Featured stories

Lost World





  • This adaption for Sonic Lost World is twenty pages long, making it the longest adaption for a Sonic the Hedgehog game in the Archie Comics.
  • The whole second half of the comic, where Sonic and Tails chase Eggman to the Lost Hex, is a word-for-word recreation of the opening scene from the Sonic Lost World video game.
  • This is the first full Sonic story to be pencilled by Ryan Jampole, who had previously stepped in for Jamal Peppers to pencil the last few pages of Mega Man #25 (part of the When Worlds Collide crossover).
  • During the Sonic Lost World Charity Playthrough livestream, Ian Flynn stated that the story actually will be canon to the main continuity "later".
