  • New IDW Sonic '900th Adventure' Covers From Evan Stanley and Richard Elson Revealed

    We really want all of these covers printed and on our wall.

    IDW Sonic's 900th Adventure is getting a lot more action-packed with the reveal of two new cover variants for the upcoming one-shot comic. Evan Stanley brings us a whale-biting encounter with the book's Cover C, while the Retail Incentive artwork offers a Fleetway throwback courtesy of legendary UK artist Richard Elson.


    As we've come to expect from Stanley, her Cover C artwork is a phenomenal piece, featuring a fantastic art style that really captures the dynamism of both Sonic and Amy as they try to escape a whale (what is it with whales?). The IDW writer also shared a clean version of this artwork as well as some thumbnail sketches on her social media channel, as a treat.

    As for the Retail Incentive cover? Well, UK-based Sonic fans who grew up in the 1990s are in for a real treat with this one, as this cover is by none other than Sonic the Comic artist Richard Elson. And those with the 'STC Style' burned into their memories will truly appreciate Elson's familiar take on Sonic and Dr. Eggman here.


    Stanley and Elson's work join a number of well-known Sonic comic artists who are collaborating and contributing to this one-shot, including Sonic Team's Yuji Uekawa, Tracy Yardley and Adam Bryce Thomas. Sonic the Hedgehog's 900th Adventure is slated for an August 30 release and will be on sale for $7.99 USD.

    Really cool to see.  Elson's take on modern Sonic is still a little... something off that doesn't sing like golden years STC Sonic, the eyes still have that slight spacey look to them but it's fine for the expressions chosen here so I might be seeing something that's not there.  Holy crap it's so cool to see modern Eggman channeling that big STC Robotnik energy though.

    I'm loving that Cover C of the whale reference from Sonic Adventure I'm getting vibes from It too. In quite looking forward to the 900th Adventure coming soon.
