This is a great reference manuel for fans of the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic books series. Content in this encyclopedia also covers the spin-off comic books such as Sonic Universe. This long running comic book series has introduced us to a myriad of great and interesting characters and stories. If your like me, who has just jumped into the series around issue #200 or so, this book is a no-brainer to find out fully what is going on. In addition to character/place profiles within the Sonic universe, this encyclopedia also has a timeline of events in the Sonic world. This timeline covers pre-issue #1 all the way to the current issue (#245+ something--I am guessing as I am not quite there yet). I highly recommend this encyclopedia, and also I would encourage fellow Sonic fans to just jump into the comic book series wherever you want as I did as the stories, artwork, and characters are all fantastic.

Having always wanted to know a few things about the comics in comparison to the games, I came across this little gem of a book. It's rather refreshing and fascinating to find out something new about some of the major characters, along with their allies and enemies. The book also has plenty of excellent artwork for each subject; along with some tidbits as to what makes them unique.

For someone like myself who hasn't had the chance to keep up with the comics, this is a fine way to get started and learn a few things beforehand; but only enough to where it doesn't completely give it all away. Pair this up with the archive volumes if you are able to (which is what I did), or if you already have some recent issues on hand and are not sure what to make of certain details.

So if you want to get in on the action and really have an appreciation for Sonic, pick up a copy and you just might find out something you didn't know about Sonic.

I bought this for my kids which are hooked on anything Sonic the Hedgehog. They love him. I read through it to see if anything was inappropriate, everything was up to my standards. Nothing above G rating here.

My son is 11 and a true Sonic lover. He is a true die hard fan so when he saw this book he asked for it. He is autistic and often I write reviews letting others know of toys or things that may be great for autistic kids as well. (They can be so hard to shop for). His reading level is 3rd-4th grade so he can not read all the words. That matters not! He tells me the book is awesome, he really likes it. The character pictures are stylish and very well done. I was surprised with the amount of information on the characters but it is an encyclopedia after all. He spent a great deal of time with the book and often grabs it from the shelf to look at. The pages are smooth and thick. I just love the way the book feels in the hands. I included some pictures of my son with the book.

My daughter has followed in my footsteps and is a huge sonic fan. She loves the book. Our only complaint is that it doesn't show you how to pronounce the names correctly. Other than that, I would recommend this to any fan

My 11 year old son got this book for Christmas. When all the presents were done he promptly went to his room and read the entire book. He says there is tons of Sonic information. Other characters, the villains, you name it!!

If your like me and can't afford the subscription or going out to buy it every single month, then this book is for you. It explains the comic's universe and it's entire happenings from the very beginning to the most current issue since it's release. The book skims over events-pointing out the main focus of each arc and matter that has affected the characters and their families. As a huge Sonic nerd, this book is just amazing for me. Now there is no fun little tid bits like quizzes or games. This is a full-on textbook style learning experience, but it would take a lie to say that it wasn't fun.
