New Sonic The Hedgehog Comic Takes A Trip Down Memory Lane

The legacy lives on

Sonic the Hedgehog has so many comics made about him, it's surprising Disney hasn’t bought the rights to make the movies.

Last year Archie Comics released Sonic Legacy Series #1, a graphic novel which packed in issues 1-16 of the publisher's Sonic the Hedgehog comics, as well as issues 1-3 of the original Sonic miniseries; the long wait for the next one is finally over with the release of Sonic Legacy Series #2 on Wednesday.

Legacy #2 will cram in issues 17-36, and represents some of the earliest stories in the series. This of course means Sonic will be looking all retro as he’ll resemble the blue ’hog from the ill-fated TV series Sonic SatAM. Unfortunately he won’t be blue at all, as Legacy #2 is designed as a catch up for those new to the comic series and is therefore all in black and white.

Also out on Wednesday is Sonic Universe #46, which sees the Chaotix gang (including Vector) searching for their missing buddies, Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel.

Sonic Legacy Series #2 will set you back around $15, which isn’t bad at all considering how many issues are packed in there. Will you be looking to get hold of it?
