A brand new character is coming soon to the world of IDW Sonic, just in time for a new story arc. Ahead of New York Comic Con, IDW has revealed Belle, a robot that is made out of wood.
There’s not much more than that that has been revealed about Belle for the time being. Evan Stanley, the new writer for the main IDW Sonic comics, has only confirmed that “I was responsible for the concept and design”, and that Belle will be “introduced in the #33-#36 story arc”.
However, that doesn’t mean it will stay that way, and the wait won’t be for very long. New York Comic Con is in just a few days, and there is an IDW Sonic happening on the 9th. So, we might learn a little more about Belle then.
Even we don’t, Stanley said that “you can learn about her when the books come out”. Issue #33, which will be Evan Stanley’s first as head writer for the comic and the first issue of the story arc that Belle will be introduced in, releases later this month.
It’s unknown if Belle will be a permanent part of the IDW Sonic universe after the arc concludes, but if the rest of IDW Sonic’s original characters have been sticking around, then it’s likely that Belle will, too.
