    Archie Sonic the Hedgehog - Issue #69: A Day in the Life

    Another Karl Bollers story. Seems to be about the crew coming together to either discuss some things or have a party maybe? I don’t know. We never really got much after the Elias reveal so… I’m hoping that happens now. The cover is fine.
    Uh… yeah. That issue was very much a start to a story issue. Nothing too interesting or too unexpected happened. The part where Sonic told Antoine about his dad would have surprised me had I not been told it was going to happen but I’m glad I was since I probably would have forgotten by now that Sonic was being written by Penders when he decided he wasn’t going to say anything to Ant like a hypocritical asshole. 
    The entire Wolf Pack thing was superfluous to an astonishing level. I have no clue why ink and lettering was wasted on this story. I don’t know who decided we needed a more in-depth look at the wolf pack and why they didn’t bother actually delivering one if they were going to bother. It was just a bunch of characters whose names I’ll forget tomorrow repeating the same things and literally getting nowhere and doing nothing to advance their situation. So par for the course when it comes to Penders I guess.
     
    Archie Sonic the Hedgehog - Issue #70: Saving Nate Morgan

    Facing the FURY of … this…guy…
    Yeah, I know who Kodos is, obviously but… it kind of feels like I also don’t. I dunno. He’s such an underwhelming villain. I barely even have a grasp on his personality. Dude just showed up one day and was suddenly important. Same with Arachnis. It’s even worse for Arachnis since she can’t even talk. This cover is awesome though. Although, I feel it’d be even better if I could properly make out what I’m seeing. It’s obviously Sonic and Elias facing off against Kodos but Kodos’ body is so weird looking that he just comes off as a bunch of shapes soaked in the rain.
    This issue would have been total, trash garbage had it not been for the second story. Plenty of stories have gone out on whimpers before, some in far worse ways than this one, but that still doesn’t make it acceptable whenever it happens. Thankfully, the second story hit close to home in a way that was poignant and relatable enough to work. The art was fine as well. It wasn’t the best but none of it looked horrendous either. 
    This issue was half of a success.
     
    Archie Sonic the Hedgehog - Issue #71: Tales of the Great War Prelude: In The Beginning

    Neat cover. He’s running so fast he’s tearing apart the fabric of reality so that the end begins and beginning ends… or something. Something paradoxical I think. It promises to be the strangest issue I'll ever read but I doubt that unless its revealed Sonic is also a Nazi or something. Or even better; Tails is.
    So they weren’t lying about it being a very weird issue. That was weird and extremely hard to follow at times but here at the end I get what they were going for and despite my numerous frustrations I admire the attempt.
    I was still waiting for the explanation on how Sonic turned the way he was to show up at the end but then I realized that the book is literally being told in reverse so the first page of Sonic in his new form is actually the LAST page of the story. If you read from bottom up, you’ll be able to get a clearer idea of what’s going on…
    It’s a very interesting experiment. I really hated going through it the first time but now that I have a clearer picture of what’s going on, I’m cycling back through it the other way and finding some things making more sense than I thought they initially did. Even the weird beam does now. 
    I just wish the weird science talk wasn’t injected the way it was. I didn’t need Sonic being able to randomly shake his molecules and talk of Mobius going backwards and forwards at the same time. I feel like Sonic has pulled weird powers like that out of his ass before, used them for specific occassions, and then never uses them again far too often.
    The big failing of this issue, honestly, is that one line Sonic has about running through what happened for Sally. If that weren’t there, I’d probably be less annoyed by how I figured Sonic was recounting the story and more focused on figuring out what was happening. As it stands, I went through it thinking it was just weirdly structured for the hell of it. 
    Now with all that said… I really don’t know how this story explains how Sonic’s eyes turned green and how his shoe got a buckle on it.

