Sonic the Hedgehog #52 Review

Today I'm going to look at something different. If your a gamer you probably heard of Sonic the Hedgehog. The original Sonic the Hedgehog for the Genesis was the first game I ever played. So without further delay let's take a look at Sonic the Hedgehog #52. The cover is good, it has a Noir feeling to it and it suits the theme of the comic. The comic opens with Sonic and Tails running around. They stop when they see a floating Leisure Suit. Random.

Sonic decides to chase after the suit, which lead him into cave. The cave transports him into another dimension where everything is drawn like a 50's Noir movie, and Sonic is a detective. This makes my brain hurt, what was the leisure suit, why is everything Noir all of a sudden, and why is Sonic a detective. Anyway Detective Sonic is waiting for someone in a dance hall. It turns out the person he's waiting for is Sally, who wants him to locate her "friend" Nicole who knows how to stop Robotnik from turning people into robots. Sonic excepts, and runs to find Nicole.

Sonic finds a abandoned factory, it has robot oil in it so Sonic suspects Robotnik. Sonic talk's to his Uncle Chuck through a wrist watch communicator, and asks if there are any robots around. There are four, and Sonic goes looking for them. He finds them, and two of them look pretty familiar don't they:

It's Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo from Mystery Science Theater 3000. This is something else Archie's Sonic Comics likes to do,put cameos in the background. Anyway Sonic easily beats three of them, and only Crow remains. Sonic takes something from Crow which distracts him and he flies into a building. The thing Sonic took from Crow was Sally's "friend" Nicole which turns out to be a hand-held computer. Sonic returns the computer to Sally but Robotnik has found them.

Robotnik reveals that Sally is the "Princess" of the rebellion, and the computer has information that could defeat him. Robotnik is about to finish them but Sonic uses a power ring to super speed away with Sally. Robotnik leaves to go after them but they where really hiding under a table. Sonic arranges for a plane to take Sally to safety, and she asks him if he wants to join the rebellion. At first he disagrees but excepts after he realizes together they could stop Robotnik once and for all. The comic ends with Sonic going back to his dimension not understanding what just happened.

This comic is good but a bit confusing. I like the 50's Noir feel of everything, and the story wasn't the worst. Out of all the classic Sonic comics I read this one is probably one of the best. The story's now are much better, and I do recommend them if your a fan of the Sonic games. I would love to review another one in the future.

Rating: 3/5
