IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Nothing about the SEGA characters can change without permission. Mis-remembering the wording of the mandates causes them to seem more overblown than they really are. 

Sonic can't bawl and be over-emotional = "Sonic can never emote at all beyond being a cheese machine even when Eggman is destroying everything and everyone he knows and loves and must crack jokes and Nike smile even while Tails is in pieces before his very eyes"

Sonic always has to win = "Sonic can literally never be challenged and he can never lose anything at all, consequences don't exist"

THANK YOU! God it bugs me how everyone misinterprets what the Mandates actually say.

If anyone knew, they'd have said already. There's no point asking when here as it's random and sometimes spread across comic sites.

-Not sure

-Should be Wednesday. Solicits were pushed back because of there being 5 weeks this month.

So it should be the Chaotix we are getting in issue 5, right? That being the case and that we still seem to be following the one character introduced per issue format, does anyone think that they'll be handled well or will they just get stuck being the most basic aspects of their archetypes and over shadowed by Eggman? I would personally like to think that we'll get more than that, but considering how one note Knuckles seemed in issue 5 and how dynamic of a character Eggman is I don't expect. I kind of expect the doctor to take over the issue unless he's regulated to the end of it. Hopefully my concerns are unfounded but what does everyone else think?

Which is weird, consider one note would kinda imply he was competitive with Sonic, which is kinda what was missing.

And it was issue 3. Gosh.

Characters having explanations that explain a character trait that hasn't been relevant or used in years or ever still being used as short form explanation is something that everyone should be used to.

I'm not used to Sonic's face being so expressive in CGI form...

Whoo-whee...

He's looked plenty angry a couple of times at least.

Well, when I said one note I kind of meant that all we were given was him being straightforwardly naively over serious. There was no banter, no sign of Knuckles enjoying himself or being frustrated. He was just straightforwardly naively serious with nothing else. Hence, one note.

As for my careless lack of proof reading

3 vs. 5, round 3 or 5, FIGHT!

Yeah, I realize. Just wanted to point out what was missing, really.

It's too bad that issue's writing seemed too simple and newcomer friendly for it's own good considering it had the setup to the best of the four.

Oh Tracy is drawing this issue. Thought it would be Jamal Peppers.

So then, looks like the opening arc truly ends with Issue 7 then.

 

Spoiler

As for the new character Whisper, will she be an ally, a villain, or just someone to push the story forward? Hopefully she's someone fleshed out regardless and this "Guardian Angel" angle provides us with something interesting. Regardless, it won't be much longer until IDW starts to move away from Forces' fallout so I'm definitely looking forward to it.

One of the covers

I love this cover so much and how it displays Sonic and Silver. Nathalie is really winning me over with her work and kind of makes me feel sad about getting the comics digitally through Amazon Kindle. Unfortunately though that's really the only way I can the comics right now so I'll just have to cherish these from a distance I guess XD
