The Sonic 30th Anniversary comic book is coming to celebrate three decades of Sonic the Hedgehog. IDW Publishing and SEGA of America, Inc. today announced a special comic book collaboration celebrating 30 years of the video game sensation-turned-pop culture icon, Sonic the Hedgehog.
30th Anniversary Sonic Comic Book: Three Decades of the Blue Blur
Gale Galligan, known for her illustration work on The Babysitters Club, along with Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy, podcasters recognizable from The Adventure Zone and the wildly popular My Brother, My Brother, and Me. This group of newcomers will be contributing their first-ever Sonic adventures alongside fan-favorite and longtime scribe Ian Flynn and artists Mauro Fonseca, Reggie Graham, Aaron Hammerstrom, and Thomas Rothlisberger.
The press release reads:
We’re celebrating a major milestone for the world’s coolest hedgehog, so we needed creators who could capture the vibrant comedy and action of Sonic in style. The 30th Anniversary Special features possibly the greatest creative lineup ever assembled on a single issue of Sonic!”
No doubt that this comic will really be something, considering that true fans will be working on it. The release continues:
Sonic has been central to my creative career for fifteen years. I’ve had the pleasure of writing the little blue hedgehog in a variety of media, and he in turn has introduced me to an army of artists and editors who have helped me grow as a professional (and made me look good). I’ve had a long run with Sonic, and I hope that continues for years to come!”
The Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Special will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Sonic Team, Cover B by Christina-Antoinette Neofotistou, and two retailer incentive editions featuring art by Patrick Spaziante and Tyson Hesse, respectively.
