“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,”

“We are ecstatic about this partnership with IDW,” said Ivo Gerscovich, Chief Brand Officer for Sonic the Hedgehog. “We know they’ll serve as a good home for the new adventures of Sonic, his friends and foes.”


IDW Publishing is known for other popular franchises such as Star Trek, My Little Pony, and Ghostbusters. Recently it was announced that IDW Publishing would also be involved in the upcoming Gears of War comic series set to release in 2018. For more on that story click here.
