Sonic Archives #19 and Sonic Super Special Magazine #5 in stores now
Archie Comics continues to repackage old issues of the long-running Sonic the Hedgehog series into mass market paperback format for the sake of new fans who want to get up to speed as well as old fans who like to build towers out of their exhaustive comic collections. As of today, you can pick up Sonic Archives #19, which consists of issues #71-74.
This is an important milestone as it marks Sonic’s in-comic transformation from the old Genesis look to Mr. Green Eyes. Wanna know why his eyes changed color? He ran really f**kin’ fast. Not joking. This is DC Flash-level sh*t, people.
Also out today is Sonic Super Special Magazine #5, the next issue of the quarterly periodical that provides oodles of supplementary art and commentary. It includes pull-out posters of 24 different cover art pieces, as well as the fifth entry in “The Mobius Timeline,” which attempts to recap the insanely convoluted history of the comic. It’s quite the undertaking.
