SABRINA AND SONIC FAVORITES RECEIVE THE HEROIC SPOTLIGHT THIS JUNE!



If there’s one thing long-time readers of Archie’s SONIC THE HEDGEHOG and SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH comics love, it’s the rich supporting characters and situations in each series. Particularly beloved are a magical talking cat and a certain group of heroes shown when they are “all grown up”: SALEM and the cast of MOBIUS: 25 YEARS LATER!



This June, both get to shine in special stories.



First up, in the pages of SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #103, the saga of Salem as a young wizard continues. Before he was enchanted and transformed into a black cat, Salem was a young man with ever-developing magical powers. Unfortunately, those powers can’t seem to keep him and his scruffy Uncle Mort out of a jam, as the wizard Todicus has been restored, which spells even more trouble for our heroes! It’s a race against time as Salem and Mort try to escape the Lizarmyn army. The question is – does everyone make it out? The answer may surprise you!



Next, in SONIC UNIVERSE #5, we’re going back to the future! It’s now thirty years down the line and King Sonic is on the throne. He has his hands full with the tiny royal twins, but fan-favorite Lara-Su is there to help. As the world prepares to celebrate the new royal family, a deadly plot is hatched from the shadows…and you’ll never guess who shows up at the end! It’s the action and adventure you’ve come to expect from “Mobius: 25 Years Later” tales…not to mention all your favorite good guys and bad guys! The future has never been more frantic…and it’s up to Sonic to make sure it’s infinite! SCRIPT: Ian Flynn. ART: Tracy Yardley!
