Captivating article title, isn’t it? Read on to go back to those days of eating sugary cereal and watching cartoons on those early Saturday mornings!
American comic book publisher Archie are well known within the Sonic community for their well maintained Sonic comic book universe including their video game adaptations. These adaptations are being released digitally by Archie in a way similar to how Sonic Generations presented each of its levels, splitting them into three ‘eras’.
Sonic: The Games Classic, available now, collects adaptations of Sonic’s original 2D adventures on the Mega Drive and Game Gear in one 120-page compilation for a mere $3.99. Sonic: The Games Millennium, available on Aug 8th, chronicle Sonic’s escapades during the 2000′s and Sonic: The Games Modern, available Aug 29th, tackles everything else up till now. All three volumes can be purchased via Archie’s own digital store, via Apple’s App store, or via Google’s Android shop.
Growing up in the UK, Archie’s Sonic comics weren’t widely available, with myself settling for the fantastic Sonic the Comic instead. But for $3.99 a pop, I would consider this a fantastic entry point into Archie’s unique take on the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. Let us know if you’re going to check them out in the comments below, and hit the jump to see each volume’s cover!
Editor’s Note: Sorry again boys and girls for the late submission, work duties. I’d like to fall back on the excuse of ‘better late than never’, but that just doesn’t sit quite right with me. So, expect a regularly scheduled program of features on the days they’re supposed to be published. Also, forgive the length, but my computer decided to crash and eat the original. Enjoy!
Okay, so let’s sit back and talk comic books for a few minutes. You know what I mean, those inked graphic serialized books that have kick ass artwork, interesting stories and sometimes more rack than my closet as far as the female characters are concerned – depending on what comic you’re reading anyway. But all the same, comics are just one of those mediums that have always had the power to pull in geeks and non-geeks alike without all the hassle of kicking and screaming. So, it would seem only natural for them to be combined with video games to make something truly awesome, right?
