What was the feather for again?

They were to show they were honorary members of the Wolf Pack. I...might reread a little too frequently.

It was introduced in Sonic the Fighters as a replacement for Amy's punch. It was always supposed to have combat utility.

No, I mean it's a literally Japanese toy. Thats why it squeaks.

If you like it, that's cool. I never thought those were good versions of the characters, way too sad all the time, and too indulgent in weird what if fan stuff for my liking. Its not for me, its for the person writing it, and that's fine. I just always found it wack and mildly embarrassing

Tails and a few of the other freedom fighters were inducted as honorary wolfpack members at the beginning of this mini-arc. It gives them free run of the area essentially.

I love how Amy's hammer is useless but I'm supposed to believe this

640?cb=20120711125444

is an effective attack. Amy was at least able to stop Chaos 0.

1) When has Amy ever fought Chaos 0? I don't recall in SA1, Battles, Forces

2) I could swore that 'furry animal can damage metallic robots" was first thing you need to accept when you join Sonic fandom.

 

Also, I don't like to think every time Chaos shows up as Chaos 0 he must be weak. It's just kinda silly.

He's a Shape Shifter. What we call "Chaos 2/4/ 6/Perfect" are just forms he choose for the battle, when his true form is puddle on the ground. It's perfectly reasonable to think that fully powered Chaos could take form of Chaos 0 for convenience sake (read: because that's his most iconic form). How else he would be any threat in Sonic Battle or Archie? And it's not like he needs Chaos Emeralds to be strong,  he just needs to feed on them and later he can spit them out. Before SA1 he was prisoner in ME, post that game he's invited guest, inhabiting world's strongest battery.

This. I mean there is such a thing as separating story from Gameplay y'know. Being the first boss doesn't necessarily mean Chaos 0 is Chaos' weakest form.

Being the first boss doesn't, but being Chaos 0, Chaos with no emeralds, does. But it being his weakest form doesn't necessarily mean that he is weak in that form.

He's doing a whipping motion, which requires him to bend/twist part of his body and make his normally bushy tails slicker.

I feel like the tails would be even less effective if you factor in that they're probably just like rat tails under the fur.

So doing that caused his torso to basically double in length? lol

Sure, let's go with that.

It's a dynamic comic pose, dude. Just Frozen.

If by less effective, you mean more, than yeah. Spines can bust throughout robots, spurs can break rocks, tails can whip back n'  forth.

Is there no solicit for it?

Got your back.

"The annual — which weighs in at 48 pages — features a sprawling crew of creators, including four newcomers to the property. James Kochalka (Johnny Boo), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), Jack Lawrence (Transformers: Lost Light), and Gigi Dutrieux will have their first Sonic work featured in the annual. Ian Flynn, Evan Stanley, Caleb Goellner, Jonathan Gray, Jennifer Hernandez, and Diana Skelly will return from other Sonic issues to contribute to the massive book.

Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019 will feature three covers, including one from Sonic franchise icon Yuji Uekawa, best known as the visionary behind the "modern" look of Sonic."

Honestly it is no surprise to see a Sonic Annual being released for next year. IDW does a lot of them anyway

*pic*

Interesting that the comic characters are at the forefront compared to Tails, Amy, and Knuckles.

It's great to see Uekawa love the new characters!!

“I am really happy to draw IDW’s original characters altogether with Sonic and his friends, as I had never imagined that I would draw these characters as official artwork,” Uekawa said in a release. “As with many IDW Sonic series fans, I personally love Tangle and Whisper, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their further adventures with Sonic, as well as seeing original characters in future issues!”

What exactly is this? A collection of small new stories? It seems a new thing. at first I thought it would be a reprint but it seems something different.

Annuals are special double-sized issues that some books get. Typically released after, well, a year. They might do one each year but maybe not, kinda goes either way in my experience.

...Holy shit I just noticed Diana Skelly was among the artists?? That's awesome, I was really hoping she'd come back.

Seeing Uekawa give his blessing to the comic through a cover featuring comic-exclusive characters in his style is amazeballs, Diana Skelly being back makes me SOOOOOOO freaking happy, and I'm very pumped to see what kind of stuff we'll get out of this. (Hopefully they'll release a new trade or something that contains the side books like the TSR tie-in and this.)

Also, more details on the individual stories courtesy of the Facebook group:

Hey Squad! 

We got some big (like 40 pages big!) news to share! March 2019, the Sonic the Hedgehog Annual 2019 is coming to all fine comic shops near you! 

We really wanted to give you all something special (why we saved the announcement for the holidays!) that celebrates your love and ours for Sonic! The Annual's going to have 5 stories by some beloved Sonic creators and some awesome comic book creators who're working on Sonic for the first time! We have a story about the Sonic Fan Club! We have a story about Tangle and Whisper and a brand-new character! We have a story about Rouge! We have a Sonic & Tails adventure! And a touching story featuring Blaze and Silver! 

This one's got a lot of heart and some of the most amazing art! 

VERY curious to see that Blaze and Silver story, given their confusing past connections in the franchise. Also another new guy!
