    New issue is out. There was also a Bad Guys spin off that I found out about after the fact, so I'll have to pick that up another day.

    I'm enjoying the world building and callbacks to previous games, but overall the plot was alright. Not really interested in the new character introduced, but we'll see how it goes.

    Whoever they are, they have pointed shoes and I think high-heels, as well as a relation to Rouge, who knows them. Most likely negative since they have her wrapped in a carpet under their arm. Kinda gives that away.

    They also have Sonic Heroes powers. Yellow to get them on the roof, Blue to dash away from Shadow, and Red to rip the log from the hotel and smack Shadow with it. Perhaps there's some relation?

    Most likely, it's a new character. Though I kinda want to place my bet on it being Infinite, attempting to replace the Phantom Ruby with some other powerful gemstone and requiring Rouge, the world's greatest treasure hunter, to locate one 'worthy' enough to take its place since the Phantom Ruby was shattered at the end of Sonic Forces, and making use of other, less powerful gemstones to get the job done in the mean time. More than likely not, though, as apparently SEGA don't want Infinite used.

    Working on my art!
    I was thinking it might be Emerl, as it has all the powers of the others

    These are some really good observations. They do seem to be chasing an Infinity Stones idea, they may be taking a more structured universe seriously now. Hm. I'm starting to bank more on the IDW characters and their fleshed out world being the future of Sonic.
     
  5. The best part about this arc is that it seems like Rouge, Amy, and Cream are gonna be the main focus of it, and I'm all for that shit. Obviously, Sonic might be coming in later, but I'm very glad Evan seems willing to tell a story without him being the primary POV character as Sega mandates.

    So the Bad Guys comic
    is bringing back Power Cores from Sonic Heroes:

    Which is interesting since, as I noted earlier in the thread:

    Think it might be cross-story plot-lines in play?

    I recently checked out volume 1 of the comic from my library to read it for the first time. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but I'm gonna keep reading more.
     
  10. The first arc is more or less just standard Sonic fare, so its nothing really special.

    Things don't start to escalate until the second arc. First arc is only about 12 issues are so, which translates to three volumes.

    Bad Guys #2 is out.

    Looks like it is Dr. Starline in Sonic the Hedgehog #33, using a new construction called the Tricore. The Tricore could possibly fall into the hands of another, but Dr. Starline is the most likely user for it.

    It's an interesting idea, a character able to use all three 'aspects' in Sonic's World, so I'll be interested in seeing how they go about it. Most likely he'll need to keep recharging the core, and Zavok's suggesting he move beyond trying to be Robotnik might put him in that third party foe that we would have thought the Deadly Six could fulfil: constantly raiding Robotnik's supplies for Cores to resupply the Tricore while trying to deal with the supersonic hedgehogs that cause Robotnik so much headache.[/quote]
