Is it a tail wag or an Alfalfa sprung?

I just noticed that. Why don't characters' tails waggle much in the actual games is a mystery to me.

In Sonic, Amy, and Silver's case, it's because their tails are so small and needle-like.

Tails, Vector, and Zavok's tails almost constantly move, though.

Though the idea of sonic liking being under giant cups is funny

What Youtube video is this?

Maybe SEGA sees them more closer to humans than animal? Tail wags or any obvious "animal-like behavior" will get in the way of portraying them more as a person(-ification).

This is probably accurate, to be honest. Despite Sonic's species being a key factor in being chosen for the game mechanics Naka had made, animal traits are few and far between in the games. Might be because Japan generally has a harder time empathising with animal characters from what I've heard (they're most often cute mascots in children's media, with exceptions of course), so making them closer to human would be preferable (especially by the time the Adventure series started rolling in). Besides, it also sets a clear boundary on where the anthropomorphism lies. The more animal behaviours there are, the more someone might wonder just what else is taken from their species.

I don't know if there is a youtube video for it ( it might be everything is on youtube ) but I remember watching something on television that was like, hedgehogs like cups and giant like dome shapped things to get under. 

Like how cats want into boxes and drawers because they like nest spaces

Seems like there's some small world building going on. Park Avenue looks to be a usual park/city town but the Avatar’s Green Hill (I can’t remember for the life of me the name of the Avatar’s Green Hill stage) is developing to be more village like. (At least that's what I think it is)

Neither of these villages were Park Avenue or Green Hill.

Finally got to read the first two comics. Decent start so far. Glad to have a Sonic comic run I could get in on the ground floor of this time.

Spoiler

Both issues do have some nice characterization, from Tails still being concerned for Sonic's safety after his beatdown at the hands of Infinite and his replicas (can't blame him, honestly-- considering the poor kid's just 8 and could do nothing but watch as his best friend and personal idol got beaten to within an inch of his life, that had to have some lingering effect on him) to Amy trying to get Sonic to rejoin the Resistance (which I'm convinced is partially just because she wants him around for obvious reasons), then finally realizing Sonic's a free spirit who does things his way and his way alone and letting him get back to it, even turning down an offer to join him just to continue her duties. Just goes to show the girl has more personality than simply "I LOVE SONIC AND WILL CHASE HIM TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH". As for Sonic himself, I had no problem with him being a team player in the Archie days, but yeah, he's always been a drifter and a maverick, so it's good to see that in the comics.

I do understand the concerns that the plots of these first four issues might get a little samey-- Sonic runs into town to help the citizens, meets up with a friend or two, teams up with them to deal with Badnik threats, then leaves on his own to keep doing his own thing while the friends stay behind-- but we've gotta start somewhere. Something's telling me that things will pick up once the mystery plotter organizing Eggman's minions shows their face...

Can't wait to read the next two issues so I can see what the newbies'll be like! And, of course, as many issues as I can afterward...

Issue 2 was good. I can see why they have opted to do the first four weekly as the first two issues were very similar. Nothing wrong with laying a foundation though and this will give the series a steady platform to launch from. 

I think it’s either Metal Sonic or it is actually EggMan controlling the army. But we shall see. Bring on #3 for some Rough and Tumble.

Second Mystery Villain Theory! It is Metal Sonic but he's back to being Neo-Metal Sonic and that will make the first Year or so about Eggman trying to regain control from him.

Not all animals waggle their tails, and when they do, it is for different reasons. Most known one is that canines do it as joy/anxiety, while felines do it as a symbol of annoyance.

Anyway, I don't really care about animal behavior when it comes to Sonic. There is a lot of fanfiction that does it and it is weird.

I finally read the second issue, not bad at all, but i do have some complaints, but i'll wait until i read the first four issues, since they are releasing 4 issues in one month, i feel that it's better to criticize the 4 issues as a whole, since things may change.

All this chat reminds me of the time I asked if Rouge slept upside down. I’ve also gone into detail about animal behaviors of the characters. I sometimes find its use charming.

When are the Issue 3 previews gonna show up?

Biggest mystery than the secret villain.

Anyway, I don't think Sticks needs to be deeper, just... better used I guess? Boom used her in most episodes just to say her one liners, not to show her personality, which I believe is really fresh and energetic.

If Sticks ever appears, we need her to be more deep than in Sonic Boom.

The characters in IDW that we saw till now are deep and have nuances.

Agreed. I remember asking how to give sticks more depth with a status update, and I heard some exciting ideas.

Actually she was good in the Modern Universe

Agree to Disagree then, I don't feel that way. Would rather she stick with Boom if it continues on, rather than cling onto the Modern Universe.
