Two New Thrilling Sonic Issues This March!

by Jeff

Last month, Archie Comics took a brave, bold step into continuity coherence with the introduction of a new series, SONIC UNIVERSE. Designed to unify the various Sonic continuities as never before and tie up loose ends, SONIC UNIVERSE #1 began Sonic and his friends down the road of a cohesive, unified continuity. Best of all, it promises to deliver some of the popular supporting cast from the many Sonic video games, including many who have never appeared in the comics before!

This March, SONIC UNIVERSE is back with an action-packed second issue. It is the eve of Sonic’s big confrontation with Dr. Robotnik, but Shadow and Rouge have other plans. As the three of them embark on a crucial midnight raid, readers will have the opportunity to simultaneously look back on a time when Sonic and Shadow weren’t so friendly as they witness the lost tale of their battle for the ARK! It’s déjà vu all over again as the present and past run parallel in the high-action tale, “Time and Again”!

Meanwhile, the countdown to the 200th issue of the monthly SONIC THE HEDGEHOG series continues in issue #198. In “Egg Phoenix Down,” Sonic leads the fully assembled Freedom Fighters and Chaotix on an invasion of Dr. Robotnik’s city, but the doctor unleashes a terrifying new weapon that may make their fight a short one! These egg-plosive events will have impact upon the events that transpire in SONIC UNIVERSE, providing unified and ongoing continuity as the storylines and cast of characters expand.

If ever there was a time to jump on board and become a Sonic reader, that time is now! Be sure to order these March-shipping issues:
