Gonna be interesting to see the threat of the metal zombie with a long range attack. Much more of a threat than a...slightly faster metallic zombie that Shadow is.

So she'll continue to "flex" on him?

#24 Whoooooooo

This was heavy stuff. But in a good way. Might be best issue this year, maybe even so far.

Let's start with drawbacks: plot is the same as issues 17-20 and 22. Plot didn't really moved. If this issue felt more "fresh" in content, I would have zero complains.

Positives: EVERYTHING ELSE. Despite the repeated plot, Flynn managed to find new way to make thing depressive. Atmosphere is  opressive. Look at Cream! If Amy falls, she won't even have tears, she'll just sigh heavily. And there is poor Tails, Whisper and Sonic yelling "I can't" in most pathetically sad way. But of course Tangle is the winner, she was AMAZING in like, every panel

Spoiler

but at least Sonic got to hug someone, because she's already lost. Yaaaay.....

Artwork is just gorgeous. Again, might be best in whole IDW and I can't think of anything better from Archie right now.

And I do love seeing so many characters in one story and all of them interacting. Of course that means not everyone will shine.
Amy is very... dry in this storyline. I understand why some people don't like this, but this simply isn't story ABOUT her. It's like complaining that Knuckes stayed home during Lost World. Story just wasn't about him, okay? And in the end Amy's optimism is "above average", but not "through the roof high". It's not that strange that whole thing is wearing her down, especially considering that she's in charge. If someone else was a leader, perhaps she would have more energy to keep spirits up.
Espio outburst is understandable, but I wonder if Flynn plays it right. If I was in his shoes, I would drop the whole "kill/spare Eggman" debate and leave it to fans. By constantly drawing attention to it, he makes it more look like Sonic was in wrong. So unless the story has a twist that Mr. Tinker left a cure or something, it doesn't seems like a good idea.
Either way I don't mind, those are tiny nerdy things to chew on. Rest of the issue was to good.

I'm pretty exited right now. I have NO IDEA if story will end in #25 or somehow keep. I purposely avoided all solicits and spoilers, finally I'm in completely darkness.
Also, my prediction how this arc will end
 

Spoiler

Super Sonic. Those emeralds sit there too long doing nothing.

If Sonic speed is a half-cure, then magical Super Speed is full cure. Sonic will go Super and then touch every infected person, spreading his cure-ness.

okay so ive been lurking for awhile, but wanted to say stuff for this issue because it's probably my favorite issue as of yet, or at least in my top 3. re-reading it for the third time now. the issue starts well with

Spoiler

 

sonic and espio, as espio puts blame on sonic actions for not probably dealing with eggman/mr tinker. nothing too new but i like the quote we get from sonic and it reminds me why sonic is still my favorite character.

"so what? we have to assume the worst about everyone and everything? show no mercy to anyone? no second chances?"

with how the games just show sonic being smug 99% of the time, its just nice seeing sonic's more caring and kind side, with his ability to forgive and give people a chance. we saw this with him and metal, too. i can see why people in and out of series are crapping on him for it but i just find it really enduring and respectable. love ya sonic.

 

on a less despairing and cute note(s),

Spoiler

amy waggles her tail when she notices sonic near the beginning of the issue (or i think that's what they were trying to protray?). it's very cute. we also see ABT's OC/Sheep Girl looking pretty badass. I wouldn't mind if she became an actual/more recurring character tbh.

ngl kinda glad we didn't go the lost world route with

Spoiler

 

tails getting mad or livid with sonic for ruining the data recorder. here it would be more understandable but... nah.

seeing our lil' fox boy shed tears (and seeing cream being any type of depressed) is always sad, though.

 

i liked how they tried to trick us into thinking

Spoiler

 

tangle wasn't infected at first by showing her fighting zombots by kicking them with chairs, even when it wasn't ness-

..actually, as a typed that i realized if she decided to kick them naturally the zombot infection would've spread more faster, which she was trying to prevent. oops. pretty smart on their side lol.

 

the sonic/tangle interaction in this issue was very nice.

