Ian Flynn Returning to the Main IDW Sonic Comic for Four Issue Arc

Ian Flynn may no longer be the lead writer of IDW’s Sonic comic, but that doesn’t mean he’s going anywhere! Flynn is set to return for a four issue arc, “Zeti Hunt,” which will see the Chaotix racing to track down the Zeti before their leader, Zavok, can find them. This reveal comes mere months after the completion of Flynn’s “Sonic Bad Guys” mini series.

When asked why he used the Zeti so frequently, Flynn had this to say: “I like mining untapped potential. Plus they’re a lingering plot point from Metal Virus. Need to clean up after myself.”

His return isn’t surprising. Flynn revealed last year that while Evan Stanley was now the lead writer, he still had some stories lined up in the main book. 

“Zeti Hunt” is set to begin with Issue #41, after Stanley’s upcoming arc “Test Run,” set to start next week

  1. A lot of people say that Silver the Hedgehog was “Rescued from the Scrappy Heap” thanks to his inclusion in the comics. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Ian’s use of the Deadly Six in the current story ends up having the same result overtime.

    1. The little screentime they got in the Virus Saga was miles better than Lost World, and Bad Guys managed to give Zavok a surprising amount of character depth. While I’m a tad annoyed that we’re dealing with the Zeti again so soon after the Virus Saga, I’m at least happy to know there’s a high chance they’ll get more of a personality beyond pure cruelty.

      1. Same here! Tbh I hate the zeti in the games (specially Zavok in TSR) but I love how well written Zavok is in the comics, also it’s nice to have Flynn back, I love both his and Stanley’s writing.
