Talk about making you feel old. Sonic the Hedgehog is about to see a "best of" trade. What's crazy is the comic series is almost twenty years old. There's a reason the comic has lasted that long. If you haven't been reading or have just recently started, next week we'll see a trade come out that will highlight some of Sonic's great adventures. Archie Comics has given us a first look at the release.

There isn't a lot of comics coming out next week so make sure you don't miss out on this.



After nearly twenty years of comics, specials and mini-series, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG has told hundreds of stories! Through the laughs and thrills, the action and adventure, the highs and lows, some stories stand out among the rest – presented here in this thematic graphic novel collection! From the titanic clash of “Mecha Madness” to the universe-shattering epic “Order from Chaos,” join us as the Archie Comics Sonic team picks their favorite stories from the history of the series! Don’t miss out on this deluxe collection available for the first time in soft cover – a must-have for any Sonic fan! Plus all-new cover art from Patrick “SPAZ” Spaziante and insights from the Sonic creative team!

Script: Ian Flynn

I remember being in middle school reading this series. Got-dang!

I still have a few issues stashed away somewhere. Yikes. Time flies, tastes change. I'm going to start buying these books for my bro and cousins. Sounds good. Can't wait for the crossover!

You know over here in the UK, there was also a Sonic comic. Very different to Archie version. Rich Elson used be on it. Who now works for Marvel. Recentaly did Amazing Spider-Man #698. And I believe he's also doing the new Morbius comic. Which is kind of ironic in a way. Because Sonic's home planet is also called Mobius. Spelt differently but sounds the same.

@TheGodofThunder: As do I! Mecha Madness blew my mind as a lad. Still one of my all-time favorite comic stories.

Hey, I just bought the Archive TPB that has that issue a few months ago!

20 years?!? I was 9 or 10 years old when it started! The very first issue I read was Issue #29Steel-Belted Sally WAAYY back when my library used to have a few free comics for kids to look at for fun!

Never understood how popular these comics are, but hey... I'm all for it!

There have been consistently good Sonic games released for years (even if many of them were on handhelds). And Generations and the new racing game are quite fun, as well. What I'm saying is, any way that Sonic gives people joy is fine by me.

I've always wanted to get into the Sonic series(comics). When I was younger I was a loyal fan of the games on Sega/Dreamcast and remember my mom would pick me up his comics from the hallmark store on the reg.
