Preview for Bad Guys #1 Released

It’s time for the more minor villains to take the stage in this new miniseries!

IDW have released a preview for Bad Guys #1! Dr Starline is eager to get back to evil schemes after the Metal Virus saga made a mess of everything, but it’s not going to be easy. The base he chose to devise a plan turns out not to be abandoned at all, and there’s no way he could take on Eggman’s security alone! If he wants to get anywhere, he’s going to need a team, and he’s willing to bring in some villains we all know and…well, know how treacherous they can be. What could go wrong? Find out in the first part of the miniseries!

Unlikely Team Ups Galore With Solicitations for IDW Sonic the Hedgehog #33 and Bad Guys #1

Back in the stride of comic news following recent circumstances, IDW have released solicitations for Sonic the Hedgehog #33 and the first issue of the new miniseries, Bad Guys #1. And there’s all sorts of strange shenanigans going on even with the Metal Virus saga over!

In Sonic the Hedgehog #33, Omega’s sustained heavy damage during the efforts to stop the Metal Virus, and his allies turn to Sonic and Tails to help out. To rebuild his body, they’re going to need to do some dealings with a Chao racing champion. As is to be expected, things certainly aren’t going to be that straight forward for our heroes! This is “Chao Races and Badnik Bases!”.

It’s also neat to note that this is the first main comic issue written by Evan Stanley, who as we reported on a while back has taken over as lead writer. With a barmy premise like this, it should be fun to see what new flavour she brings to the table.

Hold onto your chili dogs, Sonic fans! Long-time artist Evan Stanley takes over as writer with an action-packed, friendship-fueled new arc: “Chao Races and Badnik Bases!” The perfect jumping-on point for new readers! The Metal Virus is gone, but things aren’t quite back to normal. Omega is damaged and his allies turn to Tails and Sonic for help. The only way to rebuild him is to trade parts with a mysterious chanpion Chao racer… but things aren’t what they seem.

Meanwhile, in Bad Guys #1, Dr Starline wants to plot his own evil schemes, and decides that one of Eggman’s old bases would be an ideal spot to do it. But with Badniks guarding any way into it, he realises he can’t get in alone, so recruits some familiar allies to help. If you think this will be a friendly alliance, you are solely mistaken!

Sonic the Hedgehog #33 and Bad Guys #1 look set to be released around the October-November period. As always, we’ll have more information closer to the time of release. With so many new ways the story could go now, you won’t want to miss it!
