Meet Amy Rose For The First Time (Again) In ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ #290 [Preview]

Sonic the Hedgehog #290, Archie Comics

Well, I just got an email from Archie Comics with the words "Sonic's Cease and Desist" in it, so I can only assume that somehow, someone found the novella I've been writing about Chris the Hedgehog, Sonic's cool new friend who's way faster and is also best friends with Twenty One Pilots The Hedgehogs. And yes, I know that I shouldn't have printed and sold those for profit, but in my defense, I thought the best way to understand Sonic was to enter his world myself. So I guess we'll just pop open this email here and ---

Oh. Oh, okay. It seems that "Sonic's Cease and Desist" is actually just the title of the next issue of Sonic The Hedgehog, out this week from Archie, which is a fun play on the fact that they're doing an adaptation of, and tribute, to the classic video game Sonic CD. So hey, why not check out a preview of that below and forget those things you just read that were definitely just comedy jokes!
