Actually, there are a couple of female background characters that don't have pants in Issue 3. 

Progressive. Though to be fair, all the story relevant ones have pants. So among  designs sega may care about its consistent. They even put pants on sally, eventually

I hate referring to ff in this thread but I mean Sally didn't wear pants. Could be a girl honestly

Also is neo still alive. Where does he go

Is weird, some people are actually confused if is a he or she. Is a slightly androgenous design, I like it. I would give a Kuja from Final Fantasy IX type of voice.

 

no pants=male in Sonic's world

That is not true all the time  why do people keep saying this

It is, official SEGA rules are that males can't have pants, and issue 3 was just an exception that the SEGA officials did not pay attention to.

Females: pants always, Males: pants never, so it's a platypus guy 100%.

We're not in prereboot when SEGA had no mandates.

Metal ended up being a rather dumb threat. This issue is considerably worst than the last two. Still not as bad as post-reboot stuff, tho, so I'll keep reading.

"Can I hang out with you guys all the time"

I'd rather have you not appear for a long time, Tangle, kek.

It was only one background character, and it was an insect iirc.

I'm going by Eyelashes. I see none so I'm saying the Doctor is a guy.

Anywho I enjoyed the issue. Actually I'm going to give my thoughts on Battle for Angel Island itself (Yeah there's one more issue but it seems like it'll be an Epilogue) I really liked this arc. It told it's story really well everyone got a chance to shine, we got good interaction between everyone and everybody was in character.

The Fight scenes especially in this issue were phenomenal (Tails crashing a ship into Master Overlord? *Chef Kiss), The Humor was on point and the stakes felt genuine. This honestly might be my favorite arc of the first year.

I will admit it did bug me that Tracy fell behind so Evan had to step in but these things happen in the Comics biz unfortunately. Deadlines can be a nightmare. But I do think it was handled well in this issue where the first time Evan pops up it's for the Mr. Tinker Interlude.

All-in-all this was a very solid arc and I feel it's deserving of a 4 out of 5.

Amy and Cream don't wear pants...why is this a thing that's happening?

Female characters almost always wear the amount of clothed a human would wear, males generally don't.

It is, in the games anyway. And the times they didn't are over.

Yardley and Stanley's art fit pretty well together.

I could see 2 artists working together in the future to pump out issues faster. Who knows this might help get a Sonic universe book.

The characters being referred to from issue 3 are OCs the artist made over a decade beforehand, she probably snuck them in after the approval process.

The Butterfly maybe?

I've only seen the panel with Jade and Crystal and even then I noticed Jade actually wearing more in the way of pants then she usually does. xD

I'm happy to see them show up since they're better designed then standard background extras.

An overall meh to dull final battle. Master Overlord is weaker than Metal Overlord was, and the switch to this call back form doesn't feel all that much of an improvement to Super Neo Metal Sonic. For me the highlights were Sonic just saying why the loathsome copy stuff is stupid, Knuckles dunking the emerald back on Angel Island, and Tails delivering the biggest hit by driving the ship right into Metal.

Characters felt spot on even though I don't find Metal particularly interesting as anything but a lackey, and the bloated cast basically just made things too spread out for it's own good. You really can cut out so many people and be better off for it.

Pretty lame-ass conclusion, but that's what I've come to expect from this comic in all honesty.

Spoiler

Also holy fuck Dr. Starline's design is horrendous.

Why though? It's not like he's gonna remain in Overlord form forever!

I'd rather neo stick around as a background general.  neo is just more fun than dumpster bin metal. And I only say that cause regular metal has never done anything remotely close to treating s neo has besides punching a squirrel
