A new thread demands a new comic and this one is a doozy! In the forbidden land of ponies, a speedy, blue threat is attacking everyone! And you know who it is! But why are they doing it? Let’s find out in Learning with Pibby Glitch Battles!
>Question: IDW has given itself a year to turn things around. Will it be able to do so? If not, then how long will it last? What will happen to Sonic comics? It's not looking good. I give it 8 months, but I think they'll do a nice sendoff. I expect Sega will get another publisher and go post-Frontiers, but allow some of the IDW characters to return >Sonic and the Freedom Fighters Note: Whatever you do, don’t call Tails a “freak.” Someone will and they’re going to regret it. Oh my! >>450408 lmao, it's a Punished Mordecai >>450410 >I'm highly qualified to post this! I'm just as lost as you are. I don't even know what a pibby is ;_;
>>450411 >Sonic confirmed to be a 4chan mod. I see our schizo janny was extra salty about Tails today! >>450418 That's the spirit Sonic, if you kill her we'll get our own board! >>450419 lmao, it looks like he's chubbing up >>450420 I recognize Mordecai and Spongebob at least! >>450423 I guess the pink one is pibby? >>450424 >I'm skeptical on that considering the way they've handled characters from past franchises. Still no Sticks. Yeah, they're bizarrely hardline on boxing characters into specific continuities
>>450430 >Sonic now has one glowing eye or half of a monoeye. It's a really odd look >>450433 She's turning them into Sega Master System boxart! >>450434 >They were extra pathetic today. I almost feel bad for him. Imagine being that salty about a blue rat. Still, glad to see no one gave him much attention
>>450442 And that is it for now! I probably won't post any more pages unless they pop up on the DA main page. >>450441 >Still, glad to see no one gave him much attention Yeah and I'm willing to assume the ones that did reply to him where just him as well.
>>450436 Wow, they're really pulling in characters at random. I'd have picked her green twink teammate personally! >>450439 >school of friendship lmao >>450443 Oh no, it's that creature from those YouTube Kids videos! >Yeah and I'm willing to assume the ones that did reply to him where just him as well. It's just sad he has to resort to sockpuppeting since no one else will talk to him. I think he got one genuine reply, but that anon disengaged once they realized who it was
>>450444 >It's just sad he has to resort to sockpuppeting since no one else will talk to him. I think he got one genuine reply, but that anon disengaged once they realized who it was It's the one thing that really gets me. I can understand shitposters because they want attention so they'll do whatever they can to maximize it. Except this guy.
>>450445 Yeah, the whole point of acquiring (you)s is that they come from someone else. I just don't get it at all. Thing is, I'd be happy to engage with him if he'd just drop the shitposting. It's pretty clear he could do with some positive engagement
>>450452 Ha! My master plan's™ quite different! Seriously though, there's a whole set of comics by missphase where Sonic's a massive bimbo with huge tits. Not my thing obviously, but the art's fantastic
>>450455 Same, but for himbos. They're supposed to be carefree and fun, not drooling idiots. Interestingly, this artist ranges from slutty fun to ultra-slut. I might storytime some of them over on pco. Here's one that's technically Sonknux: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/71166867 >>450456 >Poppy Playtime So that's what it is! >>450461 Yeah, we're getting close to one of his meltdowns. I remember he had one a while back on /sthg/ where he was posting for over 24 hours straight. It'd be impressive if it weren't so pathetic
>>450461 I do wonder if that's them covering their ass or if another mod did come by and get rid of their stuff. >>450462 >https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/71166867 Not bad. Doesn't look like Sonic is 50% silicon injections.
Archie Ride update: I've sourced nice quality copies of all the Mega Man comics, as well as another short Mega Man series with art by none other than Spaz! Might also track down a copy of that short-lived NiGHTS into Dreams comic as well >>450463 >I do wonder if that's them covering their ass or if another mod did come by and get rid of their stuff. I'm glad it wasn't just me thinking that >Not bad. Doesn't look like Sonic is 50% silicon injections. I'll add it to the list!
