Gee, tomrrow's gonna be a big day. Still seeing a bit too much white to believe it's her, but it'll be interesting either way.

And is she holding a Burst Wispon?

Looks like some fur sticking out. Might be a tail?

A SQUIRREL TAIL?

Sorry. I do care about whether it's new or isn't, I'm just probably going to be happy regardless of the result. I'm not trying to get a rise out of anyone, I literally only ask the question because the leadup to this thing has jerked us back and forth to the point where it's honestly hilarious to me.

Please don’t be Sally.

I mean I love the FFs to return, but I also love ther nu252 designs and would loathe if all this wait led to some ugly STC redesign people won’t even recognize, why just her anyway? This isn’t the Mecha Sally era where we worry what to happens to her, this is a new comic where are looking foward to new characters.

Dunno why the hell she’d be gray all of a sudden anyway.

Is that its tail on the left? Sally's tail isn't that big, so it can't be her.

Pretty sure it's a wispon, You can clearly see that the direction Sally(?) is in is opposite to Sonic, in which case her tail would be in the same direction her face is in and pretty massive at that. 

Sally or not, assuming it's a resistance member, it makes sense for that to be the Burst wispon, it was the one the avatar starts out with so it'd make sense for a standard issue weapon for resistance members. 

But yeah, it does look like Post reboot Sally, and upon inspection of the hand, it's clearly a gloved hand with the part we all originally believed to be a yellow piece of fur appears to be shading. And given that the mystery character is pointing opposite to Sonic, it's possible that small tuff above the hand is the tail, which IIRC - Sally also had a short tail.

I’d rather take a spiritual successor instead.

If nothing in the old series happened in this one, isn't it basically a spiritual successor anyway?

Xenoblade X made me really confused as to what does and does not constitute spiritual successors so I legit can't say for sure.

 

Also, I don't think that's a wispon she's got there. It looks like it has hair on it, seems to have a hole in it (peeking into the red background) and doesn't resemble any of the wispons we've seen.

I don't think Forces is a bad thing. It just so happen to be the newest game in the series (and unfortunately shares many things with the Archie Sonic in formula and atmosphere). It doesn't mean IDW will be "Sonic & the FF" formula for the entirety, or guarantee the comic will be "strictly game-canon". Archie Sonic had adaptations of games that blended in with their universe, and some of them were well received (memorable is Champions). I mean, there are people who disliked the Unleashed game but liked the adaption. Pre-Archie cancellation, I was actually looking forward to a Lost World adaptation because I didn't like the game story much and wondered how Ian would handle it.

I think this still counts as starting “fresh new", as in “not related to any of the previous adaptations”. I’m surprised people thought there would be zero connection to the game whatsoever. I'm guessing IDW will be more game world based than Archie, but I’m sure they’ll be expanding and adding on to it like Archie did.

If the writers are creative (many members from Archie, plus some fan favorites) and the rules aren’t stupid (Most of what I heard was reasonable & I’m sure they said Sega will be more loose/flexible with their rules), there shouldn’t be much concern.

Yeah, this'll be the greatest troll ever if it turns out not to be Sally.

Is it just me or the mobian looks fluffy? Like, VERY fluffy.

If it's Sally, it looks like a hybrid of the modern Chipmunk version and StC Squirrel version. Though I'm not sure if that's how you draw a squirrel tail.

Is that so?

It's OBVIOUSLY Spyro. It isn't anyone else, no siree, it is most certainly Spyro of all people. No one but the original Spyro from the PS1 era.

 

that'll work

I like that Amy will star in Issue 2 rather than Knuckles since I see her get sidelined in favor of him often. 

Some would argue it was the other way around.

I really like how the sheep girl in the cover looks.

I love the teaser thing they pulled in hindsight.

5 days before release; Fans: It's Sally!

3 days before release; Fans: It's Antoine!

Now; 

Hey, I'm down for it. Sheep are my second-favourite animal. 

Ch'yeah. :lol:

Also, is it bad that listening to this song while continuing to read makes me think of the minus8 version?

AND THERE'S A JACKAL BEHIND THE NOT ECHIDNA KID

I'm pretty upset about this too, but more because I wanted to see an actual Forces adaptation and not the aftermath (and I also knew everyone was going to react negatively). I guess it'll be fine since I'm sure they will do original storylines after this. I hope at least the red wolf avatar will show up then and become an official character of his own as the true main Avatar. Please at least do that Ian. Maybe he really is the mystery character they're teasing. 

That would be cool.

Granted, the game ended on the note that Buddy off to his own adventure in the other direction, but whatever.

There is a silver lining to this, however: It could (and I'm hoping) that this is an alternate continuity from the games, like how the Archie Comics were.

Well, it kinda has to be.
