Archie Comics is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog with a commemorative one-shot issue Sonic: Mega Drive #1.
Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose will set off on a brand new adventure taking on the villainous Dr. Eggman and his new destructive invention, the Megadrive. Sonic and his crew must stop the mad doctor and save the day.
“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 #1 will reunite the creative team behind the 2015 Worlds Unite event, writer Ian Flynn, artist Tyson Hesse, letterer Jack Morelli, and colorist Matt Herms.
“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.
