Even with her vest on, half the time she was still drawn with massive, visible boobs. Steven Butler was a seriously guilty party for this around the 2002-2005 or so. Thank god it's something that the newer artists have basically remedied, and Butler's cut back on it, too.
In fairness, she didn't have her vest in the first half of SatAM either. But then at least there she basically had ordinary Sonic proportions as opposed to epic boobage.
And? It's not like other comics don't have this. (looks at pretty much ANY comic with ANY female characters in it) As long as the comic isn't ALL about that then I think it's fine. Different artists, different styles. I like seeing what each new artist does with the Sonic characters. Take for instance around the "Return to Angel Island" arc (about #134 or so) alot of people hated that weird over the top kind of chibi style, but I liked it. Current style I like to. I like anime and I like to see a anime take on Sonic which if it were to happen, yes, would include a boobaged take on some characters. All about how you see the art, and anyways, perhaps a little "maturity" would help shake the stigma of this comic being "for kids only".
Even with a curvaceous body, she was still a blank slate of a character. I mean look at the dialogue next to her ass in that rip. She is droning on about how "she never asked to be a princess" bullshit.
How exactly is she blank? Reluctant princess who helped helm a band of freedom fighters against an evil dictator, complaining that she never wanted the duty of a princess after living a relatively free life as a rebel? Yeah reeks of no characterisation to me.
I do see some bullshit around here, but it ain't from the comic.
I'm taking a "Star Wars" fans stance on the encyclopedia change. I think leave things as they were originally. Why go changing things? Are people really that stuffy that they care a cartoon animal isn't wearing some clothing? Really!? Really wanna be that PC? Shall we go back and put some pants and a dress on the cat Pepe'le'pew chases from WB's cartoons? Where exactly do you draw the line?
The comic isn't overtly sexual at all. I see no need for any kind of censorship.
