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

If you happened to miss out on all the action and excitement of the massive "Worlds Unite" crossover, the second volume of the Archie Action event will be hitting your LCS this February. There were lots of punches thrown, so if that's your bag, it seems like a good fit. Elsewhere, Sonic's Werehog form returns during the second chapter of "Wings of Fire." Gotta give to the creative team for being able to make something out of that weird decision from the Sonic Unleashed video game. Over on the other side of the Sonic Universe, Eggman tries his hardest to get his factory back, but things don't exactly go as planned.
