Everyone's favorite anthropomorphic hedgehog is poised to make another big splash in the world of comics this fall, courtesy of writer Caleb Goellner, artist Adam Bryce Thomas in the form of Team Sonic Team Racing, a one-shot from IDW Publishing.
“I'm so stoked to write Sonic!" Goellner said in a statement. "It's been a dream of mine ever since my dad surprised me with my first Sonic comic in ’92, so I can’t wait for fans to take this issue for a Spin Dash. It’s been an honor to be on a team working to deliver an issue that’s as fun to read as Team Sonic Racing is to play.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of IDW’s newest comic project," Thomas added. "Illustrating action packed scenes is my go-to for Sonic, so what could be better than our rival teams jockeying for position? SEGA is known for its phenomenal racing titles and I'll be doing my best to bring comic fans the breakneck speed and excitement they expect.”
“There’s a lot to be thrilled about with Team Sonic Racing,” associate editor David Mariotte said. “The game exemplifies a lot of what's best about Sonic—naturally, there’s action, speed, and style, but there’s also teamwork and Big the Cat. Adam and Caleb do a great job of translating all of that into one of the best-looking, most fun comics we’ll see all year.”
Here is IDW's synopsis for Team Sonic Racing:
Sonic and his teammates Knuckles and Tails journey to a new planet and enter a race unlike any other! With a little help from friends like Amy Rose, Big the Cat, and a few other familiar faces, Sonic must race to prevent an old foe from obtaining a powerful new technology in this story by writer Caleb Goellner (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and longtime Sonic The Hedgehog artist Adam Bryce Thomas.
Team Sonic Racing arrives this October from IDW Publishing.
