The mastermind behind the Metal Virus isn't done yet. Ian Flynn returns to answer: What happened to Dr. Starline?
The Shadowy Scientist is back to his evil antics in Bad Guys! And what better place to concoct nefarious plans than one of Dr. Eggman's abandoned bases? But that is easier said than done when badniks are guarding the entrance! Dr. Starline knows he can't do it alone, so he decides to recruit some familiar and not so friendly faces.

    When all is said and done, Sonic the Hedgehog: Bad Guys #1 delivers a strong start for this story and has a fair helping of fun along the way. Read Full Review

    While it functions in a comfortable mode, Sonic the Hedgehog: Bad Guys would benefit from borrowing its originator's sense of import as well. Read Full Review

    Sonic had a lot of interesting foes in the Archie series I sure miss, like Scourge, Mammoth Mogul, Ixis Naugus, Dr. Finitevus and the Dark Legion, who menaced Knuckles just to name a few. But he's made some new ones lately. Dr. Starline is probably the most interesting IDW-introduced villain yet, so I expect this to be an interesting Mini-Series as he's the starring baddie.
    I was impressed with this first issue and with things back to normal with the Metal Virus saga behind us, I have high hopes of seeing Ian Flynn come up with some exciting new stuff like what he did that made Sonic the best comic I was collecting 2012-16 (I keep track of my favorites).