    Sonictrainer reacted to Dreadknux in #TSS20th! Classic Banners Return to SSMB   
    Happy June everyone! We're a little closer to The Sonic Stadium's 20th Anniversary (October 24th) and to continue our celebrations we've adapted the SSMB header so that you can see TSS' title banner evolution over the years.
    If you are viewing SSMB on Desktop, you'll notice on Sonical 2020 or Sonical Dark 2020, the header area includes a smaller 'TSS 20 YEARS' logo in the corner (always available in case you want a quick-link back to the landing page) and a random banner in the centre background. This area will show you a random banner from our 20 years in operation - from our very first logo from 2000 to our last banners back in 2015.
    We also have included almost all of our SSMB-user-created banners from back when we marked our TENTH anniversary in 2010. Man, how time flies - it's been ten years since that moment already! Some of the creators of these community banners are still on these forums today. We hope it will draw some positive nostalgic feelings for all of us.
    The next step here is for us to be open to NEW rotating banners. I'd like to explore ways we can have the community here today create the next generation of TSS/SSMB banners to mark our 20th anniversary. Let me know if you'd be up for getting your artistic hat on, and we'll formally kick off a campaign to create new banners soon!

    Sonictrainer reacted to Indigo Rush in TSSZ is gone?   
    At the very least, there's been action taken to preserve some articles. @SSF1991 was able to salvage his work and archive it online. He shouldn't have needed to, Tristan should never have shut the site down, but thankfully a valuable chunk of our community history has been saved. 
    If TSSZ does return, I am not confident in Tristan's ability to lead or manage it. He has shown time and again through his actions and demeanor that he is unfit for such a role, and if this whole debacle doesn't prove it, nothing will. 
    I wish the best to all of the staff who were just as shocked at their loss of work. Hopefully they can also archive their articles and features and move forward to better things in the community.

    Sonictrainer reacted to Dreadknux in TSSZ is gone?   
    Yeah, this is quite a surprising turn of events. For what it's worth, I was supporting of TSSZ's coverage/amplification of news surrounding the BLM protests before the 'Sonic Adventure 2/Sonic Forces comparison' tweet happened. I can certainly see the argument that, as long as you're not editorialising anything, letting your audience (who may only know about Sonic depending on what accounts they follow) know about a huge cultural event taking place is important. Even if he did go a bit ham on the retweets, but that's neither here or there.
    The comparison tweet was a misstep though, and should have resulted in a walkback from TSSZ. Sadly, that didn't happen - maybe it was heat of the moment (always a good reason to take a break from social media every now and then), or lockdown anxiety or something, but the response to community reaction to that particular tweet could have been handled better.
    It certainly doesn't necessitate a shutdown of the site. For better or worse, TSSZ has been an important part of the online Sonic community and we're all the poorer for it not existing (at the very least, in archive form). I hope Tristan takes a few days to cool off and figure out a new way forward.

    Sonic X - Issue #1: Savings and Groan

    Surprise! I would make a Gotta Go Fast joke but I’m a bit too slow. Also, I’m more a fan of the Sonic Drive myself.
    Anyway, yes, it is time to dive into Sonic X and I’ll be doing so interchangeably between the main book and the Knuckles book until that mercifully peters out. This is actually the perfect place to start thanks to how I’ve mapped everything out so I’m good there.
    Most importantly though, I’m looking forward to talking about a comic that’s actually really, consistently good for a change… starting at a certain point. This book had a very rocky start and you can tell by more than just the initial artwork starting out but that’s a whole kettle of fish that I’m also dying to get into. Let’s just say the OBVIOUS tracing was something you, at the bare minimum,  only need be a fan of the show to pick up on. The writing being good isn’t the only thing you can rely on in a visual medium like comic books after all. I’m so ready to do this. Let’s go!
    So that was the first issue of Sonic X. I can’t say I thought it was outright terrible but it’s still a pretty substandard first issue as things go. It does a fairly good job of outlining what the basic structure and plot of the series is but it does so with an extremely basic story. It was amusing at the beginning but developed into something that would have been better suited for an episode of the anime rather than a comic, honestly. 
    This book just needs to push what it’s good at in the medium that it's in more often and it can’t really do that with the art looking as bad as it does. Everyone looks so deformed and weird. It's like you took some paper cut outs of the characters body parts and stuck them together with tape or something. Not to mention, the tiny flashes of images I’m certain I’ve seen from the show are distracting. It’s not anywhere near heavy enough for it to be super blatant like it is in some of the issues coming up but man it's going to take a while before we get off the ground and into something nice and special.
    That wasn’t painful though. Let’s move on to something that probably will be.
     
