So remember how a couple weeks ago, I said that Sonic the Hedgehog continuity was so weird that you could pretty much tell me anything about it and I would have no reason to doubt you? Well buckle up, kids, because our friends at Archie just sent over a preview of their next paperback collection of Sonic stories, and it's a weird one. In this particular story, Sonic becomes a werewolf. Er, werehog? Werewolfhog? Listen, it's probably for the best if you just check out the preview below!

Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions, graphic novels and collectibles going on sale in February 2017 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s superhero line and the mature readers Vertigo imprint.
Riri Williams' origin as the armored Iron Man successor Ironheart continues in Invincible Iron Man #2 by Brian Michael Bendis and Stefano Caselli. In the first issue, we saw some of Riri's childhood and learned about a recent tragedy in her life. But even with the last page reveal of the A.I. based on Tony Stark, she's not quite Ironheart yet. In classic Bendis tradition, this origin is taking its time.
Just when you thought Dick Grayson couldn't get any dreamier, along comes Nightwing #10. After throwing down with (and being turned into) a horrifying giant monster in the "Night of the Monster Men" crossover, the next issue finds Dick relaxing at home on a rare night off, catching up with some of his favorite pop culture -- and that means that we get to see Dick Grayson reading his favorite comic. And it's pretty much exactly what you think it is.
Oh, and he's also moving to his new home of Blüdhaven, and there'll probably be some crime-fighting in there, too. Check out a preview now.
Help me out here, folks: What's the better short and pithy way to say that Ninjak, Valiant's deadliest secret agent ninja assassin, has had his body taken over by the same nanites that power Bloodshot, Valiant's deadliest and most indestructible soldier? I mean "Ninjak just got Bloodshot" is more accurate, but it's vague and doesn't really work unless you change it to "Bloodshotted" or something. "Bloodshot just got Ninjak'd," on the other hand, is a much better phrase, but doesn't quite have the ring of what's actually going on.
Ah, you know what? Forget it. Just read Bloodshot USA #2 when it comes out next week, or check out the preview below to see for yourself what happens when Bloodshot and Ninjak get Ninjak'd and Bloodshot!
In Blue Beetle #3, by Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins, Jaime Reyes is one young man facing 150 alien bugs. Fortunately for him, he's a bit of an alien bug himself, thanks to his extraterrestrial Blue Beetle armor. But he's still outmanned, or "outbugged" as the cover puts it, and he's missing the support of his mentor, Ted Kord. It also doesn't help that these vaguely human-shaped space bugs, known as Horde (no article), share a hive mind, which means the attack as one. Despite their number of bodies, this might make them more coordinated than Blue Beetle, considering Jaime and his armor don't always agree on what to do.
The deadliest woman in the galaxy is getting her own series from Guardians of the Galaxy movie screenwriter Nicole Perlman and artist Marco Checchetto. Gamora #1 promises insight into how the once-favored daughter of Thanos gained her impressive representation, and why she became a hero instead of the assassin she was raised to be.
Jem and the Holograms #21, by Kelly Thompson and Meredith McClaren, finds the Holograms' drummer Shana living out her dream of working in fashion in Milan, but the reality is not turning out to be as dreamy as she'd hoped. It turns out her fashion internship seems to consist mostly of fetch food for unfriendly designers at all hours of the night, and of course she's also homesick for the three bandmates who are also her sisters.
Check out our exclusive preview to see what's in store.
The stage set for the next great Ninjak epic, and Matt Kindt and Marc Laming are taking on a handful of psychologically interesting characters who all share a piece of Ninjak's past in "The Seven Blades of Master Darque." Check out a preview!
Thanks to Civil War II, the Guardians of the Galaxy are grounded on Earth and for Peter Quill that means he's stuck on his homeworld for the first time in decades. While his situation might be grim, his new ongoing series should be anything but, thanks to the creative team of Chip Zdarsky and Kris Anka, and Marvel has provided us with a preview of Star-Lord #1.
