IDW Publishing and SEGA of America, Inc. have announced that Sonic The Hedgehog comic book fans will get a double dose of fun this summer, as fan-favorite Sonic illustrator Evan Stanley will be taking over as both artist AND writer beginning with Sonic The Hedgehog #33, while a dastardly delicious spin-off miniseries, Sonic: Bad Guys, will debut from writer Ian Flynn and artist Jack Lawrence.
Artist Evan Stanley takes on double-duty as series writer for the ongoing Sonic The Hedgehog series with an action-packed, friendship-fueled new arc! The Metal Virus is gone, but things aren’t quite back to normal. Tails and Sonic try to solve how to fix their damaged ally, Omega. Elsewhere, Rouge and Shadow team up with Cream to win replacement parts for Omega through… Chao races! Debuting in issue #33, the “Chao Races and Badnik Bases!” storyline serves as the perfect jumping-on point for new readers!
Meanwhile, the four-issue Sonic: Bad Guys miniseries — scribed by series mainstay Ian Flynn and artist Jack Lawrence — asks the question: Whatever happened to Dr. Starline, former evil assistant and life-long fanboy to Dr. Eggman? The answer: The shadowy scientist is back to his evil antics… and what better place to concoct new nefarious plans than one of Eggman’s abandoned bases? With badniks guarding the entrance, Dr. Starline must recruit some familiar and not-so-friendly faces for help!
Sonic The Hedgehog #33 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Evan Stanley, Cover B by Gigi Dutreix, and a Retailer Incentive edition by Nathalie Fourdraine. Sonic: Bads Guys #1 will be available with Cover A by Aaron Hammerstrom, Cover B by Diana Skelly, and two Retailer Incentive editions by Jack Lawrence and Bracardi Curry, respectively.
