You are right, the Sonic comic from Archie seems to be very popular in
America, but mainly because its the only one available. Besides, a running
cartoon series is the best support a comic can ever get.

However, I assume that things look a little different in Europe. The
Sathurday morning series isn't available on TV or video yet, most people
here don't even know that it exists. The fans have to read the comic if
they want to find out more about their favourite hero (this might also be
the reason why the Fleetway comic is based on the games instead of the

As far as I know, the Fleetway comic is originally made in England.
Translated adaptions are available in France, Italy and Germany.

I don't know how to get a subscription the official way. But if you want
to order back issues, you can write to the following address:

        Sunderland, SR4 6SN

To order by phone with a credit card you have to dial 01144-91-5102290
(hope this is the correct number to do it from the U.S.)

Have you seen the intro or ending part of the 'Sonic CD' game? Sonic looks
cool in it, but to my opinion a little bit too 'japanese'. It would be
better if _DIC_ would do the movie. They already did a great job on the
Sathurday morning series, why shouldn't they been able to make a good movie
as well? Or maybe a _co-production_ with a japanese company...

Um... by the way, why is everyone so sure that a movie is in the planning?
Shouldn't we first try to find out if it's really true? (Anyone happens
to know the e-mail address of Archie Comics?)

Take it easy

You get what anyone gets. You get a lifetime.
