Gemerl? Issue 17 says it's Sonic vs Gemerl on the next issue. I'm guessing robots CAN get infected. 

Anyway, I'm sorry for Charmy, but it was an heroic act, so it felt even more sad tbh. I was expecting Espio as a zombot.

 

The description says A powerful ally,which means only one of them. Maybe the one that was spared will have to help Sonic and Omega in some other way

Cover for Tangle and Whisper #2! That looks like an Octopus or a squid.

A thought just occurred to me.

Imagine if there was a strain of the Metal Virus in later issues.
That not only turns you metal, but somehow allows you to keep your consciousness.
Like, your sentience and shit.
Maybe a villain can use it, so that not only do they keep their intelligence, but they are also gain the benefits of being a Zombot.
Like, imagine if Starline used that shit.
A teleportating, virtually invincible scientist that can spread the disease even further.
It'd give him something that he could actually do.

 

That's been my thought since the Bumblekast foreshadowed what happened to the Skunk Bros.

I figured it was Shadow, but I thought he was immune to disease. Wasn't that Geralds point in creating him in the first place? And couldn't he run it off like Sonic can?

 

.

Spoiler

Virus's are technically a different matter.

Sonic and Omega interacting is interesting, given they've almost never done that in any medium up to this point. Shame it's going to focus on their relationships with Shadow likely, but still something new.

 

I said it before, but it's worth reinforcing what a missed opportunity that was back in his introduction

One of these three outcomes for this issue needs to happen:
 

  Hide contents

 

1) Very possible: The whole family is seemingly saved and hug while Sonic moves on to save more people, but the ending shows that one of the two rabbits is still infected.

2) Likely: Vanilla stays behind to save the rest of the family.

3) Most daring but least possible: Cream stays behind to save the rest of the family.

Of course, the most obvious and play-it-safe fourth outcome would be that the entire family is saved. No one is infected. More of a cop out, but the most expected.

Then again, it would be interesting if the family decides to stay infected together than be driven apart by this epidemic/pandemic.

As cruel as it is, this has to be a Lose-Lose situation until the inevitable cure plot happens.

 

 

Conisdering this previous issue, I'm definitely gonna stick with 2.

There is no way Cream is going to get Robozombofied there has to be a mandate against that somewhere 😂

Well, considering SEGA apparently added to this arc...

A shapeshifting octopus, eh? I wonder where this is going....

It also looks like another female, though.

Barring some unforseen side effects, I think robots are safe since it's a biological virus.

As for Gemerl

Spoiler

it's possible that he'll get into a fight with Sonic trying to keep him away from the Rabbit Family.

Shadow gets the worf effect way to often, hes basically furry vegeta.

Does he?

Eh, either way, that's what you'll sometimes get for being considered strong and especially for being broken.

How many issues is Tangle & Whisper? I don’t recall if it was said anywhere.

Comicslist puts it at 4 issues.

Matt did release the raw cover and I felt like I wanted to do it. Now to wait for T&W's raw cover to be uploaded so I can do with that

Maybe also a version that works closer to old-school roboticization, too?

Why did they go and make Amy a desk lady sorting papers instead of her fawning over Sonic like she normally does now Amy feels so unoriginal and out of character.

To give her something to do when offscreen.

Amy being mature and not being constantly "IGOTTAFUCKSONICIGOTTAFUCKSONIC" is character development because most people found her old Personality awful and her hateable as a result.

Obviously her personality being "bad" was unrelated to her Obsessive crush on Sonic.

Depends on who you ask. In a lot of interpretations, her obsessive crush on Sonic WAS her personality, which was part of the problem.

The important take away here is than in any relevant media they were separate enough.

Her worst episodes in Sonic X, Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Battle...just don't make the scale tilt enough.

If they were separate then sure, its all fine and dandy. But, just like in the games and media you mentioned above, they are not always separate, which makes it an obvious issue that needs to be addressed. If your in the state of mind to write Amy as a solid, interesting and dynamic character, her motivations regarding Sonic is the first, second and last thing that you will have to address. Its the albatross overhead. Its the elephant in the room. Its the 500 lb gorilla giving you a side eye from the corner. If you think otherwise then you are kidding yourself.

And while your on the idea of scale tilting, go ahead and throw Chronicles, Free Riders, Colors DS, Archie's early run and god knows what else I can't remember off the top of my head onto your short list. Her obsessive zeal absorbing her personality is enough of a problem in enough places that you can't sweep it under the rug and pretend like it doesn't exist or it is small potatoes. Its there and if not dealt with it is an obvious problem.

No...I think that's about it.

Though I've never seen her in Colors DS, so maybe I should look it up and refresh on Free Riders and Chronicles. I don't recall those being too bad.

Everyone was bad in Free Riders. Really bad.

Having Amy no longer crushing on Sonic and turning her in to book worm is the opposite of character development, I mean when did Amy ever find it fun to count box's in her spare time.
