Another thread and this time we’ll be doing some TwiX stuff! This artist likes Shadow so we got a short comic of a jackal OC that wants revenge against him and some AU stuff where Maria is still alive. Anyway, this is Spear of Revenge!
>doing shit for a programming project >takes a while but im doing good so far in following a tutorial >fucker in video pastes a whole fuck ton of code for a class, thousands of lines out of nowhere >no idea where he got it from and double checked to make sure >wasted most of my day for fucking nothing I just wanted to make a music player...
This comic and art looks pretty nice. What is it with Shadow and Jackals
>>455833 And that's it! There's other stuff but not really comics so whatever. >>455831 >This comic and art looks pretty nice. What is it with Shadow and Jackals People really like Sonic Forces but not the actual game.
>>455726 Sonic Boom Overwhelmed Page 17-18 https://www.deviantart.com/emeraldessence That's all you thiiiink! That's all you can thiiiink! That's all you can thiiiink! >>455835 Seems like a common theme for a lot of Sonic stuff. The only missed potential for Sonic Mania is that there's no sequel.
Before yesterday's run, I actually thought Max and Lock knew each others, but no. Turns out the Brotherhood was in full hiding and it just happened that Max used the floating Islandas a second residence for vacation times.
I actually find this hilarious. So Sally really told no one about Knuckles, not even her family? It's like Knuckles was an imaginary friend for Sally...
>>455843 Gonna be real with y'all, I do not get the utter adoration the fandom has for Spaz's art for the Archie Sonic comics. Can't deny that his poses are extremely dynamic, but the questionable anatomy has always ruined it for me.
>>455819 Claiming Spire, I can correct him! >>455824 Nooo! >>455827 Damn, Shadow Chaos Spear'd his arm clean off >>455831 >spoiler Damn, sorry to hear that. I absolutely hate the move from text-based tutorials to videos >>455835 Really, they just needed a few more cutscenes, a Chaos battle with Classic Sonic, better classic physics (i.e., no speed cap), and better (and longer) level design >>455840 Looks like the full image didn't download from desuarchive. I've fixed it now, thanks for letting me know! >>455841 >When opened in a new tab it's fine. That's because clicking on the image link opens the one from desuarchive, in case anyone wants the original
>>455842 Yeah, that's mostly us meming since they're both terrible xenophobic parents who make dumb decisions. That and that one artist shipping them made way too much sense >>455844 >DIY tutorials That's the worst. I get all psyched up to make something only to be disappointed I'm supposed to drop a ton of money on expensive tool I'll probably never use again >>455845 Honestly I like that it's a bit weird and wonky in places, gives it a lot of charm >>455848 Yeah, that was odd
>>455842 We haven't gotten to it yet but there is a panel showing Max and Locke talking in the past. I always assumed that was why Max went there. And in Sonic 44, Sally says she kept quiet to protect Knuckles because he wasn't supposed to talk to outsiders as part of his apprenticeship.
>>455850 YAY YOU'RE STILL UPDATING YAY! >I have no intention of stopping, in other words, even if the update schedule has been pushed to a two-week period for right this minute! To put a long story short, I’ve got some health issues that make it hard to stay at my desk & consistently work on stuff, & I don’t quite have the means to fix those issues right this minute. So I’m pushin’ through with what I’ve got, without putting myself into burnout! That’s why it’s taking a little bit, but everyone has been incredibly patient, & I’m always grateful for all the feedback I get in the meantime.
>>455861 It's a show that's sidelined Amy into alternate versions that aren't interested in Sonic while having Shadow princess carry Sonic. They had to know what they were doing. We all know Sonic x Dread is endgame though
>>455865 You hate to see it! >>455868 I try not to thirstpost too much about him since it's a real person's Sonicsona, but he's absolutely adorable! >>455869 Pretty sure we can expect more Sonadow art >Shadow has made it clear he fucking hates Prime Sonic He's just tsun!
>>455865 Not sure if it's Pixy since it seems poignantly lacking in malice. Some poor bastard is having a psychotic episode and they're stuck having it in the same thread with a bunch of Sonic characters.
>>455869 Yeah this. It's fun to imagine they're fucking but Prime!Shadow keeps making his hatred very clear and Prime!Sonic is a little slut himbo that gets touchy with pretty much everyone who isn't related to Eggman. Sometimes the tsundere ain't a tsundere, sometimes they genuinely hate your guts!
