Hit the race track with IDW’s “Team Sonic Racing” this October
Go carts are really cool. Sonic the Hedgehog is really cool. Put them together and what do you get? Team Sonic Racing, which sounds pretty cool.
The one-shot comic is unique in that it ties into both comic and video game continuity, following on the recent Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and leading directly into the upcoming Team Sonic Racing video game. That kind of inter-medium crossover is, you guessed it, pretty cool.
Team Sonic Racing (TM) Comic Book Drifts
Into Your Local Comic Shop in October
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 19, 2018) – IDW Publishing and SEGA (R) of America are proud to announce the Team Sonic Racing comic book, a one-shot special arriving October 2018. Following hot on the heels of IDW’s fan-favorite Sonic The Hedgehog (TM) series, the events of the Team Sonic Racing comic will lead directly into the highly-anticipated video game that arrives this winter!
Sonic and his teammates Knuckles and Tails journey to a new planet and enter a race unlike any other! With a little help from friends like Amy Rose, Big the Cat, and a few other familiar faces, Sonic must race to prevent an old foe from obtaining a powerful new technology in this story by writer Caleb Goellner (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and longtime Sonic The Hedgehog artist Adam Bryce Thomas.
“I'm so stoked to write Sonic! It's been a dream of mine ever since my dad surprised me with my first Sonic comic in ’92, so I can’t wait for fans to take this issue for a Spin Dash,” says Caleb Goellner. “It’s been an honor to be on a team working to deliver an issue that’s as fun to read as Team Sonic Racing is to play.”
Adam Bryce Thomas says, “I’m thrilled to be part of IDW’s newest comic project. Illustrating action packed scenes is my go-to for Sonic, so what could be better than our rival teams jockeying for position? SEGA is known for its phenomenal racing titles and I'll be doing my best to bring comic fans the breakneck speed and excitement they expect.”
“There’s a lot to be thrilled about with Team Sonic Racing,” says associate editor David Mariotte. “The game exemplifies a lot of what's best about Sonic—naturally, there’s action, speed, and style, but there’s also teamwork and Big the Cat. Adam and Caleb do a great job of translating all of that into one of the best-looking, most fun comics we’ll see all year.”
Team Sonic Racing will hit comic shops and digital retailers this October.
