If you knew who's Ian, you would be aware that he's no hesitant at starting yet another extensively long arc that endure for more than one year. And then, another, and then another, another, and so on. It's a never-ending nightmare of repetitive boring arcs that bring nothing to the table except nice characterization sometimes, and this problem has been pestering the Sonic comics ever since 160#.
As if Archie Sonic being dead isn't enough to turn you off (it did to me), IDW Sonic shows no promise to get any better, and it might never do so. IDW Sonic started very clumsily and mediocrity, and has now turned into a bad, tedious comic book.>>113285619
While there's no need, you're not missing anything with IDW Sonic. Opt for Archie or/and Fleetway instead (I can lend you a visual guide of Archie if you wish).