Spoiler

 

tangle cheering sonic up and washing away his doubts, even just for the moment, is what i truly loved to see. felt like something sonic would do for tails. she also isn't letting the events and her upcoming zombotification get to her, or at least trying to. these two are kindred spirits indeed. 

and also the damn hug. omg it hit me in the kokoro. sad because sonic hasn't had physical affection since he's been infected and has been trying to avoid touching his friends instead (seen later with amy asking him for help). ill give this dude a hug even if it means ill be infected deadass lmao. oh, and more sad because it'll be the last thing tangle does with a friend (plus the last one she sees) before she's a zombot. ugh.

tangle fighting until the very end is very anime-ish. she does it with a smile, badass sparkly tears, and some badass dialogue too until she's finally transformed. would definitely love to see this animated. come on sega.

when sonic says that tangle was sorry but she had nothing to be sorry about because she was a hero... i felt that. damn dude.

 

so the biggest part of this issue...

Spoiler

can't say much about tangle and whisper in this issue because you guys already said most of my thoughts. i'll start by saying the expressions from whisper made me realize ABT is my favorite artist for the comic. before this issue it was definitely close between evan but this guy just draws everything towards my personal taste so well like omg. his fighting scenes were already so amazing but the dude can also draw emotions onto these characters so well too. you truly felt the panic and desperate feelings from whisper trying to go and get to tangle just from her facial expressions alone. now im definitely gonna be MORE (because i already was before this issue) hyped if i see the guy drawing for a future issue.
...is it bad im lowkey starting to ship these two? i aplogize if so.


as much as i'm rambling about how much i want to frame this issue in a museum, it has flaws, or IMO just a flaw. It doesn't really move the story forward until the very last page. eh it's fine with me though, i haven't felt this attached to sonic characters in so long. 8.5/10

Some predictions:

At some point Tails will fall to the Zombot virus. That will be the straw that breaks the camel's back for Sonic and he will go full zombot.

Starline will take over as the main villain of the series after this arc.

Chaos Emeralds will be the mcguffin that stops the virus. 

Maybe Eggman becomes Mr Tinker again and helps save the day?

What are the chances of seeing Zombot merch in the SEGA store later on when this arc has wrapped up? We've already had Tangle on shirts and a pin set with her and Whisper. I would love to see a Zombot Sonic keychain, if possible.

This comics effort to make me feel sad is losing its effect with it feeling like people are getting turn in to zombies just for emotional effect why isn't anyone thinking about the master emerald when it save the day many times. Amy looking so worried feels outlandish when she sees Eggman stuff animals in to the hearts of robots daily.

@Fire-N-Space, I would like to apologize for you getting ganged up on there as it doesn't seem like anyone realized your initial post on this issue was in response to the conversation stemmed off from my complaints as an Amy fan. On the topic of your comment though, no, Amy is not a wet blanket as she is not ruining things for anyone. Conversely, Amy is almost a non entity in this volume. She is there almost entirely just to tell Sonic information and point him to the next plot thread.

 

Don't apologize you were not in the wrong. Wet blanket may not be the word I'm looking for but I was quite disappointed by what I saw.

The Master Emerald didn't save the day in either of those games.

The Master Emerald was unused/ignored entirely in Sonic Heroes.

The Master Emerald is a stronger chaos emerald which help save the day.

SA1, it had no involvement in the final story.

SA2, it was used, then immediately cancelled out by the biolizard.

The Emerald didn’t appear at all in Heroes.

If people are doing predictions, I guess I can say something in that regard in a follow up post.

The only games immediately coming to mind on the Master Emerald would be Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Adventure 2, and Sonic Advance 3. Not sure about Battle, Chronicles, or any of the Game Gear era stuff.

Which only means it would be a pretty nice thing to include in the resolution here.

I finally got around to reading 24...

...Best issue, bar none.

First things first, before jumping into spoilers, ABT has become my favourite artist in this series from this issue alone. His art just elevated everything to such a high level, his manga like art style allowing for more serious expression work, his use of colour and shading to show off different shots, and make gut punch moments hit even harder.

The story is just the best the series has had so far IMO. This reminded me a lot more of that darkest hour arc Ian tried to do in Archie where Naugus gains control of New Mobotropolis, Eggman successfully roboticises Sally, Bunnie loses her cybernetics, and Ant ended up in a coma stopping Metal Sonic from killing Elias, and Nicole being despised by everyone thanks to Naugus successfully manipulating Mina into making hate propaganda against her.