Archie Ride update: That's the Boom comics done. Now I've just got to hunt down the FCBD scans and the Sonic Digest stories, and sort through the rest of the main Sonic stories. Still, well over halfway now! >>450467 Clearly we have to kidnap him! >>450472 Some great comics today, especially the first one. I'm surprised the Stepping on Shadows artist did more comics.v I tried to look through their twitter for comics but there's 115 thousand tweets ;_; >Question: How much of a threat should Metal Sonic be? I think any character should be able to defeat any other character under the right circumstances. For Metal, it should be tough for Knuckles or Shadow to defeat him, but they should be able to do it since they've sparred with Sonic and can anticipate Metal's movements. Tails could probably beat him with the right tech and subterfuge, but on in a direct battle
>Sonic and the Freedom Fighters Note: Chaos can talk, grant power, and appear anywhere he wants. He’s also always very angry and has no problem raining down wrath when he wants to. The real question is if he's hot. No one's gonna worship him is his abs are mid! Seriously though, I like the idea of Chaos being a more active participant in the story instead of just being a kaju Sonic has to defeat >>450473 Clearly that means we need more Sonadow comics!
>>450475 >They usually fuck off for a while and then come back later. He usually goes for a day and then has to finally sleep. I do wonder if he gets banned by the other mods, since he almost certainly uses a different ip for his janny work >Nice! Surely your ban is up. I was a 3 day ban so 9 hours to go! It's probably for the best since there's a Swat Katz thread up and it's a toss up whether I'd get banned for posting Callie or posting T-Bone and Razor shirtless
>>450480 This artist draws her with a more realistic bat nose. The darker skin is probably from the terrible lighting in the GameCube and PC ports that made Rouge and Knuckles' muzzles look darker. As for the outfit, I think both Amy and Rouge could've used a redesign
>>450482 >Posted in the main thread. Thanks! >There is nothing wrong with choco-Rouge. Maybe change the nose back. The nose is a bit much. Clearly the only way to determine which Rouge is best is to have one of every color in the comic. Imagine, an entire army of Rouges!
>>450496 I suspect they fuckd up their cloudflare shit again, like they did a few days ago when they introduced the even shittier version of the captcha. I'm getting "Please enable Cookies and reload the page." when I visit https://4chan.org/ >>450501 You'd run it all over wifi, so it's the same frequency as microwaves!
Well /co/cksluts, since 4chan's still down let's do a very special ~after dark~! It's vaguely Sonic-related! It's Incomplete! It's Rad Ratt by Logan Force!
>Whats up tubbers?! It's Rad Ratt the coolest Sonic OC ever! Whats so cool about me you ask? Well I have a magic fidget spinner and I vape for starters. Read about me and my friends doing cool stuff like playing with slime, making youtube vids, and fighting robutts. Don't forget to smash that sub button!

https://www.deviantart.com/mariyahthehedgehog12 For Thirstposter, another Sonic adjacent comic called Carnation Obstastion. There's a quite a bit of pages and there seems to be some body horror elements and corruption.
>>450547 DILF Knuckles best Knuckles! >>450550 They said the thing, but with a fun twist! I've mentioned it before, but I love the fight choreography in this. It'll probably sound facetious, but everything feels much more grounded when there's actual backgrounds instead of voids of gradient colors >>450551 >handholding And now they're married! >>450554 Here's a thought, maybe say who you actually are? If anyone should understand not recognizing hedgehogs it's Amy >>450561 I'm so glad this comic came back!
>>450577 Who would be the Cammy? I can't help but think half the girls could be replaced with Sally. >>450578 Is he related to Luke? From Streets? Good thing I snagged this before my plugin stopped working on TwiX.
Of course Amy is very much like Sakura if you play up her tomboyish fighter side a bit. Then again Sonic is no way like Ryu in terms of personality but main character focus as well as a bunch of different evil versions and rivals counter that difference.
>>450580 Steven Butler's Sally can be Cammy since she has the legs for it. >Is he related to Luke? I thought he was the fan name for the default avatar from Street Fighter 6 >>450581 I'm afraid my knowledge only covers the first few games and the frankly underrated live action movie
>>450600 I love the dead-eyed stare in the robot's art >>450602 At least she has built-in airbags! >>450603 Lots of odd stuff in the threads lately. We got drawanon art in the old thread after today's one started, our janny deleting a not even lewd picture of Sonic, along with the post criticizing him, and even deleting a post about the movie. The movie post deletion was especially weird since it wasn't even off topic
>>450605 Yeah, I never directly reference the jannies and their dumb decisions now. I'm also a lot more careful about what sort of suggestive art I post (aside from the one that got me banned). Pic related's completely sfw with absolutely no bulges or butts, but you just know it'd never fly over there
>>450612 I'm still salty that two One Piece threads were allowed to stay up for over a day. They probably weren't even deleted and only archived when they hit bump limit. The coomer threads just make the bias against our threads more obvious but what really gets me is how horrible the moderation on that board is overall. So many bait and off topic threads go under the radar and if a couple of our characters kiss too much then it gets removed or Rotor is deleted even though it's obviously not posted by Rotor-anon.
