Evan Stanley also created a new flavor of Cream & Cheese

Hm, more like Creme and Cafe.

If pre-reboot Archie wasn't interrupted I could have seen that coming up in a Moebius story.

Yeah, probably.

Although there actually was a snooty Cream complete with a dog purse in the Championship arc.

New bumblekast.

Infinite's backstory wasn't deeper meant to be more. He legit just wanted to see the world burn. It is not more complicated than that. Ian flynn was provided with the reference material. Guess that explains why he seemingly didn't give a shit about his friends being dead.

Yeah, I do remember that. SEGA specifically provided the brief outline of events that should happen in each comic and the rest was up to him & the artist.

In other news, I should probably start listening again. How many episodes has it been since Aleah's Fire Emblem episode?

So a bit random, but I was wondering, do we have a definitive list of all the times sheep girl has turned up in the IDW run so far? Just kindof curious really, I know she turns up a few times as a background character.

Issue #2: kCHR31U.jpg

Issue #13: SbC0aEK.jpg

Issue #24: nFXWWIl.jpg

Issue #25: KnSSiab.jpg

Issue #26: uk3SppL.jpg

That's just about all of them.

Tells a neat story of a timid girl who followed Amy into the Restoration and even suited up for battle when the virus situation started getting worse.

As a side note, I like the fact that Sheep Girl has appeared in at least 5 issues of IDW now, but doesn't have a wiki page, while Ron, the chili dog vendor from T&W #1 gets his own page. https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Ron#Others

That is funny.

I'd say it's because he has an established name and role.

She only shows up in ABT issues.

That narrows it down quite nicely.

ABT also did #7 and the TSR one shot, but she doesn't appear in either. Probably because #7 is just Sonic and Metal Sonic fighting on an airship, while TSR focuses on a race with all the TSR racers.

It's a minor thing, but I must admit, it would be kind of cool if she stuck around. Doesn't have to be as an actual character, but I do like recurring easter eggs like this.

I'll fully admit that I was skeptical of the IDW comics at first, mostly as a result of being a tad bitter over the cancellation of the Archie Sonic and Megaman titles (still a little bummed about Megs getting canned but I digress). I decided to suck it up and pick up the Tangle and Whisper limited series since I just happened to find a few issues at my local bookstore and was instantly hooked. The series so far has been a showcase for how well Ian Flynn does when given the chance to create a world wholehog, pun entirely intended, and when he doesn't have to contend with restrictive mandates which has lead to some of my favorite Sonic content in years.

Same here, I like little cameos that fans can have fun scanning the artwork for in each issue.

Y'know it might not mean anything but recently Archie Mega Man was taken off Comixology which implies Archie no longer have the rights and it could be up for sale. Now yeah I do admit if a new Mega Man comics starts up it'll probably be a brand new continuity but as I like to bring up a lot IDW has done revivals of dead books before.

Who knows, I don't hold much hope since Mega Man isn't nearly as recognizable as Sonic or Transformers but I can still hope!

Oh I know, but they don't really seem as restricting as they were in the post-gw Archie books. I remember reading that Sega was handling issues with the mandates on a case-by-case basis now too? Either way I think the writing for the series has been really solid up to this point and I'm pretty hyped to see the next issue.

Ian flynn has made very specific notice that it is not better,but different. I cant point to obvious examples like shadow. But there are problably a myriad of restrictions reasonable or no made by sega about characters we dont see.

Ian flynn specifically it isnt better,  just different
