In this special Free Comic Book day edition, we take a look back at the history of the Sonic comic series. We learn the full story about Sonic and his friends and foes, plus Knuckles and Shadow.

Whether you're new to the world of Sonic, or just a long time fan willing to take a trip down memory lane, this is one book you cannot miss.
This issue reveals Regina F. to be the Iron Queen.
This is the first Free Comic Book Day comic not to have a cover designed by Patrick Spaziante.
This cover mirrors the cover for Sonic the Hedgehog #0 and #¼ where Robotnik chases Sonic in his Egg-O-Matic over a bridge with both characters in the same pose (with Eggman using his opposite fist and Sonic's legs blurred as he runs on this issue's cover).
This is the last Free Comic Book Day issue published in the first decade of the 2000's.
