After 25 years of running around everywhere you'd think that Sonic the Hedgehog might slow down… turns out no. To celebrate his 25th anniversary Archie Comics is going to be releasing Sonic: Mega Drive #1 on July 6th.
"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."
