  1. Looks like Tails looking in horror at the metal gunk or the ARK, or both!! Also shout out to Jack Lawrence for his debut on the comic, loved his work especially all of Dr Eggman. I'm enjoying this comic, I only picked up the last few issues of the previous run but just enjoying the ride that Ian and the artists are taking us on.

    I hope you won't mind if I ask you a question, actually.  I heard somewhere recently that the whole Brexit mess as regards the Irish border has actually resulted in young people in Northern Ireland growing less antagonistic, or perhaps just more apathetic or resigned, to the idea of Irish unification.  Is that something you get a sense of on the ground, or is it just hot air?

    Nope I don't mind at all. It certainly has put the idea of reunification on the table, will it happen? I don't think so at this moment in time. The Republic of Ireland can't really afford to bring NI on board at the moment. The cost would be huge for the amount of legislation changes required for infrastructure, education and health. It may bring violence back on the streets and no one wants that at all.


  3. I'd be surprised if she gets the deal past the commons next week. I don't fancy a general election, because we had one not that long ago and the EU have said its this deal, no deal or no Brexit so I don't think a change in leadership or Labour coming in would change much. Is another referendum vote on the cards, I think it is but we shall wait and see.


  4. Can Vector and Tangle be a thing?!?! Their interactions were hilarious!!!

    Spoiler

    Good to see Rough and Tumble again, building to their next altercation with Sonic

    Another good solid issue after the last one, looking forward to the next one to see what happens next. The artwork was great and really flowed well with Evan and Tracey working together.

    Collectively? That's an average of 15k each, which is like 1.5x what an average Archie issue would get, and 2x what an average Universe issue would get. 

    Lemme get the real number...

    Sonic #1 - 21,362
    Sonic #2 - 14,684
    Sonic #3 - 13,779
    Sonic #4 - 13,225

    That doesn't seem too much higher than the Archie Sonic average (9 - 10k by the end) going by the figure its trending down to. 

    Edit: For comparison's sake, these are the figures for the first four issues of Sonic Boom.

    Sonic Boom #1 - 17,228

    Sonic Boom #2 - 8,216

    Sonic Boom #3 - 7,474

    Sonic Boom #4 - 6,957

    So it has started higher than that, and stabilised at a higher point. Although bear in mind it's yet to face the challenge of monthly retention. 

    That is some great numbers, will be interesting to see how the comic performs when it goes down to monthly. Really pleased to see the comic doing well


  6. I loved that, I really did. Just as enjoyable as Episode 1, and I just loved the bromance between Sonic and Tails. The end when they clinked Emeralds, I had just such a huge grin on my face. The team are doing a fantastic job on these shorts, can't wait to see what they are going to do with Knuckles in the next episode. 


  7. I enjoyed this issue and really liked Tangle. She reminded me of Amy or a less paranoid Sticks. I hope we get to see more of her in the future and it was so nice to see Blaze back in the comic verse.  Really enjoyed the first 4 issues and hopefully the story telling will start to dig a bit deeper. But I’m happy with the direction we are going in at the moment. 

    I think the biggest surprise has been how well the comic has been selling. I don’t think in there wildest dreams they would have thought of a third printing of #1, so big props to all involved and may this success continue.

    Is it just me or does the art look a bit off in this issue? Don't get me wrong, I love Jennifer's work but something about it doesn't look right, It might be the colours or the lines but I just can't put my finger on it. It didn't spoil my enjoyment of this issue, I like Rough and Tumble, I like them a lot. Hopefully we can get more character development for them in the future. Now onto the final issue of the month and a certain ring tailed lemur's first appearance. Oh and a Team Hooilgan reference :clap_tone2:

    Ok, I’m going to retract my issues with the artwork in #3. I picked up the physical version of #3 yesterday and the artwork is better than the digital version I downloaded on Wednesday, I knew something didn’t look right but must have been the way the digital version looked because in the flesh I really liked it.

    9 variants. For the first fucking issue. Dear god, this is going to be a pain for collectors...

    That's unreal, Let me see: -

    Cover by Tracy

    Cover by Natalie

    Cover by Tyson

    Cover by Kieran

    Connecting Cover Variant (I think)

    Wondercon Variant

    Collectors Box Set Variant

    What are the others?


  11. Really looking forward to this and see what type of stories they come up with, maybe with enough success they could think of going for a full series but that’s a big stretch but not impossible. Tyson must be working flat out at the moment on all his projects but he deserves a lot of credit for what he is doing, keep up the great work.

    I'm optimistic for IDW taking on the series, but I can't help but feel bothered that people from Archie are returning.

    I wanted to see some new blood have a chance on the comics.

    I think this is a smart move, get some of the experienced Sonic artists on board for a while and then allow new artists to slowly bed in.
