Archie’s Sonic Mega Drive one shot series of comics have been a huge success. So much so that the first Sonic Mega Drive comic, written by Ian Flynn, with art by Tyson Hesse, Matt Herms and Jack Morelli, sold out. A first for Archie Sonic comics. The follow-up, Sonic: Mega Drive – The Next Level, is due out November 2nd and continues the story, despite being another issue #1. Now, Archie has unveiled the third Sonic Mega Drive, dubbed Overdrive which is set to release March 2017.
Editor Vincent Lovallo had this to say about the third installment in an exclusive interview with blastr: “Overdrive picks up right where The Next Level left off with Sonic and friends on the hunt for the mystical Chaos Emeralds. Their power is the only hope our heroes have at stopping Dr. Eggman’s destructive Mega Drive weapon. Featuring a whopping 30 pages of story, the final chapter of the Mega Drive series arrives in comic shops March 2017. You won’t wanna miss this epic conclusion celebrating 25 years of Sonic!”
Sonic Mega Drive – Overdrive will also be written by Flynn, with art by Hesse, Herms and Morelli. Flynn has confirmed that the Sonic Mega Drive story takes place in the Archie Sonic canon, and the upcoming main series arc will also take place in the classic era.
