I know this is very likely a fruitless task, but you know what? I'm going to do it anyways.
I have made a new petition for trying to bring select pre-reboot Archie Sonic characters like Hershey the Cat/St. John back to the IDW Sonic comic sometime in the future after 2018. We all know there's a petition for the Freedom Fighters appearing in the comics, and I even made a petition to release unused artworks and manuscripts made before the legal issues with Archie Comics Publications and Ken Penders.
Even if an older petition I made failed, this new one still has a small chance of succeeding. So I encourage you guys to sign and share this new petition I made to see if IDW Publishing will add certain characters. After all, IDW is famous for bringing back and completing older runs of fan-favorite franchise books when they can.
Here's the link to the new petition:
