IDW’s Sonic The Hedgehog Team Openly Insults Their Customers

IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog team including writer Ian Flynn, artist Tracy Yardley, and editor David Mariotte are the latest folks from IDW to come out and insult their customers.

Flynn and Mariotte follow in the footsteps of Jonathan H. Gray, who described comic fans as racists, homophobes, xenophobes, and Nazis, and IDW executive Justin Eisinger who intimated he wanted to execute Trump supporters via guillotine.

Back in July, Flynn went on a political diatribe against conservatives and devout people. (Archive link:


Flynn would follow up this political stance against conservatives and devout people by attacking members of Comicsgate at large earlier this month. (Archive link:

Flynn’s words echo IDW editor David Mariotte, who labeled Diversity & Comics a “hate person.” He also labeled Comicsgate members as sexist, racist, homophobic, and transphobic.

Along with the writer and editor of Sonic insulting their fans, artist Tracy Yardley has also made it clear that he has a problem with customers especially if they are white.

He also intimates that 50% of the United States of America is associated with Nazis and white supremacists.

While these IDW creators continue to attack, insult, and ridicule their customers, IDW Publishing is struggling financially. In fact, their most recent financial report saw comic and graphic novel sales decline by $173,000. IDW blamed a “continued industry cyclical downward pressure driven by market leaders, as well as the timing of significant major brand titles.”

However, it’s quite possible the behavior of their creators might be resulting in their decline in revenue and sales.

In fact, YouTuber That Umbrella Guy reports that a number of fans are contacting Sega over IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog creators.
