Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com are now talking pre-orders for a Sonic comic universe Guide!
Over Sonic’s eighteen years of life, his Universe has expanded at an exponential rate, and any fan arriving in 2009 in a time machine from 1993 would be overwhelmed with the incredible number of flourescent friends and egg-shaped enemies the hedgehog has accumulated to date. In my old age I’m also loosing track of who some of these characters are too! Well, according to Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com, the folks at Archie are looking to remedy this situation by releasing the “Sonic the Hedgehog Who’s Who” Volume One Encyclopedia, a comprehensive reference to the characters, places and storylines from the comic series that is now close to 300 issues all told including special issues and spin-off story arcs. Fans of Archie comics will no doubt be happy to see something like this produced, however fans looking for something more universal spanning the games, UK comics and TV series will probably be a little disappointed.
UK fans can pre-order their copy for £11.99 from Amazon, while the Yanks once again get the cheaper deal and can order theirs for a modest $13.57. And Mutsky was the name Sonic’s dog…I still remember that at least.