>>455871 >Not sure if it's Pixy since it seems poignantly lacking in malice. Yeah, on second reading it's clearly someone having a rough time >Sometimes the tsundere ain't a tsundere, sometimes they genuinely hate your guts! B-but unhealthy one-sided Sonadow is a cornerstone of the genre!
>>455874 >I just hope that, if it's real and not shitposting, whoever it is gets medical attention. Stuff like that makes me sad because all you can really do is sit and watch. Yeah, it's massively frustrating not being able to do anything, assuming it's real >Shit, you're right! Carry on then! One day we'll get an official same-sex romance, although it'll probably be Silver and some other twink >>455875 Ha!
Found a rendering tutorial that really wasn't made for my program of choice but it didn't stop me from creating this BOI
I've been recuperating my strength (AKA trying to beat a depressive slump) via lurking here and playing the bear twink game exclusively. Incorporated some vitamins to my daily routine and already I'm seeing some improvement.
>>455865 >It seems like Pixy is having a fucking psychotic break in the thread right now. I think it is him because his last post was right at bump limit and then it stops. He's been known to eat up bumps to kill a thread faster. While it would be nice if it lasted for several more hours, it's not that big of a deal.
>>455878 Shoggothnic my beloved! Love how you were able to convey his happiness through his many eyes and mouths. Noxt an expert, but the shading looks great, and the underlighting and purple bits are a nice touch >I've been recuperating my strength Glad to hear that! I never seem to recognize the warning signs until I'm in the middle of one >Incorporated some vitamins to my daily routine and already I'm seeing some improvement. I really need to do that instead of just leaving them in the bottle >>455879 I guess it could've been him. I did make some catty comments about his schizo-posting being low-effort lately
I won't announce it yet but it seems I'm finally able to get the series to update twice a week. When page 23 is done, there will be a 10 page buffer. Thanks to the second artist, I can have them do some pages of the main series. The third artist could do a Knuckles series. >>455878 That looks great! I've always found getting stuff done to a good way to get out of that funk. Less things to worry about and favorable results can lift a mood. Not to be dependent on something but coffee helps me get that bit of motivation to start working. >>455880 >I guess it could've been him. I did make some catty comments about his schizo-posting being low-effort lately I always think about why something is happening. And the fact it stopped when it did led me to believe it is the schizo. >>455882 Being a gentleman helping in the slightest goes a long way for some girls.
>>455880 Thank you! It was really fun making him look so happy. Despite the weirdness of the method used I really do like how it makes the shading look, I might use it again!
>I never seem to recognize the warning signs until I'm in the middle of one Just like me fr fr. Didn't even realize I was in the middle of one until someone else came up to me and told me I looked like I was down. I gotta work on introspection to be able to notice one without help, honestly.
>I really need to do that instead of just leaving them in the bottle It's just so tempting to the depression-addled brain, isn't it? They're just perfectly tucked away, so easy to forget they're there unless you put them right in your line of sight 24/7. That said sometimes what helps is changing presentation, I've tried capsules and packets you can put on your drink, but what worked for me was gummies, likewise I've met people to whom gummies just never worked out.
>I guess it could've been him. I did make some catty comments about his schizo-posting being low-effort lately IDWkun took it to heart so deeply he broke his mind via tulpaforcing in order to show you he is good at it!
>>455883 Thank you anon! I've been feeling a lot better this week, hopefully the upcoming holidays give me all the more time to take it easy and drawing more of best boy.
>>455885 Thank you Conductor! Honestly if I'm dependent on anything beyond my silly little franchises about anthropomorphic animals it's definitely caffeine. I drink either coffee or matcha nearly everyday, lmao.
