- The Mina and Nicole beef being brushed aside caught my attention. Having so much freedom at your beck and call is going to make undoing things you weren't fond of or don't see the logic in continuing a breeze. 

 

That's not really them brushing it away Mina and Nicole talked thinds out in a backup story in #237 I think it was.

3 issues huh? I guess I can see that being easier to get out than 4. Plus as a fan made thing you don't have to worry about what fits in a trade. Also I guess with issue 50 being a standalone this just makes more sense.

Spoiler

 

"Well, the Acorns weren't exactly looking out for our best interests when they tore down our government and took all out riches."

"Oh, and that justifies treason."

... I mean, kinda. Yeah. Honestly, it would for me. That's a massive mountain sized middle-finger of a dick move the Acorn Kingdom pulled there. Considering where I'm at in my readings of the Archie books, I can't say I blame anyone for not wanting to be a part of them either. But that's me. I kind of have this cartoonish hatred of the Acorn Kingdom. I'd probably be on the side of the Eggman Empire if I were in these books and I'd be delighted to get my ass kicked by the Sonic the Hedgehog. God, it'd be such an honor.

Seriously though, this was really good. I like the idea behind what Bunnie is going through here. There was, admittedly, a part of me that went "Oh no" a little when Bunnie asked to be Legionized. I believe I brought this up before but a part of me was worried that due to it being a purely fan continuation things that I liked about the disrupted status quo could get reversed and one of those things was the fact that Bunnie was entirely flesh and blood now. I may need to see the end of this to fully come to grips with my feelings on it but the idea of how it's being done is really good, actually.

The emotional turmoil that comes with being voluntarily legionized and working with the dudes in cloaks kind of goes deep into the heavy consequences of being a spy. Kind of like a more focused example of a situation similar to when Rouge had to destroy the Flying Dog, even though she technically worked for the Government. Sometimes agents need to do stuff like take out other agents or, in this case, mangle their bodies to keep their secret a secret. I like the idea of exploring that more.

Rereading Hassle in the Castle in my recent Archie re-binge, I think it's the best Antoine story ever told, kind of easily. There's not a ton of contenders. The few that are good aren't nearly as good as this one. 

Antoine's final redesign before the "traveling swordsman" bit at the end (which rules), is such a huge improvement and moreso than any of the other Freedom Fighters, however, he's also the only one who I don't feel is totally perfect. He needs some more of his blue (different/darker than Sonic) from the original design, just a little bit as an accent color somewhere on the bandolier or wrist bands or something beyond the belt buckle. I like the overall tint of red/orange/yellow on him as the coyote version of Tails, and I was surprised how much more I liked the character when his design looked more in sync with the Sega designs. (Also the spin attack with the sword from the official Archie comics was cool as heck and for the first time ever made me wish there was a fan mod to play that version of Antoine D'Coyote (i know, just saying that would be a better name and funnier in the French accent)

So I love how the cape adds the sigil on the back with the blue circular emblem and the buckle more pronounced. It's such a kickass design and it's so ironic / perfect for Antoine that his BEST story wasn't officially released. He's a day late and dollar short, as usual. 

I'd love to see more stories with that design of Antoine, which, is crazy.

Hey @SonicWindAttack, really I should write editorial, but I only recently realized that due to Rob'o being King of Mercia, Amy being his cousin means she is a princess (a female cousin of a ruling monarch, read king or queen, is technically a princess) and I was wondering if that would ever be addressed by the ASO team if you know or not.

Amy was indeed born into nobility, although her family renounced their wealth to aid the poor before Robotnik’s takeover.  We do have plans to explore her and Rob’s lineage down the line 👍

Thanks for answering! I'm really looking forward to it since Archie never really touched on Amy's relation to Mercia and being a princess of said nation. Her reckless globetrotting and hanging out in different kingdom really should have had explored consequences and I'm hoping the team will really help me appreciate it.
