Archie Comics preview to the latest compilation book…
Archie Comics has released their preview of Sonic The Hedgehog Archives #9, which they also revealed the cover art to the issue as well. The compilation book will feature issues #33 through #36 and will be released near the beginning of October.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG ARCHIVES #9
The thrilling new series that lets fans relive classic Sonic stories continues!
Volume 9 presents issues #33 through #36 of Sonic’s ongoing comic book series in a special 5 x 7 & ½ inch edition. These stories continue the artistic change to a more
“dramatic” tone, better aligning the series to the hit Saturday morning animated series then on the air. The emphasis is on the royal politics of the kingdom, with power plays, self-sacrifice and betrayals galore. Each story is meticulously restored and printed on high-grade paper-so you can feel like you’re zipping right alongside the cobalt champion as he saves Knothole Village! This action-packed edition features events like the mystery of the Chaos Emeralds and the return of King Acorn (sort of)!