    Knuckles the Echidna - Issue #25: Childhood’s End

    Oh boy.
    It’s the meeting we’ve all been waiting for. Let’s… dive in shall we?
    Oh yeah, it’s a milestone issue. This comic lasted long enough to have one. Fuck. It’s not that good of a cover considering the occasion but it’s appropriately simple enough, I suppose.
    Whatever. I’m stalling. 
    What a legendary issue. It’s such an incredible mismanagement of characters and a terribly executed way of trying to justify the awful actions of this extremely hateable bullshitter. Not only are his actions unjustified but the explanation for why he HAD to do what he did, the WAY he did it, never came.
    I was expecting it to be a weak explanation that didn’t justify the extremes he took but it’s almost literally nothing. Locke had a context-less dream and his reaction was just to do… all of that shit? I didn’t even get an explanation for why Haven HAD to be kept secret or why Knuckles couldn’t be told any of this. They just decided not to tell him. At this point it kind of feels like the only reason they could have had to keep it secret was because they were ashamed of pumping Knuckles’ egg full of radiation as a gross overreaction to a dream Locke had. 
    Knuckles, you didn’t get any sort of satisfactory answer to the questions you asked. None of what Locke said to you provided you with an answer as to why you were abandoned and not informed about any of this. The lesson from the story about Aaron couldn’t have possibly been to inform the guardian LESS about information because the only reason they weren’t blown up is because Aaron knew as much as he did. He died on his own and their reaction was to make them EVEN MORE ALONE FOR EVEN LONGER PERIODS OF TIME!
    None of this makes any sense!
    And Knuckles’ reaction is to just go along with it and say “I wuv you dad”. 
    Fuck right off with this garbage. I mean, it’s still really funny but also, still, fuck you. 
    That’s it huh? It was all leading up to this. Locke’s dream may have been the reason he decided to take action but it’s not the reason he decided the actions he took were the necessary ones to make. A PROPER answer for why he decided to lie and isolate Knuckles doesn’t seem to exist and honestly… that really makes me mad. 
    Seriously, the more I think about it the less funny it gets and the more legitimately upset I’m starting to feel. I didn’t even buy these old issues when they came out and I feel like I was just taken for a ride.
    I didn’t expect much justification but I didn’t even really get that. 
    Just… damn.
    Goddammit.

    Yeah, that about sums it up.
     
    Sonic Super Special - Issue #8: Zone Wars: Prelude

    Looks like the cover of a Shojo manga. Never been a fan of that style and I can’t say this is making me like it anymore. Let’s move on so I can stop looking at it.
    That was certainly a collection of stories alright. In those stories, things happened. They all began and then they all ended.
    Yup, they sure did.
    You know, you can advertise your book with 48 pages all you want but that doesn’t necessarily mean the contents are gonna be any better. That’s for sure. Good God, that last story wasn’t worth the extra pages just because of the art alone. I’d feel ripped off if I had gotten it. Goodness me.
    Well, next time we’re back onto the main book. Can’t wait, I guess.
    Begun the Zone Wars have apparently.

    It feels weird walking into this thread feeling the exact opposite way I did coming into the original thread for the first film. If I went back in time and told myself that not only would have I watched the movie but enjoyed it and bought the blu ray but would also be anticipating the sequel, I'd contemplate kicking myself in the face and stealing my own lunch money, probably.
    Yeah no, I'm actually super excited to see what they'll do next. I wanna see the full Jim Carrey Eggman transformation. I wanna see what Tails' role is going to be and how he meets and works off of Sonic. I want to see if they actually keep Colleen for the film. I want to see if Tails' design is going to be given any tweaks or if what we saw was his finished look. I want to see if there's going to be more Sonic remixes within the soundtrack. I want to know what the deal with the Echidna tribe is. I want to know if Longclaw is alive. I want to know if Crazy Carl ever got his chainsaw back.
    I'm in. Sign me up.

    I love Genesis, if only for the nostalgic memories it brings up. And I’m not talking about “classic Sonic game” memories.
    That general period in the fandom was absolutely nuts, with whether or not Sally had indeed died at the end of 225 being a hot topic for a solid four months, with responses from both sides being pure gold; I recall how on Bumbleking there was a thread opened up that was dedicated exclusively to making fun of it all.
    As for the story itself; I still liked it. The way it played on my suspense was pretty well done imo. There was a hint of tension that came from seeing Sonic and co initially going about their new life remaining completely unaware that something big was happening right under their noses, with those tensions ramping up when the old memories started to leak through. I remember getting proper chills when this panel suddenly popped up in part 3.

