IDW is publishing a new Sonic the Hedgehog comic alongside the existing series, a one-shot special out in October 2018 and ahead of the Team Sonic Racing game that arrives later this year.
Sonic and his teammates Knuckles and Tails journey to a new planet and enter a race unlike any other! With a little help from friends like Amy Rose, Big the Cat, and a few other familiar faces, Sonic must race to prevent an old foe from obtaining a powerful new technology in this story by writer Caleb Goellner (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and longtime Sonic The Hedgehog artist Adam Bryce Thomas.
Caleb Goellner is quoted by IDW as saying:
“I’m so stoked to write Sonic! It’s been a dream of mine ever since my dad surprised me with my first Sonic comic in ’92, so I can’t wait for fans to take this issue for a Spin Dash. It’s been an honor to be on a team working to deliver an issue that’s as fun to read as Team Sonic Racing is to play.”
While Adam Bryce Thomas is quoted as saying:
“I’m thrilled to be part of IDW’s newest comic project. Illustrating action packed scenes is my go-to for Sonic, so what could be better than our rival teams jockeying for position? SEGA is known for its phenomenal racing titles and I’ll be doing my best to bring comic fans the breakneck speed and excitement they expect.”
Getting closer in October…
