirate!

I'm a little...confused about that Digest Magazine though. It sounds like a re-reprint of the archives.

Either way. Those issues look like they're gonna be amazing.

Wow, I'm super excited for StH #242 and SU #45! And I think I'm actually gonna buy SSS#5 for those posters.

And does that mean the digest magazine is replacing SSS?

For those of you who are wondering: I'm fairly sure the Sonic Super Digest is just another reprint series. It's coming in digest size (y'know, about Sonic Archives size), meaning it'll be a cheaper and more affordable to the big ol' magazine.

Okay I'm very underwelmed here.

#242 I supose it will be a fun goofy throwback story but I mean it seems sorta non-canony.

SU #45 A full 20 page ATAP story I mean it'll be fun and seeing other SEGA characters will be cool but I'm not likely to reread it unless I play the game.

SSSM #5 okay that's kind of neat there's alot of good art that would make really good posters. Plus Eggman pulling out issue 0's cover is a nice acnkoledgment of the anniversary.

Digest #1 I already own those issues and awesome Yardley Cover or no unless there's an Origial story like some of the Archie Digests have I find it hard to care.

Archives #19 while I own these were getting close to the Adventure arc and issues I don't own so I'm going to get this.

Over all sorta Meh this time around.

The covers are good and all, but to Sonic Comic issues based on 2 games that are non canon?
I am okay with SU 45, but I am a little "depressed" with STH 242.
If the olympic story was a backstory then I would be satisfied. It makes me think that the current story in STH will be rushed in order to complete it in 241. Here I thought 250 was a story based on the current events.
Anyway, to me they feel like a Sonic X issue

Game tie ins. Game tie ins everywhere. Gotta say, I'm awfully disappoi-

IS THAT A POSTER BOOK?! *Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!*

Wow, how strange it is to be looking forward to SSSM 5 and Sonic Digest the most out of all of these. But they both look pretty awesome! :P

Also, cool to hear about a "Rad Red" return. I wonder if that means we'll be seeing more from Knuckles in the main comic at the same time as the Chaotix go off and do their own thing in SU. That would be awesome to have total Chaotix domination for a few months!
