Spaz is doing the interior art as well as the cover. Silver changing the timeline sounds quite likely, but I don't think that's it...

Whoa, that is the best cover ever!
Well to me, it looks like a reboot. If Ian said it isn't (could someone post a link to where he confirmed this?), then it may be a temporary reboot for a few issues.

Veeery interesting indeed. SA Sonic head design atop the classic Sonic body design. Quirky blend there. :)

As for the issue content, I'm more than just a tad concerned here. Reboot or not, it kinda feels like everything we've been used to in the series is beng ripped out from under our feet here. Normally I'm fine with breaking new ground, and yet........ :shock:

Can't find it, but there is what Dub said in this thread:

if it were a reboot, wouldn't the issue number be #1 and the name of the comic be slightly changed to reflect on that, much like whenever Marvel and DC did their reboots?

I think the comic means "an all-new beginning (to a story)", considering Robotnik is finally back after a 25 issue (2 years+) hiatus.

I think the cover looks kinda bad actually. I think it may just be the inking that does it.. But I am still excited for it.

Very interesting. I really have no comments to make. We know it's not a reboot, but it's an adaptation of Sonic 1. My brain hurts.

I'm so excited but so utterly confused at this point. And I like that... Really. I'm glad this isn't an RF situation where we all knew #200 was going to be a fight between Sonic and Dr. Robotnik, Sonic was going to win, Dr. Robotnik was going to lose, and then the Iron Queen was going to take over for a bit. Seriously, we had #200 figured out.

This milestone has me completely stumped. I got the Naugus taking over and relaunch of the Death Egg bit, but HOW OH HOW is this all going to lead into this Genesis, this seemingly retelling of classic Sonic!?

I already know this is going to be great. I can't wait to see Eggman start capturing Flickies, Rickies, Cluckies, and junk. :D

I've loved all the character development that's been established over the years, so truthfully a spike of fear went through my heart when I read the summary. It feels like a reboot ( I know it was said it isn't), And of course we won't know until 225, but I can't help but feel worried.

I'm a little puzzled myself on what to make of this.

I scrolled down the cover slowly and this was my response.

I found the cover distinctly lacking in Eggman.

It's meant to look like the Sonic 1 coverart, which didn't have Eggman on it.
