    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 2, 2018

    Another strong entry in this new run of Sonic the Hedgehog, while this months guest stars don't really inspire and the long-term story is inching along slowly every issue continues to provide high-quality all-ages entertainment. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Clayton Hinojosa May 30, 2018

    Flynn's story has been entertaining, and his cliffhanger endings make the book childishly entertaining, as though it is a television episode. Read Full Review

    Time will tell if IDW has what it takes to carry Sonic's legacy from Archie. So far, there's good reason to hope, but there's also some niggling doubts that I hope will be smoothed out soon. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Cameron McFarland May 31, 2018

    Ultimately, this book takes a big step in the right direction, but there is a long road still to cover before I can recommend this series to any longtime fans. Read Full Review

    All in all, SONICH THE HEDGEHOG #5 surprised me in ways I didn't see coming, showing that my favorite villain still has the means to challenge Sonic for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed seeing the Chaotix crew interact with sonic and I love the cliffhanger but did anyone reading this actually buy the Dr. Eggman amnesiac schtick? Because if you did then you probably didn't pay attention to the last issue, or the prologue, or the fact that this exact plot has been done in multiple children-aimed stories over & over again. It's also a shame that Jamal Peppers art is still being mostly wasted with lazy script's. Still, I enjoyed it and I'm really looking forward to the next one.