>>450613 Yeah, I'm not sure what's worse: The blatant favoritism for their own interests, the clear bias against our threads, or the general indifference to everything else. The hatred towards Rotor-bro's particularly bad. /co/ needs more chill posters like him to balance out all the unhinged schizos. I never have trouble talking to him on the other boards so it's just a /co/ janny. >Rotor is deleted even though it's obviously not posted by Rotor-anon I used to have posts deleted whenever Rotor-bro would post despite us clearly having different IPs and not posting Rotor images. At some point the janny realized there's more than one anon that likes to talk about Mobian dudes so at least we know they're capable of learning. I still find it funny whenever he deletes one of the comic pages you post mid-storytime. That level of seething obsession reminds me of Barneyfag
In French there is an expression that say "ça ou pisser dans un violon..." meaning "you might as well take a piss in a cello" to convey the idea that the action you are doing is completely useless and pointless.
Anyway, I don't think it will make any difference, especially with the speical kind of moderation we have, but I reported for spamming and flooding. Guess it qualify, though I don't know if I should fill in too for "trolling outside of /b/" or "this post is extremely low quality".
Unless I a mistaken, the poster is really trying to get a rise out of anyone else and replying to him is exactly what he want, but I don't know what else to do aside ignoring his post... Feel free to tell me if you have a better idea.
>>450610 At this point, we just have to assume that Janny hate Sonic: https://boards.4channel.org/co/thread/138759002/138758967 (to be clear, minus the explicit showcase of genital on a SFW board, I have no issue with that kind of comic being posted Just wish our story time thread had the same leeway)
>>450619 The fancy term would be a Sisyphean task, but I prefer "pushing shit uphill." Yeah, who knows if it does anything but I still report things. I generally pick whatever I think fits best. After all, it's their job to clean it up! >Unless I a mistaken, the poster is really trying to get a rise out of anyone else and replying to him is exactly what he want, but I don't know what else to do aside ignoring his post... Feel free to tell me if you have a better idea. I generally try to say something positive to the person getting trolled, or to the ones taking the bait >>450620 He totally does. Yeah, that one was just straight (lol) up porn. If it was a regular anthro comic I wouldn't mind it. Kinda surprised it stayed up that long, the jannies seem to hate anything anthro on /co/. We can't even talk about Out of Placers anymore
>>450619 Reporting shitposting in our threads seem to have a 50/50 chance of getting it deleted so it's not entirely a waste of time. The schizo even revealed what his posts got deleted for and that was for trolling so when he goes all out then you can use that. >>450620 >https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/138759002 I've seen that anon post those comics quite a bit. Often gets the whole thing posted and it stays up. Not sure if the janny doesn't care or likes it. No way those threads go that long without it getting reported. >>450622 >I generally try to say something positive to the person getting trolled, or to the ones taking the bait I ignore everyone that's part of that conversation, assuming it's all the schizo replying to himself and trying to get someone to join in. >We can't even talk about Out of Placers anymore Whenever the moderation gets extra retarded, I think that we can at least have threads on /co/.
>>450625 >The schizo even revealed what his posts got deleted for and that was for trolling so when he goes all out then you can use that. When I think it's him I usually go for the "this post is extremely low quality" option since I want him to know his work is mid >>450625 >I ignore everyone that's part of that conversation, assuming it's all the schizo replying to himself and trying to get someone to join in. Probably the best option >Whenever the moderation gets extra retarded, I think that we can at least have threads on /co/. Yeah, it was a bit touch and go there when he was autosaging Sonic threads and deleting every post with a link to the website. I guess we could do the threads on /trash/ if things get too bad, but there's no way we could keep a thread up 24/7. I'm just glad we've got here to post
>>450642 Sucks that it had to be censored, but I think you made the right choice >>450643 No dialogue, but I've got 291 and 292! I've also got the cover for 293 but I don't think they ever got to pencils for that one
>>450431 >Yeah, they're bizarrely hardline on boxing characters into specific continuities >>450424 >I'm skeptical on that considering the way they've handled characters from past franchises I think this is different this time. they played over-cautious before because the ownership was in legal limbo, but after Archie, I think they learned their lesson and made it clear any new one was fully belonging to Sega.
