IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

Nice see acknowledgment that Starline's "Respect" for Eggman read more like he was crushing on him something fierce. Also betting the Warp Topaz is going to be a part of a future storyline. That's a lot of exposition for it to not be important later.

The warp topaz...

Spoiler

May be the reason the Zombots are not in the future, and no one is present. Eggman may want to get rid of them. It'd be like shurg Thrash and the echidnas, only this time they would return, now the question is... which planet/world/dimension will they end up?

Also if the topaz can alter reality, it's a nice expy for the off-limits Phantom Ruby, and hopefully we can get some what if stories down the line as you said.

I know things don't have to connect to the Archie continuity but it'd be kinda neat if they did revive the Archie comic alongside the IDW comic and reveal the Warp Topaz is like a crystallized Genesis Portal or something. 

Could be cool to use it for big multiverse events or something.

The multiverse I want to see:

- Human Dimension

- Classic timeline

- Blaze's world

- Other Sega universes (maybe)

I know Classic is off-limits for crossovers. Still, it is canon like Infinite who is also off-limits... Ugh, Segaaaaa.

If the canon immigrants were to be introduced, I think they'd have to be from the Modern Sonic world.

An "extreme reality alteration" is the only way something like the two worlds crock could be introduced with any semblance of logic.

I mean, it is attached to a fairly significant supporting antagonist.

Oh shoot, I didn't think of that.

IDW Eggman's a lot more tolerant than Archie Eggman.

Probably because Starline is a fan who isn't armed, psychotic, and eager to kill for power.

To say nothing of Eggman himself not being a racist complete monster.

Maybe Starline was responsible for Two Worlds in the first place. Maybe even other retcons. He never said he was able to fix the alterations it caused.

The universe I want to see is the old Mega Man comics. But not in Sonic. It's own series. I miss it

Same. However if they brought it back at say IDW they're smart enough that if they did another Worlds Crossover it'd be produced as it's own miniseries and not interrupt the numbering of the book.

Also while it may not be that Ian, Ryan Jampole and Matt Herms were talking about a "Thing" they were working on the other day on Twitter so who knows.

I know its for the sake of Starline's disillusionment with him, but good god does Eggman come off as exceedingly short sighted here. I share Starline's frustration. 

That being said, it's pretty understandable and I could completely believe that Eggman would be so far up his own ass that he fails to make any type of contingency plan should his shit go wrong.

I really like how Eggman can act so utterly idiotic, and yet so high and mighty at the same time. (spoilers in case someone didn't read the previews

Spoiler

The "Joke's on you, there is no cure" and "don't touch them, duh" just goes as absolutely far as possible to show how much of a dumbass Eggman can be, although even if this feels over the top to his usual schemes. This feels like the usual "Eggman screws with something he can't control" joke taken up to eleven. 

You could probably make the argument that maybe he just went full throttle this time to try consolidate control while Sonic and co were now busy with clean-up efforts, and were spread thin, but it's insane how Eggman just legitimately thought "lol just dont touch them" would be a good enough solution.

"He's got an IQ of 300" yeah and only jerks and egotists brag about their IQ.

Here's the thing you can be really smart but also really shortsighted because you're so sure of your intellect.

Comic’s out on the IDW app...

...except I have the frustrating ‘Not available for this device’ error again so I can’t read it. This happens quite often on the app. I wish they’d sort it out.

 

EDIT: They fixed it in 20 mins, awesome! Although this issue itself..... daaaamn.

Issue 23 spoilers

Spoiler

Man the teasing just increases with every issue. Really hope we get to see Sonic go full Zombot at some point! I hate seeing Sonic look so miserable but this arc has been so interesting! Really can't wait to see what Issue 24 brings us!

Read the issue, probably the best in awhile, especially with Eggman’s short sightedness biting him on the ass. Best part was seeing Sonic nearly go full zombot. He just looked ready to give up there and then after Eggman claimed there was no cure, and he officially lost the last chance of Tails being able to make one.

I agree, it was the best out of the trio of same-day stories, I especially enjoyed Sonic and Eggman's dynamic, their writing, the banter and seriousness, the conflict, and of course Eggman is a showman who brags about his brain, he's so full of himself and childish he doesn't think about the details, meanwhile Starline...

Spoiler

Is ready to take care of the Deadly Six and the Zombots. I like how he was able to find a way to control them but then Eggman destroyed his ship with the frequency, lol. So the Zeti will be useful after all.

Also who wants to bet that…

Spoiler

Dr. Starline found the conch by time travelling to Sonic Lost World when Sonic kicked it out of Eggman's hands? That would have been cool to see, so that's my complaint. Also that letting go Metal Sonic was not addressed... yet... I hope they will.

Zavok was also written pretty strong, I think Ian will do miracles with the D6, as he usually does… when SEGA lets him.

My biggest complaint is that the next main issue will probably be out in January… ugh, how do these comics keep selling well with all these constant delays?

Eggman released werehog into outer space along with the chaos emeralds and didn't stop to think for one fractionth of a second "oh maybe I might need those lol" and had this pointed out to him even

Eggman is smart but he also hella stupid.

Naw, ya'll rite.

 

I think this is the most detail it's gotten in a continuity that ,left to his own devices, Eggman is a fucking idiot.
