Since this is the first time TSS has covered the Archie comics, I’m sure there will be a few questions, so I’ll go ahead and answer them here. I have been meaning to start covering the Archie comics for some time. I had asked Dread if he thought it was a good idea, and he agreed. To my knowledge, these comics are mostly carried in America, so this news will be largely irrelevant for anyone in the PAL regions, although it is possible to order them. I will also be covering the Sonic X series. I would strongly reccomend Sonic fans picking up both comic books, as the writing for StH has improved considerably since Ian Flynn came on board, and Sonic X…well, Sonic X is just plain fun to read, whether you liked the cartoon or not.
