I honestly thought more people would be excited for this! Anyway we have new details up on our site! Ian Flynn is returning to write the new comics and April 4th, 2018 is the date of the first issue!

Ian Flynn
 
"I've been a SEGA kid for life, and Sonic has been my career for over a decade," said Flynn. "I'm overjoyed to keep running with the little blue hedgehog, and especially excited to be expanding my relationship with IDW at the same time. I can't wait to show you what I'm made of as we reach for the stars and explore the endless possibilities!"

Well, this is certainly interesting! I assume it's for this mostly because I would love to see my artists friends get jobs working on Sonic but I assume Sega isn't going to let them touch the games unless your name is Tyson Hesse(What can I say, the guy earned it.)

A paperback book, presumably containing the first four issues has been found on Amazon, coming on September 18, 2018 and with a price of $15.99, here's the description
Quote:
 

Join the Blue Blur for brand-new adventures as he and his friends race around the world to defeat the evil Dr. Eggman's robotic forces!

The evil genius Dr. Eggman has been foiled--but the work of Sonic the Hedgehog isn't over yet! In the aftermath of the latest epic battle, rogue robots continue to attack small villages around the world. In order to succeed, Sonic will need the help of his friends Tails, Knuckles, and Amy, along with some new and surprising allies. This new collection from acclaimed writer Ian Flynn features the blue blur like you've never seen him before. Gotta go fast!

Well what does everyone think with some older writers returning? I'm sure they won't have mobius anymore but maybe they'll create a similar world/setting for these comics?

If you're rooting for the Freedom Fighters, not looking good but still who knows. They probably want to leave that door open in the future.

No fudge this, the freedom fighters have plenty of fans still.
I know Sega has no respect for them as they are not generic lame character #9746 who has telekinetic powers, is silver and from the future.
Not to mention generic lame character #8900 a evil black version of sonic who rides a bike and carries a gun and has a crap game named after him.
Then there is lame generic character #7906 a rabbit who can fly with their ears.
Or lame generic character #5009 a big fat cat who fishes things.

Want to know why the freedom fighters have fans, they actually had personalities both inside and outside of the comics.

fudge YOU SEGA.

I'm really excited for the new comic series, especially since, so far, it's looking like it'll borrow much more heavily from storylines and characters used in the games. I also think the new character Tangle looks awesome - I can't wait to see what she's like, and hopefully they'll end up putting her in the games at some point as well.

I'm hoping to see many different story arcs in the comics that deepen and broaden the stories told in the games, as well as completely original story arcs unrelated to the games. I feel like this would be the best way to expand on the lore of Sonic's world: we could get comics deepening game lore, developing lore in between games, and just deepening the lore in general by telling stories set in Sonic's world that don't directly relate to any of the games.

I also really hope to see characters have a chance to shine that are sadly not used anywhere near often enough in the games, such as Cream & Cheese the Chao, Blaze, Marine, Jet, Wave, Storm, Big the Cat, Sticks (even though she's technically Boom, I think she fits in great with the main Sonic cast), and Eggman Nega.