So we will be more likely to see OG IDW Sonic characters than before.
>>450649 I hope that's the case, since I'd like to see more of Rough and Tumble. That said, they pretty much treat Cream like a Sonic X exclusive character >>450650 Canonically the emeralds have their own will, and while it's never been officially explained, my headcanon is that once someone wins/proves themselves worthy to an emerald in the special zone they can send it there and call it back. After a while, the emeralds always go back to the special zone, generally once they've served their purpose.
>>450649 >I think this is different this time. they played over-cautious before because the ownership was in legal limbo, but after Archie, I think they learned their lesson and made it clear any new one was fully belonging to Sega. And yet Sticks hasn't been introduced in the comics despite being name dropped in Frontiers. I'm just way too skeptical to think Sega has actually changed. Even all their current moves is super safe and stripped down considering what they could be doing. I will be pleasantly surprised if Sticks makes some kind of appearance in that 900th Adventure issue. That's the most likely chance she has. Otherwise, I'll believe it when I see it. >>450650 It always seemed like they get absorbed into the body. Maybe can be removed from the person and given. There's also Sonic Unleashed and the SUCC he gets that extracts the chaos emeralds from his body. It's one of those poorly explained things that can have all variations in how they act. >>450651 That makes more sense personality-wise. >>450652 I always play it safe and even then I'll get surprised from something getting deleted.
>>450654 > I will be pleasantly surprised if Sticks makes some kind of appearance in that 900th Adventure issue. That'll be the real test of Sega's new direction. It's all hot air until they actually demonstrate their willingness to include Sticks in something other than Sonic Channel art and Olympics games. My expectations for the "big" 900th adventure are extremely low, to the point where I genuinely think it'll be more disappointing than #50. >It always seemed like they get absorbed into the body. Yeah, I can see that. But in SA2 Sonic and Shadow go super with one set of emeralds. In 06 Sonic shares his superness with Shadow and Silver at least. Knuckles was able to de-super Sonic through his connection with the ME, but for the SUCC, I assumed Eggman had built a device that can disrupt someone's connection to the emeralds, causing them to de-super and for the emeralds to drop out of the special zone. I wish they'd just explain all this stuff! It's probably for the best though, Iizuka would probably come up with something mega stupid >I always play it safe and even then I'll get surprised from something getting deleted. Ultimately, that's all we can do
>>450659 Haha, knowing smile! Considering it's happened in several games, you'd think more fanworks would've focused on the implications of bestowing super forms on others versus just using the emeralds at the same time. Personally, I think a bestowed form should put more stress on the one gifting the powers, but with the benefit that they can empower people that might not be able to sustain their own super form.
We also haven't had any distinction between the super forms derived from the Master Emerald versus the Chaos Emeralds. I'd imagine the ME's super forms would be more about balancing and absorbing energy. A ME-based Super Knuckles wouldn't be as powerful as Super Sonic, but would be able to absorb his attacks and redirect the energy back at him. I'd also make it require regular contact with the ME, since regular super forms require collecting seven emeralds (and because Mecha Sonic had to keep recharging in his fight with Knuckles)
Not suggesting you should use these ideas in your comic though, I'm just trying to work out what I want to do with them. I've been thinking about a super form based on the Time Stones, where it manipulates time/causality instead of space like the emeralds, but time powers are inherently OP so it's tricky.
>>450661 I've been thinking of a foundation for the rules with chaos energy and what the emeralds are all capable of and then treat it like some kind of evolution or skill tree where things can be built upon it later on down the road. That way a new addition doesn't seem random. Like elemental based chaos energy. I remember seeing someone imaging chaos emeralds with elemental properties.
