SONIC is BACK in “Genesis of a Hero” Part One: It’s Sonic’s 25th Anniversary and we’re celebrating in style—retro-style that is! See Sonic in his first climactic show-down with Dr. Eggman, straight from the gameplay of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game! But what happens after the battle? And what new force arises once the dust has settled? It’s the story you know with a new twist! Featuring cover art by the legendary Patrick Spaziante and a “Best Buds” variant by the lovely Genevieve FT!
“It’s a great time to be a Sonic fan, as this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Blue Blur! Here at Archie, we’re looking to embrace the history of Sonic with our newest four-part story arc “Genesis of a Hero”! We’ll be turning back the clock to Sonic’s earliest battles with the evil Dr. Eggman, exciting brawls with killer robots, plus the introduction of Sonic’s team, the Freedom Fighters. This is a great jumping on point as we re-introduce key elements and characters of Sonic’s world and additionally expand on the comic universe’s history for long-time fans. There’s something for everyone when “Genesis of a Hero” kicks off in Sonic the Hedgehog #288!” – Vincent Lovallo
