Video games' fastest hedgehog beats up a lot of other animals in his comic-book adventures. Humans, too. If you want to see the guys who've given Sonic his toughest battles in illustrated form, they're all in one handsomely presented place now.
Archie Comics is putting the spotlight on the villains who plague Sonic's life in an all-new collection culled from the character's various series over the years. Sure, you've got the all-too-familiar Dr. Eggman and Metal Sonic, familiar from the games they've appeared in. But, other evildoers like Mecha Sally and Ixis Naugus show up in Best of Sonic the Hedgehog Villains, making it great for Sonic fans who want to see everybody their favourite fast guy has faced up against. The hardcover's on sale tomorrow. Official description follows:
