On the third day of Christmas, Retro gave to me…
…a huge poster scan of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Now, we’ve all seen the cover to the Sonic the Hedgehog promotional comic that came out back in 1991 in the United States. Drawn in that very familiar American artstyle…well, you can argue the pros and cons of how he ended up looking. Either way, you can’t dismiss the fact the image is iconic. But since the most common scan of that cover has a very large crease in the middle, and the fact that it’s a comic book cover so it automatically has all sorts of text and icons scattered about, there hasn’t been any super huge awesome clean scan of it.
Courtesy of Sonic Retro member jlmcr87, this has all changed. Possessing the poster version of the image (which means no text save the Sonic the Hedgehog and Sega logos), you can now download it at the extreme resolution of 4905 x 6956. That’s suitable for framing! If you have the means, you can make a print and hang it in your house, just in time for your most recent Christmas party. Imagine how your guests will swoon over your wall! It could very well be the best Christmas ever. Just go ahead and click on the image above to get the extreme version. Just be wary of the file size. Might not be such a good idea for you to try and view it on your iPhone.
“Where are Eggman’s Eyes” Eggwho? Dude thats Robotnik.
and holy shit! Thats freakin epic! The American Sonic is the real Sonic, without America there would be no Classic Sonic
Man!! I have a post of this from a 90’s video-game magazine!!! Thanx a lot for this amazing “Christmas gift”!!
Oh my god. I have this poster, but it’s aged horribly. So many rips and tears it’s not funny. I need to re-print this!
I wish I had this poster again just like the good old days of childhood…
I want that poster…
That’s beyond way past cool… (if that even makes any sense.) Finally, an excuse to tear down my Sonic & Sega BallStars Racing poster.
I still have this poster…in mint condition framed behind glass on my wall. :3
I got it on my phone now!!!! Wahahaha!!
actually without Japan thered be no classic sonic…
“Dude thats Robotnik”
Nobody calls him that anymore.
