Humble Bundle: Archie Comics and Sonic the Hedgehog

Posted on June 22, 2016 by Jason Nason

As someone who doesn’t use my PC for gaming, Humble Bundle has been pretty useless for me for the most part. Most of the bundles that I’ve seen have been for Steam keys, which I can’t use. Though recently I took advantage of the “Friends of Nintendo” bundle which allowed me to get eShop codes for a bunch of games.

Now Archie Comics is getting on board to make digital versions of their Sonic the Hedgehog comics available.

In celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog‘s 25th Anniversary, Humble Bundle and Archie Comics are offering up a big digital collection of Sonic the Hedgehog comics! The Humble Comics Bundle: Sonic the Hedgehog features hundreds of pages of action-packed excitement from the longest-running video game comic book in history.Read More

SEGA unveiled their next Sonic project with the announcement of Sonic Boom, two new games coming exclusively to the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS systems. But the announcement was more than just that with the revelation that the company is co-producing a new television series as well.

Sonic the Hedgehog has spawned more than 70 video game titles and four animated series since launching way back in June 1991. This year, SEGA is introducing a new branch of the Sonic universe, entitled Sonic Boom, that will debut a new look for Sonic and friends. The worlds of the TV series and videogame will share a common narrative and a number of location and stylistic similarities reflecting full collaboration between videogame, TV series partners and SEGA from the outset.

The Sonic Boom television series, co-produced by SEGA of America Inc. and OuiDO! Productions, will debut on Cartoon Network in the U.S. The series is an ensemble comedy consisting of 52 x 11-minute standalone episodes. Every episode starts from a small character-driven story and explodes into an epic tale of saving the world, robot battles and more.
