We're closing in on the end of Archie's Worlds Unite mega-event-- well, the solicitations part, anyway-- with the 275th issue of Sonic The Hedgehog.
Plus, with this, Sonic is now tied for the longest-running licensed comic book under a single publisher (in terms of straight numbering) with Marvel's Conan the Barbarian! Marvel's Conan also had 12 annuals, but if we were to take into account all the extra stuff the Blue Blur has under his non-existent belt, he'd totally blow the barbarian out of the water!
Congratulations to Sonic, and everyone involved in getting him this far, which undoubtedly helped pave the way for our own true blue hero to make a lasting impression in serial storytelling!
