Unboxing: Not Enough Rings – A Sonic the Hedgehog Parody Comic

2013 was a big year for SEGA related Kickstarter projects. We saw the successfully funded SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works, as well as unsuccessful attempts at relaunching the Boogerman and Ecco franchises. Not Enough Rings joins the ranks of the former projects, as it was not only a success, but it is among the projects seeing completion in 2014.

Collecting all 93 strips from the online parody comic of the same name, Not Enough Rings follows Sonic as he speeds through his SEGA Genesis adventures. The strips are packed with funny nods to gameplay quirks, plot points, and character traits. The whole collection is really a love letter to the classic Sonic games with just enough naughtiness to retain that SEGA edge. Thanks to going over their goal, several improvements were made to the originally planned book, including a hardcover and higher quality paper. The book even includes a nifty little red and white placeholder ribbon, which resembles the one seen in the Sonic logo. Overall, despite what the cover image may say, we give the Not Enough Rings book a well deserved thumbs up!

    I wasn’t able to help fund for this, but is there a way to be able to purchase this book now, or is it just for those who backed it?

    As far as I know, they haven’t planned for that yet. At least, according to a post made on their kickstarter in November. However I suggest sending them a private message on kickstarter. You never know, you might get lucky.

    You should do everyone a favor and scan the 5 comics for the competition stages, since they’re book-only and the book came in limited quantities. >.>

      Unfortunately, I can’t do that. The writer’s asked that their work not be reproduced and shared outside of the book.
