I like Shadow’s super ego, I mean he speaks in the third person in SA2:

”I’m the Ultimate Lifeform” 

“I’m the Coolest.” 

“Let me show you my real power”

Third person implies he uses his own name as a pronoun.

Here's a listing on Amazon that popped up with seemingly no announcement:

Sonic The Hedgehog: The IDW Collection, Vol. 1, a graphic novel containing issues 1 - 12 in hardback.

Pretty much the best value if you want to get into IDW Sonic, or collect old issues. Releases June 8th, 2021.

I am just saying if any of us went around saying aloud “ I am coolest” and “I am the ultimate lifeform,” I reckon people would think its egomania, and the very least haughtiness.

I see a lot of the complaints about Shadow and it might just be poor memory on my part but was he not always like this? He had archs and became a good guy but he was still a pretty aloof and serious kinda guy. Him being here, having his own mission, acknowledging his allies but not intending to get involved, seems plenty in character to me.

That whole "I can't get infected cuz i'm epic" thing was silly tho

Up until recently, everyone's go to interpretation of Shadow was Archie's, who was glued to Rouge and Omega 24/7.

Not surprised they're doing this they've done these IDW Collection hardcovers for Transformers G.I. Joe and TMNT. They've done Hardcover Ghostbusters collections too but they're more collections of the completed runs.

I'm more surprised that it's so soon. TMNT for example started doing them in 2015 compared to the books 2011 start.

I still stand by my point, IDW Shadow is how SEGA sees Shadow nowadays. Just like for any other character, they have their vision and rules of how the image of the character is. It's just... flanderized and simple.

Shadow's portrayal is suffering because he is a complex character, and SEGA wants EVERY character to be kid friendly, so Shadow must be more simple than he is. Sadly.

I also want to touch on why SEGA loves IDW so much... it's under SEGA's rules, it reflects how they see Sonic, and yeah, they didn't like Archie because it was different, besides the fact that the old comic and its crew created a lot of messy legal controversies and shit, no wonder they wanted to start from zero again.

Many feel like he's too much of an aloof jerk.

As mentioned, his Archie incarnation was more benign and was stuck with Rouge and Omega in almost every one of his appearances

On one hand, I don't think Shadow is 100% out of character myself but I think also understand why some are irritated with how some of his traits can get overexaggerated at the expense of some of his more complex emotions or ability to cooperate at certain times. Basically what you described in your last sentence. Not the end of world, but I think some fans want a more range so that his personality isn't one thing. 

That being said, I never felt like it was disturbingly bad like Forces Tails.

So here's a theory I was throwing around on Discord:

So IDW is calling this new collection, "The IDW Collection" which is something they've only done for their TMNT and Transformers line, and that was to differentiate the stories from the classic issues which they eventually republished. So is it possible that IDW is future proofing Sonic for republishing older material? Maybe an Archie or Fleetway collection?

Fleetway seems like it would be simpler considering the mess Archie is in, but it's a nice thought.

The problem with Shadow is that the comic exaggerates his character flaws while simultaneously downplaying his redeeming qualities to the point of nonexistence. Before, Shadow tended to keep people other than his teammates at arm's length. In IDW he goes straight past taciturn and acts downright hostile, even giving Rouge the cold shoulder more often than not. While he was once a pragmatic and somewhat haughty, which sometimes caused conflicts, he was still fundamentally motivated by duty and altruism. Here his ego is in full control and he's already caused at least two disasters by refusing to listen to others and putting his pride before common sense. Basically, SEGA gave up on writing Shadow as likable or nuanced character, embraced the strawman "Ow the Edge" meme version of him, and are mandating that the comic's writers to do the same.

I love that the background is a collection of Special Stages from different games:

  • Bottom is Sonic 2's Halfpipe Highway with Blue Spheres in the back
  • Behind Metal Sonic is Mania's
  • Behind Omega is Sonic 3D Blast's Genesis Special Stages
  • Behind the Skunk Bros. & Mimic is Lost World 3DS's
  • Behind Cream, Vanilla, Cheese, & Chacola is the Sonic Simulator
  • Behind Team Chaotix is Sonic Advance's
  • I think the one behind Tangle & Whisper is Sonic Advance 3's
  • Behind the Babylon Rouges is Heroes'
  • Behind Rouge is the Sonic 1
  • I don't know what that is at the top...

See, and I'm conflicted about this. I like how they're actually giving Shadow flaws, but I feel like its' done in a way where he doesn't actually learn anything or change from the experience, so he's just stuck as a perpetual jackass with chance of changing that. At least before, he was still likable if somewhat boring.  So I'm very mixed on this new direction for him

Oh look, more Shadow talk. Guess I can trot this out.

Spoiler

Oh I noticed Shadow was in this issue to get worf effected once again And I also don't care

Like, on a three strike system of acceptance or caring, shadow probably has about a four. Reason number one its Shadow Reason number two it's post 2015/IDW Shadow Reason number three this issue is supposed to be about grounded heroines is like Amy and Cream and Reason number four as a bonus he was a part of the original solicit for this very main story but was quickly taken out on favor of Amy.

I'm reserving judgment on this issue specifically because unlike other issues it's intended to be a two-parter and then therefore not complete I already just going off of my future blanket actual storytelling stuff aside Shadow does not need to be in this issue. This was supposed to be about Beta Team Rose going Chao Racing as the A plot and Shadow had a chance to be a part of that as original intended, given the presence of the Shadow Chao from Sonic channel. But combining everything that's been wrong with him for the past 5 years with IDW's apparent inability to do backup stories, he adds nothing to this story thus far and arguably plays a small but substantiable part in weakening it. 