>>450662 Same. I've been thinking of it in terms of string theory, where gravity's comparatively weak to the other forces because it "leaks" out through extra dimensions. My idea would be that chaos energy is all that extra gravitational energy, which is why it can warp space and time. Different people can innately use it for different things, like Tails and Rouge using it to fly by somewhat counteracting gravity. There's no way they could naturally fly with tails or wings that small. Sonic obviously uses it to warp spacetime around himself, making time move more quickly for him. Knuckles increases his strength by manipulating inertia, putting more behind his punches. Actually, they all manipulate inertia, which is how they never seem to get that injured from falls or battles. All this would be second nature to them, but they probably wouldn't be consciously aware they're using chaos energy. I plan on having Gerald be the first to formally study chaos energy in a scientific way
Still not sure how to handle magic users, but elemental based chaos energy would be a good way to do it. I do like the idea of a skill tree, where characters learn how to manipulate it in new ways throughout the story
>>450659 >I also buy into the idea of the super forms being shared. I also subscribe to this. As if the Chaos Emerald were more like a way for the body to unlock access to the chaos energy that imbues the special zone, Same way the bodies of Flickies and other mobinies can be used to channel that energy and power Badnicks. >>450661 >We also haven't had any distinction between the super forms derived from the Master Emerald versus the Chaos Emeralds. Better to keep it simple: the ME allow to access the Hyperform, that's what it does, compared to the CE.
>>450665 >I also subscribe to this. As if the Chaos Emerald were more like a way for the body to unlock access to the chaos energy that imbues the special zone, Same way the bodies of Flickies and other mobinies can be used to channel that energy and power Badnicks. Yeah, I was thinking about it that way too. Everyone can already access some amount of chaos energy (some more than others), but the emeralds give them a much bigger pipe. I also think the badniks are just piggybacking on the mobini's connection to the special zone/chaos force to power themselves. >Better to keep it simple: the ME allow to access the Hyperform, that's what it does, compared to the CE. Yeah, I'm planning on just having super forms from the CE and maybe the time stones, then a powerup if the ME helps. I was just trying to work out what to do with Mecha Sonic and Ix using the ME.
Stumbled upon this, in case you hadn't this one on your backlog: https://www.deviantart.com/pinkdarkrose/ (only 81 workart, easy to skim through it) Several one shot strips and 3 failed attempt at starting a comic, none of them goes beyond 4 page. Maybe for a "Various stories" thread?
No, I hate when series go too 'in-depth' about explaining how people do what they do, it ruins everything by introducing such autism. When martial arts series handwave everyone being able to naturally train to get super strong because Ki/Chakra exists that is about the absolute limit.
Sonic is fast, knuckles is strong and can glide, tails and rogue can fly despite it being physically impossible. Its an explicitly cartoonish adventure universe, that's good enough. There doesn't need to be some bullshit explanation linking all these different things together.
>>450669 That's what I'm hoping for! Most of the characters won't realize that's where their power's coming from until the SA2 arc, so I'm hoping it will lead to some shonen-tier rule exploitation. And if you think that's needlessly detailed, I've already found a paper that perfectly describes constructing the ARK. I fully expect readers to do homework between pages of Sonic and Knuckles plapping! https://arxiv.org/abs/2302.12353
>>450670 >>450671 It depends on how it's done and who it appeals to and there's a good enough chunk of detail autists in the Sonic fandom that would dig some overly complicated and detailed stuff. However, you can also keep it brief and stick to summarized explanations that can be a few sentences then allow for the visuals to do the rest. >>450674 It shouldn't be a surprise but I don't like reading one thing too much or spending a lot of time pouring over every detail. But that's just me and that's because I do so much stuff that my interests are all over the place. But if I was obsessed with something then I would no doubt love having endless information to go over and think about.
