I read on Newsarama that the fallout of the Metal Virus Saga will be on season 3, but still, this arc is so good, it would feel rushed if it ended abruptly, without Knuckles, and maybe there is time to introduce my favorite cha… wait a minute, under Silver, is that… who I think it is???

Still looks like a random villager. I can't make it out due to the resolution. It just gets blurry when I try to zoom in.

Maybe but would they really put a random villager in a major cover?

 B. Shadow is unable to burn it off because his jet boots is the cause of his speed, unlike Sonic who naturally runs that fast.

 

Now that's be a clever attention to detail..

That cover is beautiful. I'm curious who the artist is because if it's someone familiar, for once I can't place it...

Yeah, I can't quite recall it either. 

Edit: Is it Ryan Jampole?

Spoiler

What, something undecipherable at the moment?

Yes, as they have two or three times before.

Yes! I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees her, considering the fact I'm completely biased.

We noticed. 

Anyway, from what little I can make out, I do see a silhouette reminiscent of a stag beetle's pincer. 

EDIT: I've looked closely and can confirm 

Spoiler

I can't see shit. 

At best, it looks like a face stuffed in a gun barrel with a dark claw under it.

The Metal Virus Arc continuing into 2020 actually makes sense now that I think about it. Mr. Flynn did seem to be clueless as to what exactly will come after it.

I'm gonna plead the fifth and say it's not supposed to be anyone important.

I also spy Amy, plus Tangle with her tail in the background? 

I'm saying Sticks because of the boomerang head, Blaze is not in the arc so far, and that character has the eyes open so it's not Whisper.

You what, actually being able to see any eyes would help a lot.

So what do you think about Shadow getting infected?

 

That this really should be still spoiler?

I would be quite angry right now, if somebody else didn't spoiled that few months ago. Can we just treat every info about unreleased  yet issue as spoilers?

So far I've been informed about every major plot point of this arc months in advance.

Well firstly - that should be spoiler tagged, the issue hasn't even released yet.

Secondly - 

Spoiler

It's the boldest choice they've gone with yet, and might actually hold some water in terms of shaking things up. I still really want Sonic to end up changing saving his friends, but for now, Shadow works best on a narrative level. He's the one who warned Sonic about letting Eggman run amok, and now Shadow's the one who's paying the price. On top of that, Shadow can very easily keep up with Sonic himself. 

You know how I've been mentioning that Eggman should be aiming to infect Sonic so Sonic can spread the virus for him quickly and worldwide? Shadow being infected is that idea realised. Shadow is as fast as Sonic, along with chaos abilities. Shadow could infect whole cities within the span of a minute. I'm calling it now that Shadow will be what causes the downfall of the Resistance, his power and speed is going to make about nearly every rescue operation moot.

I'd imagine Shadow's infection will also be a turning point for Eggman too. Shadow being a zombot and not listening to orders will make Eggman a near instant target IMO.

If they do something cool narratively fine. I just hope the whole zombie thing blows over soon. Because one of the things I like about these characters is agency, and this sort of narrative deprives them of that . There are ways to do that , that don't do that. MK10 and 11 did it the best , they were zombies who were reflections of the worst parts of the characters. So you got all their insecurities and shit, but it is what it is. Hopefully it isn't bad
