Hey, don't knock Jet's obligatory rival role in Mario and Sonic 2020.

I doubt he can even rely on that anymore. I think Ubisoft has the Olympic Video Games pedigree now. At least, I think that's what happened since Mario and Sonic skipped the Winter 2018 Olympics while Ubisoft got to make this:

No more Jet the Hawk. Here comes Iconic Generic Ubisoft man.

If the games that come out during their current vision mostly take place on Animal Planet, maybe there's no place for them anymore.

Yeah. But I also think that the concept of "Animal Planet" is dumb too so... it really can't be helped as far as my opinion goes. 

We can't we co-exist with the animals? Eggman found a way... sort of.

You know... he wants to enslave them but... at least he's trying.

Sega has the game rights for the Tokyo 2020 olympics, they just got beat out by ubisoft that one time. Can't wait for Infinite on ice.

Just read the latest issue...

  Reveal hidden contents

Well, that got disturbing. Probably even more so than the previous issue in regards to the Metal Virus and the Zombots.

How was the issue itself?

Also, Imma just drop this here...

Update on the Annual from the Facebook group: delay is confirmed and the issue is currently off to the printers for an on-sale date of May 1st. The RI cover by Nathalie Fourdraine was also revealed:

(The B cover is being held back because it features someone we haven't met yet, so yeah, Whisper and Tangle will be sharing the spotlight with a completely fresh character in their story!)

This looks nice

I had a feeling that was coming but God dammit this is Universe 9 all over again. Whyyyy, my precious boyyyyyys.

The question is: does Ian have the stones to make this a permanent thing since undoubtedly we'll see a lot more victims, or will there be some way to reverse it?

More importantly: will the arc end with Sonic infecting Eggman so as to force him to reveal/engineer a cure?

When Eggman decided to Thanos Snap, he better have accounted for the fact he can count in the losing 50%.

Spoiler

They'll be fine. Like Universe 9 it'll be reversed eventually. The heroes will cure them along with the others who are infected, and they'll be back to their ruffian selves again. If not that they may regain sentience and keep these abilities....but I bank more on returning to normal eventually.

Well don't really need to spoil that Sonic is infected since they already told us that. I do like this twist, but it really should not have been spoiled by the release previews. Would have made for a fantastic cliff hanger if we didn't know about it already. Though I really dislike we needed Rough and Tumble to explain a joke....shoulda just left it at one of them pointing out that didn't rhyme, and the other brother telling him to shut it and waste the hedgehogs.

Spoiler

Now if only we could ditch the pair formula. Amy was with Sonic here and he didn't leave her, but the next issue suggests it's Sonic, Tails, and Tangle. Then after that the Chaotix. I think Sonic Universe did it fine with like 4 issues to have a group thing before moving on.

Overall an eventful end to a chapter that was mostly typical.

They didn't explain it, it was just looker...stretched a bit.

We didn't need an explanation of what didn't rhyme, we already knew. Wasn't Sonic Colors bad, but still...ick I'd rather delete that panel.

People say that a lot, but stuff like that isn't always for the reader/viewer's sake.

Sometimes it just makes dialogue flow better, even when read.

Keeping it in is a necessary part of humanistic speech.

Spoilers:

The art makes it look like Sonic it's just dirty rather than infected,wish they showed those little metal veins like in previous issues. And yeah,they should have kept the fact that he was gonna get infected a surprise: in the Unleashed adaptation it made sense since we knew it was gonna happen because it was adapting a game everyone knows,but this was a new concept and the kinda ruined the surprise

 

 

P.S.: can somebody please  tell how to hide the spoilers?

I get more padding than flow. If anything it momentarily pauses things unnecessarily.

IDW previews reveal too much. Wait, scratch that... IDW in GENERAL likes to reveal too much.

 

Dumb question: Why do you people even read those previews?

In your impatience to get something that you'll read full anyway you just hinder your own experience and often mine.

They are not a team, Shadow works with them because they are of use.

So that new character they stated for the Annual's B cover

I don't know why, but I keep having that Aquamarine vibe for her design look.

 

She sorta reminds me of Saffron

I think the reason, why they have gotten rid of G.U.N. is because, that this is a new incarnation of Sonic's world, where humans do not longer exist. Since Sonic Colors it seems that Sega wants to focus more on the old concept, where you only have animals, robots and supernatural beings that inhabit Sonic's world with Dr. Eggman been the only human. This is the reason why GUN and Maria are no longer canon to the series.

But if that's the case what's Shadow's character anymore? It's like saying that Krypton never existed in the Superman canon, or that Uncle Ben never died in Spiderman, or that Bruce Wayne's parents never died! They can't just erase the whole motivation of a character
