As always, we’ll have more news on this special issue closer to the time of its release, but it’s sure to bring back those memories of yesteryear as if they were yesterday!
PS: Sonic the Hedgehog #279 didn’t come out today either, so that’s still yet to be released (although Archie has made a statement that’s it’s still coming). Probably due to these delays, there is no new monthly cover and solicit reveal for this month. We’ll keep you posted on the situation as it updates!
