Woah, Sonic has gotten way darker than I remember him!

There is an infection running rife turning animals into Zombots while sonic himself is infected and his speed can’t fight it much longer. The others in the restoration are struggling to keep the virus at bay and stop it spreading but it doesn’t look good.

I don’t read sonic a lot but I am loving this darker tale. I’m used to the light and breezy Sonic where he easily beats Dr. Robotnik (Eggman) but not in this story, this is really testing Sonic as a hero it’s not going his way at all and he is in a way indirectly to blame so it’s is weighing on him, more so that they seem to be fighting a losing battle.

As much as Eggman seems to be winning he has actually no control over the Zombots anymore and it looks like he is away to have serious problems of his own in the form of a mutiny. I am sure Sonic will prevail in the end but I’m interested in how dark it will go before it gets better for the restoration, they are losing more members and may even lose Sonic. It will take something special to turn the tide in their favour and I may just have to keep reading to find out how they do it.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
