Archie Comics has lifted the curtain on a special commemorative one-shot comic celebrating 25 year’s of SEGA’s blue blur! The issue speeds back to the early days of Sonic the Hedgehog and follows Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose on a brand new adventure taking on the villainous Dr. Eggman and his new nefarious tool of destruction — the MEGADRIVE.
“Not only is Archie Comics celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is also commemorating a milestone anniversary. With 25 years under the Blue Blur’s belt, we wanted to start the celebrations with something truly special,” said Editor Vincent Lovallo.
“The goal was to produce a story that hardcore fans would love, but also feel fresh and new for anyone looking to read a Sonic comic for the first time. The result is Sonic: Mega Drive #1.”
Sonic: Mega Drive reunites the creative team behind 2015’s WORLDS UNITE crossover event, as long-time Sonic writer Ian Flynn joins artist Tyson Hesse (Bravest Warriors, Diesel), letterer Jack Morelli and colorist Matt Herms for an action packed story for fans of all ages.
“With more surprises on the way for Sonic’s 25th Anniversary, fans are not going to want to miss this epic “Classic Sonic” story.” teased Lovallo.
The special issue goes on sale on July 6th in comic stores as well as in the Archie app. It will retail for $3.99 USD.
