Official solicitation

SONIC is BACK in “Genesis of a Hero” Part One: It’s Sonic’s 25th Anniversary and we’re celebrating in style—retro-style that is! See Sonic in his first climactic show-down with Dr. Eggman, straight from the gameplay of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game! But what happens after the battle? And what new force arises once the dust has settled? It’s the story you know with a new twist! Featuring cover art by the legendary Patrick Spaziante and a “Best Buds” variant by the lovely Genevieve FT!

Featured stories

Genesis of a Hero Part One


  • Like the "Genesis" story arc in Sonic the Hedgehog #226-#229, this issue's arc celebrates Sonic's anniversary. Like the "Genesis" story arc, it uses the term "Genesis" as part of its title, in reference to the Sega Genesis console, which the original Sonic the Hedgehog video game appeared on.
  • The sidebar on the main cover resembles the border used on the Sega Genesis boxarts during the first half of the console's life.
  • Sonic's pose on the regular cover loosely resembles the one he makes in the ending on the original Sonic the Hedgehog video game.
