Sonic's second movie outing is almost here, and in case you missed it, IDW is releasing an official "pre-quill" comic - linking together the first and second big-screen adventures of the blue blur.

It'll arrive in stores later this month on 23rd March for $6.99 USD, and contains five stories across 40 pages - with art from Tracey Yardley, Adam Bryce Thomas and Evan Stanley. And here's the really exciting announcement revealed by the comic's writer Keil Phegley - Robotnik's actor, Jim Carrey, was involved.

"If you need any more incentive to order a copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 2: The Official Movie Pre-Quill comic, the Robotnik story was spearheaded by the absolute G.O.A.T. Mr. Jim Carrey! It's really weird & dope."

A fan asked what exactly this meant, and Phegley explained how Jim sent the team a concept which was then transformed into a script with dialogue and some fantastic art:

"Hard to describe without spoiling anything, and I REALLY want people to enjoy the stories fresh. But basic is that Jim had a concept for Robotnik and sent us (via producer) a rough outline of about a page. I turned it into a 5-page script w dialogue etc, & the art team nailed it."
