Review of the Week: Sonic Universe #53

If you haven't already, check out my reviews for parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. So this issue starts with Eggman and Wily starting to sweat over the progress our heroes are making. Each thinks to themselves that they will betray the other when things go too far South. Meanwhile Mega Man, Sonic, Tails, and Rush are ambushed by the Roboticized Knuckles and Amy. While they manage to give our two blue heroes more trouble than the previous Roboticized Masters they are still de-roboticized by Mega Man and he absorbs their powers. Proto Man and the Chaotix manage to find the Wily Egg. On the Wily Egg Rouge the Bat is captured by Bass and Metal Sonic but not before she released the Chaos Devil, which is some sort of blob monster. Eggman and Wily manage to cage the Chaos Devil again and take Rouge to be roboticized. We then cut to Roll on Mega Man's world in Dr. Light's lab. Duo shows up wanting to help. I don't really know anything about him but I guess I'll learn in upcoming issues.

The cover is rather misleading as our heroes don't actually fight the Chaos Devil nor do we even really learn much about it. It feels like the story is finally getting somewhere after a few issues of being stuck in the "Fight Roboticized Master, rinse repeat" pattern it had fallen in. Despite its flaws this is still one of the most enjoyable comic book events in a couple of years and if you're not reading it you should be.