Here comes a thought: Why wasn't it Cream or Gemerl who spotted and chased the parka villain? They were both present in the issue in the company of Rouge and Cream's spotlight in the Zombot arc was said to carry over a bit here. And if it does have something to do with the Gizoids, then Gemerl's presence here would be more relevant.

That's honestly the strangest part; Shadow was originally going to take Amy's place, but somewhere along the lines decided to give it to Amy. But still insisted Shadow be in the issue...I have no idea why either, because yea, he really doesn't add anything to the issue...

 

Like its a small part of the book, but it really doesn't help for the people that are sick of just seeing show up and get worfed.

August 24

The scene with Shadow he hoped to get into 31 did mostly make it in-- in essence. He's not surprised with the changes he had to make.

The saddest moments of his run include Sonic finding Nicole after Sally was roboticized, Antoine getting suicide bombed by Metal Sonic, pretty much any moment with Cream in IDW, and Tangle turning into a zombo. Nicole suprisingly got to him with how powerless and thus robotic she felt about being right there when it happened, Antoine surprised Archie to the point that it affected how the rest of the arc was handled(also, his fate), Creams innocence means anything bad that happens to her is awful, and Tangle's last stand was ultimately a pointless fight with no victory.

They got the word Archie was ending around Christmas time
Panic inducing his career since he had nothing else to support his family
As a creator reboot hurt worse due to it having so many years and he grew up with it
Second rum it's more sardonic end since they had already gone through losing the old run

He tried tweeting portfolios for his friends

When idw started he offerto do the same and it so happened that most of the Archie gree got picked up

Aleah was most cut out due to losing her first major trade especially since she had credit for her work frequently get lost int he shuffle

He was honestly surprised that his return was even more asked for than the freedom Fighters


The Warp Topaz only opens portals in space, so the stuff in the annual would've been happening in that moment

He frustratingly has no idea why the Babylonians can't seem to fly. It reminds him of Jet's cool concept art compared the okay final design

Team Beta Rose outfits among others is generally down to, since they can very rarely can they deviate with approval
The wedding issue in Archie was surprising especially with Knuckles but all that came up with the no pants rule
Issue arctic Aleah reminds him of the issue in the Attic where they were eventually alright with Olympic Amy, 

Blaze kingdom got approved be sure if Sega's involving and they actually responded to a note in the script pointing out a lack of real redeemed by providing a lot of information about the technology architecture motif Imperial Palace
He was really happy and ecstatic that they got to unveil that at last 

Knuckles probably wouldn't be affected by Unleashed by human planet splitting
Shadow might be going around fighting the strongest of the Dark Gaia mostnster because that's "so deep and engaging"" for his current character

Big simply lives in a new shack with a similar locale on Sonic's World and the shack itself looks so similar because Big's carpentry skills with are simply natural to begin with.(My words, not his). That or he just picked up at least the bed when he moved("Hey Froggy look, it's a mobile home!").

Tails has multiple workshops Mystic Ruins and Central City to get away to in-between adventure and hanging with Sonic.

Beauregard doesn't exist postreboot due to them abandoning almost everything from that long era and being an expansive reference to a throwaway line in Mecha Madness(also, Aunt Lulamee in the encyclopedia). You know the one. :lol:

Sonic man was able to escape Flashman's Time Stopper because he's just that fast. See also restoring time in Generations.

He wants to see more of Knuckles and Amy in future games: a Metroidvania game with fists metal cracklin and Amy should helm a platformer puzzler focused on acrobatics, perhaps with animal companions like Lily, Chao, or Wisps to unlock things and generally being vivacious about helping people.

If he had full creative freedom to recharacterize Freedom Fighters, he concerned with their philosophy and role in a Modern Sega context. They were primarily there to give Sonic a supporting cast he simply didn't have, to the point that Tails was apparently added fairly late in Satams development.
He acknowledges that the Idw crew are there to fill in vacant roles that the game cast aren't really lately.
One of the bigger problems is with Rotor who was so similar in role but different in personality to Tails; he agrees that having them be pals would be nice, though. The others not so much, since Sally is a strong leader in a cast of  loose agents, Bunnie is unique in skillset, Nicole is simple due to associating with Sally. Antoine would need some work since he's a mildly offensive stereotype and Archie's history is gone.
He knows their inclusion could effectively be fanservice, but what they need is a purpose. that warrants their recurring inclusion.
Idw actually had a creative get together and he had five, Evan had one, and even editor Mariotte pitched something he never considered

He doesn't really like the youtube videos causing issues against Idw and himself and appreciates those who are willing to encourage proper criticism despite not really liking him.
He also sees that getting involved would be validating them and recognizes that those who really want to raise a ruckus will continue to do do.
Just the other day, he actually got an email ranting at him over hating the Freedom Fighters, shipping the Sonic and Amy, and killing off Archie characters (like Armand and Sir Connery?)

There isn't anyone else in place to watch the Master Emerald, since Knuckles 

He chose to have Sonic and Sally get back together in 30 year later due to lack of space and fans not being find of King Shadow. He was focusing on moving on to a new generation and wanted them to just be happy with little humdrum. He feels Sally's personal stake in marrying Shadow and dealing with the state of things was shortchanged.

He's fine with people making merchandise of Drogun for conventions and would even advertise it.

That's honestly the strangest part; Shadow was originally going to take Amy's place, but somewhere along the lines decided to give it to Amy. But still insisted Shadow be in the issue...I have no idea why either, because yea, he really doesn't add anything to the issue...

 

Like its a small part of the book, but it really doesn't help for the people that are sick of just seeing show up and get worfed. 

Exactly.

Probably because Sega got in the way early on and the first solicit was already going up by the time she decided to just swap him out.
