In case the title didn't catch you off-guard, here's a brief summary of what late-breaking news was just revealed. Ready? Are you sure? Okay...
You heard me right; Archie Comics (the people behind the action-slam packing Sonic the Hedgehog comic series) will be bringing us a monthly comic series based on Sonic Boom. Believe it or not, we were hinted at this briefly on the official solicitation for Sonic Super Special Magazine #12. For the full scoop, check out the following articles:
Also, here's the comic series' blurb from the Archie Comics website (which you can see below):

Now, for my favorite part: speculation! Honestly, with Sonic Boom not having a lengthy plot but rather a normal "reset" each episode (similar to how each Spongebob Squarepants episodes work), I honestly think this comic will have a long-going plot.
But why do I think this? - Sonic X. This comic did the exact opposite of its television series; whereas the latter chronicled a plot, the former decided to go with just a "reset" every time it ended an issue (yeah, there are some exceptions, but still, hopefully you get what I mean). So, could Sonic Boom comic be a long-going chronicle of the world of Boom? Or will it be like its television brother and remain having a "reset every issue/episode" formula? Also, what do you think of this announcement? Be sure to comment below!
