Back in 2017, when it was announced that Archie was losing the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book license from Sega, and IDW Publishing was picking it up, I thought that maybe I should try and do some character sketches in case there would ever be the possibility of me auditioning to do art duties on the title — Brandon and I were finishing up New Hawk & Croc at the time, and I figured I may as well look into paying comics work, right?
Anyways, IDW quickly announced that the same folks who had been doing the Archie-era Sonic comics would be working on the new comics, so those potential dreams were quickly — heh — dashed.
Uh, those IDW comics ended up being pretty great, by the way. I very much recommend picking up the Sonic the Hedgehog IDW Collection and checking them out; That includes the first 12 issues of the comic all collected in one fancy hardcover. And! Volume 2 is scheduled to come out in March.
