"The Shattered World Saga" has been running through Archie Action's Sonic The Hedgehog for over two years and has redefined the kind of stories that can be told with everyone's favorite furry speedster, but this week the epic multi-part storyline is finally coming to an end. Ahead of the release of Sonic The Hedgehog #287 by Ian FlynnTracy Yardley, Terry Austin, Gabriel Cassata and John Workman, Archie Action has provided us a look at the final part of the biggest Sonic story ever.

Dark Gaia is ascendant and there are horrible Lovecraftian monsters attacking the world, and the only people that can stop it are Super Sonic, Chip, and the rest of the Freedom Fighters in a last battle that not everyone's coming home from! The issue also features --- for the first time ever --- a "Super Variant" by the title's longtime editor Vincent Lovallo.
