Sonic the Hedgehog and all the images you see in this recap are owned by Archie Comics and Sega of America

Boy it’s been a while, hasn’t it?  What with the NEW Sonic the Hedgehog comics coming out, I haven’t had much time to look back at the series that started it all!  That changes right now (at least for the time being) as we’ve got two more issues of the Archie series to look at!  With the new books fresh in my mind, how do these classic issues compare with what we’ve been getting recently?  Let’s find out!!

Issue 19 (February 1995)

Now this one’s a bit of a doozy as it’s the first issue in the series to have a SINGLE storyline instead of being broken up into vignettes which is an interesting change of pace and they certainly packed it with enough content to stretch the story out that long; not to mention continuity callbacks which I feel are only going to become more common as the series goes along.  So then!  Back in issue 11, Sonic used something called the COSMIC INTERSTATE in an attempt to shave time off of his commute but instead ended up going to a mirror universe with EVIL Sonic.  At the beginning of THIS issue, one of those Cosmic Interstate portals opens up and spits out a Terminator knock-off who is here to warn us all of impending doom!
