After 25 years at Archie Comics, Sonic The Hedgehog has found a new home at IDW Publishing. No creative teams have been announced, but details are to come at a later date. Last September, The Outhouse inferred that then-new IDW Editor-in-Chief David Hedgecock would be bringing his second cousin Sonic The Hedgehog to the company from Archie, making it a family affair. 

“We’ve been speaking with beloved Sonic fan-favorite creators and new creators alike, and are excited to be able to spread specifics about our plans for the comic in the near future,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer.

“We are ecstatic about this partnership with IDW,” said Ivo Gerscovich, Chief Brand Officer for Sonic the Hedgehog. “We know they’ll serve as a good home for the new adventures of Sonic, his friends, and foes.”

Sonic The Hedgehog is set to release in 2018.
