IDW Publishing’s Sonic the Hedgehog line of comics is going to have some major changes happening.   IDW announced illustrator Evan Stanley will be taking over the ongoing, main Sonic the Hedgehog title as both writer and illustrator beginning with the release of Sonic the Hedgehog #33. Stanley is set to pick things up after the conclusion of the ongoing Metal Virus plot in what IDW calls “an action-packed, friendship fueled new arc.”

IDW and Sega also announced that Flynn and artist Jack Lawrence are set to produce a new spinoff miniseries called Sonic: Bad Guys.

“Sonic the Hedgehog comics have been a constant source of joy and inspiration for me for well over ten years, and the truth is, this opportunity is a dream I didn’t believe could come true,” Stanley says. “The world of Sonic has a truly amazing creative legacy, and I’ve always pushed myself to make my contributions as meaningful and worthwhile as they can be — and that’s more important than ever now. I hope I can deepen the world of IDW’s Sonic The Hedgehog comics, exploring new places and characters while continuing to deliver exciting adventures about Sonic and his friends!”

In the new main title arc — “Chao Races and Badnik Bases” — “Tails and Sonic try to solve how to fix their damaged ally, Omega,” according to IDW’s description. “Elsewhere, Rouge and Shadow team up with Cream to win replacement parts for Omega through… Chao races!”

IDW did not provide exact release dates for either comic at this time.
