I already brought it up a few posts back.

What I want to know is what is it doing being sold in a UK retailer like FP?

Ahhhh I didn’t see that. Forbidden Planet have been importing stuff like this for years and I’m glad they do.

Even though we don't have the online number, I guess we can use those numbers to compare with post-reboot sales - which is a time where online stuff was already a thing, so it serves as a "thermometer".

So, remember that bundle that was sold at the SEGA shop, we now know how that T-Shirt looks like

(and i regret not being able to buy it...)

Considering Tangle has MERCHANDISE, I wouldn’t be too surprised if a game appearance is soon enough.

Well there is that Sonic racing game coming out. That would be a good way to introduce her, with maybe a little info or biography box you sometimes get in games, which explains she is from the comic. If it also means anything, I believe the last Sonic and Mario Olympics title had Sticks in it, although maybe not a great comparison when Boom was given a far bigger initial push.

I don't know, I don't think it would hurt for Sega to try and give the comic a new push, maybe try and get some brand new readers in with the comic only a few issues in. I have no idea how likely it is or how much they care, but I don't think it would hurt.

Okay this lack of Shadow + Team Dark official fan promotion in this series is pissing me off, same for lack of Silver and sometimes Blaze. Why won't Sega see that the modern character have as much of a big fan following than the Classic 4 and Eggman? I don't understand why Shadow is held back recently being as popular as he is, he should be on Tails/Knuckles level by now as a default focus in being a main character in official material outside of Sonic and Eggman. revealing him last out of suspense is bad for business, he like Vegeta for christs sake, he makes the money much more than the other side cast does.

Shadows appearing in issue 6 actually.

Makes it worse since usually Shadow showing up in anything is treated as big deal that should carry on for more than just one issue. Unless 6 has more pages, I feel they won't do him or Rouge justice.

...Who the fuck is "Amash"?

Jim Amash. He's an inker. He worked on the Archie Sonic comics too I think.

Jim Amash was one of the more prolific inkers on the Archie book from around 2006 onward (probably a bit earlier than that). At least up until Terry Austin took over the main book from #200-onward. Amash remained on Universe for most of its run.

I personally love how he inks Tracy's work and I couldn't be happier they're working together again.

 

 

Also, who did this cover? ....did they get Spaz?

Personally I think that a good character should not have trouble with displaying what they are about in as little as a single issue, just like how a good actor would be able to effectively convey their acting in just a few shots.

Secondly, I don't think that a character being popular should warrant any kind of special treatment. Either they can stand on their very own merit or they can not. Frankly, I detest the idea of other characters with better potential to be ignored because of popularity based favoritisms.

My current beef is that we haven't seen any covers with the characters of 5/6 on them because of Eggman dominating the promotion. I can imagine a #6 variant eventually being revealed showing at least Shadow because he's a featured part of the conflict and the issue is like 6/7 weeks away. Can't guarantee the same for the Chaotix debut.
