The newest Sonic character has been revealed on the IDW Sonic Comic Squad! The mysterious silhouette holding Sonic’s hand was none other than Tangled the Ring-Tailed Lemur! However, she was not holding hands with him, but actually using her prehensile tail, confusing many as to the strange, bushy appearance of the supposed hand. Likewise, a cover (#4B) for issue #4, illustrated by Evan Stanley, has also been leaked showing that the 4th issue will not only feature Sonic’s newest ally, but returning character, Blaze the Cat! This revelation essentially cements that issue #3 will feature Knuckles the Echidna, but that still remains to be seen!
Initial reactions to Tangled and her design have been largely positive, with support and fan art already emerging amongst the community. Likewise, this reinforces the idea that we will not likely be seeing Sally or the other Freedom Fighters any time soon, if ever. What role Tangled will play in the new book also remains to be seen. What do you think of the new character? Did the hype pay off or are you left disappointed? Let us know in the comments below!
