OMG! OMG! “The History of Sonic the Hedgehog” Available for Pre-order on Amazon! OMG!

Can you just imagine how excited I was when I first heard of this piece of news (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C, & Exhibit D).

Personally, I’m not at all looking forward to the pages in the book dedicated to that dreadful Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 game; dear Lord, that game was abysmal……just, UGHH!  Anyway, you can check out a few preview pages over on the blog (I know I did; several, several, SEVERAL times!
