Sonic Universe is a comic book series set within Archie Comics's Sonic the Hedgehog continuity, designed to expand the horizon of that fictional universe. Sonic Universe deals with various characters throughout the fictional universe, including Shadow the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna and many more. The series subsequently surpassed the defunct Knuckles the Echidna (comic series) as the longest running spinoff of the series.
Fleetway (Producers of the UK-based Sonic The Comic series), produced a similar series of stories called "Sonic's World" from issue 26 onwards; it, too, expanded the fictional universe, following various characters in the Sonic universe on their own adventures, which eventually crossed over into the core series on numerous occasions.
The series follows a unique format, in which its lead character and storyline changes every four issues. The storylines usually occur concurrently with those in the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic book, but typically take place in different locations. Sonic himself often does not appear in a storyline at all, except for occasional supporting appearances.
Sonic Universe is published monthly by Archie Comics alongside its parent title Sonic the Hedgehog. The first issue was released on February 25, 2009 and now fills the role of "second monthly Sonic comic" that was left open by the cancellation of Sonic X.

Famous quotes containing the word universe:
“Why inspire in us a horror of our being?... To look upon the universe as a prison cell and all men as criminals about to be executed is the idea of a fanatic.”
