Oh, does it? I thought Advance 3 came after Heroes?

So at first I thought she was gonna use the Sol Emeralds to restore his memory but then I remembered she sorta uses them for inter dimensional travel.

I kinda hope Amnesia!Sonic lasts for some more time for Year 3, as a side story while the Chao Races are going on.

I'm surprised this wasn't something spoiled in solicits (as far as I know), so I'm expecting it to remain a part of an upcoming storyline for at least a few issues.

The bit with Rouge and the Rogues is great. I'd love to see more thief vs. thief stuff in the future.

A little pastiche of Spy vs. Spy would be hilarious, but works best in an annual.

It looks like issue 32 may have been delayed at the last moment again. Stores seem to have their physical copies delivered but several online places are now showing a release date of 30 September.

 

ETA: Yeah, looks like it’s delayed digitally while at least some people have been able to buy the physical copies at stores. This next week is gonna be fun for spoiler avoidance for the digital crew :/

So I got the issue and read it this morning. So thoughts below.

Its very apparent now that the fear about the amnesia was very premature. This was very much the ending of a long stretch of story rather than the beginning of one.

This was definitely the least good of this short batch we've gotten. I understand the book end thing that was being attempted with Mr. Needlemouse but there wasn't enough time dedicated to it for it feel more poignant than what I suspect the book was going for.

There were still a lot of nice moments though. Vector taking charge made my heart soar with happiness. I love how Rouge just continues to carry herself. Even when I know what she's up to I can't help but wonder if there's more. It was funny and adorable seeing Charmy try to rip Omega out of the giant robot on his own. The group hug was nice.

I do hope that with things even less like what Forces was this next arc of goofball adventures can be as freeing and as expansive as Evan wishes. I do think Ian did a good job of making that open for her.

Aw, Sonic did get his memory back? I was hoping Ian was leaving that as something for Evan to play with. 

Oh, well I guess it gives her a clean slate to work with.

Alright, I bought the digital copy and read it. 

Spoiler

Overall, I got no real complaints. I called Sonic getting his memory back this issue a while ago, and it was clear an intended bookends for what happened with Eggman getting his memories back from Metal Sonic. Whether it succeeds or not is up to you, but I feel like it works well enough for what it is but I can understand if people wanted more. 

Beyond that, the issue is pretty much one large set piece of action, which looks pretty damn good I'll admit. Feels pretty disjointed when the stuff with Sonic and Blaze interlaces it, but alas. I did like moments like Rouge and Tails exploiting Eggman's slapdash mech, and Omega ultimately getting his revenge in the end by wiping the remnants of Eggman's mech. 

And ultimately, the entire conflict just kind of ends with "And the Adventure continues" Wasn't expecting much of a followup with that moral conflict earlier with Shadow, but eh I knew that wasn't going anywhere. 

Not a terrible ending, just kind of by the numbers. Overall, the Metal Virus saga was pretty...mixed for me. I think my feelings could ultimately be summed as "Good, but could be better" . Here's hoping Evan's run allows for more smaller stake stories that expands on the world and cast more. Just a bit too much action and not enough smaller and quiet scenes to balance them for my tastes. But I can't say that I disliked any of it, I'm still eating really good reading this. 

 

EDIT: Also, the artists must be really huge Jojo fans, cuz man there's a single page that really got a chuckle out of me.

Fucking knew SEGA wouldn't let Ian be ballsy enough to change the status quo. A potentially interesting set-piece came and then ended in the span of 2 issues. It's like it shouldn't have happened at all.
