While Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis arc has yet to begin, with the prelude issue #225 just hitting stands, the cover for the third part of the saga has just been revealed! Issue #228 is inspired by the American cover art for Sonic the Hedgehog 3, just as the pervious two issues were inspired by Sonic 1 and 2. Here is the official description:
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #228
"Genesis" Part Three:
The most talked-about story in Sonic comic history continues as Sonic brings a curious new face into his adventures: Miles Prower, the boy genius!
