Sonic the Comic, the UK fortnightly comic that ran from 1993 and continues in web form as Sonic the Comic – Online to this day turns 25 years old this year, and fans are planning a celebration of that milestone.
Sonic the Comic Online Editor Mike Corker is hoping to see the event come to life pending a successful Kickstarter campaign in the form of a day-long celebration of the comic and everything that made it memorable to fans 25 years after it’s creation. Fans will have the opportunity to meet special guests, including the fan artists who continue the comics legacy, with backer perks including a T-Shirt with artwork designed by Richard Elson to commemorate the event.
The event will be held on June 3rd 2018 at the FAB cafe in Manchester.
With a modest goal of £1000, the Kickstarter is currently at just under £400, with funds contributing to venue and equipment hire and special guest costs.
