Sonic the Hedgehog

Published since 1993 and currently ongoing, it was heavily inspired by the American Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon and contains many characters from that series in its storyline along with many Archie exclusive characters as well as game characters. Occasionally, they are combined with actual cartoon or game adaptions, with the former tending to be non-canon side stories.

Major Characters

Knuckles the Echidna

Starting as a mini-series called Knuckles the Dark Legion, Archie decided to extend it into an ongoing series called Knuckles the Echidna which lasted a total of 32 issues. These comics were written by Ken Penders. These comics starred Knuckles and Julie-Su the Echidna resulting in a lot of sexual tension until after the series ended and the two finally got together.

Major Characters

Sonic X

The comics have been in existence since the end of at least the first Sonic X series. The majority of the series involves real-life relations or other Sonic games that tie into the main storyline of the games. In response to the fan letters, Archie writers have stated that the comic series takes place between the second and third seasons (so after the Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 adaptations, but before the gang returns to their unnamed homeworld). The series had 40 total issues.

Characters

Many game characters have had cameo appearances, including Cosmo who never appeared until around the time Series 2 of Sonic X was announced.

Trivia

  • Both Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic X started with a four-issue mini-series to see if the series would gain much popularity. Later issues state connections to them as part of the main storyline. NiGHTS and Knuckles the Echidna also had a 3-issue adaption-- twice. Unfortunately, NiGHTS fell, but the second Knuckles series became an ongoing comic.
  • Sonic, Sally, Tails, and Knuckles had their own mini-series.
  • Sonic X, though closer in canonicity to the games, does not have a comic adaptions of any of the games.
