IGN has a pretty nicely succinct overview of what's coming up:

Ok, I get that only portions of MM #28 and StH #252 are going to be included in WC trade, but are #23 and 247 of the comics going to be included in their entirely or just the latter half like in the FCBD prelude?

Did that say eight variant covers? Is that right?

Keep clicking past the blank advertisement page and the other three show up.

That's a lot of variants.

Evan's and Ben's are my favorite. Lemar Wells' is a bit lazy though.. isn't that just a piece of art out of his DA gallery?

I'm still unsure about the crossover. We've just gotten this new universe, and suddenly we're being thrown into another crossover. I'd rather be spending the issues it's taking up exploring the NuUniverse.

So I'm guessing Universe 75 takes place after STH 272, with maybe Spark of Life taking place during those issues and "The Genesis Portal" story from Sonic Super Special taking place after all of them? I'm just trying to piece this thing together because there's a lot of stories here that seem interrelated. I know it'll be definitive when they actually come out, but I prefer knowing a chronological order going into this stuff. Didn't matter last time when it was just "this is what Sonic's doing, this is what Mega Man's doing, Universe is still telling side stories".

If that Universe issue got EIGHT!!! variant covers, I shudder to think of how many variants issues of Worlds Unite are going to have.

I mean even trade releases are getting variants now. Just... wow...

Universe #75 is going to be released before Sonic #272 so I'm assuming they go in that order.

Yes we are.

What is this obsession with variants, anyways? I know collectors get them, but I doubt the average comic buyer grabs more than one copy, regular cover or variant.

Sonic and Chip going to Apotos to investigate Gaia Gates? Looks like we're finally entering the actual Unleashed territory!

Interesting to see that Knuckles is hanging out with the Freedom Fighters in the aftermath of "Champions". I wonder how long that'll last?

I also wonder where Sonic and Metal Sonic would be going that would apparently mess with Sonic so much. The Special Zone? The way it's described in that synopsis almost makes me think of something similar to the Anti-Zone/Moebius. But I doubt we'll ever see something like that again, so that's a slim possibility. :? Either way, hopefully this will be as good as the last SU issue to focus on a conflict with Metal Sonic, except without the forever unresolved cliffhanger.

Apotos? Sonic and Chip together on an adventure? Now it's really starting to look like an Unleashed adaption :D .

Looks like Knuckles will be sticking with the FF for the time being, which is cool. I guess that means the hunt for the Master Emerald Shards will be handled in the main book alongside the main storyline? Though RadRed89 makes a good point that however long it lasts is anyone's guess...

"Everybody's Super Sonic Racing" in Boom still looks pretty fun :) .

Kinda funny that the Universe anniversary issue, and the one right before things head into a major crossover, is another standalone issue starring Metal Sonic just like #50 was. I wonder how much of that was intentional? Still, a whole issue dedicated to Sonic vs. Metal Sonic has the potential to be really awesome. And those variants are pretty cool as well, and congratulations to Universe on reaching #75 8) .
