Did someone say new solicits?

SONIC is in the FIGHT FOR HIS LIFE in—"Face of the Enemy" Part Two: Sonic and his friends are at the mercy of Egg Boss Nephthys and her Egg Army! They came to rescue a Gaia Key Guardian-but can they manage to escape with their lives?! Then, in the finale to "Hidden Costs," revelations abound! Sally and Clove both think their plans have succeeded-but at what cost? Featuring cover art by jamming Jamal Peppers and Sonic CG artist supreme Rafa Knight!

SONIC UNIVERSE #82
Script: Evan Stanley
Art: Tracy Yardley, Jim Amash, Jack Morelli & Matt Herms
Cover: Evan Stanley
Variant Cover: T. Rex
On Sale Date: 11/25
32-page, full color comic
$3.99 U.S

ENTER THE FINAL FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE! "The Silver Age" part four: The finale to Silver's latest adventure! Silver simply doesn't have the might to stop the creature menacing his time. Maybe the combined brain power of Gold and Prof. von Schlemmer can help! It's a knock-down, drag-out fight for the fate of the future with a shocking ending you'll never see coming-even if you're psychic! Featuring cover art by the "Silver Age" writer herself, Evan Stanley, plus a special "Movie Poster Variant" by the terrific T. Rex!


Also, fixed some errors on the first solicit. Aleah got skipped and Rafa was credited for the variant cover when it's signed by JenHen, Martin, and Hunzeker.

That Universe cover is beautiful, although the perspective threw me off at first. I thought it was a shot of Silver right up close with Gold and VS in the distance/background, before I realised the latter are in front of Silver's boot.

The idea of Silver being assisted by little pocket Gold and VS is fun too I guess :P

Yep, giant Silver. That's normal.

Also hey, new character images on the regular Sonic cover. I guess those are in the group the last solicit talked about. I've done some Googling, and Nephthys was a figure in Egyptian mythology. She represented death while her sister Isis represented rebirth, but her description makes it sound like she was benevolent, not just Egyptian girl Disney Hades. It also says she was depicted as a bird, so I don't think the Sonic version is on that cover.

Edit: Then again, bottom left person does seem to have that sinister air to them, and the covered eyes and rounded cheeks mean that you can't gauge gender at first glance. Maybe that is her, or just a very stoic member of the good guys.

I think Aleah went uncredited again.

Bottom right character has some similar traits to Ruby the Raccoon. Weird coincidence there.

We're getting an awful lot of female bosses in this new universe.
Spoiler: show
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

(hearty laughter) can't wait to see what excuse they make for Silver being huge!

I like what I've been seeing from the previews of this Silver story arc. Quite a different look on Silver's future.

No probably the name on the solicit fell into a genesis portal seems stuff has been doing that a lot these days.

With the 279 variant I can't help but think of the beginning of the 5th One Piece opening. Now I can't help but wonder who each of those new faces on the default are.

Nephthys isn't featured on the covers. She'll remain a surprise... for now.
