One branch of the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise that had developed a large fan following was the Archie Sonic comic book series. For over two decades, Sonic has battled many foes alongside the Freedom Fighters. When the comics were put on hiatus 6 months ago, fans were given the silent treatment until this summer, when Archie Comics began to inform people on Twitter that they were “in talks” with SEGA. Yesterday, we had learned from the Sonic PR team that an update on the comics would be coming this week, and that update has just come out.
SEGA of America and Archie Comics are going their separate ways, according to the official Sonic PR team. Although the Sonic brand will still see involvement in comics, The move “signifies SEGA of America’s decision to take a different direction for the series that will be announced at a later date”. More information will be provided “soon”. We’ve included the official tweet down below.
