SEGA News Bits: Sonic the Hedgehog comics coming to IDW in 2018

While we are a bit late on talking about this due to the long weekend away from technology, we are covering the big news that Sonic the Hedgehog comics are back but this time with IDW as a publisher. If you guys didn’t hear, Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog series ended less than a week ago and SEGA was quick to announce their new partnership with IDW! If you guys watched our previous SEGA News Bits episodes discussing all things Sonic the Hedgehog comics related, you’d know that we have wanted the Sonic the Hedgehog brand to end up at IDW for a long while. So on this episode of the SEGA News Bits we talk about Sonic joining IDW, the potential crossovers, and our hopes for how the transition is handled. There is still a lot of details to hash out on how IDW will be handling their own series, but what do you wanna see? Let us know in the comments below and will you be picking up the new IDW Sonic the Hedgehog series come 2018?

Sonic Comic Series Now Going To IDW

An announcement has been made that the Sonic series is going in a new direction, with IDW publishing!

While this is great news, nothing has been mentioned as to whether the original Freedom Fighter gang will show up in this new beginning. Sega and DiC are the original copyright holders of the original Freedom Fighters, so it is very possible! Stay tuned for more information as it comes in!
