- Updated release dates for IDW's Sonic 30th Anniversary Free Comic Book Day, IDW Sonic #39, Sonic: Bad Guys graphic novel, and Sonic vol #9.

18 Mar 2021
- Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary was announced today, with 4 unique covers: One-Shot A, One-Shot B, Deluxe Edition, and Free Comic Book Day. It remains to be seen if there will be a difference between the One-Shot issue and the Free Comic Book Day issue.
- Sonic the Hedgehog - The IDW Collection #1 got a slight update to its cover. Inststead of a black-and-white checkered pattern on the left side, it now is a black-and-fading-blue checkered pattern.
7 Mar 2021

27 Feb 2021
- Sorry for falling behind on updates again. I'm still deployed with the US military for about another month. Hopefully I'll be able to stay caught up once I return home.
- I discovered a Scholastic-exclusive graphic novel that released sometime in 2019. It appears to reprint IDW Sonic Annual 2019, Tangle & Whisper #0, and IDW Sonic #13, as well as displaying some variant covers by Nathalie Fourdraine. I've added it to IDW Graphic Novels and IDW Retail Exclusives pages.
- Moved both Team Sonic Racing comics to the start of the IDW reading order. I've been looking for a place to slip them in to the reading order for a long time, but at this point, I feel like they're better as a precursor to the whole series. One-Shot comics are a pain to deal with in a timeline.
- Rebuilt the IDW Complete Inventory page(s) to include graphic novels and the Sonic #1-4 Box Set. Now everything is included in the "complete" inventory!
- Moved Tangle & Whisper graphic novel to just before Sonic vol 4. Dunno why I put it in the wrong reading order, but it's fixed now.
- Updated final covers for IDW Sonic #36A, 36B, 36RI, and 37B.
- Added covers for IDW Sonic #37A, 37RI, 38B, 38RI, 39A, 40B, and 41A.
- Updated release dates for IDW Sonic #36-38. Moved #36 and #37 to released.
- Updated the IDW Text-Only Inventory: added issues #36-37 and Sonic: Bonds of Friendship graphic novel. Moved the Tangle & Whisper graphic novel and the two Team Sonic Racing comics to their appropriate reading order placement.

18 Nov 2020

- Finally, I built a new page that's a simplified text list of IDW comics, since there are so many variant covers. You can find it on the top of the IDW inventory page and on the homepage. I plan to build a similar one for Archie Comics as well.
