Rumors of Archie Comics dropping Sonic

avatar Lighthead @

This is not looking good.

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool posted an article noting that you could no longer subsribe 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:

I won't be showing the names. Just the title and content. These were all submitted to SHQ's older news feed.

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!
