IDW Publishing has revealed a preview of Sonic the Hedgehog Vol. 9: Chao Races & Badnik Bases, out today from writer/artist Evan Stanley, artist Adam Bryce Thomas, colorist Reggie Graham, and letterer Shawn Lee.
‘Fan-favorite artist Evan Stanley takes over as writer! A new storyline begins, perfect for new readers, as Sonic races to help a friend in need! Hold on to your chili dogs, Sonic fans! The Metal Virus is gone, but things aren’t back to normal.
Omega is damaged, and his allies turn to Sonic for help. The only way to rebuild him is to trade parts with a mysterious champion Chao racer, so it’s off to the races for Cream, Cheese, Amy, and Rouge! They’ll have to keep up their winning streak or surrender Cheese to Clutch’s evil… clutches!
Meanwhile, Sonic and Tails are being watched by a mysterious figure in Dr. Eggman’s seemingly abandoned base, but when Rouge’s team calls for help, will this shadowy character prove friend or foe? Please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times, folks, this is going to be a bumpy one!’
