I may not know much about Sonic The Hedgehog, but there's one interesting little piece of trivia about the comics that I am absolutely fascinated by. Despite the fact that DC has recently returned Action Comics and Detective Comics to their original numbering, placing them somewhere in the mid-900s, the core Sonic the Hedgehog comic stands at 285 issues and counting as the longest-running monthly American comic book that has not been rebooted,renumbered, or otherwise restarted. It's been on the stands every month since 1993!
Throw in all the spin-off titles, and that means that there's a lot of Sonic content out there. So much so, in fact, that with Sonic Universe hitting #89 next week, there's enough Sonic content out there that the reprint-focused Sonic Super Digest is on its 17th issue. So why not celebrate the continued reign of a blue hedgehog who runs fast with a preview of both titles?
No one ever said being bad was easy, but Sonic the Hedgehog's main rival Eggman just can't buy a break. Not only does Eggman constantly have to deal with the Blue Blur and his friends mucking up his latest world domination plan, but he's also got all the other evil villains of Mobius to contend with. Now, Eggman's got to turn his eye from fending off Sonic to recapturing his own fortress from a devious duo in order to keep his spot as Big Bad Numero Uno.
Fortunately for Eggman, his genius in creating robots to do all his dirty work for him will come in handy. Where two wizards might pose a problem for just one mere man, no matter how great his intelligence, they're hardly a match for an army of Egg Bosses. When you absolutely, positively have to put some up and coming villains in their place, what better tactic than to throw everything you have at them. Check out Eggman going big or going home in the preview for Sonic Universe #83.
While Sonic the Hedgehog has been working to keep his world from falling apart, somewhere in time, Silver the Hedgehog has been trying to put his back together. The time-traveling hero has been flittering through all kinds of timelines during "The Silver Age" storyline that's been running in Sonic Universe these past few months, but he might soon find some answers to help him on his quest.
What could possibly happen next for Silver? You can find out in this advanced look at next week's issue. Courtesy of Archie Comics, we've got an exclusive preview of the next chapter of "The Silver Age" taking place in Sonic Universe #81, including a special "To the Future" variant cover from Adam Bryce Thomas.
Welcome to the seventh installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event. This week, we're digging even deeper with more details about the future of Archie Action, Mega Man and Sonic Boom straight from San Diego Comic-Con.
Previously in "Worlds Unite," our heroes had been searching for Sigma and his hideout, Lost Hex. The group, traveling aboard Sky Patrol, had been searching the area Wily and Eggman directed them to, and were met with swift resistance from Sigma's new robot army. Fortunately, the team of Freedom Fighters and Robot Masters makes short work of the mechanized opposition, but the Deadly Six prove to be a bit more trouble than expected. Even as defeat loomed, the Zeti were able to overcome the odds and take control of Mega Man and his friends to do the fighting for them.

As a kid I can only remember a single time anything ever happened after the credits of a movie. It was after napping through the second half of Beethoven (or maybe Beethoven 2?) on VHS, and all that happened was a silhouette of a St. Bernard climbed a hill and barked in the sunset. But then Iron Man came along in 2008 and shook Hollywood to the core with Samuel L. Jackson's now classic "Avengers Initiative" recruitment scene. Surprisingly, no one in the comic book industry proper had quite capitalized on the storytelling device... until now. This May,Archie Comics is kicking off its own “After the Credits” initiative in its Sonic The Hedgehog and Mega Man titles.
