Could it be possible that Sonic the Hedgehog—after years of underwhelming games—is enjoying a bit of a resurgence? Both the re-release of Sonic CD and the debut of the all-new Sonic Generations have been reminding people how fun it is to play as Sega's mascot.

But, as opposed to his game appearances, Sonic's been running strong in comics for a while now. Archie Comics has been publishing comics featuring the sneaker-wearing mammal for more than a decade now, with oversized special issues punctuation a run of 200+ issues.

The latest Super Special—due out in a few weeks—features two specific chapters for Sonic aficianados. There's a story in there that tease plot developments for the upcoming Sonic 4, Episode 2 as well as a reprint of a Sonic CD-themed story from the long-ago Sonic the Hedgehog #25. The Episode 2 story serves as a prequel to the downloadable game, so if you want to figure what Robotnik and Metal Sonic will be doing to piss off Sonic, look for Sonic Super Special #3 at your local comic shop.

Hmmm what going to happen in episode 2. Well its not going to be on Wii, so my version of the story already ended. Seriously Sega, Nintendo has been the home for most good sonic games in the past years and this is how you repay them?