>>450677 >I can't be only one who doesn't give a single fuck about bumblecast right? >It's already annoying enough to see that one faggot shill it hard in /sthg/ I'm assuming you mean this? Looks like mentioning /sthg/ struck a cord with them. >>450678 You might be referring to the Antoine image post that got deleted and then another one with the same image was posted. https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/138788047/#138799947 https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/138788047/#138800255
>>450680 This is my post that got deleted https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/138788047/#q138801100 >mentioning /sthg/ But /sthg/ has been mentioned before quite a few times, why would this time get my post deleted? I can only assume the jannies are just that braindead
>>450675 >But if I was obsessed with something then I would no doubt love having endless information to go over and think about. And that's the drawback of randomly hyperfixating on things! Instead of actually sitting down and writing out my script I just end up reading a bunch of random things >>450681 You did say faggot, and technically it's a no no word on 4chan, even if it's (almost) never enforced >>450683 I think it's more to do with how cranky our special friend is >>450693 B-but that's technically not Rotor! >>450694 Nice! >>450696 I try not to worry about stuff like that. Would be interesting if large companies had to disclose how their algorithms work, and the reasons behind taking down content
>>450697 >You did say faggot, and technically it's a no no word on 4chan, even if it's (almost) never enforced https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/faggot/ Guess I managed to hit the 0.0000001% chance of getting deleted, but if that's the case why no warning? Almost like the jannie is just a vindictive asshole lol
>>450697 >And that's the drawback of randomly hyperfixating on things! Instead of actually sitting down and writing out my script I just end up reading a bunch of random things Treat the story like a puzzle. Work on the corners (overall story idea) and then work your way inward. Get the broad stuff out of the way first and then you'll be able to put in the smaller stuff. I've gone through so many versions of stories, especially for Sonic, before settling on one thing. If I started the series months before then it would've been completely different. >>450698 >why no warning? It's to get around having to explain all the petty deletions. That's why you'll almost never see someone get banned for more than 3 days. Anymore and you get to submit a response and a mod or admin looks into it.
>>450707 >Question: If a comic we haven’t covered is slowly updating (like one page every week or less), how much should I wait to storytime it? Should I wait as long as possible or until a small chunk of pages are done to start and then have updates in future threads? Considering pacing is normal, what’s a good number of pages? At least a full chapter should be done, but if it doesn't look like the chapter is going to end anytime soon, or like it's no structured with chapter, 50 pages? if it goes on hiatus or it look like the artist has completely changed interest, I am less sure. Is 1 year without update too long before doing that comic, or is 6 month too short?
>Despite Sally being a prodigy when it comes to using chaos energy, she hasn’t had that much training and instead focused on creating weapons. This has stunted her growth in other areas. Knuckles doesn’t have that problem. Thanks to intense training and practice for several years, he is more versatile even if he can’t mold chaos energy like she can. Ah, the old DXTvsSTR debate...
>>450708 >At least a full chapter should be done, but if it doesn't look like the chapter is going to end anytime soon, or like it's no structured with chapter, 50 pages? if it goes on hiatus or it look like the artist has completely changed interest, I am less sure. Is 1 year without update too long before doing that comic, or is 6 month too short? There are some comics that will keep putting out a page ever week or one page ever two weeks or close to a month. Unless the artist makes it known what their plans are, it's hard to pick a good time to post what's been done. >Ah, the old DEXTvsSTR debate... Like subclasses or stat trees for the same class. Sally has high stats and stacking skill points in fewer spots. Knuckles is more spread out and has more skills in various trees.
>>450709 >There are some comics that will keep putting out a page ever week or one page ever two weeks or close to a month. Speaking of, b1uewhirlwind just released a new page. That one will be a pleaser, once it is done.
We have a comic set in the Archieverse! The artist has gotten down Yardley’s art style! And Lien-Da is the main villain! But there’s a catch. From the artist that gave us Shadow and Amy’s Family, this is The Arrivals!
>>450752 I think what really gets me is that they show a sliver of hope with everyone getting their minds back at the end, only for them to pull a "lulNOPE" and have Nicole erase their minds anyway the instant they go to sleep, and turn Tails and Amy back into babies - with the implication that she may very well NEVER let them grow up. Ironically, only Shadow and Lien-Da are left more or less fine at the end of all this, even with Lien-Da stuck as a baby, and I'm not sure the former EVEN KNOWS what Nicole has done.
It's a level of almost violating horror that I haven't quite felt since Happy Days in Eternal Tails. Except where that was played for the horror scenario it actually is, this is obviously someone's fetish.
>>450713 >Why is barely anyone claiming the females? You have already claimed Sally >Chaos energy is naturally neutral but its energy can positively or negatively affect a person depending on their emotions. Even a hero can be corrupted if they allow their anger to get amplified by chaos energy. I am sure this info will be of no consequence at all. >>450714 Ooooh, we are doing this anyway?
