changing the topic to sonic idw works too i guess

I quite honestly want a blank slate that starts 90% just from the games and branches out from there. It's what I liked so much about Chronicles.

And since the comic isn't starting out in 1993 or what have you, I feel we won't be as liable to stuff that while interesting, feels like it's not quite Sonic and belongs somewhere else like:

They're like what I wanted SatAM/pre-reboot Archie to be the whole time.
Personally, those 7 pages were much more enjoyable than what I experienced from the both of them combined.

That aside, I don't know what relation this has to IDW. It has Ian Flynn as the script writer (And a story directly from Sonic Team!), but that's where I stop being able to draw any conclusions upon that.
Relatedly, the art could be what we're getting for the main series, or simply not.

No news on whether these will be released for free, purchasable, or available in physical or digital formats either.

that artwork is Hawkworld level awkward. sure hope IDW hires someone more skilled, yuck. also if IDWs just a comicized version of game mythology i wouldn't be interested. why have other media if it can't have creative freedom because you're trying to follow imaginary rules of what is or isn't sonic imposed by fans. i'm not saying writers should deliberately ignore fans, but some of the better Archie arcs weren't exactly purist.

if them sticking completely true to sonic games goes sour you'll see the fans want creative freedom again, but right now sonic comics and creative freedom i'd have to gauge isn't on a "yes" for the comic readers because that went horribly with ken penders

My stance on the usage of one's creative license is this:

Using creative freedom in tandem with keeping basic principals of a series are what allow you to make masterpieces like Mario & Luigi or Super Paper Mario, instead of the Mario Bros. movie.
Sticking too close however, often yields not-so-great results such as Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

more mini comics

Also, I'm getting fairly sure some of these in particular are near Metroid manga levels of canon and relevance for Forces, so watch out if you want to steer further from current plot points.
