    Solicits for Sonic 282 and SU 85. Don't have time to copy everything over here right now, so check out the link for them.

    Short version: Chun-Nan boss fight, Knuckles and Mighty team up once again, Eggman can't tightrope like the Werehog.

    Geez, the thread's been dead for a month. Well, here, have the new solicits. This time, I'm not being lazy with them.

    Yeah their hasn't been much to talk about as of late due to the issues being delayed but I heard Universe did manage to get to people before the delay at least digitally.

    Think Silver fights Not!Time Eater in that, also heard it ends the whole arc on a cliffhanger. not sure about both things though.

    I like what they've been doing with the Egg Army. Having people follow Eggman because they feel they have no choice. Either let Eggman win, or let the world be destroyed by him and Sonic feuding.

    Of course, it makes more sense to, y'know, side with the team that's NOT aiming to enslave the world and let the sheer numbers beat Eggman, but hey, nobody accused the desperate of clear thinking.

    Dang, that paint-style cover of 283 is doing me real smooth. I need that as a poster.

    My apologies for the bump, but I'm wondering whether I am the only one who has yet to acquire Sonic Universe #82 and Sonic the Hedgehog #279?

    Sonic Universe #82 was originally supposed to be released at the end of November, (Over 4 weeks ago) but I still have yet to see it.
    The date has been put back a few times since then, with no explanation, and I'm starting to get worried. Same with Sonic the Hedgehog #279.

    I've messaged Archie Comics on Twitter and if I get a response, I'll share it here. I just wanted to check to see if I was the only one affected by this strange turn of events.

    You're not, my friends have also been asking Archie via Twitter to no response. They also had to push back Mega Man #55 for a while, if I recall.

    While we're here, the last Sonic trade we got was around April or May. Archie is really good at pushing this stuff back randomly without a word as to what is going on. It's bothersome.

    Arguably a bit off-topic, but it's relevant enough that I feel like the word should be spread over here:

    http://bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8615&start=0

    In short: On February 7th, Ian's forums will be locked, and on June 30th, they will be deleted entirely. He'll be continuing to maintain the main page and podcast, but otherwise, Bumbleking will be gone. He suggests saving anything you want to save between now and the end of June.



    EDIT 1/12/16: After a week of discussion, Ian's decided that, while he's still closing the forum, he won't be deleting it unless keeping it around as an archive causes problems for his site somehow.

    Seems Archie finally gave us some news:
    'The Silver Age concludes next Wednesday (1/13) in SONIC UNIVERSE #82!'
    Here: https://twitter.com/ArchieComics/status/684088220833939456

    Well, it's 6 weeks late, but it's finally coming. I do wonder what the hold-up was, though.

    No idea either, but it's getting bothersome. Any message I send them on Twitter about the constant delays is met with "Thank you for your feedback.". An actual explanation would be nice. The delays on the trades are also very annoying, there hasn't been a release since January/February LAST YEAR for Sonic and Mega Man. The Amazon release dates are putting future things into 2017 at this point. X_X

    Just confirmed by the Sonic Twitter/tumblr, Sonic Universe & Knuckles (#87) coming in May.

    Hopefully the accounts continue to advertise the comics, that's the one fault I believe Sonic social media has had since its resurgence.

    Seeing that art inspired me to photoshop it into a signpost. Hopefully it's enjoyable and not just forced meme.

    New solicits are up. The Battlebirds are finally back, and, uh... Maybe it's just this particular drawing, but that purple guy in the lower right of the main 284 cover looks really badly proportioned to me.

    Its just the art, I never heard of Dan Schoening & Luis Antonio Delgado before so they probably don't know how to Sonic too well.

    Is it me, or does that image of Knuckles and Amy look like they're in (Sonic 2) Hidden Palace (I'm not familiar with Sonic Universe)?
