  1. Yeah, the sound effects are pretty unimaginative I find, at least it's not as bad as the overuse of 'KER-X' like in the Boom comic. To be honest though I don't really see how what your issue with the action is, could you post an example? Anyway, thanks for giving me an excuse to post some of my favourite sound effects in comics
  2. I just realised something, the first three pages of the Wings of Fire preview are just them all standing around talking. Not that exposition is bad, but I feel when you have a limited page number you should try and make the most of what you have. At the very least I feel they could be walking towards the Gaia Temple, cutting down on the dialogue and maybe add a background gag here and there. It would make the story feel more lively and less Star Wars prequels. It also displays the problem of large casts, we have 11 characters here, and it's clear they're trying in vain to give everyone something to do. Again, it's not that large casts are bad, it's that when you try to give everyone a piece of dialogue or action you dilute the focus. Which going back to the previous point is not something you want to do in a 10 page story. If this was just Sonic and Chip along with Dulcy's FFs we could have had more interaction and characterisation of her team and between Chip and Sonic.
  3. I dunno, I thought most people rather liked things being a bit longer
  4. Big's Big Fishing adventure? You know what, sure. As long as it leads to a massive side-story (which is actually a massive crisis to which Big is but a Forest Gump figure to, the whole arc told from Big's point of view)
  5. A Silver Sonic Shadow (which already sounds like a cool super hero name) arc would be pretty snazzy. As for other characters, on the one hand while I'd love to see a few more familiar faces I just hope they'd get a proper introduction. First impressions do count and given our recent discussions it would probably be best if we keep new characters till after the Universe arc is finished.
  6. Yeah, I'm being immensely thick, seeing as I read that issue last week (to be fair I've been super busy as of late so my mind's in a mush). That and a visit to the Special Stage (remember, the Warp of Confusion is based off the Sonic 1 Special Stage)
  7. Huh, I thought the solicits only just came out... in any case they seem to have solved whatever issue it was that held them up
  8. I'll be honest, it's bad enough we seem to have a surfeit of teams, but then we have to make it like nearly every continent has a local Freedom Fighter branch by giving them a silly name. Just make a group of 3 to 5 guys, each with their own unique skill or quirk ('The leader', 'the brains', 'the orphan') and call them 'The Soumerican Shining Squad' or 'The Efrika Number 1 Freedom Fighters Agency'. Okay, I am exaggerating a little bit. However I wouldn't mind just having one or two characters, who simply lead a group of nameless rebels against the Egg army. Maybe flesh out a couple of grunts but just focus on the main leaders. In fact, I'm trying to remember if we've seen just some bog-standard, normal freedom fighters. It feels less like a conflict and more like a gang war. Also, why aren't there any mixed human/mobian freedom fighters? What's GUN doing in half these cases? Also, it sucks that the Universe arc isn't doing well, it's darn good. EDIT: Ah, yes, I forgot about Lupe's Team of non-names the 'It's Not Lupes'. Still, aside from Relic, Gold, Honey, Ray, the characters from 'Waves of Change' and a few others (Breezie maybe if you discount the S6, plus Mighty if you're not counting him as part of the Chaotix) most characters I can think of from the top of my head are part of some team or the other.
  9. Looking at Eric's panel, it looks like my take on his 'humour' earlier was spot on as usual. I mean really, ""Metal Sonic" sounds so tough and mean!", "Well played", does Eric not know that brevity is the soul of wit? Heck, I would have taken a 'Crystal Pepsi' joke over this. What exactly qualified Eric for this job exactly? Is he someone who actually did something funny once and is just really bad at doing kids stuff? I've actually chuckled at some of Pontac and Graff's stuff but Eric seems to take even the most feeble joke and ruin it.
