Sonic The Hedgehog Comics Build Momentum with Sold-Out Annual and Ongoing Series


IDW Publishing
 is humbled to announce that three of its most recent Sonic The Hedgehog comic books – issues #14 and #15 from the ongoing monthly series, as well as Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019 – have completely sold out at the distributor level.

The heat on IDW’s Sonic The Hedgehog has been building as the comic book marches confidently into its second “season” with creators Ian Flynn, Tracy Yardley, and Jack Lawrence’s Metal Virus story arc, so fans are encouraged to rush to their local comic shops to pick up these very desirable – and hot-selling – stories!

The very special Sonic The Hedgehog Annual – featuring a cover by revolutionary Sonic Team artist Yuji Uekawa and a host of creators (including Ian Flynn, James Kochalka, Cavan Scott, Evan Stanley, Gigi Dutreix, and more) – is sure to become a jewel in any fan’s collection.

“There’s a certain kind of magic to a book like the Sonic Annual,” says editor David Mariotte. “It’s rare that you’re so fortunate to be able to put together so many great creators in one book and have their stories naturally go together. I’m just glad to see everyone else picked up on that creative magic too.”

Hardcore fans can enjoy the continuing Sonic adventures monthly in the ongoing series, as well as in collected volumes (Vol. 1: Fallout and Vol. 2: The Fate of Dr. Eggman, as well as the upcoming Vol. 3: Battle for Angel Islandand Vol. 4: Infection). Also, IDW’s highly-anticipated Tangle & Whisper spin-off series promises more action and adventure for the Sonic fanbase over the course of Summer 2019, as the unlikely duo find themselves in hot pursuit of Sonic himself!

For information on how to secure copies of Sonic The Hedgehog, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.
