For Halloween Comic Fest 2013 (think of it like Free Comic Book Day in October), the publisher will be releasing the official prequel to Lost World that will introduce gamers to the new Sonic villains, the Deadly Six, that will force him to team up with his arch nemesis, the nefarious Eggman.
Here's the official solicitation info from Archie:
