Why is that a mandate? Out of all the things that can be a mandate, that? XD

Several reasons.

For one, they can't be arsed designing feet for the Sonic franchise (which is why we have blob feet).

Two, they'd rather the characters to be known by their shoes instead.

Three, it's fetish fuel. Need I say more?

Wouldn't be the first time in comics but the less I remember the blobs the better XD

True those shoe designs are iconic.

Y...yeah....th...that was my guess why......:wacko:

That's nice. Now how about you try addressing actual fucking criticisms in this thread instead of reposting something trying to invalidate any critique because "lol Sonic fans are never happy"

This book shouldn't get a free pass because it's a first issue. If you liked it, fine, but I'm not going to allow this crap to drag down this thread.

This was my tweet, wasn’t meant to bring any thread down. Didn’t expect such a reaction from posting my thoughts. Sorry if it became a headache for ya. 

That said, don’t think I was invalidating ANY criticism brought to the book outside of those who are already hating it who A) Haven’t read it themselves or B ) for not being immediately “Archie Sonic 2.0”.

I'm not asking for "a masterwork of continuity and drama", I'm asking for, like...any kind of hook. The first issue should be working its ass off to draw the reader into it, but I really don't feel anything from this. The action feels flaccid, the tension is minimal, there's a weird amount of continuity/expected knowledge for a first issue (and it feels less like setup to be elaborated on later and more like "I sure hope you played Sonic Forces before reading this!"), and neither the mystery antagonist nor the mystery of the antagonist are compelling yet. It feels like it's exclusively for people who are already Sonic fans and are starved for Sonic content, and I'm not sold on its appeal or value outside of that.

Did we have a discussion last night? Just wanted to see if it was ya.

Accessories are okay, I imagine. Just so long as you don't attempt to clothe the males in any way, or change the clothing of the females. Or have the characters permanently wear their accessories.

If we could Tails in an adorable bowtie for one issue in the Archie post-reboot, we can have Knuckles's sweet hat for one issue.

And before anyone quotes that Ryan guy (who is he?) again, see Mega Drive 1 and even Fleetway issue 1 for an example of how to make a good issue 1 story.

Hi! That me!

Story structure is clearly going to be different from your examples since it was planned from the get-go as a weekly series. So I see it as a giant size #1 instead of a monthly comic structure. Thats all.  Plus I feel i saw some complaints about how Mega Drive #1 ended actually having a hook. So its going to be different person to person.

I guess I was being hasty in quoting Ryan Fair.

No worries. It literally never has happened till now. I was planning on getting involved with this board again after the issue released; guess this was a good start lol.

It wasn't aimed at you, specifically. I don't have a problem if you were avoiding spoilers (though, if I may, the tweet itself kinda seemed like it was blowing up people's criticisms into something they weren't--which is something I really don't want to see happen in this thread), but I took issue with someone just copy pasting someone else's thoughts which seemed more like an attempt to just shut up any dissent. I actually recognized the name and icon as belonging to a member on these boards too and I just couldn't place it lol

It's not a weekly series, just the first 4 issues are.

Yeah I know. The first 4 issue story structure is planned as a weekly series though. I do think it was a bad move to release it two weeks early. It throws that planned structure out the window.
