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.
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?
If you've been following Archie's adventure comics, then you might remember that a good chunk of 2013 was taken up with "Worlds Collide," a massive crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. If you missed it, then trust me, it was a pretty big deal - so big, in fact, that it seems like Archie, Sonic and Capcom have decided to follow it up with an even bigger crossover: "Worlds Unite," a full-on mashup of Sega and Capcom characters, set to launch in May, finally bring us one step closer to my dream of Jughead showing up in a Street Fighter game.
What? We're actually getting Archie vs. Predator, do you really think that couldn't happen?
Suiting his speedy nature, Sonic the Hedgehog is never far from a new video game, having starred in more than 70 since his debut in Sega Genesis in 1991. But animation? Despite a starring in a flurry of shows in the 1990s including two simultaneous (but tonally different) cartoons circa 1994, an original animated video from Japan in 1996, the rock and roll themed Sonic Underground in 1999 and finally Sonic X in 2003-2004, it's been almost a decade since Sonic and friends squared off with Dr. Eggman in a proper animated series. That's set to change in the fall of 2014, with a new CG animated series with the working title Sonic Boom set to debut on Cartoon Network.

We were pretty impressed with Sega's prologue trailer for its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Captain America: Super Soldier last week, but what of the Captain America: The First Avenger movie tie-in's other versions on the Wii and DS...
It may not be footage from Captain America: The First Avenger, but Sega's new prologue trailer for its videogame tie-in Captain America: Super Soldier is most assuredly the next best thing. If you like seeing Cap take on an entire squad of heavily armed and armored Hydra goons (plus a few tanks) on his own, you'll especially appreciate when his pals Bucky and Dum Dum Dugan show up for a quick assist...
