As it turns out, The Next Level was not the only comic Archie covered in their newest press release; the final installment of Sonic Mega Drive’s story has been announced as Sonic Mega Drive: Overdrive!

At the moment, theirs no full solicitation, but what Vincent Lovallo has revealed about it is that Sonic and his friends are on the hunt for the Chaos Emeralds to stop Dr Eggman’s Mega Drive weapon for good, and there’s bound to be hijinks along the way with 10 pages extra for the story! You can expect to see this around March 2017, so full details will likely be released in December.

Keep that party mood for the 25th anniversary going with these comic love letters to the old games, while you also wait for Sonic Mania’s release to arrive!

During my teenage years, Girls’ Camp was the only time and place I felt like I belonged with other Mormons. At school I was sarcastic, bookish, and weird, but at camp I convinced younger girls to leap from our canoe in the middle of the lake and tip over others. I led prank wars: stealing bras and stringing them up the flagpole, twist-tying tent zippers closed at night, putting saran wrap over latrine seats. I brought a backpack stuffed w/vintage clothes and wigs that my tent-mates and I wore to the evening firesides, soliciting hoots and applause.
There were no boys to impress, no male authority figures hovering, and we were feral and hysterical and bold. I was in love with everyone, including myself.
Testimony Meeting was on the last night of camp. We sat around the campfire and took turns standing and saying variations of the same words: “I know the church is true. I know Heavenly Father loves me.” Everyone cried. I stood and said the same, feeling like a fraud. No tingling feelings warmed my heart. I was an outsider again.

AVC: What are some of the themes you’re planning to explore in Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier?

Kot: Besides the ones I already named—fluid identity and fluid gender. Many worlds theory, maybe. Feminism. Taoism. Pacifism. Nature and the systems we impose on it. Life in space. Empathy. Power unrestrained and power controlled. The Randian belief in the vampire self/20th century capitalism, what it brings, what can come after. Did I mention empathy? I know I did. I’ll mention it again.


Anakin: Now that I’m with you again, I’m in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you - I can’t breathe. I’m haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating, hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me.
