Sega’s famous hedgehog will be racing his way back into comics with a brand new series starting in April, publisher IDW announced at New York Comic Con. The first month of books will feature one new issue per week.
IDW also announced the creative team for the series – Ian Flynn will be writing, while Tyson Hesse takes over art duties. Flynn worked on the original Sonic series from Archie Comics, contributing to more than 100 issues over the years. Hesse also worked on some of the Archie-published books, such as Sonic Mega Drive in 2016.
Hesse is also known for his work on animating the introduction to the recently released Sonic Mania video game, which can be seen below. IDW’s inaugural Sonic the Hedgehog book arrives in stores on April 4, 2018.
