Official Press Release
For over a dozen years, one character has consistently captured the imagination of
fans everywhere. Whether zipping through outrageous landscapes in countless video
games or starring in death-defying adventures on TV and in comic books, few
characters from the past decade have had the staying power of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Much of that success can be attributed to the long-running array of specials,
mini-series and of course, ongoing series that Archie Comics has published featuring
this now seminal pop culture hero.
In March, Sonic fans can enjoy the same level of high-voltage excitement and clever
character development that they’ve come to expect from Sonic and Archie. They can
also blow out the candles as Sonic’s birthday is celebrated in pulse-pounding
In “Birthday Bash” from SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #160, birthday-boy Sonic has just been
presented with the newly-refurbished, original Freedom Fighter’s base, first shown
way back in SONIC #1! It doesn’t take long for the festivities to become fearsome,
as Bark and Bean crash the party on Robotnik’s orders! Meanwhile, Rogue and Evil
Sonic both have their eyes on pilfering the Master Emerald. It’s a birthday
“celebration” the Blue Blur will never forget!
As if that weren’t enough, the action doesn’t stop over in Sonic’s sister title,
SONIC X, based on the mega-hit Saturday morning TV series. Issue #7 features the
rough-and-tumble tale, “Take this Job and Shovel It.” City sewer workers unwittingly
unleash ProtoShadow, and Topaz and Rogue are assigned to investigate. Cowboy
decides to run an investigation of his own, and deceives Sonic into coming along.
Before too long, they’re setting off defense systems and ducking enemy drones!
