Ian Flynn Confirms That IDW Sonic Comics Will Not Have Archie Sonic Characters He Created

by December 28, 2017 88 comments

We have finally gotten our first solid insight on the cast of characters that will be in the era of IDW Sonic, and it’s not good news.

At 42:50 or so in the latest BumbleKast episode, which we’ve included below, the Q&A portion of the video begins. Only two questions were asked, the first being whether the Sonic characters that Ian Flynn created in the Archie Sonic comics would carry over to IDW’s Sonic comics. This includes characters such as Coral, Razor, Spike/Sonar/Trevor, Eclipse, Relic, Thunderbolt and Conquering Storm. Ian’s response? “I’m going to say no. This is a new Sonic book. It’s a new direction, new publisher, new, new, new, new, new, new, new”.

While this doesn’t necessarily confirm the end of the Freedom Fighters, this news doesn’t reassure anyone either. In fact, this could easily leave a bad taste in the mouths of many Freedom Fighters fans. It’s a sign, if what Ian said is any indicator, that the IDW Sonic era will be a lot more of a clean slate than initially thought.

Sadly, it doesn’t seem like the Sonic comics are ending the year on a good note.

    A plan B for Ian Flynn: How about if Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters don’t make it to the IDW Sonic comic book have Sally Acorn and her Freedom Fighter partners be part of a new FREEDOM FIGHTERS newspaper comic strip distributed by Tribune Content Agency or Andrews McMeel or King Features or Creators.com – It could be seperate from the Sonic world or something like that.

      Really? Does this mean IDW, Ian, and Sega finally approved Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters to be in IDW Sonic and back to their pre SUPER GENESIS WAVE looks?

    ALSO: I learned it’s not Ian Flynn who decides on the fate of using the Freedom Fighters (including Sally Acorn) in IDW Sonic after the comic’s 2018 launch – It’s up to IDW and/or Sega.

    DTH, it took you how long before realized Flynn had no say in the FFs inclusion, when everyone stated this to you repeatedly. It baffles my mind.
