    Sonic Boom #1 was a surprising and enjoyable first outing for this series, hopefully indicating good things for the upcoming video games and TV series. It's rather accessible, the story and humor were a lot of fun, the writing was solid, and the artwork was enjoyable and really brought a lot of personality to the series. Even as a person who's not big into Sonic that much, I had a good time with this and I feel that fans, newcomers, and youngins alike can equally get something out of this. Definitely worth a look.

    All in all Sonic Boom #1 is a funny comic that has a well written story and fantastic art. The story isn't for everyone since this is aimed more towards fans of Sonic games and Sonic Boom show who also happen to be casual readers of comics. It's a fun comic that will probably get you interested in the show if you aren't already. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Oct 29, 2014

    As a story in itself, Sonic BOOM #1 is not going to appeal to adults and kids equally, the way an issue of Adventure Time does, but it is a great gateway book for youngsters to a whole host of things their parents have enjoyed cartoons, comics, and video games. The script will make them laugh, the art will keep them excited, and the twist ending will make them gasp. What could be better than that? Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 29, 2014

    Evan Stanley brings a clean, expressive look to the series that is very much in keeping with the aesthetic of the games. At this point Archie has the look of the Sonic games down pat with their various comic adaptations, so there's little to complain about apart from the goofy, pseudo-hipster character designs. Sonic's scarf is ridiculous (a fact the characters at least acknowledge in the short backup strip) and Knuckles looks like he's occupying an oversized costume of himself. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Neil Rodriguez Oct 29, 2014

    Overall, Sonic Boom number one was an ok start. It starts off fast and fun but in the middle, the story had some problems and the character dialogue was a bit cheesy but the artwork somehow saves the book from being a complete bore. Read Full Review
