Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog turns 27 this year, and there has been a resurgence in interest in the character on all fronts. Diamond Select Toys is ready to fill the product void with a number of new items on display this week at Toy Fair 2018.
At breakneck speed, IDW Publishing is fast approaching a brand new era of Sonic the Hedgehog comics starting with a new #1 issue. Anticipation for this exciting launch runs high and, as a way to express gratitude to the fans for their patience, the series will kick off with a new issue each and every Wednesday during the month of April. Following the release of the first four issues, the ongoing series will continue on a monthly release schedule from May onward.
A few days ago, it was announced that Archie Comics and SEGA had parted ways with the Sonic the Hedgehog property. As we suspected at the time, Sonic was bound to find a new home, and it has at IDW Publishing.
For years, Sonic the Hedgehog was a familiar face in the solicitations section from Archie Comics. All of that comes to an end as Sega and Archie Comics end their publishing partnership.
Archie Comics releases a new Sonic one-shot this week, and we have a sneak peek of the issue, after the jump!
