The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia is the official "go to" resource for details on the Archie-Sonic canon, comprised of a number of Data Files detailing characters, places, and events from the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Comic Universe. It covers events up to StH: #241 and SU: #44, making it a near complete compilation of information on the original Pre-Super Genesis Wave continuity.

Official Solicitation[]

Sonic the Hedgehog is the longest running video game-inspired comic ever! But who is Sonic? Why do they call Dr. Robotnik "Eggman"? What is a Chaos Emerald, and what exactly does it do? Sonic's world is a big place, and it's easy to get lost in over 300 issues worth of stories. Enter this essential reference volume to save the day! This all-encompassing illustrated encyclopedia is the ultimate guide to Sonic's world, loaded with key information on characters, teams, magical artifacts and more! All this, plus an extensive world map of Mobius and a timeline that sheds new light on past events.

List of Data Files[]

Background Information[]

New Information[]


  • Perhaps due to the fact that the encyclopedia is the largest book containing original Sonic material from Archie, several editing errors are present. This includes but is not limited to an incomplete sentence on Rotor's article on page 10 and the book referring to itself as the "Who's Who" encyclopedia on page 109. The mistake on Rotor's article, however, was corrected in the second printing.

Cameos and References[]

  • A depiction of the earliest drawing of Eggman from Sega (the one wearing pajamas) appears on the cover. Since there is no entry about him on the book, this addition is most likely a display of artistic license.
  • The table of contents contains a number of in-jokes/references, including:
    • "Gods of Mobius: 'Face to faith with those who walk!'" - "Face to Faith" was the name of the vocal soundtrack to Sonic and the Black Knight.
    • "Other Freedom Fighters: 'Freedom is the fight of all sentient beings!'" - This line is a reference to the catchphrase of Optimus Prime from the Transformers franchise.
    • "The Eggman Empire: 'He's got the master plan!'" - This quote is an excerpt from "E.G.G.M.A.N.", Dr. Eggman's theme from Sonic Adventure 2.
    • "Magical Talismans: '7 Emeralds + 50 Rings: Jump up and press "A"!'" - This is a reference to how a player can transform into Super Sonic in Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
    • "The World of Mobius Prime: 'Planetary Pieces: A world of Sonic Adventure!'" - "A world of Sonic Adventure" refers to Sonic World Adventure, the Japanese title to Sonic Unleashed. "Planetary Pieces" was the name of its soundtrack.
    • "The Future?...: 'Dreams (and nightmares) of a future absolution'" - This is a reference to Silver the Hedgehog's theme in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), "Dreams of an Absolution".
