So the Sonic Underground conclusion has been delayed.


"Forged in Fire": Celebrate 50 issues of Sonic Universe and 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog comics with this double-sized anniversary spectacular! Metal Sonic has been one of Dr. Eggman's deadliest creations. But what happens when the fastest robot around has to track down... itself? It’s a clash of metallic titans as Metal Sonic is sent to take down his original model – now known as the Secret Freedom Fighter Shard! All this plus a special bonus presentation of the very first race between Sonic and Metal Sonic! Featuring a brand-new, bone-chilling cover from Sonic artist supreme Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, and special foil cover enhancements available EXCLUSIVELY for comic shops!
Script: Ian Flynn

Art: Tracy Yardley, Jim Amash, Jack Morelli, and Matt Herms

Foil-Enhanced Cover: Patrick Spaziante, and Matt Herms

On Sale at Comic Specialty Shops: 3/20

48-page, full color comic

$3.99 US.

Sonic Universe celebrates 50 issues - and Metal Sonic is crashing the party! On the eve of the epic Sonic/Mega Man crossover, 'Forged in Fire' will star a newly-rebuilt Metal Sonic as we've never seen him before - consumed by vengeance. It's metal-brother versus metal-brother as the heroic Shard throws down with this new hatred-fueled Metal Sonic! Metal has been a cold, calculated killer since he debuted in comic book form back in Sonic the Hedgehog #25 - and that original appearance will also be re-presented as a special bonus feature in SU#50! We've also got a stunning new cover by Sonic-art legend Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante and colorist Matt Herms which will sport comic-shop-exclusive metallic effects! The 'Sonic Underground' story originally slated for this issue in on a temporary hiatus, but fear not! There will still be music to celebrate this historic issue, only this time it's HEAVY METAL!

Please let this Metal have a personality and not just a terminator drone... and let it last for all eternity!

Bit disappointed. I wanted the Sonic Underground zone to be put to rest once and for all.

As for the replacement issue. Don't care. It's just a Metal Sonic story. But at least this issue will be padded with a reprint of #25 as a nice apology. So it's the thought that counts.

I'm very divided about the news.

On one hand, I was really looking forward to the Sonic Underground issue and now I'll have to wait at least another four months for it. IF it's the first thing they do post-crossover.

On the other hand, the issue's premise sounds delicious. I love me some Metal Sonic and throwing Shard in there too? Absolutely mouth watering.

WHA-!? HUH-!? ...SUH!?

First off, I'm actually glad the landmark won't be Underground since I always did think it should be more special than that (I'm still looking forward to seeing the Underground story at some point down the line mind you).

Secondly, this new development in general is a major surprise. I honestly never would've thought we'd get another clash between a Metal Sonic and Shard so soon after #240, and the solicit seems to be implying that this Metal Sonic just may last longer than the others...he better, we need MS to be threatening again.

And it's 48 pages!! Except it's only for the sake of having yet another reprint of #25. Ehhh...

The story going on hiatus is odd. Normally I'd be excited for this, but for some reason I'm not entirely. It'll be nice if this makes up for the Team Metal reputation, at least.

Well, I'm always happy for more Shard, and I wasn't way excited about the Underground thing, so I'm not too bothered. ...But still, that's really weird. They must be doing some massive restructuring behind the scenes, but I wonder why Underground would be a problem? Things that make you go 'hmm'.

EDIT: Oh, there's two of these threads. Whoops.

Ok so now if this is a single issue heres how scheduling will go:

Sonic Universe 50-Forged in Fire
Sonic Universe 51-54-Parts of The Crossover
Sonic Universe 55-Sonic Underground returns.


Not really THAT much of a delay. I guess I can wait for my Underground fix.

On Topic: Yeah! Shard and Metal Sonic Ultra Mega Epic Ultimate Robot Smackdown on the way. :D

EDIT: BTW Should this new SU #50 have a thread of it's own?

I like the reflective effect on Metal Sonic, gives him more of a metallic feel.
By the way, is it just me, or does that stance remind you of one of the scenes in the OVA?
