After 24 years of telling stories at Archie Comics, Sega and Sonic Team decided to take the Sonic licence over to IDW Publishing where they immediately announced a brand new ongoing series starting with weekly releases all of the month of April! and with today’s reveal from IDW, it appears that Sonic #1 had sold out! To meet the demand from the readers, IDW has announced a second printing will release May 2nd, 2018.
“We know fans have been waiting a long time for this launch, and we couldn’t be happier with their response to the first issue,” said Joe Hughes, editor of Sonic the Hedgehog. “This first issue was the start of a four-week event that kicked off the beginning of a new era for Sonic comics. The new series will feature new adventures with characters new and old and I cannot wait for fans to see what’s in store.”
“The SEGA and IDW teams have worked tirelessly since the announcement last July,” said Michael Cisneros, Licensing Specialist at SEGA of America. “The incredible outpouring of support from our fans these past nine months has made everything worthwhile.”
You can pick up Sonic The Hedgehog #2 at your local comic book store and Comixology this week.
