One of my earliest childhood memories is of sitting my father and my brother in front of the TV, watching the first episode of Sonic the Hedgehog. Even though we had just watched it, my father still got excited about it. It's rare to see a kid get excited about something his or her parents haven't seen. When my brother finally showed me that first episode of the Sonic comic, I almost fell in love with this animated superhero. I would go on to buy two more issues of Sonic comic for the rest of my life.
Sometime later, another animated series based on Sonic the Hedgehog came onto the television screen. This time, it was called the Sonic the Hedgehog. In fact, the first season lasted eleven seasons, and featured many different versions of Sonic. I can remember vividly going to the movies for the first time, because my little sister would watch the cartoon from start to finish whenever it came on the television. It was an awesome feeling to know that not only did my beloved hedgehog have an ongoing comic book series, but it was also comic books that I could enjoy as well.
After the cartoon became popular, several different versions of Sonic the Hedgehog have made appearances in different comic series. Some of them I personally enjoy, while others are not as nice as some of the others. It all depends on what you prefer, and who you grew up with. For example, one Sonic Comic I enjoyed was called Sonic the Hedgehog: Return to Paradise. It was a follow up to the popular Sonic the Hedgehog series.
I believe that the one thing that makes any comic book interesting is the ongoing storyline. This is why I enjoyed the Sonic the Hedgehog series so much. There were always new problems for Sonic, and he always seemed to be looking for solutions. In this particular comic I also liked that there were several different versions of Sonic throughout the series. The one that you are probably familiar with him as being the hedgehog was named Amy Rose.
The story began with Dr. Finkelstein's experiments with a mysterious energy potion. He inadvertently merged three separate worlds into one, and Sonic the Hedgehog was born. In the beginning of the book there were hints that there would be more sequels to the series, but I don't think there were any. One of the reasons I didn't think there were more Sonic comics was because I had not read any of them.
A few years later I was introduced to another comic by the same team, which was turned into a movie. I can remember sitting my parents chair and reading this comic as a child. It is one of my favorites. One of the best things about the Sonic the Hedgehog comic is when you get to see Amy Rose, who is Sonic's love interest in the beginning. When you first meet her she is still Doctor Eggman, and she is not a very good friend. However, she ends up helping Sonic during his adventures.
The main reason I like the Sonic comics so much is they keep me entertained. You never know when a new character will show up. This is very true with the newest Sonic the Hedgehog movie. We haven't seen much of Sonic in the new movies yet, so I am anxious to see what happens with him. I'm also interested in seeing where the other characters are suppose to go.
The last thing I want to say about this comic book is that it is worth every penny. If you are a Sonic fan this is a must read. The art is superb, and each panel is something that can't be found in any other comic book. The story is great, and I have always been impressed with how Sonic has developed throughout the years. Even though I have only read the first two issues of this new Sonic comic I already know that this is going to be a favorite for me. It has just as much entertainment value as any other comic out there.
