Last week we brought you news that former Sonic the Comic publisher Egmont had signed a deal with Sega to publish new material. However, no details were given as to what they would be producing.
Well, we can now reveal the details.
A new Sonic the Hedgehog magazine will go on sale next month (yes you read that right!), no details as to the content were given, however it’s likely to follow along the lines of activity magazine as apposed to ‘comic book’ style.
In addition to this, from May 2014, Egmont will also publish the following.
- A Joke Book. £4.99
- Super Sonic Poster Book which includes activity pages. £6.99
- Secrets of Sonic the Hedgehog: A fact-file handbook with information and stats on Sonic and his friends, character profiles, background information and tactics and tips for playing the games. £5.99
- Sonic the Hedgehog Sticker Mania: Featuring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and other characters. £6.99
Egmont intends to publish the magazine and the books in UK & Eire, Australia and New Zealand.
We’ll update you with prices and details to the products as and when we get them.
