Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Special, an 80-page comic, continues the trend of $8.99 comics for special occasions. The three stories will feature some high-profile talent, including Babysitters Club artist Gale Gilligan and Adventure Zone’s McElroy Brothers. Other creators on the book include writer Ian Flynn and artists Mauro Fonseca, Reggie Graham, Aaron Hammerstrom and Thomas Rothlisberger.
Covers will include an A cover by Sonic Team, B cover by Christina-Antoinette Neofotistou, and two retailer incentive variants with art by Patrick Spaziante, and by Tyson Hesse.
The 30th anniversary campaign is also encompassing other products, including a history of the property from Dark Horse Comics (see "’Sonic the Hedgehog’ Marks 30 Years of Fandom") and a new card game from Steamforged Games (see "Steamforged Teases ‘Sonic the Card Game’").
