It’s Sonic vs. Doppelgangers in Sonic the Hedgehog: Imposter Syndrome
As the wildly popular Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series approaches its milestone fiftieth issue, IDW Publishing has announced the upcoming November debut of Sonic The Hedgehog: Imposter Syndrome, a four-issue tie-in miniseries pitting the Blue Blur against a duo of doppelgangers!
Ian Flynn, the prolific and fan-favorite writer who has chronicled Sonic adventures since 2006, joins artist Thomas Rothlisberger for this essential component of Sonic’s ongoing saga.
In Imposter Syndrome, a surge of lookalikes spells trouble for Sonic, Tails, and even the dreaded Dr. Eggman! Dr. Starline, the evil scientist eager to supplant Dr. Eggman as would-be world conqueror, is pulling every tool from his kit as he creates his fastest and smartest inventions.
Imposter Syndrome will be released in alternating months with the ongoing series (Sonic #46 in October, the new miniseries #1 in November, Sonic #47 in December, and so on) as they both build towards Sonic the Hedgehog #50. While they can be read separately, both series are a half of one larger story, and reading both will enhance the overall experience. Eagle-eyed readers will be able to spot the subtle moments where the two stories overlap, ultimately converging towards the climactic storyline finale.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Imposter Syndrome #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Mauro Fonseca, Cover B by series artist Thomas Rothlisberger, and a Retailer Incentive edition featuring art by ongoing series writer/artist Evan Stanley.
