Another Cover Revealed for IDW Sonic #1

Solicits are now almost within touching distance, but in the meantime there’s been another cover reveal!

This is another alternate cover for issue 1, but this time it’s by an artist completely new to the franchise. This lovely cover of Sonic freeing animals with Tails acting as the literal wingman was done by Nathalie Fourdraine.

Along with the cover, some minor details about the upcoming four issues in April were noted, some of which have not been divulged before now. Aside from what we know, the following was revealed.

  • Issue one will be illustrated by Sonic veteran Tracy Yardley, who was revealed with the last cover released.
  • The next three issues will each have a different artist, and once the book goes monthly there will be rotating art teams.
  • Finally, and perhaps most interestingly, each of the first four issues focuses on Sonic with one of his classic allies, issue one being focused on Tails.

There’s bound to be a big surge of news within the next couple of days, so make sure you keep an eye on the Sonic Stadium for that!

  1. I’m so excited for this! My main man, Tails will be the focus of the first issue. Awesome! Definitely need to pick up the first issue or something. ?

  2. See this cover I can get behind. Was really hoping they’d start with a fresh new art team as I never saw the appeal ppl have with Yardleys work. Oh well, push past issue one I guess (if it ever releases here)

  3. Let’s see:
    Issue 1: Sonic & Tails
    Issue 2: Sonic & Knuckles
    Issue 3: Sonic & Amy
    Issue 4: Sonic & Newcomer of the IDW Sonic Series.

  4. This is beautiful. I never collected the Archie comics but did like the few I did end up getting somehow. I might start with the new series
