We’re going back to the past for the newest comic arc!
The preview for Sonic the Hedgehog #288 has been released, and it continues the 25th anniversary throwback of Mega Drive and the Next Level with the start of a four-month classic-based arc! Relive the very origins of the franchise when this month’s issue takes a look back at the events of Sonic 1, with a little comic flavour sprinkled on.
But it’s not all about the game scene this time; you may also find a little insight into the Freedom Fighters in their early days, and maybe even threats lurking and waiting to strike once Eggman has been soundly defeated as per the end of the game! This is “Genesis of a Hero”: part 1.