>>450714 I remember this one! I was going to storytime it for an ~after dark~ but didn't want to get banned. If you ignore all the fetish stuff, it reads and looks like an Archie comic. The characterization's accurate, and the twists and turns of the plot are just what you'd expect from an early Flynn story >>450719 Lien-Da is just hilarious in this and I won't be convinced otherwise. I like to think she's just gone baby-crazy and is coping in the most Lien-Da way possible >>450731 That is a good line >>450735 lmao, that suit! >>450736 Could easily be a robot from Sonic X >>450737 That chao thing is genuinely horrifying >>450743 sigh >>450745 >What a twist! I do like how it builds on the twist that Tails had planned to be captured. I just wish it wasn't so fetish-centric. >>450747 This comic is so fucked up. What I find fascinating is how clearly the original continuity shines through the fetishistic lens. Most comics like this just use a canon and its characters as generic backdrop and templates to act out their fetish, but this one goes to the trouble of fully integrating the fetish into the world, (mostly) preserving the characters and setting. It's horrifying, but it's such a well executed nightmare I find it genuinely fascinating.
>>450758 If I had access to the pages without going to /sthg/ then I would do it. I did issue 50 since the first one was a mess and then the thread archived. That was pretty fun even if that issue was a disappointment.
>>450757 I like that they can't stand our threads for too long since our regulars actually enjoy talking about Sonic >>450758 They've been shitposting and arguing for so long they've become physically unable to perform the most basic storytime. /sthg/ isn't too bad in the quiet hours, but I rarely post or even read those threads >>450759 That's what's so interesting. They could easily write and draw a fancomic that'd be a massive hit, or even do official Sonic comics but instead choose to make stuff like this instead. It's maddening! >>450760 It was equally funny and sad you had to step in and do it. I mostly just get the issues from TKA, but they're only up to #60
>>450761 Normally it's storytimed by someone else before I even knew it was out. >>450762 >I like that they can't stand our threads for too long since our regulars actually enjoy talking about Sonic Probably a good thing it was just a random bunch of tumblr comics. Sometimes I wish some would come in, like what they see, and be nice additions to the regular group. But we've had raids a few times and no matter what there's not any interest. >That's what's so interesting. They could easily write and draw a fancomic that'd be a massive hit, or even do official Sonic comics but instead choose to make stuff like this instead. It's maddening! All I can say is at least they're doing what makes them happy but it is a shame.
>>450763 >Sometimes I wish some would come in, like what they see, and be nice additions to the regular group. I think a few of our regulars posted there at one point I used to post there too, but most people in /sthg/ genuinely seem to prefer arguing with one another than actually discussing Sonic, let alone Sonic comics >All I can say is at least they're doing what makes them happy but it is a shame. Yeah, it's nice to see how much fun they're having with it, but from a purely selfish standpoint I wish they'd just do non-fetish comics
>>450746 What really fucks me is the "good intentions" she has behind the whole thing, trying to give them all a happy life without the hardships they've been put through while acting as a surrogate mother. Makes me wonder what's going to happen when they grow up, this is some weird kind of dread that only a fetish comic could create.
>>450765 I think it works pretty well having Nicole be the inadvertent villain since she's an AI. Allowing them a second chance at the childhood that was stolen from them is an act of kindness from a solely logical standpoint. What she doesn't realize is she's erasing their personhood and denying them the good memories they formed. You could say she's throwing the baby out with the bathwater, hew hew. Totally agree that these fetish comics do existential horror way better than regular horror, even if it's not intentional
>>450768 Not surprised. Imagine if you made a comic based on your fetish and it had an unintended implication that others noticed. To you it's fine but to others it isn't. Even if you agree that it doesn't look good you might want to mitigate how bad it looks. Of course I don't know what was actually said and I'm fine being blissfully unaware because I saved the pages without looking at the comments. I'm not going to agree with the artist but I always try to understand what that person is thinking and if it's a common mindset in its base form.
>>450782 >Should IDW take more inspiration from fan works (not straight up copying) or should they keep doing their own thing (and preferably do it better)? Well, seeing how almost direct the pipleine is between being a fan-artist and actuallt getting to work for Sega licensed comic, I'd say the influence is almost inevitable.
>>450804 Yeah something like a new issue waiting room thread. It's just that I never know when a new issue comes out because I don't keep up with that. Someone else would have to do it, preferably using the cover for the new issue (always provided early from artists and solicits) to better bait in those anons.
