Happy to see Stanley doing the art for #9. Tracy is great, and he seems to be better than before, but I've never been particularly crazy about the way he draws Blaze... and others, for that matter. Stanley on the other hand, does a phenomenal job on Blaze, and I really enjoy her art a lot in general. 

Her Sonic needs a little work, though.

 

Also, who usually does colors for her?

Is there one in the Sonic comics (archie) so I can have an idea?

Probably. It'd require me to track down work from each of them, which would also vary a bit based on the artist they're working with.

I just feel her work's coloring can be a little too faded looking at times.

It's still a lot better than 3's coloring.

See, I remember's colors(and to some extent, the arwork) being fine--it was in decent marker-esque shades that look vibrant enough--, but where and when they were looked a little confused at times.

I'd rather the comics include some mild cursing where appropriate (i.e. When the damn writers aren't going out of their damn way to force damn swear words into every damn sentence like in Shadow the damn Hedgehog) than bend over backwards to avoid it at all costs. People swear, it's a fact of life. Trying to use euphemisms or write around an offending word (especially a mild one) can come off as awkward when a succinct , "Oh crap!" would get the job done better.

I generally liked it when writers try and get creative with swears. As long as its not too forced, it adds a unique charm to the character.

We all know what he wanted to say there. Cleaver censor dodging gets us around the obvious and keeps him in character. No controversy, no fuss, no muss.

What controversy. There is not any controversy unless someone is literally 10 years old and their mom just popped their hand for saying heck or crap. IDW is NOT archie and this is noting new. They have much more freedom in language in their books. The stories are also more mature to a extent. I mean were on issue what 8 and we are having stories about the end of a war and people rebuilding their lifes and cities while still fighting and "some" are upset someone used the word CRAP. Hell this is just......just wow. Hell even damn has its use. say a bomb is about to go off and suddenly say neo tells sonic and oh while your dealing with that im about to burn down this village while flooding this city filled with children. A damn said under the breath would be fine.

You realise that's a scenario that could happen right? The audience is 6-12 year old American children*, there's going to be some like that in there. I don't care at all about the usage myself, but hey. 

*Not that it's exclusively American parents that may take offence, not with the mother and child exchange I saw in person just a few days ago.

I didn't know "Oh my stars and garters" was profanity...

Its not. But its clearly used in place of "OMFG" which is a swear.

The fact that someone came in here and brought it up. and some time later we are still talking about it says otherwise.

Personally, I could care less about the language. Crap is harmless to me and I wouldn't bat an eye if the writer went a little bit farther down that road. But at the same time, we all know what its a stand in for, so if someone took offense to it, I'd understand that too.

 

Hence, why I like to go the creative route. ^^

Regular Show regularly said Crap in the first couple seasons. Adventure Time and Steven Universe both have used Sucks. Most Marvel movies are aimed at Kids despite the PG-13 ratings.

I remember the Japanese version of Sonic X had Sonic saying "shit" when trying to break Cream out of Area 51.

 

Not to mention there were quite a few innuendos in all the animated series over the years: 

Bunnie's "one-eyed monster" story (told to Tails) in SatAM. 

The infamous "Pingas" line from Adventures. 

Quite a few in Boom. "Polishing my schnauzer", etc. 

 

They got away with quite a lot.

Guys... we gotta.. we gotta move on from this...

Let's just all agree that Tails dropping the F-bomb would be completely okay.

Yeah, what's the point of staying 10 pages on a poop synonym word instead of talking about the actual story?

Whisper's introduction, her grudge against Eggman, Neo Metal Sonic's invasion, the upcomming resistance reunion...

Yes there is.

That's more like, the hinting of stories than a story
