Official Solicitation

SONIC is BACK in “Genesis of a Hero” Part One: It’s Sonic’s 25th Anniversary and we’re celebrating in style—retro-style that is! See Sonic in his first climactic show-down with Dr. Eggman, straight from the gameplay of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game! But what happens after the battle? And what new force arises once the dust has settled? It’s the story you know with a new twist! Featuring cover art by the legendary Patrick Spaziante and a “Best Buds” variant by the lovely Genevieve FT!

Background Information

  • Like the "Genesis" story arc (created to celebrate Sonic's 20th anniversary) this arc celebrates Sonic's 25th anniversary. Like the former arc, it uses the term "Genesis" as part of its title, in reference to the SEGA Genesis console, where the first ever Sonic game appeared.

Cameos and References

  • The sidebar on the main cover resembles the border used on SEGA Genesis boxarts during the first half of its life.
  • Sonic's pose on the main cover loosely resembles the one he makes in the original games ending cutscene.
