Sonic the Hedgehog is Archie Comics Biggest Seller


Staff member

I was a little surprised to learn that Sonic is Archie's biggest success even out selling their signature characters such as Archie, Veronica, and Jughead. In March sales it shows they sold 6,880 copies of issue #186 of the series. Sonic X is their second biggest seller with 4,735 copies sold.

I bought the first 10 issues of the series back when they were first released and I actually stopped buying them because I didn't find them that interesting and figured the series would probably fail after a couple of years. I would have never thought that after 15 years it would still be going strong. I think we can thank the result to a couple of very successful cartoon series in the 90's and recently.
