- Added a text-only inventory to Archie Sonic Online and Sonic the Comic Online.
- Moved the Sonic the Comic Online special "Exit: Sonic" to the end of the series. It was written/illustrated/colored by some alumi members of the original Sonic the Comic magazine. It is meant to be a future story, telling the finale of the comic series.
- Added "The Complete Vichama" to the Sonic the Comic Holiday Specials page, as it's apparently a "Hallowe'en 2009" special.
- Fixed the Archie Sonic Online comics at the bottom of the Archie Complete Inventory page.
15 May 2022
- New changes to the website! I'm reaching outside my comfort zone and experimenting with CSS and dropdown menus! All the links on the homepage have been condensed into dropdown menus. It looks a lot less cluttered now.
- I also replaced the "link to larger images" link on the IDW inventory page with a drop-down menu. Now you can view the full IDW inventory in one of four different sizes: thumbnail, small, medium, and large. If you're browsing from a mobile device, be careful of the larger file sizes. I haven't figured out incremental page loading yet, so the full webpage will open all at once and drain your data. I'll be doing the same on Archie and Fleetway comics soon.
- I separated the Free Comic Book Day comics from the free comic promotionals on the IDW FCBD page.
- And finally, I updated IDW #50B's cover. I literally updated it with a raw cover a few days ago and the very next day, they released the full cover. My work is never done...

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.

- Plus, I added a diorama image for IDW #29RI and 30RI and added Sonic Bad Guys B covers to the diorama page.
- 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.
