IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

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

Good question. I think Shadow is now just another rival for Sonic who wants to beat him and show the others that he is better than Sonic in everything. Kinda like with Gary in Pokémon or King Dedede in Kirby.

Maria is literally referenced in Team Sonic Racing, the latest game coming to market. They’re not non-canon, they’re just not relevant as of right now.

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

  Reveal hidden contents

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

 

 

Oh, another girl, huh?

Well, at least she's a unique color.

She sorta reminds me of Saffron

Spoiler

W...--Yeah, that's Safron! Albiet, with Breezie's dress.

I wonder if Ms. Baker had input on this design?

So i checked out Issue 15 and so far it is pretty neat. Review in spoiler cause there is a lot of spoilers I need to bring up.

Spoiler

So first things first let's start with the most obvious thing Rough and Tumble got infected which yeah you could guess that happens, however it did take a while as Eggman kinda tricked them into infecting themselves rather than just straight up infecting them. What is interesting is that the Zombot's as they are called now are indestructible and gooey rather than being traditional metal, i actually like that a lot, it is interesting for fights as they have to make the characters think rather than anything else. Then there is the ending where Sonic get's infected with the zombot disease which is kinda obvious that was going to happen in the fight. There isn't much on Eggman and Doctor Starline but they were fun while they were there. 

 I rate this an 8/10 can't wait to see how this goes.

Unless it's a twist villain, I really doubt it. But yes, since we are getting expies for Finitevus and Saffron. Where is my Lien-Da expy? I just want a badass and villainous female fighter. There were various interesting villainesses in the reboot but we barely saw them sadly.

Kudos to Ian for creating a new type of robot slave that's not the same as in Archie/SATAM.

I'd hate to see what would have happen once Eggman gets Zombots that were originally stronger before being infected.

...I wonder if Zombots can fuse?

Holy shit, I accidentally clicked on Sonictrainer's spoiler for a second--what the hell is happening there?

That's what I would've been hoping for too.

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

Hey there! 

I went ahead and fixed it for you but for future reference you can hide parts of your post behind the spoiler tag by either:

1. Highlighting the part of your post you want to hide and clicking the eye icon on the post editor (if you're on mobile, turn your phone to landscape mode and it should pop up).

2. You can put the tags manually around what you wrote with

 [spoiler] [/spoiler]

I just realized the new character has a simliar color scheme as Zavok.

Yea, this series was kind of freaky.

Think they could have went a hit more with body horror tho.

Uh, I didn't that part, but what I did see was a weirdly bleak color issue, even for the character. Kinda reminds [appropriate?] of Issue 3 or better yet, the upcoming cover with the Chaotix.

Kind of underwhelmed, yet again.

Spoiler

The zombots being squishy liquid metal allows for some half decent body horror but otherwise the sequence feels kind of limp. The skunks barely have time to react to the situation before they're brainless, Sonic getting infected just because he accidentally wiped some gunk on his face is a bit lame, and neither he nor Amy have reacted with the kind of shock I'd expect about a zombie-like infection. I'm not coming into this expecting there to be long-term consequences, we all know Sonic's going to get cured eventually and the skunks most likely will too (or at least get their minds back and generally be ok), so if the characters aren't selling the stakes I don't really feel the tension. Maybe it'll pick up in the next issue as the infection really starts to set in on Sonic, but I'm just not feeling it now.

Also if the skunks manage to crawl out of that hole and be relevant again in this arc they're gonna be pretty boring without their Team Rocket-esque personalities.

If that happens, then the Aquamarine vibes I stated would be an interesting one to see in development imo.

I'm tired of good girls. Well I'd like her to be a theist where she looks sweet and innocent but is very sadistic

Well, a religious character would certainly be unique.
