2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dominic Mason on 9 Sept. 2014
Format: Paperback
First thing to mention on this is that this is a 'reboot' of the franchise. Due to legal issues with a former writer, SEGA and Archie ended up rebooting the series, which was what the Worlds Collide crossover was for. This series collects the series from issue 252 onwards.

The story itself is perfect, dealing with the aftermath of Dr Eggman's attempt at (SPOILER) destroying reality while also closing, albeit loosely, the King Naugus and Mecha Sally arcs, with the Freedom Fighters being the main focus and Eggman's sideplot providing exposition on the situation. If you know the story of 2008's main Sonic game you'll know how the story will end and boy is it one hell of a cliffhanger.

It neatly (re)introduces the characters and their updated personalities; Rotor being leaner and stronger to add to his mechanical skills, Antoine is noticeably braver than the pre-reboot version, Bunnie's more or less the same and Sally actually has some combat skills along with her leadership skills, however, their origin stories are going to be in the next book.

My only dig is that the art of chapter 4 is slightly sub-par to the rest of the comic and unfortunately is one of those situations of once you notice it it's really annoying.

All in all, a nice reintroduction to Mobius and the start of a story that could eclipse the crossover. And that was good!

I liked it and you should buy it. 30 Oct. 2014
By D. Prieto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the issue. The plot was interesting and the artwork was spectacular without me spoiling anything. the re-designs for the characters aren't overwelming and were really well done despite most of them just having wardrobe changes without having any annoying personality changes. Sally and Rotor were two that were especially well done redesigns. Speaking of Sally she doesn't steal all the glory this time and she isn't involved in any romanctic relationship ever since Ian Flynn began writing these comics. Really all the characters are well written it seems and not a single one annoyed me when reading this issue with Eggman/Robotnik being at his finest. I will admit the plot may be slightly confusing if you haven't read Sonic and Megaman: Worlds Collide, but that's the only problem I have with this book. O yeah and the major cliffhanger at the end is pretty annoying too.

From a financial stand point I wouldn't go out and buy the individual issues. This book contains 4 issues and nowadays 1 comic costs $4. That would cost about $16 to buy all 4. If you buy from here you get all the issues together for 9.50 plus interviews, drawings, and variant covers.

A fair warning to people who haven't read since childhood. The comics are being written and stenciled by Ian Flynn and Tracy Yardley so the comics will be written different and look different. Also some characters such as Julie-Su won't appear anymore. There isn't any major Sonally any more and you can't really expect any pairings besides hints for any of the other characters.

Fantastic! I really enjoyed reading these issues and they're worth a read in my opinion. I personally LOVE the reboot and its a fresh start up to the new Sonic Archie universe, i will miss the old universe even though i never caught up to it in the first place.

I bought this comic book for my grandson who is 8 y.o. (at his request.) We spent quite a while on Amazon shopping for Sonic comic books and he absolutely loves it. The book itself is very sturdy and well made. The pages are thick. The price is great.
