Sonic: Mega Drive- Overdrive was intended to be the third and final one-shot comic book special created in celebration of the Sonic franchise's 25th anniversary before it was cancelled. It is a sequel to the previous specials, Sonic: Mega Drive and Sonic: Mega Drive - The Next Level.
SONIC kicks things into “OVERDRIVE”!: The Classic Sonic sensation comes to its startling finale! Dr. Eggman has managed to gather up all seven of the Ancient Gears which will super-charge his latest creation—the Mega Drive! Now Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose are in a race against time to gather the Chaos Emeralds and stop Dr. Eggman before the vicious device launches! Featuring cover art by rising star Tyson Hesse!