Spoiler

First, the big one - Tangle turning broke me, Tangle and Whisper did a good job of establishing them even with the lackluster ending. I still wasn’t a massive fan of Tangle, but something here just pushed her higher up, her constant enthusiasm despite being infected, her sacrifice to let everyone else escape, her last stand, that heartbreaking hug with Sonic where she lets her positive mask slip and lets out a few tears, it’s everything I wanted from the original characters in IDW, and I’m so happy to have gotten it.

The art just does so much more to make the story really stand out. Tangle’s last stand against the zombots was absolutely beautiful, the use of colours shifting more and more as the infection takes hold, Tangle’s desperate attempts to keep in control of herself for a moment longer. The shot where she finally turns, and the scene darkens to empathise her new form, and then the moment her boastful pose a moment prior just...drops into another zombot amongst the crowd, it legitimately is one of my favourite moments in any Sonic comic, Archie included. I wish something like this was done when Shadow was turned.

I love the idea of it, that one of our main characters of the comic not only turns but isn’t used for a massive cliffhanger. They just...drop, and become one with the hive mind, something about that to me makes it so much sadder than when you make a big show of it like with Shadow, only for to just end up with nothing but a meh fight, and Shadow looking stupid.

I feel like this shows the alternative timeline where Shadow actually got to be infected as Ian intended, where he took off his inhibitor rings in an attempt to rescue everyone. Tangle just shows how much of a difference a last stand, and a genuine good reason for getting infected makes things effectively hit. I couldn’t care less when Shadow was infected, despite a stronger connection to him, yet Tangle broke my heart when she was infected, even though she was nowhere near my list of favourites beforehand.

I also like how it shows the individual personalities. There was a debate about Amy here about her not being optimistic enough, and reading the story, I was just thinking how I just don’t agree with the complaint. The whole point of the issue is showing everyone else at their lowest point after showing Sonic at his lowest last issue.

You have Espio losing his usually calm and collected demeanour as he shifts from blaming himself for being stupid enough to let Vector take Charmy into Resistance HQ, before quickly calling Sonic out for letting Eggman have a second chance. I really liked seeing Sonic point out what a lot of people have argued in his favour before - that Sonic believes in second chances and hates the idea of just outright killing somebody for past actions, and I liked how Tangle even tied into it by telling Sonic that it isn’t his fault Starline brought Eggman back worse than ever.

Cream was just heartbreaking to see, since this is the first time I can recall we’ve ever seen her like this, emotionally closed off and trying to hide her feelings. 

I liked how Tails tried his best to keep positive, to fail and fall apart, needing Amy to step in and help him get a grip. Whisper was the same, her desperate need to help Tangle, and having to be held back, only to be comforted on the flight out as Tangle turns was one of the biggest tearjerkers of the series, thanks in no part to Tangle and Whisper.

Amy is obviously the main point here. She’s seen literally nearly the entire world fall while she was in charge, she saw close friends infected to let them keep going, and lets keep in mind that the last four issues happened in one day, meaning Amy is reeling from - in her best attempts at leadership - Tails losing their cure, and his lab, Resistance HQ falling, and everyone being infected, including Vector and Vanilla, Sonic losing Tails’ analysis device due to Eggman, and now Tangle’s town falling, with Tangle herself, and that’s on top of EVERYTHING ELSE that’s happened in this arc.

What’s worse is that Amy still hasn’t lost all of her optimism, she’s keeping enough of a steady head to be able to snap everyone else out of their problems and get their head in the game, she’s doing her best with the hand she’s dealt, but she’s suffering from tons of failures, which we already saw was getting to her right before Resistance HQ fell, the art even shows that everyone is utterly exhausted, including Amy. That’s not even mentioning the fact that the survivors have NO supplies now, Tails can’t make any inventions or equipment, all they have is their ship and that’s it.

She’s not going to be perky, optimistic and utterly love stuck with Sonic in what must be the most dire situation they’ve ever been in. Frankly, all things considered, I think she’s being written really well as someone who is suffering from defeat after defeat, setback after setback, and yet still has to keep a courageous face of leadership in order to ensure the remaining survivors work effectively together without being hindered by their exhaustion and hopelessness.

So I was looking at the solicits of the three revealed upcoming issues thus far and I honestly forgot about this tidbit:

Spoiler

With everyone exhausted as the world falls, will they be able to stand up to Chaos Emerald-powered bad guys and zombots?!

