With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running uninterrupted American monthly comic book that's currently being published. In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line.

This week, we've got demonic possession, widespread destruction, and then a month off so that Sonic can go compete in the Olympics. Seriously.

Sonic Becomes A Werehog In ‘Sonic The Hedgehog Vol. 4: Control’ [Preview]

Sonic the Hedgehog vol. 4: Control, Archie Comics

So remember how a couple weeks ago, I said that Sonic the Hedgehog continuity was so weird that you could pretty much tell me anything about it and I would have no reason to doubt you? Well buckle up, kids, because our friends at Archie just sent over a preview of their next paperback collection of Sonic stories, and it's a weird one. In this particular story, Sonic becomes a werewolf. Er, werehog? Werewolfhog? Listen, it's probably for the best if you just check out the preview below!

Brace Yourselves: The CW’s ‘Riverdale’ Has A Release Date

Riverdale, the CW

From the second it was announced, I have been looking forward to the CW's Riverdale TV show with a fervor that borders on religion. I mean, my pre-existing love of Archie Comics is rooted pretty firmly in all the stuff where they get super weird, and coming to television with a dark drama about Dark Secrets and Hidden Agendas that's also literally about Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead is exactly what I want.

The only question was whether I could endure the seeming eternity until it finally got here. And now we know when that will be.

Cheryl Blossom’s Web Of Intrigue Continues To Tighten (And Jughead Maybe Buys A Phone) In ‘Archie’ #14 [Preview]

Archie #14, Archie Comics

In the solicitation for this week's Archie #14, there's a quick line about Cheryl Blossom and Veronica Lodge that casts their relationship into a new light, for me at least. I mean, I knew Cheryl was a wrecking ball with the kind of vast reach and Byzantine plans that you usually only see James Bond fighting against, but I hadn't considered that when she's around, Veronica suddenly becomes Betty. Well, she becomes sort of like Betty, just without the kind heart. But still, it puts her status as Riverdale's most disruptive force in pretty simple terms.

And that disruption is going to be on display this week in Archie #14. Check out a preview --- but keep in mind that Cheryl won't show up until after these pages. Instead, we find out all about Archie trying to get Jughead to buy a phone. Enjoy!

Journey Through A (Public) Domain Of Wonderment In ‘Betty And Veronica: Fairy Tales’ [Preview]

Betty And Veronica: Fairy Tales

There's a street in Riverdale's magical Yellow Wood called Storybook Lane, and as you might expect from the all-consuming weirdness of the Archie universe, it has the same nebulous relationship to fables and fairytales that Memory Lane does with time. Just something to keep in mind when you're reading the new Betty and Veronica: Fairy Tales collection --- it's out this week, and you can check out a preview below!

Reggie Mantle Continues To Be The Worst In ‘Reggie And Me’ #1 [Preview]

Reggie And Me #1, Archie Comics

Reggie Mantle is the absolute worst. But since he's starring in a comic called Reggie and Me, who could possibly stand being around him long enough to be the "and Me" in that equation?

Well, as it turns out, the series is narrated by Reggie's beloved dog, bringing the number of dog-narrated 2016 Archie comics to a surprising "two." Check out a preview of the first issue from Tom DeFalco and Sandy Jarrell to see what else is in store for Riverdale's (least) favorite prankster.

In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line.

This week, it's the shocking death of --- wait, no. Looks like he's not dead after all. Sorry to worry you.

Rise From Your Grave… For America! In ‘The Shield’ #4 [Preview]

The Shield #4, Archie Comics

Hey, you kids are all about the Revolutionary War these days, right? Like, super into Federalist Papers and Hercules Mulligan and all that? Great, because I have some good news for you: Not only is Archie's rebooted version of the Shield back in action with one of the best costume redesigns of the past few years, but it's also taking you into the origins of comics' first patriotic superhero. And it is not the origin you might expect. Check out a preview.
