Sonic the hedgehog timeline (comic)


4 posts in this topic

So i am trying to figure out the timeline and the order of reading the comics since alot of them mostly the early issues have come back out in a release. While I havent followed in a few years i have gotten back into wanting to read the series. I know theres some isse with having to get some other issues that are yet to be released, but what is the exact timeline of events that happens? 

 

It seems now with the special im reading theres now a pre something timeline a future timeline and the sonic universe timeline in the far far future. It isnt making much sense but the only one I can tell that is in its own is the sonic boom timeline. Any help regarding this and where some of the new characters like nicole came from? Thanks.

If you want a guide for what order to read the comics in, it can be found here:

Most of the comics follow the timeline as they go along.  There are some issues that have a '25/30 Years later' stories, but they are mostly self contained.  Sonic Universe is not it;s own timeline.  Sonic Universe has extra stories that take place alongside the normal comics, except for one arc which involved the aforementioned "30 Years Later."

However, as of issue 252, the whole Sonic Comic has been rebooted, essentially starting off with a whole new world.  So if you're new to the comics, unless you have access to the old ones, that is the best place to start.

Also, Nicole isn't a new character,  She was part of SatAM, and has been in the comics from some of the earliest issues.

Oh really? Is satam part of the comic canon then? I never watched it but I do know of it. Is there any way to get all the missing comics like the specials and such? Personally I prefer physical over digital but if digital is the only way to go now references will help, i do have alot of issues before 252 but not many after.

SatAM is not part of the Comic canon, but the original comics were based on SatAM.  As for the missing comics, well there are some other topics here covering that, though that's to the infamous argument between writers and publishers it's likely some will never see reprint.
