Single Status Update
What's a good issue to jump into the Archie Sonic comics with? I saw that the series got kind of a reboot with issue 252, but is it best to start there? I would hate to miss any awesome story arcs or the Mega Man crossover.
Start with 248 if you want to read Worlds Collide (But you'll also need certain issues of Mega Man and Sonic Universe to get the full story).
The reboot does a good job of filling you in on past events. Just know that, as of 252, all of Sonic's video game adventures have already happened in one way or another. (Except Unleashed, Fighters, Chronicles, and Lost World)
@Forte-Metallix Huh, I remember a while back when the best starting point was #160 since it was the first one with Ian Flynn. I tried going from there, but ended up just stopping along the way for some reason and didn't pick it back up. Thanks for the input! I might start from 248 just so I can go through the crossover and enjoy the new stuff too.
Well, the pre-reboot has some good stories, too. My recommendations:
-Birthday Bash (160-161)
-Order From Chaos (168-169)
-Eggman Empire (175-177)
-Bold New Moebius (198-197)
-Storming the Eggdome (198-200)
-Iron Dominion (201-212)
As for Sonic Universe, pretty much every issue's a winner. My favorite arcs are Silver Saga, Tails Adventure, Scourge: Lockdown, and Forged in Fire! (#50)
@Forte-Metallix I think I may have gotten all the way to Eggman Empire before, but I'll go ahead and read those story arcs too, thanks! For Sonic Universe, do I need to read that in between any main issues, or is it its own side comic thing that I can read from #1 to the latest?
@Forte-Metallix Actually, no, I remember reading Iron Dominion. I got further in than I remember..huh. Never made it to Genesis though, so I stopped somewhere between there.
