Official Solicitation[]

'Bust out your detective hats and hop on the case in ‘The Great Chaos Caper,’ Part 3. Knuckles and the Chaotix are in the heart of the Aquatic Mines-where their only two options are to get crushed by a cave-in, or to drown! How on earth (and below earth!) can they make it out alive? And once they do, they’ve got to chase down the unlikely Chaos Emerald thief before Nack’s team of Hooligans beat them to it! Add in ravenous Dark Gaia Monsters, and there may be too much for our heroes to handle! Featuring new cover art from Sonic comic guru Tracy Yardley and an awesome SEGA game art variant starring the Chaotix!

Story One[]

The Great Chaos Caper: Part Three -"Chip off the Ol' Emerald!"

The Chaotix and Knuckles are stunned by the appearance of the strange creature with its Chaos Emerald cargo, with Knuckles recognizing it as the spirit he has been seeking. However, the small creature is terrified by their presence and flies off, prompting the detectives to take off after him. Vector and the others tries to catch the escapee and recover the Emerald per Princess Sally's request, but after cornering him are halted by an irate Knuckles. The stunned spirit is surprised to learn that Knuckles is there to protect him, and overjoyed to learn that the Chaotix are seeking the Chaos Emerald in order to help save the world.


Key Events[]

  • Knuckles decides to let Chip tag along, but Team Hooligan take the small fella hostage and demand the Chaos Emerald.
  • Back on Angel Island, Relic and Fixit discover a strange looking plant in Mushroom Hill, which little do they know, was planted by Eclipse the Darkling.
  • Knuckles frees Chip from Team Hooligan, and tells him to head for Angel Island with the Emerald, but a Dark Gaia Titan prevents him from doing so, and both him and the emerald end up back in Team Hooligan's possession.
  • Knuckles and Team Chaotix end up being caved in with the Dark Gaia Titan.


Background Information[]

  • The background graphics for the variant cover are from the title screen of the Sega 32X game Knuckles Chaotix.
  • When Knuckles introduces himself to Chip, his exact wording is "You can call me Knuckles", before Charmy adds "Unlike Sonic, he doesn't chuckle!" This is yet another reference to the lyrics of Knuckles theme song from the Sonic Adventure games, "Unknown from M.E." with the above exchange being a near exact paraphrasing of the lyrics.
  • The first two scenes in the Off-Panel are taken from the games Knuckles Chaotix and Sonic Heroes.
