IDW to start Sonic the Hedgehog comic series in 2018

Just announced at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, IDW broke the news at their press conference that they will start publishing Sonic the Hedgehog comics starting 2018. It seemed to be quite obvious that SEGA wasn’t happy with how Archie Comics had been handling the Sonic license when it came to comic books and has now started a publishing partnership with IDW which has quite the in-depth comic licenses including Transformers, TMNT, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, and a lot more.

“Creative teams are currently being formed and a publishing plan is now underway with more details to come at a later date. Writers and artists will be bringing their considerable talents to the comic book world of Sonic. We’ve been speaking with beloved Sonic fan-favorite creators and new creators alike, and are excited to be able to spread specifics about our plans for the comic in the near future,” – Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer

As you can tell, we don’t know if Ian Flynn will be joining Sonic the Hedgehog comic book come 2018, but we do know that Ian Flynn does have a working relationship with IDW as he worked on some of the CGI TMNT books. What are your thoughts? Will be checking out the new Sonic the Hedgehog comicbooks come 2018?

    Really happy to hear that Sonic will continue in comic form, whether or not it will be a continuation of the previous series is anyone’s guess but IDW is a great fit for the series. Here’s hoping that we get some more details soon.

    I’m ecstatic about this! Maybe they’ll pick up where Archie left off (highly unlikely though)

    I’m gonna miss the archie sonic comics but I guess it was bound to happen at some point.

    I just hope the core SATAM characters stick around. They’re what make the comics unique. It would also be a shame to completely abandon that legacy. I don’t mind another reboot; I just don’t want them to disappear.
