Switching gears from Mega Man, let's talk about Archie's other, much bigger videogame comic, Sonic the Hedgehog. This one might interest some of you non-Sonic comic fans, as it offers clues towards the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II.

Sonic Super Special is a quarterly magazine that covers the Archie Sonic universe. For the third issue, there will be a pair of special comic chapters included. The first is a Sonic CD adaptation, which is in fact a reprint that appeared in one of the earliest issues in the Archie Sonic chronology. The second is a prologue that leads up to the events in Episode II.

As of this moment, all we know of Episode II is that it relates somehow to Sonic CD and that Metal Sonic will feature prominently. The game is expected to release in the second half of this year, and the magazine should arrive this spring. If you are the kind of Sonic fan who dearly cares about the games' narrative and how it all ties together, this could possibly be worth your time.

Nerdist's spoof Star Fox trailer reminds me of the old Nintendo Power comic
