Another monthly update of the Archie comic situation, and things have cycled around once again, with similar updates to last month.
First up, Sonic is absent from the July 2017 solicits, marking three months in a row as a no show. With Sonic Universe #95 not released for its slated April 12th release, and Sonic #291 not listed for release next week despite its previous given date of April 26th, we won’t be seeing any Sonic comics in April, and makes any May releases unlikely.
Speaking of those issues, the latest order form has been uploaded for May 2017, and the listings there are pretty interesting. Sonic Universe #95-97 are down on it as to be re-solicited, while Sonic #291 and Sonic #294 are listed as cancelled by the publisher. Sonic #293 and Sonic #292 may have been avoided due to what dates were listed prior to this point (it should also be noted that the PreviewsWorld pages for all the above main comic issues bar Sonic #293 have been deleted).
And finally, we have more apparent news of SEGA and Archie still being in talks. Matt Herms posted an update to his Patreon page informing his patrons that they’re talking, and will tell fans when there’s anything to share after that. This corroborates with what Tracy Yardley said last month.
Fingers crossed for a significant new update soon, but this could drag on for months or more so be braced for that as well.
