IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

So what is the current comic about? I'm looking to jump in but I have no idea what is happening.

 

 

The story so far: Sonic team-ups with [insert name of one of his friends] to smash Badniks. Next issue, move to a new location, meet another friend (sometimes few), a new wave of Badniks. Repeat until boss fight (issue 7 and probably 11-12).

Plots are very simple, there is bigger narrative but somewhat thin. You're here for pretty art, dialogue, and interactions. So far only the most important characters appeared (Knuckles, Silver, Chaotix, etc). If you expect Jet, Zavok or Infinite, don't hold your breath.

New original characters exist (Tangle, Whispers, Rough & Tumble), but they don't play a bigger role than an extra ally to smash Badniks or extra minor enemy to replace Badniks. Knowing Flynn, he 'seeds' them for later stories. 

We only 8 issues in, so I suggest you start from the start. But if you're adamant to jump in the middle then here are REAL spoilers.

Spoiler

Eggman has amnesia and works in a small village as a nice handyman.

Metal Sonic leads his army in his absence, loyally looking for his master. Also, he took over Angel Island and has Master Emerald.

WOW!!!

The art is incredible!! Everything looks fantastic!

I know right! It's so good because many of the artists are Sonic fans themselves and drew Sonic all their life before drawing professionally.

Here is Silver drawn by Evan Stanley:

Like MetalSkullbane said it's best to start now because we are only 8 issues in.

And issue 9 is gonna introduce so many more characters! (Even Gemerl and Cream)

For the new characters we have two new heroes and two new villains:

latest?cb=20180124151739

Tangle the lemur is lemur citizen, she's active and social kinda like Sonic. She can use her tail to attack ennemies

latest?cb=20180721082511

Whisper the wolf is a mysterious hero who helped during the war against Eggman. She is friends with the wisps. Her wispon is special too because it can hold many wisps meaning many powers

latest?cb=20180217024329latest?cb=20180216181538

Now here are the 2 villains Rough and Tumble, they are skunk brothers who took over a village and mistreat its inhabitants.

 

This is cover of issue 9 which comes out in a week. Cream is the rabbit near Amy, and Gemerl is the black robot next to her.

They all look great.

 

Who is this cream character? He/she sounds intriguing.

Being protagonist is kinda a marty stu role, in some exceptions.

Which is basically why this concept is often pretty meaningless outside of the fanfiction realm.

Thank you both. So 3 new heroes are all female? I was kind of hoping for a new male hero.

I think they added more female heroes because there are already many male heroes (Sonic-Knuckles-Tails-Shadow-Silver-Chaotix-Omega...) and not many female heroes (Amy-Cream--Blaze-Rouge)

Agreed.

 

Hopefully some new male heroes soon. How often do they add new heroes?

When they see fit. They don't have really a schedule, but it's pretty sure that it won't happen before the end of Battle for Angel Island (that begin this month).

True, they introduced new characters in the first 8 issue. But for the Battle for Angel Island arc (issue 9 till issue 12) I don't think they'll introduce new ones.

4 months? Oh ok thanks.

 

Do we have any idea who they might be?

D'oh! 

You must be new to this franchise.

Nah, just those two thus far.

Not very at all. 

And honestly, Tangle seems to just be there for the sake of having a character with a name(you'll get that when you actually get up) and for IDW to show off for publicity's sake to hype up the comic's four issue debut.

When they make a new character, they show art of this character before the issue he appears in comes out (like a month before the issue releases).

@Alexios31Or in Tangle's case, 3 months.

IDW said they won't be introducing any new characters in year 2 (issues 13-24), so I wouldn't expect anyone until 2020 at least. Even then, its more likely to be game characters who haven't been introduced to the comics yet (ie, Big). They've got plenty to work with already- Whisper and Tangle need panel time, as do Rough and Tumble,  even most of the games cast has gotten one issue each thus far, the current setting/continuity needs to be developed, Silver and Blaze's worlds, Eggman's return to form, etc. I think there's plenty to get through before expanding the cast even more.

Now that its been mentioned, I think a lot of recurring female heroes were lost with the Archie continuity- Sally and Bunnie in particular, Nicole, Honey, etc. just off the top of my head. That kinda just leaves the cast with Amy, Rouge (who's basically tied to Shadow), Blaze (who's from another world and rarely gets to appear), and Cream (who's notoriously difficult to write in an action setting), so it makes sense that Tangle and Whisper were introduced to be recurring characters.

Great insight, thanks.

Hopefully 2020 some new male heroes will arrive.
