I've been really down on this series but the last 2 books feel like a comic should. The first 12 are a hell of an awful slog to get through, but I feel much more positive now. I'm really dig Eggman's swagger.

15's out.

Knew Sonic would get hit Eggman's metal batter at some point, but I didn't expect it right away. I guess Rough & Tumble are getting side-lined, too. Taking bets on whether Metal Sonic gets jealous of Sonic Metal'd later on in the arc.

The annual came out last week. Picked it up today. No Tangle & Whisper at the comic store for Free Comic Day, for some reason. Ah, well.

It's a fun little collection of filler stories. Tangle and Whisper meeting up with the Babylon Rouges was good, Blaze and Silver were pretty cute, too. Gonna be great nephew bedtime fodder.

Guess not many people here read the comics. Two issues came out this month. Sonic tapping into the Speed Force to tamp down the virus feels like a bit of a cop out. Eggman being an actual menace is still great. Charmy is presumed turned, so that's potentially neat. I'm digging these raised stakes, even though it's essentially a Sonic take on a zombie story.

I guess, but the effect being temporary makes it feel less so. Like Eggman could keep him running to exhaustion, then he'd have minutes left.

I love the comics and am definitely enjoying following them along, but it's hard to talk about their contents. Following IDW's Transformers MTMTE a few years back burnt me out on discussing plot (great at first then became nothing but Shocking Twists And Such), and I'm not exactly sure yelling "Tangle is a lesbian and I love her" every time she's on the page would really provide anything meaningful for discussion. Nonetheless, I'll make an effort!

Definitely wondering how he was going to be infected and yet still remain the protagonist, so I guess this solution works out. He was never realistically going to turn in the first issue he got it and keep him out of the spotlight; that's probably going to remain a threat driving the story forward for as long as possible, presumably coming to a head towards the end of the plotline some ways out.

Potential spoiler for future issues:

I'm very curious how you've gleaned sexual orientation from a relatively new character that doesn't talk or socialize much at all. She has a mysterious past, but no proof of any romantic relationship, from what I've read.

Are you mixing up Tangle with Whisper? Tangle has been plenty talkative in her appearances so far. Also, have you seen the way she looks at Blaze? There's no way that girl's just enamored by Cool Fiery Powers.

Yes I did. Oops.

As for actual Tangle potentially crushing on Blaze, she just seems excitable about everything she was thrust into after meeting Sonic. The offshoot comic shows more of that. Craving danger and adventure doesn't necessarily mean that she's into that kind of spelunking.

Doesn't really mean it's an invalid read of the character, though.

It's entirely possible, I suppose, but I guess I can't see any hint of romance. Compared to say, Amy getting all flushed after listening to Sonic's mantra near the beginning of the series. If it's there, it's too subtle for me to pick up.

I don't remember Tangle reacting differently to male or female characters, but I'm far from a specialist on the matter, so...
In any case, she's definitely one of my favorite character from the comic. She was great in the annual too.
