The final dash to fix the world begins, Eggman's brawl against the Naugus twins draws to a close, and Sonic Boom returns!

Oh wow. If Eggman gets into a fight and brawls HIMSELF instead of from his machines, I am going to LOVE it. Amazing covers !

Oh and, what the frak is this Crystal Sonic ? Naugus controled Metal Sonic ?

Crystal Sonic could use a more interesting design than a recolor, and I'm increasingly less sold on the ten page stories as we go, but this looks pretty fun. Turning Metal Sonic crystal to control him is a neat little idea, but I want to see the Wendy Witchkart minions in a different perspective as they look a bit bland here.

*#283.

Also, the Digest seems like a wasted opportunity. They've said they hope to have new Boom stories in the Digests and Magazines, the latter is now defunct, the Digests finally get a Boom-focused cover with new art and...nothing.

Also SU#86 has some funny things in common with Scrambled part 4, such as Eggman donning armour to fight a lackey, and Conquering Storm getting more limelight out of the Egg Bosses.

I wonder how Cream factors into the plan.

And the central hero to it all is… Cream?!

For reals? This is legit?
...
FIN-AL-LY!!! Oh my GAWD! I'm sorry but my patience on waiting for Archie!Cream to do IMPORTANT stuff had become paper-thin by this point and finally you're having her do something Ian! I don't even care if I have to wait til March I'm just happy to know it's coming soon! I would give you, Ian, a million thanks right now but, of course, I need to see if this is the moment I've been waiting five years for first. If it is, then I'm giving those million thanks and I'll renounce every bit of criticism I had for Archie!Cream's handling. Well, except the band-aid moment in StH 274. I'm afraid I'm not going to live that one down

Other than that, everything else seems good. Seems the other Freedom Fighters introduced are going to participate in the finale, which is definitely going to be interesting!
Spoiler: show
I wonder what "role" the Shamar Freedom Fighters are going to play, given that they are in cahoots with the enemy...

That Eggman's Dozen Variant is ... interesting.

Seriously stop that, Thunderbolt.

So it seems that Eggman tosses the idea about Teamwork and takes matters into his own hands. In the literal sense. If not for that being exactly the type of thing that I'd expect Eggman to do then I would have been disapointed.

It seems that I have reached the bottom of my care about Sonic the Hedgehog. Both of the covers look bland and seem to be lacking Cream despite her being called out in the solict? And now Eggman is going to stall for time because this arch hasn't already a drag.

I hope he fails. I hope he fails so we can just get on with it.

Do we know who that rabbit lady in the variant is? (I THINK she's a rabbit?)

Carrotia, from Tails Skypatrol. Heavily redesigned, obviously.

Hey yeah! Why isn't Cream in either covers!? For gawd's sake, you guys had Big the Cat on numerous covers but in the issue where Cream FINALLY does something she ain't on the cover? ...Meh, at least she's getting to do something in the story. I'll let this slide.

I honestly hope Eggman fails too. Shattered World Crisis has gone on long enough.

The main StH cover is one of the most awesome I've seen in a long while. Don't see what adding Cream would add to it at all.

Huh, you're right!

I searched for her design and found a neat-looking fan redesign, too. http://drawloverlala.deviantart.com/art ... -448912568

Curious about this too. I'm glad she'll finally get to play a role in this adventure, and I'm also wondering how this will work.

The blue thing in the top-right and the bear in the bottom left are also from Tails Sky Patrol.

I meant more on the variant since there is space for her.

They already have the Five People team made, since it is a Guardians of the Galaxy reference.
