IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog #1 Sells Out
Last year, IDW picked up the torch after Archie Comics’ decades of work on the Sonic the Hedgehog brand, announcing a new series in February. Released just a week ago on April 4, issue #1 has sold out. Sonic is set to release its first four issues this month, with #2 already available and two more to go.
The new series is unconnected to the Archie Comics storylines and begins in a world where Sonic has just defeated the evil Dr. Eggman, now missing. In the press release announcing the first-run sellout, Sega of America’s Michael Cisneros describes the release as the result of nine months of work since the July 2017 deal.
For anyone who missed out, a second run of #1 is set for release on May 2. We’ll have to wait and see if subsequent issues “go fast” to match.
See the full press release below, and discuss the series on the Allspark Forums or our Discord server.
