I'm thinking it's more to do with the rights to her character. We know Ian has approached Chris Senn(even though he said it *wasn't* Tiara related). When I initially asked Ian if Tiara can be used he said something like "No, but know Chris Senn is a stand up guy.".

 

I'm pretty sure Senn has said SEGA does own all the material related to X-Treme, including Tiara, so it's most likely SEGA just doesn't want X-Treme brought up because it was a canceled game. The only reason we probably got Honey at all is because SEGA recognized her as an official character with the HD re-release of Fighters. It is a shame, because it would be interesting to see Tiara appear in some official media and see what kind of mileage they can get out of her, but I guess there's no helping it.

 

 

No basis at all for this, but I'd wager that there might be two reasons

 

- Can't use Tiara because SEGA doesnt want X-Treme dredged up again

- Can't tell us why because someone, maybe the new editor, finally went up to him and said "don't you think you reveal too much of the inner workings here?"

 

I believe Flynn's stated something along the lines that whenever he says something, fans hold him to it. Such as when he was mostly sure Scourge and Shard were still on the table but then he found out they weren't. It's just a lot easier to not comment rather than to get fans' hopes up and just watch them get dashed later, which is something that's happened repeatedly in this thread alone, I can't imagine how it is on his own forum. It is also possible editorial's told him to not comment either, so it's probably a combination.

See, problem is, Senn told me personally that all the X-Treme rights and material are SEGA's. At most there might be some confusion because some stuff we thought for years was X-Treme (like the little gnomes or the two robot characters) was Senn's stuff he put in just to test engines.

Ugh. I seriously don't like James Fry's work. Seriously wonder why they didn't get Tracey, Ben, Bates, or Steven Butler. James Fry's work/Sonic style is always so wonky.

On another note, why didn't he draw the ice cream that Chip loves in Unleashed? I thought the whole reason it was so loved was due to how nice and creative it was. Here, it's sort of just a generic ice cream.

Actually, I will admit I like how he drew Rotor in these panels, at least.

Oh yeah, I'm guessing this is just before Sally and co. return from Isolated Island since they don't seem to be around.

On that note, this makes me wonder where Spark of Life's opening scene takes place in accordance to these stories (the Sky Patrol scenes).

Possibly, it takes place at the tail end of Champions, between the time it takes Sonic and the team to arrive back from the tournament, the sky patrol has been attacked. Then maybe they travelled to Isolated Island after informing Sonic of their mission, which also explains how Sonic knew Tails was away with Sally in Into the Unknown.

You know, the more I see it, the more the fact that only Amy knows the Mystic Melody when in SA2 she was the only one of the heroes who didn't still kinda irks me a bit.

The fact that they can circumvent ever mentioning the Chaotix despite playing key roles in two events mentioned there doesn't irk me, it's funny.

Fry's work is at least a bit more fluid and expressive and here than pre reboot, where it was kinda stiff and had tons of humanoid type characters. There's even a few nice dynamic poses here. Still not the best artists here, but he's way better than some of them during the pre-Ian era.

yeah since I wasn't subscribed to any of the other comics besides the regular issues and it seemed like at some point down the line I was likely going to collect the variants in the future I went ahead and got the deluxe subscription package deal so going to see how that works out.maybe once I get all the variants and main issues I might take a picture to show what it looks like

 

it also means that I should be able to get a few images up for the super sonic magazine and battle issues when they come out as well

Honestly I have more problems with the fact Amy learned the Melody off panel rather than develop that throughout Waves of Change.

 

I love Ian but I feel he really dropped the ball on that plot point.

well i really liked how Sonic does that Mystic melody at SA2 .. its like Link with the ocarina :D heheh

i would have loved if he could learn it too at this comic..

 

but maybe Ian though Amy needed to be more helpful than just smash enemies with the hammer (?)

Could also be because she's a female, a maiden if you will....I wouldn't say she's a pure-hearted maiden like Tikal or Coral, but she's close enough to one.

 

I would also assume cause Amy has some sort of magic ability as well like her ability to "POOF" her Hammer out of thin air and her Tarot Card reading ability that lured her to Sonic in the first place.
