This article is about an unreleased issue.

Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 293 would have been the two hundred and ninety-third issue in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by Archie Comics.


Sonic and Honey are on the set of the latest, greatest(?) super hero show—Sonic Man Heroes! But when Dr. Eggman crashes the scene, ranting and raving about creative differences, things get very interesting! Featuring cover art by comics extraordinaire Tracy Yardley and a “Arcade” variant by Sonic comics legend Patrick.
