This week sees the start of two new stories in Sonic The Hedgehog #280, published by Archie Action. After saving the Arid Sands Zone from Nephthys the Vulture, Sonic The Hedgehog is heading to Efrika in search of the next set of Gaia Keys, but he’s going to have to deal with a new foe in the form Axel, one of Eggman’s regional bosses. Aided by Miles “Tails” Prower and the guardian of light, Chip, Sonic must keep the bad guys busy while his friends sneak into their base and nab the keys!

Archie Action have provided us an exclusive preview of the first part of the new story “Keys To Victory” by Ian Flynn, Jamal Peppers, Terry Austin and Gabriel Cassata. We also have preview pages for the back-up story “A Special Occasion” starring Sally Acorn and Rotor The Walrus, by Flynn, Austin, Cassata and penciler Jennifer Hernadez.
