IDW’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” races off the shelves and sells out at the distributor level
Always love this news: several of IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog comics have sold out at the distributor level. Issues 14 and 15 of the main series have sold out, along with a recent annual, and that’s nothing but great.
That means people are buying comics, of course, but it also means that they’re reading ongoing series and related issues. That’s great news for the industry, no matter how you look at it. Check out the details below.

IDW Publishing Thanks the Wildly Dedicated Fans of the
Iconic SEGA® Character for Continuing Support
SAN DIEGO, CA (May 8, 2019) –IDW Publishing is humbled to announce that three of its most recent Sonic The Hedgehog comic books – issues #14 and #15 from the ongoing monthly series, as well as Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019– have completely sold out at the distributor level.
The heat on IDW’s Sonic The Hedgehoghas been building as the comic book marches confidently into its second “season” with creators Ian Flynn, Tracy Yardley,and Jack Lawrence’s Metal Virus story arc, so fans are encouraged to rush to their local comic shops to pick up these very desirable – and hot-selling – stories!
The very special Sonic The Hedgehog Annual– featuring a cover by revolutionary Sonic Team artist Yuji Uekawa and a host of creators (including Ian Flynn, James Kochalka, Cavan Scott, Evan Stanley, Gigi Dutreix, and more) – is sure to become a jewel in any fan’s collection.
"There's a certain kind of magic to a book like theSonicAnnual," says editor David Mariotte. "It's rare that you're so fortunate to be able to put together so many great creators in one book and have their stories naturally go together. I'm just glad to see everyone else picked up on that creative magic too."
Hardcore fans can enjoy the continuing Sonic adventures monthly in the ongoing series, as well as in collected volumes (Vol. 1: Fallout and Vol. 2: The Fate of Dr. Eggman, as well as the upcoming Vol. 3: Battle for Angel Island and Vol. 4: Infection). Also, IDW’s highly-anticipated Tangle & Whisper spin-off series promises more action and adventure for theSonic fanbase over the course of Summer 2019, as the unlikely duo find themselves in hot pursuit of Sonic himself!
Congratulations to IDW and the Sonic teams for this great news.
