Archie Action Releases for April 2016 [Solicitations]

Courtesy of Archie Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions, and graphic novels going on sale in March 2016 from the publisher’s Archie Action line featuring Sonic the Hedgehog.

Two new storylines kick off in April in both Sonic comics. Just when Sonic and the Freedom Fighters think they have everything ready to rebuild the shattered world in Sonic the Hedgehog, along comes Dr. Eggman to put everything the heroes have worked for at risk. Of course, if Knuckles and Amy Rose don’t manage to find the final pieces of the Master Emerald in Sonic Universe, Sonic’s plans to finally bring the planet back together may not matter much after all.

Oh, and if you happened to miss out on the Mega Man action early on, Archie has a new manga digest-sized collection of the first 12 issues coming in the Mega Man Master Edition. You can get the full skinny on all the books below.
