Ian Flynn, the man who has worked on Sonic comics over at Archie, has joined IDW Publishing and Sega to bring to life new Sonic tales next year. The news was announced this past weekend at New York Comic Con and the news was revealed through the video below!
“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!”
“Ian has a strong connection with both the character and the fans so there was no hesitation in bringing him on to launch this new Sonic series,” said Sonic the Hedgehog editor Joe Hughes. “Not only is he a great writer, but he genuinely loves these characters. His pitches have been nothing short of amazing and we are very excited to get this out to the Sonic community who have been supportive from day one.”
New Sonic comics will start in April 2018 with three issues arriving weekly after that.
