There will be one corner of the world getting new Sonic comics this week–or, at least, comics that are new to them.
Stores in Japan still operating–as coronavirus-related restrictions remain in effect to varying degrees across the country–will on Friday begin selling the first compilation of IDW’s Sonic comics series. It will be the first time a comic series from the West has been officially localized.
For Japan, it will be the first serialized Sonic comic published since Sonic Channel released online the 26-part Sonic Comic in 2016, as part of Sonic’s 25th anniversary.
These releases will be in volumes, not individual issues, and will run consumers there a bit under $24 in USD.
Volumes 2 and 3 of a localized series are expected to drop “in the future.”