So I made a status about this earlier last night, but since more people are accurate during the day, I thought I'd post it here too. So since the comic is about to hit its first milestone next month, I suppose this is a good time to ask everyone on their current feelings towards it; Things that you like, things you think can be improved. hopes for the future of it. etc etc.

Being fair, Sonic and co would worry more about ensuring they can save as many people as possible before trying to track down the Master Emerald.

I’ve got a prediction that the survivors will head to Angel Island as their only salvation, only for a reveal that it was actually one of the first targets hit by the Zombot virus. It feels too off to me that Eggman wouldn’t hit it first, especially since Metal Sonic had just tried to take it over in Eggman’s name. Eggman’s way too petty to just let such a thing lie, and I have my doubts that he would leave the emerald lying so long when he could easily steal it now. Knuckles can’t exactly fight a virus.

We also know that Eggman likely has gathered the Chaos Emeralds because one of the solicits states that the D6 controlled Zombots will be powered up with the emeralds. The D6 would have no knowledge of them, so it has to be Eggman or Starline.

My guess is that we’ll see one of two things - either Knuckles is just barely surviving on Angel Island, and when Sonic appears, Knuckles needs to use tricks and traps to fight since using his fists would lead straight to him being infected, or we’ll get a reveal where Knuckles has already been turned, and Eggman, or the D6 were holding onto him as a special weapon, leading us to a Sonic VS Zombot Knuckles fight.

Starline had already collected the Emerald's by the time he sent Rough & Tumble to get Mr. Tinker and then Eggman placed them in his throne.

Which makes a little more sense now that I think about it.

No. In Adventure 1 Knuckles had to collect it's pieces but it did fuck all to actually stop Chaos. In SA2 I guess technically it did stop the Chaos Emeralds from charging the Eclipse Cannon but then the Bio Lizard merged with the Ark and Super Sonic and Shadow beat him. It's nowhere to be seen in Heroes and is only referenced by Rouge.

So onto predicting the apparent finale of this story army and previously mentioned concerns about the Deadly Six:
 

Spoiler

 

I have been a bit worried that the Zeti were just gonna be the last minute RPG final bosses of this arc and thus not really have their first real appearance together [that's for keeps] actually be about them. That they're just a convenient formality at the end of the day and quite possibly won't be sticking around for a satisfactory amount of play, while Sonic presumably teams up with Eggman & Starline to find a cure that'll rain on their parade by happenstance. Now I honestly forgot that a chunk of the previous two solicits we've gotten confirmed this, but the concern was still there.

Looking at the most recent solicit though, as well as the previous two, seems to suggests that they will be getting at least some decent amount of use as this arc wraps up, though it may still be kinda short. The next issue is actually a stand alone story-title of the heroes setting up a last refuge that'll probably be Angel Island before heading into the final battle, so it'll probably have some time given to following up on the Deadly Six arriving on the Faceship and interacting with both Doctors as there is a change in management. Especially given that it is not only a milestone, but an extra lengthy one at that.

 

So moving into the finale itself,

Spoiler

 

the Zeti will have taken some power from Eggman's throne and use that to boost their electromagnetic control of the mutated Zombots so that they may turn the remaining survivors before ravaging what's left of their world, as Master Zik & Zavok previously intended. Eggman & maybe Starline will likely flee to avoid that fate amongs wherever else they have in mind and will cross paths with Sonic in a bid to try cleaning up the mess Starline wrought while levying the fact that this is both of their faults and thus they have to wary of fatal distraction or betrayal between each other. Much of the Restoration, possibly including Knuckles(if they do come straight to Angel Island) will stand against the Zombots lead by the Chaos-powered Deadly Six in another fight to take back their world.

While this is happening, Amy, Tails, Cream, and Gemerl will actually take the fight to the Faceship and/or wherever the Zeti stations it to try to disable the Emerald Throne and possily manufacture a cure at the source. Unfortunately, they will encounter the Filler Two(perhaps with Vanilla in tow if they really wanna fuck with them for some reason) either standing guard or simply having been dispatched upon noticing them sneaking away and have to put up a fight. Perhaps in a move to make them actually vicious, Zeena will set her sights on the jaded Cream as an easy target and move to take her out of the fight. This sets off Gemerl and finally break Amy, causing the three to do all they can to defeat her and Zomom at the cost of losing their chance to disable the throne as well as potentially making the issue worse as they lose Cream and perhaps Gemerl to the Deadly Six's control. Meanwhile, Sonic, Eggman, and Rouge work through everything they have avaiable to stop the Zombots, likely dealing with what become of Silver and losing at least one of their party in process.

