Sonic Forces, the new 3D Sonic the Hedgehog game, is set to release in little under a month. To promote the new game, the Sonic the Hedgehog social media pages have announced that they will be sharing several short comics about the lore of the game.

The first of these short comics was released today (October 12) and tells the story of a rookie who is a cowardly member of the resistance with low self-esteem. This character’s narration explains that he wants to be a hero like Sonic or Tails, but that he is too cowardly to do so. Dr. Eggman then attacks the base, forcing the rookie to fight alongside Vector, Espio and Charmy from Team Chaotix. The comic is only eight pages long, but the full thing is available to view for free on Sonic the Hedgehog social media pages such as Facebook and Twitter.
It is not currently known how many more comics will be released (the “(1/2)” in the tweet to the right refers to that being the first of two tweets about the topic, not this being the first of two comics) or what frequency at which they will be released. Sonic Forces is set to come out on November 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
