I see some folks are starting to get it, so up goes the thread. The mad dash to the end of the Shattered World Saga begins here!

They are? I've only seen people discussion the previews, not the issue as a whole...

Maybe they've been discussing it in circles we don't usually see. Like 4Chan.

Just got mine in today, actually.

You know, oddly, the issue being split into two ten-page stories made it feel longer than it really was. Both stories used their page space well, and were pretty enjoyable. Not amazing, but they worked much better than I expected.


Anyway, since this is the spoiler thread, some tidbits for everyone without giving away too much unprompted:
- It's hard to tell in the preview since they looked like they could've been shadows there, but Tundra's got two great big scars on his head.
- Chip still has just as much of a love for food as he does in Unleashed.
- There's a brief WU flashback for Eggman where we see half of the back of Wily's head, and a behind shot of Xander. That's more cameo leway than I thought they'd get, which is nice.
- As the solicit implies, Eggman's story isn't just him sitting around. He heads off through a Genesis Portal to retrieve Metal Sonic. ("For my empire! For Science!")
- The place Metal Sonic got trapped is called the Distant Abyss Zone. And it's not uninhabited. Eggman brings out a certain old mech to fight off a giant eel monster.
- Not spoiling who it is (come on, it's the first few posts of the topic), but there's a certain two surprise cameos at the end, setting up a new plotline.

Yeah, but this topic is for spoiling, so it doesn't matter if it's a few posts or a few hundred.

...Pretty please?

Fine, fine. Because I love you all so very much, I went and did some scans for you guys. Enjoy.

Was going to get a better shot of Tundra, but I ran out of time to use the scanner. Sorry.

Man, Evan is really on point this month. The previews were pretty good, but those scans are gorgeous. Thanks for the tease.

My my, this issue gets more interesting all the time.

The Tundra reveal was pretty much expected, but I'm not going to complain-if we're not getting Beauregard back it's nice to see another Knothole Freedom Fighter dealing with the fact that a close relative is working for Eggman. I'm kinda curious as to whether any sort of Freedom Fighter group exists in Artika given the loss of the Arctic Freedom Fighters, but I'm guessing it'll be a while-if ever-before we find out. On a similar note, I wonder what the story is behind the absence of Georgette Tundra's wife/Rotor's mother, and whether it plays at all into Tundra's attitude towards Rotor and his decision to join Eggman. Also, I'm liking Orbot more and more, particularly since he's smart enough to point out that Eggman PURPOSEFULLY made him annoying. I also continue to love how Ian keeps adding new elements while still making a point of incorporating stuff from the games like Cool Edge.

And those two surprise cameos...it's about time.

Didn't we already know that? He's ate quite a bit since debuting.

Well I imagine Xander not technically being a Capcom Character gives him a touch more leeway than others.

Sounds interesting can't wait to get it.

I just noticed is Wendy a rogue Egg Boss? The front of her skirt seems to have the white checkered pattern that Egg Boss outfits do.

About Tundra...

Spoiler: show
I thought Ian said that he wasn't Rotor's dad? Or am I thinking of someone else?


Real piece of work, that guy, the sorry hypocrite... I wonder if there will ever be some sort of "redemption" arc, or at least opening his eyes.
