IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

So I wrote down what I find a potentially cool story for Shadow that could be (in my mind, it's literally impossible it will be official, so I gave it my thoughts), in the personal storyline thread. Check it out!

Is it bad with Sonic's crap scheduling I was expecting this to happen with or without the pandemic? I was expecting indefinite hiatus even before current events.

...Why? Again this is not a Sonic specific problem. Most if not all of IDW'S books had delay problems. Talk with Transformers fans about it I guarantee you they'll tell you this has been a problem for a long time.

Some of you guys need to chill out and find a hobby.

This isn't anything like Archie where they handled the hiatus in the worst possible way imaginable by stringing readers along during their radio silence and not cancelling subscriptions. You're gonna get your damn comics eventually

I say it more in the sense of it makes getting invested hard when the schedule is all over the place and I almost always forget when an issue does come out or what happened previously because of the haphazard releases. Hurts staying power honestly.

This! I say that eventually coming out is better than say having a license for a product and doing nothing but Free Comic Book Day issues with it. *Glares at Udon*

Seriously Sonic fans have no idea how good they actually have it when it comes to comic tie-in's.

Will be a sign of relief when we finally get the ending of this storyline after over a year

Seriously, I'm waiting for the arc to finally end, it's been so long, I need something new, but once it is done I know I'm gonna miss it, the pathos it gave us... I will not forget. We may even get more Shadow and Omega as well as Big before it ends, to fix that mess and make it a good arc for every character.

I still don't get how it's "Been going too long" when the actual Zombot stuff doesn't really start until #16 and once this finally ends the actual Metal virus Saga will only be 2 issues longer than the first "season". Yeah technically the first 3 issues are a part of it but I don't really count the Zombot arc as really starting until Sonic gets infected.

No, the beginning of the arc is still #13, and it will technically end with #32 with the literally called "epilogue". Season 3 is later this year. I know it's not really levels of Mecha Sally and Shattered World Crisis boring lenght, and as you said it builds gradually, up to #24 and then twists it with the arrival of the D6. It was built correctly. I can't complain. But I still want new arcs sooner than later. Although it's cool that we will get more Shadow and Omega before it ends, completing it, and Big in the annual, because these characters kinda got robbed of screentime here.

Its still one issue a month, with a couple of delays factoring in as well. And there's no sister book to at least mince the status quo up a bit or even a cartoon in a different universe to alternatively watch each week.

That's unfortunately been a problem with this franchise for years. People get starved of decent content or bored of the same storyline on a monthly basis and so look to another to scratch an itch.

 

And that's not really happening with IDW in particular. I sometimes feel bad thinking about it.

I can totes understand how it's too long. A bunch of this arc could be condensed down into shorter material. There's a lot of unneeded stuff. Which isnt the worst thing, but it's not interesting really. So it results in whole sections of books, or whole books that didnt need to exist.

That in itself kills tension for me, which makes shit feel even longer.

Can I just check my understanding is correct - That the delays are only from May until further notice, so the next issue currently scheduled for 22 April is still being released for now. Is that right, or are we already on the hiatus?

Amazon doesn’t seem to think so, since they’re now listing both #28 and the annual for a June release.

EDIT: Previewsworld is claiming only the annual has been pushed back (to 10th of June).
