Rumors of Archie Comics dropping Sonic

by Lighthead

This is not looking good.

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool posted an article noting that you could no longer subscribe to the comic via Archie's website. As you can see there, no Sonic options. This is also the deep link for the Sonic The Hedgehog book and Sonic Universe, which again, is missing the option to subscribe.

Earlier today, Sonic Stadium user doctorbenMD called Archie to get some more information and was told the book may be ending at 290. This is far from fully confirmed but if so, looks like the book was dropped suddenly. Archie nor Sega have made a public statement yet. I'll update this as more information comes.

Some more reading on this:

Update: Jan 23 2017

There still has been no official word from Archie regarding the cancellation of the comics however, new solicitations have come out. This will be updated when subscriptions have been resolved.

Update: Feb 22 2017

Archie has not released any Sonic solicitations for May. In addition, issues 291 and 292 have been pushed to April according to Previews World. Sega and Archie have maintained a stiff lip for now.

Off to a new server and more updates

by Lighthead

We've made all around optimizations to the site.

  • Moved to a new server
  • Rewritten Music section
  • Comics section optimizations
  • Other misc UI updates

This should hopefully mean more exciting updates in the future as well.

From the depths of SHQ's archives

by Lighthead

SHQ has received a lot of various "rumors" over the years. Mostly in the past. Considering it's now been over 10 years since these "reports" were submitted, I figured to shed some light on a few. I won't be showing the names. Just the title and content. These were all submitted to SHQ's older news feed.

Sonic Runners - Last Chance!

by Vector

Sonic Runners

Sonic Runners is coming to a close pretty soon. On July 27 at 9AM UTC. (5AM EDT, 2AM PDT) the servers for the game will be shut down and you will no longer be able to play the game. At All! The app requires a constant connection so even when July 27 comes and goes, while the app will still remain on your device, it will likely throw an error.

Enter our initiative to get you the most out of the app before it's done. We've created this Facebook community. Head over and we'll see what we can do for you!

Sonic's 25th Anniversary!

by Lighthead

It's interesting isn't it?

It's a testament to the oldness feeling and it's very real.

It feels like just yesterday it was Sonic's 10th Anniversary, celebrating with Sonic Adventure 2. I remember getting that along with the collector's edition which had that nifty coin. (Unfortunately now I can't find it). 

We then celebrated Sonic's 15th anniversary with Sonic 06. AHEM, moving on...

For the 20th anniversary we got a treat with Sonic Generations.

Now here we are with today being Sonic's 25th anniversary. We don't have a game announcement yet but that's expected to be next month. I think everyone is in agreement that Sega should in no way rush the development of this game. You may be asking however, did Sega drop us anything? There is this nifty retrospective they posted on their youtube found below.

Site Optimizations

by Lighthead

We've made several site optimizations across the site over the last week or so. The music section most notably looks better and the entire site as a whole should render better on mobile devices. It's still not perfect though. (Nearly 40% of our traffic is mobile!)

Please let us know any features you would like to see!
