The last time they did this was with Sonic Generations, which came out in the same month Generations did.
Well... Archie Comics has a new Sonic series out at the moment called "Sonic Super Special" which is a quarterly issue. It releases and issue every 4 months or so.
The second issue came out a few days ago... here it is.
Have a look at whats inside...
See that? Issue 3 will have a Sonic 4 Episode 2 issue. If thats the case and they're going to try and get the comic out when the game is due out, Episode 2 would have a release date of somewhere in the middle of April to May.
Bare in mind this is far from concrete, at the moment, but archie comics do try to get their adaptations as close as possible to the release date, so they may know something we don't and have accidentally let the goose... urm... urm... go to... Grimsby?
Go read Barry's article.
