Topic: Comic Books - New
Vinnie read the first volume right away, and realizing that my time was short this weekend for setting up a blog post for Monday morning... volunteered to blog in my place!
Here is Vinnie's blog post:
"Sonic the Hedgehog Archives Volume I shows comic book issues #1 thru 4 of the Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic is a blue hedgehog that first appeared in video games, specifically the Sega Genesis.
Since 1993 Sonic has appeared in comics published by Archie Comic Publications. I am blogging about the books that have come out that combine the early comic books into book format.
There are two stories in each issue of the comic, making a total of 8 fantastic Sonic tales. The illustrations are fantastically done, and the word balloons are funny, but are also interesting.
What really made me read this was: the cover, because it was shown with all the characters; the back cover text because it told a little about the Sonic history; and the title "Sonic the Hedgehog Archives Volume 1.
The title told me it was about Sonic and that they were old issues, so I picked it up, started reading it, and liked it.
The only thing I see missing is the 'origin' of Sonic and how he and his friends became freedom fighters. Other than that everything was great!
There are over 200 issues in the comic book series now. I didn't get to read the first issues when they came out. I am glad that I had the chance to read these earliest issues this weekend.
This is a great buy because the first 4 issues of the comic book cost about $60 if you were to buy them as comic book back issues. Instead you can buy this book at $7.49 plus shipping.
This book is for all ages and is really funny. I recommend this book to anyone, and when your'e sad, just read this book and you'll be happy again in no time!"
Paperback: 112 pages