On the other end of things, the rest of the Restoration under Lanolin or the returned Commander Knuckles will be slowly losing the fight as the other four Zeti, Tangle, Charmy, and Vector move to increase their forces. An absolutely livid Whisper will be using her Wisps ruthlessly in an attempt to take out the Zeti(and I guess Starline if he didn't leave with Eggman and/or lose control by this point) as Master Zik and/or Zor prey upon her losing everything and how it's made her lose her finesse. It is when most of their forces, including Knuckles himself, are as good as goo that Sonic  returns with a solution to turn the tide of the battle. He uses this solution, which could indeed by the Chaos Emeralds, to cure most of the Zombots, including Shadow, Tangle, the Chaotix, and the Rabbit Family. The Zeti are either kicked off the Island, imprisoned by their enemies, or perhaps even become Zombots themselves if they aren't immune,  Eggman & Starline likely get their asses kicked at some point throughout the climax, and while the Restoration, Chaotix, and Team Dark are glad to have eradicated the virus, things are not quite at peace among them as some will probably never be the same again.

Or something of that ilk. 🤢

Eggman:" is there any information you can give us on how he was different than the other zombots , any changes in their behavior in general as of late"

"Well we powered them up with chaos emeralds. I know most people cann't use em but we figured it would give them a buff or something. Is that a thing pink one?"

Everyone: " ..."

Zavok: What's the matter why do you all look like -

Being fair, Sonic and co would worry more about ensuring they can save as many people as possible before trying to track down the Master Emerald.I’ve got a prediction that

Spoiler

 

the survivors will head to Angel Island as their only salvation, only for a reveal that it was actually one of the first targets hit by the Zombot virus. It feels too off to me that Eggman wouldn’t hit it first, especially since Metal Sonic had just tried to take it over in Eggman’s name. Eggman’s way too petty to just let such a thing lie, and I have my doubts that he would leave the emerald lying so long when he could easily steal it now. Knuckles can’t exactly fight a virus.

We also know that Eggman likely has gathered the Chaos Emeralds because one of the solicits states that the D6 controlled Zombots will be powered up with the emeralds. The D6 would have no knowledge of them, so it has to be Eggman or Starline.

My guess is that we’ll see one of two things - either Knuckles is just barely surviving on Angel Island, and when Sonic appears, Knuckles needs to use tricks and traps to fight since using his fists would lead straight to him being infected, or we’ll get a reveal where Knuckles has already been turned, and Eggman, or the D6 were holding onto him as a special weapon, leading us to a Sonic VS Zombot Knuckles fight.

 

 

Mm, I would think him having it would've at least been hinted previously.

So I made a status about this earlier last night, but since more people are accurate during the day, I thought I'd post it here too. So since the comic is about to hit its first milestone next month, I suppose this is a good time to ask everyone on their current feelings towards it; Things that you like, things you think can be improved. hopes for the future of it. etc etc.

My opinion hasn't changed. Zombie thing is dragging on way too long and isn't interesting. It's overly melodramatic to compensate for how boring and repetitive it is. What few decent emotional moments this arc does have are undermined by the fact that it keeps getting repeated in like, every issue. None of it has any real impact. 

The writing in general feels subpar for Ian, filled with awkward syntax and really, really hamfisted references. Yeah, a cute nod to the fans here and there is nice. This shit ain't.

Like, I know I keep harping on this point in particular, but really, it's the perfect encapsulation of why this comic doesn't work for me. Just cheap references and shock value to disguise how shallow and boring it is. Makes for good "I KNOW WHAT THAT IS" reddit posts and tweets though.

Going forward they need to just not do "Seasons" anymore. I know that's probably out of Ian's hands, but they really need to consider doing episodic, character-driven stories for a while, like what Archie was finally going to do before it got cancelled. If you need to write for the trades, do smaller, more focused stories that interconnect. 

I keep getting annoyed with this because IDW was a chance to start fresh, free from the shackles of the old nonsense. No Genesis Waves or backstory dumps. But all it seems to have done is throw out the good bits of Archie while still retaining the weaker aspects. Boring melodrama, fanservice as a crutch, and story arcs that just go on and on and on.
