Official Sonic FB Page Plugs Wrong FCBD Comic

Official Sonic FB Page Plugs Wrong FCBD Comic

Two Steps–And One Year–Back

Free Comic Book Day took place this past weekend, and if you’ve been reading this time, you’ve known for months the planned release from Archie for this year was to be a combined Sonic / Mega Man flipbook that served as a preface to the Worlds Collide arc.

Unfortunately, it appears no one told Sega last Thursday, when they plugged last year‘s FCBD release on Facebook instead:


Even more bizarre is that the mistake, never corrected and still on the official Sonic FB page as of this article’s publication, came a day after a post with the correct cover.

Still, with more than 300 shares and over 3,500 “likes” on the post, the mistake probably did more good than harm simply by raising awareness of the day.  Nearly all eyewitness accounts around the Internet suggests the flipbooks went quick.  But we’re also checking into a tip sent into us that Sonic writer Ian Flynn was a no-show at a planned FCBD event this past weekend.  When we learn more about that, we will pass that along.
