Merry Christmas, Sonic comic fans. You have your first news on the Sonic comics in a couple of months. And it is, perhaps, our first insight in where the story is going.

You can now pre-order volume 1 of IDW Sonic for $16. The issue is called “Fallout!” and comes with the following info:

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!

    So is this the first issue or a compilation of the first 4 issues?

      The first 4 issues due to be published by IDW in April 2018.

      Looks like a compilation of the first 4. The page count is what you’d expect from a 4-count compilation and the release date is 5 months after the time those 4 comics are supposed to come out. (Though I’ll admit I got worried when I saw the $16 price tag, since it looked like a single comic at first.)

      It may be the latter.

    We won’t get more of the socilists of the first 4 Sonic issues for April 2018 from IDW until next month or two. Though the description and title could be subject to change or something like that.

    So far the characters confirmed: Sonic, Tails, Eggman, Amy, and Knuckles – Maybe Rogue too?

    I guess more characters may be introduced in IDW Sonic as the 2018 months go by. (Heck, maybe we mightget a second IDW Sonic title spotlighting The Sonic Freedom Fighters – including Sally Acorn!)

      You’ll have to wait until IDW gives a green light to a Sonic/TMNT crossover miniseries.

    So it picks up immediately after Forces it sounds like. Neat. I wonder if Infinite will return. I can’t wait to see how Flynn and his new crew populate this world.

      It could be the first 4 weekly April 2018 issues to be reprinted in the IDW Sonic trade paperback to be based on Sonic Forces.

      Maybe after that after IDW goes monthly on Sonic, Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters might finally make it to IDW Sonic if not the first 4 IDW issues…

      I hope it’s not Forces, because I hate the idea of classic and modern Sonic being separate entities.

      I want to Sonic to be ONE character able to stand on his own, without the need for his younger cute self to attract nostalgic costumers !!

        Who knows what the FALLOUT arc will be like if it isn’t Sonic Forces related…

        Yeah, I’m definitely with you on that part at least Marco. I hope they stop treating them as separate characters in the main canon and I hope they don’t start in the IDW canon (any more than would be necessitated by adaptations at any rate).