>>455881 Thanks! I should probably clarify that clicking on the image filename shows the desuarchive image. This is so readers can get an image that can be posted on 4chan since my expanded images are in avif format to save space (these avif images are on average 20% the size of the originals, it's pretty much magic) >>455885 >I won't announce it yet but it seems I'm finally able to get the series to update twice a week. Oh boy! >The third artist could do a Knuckles series. yes_hahaha_yes.png >I always think about why something is happening. And the fact it stopped when it did led me to believe it is the schizo. You'd think he'd realize he's saving us the effort of archiving the threads. Also, he needs to charge his phone, that's genuinely irritating me >>455886 >Thank you! It was really fun making him look so happy. Despite the weirdness of the method used I really do like how it makes the shading look, I might use it again! It's always nice to try a new technique, especially if it ends up working well >Just like me fr fr. Didn't even realize I was in the middle of one until someone else came up to me and told me I looked like I was down. I gotta work on introspection to be able to notice one without help, honestly. Yeah, these things sneak up so insidiously it's generally others that notice first. Frankly I need to hang up a big sign to remind me to check how messy the kitchen is since there's a 100% correlation there >They're just perfectly tucked away, so easy to forget they're there unless you put them right in your line of sight 24/7. Ha, that's it exactly! I'll have to try the gummies >IDWkun took it to heart so deeply he broke his mind via tulpaforcing in order to show you he is good at it! All part of my 99 step Kira-esque plan to mindbreak him into the perfect live-in servant! That's why maidposting is so important!
>Script: Dan Parent, Ian Flynn I'm sure this is nothing... but here me out... Also, Archie seriously only has five comics for December with new stories in them? And given the number of pages, the majority of them all are reprints.
Watching SatAM and I got to a part where the following happens >Sonic: "I've been thinking..." >Sally: "Oh, Trying something new are we? I laughed so fucking hard. I love them. Speaking of that, just curious conductor, when did you first started to like sonally? The show or the comic first? Also care to deep dive on your love for their dynamic and why to make it so big part of your comic
>>455929 Mainly the comic. I just like how Sally interacts with Sonic. Very spicy and Sonic loves it. As for making it a big part of the comic, I just wanted to have romance along with action and Sally allows that.
>>455900 I'm not caught up in the 8chan/8kun/8chan.moe drama but it's nice to see there are other imageboards interested in talking about the blue rat. I'll take a look around to see if there's any ideas we can use for our board. Oh, and they've got a fancomic thread too! https://8chan.moe/fast/res/11131.html >>455907 Fun fact, IDWkun got upset when I accused him of being a bot >>455914 NO, I DEMAND A TIMESKIP EPISODE WITH NINE! I just want more WWMH Tails bros ;_; >>455920 >>455921 Same >>455925 I actually like him, even if his characterization is wildly different to other Sonics. He is borderline special needs though
>>455934 I guess most people have moved on to social media, probably because it's more convenient and just as much of a hellscape as modern 4chan. It's a shame, since imageboards are such a comfy format
>>455936 I get many people use twitter for drama but I just want to see cool art >>455937 Oh shit, that's by Motobug, the artist responsible for all those sexy Black Doom pics! https://motobug.tumblr.com/post/707718852756324352/au-finitevus-and-starline-both-work-for-the Pic related's by https://south-sea.tumblr.com/
>>455933 >https://8chan.moe/fast/res/11131.html Went through the entire thread and we've storytimed all of them! They did suggest these links too: https://www.deviantart.com/sonic-comic-artists/gallery/47831033/single-page-comics https://www.deviantart.com/sonic-comic-artists/gallery/35253270/comedy https://www.deviantart.com/sonic-comic-artists/gallery/26698638/horror https://www.deviantart.com/sonic-comic-artists/gallery/48410585/sci-fi-horror
>>455942 Well, he's been kicked off every other Sonic forum so why not there too >>455944 They really should've made Cream Amy, Blaze or Shadow's sidekick. Kind and polite isn't really that interesting by itself >>455945 lmao >>455948 We know Eclipse! >>455949 >Probably still mandated to not be funny. Him being tsun is what makes him fun!
Even though there's not much left of the Knuckles series, I think I'll no longer start with any Knuckles issues and even save them for last. That won't help when Penders gets more active in the Sonic issues and continues his Knuckles stories in that.
Why did Penders think ripping off a holocaust poem was a good fucking idea? He derailed the comic so fucking hard with that offensive shit. I'm still kinda interested in some things but the comic quality just tanked there for me.
>>455952 Penders has ambition but he lacks self awareness. He doesn't think how others will receive his work and he probably doesn't care. That's the kind of thinking that had him wanting to kill off Sally. His bigger problem is favoring his characters over the ones others have created. That's what I've noticed as the Knuckles series went on. Knuckles got sidelined and as someone else mentioned, the Chaotix barely do anything. They just stand around and talk but are nowhere around when the action kicks in. His narcissism is something else and it led to his downfall. If he worked on that then he'd still be writing for Sonic. Ian might have never gotten a chance to work for Archie. He could've even muscled Bollers out of the writing spot if he was really devious.
