Goodreads Synopsis:

Join two of the most popular new characters from Sonic’s world in this classic odd-couple team-up adventure!

Tangle the Lemur’s got a problem: there’s not enough action in her life! Whisper the Wolf’s also got a problem: she’s hunting down an incredibly dangerous enemy named Sonic the Hedgehog! Can Tangle and Whisper help solve each other’s problems, or will they just make things worse?

Also collected is Sonic The Hedgehog: Annual 2019. Join Sonic and some of his coolest friends in adventures that show just how wonderful Sonic’s world really is. In the lead story, Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf team-up to save a friend in need! Then Sonic and Tails take the Tornado for a spin, but is Sonic going too fast? Plus, Silver and Blaze slow down for a minute to go gardening, the Sonic Fan Club has their first official meeting, and Rouge the Bat hunts for treasure! 


This is my first Sonic the Hedgehog comic. It’s about two characters in the Sonic universe: Tangle and Whisper. They encounter a villain, who is a former friend of Whisper. The problem is that this villain, Mimic, can transform into other people, including Sonic. They have to stay on their toes to figure out who is real and who is Mimic.

This graphic novel started out with some short comics about friendship. Each comic had a different set of friends, such as Tangle and Whisper or Sonic and Tails. They had to work together to battle robbers and get justice, or figure out how to build a garden together. These were cute stories to start of the graphic novel. Usually there are short comics at the end of a graphic novel, after the main story, so this one was unique since it started off with them.

It was really cute to see how the other characters idolized Sonic. Some of them even had a Sonic fan club. They liked to copy his racing style, including how he could turn into his ballform to race faster. I liked seeing how Sonic was a celebrity in his own world. It made the story more relatable, since people can be fans of Sonic in real life too.

This was a great graphic novel for fans of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Thank you IDW Publishing for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
