SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #205
“On the Run Part One”: Bunnie is back, but worse for wear with her wounds being tended in the hospital.  Luckily, her friends are by her side… but not for long, as a less-than-lucid Eggman attacks in his Egg-Tortoise walker!  Sonic and Tails spring into action, while Iron Queen and crew watch with wide eyes.  Why are they so interested in seeing Eggman captured?  It’s the start of a new pulse-pounding tale guest-starring Nicole, Antoine, Monkey Khan, Espio and more!
