This fall Sonic is taking things to the Next Level, and not just metaphorically. It's the name of this November's extra-sized one-shot picking up right where Mega Drive left off. You can say a lot of things about the Blue Blur, but you can't ever say the dude slows down for one second.

Who Will Answer the Call in Sonic the Hedgehog #283 [Preview]

Archie
Archie

One day, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Amy, Sally, Knuckles and the rest of the gang are going to have a nice vacation. There won't be any more Eggman troubles to deal with, and the world will finally be at peace. Nothing but clear skies, chill music, high fives, and frosty beverages for everyone. Unfortunately for them, that day has not yet arrived, and the troubles continue to mount for the Freedom Fighters. It's nice to think that eventually things will work out for the heroes in this universe. That just hasn't been the case as of late.

But perhaps that day is closer than we thought. In Sonic the Hedgehog #283, the Freedom Fighters finally have everything they need to bring some hope into the world. With Eggman still lurking in the shadows however, can anything possibly go as planned. Guess it depends on how many of the world's heroes come to Sonic's aid when he needs them the most.

Super Sonic arrives just in time for the conclusion of the Shattered World Saga, and it's not a moment too soon. The gilded version of our favorite hedgehog hero must be strong enough to fend off Dark Gaia, otherwise the Freedom Fighters won't stand a chance. It's not easy to constantly have the fate of the world resting on your shoulders, but Sonic's proven time and again that he's up to the task.

Sonic and the Freedom Fighters just can't seem to catch a break, as the next storyline for Sonic the Hedgehog has the good guys with their backs against the wall following a shocking victory by Eggman. Things get so desperate, the ol' Werehog comes out of retirement to try and sway the battle back to the Freedom Fighters' favor.

Fantastic Five: Video Games That Deserve Comics

game comics five

Hello again and welcome to another episode of Fantastic Fives, the show where we tell you the irrefutably correct five answers to a particular topic in comics, and you tell us how wrong we are in the comments! This week we’re looking at five video games that deserve their own comics.

There’s a lot of overlap between fans of comics and fans of video games. And there have been some great and some not so great video games based on comics and comic characters. So why aren’t there more comics based on video games?

Virtua Fighter Figmas Might be the Best Video Game Figmas Ever Made

Good Smile
Good Smile

Fighting games are a staple of the video game diet, but while their number has been plentiful over the years, few have maintained a legacy. You've got your Street Fighters and your Mortal Kombats, but neither of those was created using technology co-developed by Lockheed Martin. The Model 1 arcade board is what helped set Sega's Virtua Fighter apart from the competition in 1993, and what helped earn the 3D polygonal fighter a place in fighting fans' hearts.

The series continued along and improved its presentation using the cutting edge technology of whatever era a sequel released in, but the blocky graphics of the first entry will never be forgotten. That's what makes these new Virtua Fighter Figmas so special. While there have been video game Figma figures before, they mostly hold to a more realistic standard. Few Figmas have been as stylized to capture such a significant art style and moment in time as the upcoming Sarah Bryant and Akira Yuki Virtua Fighter figures.

Archie Action Sonic the Hedgehog Releases for February 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 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.

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

Though the Archie Action line will be minus some "mega" fun in the new year, that doesn't mean Sonic the Hedgehog won't still be up to his old tricks. Eggman just never gets tired of trying to take the Blue Blur down, but Sonic and his friends appear to be up to whatever task is needed in both the main book and Sonic Universe. Maybe one of these days, Sonic will actually find some time to finish putting his planet back together. Provided Eggman gives the poor guy a break.

Sonic and Team Bring the Thunder in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ #277 [Preview]

Archie

Poor, Sonic the Hedgehog. The dude just never catches a break. Unless of course the "break" you're talking about is how his whole world is still shattered. Literally. Sonic and his friends have been working tirelessly to repair their planet since it fractured in the events after "Worlds Collide." Maybe if Sonic had time to catch his breath instead of constantly thwarting Eggman's latest machinations, Mobius wouldn't be the hot mess it still is today.

But even Sonic can't do everything on his own, and this issue will also see Sally and Bunnie track down the final Chaos Emerald. You might recall the Chaos Emeralds were last used during "Worlds Unite" to give Mega Man and Sonic the power boost needed to take Sigma down for good. As long as they don't fall into the hands of Eggman, everyone should be okay, right?
