Sonic the Hedgehog #2—Cover A: Tyson Hesse
Ian Flynn (w) • Adam Bryce Thomas (a) • Tyson Hesse ©
Sonic's new adventure continues, and when he comes across another town in need of saving, his old pal Amy arrives just in time to join the fight! The banter is fun, and the stakes are high, but things get really serious when Amy presents Sonic with a big request: rejoin the Resistance!

Man I am hyped for these comics! I know that we're able to preorder volume 1 on Amazon right now, but I think I'm going to buy a subscription to the comics instead.
Any word on when we can do so? I'm assuming once it gets closer to April IDW will add them to their website. Also Amy looks freaking awesome!

Pretty sure IDW doesn't offer a subscription service. Set up a standing order with your nearest comic shop.

That stock logo is so fugly but man they are nailing it in the art department so far. Great stuff.

Also it's kinda interesting to see this stuff in contrast to what we had from Archie. Like Archie never tried that pastel painted style before, in fact they might not have even allowed it it might have been too off brand. I look froward to seeing what kinds of liberties IDW is allowed to take with the series.

Hmmm, I mean it could be Sally. If it is it looks like she got another redesign though.

Do I see other echidnas in that cover or do my eyes deceive me?

Ambivalent about it being a follow-up to Forces and slightly annoyed that the Resistance is still a thing (not a fan of all the Sega characters being shoved into a rebel group). Also... man, that is starting to look like Sally, huh? Maybe she's been redesigned to look more Ricky-esque, sort of like StC Sally. Unless it's just a completely new character. Dunno.

That's definitely not an echidna in the background of that cover, though. Just a generic Mobian with a bob cut.

You're looking at the one crouched behind Sonic right? Well, they have long hair and no visible ears, but they appear to also have a tail wrapped around them that's longer than an echidna's, and their nose doesn't match up with the snout most echindas have.

So I don't know what animal that is, but I'd guess Knuckles is still the last of his kind.

I have a feeling that the new character might be based around Buddy, the default avatar character that Sega used to promote Forces. Since the story is based around Forces, it wouldn't surprise me.

Great so the first arc of this new series and were jumping into a....Forces adaption?! gross.

We already had our Forces tie-in comics why muddle the new comic with it?

Damn it Forces go away already or get better with mods.

Apparently a brand new character, so very likely not Sally.

Forces does leave room for a more satisfying epilogue, if that's what they're going for. Good way to explore the world through cleanup duty.

For example, where the fuck are the humans?

It's look like an avatar from Sonic Forces, and maybe that thing in their 'hand' is a Wispon...

We can safely say it's a girl, since Sonic character design conventions dictate only female characters have eyelashes. My first thought was that she's holding a Burst Wispon, but the silhouette doesn't quite match. Maybe a new type of Wispon?
