Shout-out to Destructoid commenter Austyn Wiles for totally calling the IDW team-up. The company’s name is attached to everything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Transformers to Jem.
“We’ve been speaking with beloved Sonic fan-favorite creators and new creators alike,” said IDW chief creative officer Chris Ryall, who added that specific plans will be shared “in the near future.”
