IDW Sonic’s journey continues into a brand new year, courtesy of the unveiling of a first look at Sonic the Hedgehog issue #41. The issue is going to be releasing in May for $3.99, so you’ll have to wait a few months.
Although Ian Flynn is not the head writer for the comics anymore, as that position now belongs to Evan Stanley, he’s back to do some more writing for the team in a new IDW Sonic story arc called “Zeti Hunt”. Here’s the plot text summary and the issue’s cover art:

The Chaotix will have to act quickly to outsmart the Deadly Six!
