Sonic the Hedgehog, Book 1
This collection reaches back nearly two decades in time to bring back the original Sonic comic book adventures, all presented here in black and white. Sonic the Hedgehog is a videogame phenomenon that got turned into a successful comic and animated series.
The series is chock full of humor, predominantly slapstick and exactly the kind that kids love. Popular artist Patrick Spaziante introduces the entire book and reveals some of insights into what went into making the comics way back then. Throughout the book’s 500-plus pages, readers get 20 issues’ worth of Sonic stories, all funny and all appropriate for all ages. Fans will appreciate the presence of fan-favorite Scott Shaw!’s pencils here (if you are old enough to remember Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew, you’ll love seeing his art again here).
Even though the stories are now some 20 years old, they hold up well and present important lessons (but never in a heavy-handed way) that will resonate with kids today.
