IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

Yet more Bumblekast, this time on Balancing Characters vs Plot: 

  • So apparently, the Sonic vs Tails tag line for House of Cards was an editorial suggestion to make the story more accessible. Since the original arc had already been condensed into two issues, there was little choice but to rely on what came before and some mental gymnastics to make it work. 
  • He laments not taking more advantage of backup stories to have more character driven exploration ala Stargazing. 
  • There is apparently an FAQ esque source that helps track what questions have been answered thus far. 
  • Sees Marine as more eager to meet new friends compared to Sticks. 
  • Questions Eggman's perspective on Gerald's legacy in regards to what the public record actually is: is he just a famed innovator before "disappearing" or is he an infamous traitor for science? He also prefers if he was less of a tragic figure and more of an egotist perhaps under GUNs employ who got hyperfocused  into what he is at some point. 
  • The Warp Topaz can warp reality. Also, he admits to flubbing the Zeti shell's name in the same issue.
  • Doesn't know how Megawoman/WeaponWoman AU would've been handled if Capcom and Archie allowed it. Sees Rock as troubleshooter to Roll's assistance, so she'd be more empathetic to him finding the problem. 
  • Not sure Sonic and Pokemon crossover would last long, never mind what continuity or conditions it would operate under--Sonic getting caught is overdone, but might get a nod. Sonic would run a Glasscannon team if he's patient enough, Tails would be a better trainer through a well researched team including moves like Blizzard, and Knuckles would be a hands on Fighting team. 
  • Thinks Metal Virus is worse than Roboticization by a small margin.

That sounds like a fun fanart idea for later :D

Already thinking of a Bat & Jewel team for Rouge...🤩🤩

Can't really disagree with that.

Something you said I think a bit ago " Ian flynn might take some time to figure shadow out " or something to that effect. Its on the money, I think. He does need to figure shadow out, he doesn't really have a good grasp of who shadow is right now. Neither do we ( and neither does sega ) Ian Probably assuming the guy was the same, wrote a story assuming we all knew the deal. It was setting up some big thing and was less about shadow himself. When push comes to shove turns out we including Ian himself didn't know the deal. Turns out he's not the same guy, and I think and I could be wrong the story requires a much more compassionate version of the shadow doesn't exist and I don't think the moral quandary is going anywhere. So that issue meant to set up who he is , but was spent setting up a plot line is going to lead nowhere and effect nothing. Its kinda moot. It didn't matter that year, can't be executed correctly now, and bonus it doesn't even matter to this plot.

Oh. I suppose that is a takeaway.

That kinda makes Ian " i'm gonna avoid shadow thing " feel a bit worse because It doesn't at least to me feel like shadow got his set up issue, his issue was to set up future plot. And it worked out for no one involved and he's seemingly getting punished for that. You know what makes it double worse, you can take that moral quandary out of this arc and effects nothing. Sonic can have this entire moral argument by himself and with other characters and it serves the same thing narrative. Yay.

Pretty much.

The one where some of em are different types of magic horse than they were before they are also from different worlds . Applejack may not be coming back and spike gets a bit more prominence

Woah-woah-woah, wait, this is a world hopping series now?

Chris is inescapable. He will make his return, one day.

When the two worlds align again.

I don't know how long it will last. There was a comic based on Saturday Morning cartoon about bunch of animals hiding in a forest from evil doctor and his robots and it lasted 291 issues + spin-offs.

A bit of a different situation. The Sonic video game series was still alive and well and offered plenty of synergistic energy to keep the comics relevant.

MLP:FIM died just few months ago. And they already announced sorta-spin-ogg "Pony Live" show, "Season 10" comic, not to mention Gen 5 will show up soon. I think it will last for year or two more... then again, Adventure Time "season 11" comic died spectacularly. Canceleld after 6 issues.

I guess MLP still has its toys... but i have to imagine the show was the crown jewel of that portfolio.

Understand this was leaked information and this is subject to change. But apperently each pony or at least the mane ones are guardians and princess, everyone is blaze the cat and they world hop to solve problems. To different themed worlds and stuff.

This sounds like a dark prophecy

The toys do very well and they spun the shit off into the equestria girls stuff that also did very well. I do think they are still kind of on thin ice. Not to insult us on over here but the people in the MLP fanbase seem very...organized. And are kind of tentative on even continuing their fandom at this point now that the show is done. That isn't to say adult or teenaged fans are all of the fan or even most of them for that matter. But their core fanbase have effectively grown up with and possibly out of it. This new show when it releases has to effectively entice and entire new generation of kids while keeping the old characters around to keep the older crowds fanaticism going. All this without Lauren Faust.

Its not impossible, they have their work cut out for them.

Onestamente, questa non è nemmeno la prima volta che Ian afferma di essere bi. Lo ha menzionato prima su Twitter. 

Personalmente mi piace pensare che Sonic e Sally abbiano provato ad uscire dopo il riavvio, ma hanno scoperto che l'atteggiamento avventuroso di Sonic e l'incapacità di rimanere in un posto hanno reso difficile per loro rimanere in coppia, così si sono lasciati reciprocamente.

I think the same

Issue 24 by far the best issue yet. The artwork was amazing and tangles expressions to be carried by sonic (both saying it and it happening were amazing* and glad starline is finally taking up for himself. He has a lot of potential as his own villian
