Sega has finished its long-running partnership with Archie, ending the 24-year run of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. The company made the announcement today via the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account.
Here’s the full statement, via Polygon:
After 24 years of memorable storytelling, SEGA of America will conclude their Sonic the Hedgehog publishing partnership program with Archie Comics. This does not mark the end of Sonic in comics, but signifies SEGA of America's decision to take a different direction for the series that will be announced at a later date. SEGA would like to thank Sonic's amazing fans for their loyalty and passion over all the years. SEGA looks forward to providing more information soon.
Given the wording, its likely we’ll see more Sonic-related comics. With what publisher however, remains to be seen.
The Sonic the Hedgehog comics started in 1993, and saw over 290 issues released.
