Not to be outdone but that other blue upstart, Sonic is getting his own comic variant exclusive to the San Diego Comic-Con. Well, scratch that -- Sonic doesn't actually feature. The sketch variant that Archie is making available is Sonic Universe #41, which kicks off a new story arc that stars a Secret Freedom Fighters team led by... Silver the Hedgehog.

Yeah, yeah, Silver the Hedgehog. He's been getting his nose into other people's business ever since 2006, but what can you do? In his new threads and new position of leadership, the best we can hope for is that he pulls a Raiden and starts dicing up fools like onions. Something tells me that's not gonna happen.

The cover, done by artist Ben Bates, is pretty spiffy, nonetheless. And look! A Metal Sonic is on the team! That's nuts! And he has a Mega Buster, for some reason. Speaking of which, check back to my post on the Mega Man SDCC variant, which has been updated with a higher-res version of that comic's cover done by Patrick Spaziante.
