IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

They needed a familiar character to lead the Resistance and handle it when it's not being focused. And by process of elimination, Amy is definitely the character that has nothing going on otherwise.

Couldn't it have just disbanded?

She was called with zombie invasion and she sent help.

How else should she react? By charging herself with hammer? Getting distracted by Twinkle Park excellent promotions?

No...I believe the right thing to say was "no she doesn't" and then list why.

It usually works.

Amy doesn't act like Sally because...she's not a chipmunk.

It did, didn't it?

Amy does act more like Sally now and I hate it. 

For context, what would you describe as acts like Sally?

For all the innumerable faults of the movie, at least it seems to be 75% outside of Sega’s control. But if the movie flunks then Sonic Team will probably use it as an excuse to tighten their death grip. The tighter they squeeze, the more fall through the cracks, ya know?

Fall through the cracks?.

 So I got two main issues with Pre-boot Shadow, well 3

1) He always felt connected to nothing ever ( This persisted in the reboot tbh )

2) Ian always felt like he was trying to " end " his character

3) For a time like many other characters under penders, he felt very out of character

So yeah, that.

 

.So let's come back to this, since I didn't really respond to any of them:

1. That's honestly probably the best way to handle Shadow, for better or worse. His character and the tone that comes with it doesn't always gel with the get up & go, action packed, and sometimes goofy nature of the greater series.

2. In what way?

3. Well obviously. It's not hard to think he and Rouge were mandated to be in the comic, but Penders and perhaps (for what a little was able to use him)Mr. Bollers weren't quite sure what they were supposed to do with him given everything at the time.

Gorgeous cover. I'm really liking alot of the covers coming out for IDW. I doubt I would ever really go to the effort of collecting multiple issues for multiple covers, but the fact every issue gets 3 means there is usually at least 1 great one per issue.

I'm really looking forward to Tangle and Whisper, partially because I like both characters, partially because I really want it to do well financially, partially so that it proves that there is interest in the Sonic franchise even when Sonic himself isn't center stage, and partially because I do hope this means we could see a second book eventually.

Just now I noticed the octopus tentacle in the back.

Huh so they're adding Hentai into the IDW Sonic comics. We got tentacle, and I have seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

Someone else said 'Crap' recently, can't remember who it was without looking. Was it Charmy?

Is that what that is? At a glance, it almost looks like Whisper's mask.

I would also like to point out using Cosmo as an example is ridiculous. It had sales troubles because it's an incredibly obscure book and Archie is not exactly the best at running a business.

It was also not good or memorable in any way. It's forgettable as a sci-fi book, forgettable as a comedy book, and forgettable as a kiddie adventure book. Ian isn't good with comedy (by his own admission, to be fair), so putting him on a comedy sci-fi book was a bad idea. It seems like something they threw out there to fill the action-adventure void left by Sonic and Mega Man getting the axe, and hoped that Flynn and Yardley's names would have some pull with the former Sonic/MM crowd.

Ian's a cool guy, I don't want to seem like I just shit on him constantly for no reason, but he frankly has limited range. If he can't fall back on lore dumping and fanservice/memes he stumbles, and Cosmo was the perfect example of it.

Ontop of that, I think the suggestion that he's burnt out is uh... laughable... to say the least. Not only does this man continue to show genuinely respect and enthusiasm for this series he continues to enjoy. But he's coming up with new ideas, how can you say that' he is burn out and this year's narrative is a zombie apocalypse story using what was an Easter egg in one game.

He certainly respects the Sonic franchise, sure. But if he's genuinely enthusiastic about this comic it's sure as hell doesn't show in the writing. Over time he's gotten noticeably worse with pacing and even dialogue. His main thing is focusing on long-term plans but failing to tell stories in the moment that are memorable or engaging in their own right. It started with Iron Dominion, gradually got worse with Mecha Sally, reached its nadir with Shattered World, and now it's carried on to IDW to some extent.

And sure, the *idea* of the zombots is kind of neat (even if, again, it's just relying on DUDE OBSCURE REFERENCE LMAO). But the execution? It's uh...

Image result for anthony fantano not good

Again, he is certainly capable of putting good work out. He is significantly better than Penders (though, hot take, I'd argue Flynn has a few bad writing habits in common with ol' Ken). But his writing has a lot of problems that seem to have only gotten worse over the years, when you'd think he'd have improved after over a decade of working in the funny book industry.

Cue Tangle making a dumb joke about her's being longer/thicker/elastic-ier.
