COVER (features spoiler):

Script: Nigel Kitching
Art: Richard Elson
Lettering: Ellie De Ville

Robotnik has lured the terrible Chaos creature to his mountain retreat and gathered the Chaos Emeralds allowing him to grow into the almighty Perfect Chaos. Despite the pleas of assistant Grimer, it is clear that Robotnik has NO PLAN - he has gone completely insane and believes he is setting up the end of the world. He may be right. Sonic, Knuckles, Tails and Amy seemed to be at the mercy of Perfect Chaos when Super Sonic and Ebony arrived. A far cry from his days as a world-destroying demon of incredible Chaos energy, Super Sonic's energy is now almost up and he needs the Chaos Emeralds to regenerate. He leaps into Perfect Chaos, a clash of the Chaos creatures that need the Chaos Energy to survive. PICK UP THE LATEST ISSUE FOR THE STUNNING CONCLUSION! Not to mention some BIG surprises!
