Considering how low my expectations are for Austin's inking lately, especially on Yardley's art, color me surprised. It still has some issues when compared to other inkers on the book (some rounded edges are squared off a tad), but it doesn't feel as rough or rushed as his more recent output.

It's not perfect, but Austin does seem to have improved with it no longer being completely jagged and all over the place.  Nevertheless, it does little to detract from Tracy's work here.  When he's in tip top form, the man's art is bulletproof.  However, I'm slightly confused whether or not Sonic knows of the gang in Knothole yet.  Was it already hinted he'd known them before the events of Sonic 1?

I has a theory:

 

  Reveal hidden contents

That's not King Acorn, it's Naugus.

In SU89 when he recalled everything leading up to 252, he said he "supplanted King Acorn as he had done before".

Since Naugus and the King were banished to the Special Zone together, I'll bet that Naugus took King Acorn's shape and was rescued in his place.

The fact that "King Acorn" is uncharacteristically annoyed at his own daughter hugging him is a big giveaway.

 

And here I was wondering whether this took place before or after the real Nigel was in the special zone. 

My mind is blown.

Isn't it weird that Snively is there with Eggman? Considering he's nowhere near Eggman is the present, last I saw he was working for G.U.N. ...

I think his back story stated that he was a spy? Working for Eggman and then secretly letting GUN what was happening?

Both are wrong. Snively originally worked with Eggman to send Naugus to the special zone, start a war between the kingdom of Acorn and G.U.N, and then robotoicize everyone when they're too busy. After Sonic and company stopped them, G.U.N was convinced by Snively that he had been kidnapped and was really trying to stop Eggman from enemy lines when he was really trying to take power alongside Eggman. When the whole mess with Eclipse ended, Snively got called for an interview to determine his true loyalties. What G.U.N doesn't know is that Snively's planning to steal the master emerald for a plan to take power.

Huh. I thought for sure the last part of Genesis of a Hero would cover Doomsday Zone. 

But you know what? I'm glad it's showing us the Knuckles fight instead. Honestly, I think Super Sonic has been showing up a bit too often these last five years: Genesis, Worlds Collide, Worlds Unite, and Panic in the Sky. (Granted, that last one has the excuse of staying true to the source material) I'm happy we're getting a major arc finale without him for a change. (I really hope he's not in Mega Drive: The Next Level, either.) 

Don't get me wrong- Super Sonic is cool and all, but scarcity is a major factor in value. The more he shows up, the less special it feels each time.

It's a Back to the Future reference.

As a massive Back to the Future fan, I feel so dense right now.  I guess the fact time travel isn't involved kind of threw me off.  Nevertheless, that is an awesome homage.  And it has Espio as Strickland.  Perfect.

So we're getting a Lobster mobian now? Lol, we're gonna have EVERY damn species represented if they can manage it, aren't we? Would rather have had Abyss as the main villain, provided she isn't around already. The Chaotix going up against an aquatic Egg Army would be interesting if you ask me.

Also (if true), NO DOOMSDAY?! IAN WHAT IN THE FLYING BLUE FUCK, MAN?! That is a golden moment for you!

Ah well, I ain't bitchin' too much for it. I've always felt that the problem with Super Sonic showing up is because everything put before him is hardly made as a challenge or threat. Moment he turns gold, everything becomes predictable - heck, Unleashed defying that was perhaps the most shocking moment in this franchise given that Super Sonic was essentially a God-Mode status.

*see's that there is Sonic Boom content in the Digest*

Either the two stories from the final issue are being stretched out over two Digests, or we're finally getting one of those new Boom stories we were promised all the back...one that they're not bothering to plug.
