Book Review : Sonic Super Digest

100_9255

With all the Sonic Comics going on at once, from Sonic Universe to Knuckles’ own comic series, it’s tough to keep up with all of them at once. And what if you get it and you don’t like it? Well, to solve the lack of knowledge in an online debate, and even give some comic series’ a shot, you should check out Sonic Super Digest!


As the title suggests, SSD is a comic book with many comics inside. From the SatAM meets AoStH-style 90’s comics to what’s new in the Sonic comic world, this has so many different Sonic comics you’re bound to like one of them.

Buying this (which regularly is only four bucks) will give you a taste of classic and modern comics, some of which are very similar to the 90’s SatAM, but adds some modern Sonic fun to the mix. There are also character info pages, video game adaptions, and much more that can satisfy your (or my) undying obsession with Sonic the Hedgehog. Two SSD’s ago there was a super-sized issue, and even though it did cost more than the others, it was packed FULL of classic Sonic funnies and adventure.

Need another reason to buy? Well, the subscription could save you lots of money! Small problem-they ship it in a little plastic baggie, and the book could get damaged.

Regarding the content, you’ll find this a family-friendly comic worth the time to read, especially if you like the games. One thing I wasn’t a fan of is Bunnie Rabbot striking a pose and referring to herself as the “Sax Cymbal” of the Freedom Fighters. Obviously this is a pun on instruments hinting that she is the sex symbol of the Freedom Fighters. Though the character is far from nude, she does under dress with a lowish cut top.

    I used to read them as well, I would always grab them if they were available at Barnes Nobles comics section 🙂

    Jeremiah, which do you recommend to catch up on the new stuff in the sonic world? I went to the website but there are…so many…..to pick from, which is a solid one on the newer plots. Thanks!

      The Sonic Comic world is a huge complex spider web full of gold. So tangled is this web that I don’t even bother it. I did when I was little , just would get whatever Comic , Usually Sonic X. But for the best Sonic Super Digest would be your best bet. Alot of stuff to chose from , and if you don’t like the Comic , you don’t have a whole book you don’t like ( There have been a few stories that bored me) . Usually I’d say grab whatever has something to do with Eggman , because he being there usually means the plot is good/ Classic based.

    I LOVE SONICX! I have a couple DVD’s and some tapes (yes , I have a VCR) , but I prefer SatAM. Sonic X is a good plotted representation of the Modern Games and SatAM is a good plotted representation of the Classic Games. I like the Classics more than the Modern , which would explain why I like SatAM best.

    This brings me back to my childhood. I grew up on Sonic and read a lot of the comics, too. I had some of the old Sonic the Hedgehog issues, but I enjoyed Sonic X more (I didn’t like the Freedom Fighter arcs as much). 🙂

    Good to know the site covers its share of Sonic!