I might or it might not it mean something singificant for you, but I just noticed RoseDuelist has faved your groupshot. Don't know if other "notable" (for lack of better word) Sonic Fan(comic)artist have done so before...
>>450813 Yeah, fair enough. I rarely post dudes kissing now unless it's part of a comic since it's such a hassle. It's not all doom and gloom though. We've done 596 threads so far so that's almost 600 times our special friend's failed to actually ruin our fun
>>450819 Man, they're so tall and buff! >>450821 I'm obviously biased, but the way Sails gestures, sits and walks is all pretty gay. They had to know what they were doing >I'm reminded of that scene in Family Guy where Stewie imagines his Rupert teddy bear as a buff guy with the same head. lmao, I can see what you mean >>450822 The secret is to age them up!
When did we start getting thie schizo obsessed with hating tailream? I feel like this is a very very recent thing. Why do these people even bother coming into our threads if they don't like the content? It's tiresome guys.
>>450824 Unlike most schizos, ours likes to swap his personas every so often when he shits up our threads. Usually it's seething about Archie but sometimes it's Tails, IDW or some random ship. There's always sockpuppeting, especially when no one takes the bait. Anything to promote division in our threads, with the ultimate goal of our threads being as bad as /sthg/
>>450838 He really has lost the plot now. I guess I won't be posting maid Infinite this thread then ;_; Oh, and I see our friend that loves talking about chest scars is back. Decided to make a flesh-brow edit just for him!
>>450839 I feel like that comic has chest scars on Sonic to distract people from it not being funny or even interesting. Even the mean spirited 2000s comics with Sonic being a dick is more interesting than Sonic being normal annoying. I think the missed potential is the most irritating to me.
>>450840 Yeah, I see that with a lot of "inclusive" comics. I find it more than a little patronizing and cynical tbh. The art and expressions are great, they just need a writer to land the jokes and this could easily stand on its own. I'm also not a fan of how thoughtless and mean-spirited they portray Sonic. It's as you said though, it can be funny when done well
>>450842 I think he would, if nothing else than to increase his aerodynamics. Speaking of can of worms, one thing I've always wanted to ask is why they don't go laprascopic for top surgery. It's been standard procedure with breast removal for natal women for decades at this point and doesn't leave massive scars.
>>450843 >one thing I've always wanted to ask is why they don't go laprascopic for top surgery. It's been standard procedure with breast removal for natal women for decades at this point and doesn't leave massive scars. Don't quote me on this, but I think surgery has already improved beyond leaving big scares.
At this point representing a character with top surgery scars is more a matter of visual language, like when you give lipstick and eyelashes to convey the fact this cartoon character is female. that way, you don't need your character to be on the nose and say "I am a communist" to convey that notion.
>update For a moment, I thought it was done by the same person who made Too Tall Amy, but nope. https://www.deviantart.com/muchhddh/ Lot's of material suddenly dropping, probably was patreon exclusive beforehand. I am not sure you will feel like doing it, even here.
Archie Ride update: I've started adding the latest versions of the comics to the mega. Feel free to check them for errors. With over 15k images I'm bound to have fucked up somewhere! Link (in base64): aHR0cHM6Ly9tZWdhLm56L2ZvbGRlci9tU0pnbEFiWiNHdjJFMTQ1Nko2ZVo5ZV9SZ1lmRmJR >>450855 Well that's truly horrifying!
>>450860 >Well that's truly horrifying! Funnily, the thing that upset me the most in that setting is that it establish Sonic knew Amy before Sally, which contradict every canon where Sally is in... (or maybe it's different for post-GW Archie?)
>>450861 lmao, not only are the proportions horrifying, it doesn't stick to the canon! >or maybe it's different for post-GW Archie? I'm pretty sure Sonic and Sally have always been childhood friends, with them not meeting Amy until after Robotnik took over
>>450860 Archie Ride update: I ran out of room in the first mega so I've uploaded the postboot stuff into this one. While I've still got to add in the extra art and letters pages the revised editions leave out, that's everything else up now! Link (in base64): aHR0cHM6Ly9tZWdhLm56L2ZvbGRlci9NbVlnaERCWiM4MDJrNEMzTFNGTU5iR2pJWDlXVVJB >>450880 He sure is workin' it!
