IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

It's awesome to see Gray doing serious content again (as opposed to the Off Panel gags he became known for). Not many people associate him with action packed content, but Return to Angel Island stands out as a great example of what he can do and this cover definitely channels that. I also love that POV shot for Wells' cover.

What do you guys think about the Master Overlord transformation? Do you think we'll see Super Sonic fighting him next?

Spoiler

 

I actually enjoyed it - it seemed a logical transition for Neo to make (what with the Overlord being the transformation most associated with this version of Metal Sonic) and was done in a suitably impressive manner - I loved how they had him suddenly looking up from his throne with the Overlord face. I was also pleased that his Master Overlord form wasn't just an exact carbon-copy of Metal Overlord and that the set-up for facing him will be extremely different from that of Heroes (no Chaos Emeralds and Master Overlord has the Master Emerald's power at his disposal).

As fun as Super Neo Metal Sonic was, I do worry he would have out-stayed his welcome if he'd been around too long - since Sonic and Knuckles can't realistically do much to him, there's only so much Super Neo smashing Sonic and Knuckles to bits that can be done before the fight scenes become repetitive. I wouldn't mind seeing a Super Sonic vs Super Metal Sonic fight at some point in the future in different circumstances though.

I was a bit confused however about Neo Metal Sonic's dialogue about Eggman upgrading him and removing the limitation that they were counting on? What was that supposed to refer to? I get that he needs Shadow's Chaos Control to become Overlord (along with Chaos's abilities from the Master Emerald and its raw energy), but what limitation did his upgrade overcome?

Not sure if it was mentioned, but a Volume 2 Graphic Novel has been announced and is cited for release on January 22nd 2019. 

It's called The Fate of Dr. Eggman, and compiles Issues 5-8.

Does it have a fancy cover?

IDW Sonic issue 10 wasn't exciting Amy didn't do much and the fighting in it was poor. Ian Flynn said he's writing this book for everyone but changed Amy to love Sonic less so I believe what he said was a lie.

If I were Amy, I'd be more concerned about the fact that I'm standing on an island that is falling out of the sky at an unknown altitude and speed and I don't know if the impact will injure myself or cause a massive tsunami that could destroy any a nearby ships, towns, or cities.

Not to mention the evil knockoff of my current love interest just turned into a chimera dragon again.

Do you just read this book to see Amy do stuff, because there's more stuff going on than whatever Amy is doing...

Well, I'm a fan of Amy so I want to see her do stuff and why can't there be a Sonic comic that stars Amy for once.

Yeah, not like we had a issue where Amy was the main star or anything, teaming up with Sonic and exploring her character in more ways than just admiration for Sonic, or being generic leader. Not like an issue out there exists that shows more to her and her ways of playing off Sonic or anything.

But yes, how dare Amy not be the star in an arc resolving around Angel Island, and the Master Emerald. I mean, Amy out of all the cast just makes the most logical sense to be the main star of the arc, for we all know there isn't anyone else with a stronger connection to Angel Island and the Master Emerald.

Hmm Amy is the star of issue 2 so that's 1/10 and counting in Boom she starred in 6 / 104 episodes I hope the IDW comics star her in more issues than that show and not just talk about how mature or how she doesn't need Sonic in each issue but some say if she admires him a lot she would only be doing one thing....

Because the title of the series is "Sonic the Hedgehog" not "Sonic & Amy".

 

What is with some of you being so obsessed with your favorite characters that you get some type of complex whenever they aren't onscreen. The world isn't going to end because Shadow/Amy/whoever the fuck isn't onscreen doing stuff every time.

I dunno....speaking from Tails crew, literally anything is better than the games.....so we don't really got as much to be upset about? Issue 1 alone did better than the last 10 years or so.....excluding Archie.

This is really a Knuckles thing more than anything else. Ain't he like Flynn's favourite? Hell in my own opinion the roster is waaaay too stacked for this. I'd suggest removing most of the characters and have them remain as protectors of the villages they were at so we could develop others better. There's too many which really shows with the lack of most of the characters having barely a motivation/driving force that isn't generic heroics.

because we've spent the better part of a decade with games where they didn't do shit

Because they want to see the character they like

And the character they like doesn't show up in the games often enough for them to be satisfied

So it isn't about the world ending, its about the content sonic is putting out

I like Knuckles, you don't see me throwing a bitch fit any time he's not onscreen for an extended period of time.

 

There's a clear difference between being dismayed that your favorite character hasn't been seen much lately, and complaining that they are not onscreen doing anything regardless of the context. There's more to storytelling than simply seeing your favorite character onscreen and if that's honestly your primary and only reason for sticking with the series, then you're honestly better off just sticking with fan content because it's ludicrous to believe that any moment that's not spent on your favorite character is "wasted". Not only is that supremely shortsighted, it's incredibly reductive to what the series is about.

I agree with sentiment

All i'm saying is, that's why. I would actually go a bit further than you though.

Sorry to be harsh, he in fact wrote the comic for everyone, not to appeal to some obsessed Amy fan who wants her to be an angry fangirl.

Amy did plenty of stuff in issue 2 and 9, and she says "I love you" to Sonic in issue 2. That seems enough to make Amy fans happy.

I love Sticks, and she is nowhere to be seen here, am I angry at Ian Flynn? Nope, I love this comic book, and Sticks isn't the only thing I care about.

He said on Bumblekast she can appear only if SEGA agrees. I wish we can see her someday fit in the modern continuity.

To Sonic Boom 2's credit, that's seems to be what half of the fans read these books for--to see their favorites do stuff and be them.

Yeah, in terms of the plot thus far, only Sonic, Knuckles, Blaze, and Shadow were actually needed to be in any prominence thus far.

Like, Tails, Amy, and to an extent Silver and Rouge make sense as tagalongs on the side, but Team Chaotix has had little to do in general.

Just makes Cream&Cheese, Gemerl, and Omega's omissions feel even more understandable.

Well, that issue did end with a variation of Metal Overlord, so....
