    All in all, there's not a ton of surprises here. If you're familiar with Sonic then you know what to expect but that's a good thing. Sometimes familiar is best. What you get here is a great set of stories that are perfect for nostalgia buffs and a bridge for new and old readers both in comic experience but also actual age. It's not everyday you get a solid wholesome but not lacking read for all ages yet here we are, Sega fans rejoice! Read Full Review
