IDW and Sonic The Hedgehog Celebrate Classic Friends (and Foes) in Upcoming Tails’ 30th Anniversary Special and Scrapnik Island
Following the monumental box office success of Paramount Pictures’ Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and leading up to SEGA’s highly anticipated action-adventure Sonic game, Sonic Frontiers, IDW Publishing has revealed two upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog comic book projects for 2022 featuring the Blue Blur and his band of buds!
Just in time for Halloween, the spooky four-issue miniseries Scrapnik Island, written by Daniel Barnes and illustrated by Jack Lawrence with colors by Nathalie Fourdraine, will release in October 2022. Alongside formidable new foes, Sonic and Tails run afoul of old adversaries—including long-lost fan favorites like Mecha Knuckles—as they battle to survive isolation on an island of robots programmed to destroy them.
As a follow-up to IDW’s popular Sonic 30th Anniversary Special, Sonic The Hedgehog: Tails’ 30th Anniversary Special will release in November 2022, featuring a new 30-page (for 30 years!) story by series regular Ian Flynn, with art by Aaron Hammerstrom and colors by Reggie Graham inspired by the classic games.
Sonic The Hedgehog: Scrapnik Island #1 will be available in stores in October 2022 with three cover variants, including Cover A by series colorist Nathalie Fourdraine, Cover B by Min Ho Kim, and a retailer incentive edition by Diana Skelley.
