Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comic Book Series Cancelled After 24 Years

After 24 long years with plenty of ups and downs, the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter confirmed today that the Archie Sonic series has finally been put to rest. This comes after months of silence from both parties as the series was put on hiatus after 290 at the end of 2016. The comic has run alongside Sonic since 1992 and featured characters from both the video games and the Saturday Morning Cartoon.

For those wanting to reminisce on Archie’s take of the games, check out “How Archie Played the Games”  and “Mobius: 25 Years Later,” by our very own David the Lurker.


Follow “Iizuka” on Twitter

I put a heavy emphasis on those quotation marks, because it isn’t really Iizuka.  A total champion of everything started this parody account back on August 12th and has been dishing out absolutely hilarious tweets since then.  If you have a sense of humor and/or really hate the director of Sonic Team, this account is one to follow.  Tweets cover Sonic Team’s ineptitude, batshit crazy design decisions and just some over-the-top PR that we’ve come to know and love from this man.  This is truly Takashi Iizuka as you’ve imagined him.

If you are the one behind this awesomeness, please step forward so I can give you a hi-five.

Check it out here and some of my personal favorites below:

‘Sonic Rush is such a great game with perfect level design, music and how you slow down when you roll. Sonic Rush really is What U Need.’

‘There is a purple recolor of Sonic in Sonic Colors. Instead of giving our fans all of the hard work in making their own, you can use ours!’

‘Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is for the 2D fans, and Sonic Colors is for the 3D fans, which is why most of the game has 2D platforming.’

‘Sonic Team are the professionals at work here. Today we finished a WHOLE game of tag.’

‘Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is designed around what made Sonic great to begin with. The speed and the story.’

‘Sonic Adventure 2’s story was based on my life. I was involved in a government conspiracy and they killed my grandfather in a space station.’

‘I crashed Yu Suzuki’s Ferrari so he took away all of my crayons again.’

‘We have to delay Shadow the Hedgehog 2 because the office accidentally spent all of the level design budget on Silly String again.’
