IDW Sonic the Hedgehog #1 sells out

IDW and SEGA have announced that the first issue of the new Sonic the Hedgehog comics series has sold out! Joe Hughes, editor of Sonic the Hedgehog, stated “We know fans have been waiting a long time for this launch, and we couldn’t be happier with their response to the first issue. This first issue was the start of a four-week event that kicked off the beginning of a new era for Sonic comics. The new series will feature new adventures with characters new and old and I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store.”

Second printings have already begun, with more issue #1’s expected to hit shops on May 2, 2018. You can see the cover for the second printing above. Congrats to the IDW Sonic team! Don’t forget, issue 2 released yesterday and issues 3 and 4 release in the following two weeks and then the series switches to monthly.

The preview for issue six of IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog is here! Following up from the previous issue, six features the story “The Fate of Dr. Eggman” Part 2. The issue is to feature Eggman, Shadow, Rouge and the Chaotix. Oh and of course, Sonic. It is becoming pretty clear that each issue, at least in this early run, will introduce new and returning characters to the IDW canon. After the break, check out the full solicits and a preview of a IDW Sonic collector’s box set!

Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course board game up for pre-order

We already talked about the Shinobi 7 created Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers board game that hit Kickstarter in February, but it seems that same game now has competition with IDW Games’ Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course featuring classic Sonic characters which is up for pre-order on Game Nerdz. The game is part of the ‘IDW’ brand, so it seems we might get a classic Sonic the Hedgehog comic to tie-in? At the very least, there should be issue #1 of IDW Sonic included according to retail listings on other sites. Also to note, this board game only costs $18.97 to pre-order and has a MSRP of $29.99!
