Sonic The Hedgehog is turning 25 this year…. And if for a lot of us, if we didn’t feel old before… we certainly do now!
I kid of course, but yes 25 years ago, Sonic debuted and has been running at a very uneven pace in terms of good games versus bad games… particularly from the launch of sonic Adventure in 1998 which saw the franchise move from the 2D realm to 3D, which has resulted in some very… very… bad games… namely the one released for the 15th Anniversary that… well, we won’t talk about that here.
However over in the comics… Sonic has enjoyed a rather long and consistent run under the Archie banner, and outside of issues with legal paperwork being missing and a retcon event that also involved MegaMan, Sonic The Hedgehog comics have remained… fairly decent over the years. Though personally, I think issues 32 through 75 are the best since they follow more of the Sonic Saturday Morning series and tie them in to the games.
