Upcoming Comics

Updated April 22, 2017

Sonic 291 and 294 are now being reported as cancelled according to PreviewsWorld. I'm reluctant to say they're 100% entirely cancelled until we get a statement from either Archie or Sega which is rumored to occur by the end of the month.

Additionally, the July solicitations have gone out and there is still no sign of Sonic.

The Archie Sonic comics are currently experiencing a hiatus. This has not been officially announced to the public and there are only speculations as to why. This listing will always be kept up to date.