  10. Okay, that final part is a little bit silly
  11. But the Esquivel Off-Panel writes itself! Panel 1: Katella the Huntress (for it is she) standing at the window of her boomerang shaped spaceship "Time for me to suit up and go out on a space walk" Panel 2: Katella the Huntress wearing what our lawyers say is a safe imitation of Samus's armour. Katella looks annoyed at this (even though she would have clearly seen it was the wrong suit before she put it on) "Argh! The dry cleaners mixed me up with that other girl again!" Alternatively: Panel 1: Katella the Huntress (for it is she) addressing the audience with a cocky manner. "You know, it's not easy being such a beautiful and deadly intergalactic huntress like myself, you make a lot of enemies..." Panel 2-3: Katella (insert) thumbing at a picture of her being chased by what our lawyer says is a safe imitation of a Metriod. "Sometimes they even forget who I am!" (Katella in the image being chased by Metroids) "Go away, you got me mixed up with that other (not as beautiful and deadly)* bounty hunter! *Bracketed because I doubt Eric is capable of making a slightly funny joke. BONUS Eric's fetish Off-panel Panel 1: Eggman and Katella standing together Eggman (for it is he) "If you're going to live with me, you'll have to eat like me." Panel 2: Katella considers this with a look of disgust, imagining herself as a chubby figure eating eggs. Archie's staff die of laughter, Eric get's paid his usual fee of $10 and whatever he can rummage from the canteen biscuit tin.
  12. I like the idea of the latter; all across the world two pitchmen are in an intensive rivalry to shill as many 'useful' products as possible (think BILLY MAYS and Anthony Sullivan). Turns out these products are made by Dr Eggman and are turning people into robotic slaves (or something) can Sonic and Tails get to the bottom of the mystery before it's too late? Her devouring her planet could be nicely dark, though maybe too dark for the comic. The only problem with it is that it might lead to another one of those 'the villain isn't really all bad' thing which Ian does play a fair bit. (though thankfully so far most of the Egg Bosses seem to be in it to win it)
  13. Wouldn't she just be interested in whatever specimens she could find? A blue hedgehog, a two-tailed fox, who wouldn't pay top dollar for those? Alternatively, she could end up turning on a metaphorical dime by switching sides to Eggman if he offers her an even larger wodge of cash. While we're on the topic, let's just run down some potential characters from the show and see what ideas we can come up with for them. Dr Warpnik I've mentioned, but I can easily see him as some dimension hopping entity, maybe in a story involving Blaze and/or Silver. Perhaps a future threat or one from a mirror universe (the latter could get a great/tedious 'Sanic' character, though I imagine there's a mandate against alternative versions of characters, and Penders). Dr Qwark and DUFUS I feel could be re-envisioned as small-time rivals to Eggman, DUFUS especially could make for an interesting character, a shape-shifter who maybe develops his own free-will (maybe like Shard?) Captain John Paul Memo: If and when we return to Meropis Memo could make for a good one-off villain like he did in the show. Captain Rescue: I admit this is a stretch, but the 'washed-up superhero' is always something I like to see. To be honest I feel the comic could do with more one-off, non-arc stories and he'd make a good subject for one. Professor Caininestein: To quote the Simpsons, "needs more dawg!" We really do need more dogs in the Sonic universe, I can imagine him as some friend or mentor to Muttski in that capacity. Maybe he could be a character to help the present cast get involved with time travel, allowing them to meet Silver. Captain William Le Duc: We need more ducks, especially adventuring ducks. Collie Chang, Well, we do need a news personality and she fits that bill. Even if she dresses like a weather girl, which could make for a nice running gag; people underestimating her only for her to come out with a very sharp and eloquent question or point that makes the interviewee uncomfortable. Of course, for all of these the problem of time constraints and the need to give every character a time in the spotlight (especially comic characters) makes it very hard to fit them in a meaningful way. However I hope to at least see some redesigned AoStH characters like Roxy or Hacker in the background, they make very nice little callbacks that fans would recognise and appreciate. Also, Wes Weasley story arc.
  14. That would be interesting, though I hope it would be in a mercenary capacity. She seems like a self-absorbed individual.
  15. Did they say that? Because I'm pretty sure it's a case of 'if we feel we can make use of a character we'll put them in there' or something.
