Popular Video Game Franchise Getting Its Third Ongoing Graphic Novel Series.
Just in time for the biggest pop and geek culture event of the year, Archie Comics and SEGA have announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series, a week before the start of Comic Con International in San Diego. The series will be based on the upcoming video game expansion for the popular Sonic gaming franchise, which will also see a new animated series from Cartoon Network scheduled to debut later this year in October.
Written by bestselling Sonic comic scribe Ian Flynn, the comic series will reside in the same story universe as the TV series and games, featuring a different take on the Sonic the Hedgehog universe, with a new look and feel. Sonic and his friends Tails, Amy, Knuckles and new member Sticks, must come together as a team to explore a new world full of comedy and adventure.
