Sonic the Comic Video Retrospective

There is a lot online to be read about the history of the American Archie published Sonic comic book series, but the British Sonic the Comic series that ran between 1992 and 2001 is rarely talked about outside of a small percentage of the gigantic Sonic fan base. Luckily Youtuber BlackDogBrew has gone out of his way to give us a massive video retrospective of the comic for those who have always been intriged about it. When I mean massive I mean massive, got a couple hours to spare? If not, the very first video gives you a nice summary of the comic's history, before it gets into the stories of each character. Either way I've embedded the entire playlist above.

It's a great idea, and a lot of work has gone into it, but it's a lot of stuff I already know (I was THERE man!), with an annoying voice. Mind if I skip this one? Sorry.

insightful video! i grew up on the US comics, so I never knew what STC was all about. As for the narrator's voice, didn't bother me. Sounded like a BBC field reporter.
