  1. I don’t think they are right about Sonic being the longest running continuously published licensed comic of all time. Off the top of my head, Walt Disney Comics and Stories ran 263 issues at Dell without any breaks, and I would consider the Gold Key/Whitman issues to be part of the same run, so that goes to issue 499 (Whitman actually went to 510, but 499 was the last monthly issue before Whitman’s distribution problems lead them to start publishing irregularly). And I don’t know if that’s the longest, it’s just the first one I thought of…
