Sonic the Hedgehog hasn’t just been a gaming icon for a couple decades, he’s also been in comics for nearly as long. The comics by Archie have been key in fleshing out the mythology, as well as bringing characters like Mega Man into the fold via crossovers. But now, IDW is taking over the comic and starting it off with a reboot. However, if you were a fan of the recent comics, you’ll be happy to hear that the writer of them, Ian Flynn is writing the IDW version.
This was revealed at New York Comic Con, where Ian noted:
“I’ve been a Sega kid for life, and Sonic has been my career for over a decade.I’m overjoyed to keep running with the little blue hedgehog, and especially excited to be expanding my relationship with IDW at the same time. I can’t wait to show you what I’m made of as we reach for the stars and explore the endless possibilities!”
The Sonic The Hedgehog comic is coming to IDW next April.
