Jennifer Hernandez's pencil work isn't bad. She did work on the Archie comic and it looks fine. The big let down is the coloring. It's really flat and boring.

The story with Knuckles, and new antagonists, has a short battle ultimately solved with words. That felt really strange. Their Team Rocket bit and Sonic & Knuckles' reaction was pretty funny, though.

Oh yay, Sonic mentions the Hooligans in issue 3. Considering he was comparing them to Rough and Tumble who are also mercenaries, if it's anything like the Archie series that hopefully means that Nack/Fang, Bean, and Bark are not dead and still canon.

If they come back though I wonder what Nack will be called now? They kept calling him Nack because Sega probably wasn't arsed enough to force them to change names, but with a clean slate they could go for Fang now.

While good it's done well, another variant? I bought 3 when I was in London this weekend and there was one left on the shelf I didn't get, plus a fifth they didn't have... and that doesn't even count the multiple con-exclusive ones!

(Sidernote on the fast sellout - indeed, I bought several of #1 but I'm not going to be regularly buying the comic.)


It's not that uncommon for reprints of comic book issues to have new covers. It's an easy way to figure out if you have a first, second, third printing of something. And yes, complete collectors will feel the urge to buy issue after issue even if they already have seven copies of it. The most current example I can think of is the latest issues of Amazing Spider-Man, which have had multiple printings of recent issues, each with their own unique cover.

Also, since we're on the subject, seems Issue 1 is getting a third printing, and that issues 2 and 3 are also getting second printings. Guess the momentum behind this comic isn't coming to a screeching halt anytime soon (ohoho momentum)

I wonder how stock at stores actually are though. I know the guy who runs my comic shop was cool and ordered 10 copies of number 1 since I wanted the 1 in 10 Retailer Incentive cover, but he still has copies on the wall. So I wonder if other stores also have leftovers or not.

Her Fan Characters as background citizens are a nice touch. Though she kinda went overboard on that one specific panel

It is! Even more so because the generic townspeople, based on the basic as can be avatar creator, are so putrid to look at. If creators can keep injecting their OCs can breathe some life into this empty feeling world, I'm all for it.

They could go ahead and create a contest to have their FC/Avatar show up in the upcoming issue as a background character, but you have to give out cash prizes as well.

I hope everybody isn't too busy being hyped by Mania Plus to read today's issue.
Tangle is cool. I like her. She's cool.
Also Blaze is back. That's pretty cool too.

edit:eggman is back too, oh no

Blaze always reminds me of why I don't believe Izuka's comments about the two worlds: he's already changed a character from a parallel world to a different time period and back, so I'm expecting much the same with Classic Sonic.

Regardless, I have to wonder if Robotnik is the actual target of all these attacks, and the attacks are attempts at locating him since he appears to have holed up in a random village out of sight...

Tangle was a lot of fun. She kinda has Sonic's cockiness without so much of the worldliness. It's always good to have more pyrokinetic pussycat princess in Sonic. Neat that she'll be sticking around, at least for a while. Evan does great expressions, and Matt does great colors. Does IDW not credit ink, or do the pencilers do ink, too?

The only thing I'm not 100% on with Evan is the way he (she?) Draws mouths. I can't put my finger on it but I get a lot of DreamWorks face vibes. But overall it's great. Good issue, I like Tangle and it's very interesting that they made Blaze a part of this as early as they did (Archie was very slow at adapting new characters, Shadow, Blaze, Rouge, Omega, Big, and Cream were uses sparingly for the longest time).

It's still strange in a way. The writer's the same and there's a lot of staff overlap but this does feel unique to Archie so far. I'm glad it's found its own identity

Evan is female, just a headsup.

I thought so, I must have forgot.
