Synopses & Reviews
The Sonic Archives series has emerged as one of Archie's best-selling trade paperbacks, as fans both new and old can relive the glory days of Sonic the Hedgehog in these high-quality, digitally restored graphic novels, complete with all the classic Sonic stories from the 1990's! Now with Sonic Archives Volume 9, Sonic lovers can add to their collections issues #33-36, stories which are almost impossible to come across now. Stories include: "Heart of Darkness" - Sonic and his friends journey into the mysterious and terrifyingly desolate "Zone of Silence" in search of Sally's father: King Max! But what they find in this bizarre dimension will not only call into question everything they know, but could cost them their lives as well!
The spotlight is split between our favorite hedgehog with an attitude, and his friendly rival Knuckles the Echidna. As Sonic struggles to learn more about the mystery of the Chaos Emeralds and save the King, Knuckles is busy with his own quest which would lead into his epic adventures! And as if that weren't enough, Robotnik declares TOTAL WAR on Sonic with his devastating new army of nigh-invincible soldiers! History unfolds while new questions arise, and Sonic is there to make sure that the past doesn't repeat itself!
