R.I.P. Archie Sonic


Recommended Posts

So... I guess it's official. Archie Sonic is dead.

I read it a lot in primary school, and I loved it. At the time, I was a bit biased towards Sonally... which is unfortunate, as I started reading after the reboot, but looking back, the stories told were great, and always managed to pull off "dark and edgy Sonic" in a way Sega's own writers never could.

I hope the new publisher is great, but Archie Sonic will always have a place in my heart. What are your stories?

I think I have a few 90s Archie Sonic Comics kickin' around somewhere.

Anyway, I'm actually more surprised to learn it was still going.

I legit think that in 10 - 20 years, comic books will be essentially extinct. Back on "Free Comic Book Day" this year, I was reading an article documenting the industry's sales and comic books are like, the one industry where the digital sales have not eclipsed physical.

In a business where physical sales are at an all-time low — that's a pretty ominous sign.
