It's weird seeing preview pages of an issue I already bought digitally nearly two months ago...

What the hell is wrong with this thread? Every time I try to reply it automatically attempts to quote TheFatPanda and VEDJ-F.

Well hello there... http://comicsalliance.com/archie-action-releases-for-april-2016-solicitations/

Like the return of the connecting covers thing again, but Dan's art just doesn't work for me, but Diana Skelly's doing the interior, so I'm probably the happiest camper here regardless. :P 

The SU arc sounds cool.  Was hoping Might and Ray could tag along, since Knux meets them in a back up earlier, but it should be fun all the same.

Looks like the end of the Shattered World arc is in a few months...after almost three years. XD But its good to see so many characters turning up in the finale, like the Witchcarters and Battle Bird Armada. Those birds probably are having a jolly old time hovering over the destroyed world in their fortress. :P

...is that the Hidden Palace Zone from Sonic 2?

It's interesting to see the final chapter be Panic in the Sky. Hopefully we see Speedy and Tails' rivalry reemerge here, and hopefully confirmation that The Tails Adventure is still canon. It's pretty cool how they're book-ending the saga, as TV Tropes would put it by having a similar connecting four part cover to Countdown to Chaos, which seems to be the same general idea here as well, with Sonic blasting through the covers while we see both heroes and villains duke it out.

Uuuuuuh, who is that purple creature in the bottom right corner of #284?

Darn he's ugly. judging by his head I'm guessing he's a wolf but...he has cheek fur shape like Tails(fox)/Fang(wolf-weasel)'s which is good, but then have the circular cheek slapped on top.

He looks like a chimera with an Silver's body and Knuckles's head, and this is the artist's fault but his body is too big for his head. 

EDIT:

Ok so he's supposed to be the obscure wolf character from Skypatrol...he looks so different from the SU#86 variant. But either way its a terrible design. They changed the rabbit and witch's designs but didn't put the same amount of effort to make him more like a Sonic-verse wolf.

Ehh, to be honest, we haven't seen him outside of covers yet, so we have yet to see him in action, or what his personality will be, so it be best to wait and see what they do with him.

(They might even change his and the others' names, because I don't think "Focke-Wulf" will really be used)

Why wouldn't they use the name of a defunct German aircraft maker?
