For years, Sonic the Hedgehog was a familiar face in the solicitations section from Archie Comics. All of that comes to an end as Sega and Archie Comics end their publishing partnership.

The announcement was posted via the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account yesterday.

“After 24 years of memorable storytelling, Sega of America will conclude their Sonic the Hedgehog publishing partnership program with Archie Comics,” the statement reads. “This does not mark the end of Sonic in comics, but signifies Sega of America’s decision to take a different direction for the series that will be announced at a later date. Sega would like to thank Sonic’s amazing fans for their loyalty and passion over all the years. Sega looks forward to providing more information soon.”

Archie started publishing Sonic the Hedgehog in November 1992.

What direction is Sego going with the property? Will there be no more comics based on the popular video game character, or will we hear the property is being picked up by another publisher?