    Regarding the dingos, I keep forgetting that they're technically ALSO supposed to be Nazi stand-ins because they're not being written that way. Everything about them is coming off as sympathetic and their reactions are pretty understandable as far as I'm concerned. Everytime I read Von Stryker's name I get reminded of it but its really weird.
    Like the book just became "Oops! All Nazis!" now.

    Sonictrainer reacted to Sega DogTagz in Was Amy ever THAT bad?   
    Just to provide a spot of clarity to anyone who didn't play the handhelds 
     
    In Battle Amy more or less forced Cream to participate in a few Boxersize matches, to which Cream was a vocally unwilling participant (which was even more jarring considering this was Cream at the height of her pacifist persona). Boxersize was essentially sparring, so Amy was forcing Cream to defend herself in combat, in the name of getting fit enough for Sonic to notice her. Amy was so focused on getting fit, that Creams objections fell on deaf ears and Amy's own health took a turn for the worse due to over-exertion. 
    In Rush, Cream introduces Amy to Blaze and remarks that her adoration of Sonic makes her short-sighted, to which Amy responds violently. She makes a clear threat and chases her with her Hammer. Cream shouts something along the lines of "Not Again!" making it appear that this is not a rare occurrence. The altercation is short lived.

    Sonictrainer reacted to Kuzu in Was Amy ever THAT bad?   
    Honestly, it depends on how you feel; many felt that her crush dominated her character, to the point where she had very few personality traits that didn't revolve around Sonic in some way, and that was compounded at how violent and angry she had become in her pursuit of Sonic. It just left a real negative impression to the point that people straight up wanted her crush gone, or at the very least, for her character to have more dimensions. 
    Nowadays though? She really doesn't have any role or do anything of note, so it's hard to say if it's "better" or not. Her more prominent roles lately come from alternative media, and they have downplayed her crush quite a bit. Probably not to the point of being non-existent, but it's certainly a far cry from when she would tackle-hug Sonic at every interval. 
    For the most part though, I feel like she's slowly becoming a more rounded character who is capable of doing more than just crushing on Sonic, and regardless of how anyone feels about it, I think that's a GOOD thing because as a main character, Amy SHOULD be well rounded. That being said, I do wish they could give her more of her old immature and bratty moments to balance out her more competent streak. Show some chinks in that armor ya know.

    Knuckles the Echidna - Issue #22: Dark Alliance - Part 1 of 3: You Say You Want A Revolution...

    Oh my God. This story is gonna blow. Ken Penders and politics is like oil and water. The fucking dingos holding up picket signs saying “Echidna’s Unfair” is just… I mean, it's true but goddammit. \
    I’m not a fan of the way this cover looks either. I don’t like the way the characters are drawn and I’m certain it’s supposed to be cluttered but it’s not done in an appealing way. There’s a lot of cluttered covers in the IDW series and they look amazing.
    So… yeah… this issue was… something.
    It’s the start of an arc about an election that so far has an… understandable issue I guess. The echidnas don’t give a shit about the dingos and, despite not thinking it’ll matter who gets elected, they see it as a possible chance for something to change, maybe? Dimitri legionizing this dude is pretty metal but the "brilliant" plan of doing so to mess with an election seems kind of goofy. This was mostly a set-up issue and at times it felt like it was being penciled by a completely different person throughout. 
    I feel like the only reason I’m not reacting worse to this is because I’ve had fair warning as to how bad this gets. I’ve heard about this and I’m mostly in shock that I’m finally witnessing it for myself. The Holocaust poem thing is just… REALLY fucking weird. 
    Yeah, I think of Sonic the Hedgehog and the first thing that comes to mind are the Nazis and the holocaust. THIS IS IN AN OFFICIALLY LICENSED SONIC ThE HEDGEHOG BOOK!
    SOMEONE SAID YES TO THIS!
     
