• Sonic the Hedgehog #1 SEGA, Fall 1991 Original 1st Print MINI Comic CGC 7.0 First Sonic solo comic ever!!

- SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #1 mini - EARLIEST KNOWN appearance of Sonic the Hedgehog, irregardless, of the information documented by Overstreet, which is, Sonic #0, Sonic 1/4, which is dated, from early 1992.

Sonic #1 by Sega, from the Fall of 1991, pre-dates any known appearance to date by nearly a year! The first game in the franchise was released on June 23, 1991, in order to provide Sega with a mascot to rival Nintendo's flagship character Mario (see 1991 in video gaming)

This comic dates real close to the first intial game release date!

Sonic's first comic appearance was in a promotional comic printed in Disney Adventures magazine (and also given away as a free pull-out with a copy of Mean Machines magazine), which established a backstory for the character involving the origin of his color and abilities and the transformation of kindly scientist Dr. Ovi Kintobor into the evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik. Numerous British publications, including "Sega handbook" Stay Sonic (1993), four novels published by Virgin Books (1993–1994) and the comic book Sonic the Comic (1993–2001) used this premise as their basis.

This comic pre-dates any of the above appearances!

The American comics published by Archie Comics, Sonic the Hedgehog (1993–), Sonic X (2005–2008) and Sonic Universe (2009-) are based on the settings established by earlier animated TV series, the ABC "SatAM" cartoon, the Sonic X anime and an expansion to the series respectively. The former series is currently the second longest-running licensed comic series in the history of American comic books, second only to Marvel's Conan series (first issue released in 1970). In France two comic books named "Sonic Adventures" were published by Sirène in 1994.

The comic universe, which took place on the planet Mobius (later revealed to actually be Earth when the series went the way of the Sonic Adventure games), told the tale of at least a dozen main characters other than Sonic who had banded together, The Freedom Fighters, in order to stop Robotnik from roboticizing the citizens of Knothole Village, destroying the forest, and just generally causing havoc.
