Sonic the Hedgehog: Free Comic Book Day Edition 2007

Sonic the Hedgehog: Free Comic Book Day Edition #1 (Archie Comics)
By Ian Flynn & Tracy Yardley

I am constantly amazed by the fact that Archie‘s Sonic the Hedgehog comic has lasted as long as it has — almost 175 issues and still going strong. Celebrating that groundbreaking run (undoubtedly the longest-running video game comic ever), Archie is giving us an all-new Sonic adventure for this year’s Free Comic Book Day. Sonic is captured by his old enemy Dr. Eggman, and an inmplant in his ear sends him into battle against his friends. The result is a pretty good comic that introduces Sonic and most of his supporting cast — a great introduction to the characters for new readers. Also wisely, the book ends not exactly on a cliffhanger, but on a particularly ominous note that would seem to be setting up some unpleasantness for Sonic in future issues of his own comic. Archie does more consistently entertaining all-ages comics than anyone in the business, and the Sonic comics are a nice reminder that you can have all-ages adventure comics along with the comedies. Kudos to Archie — this is a really pleasant offering.