    Knuckles the Echidna - Issue #23: Dark Alliance - Part 2 of 3: Election Night

    Yeah, these covers just aren’t doing it for me. Not for nothing, these Knuckles issues at least give me a lot to talk about but damn… what’s coming next is gonna be some pureil dog shit of the highest order, your honor.
    This is it folks. We’ve done it. We’ve found it. The holy grail of bad Knuckles issues. This is the shiz-nite!
    WHY make the Dark Legion Nazis? I don’t even get what the subtext is even supposed to be anymore. Hell, your connection between Robotnik and the Nazis doesn’t even work, why would it work HERE? Also, why do it AGAIN? Why do we need two parallels to the Nazis in this Sonic the Hedgehog book? Why does Penders think Sonic the Hedgehog needs more Nazis?
    Considering what we know about them, it makes no sense. This group was formed because the terrible echidna society screwed them over by forcefully taking their technology away and being a bunch of hypocrites by hoarding it in certain places and what not. That’s a sympathetic angle and it should be acknowledged at least a LITTLE bit. But it’s NOT. They’re being portrayed as completely in the wrong and he’s trying to do everything in his power to make them irredeemably bad. All this is accomplishing is that I’m becoming more confused. I’m definitely not on the side of the “good” echidnas, I can’t have any sympathy for the Dark Legion because of all the terrorist shit, and Knuckles straight up doesn’t give a fuck. The only reason he’s even a part of this story is because Dimitri sent his henchman to capture him.
    Then at the end of the issue, Dimitri’s like “You can’t stop me now!” as though Knuckles was doing something to try and stop him here. It’s like someone just remembered, “Oh yeah. Wasn’t this supposed to be about Knuckles?” and so they just got him roped up into the situation at the last minute. Knuckles has said, multiple times, that he doesn’t care who wins the election. He and the Chaotix have done nothing for two issues now while this story is going on around them because it intrigues them none. 
    That’s not even getting into how POINTLESS the fucking election is. What is the point of the election?! I could maybe see the point of it at the very start with the conflict they were setting up but it didn’t turn out to be some sort of political espionage. They just made their shit public anyway! WHY?! Hell, the name of this issue was “Election Night” and there was no election!
    This is already up there as the best worst thing I’ve ever read in my life. I can’t believe it. I still have another issue of this left!
     
    Knuckles the Echidna - Issue #24: Dark Alliance - Part 3 of 3: Primary Evil


    Ahaha~! Primary evil. Do you get it? It’s like the evil primary. Ha… 
    Goddamnit. 
    I will say that I like the cover this time. It’s easily the best of the three if only because it feels a lot less cluttered due to how much better the coloring is. It works in its advantage that way. That’ll probably be the only thing I have to praise about this. I’m shuffling through finding this hilarious and being flabbergasted that this is real. 
    This third issue was the least fun of the issues in this bunch because it was mostly the already broken and rundown story catapulting itself to the end without too much left to surprise me. All that said, Jesus Christ, what a monumental, legendarily bad garbage fire.
    I’m just imagining Ken Penders riding up to your house with a dump truck and dumping all the slop in the back all over you, your yard, your front porch, and your dog. 
    This shit was bonkers mate. 
    The second issue especially was one of the most entertainingly bad things I’ve ever read in my life. If I’m forced to read more of this shit, it would be a privilege in the name of being shocked and embarrassed for the comic book industry, to read more stuff like that. I’m just flabbergasted by it all. The moment where Benedict gave his speech made me want to get up and clap in celebration. That's going down in history as the most fucked up, delightfully gross, unabashedly insane things I've ever read.
    Dimitri came back talking a big game about how Enerjak made him stupid. No, losing Enerjak made you stupid. What the hell was that? I guess I’m just gonna have to face the fact that Dimitri was just a really shitty villain back in the day. In the comics I got into from 160 onward, I always thought he was intriguing based on how they spoke of his past but this dude is running on major Penderp fumes. 
    The Chaotix were useless and did nothing. They disappeared when Xenin showed up actually. He wrote out Charmy but they ALL might as well be dust in the wind. 
    Knuckles had nothing to do with or in this story at all. This story wasn’t about Knuckles and Knuckles didn’t give a shit about any of what was going on. He wasn’t active for any of what was going on here, only becoming slightly relevant when Dimitri randomly kidnapped him and in the final issue, he spent the entire thing strapped to table until his echidna powers made everything explode. Again, with no prompting from Knuckles himself. Stuff just happens to him and around him. 
    The election was pointless. I still don’t get what appointing a robot to the high council was supposed to do. I get that it might be beneficial to have someone on the inside but if you literally announce to everyone that you’re a legionare by spouting Dark Legion rhetoric and doing the Nazi dance on stage, then what’s the point? Also, if you’re gonna rig the vote then what’s the point of even doing THAT much? Why not just use the brainwashed high counselor?
