After 24 years of publication, the American comic publishers Archie Comics will be ending Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog comic books. The partnership of Archie Comics and Sega will be ending and no more Sonic comics will continue. Unfortunately as well, this cancellation news happened and the comics has not even reached issue #300. This means also that fans will no longer get these titles:
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Sonic Universe
- Sonic Mega Drive
Here is what Sega said in tweet:
However, despite of this and possible silver lining in the negatives, comic publisher IDW will be forming a partnership with Sega and will continue to produce the Sonic comics. IDW is known for publishing titles such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony and Transformers. It’s unknown if they will continue with the available characters (Sally, Snively, or other original characters) or start out fresh.