>>455954 Penders seriously needed a tard wrangler to tell him no when writing that shit. And it does suck the star of the comic, starts to get fucking sidelined and so his friends. They're could've been a balance but penders would not budge in shilling his characters. Cant believe he wanted to replace Eggman with Dr. Droid! I hate that while reading theres glimmers of actual good stuff.
Knuckles for one being peeved off at all this myterious bullshit, and the brotherhood having legit reasons to stay so secret and having someone like spectre disagree with the grandpas. Problem is, he makes Knuckles just accept that bullshit and only until recently did spectre do anything, which was very based. He's the best one there. But for the rest, they talk about doing things for the greater good but do nothing and expects us to see that as good. It's frustrating.
And it just makes me mad that Knuckles having to deal with his people is a genuinely good idea and direction for the character than just guarding his dumb rock. I havent played chronicles yet but I hear it does that aspect well and wouldve done more with his people on earth after it before penders decided to fuck things up. Knuckles is doomed to never do anything interesting again and some would point to frontiers, but knowing the games, it wont go anywhere. Being a Knuckles fan is suffering.
>>455959 He just cant help himself >And now we're seeing the pushing of OCs in IDW. Funny how history repeats itself I've advocated better character balance for comic originals and game characters but god, I just cant care for the idw characters. Diamond cutters suck with their new member, sheep tits, making it worse. And for diet scourge and her simp being a fucking disapointment and jokes that lost all their credibility as bad guys. What a giant fuck up.
>>455959 IDW can't really make their OCs relevant. So much that it's actually detrimental to the comic. The OCs are necessarily always going to be nobodies in the greater context of the series even inside the setting of the comics. And they also can't ever have any meaningful interactions with a game character, to the point where two IDW minis revolve around OCs talking to each other and the other revolves around 2 game characters by themselves.
I'm almost sure that it's mostly a Sega thing rather than just IDW too, so I can't even blame them.
>>455960 We've gotten out of publication order quite a bit. For example, the Image crossover was done a lot earlier than when it was printed. We're also doing the Knuckles issues so their arcs aren't broken up by Sonic issues. >>455961 In cases such as that, I place all the blame on the writers. It's obvious they have more freedom since the OCs don't have nearly as many restrictions but that doesn't excuse how badly they're written. At least Penders gets negative responses from some of his OCs while somehow writing some genuinely good characters. The IDW OCs generate some anger but then apathy.
>>455963 Its the writers fault for making surge change her motivation every other issue and get beaten to made out to be a joke even when sonic is weak and shes all powered up. What were they thinking. Also its a meme but actually true with whisper crying all the fucking time and being sad for tangle to be there too. And lanolin, she really is the geoffrey of the comic and makes it worse for existing.
>>455962 But look at Monkey Khan. He's got simple stories that likely wouldn't trigger any mandates and I find much more interesting. The last story we covered was all OCs. And it's drawn and written by someone I know nothing about. A good writer can work within restraints and whenever Ian and Evan get a chance to do so, they don't. I understand that they get screwed over here and there but some bad decisions they've made is obviously their fault. I'll happily blame SoJ for a lot of stuff but I'm not letting those two off the hook. You can also lay some blame on the editors as well.
>>455964 Imagine Lanolin getting really close to Amy and taking her on missions and Sonic starts feeling left out. Of course you can't have Amy and Lanolin making out in front of him but the comic has done romantic undertones so that could be done. And then Sonic and Lanolin fight for some reason, neither win, and Amy breaks them apart. Then Lanolin and Amy start hugging while Sonic is fuming.
>>455965 >He's got simple stories that likely wouldn't trigger any mandates I don't think you understand how bad Sega's autistic micromanaging can be, remember that Shadow had to be rewritten out of an arc where he was going to do nothing but sit down and watch a bunch of Chao doing tricks.
Also remember that this is a company that caused multiple others to go bankrupt before, including themselves. Archie could casually give game characters their own families and love interests and have entire arcs made around those things.
I know our threads are mostly Archie fans but I don’t wanna seem like I entirely dislike idw for “not being muh Archie”. I gave it a reading as it’s own thing but I just don’t like what I read. Just boring stories and mid stories and awful shit like the eggperial arc made me actually quit giving a real fuck about it.. That along the classic pandering shit is genuinely tiring to keep seeing.
>>455968 >Shadow But that's Shadow, the most notoriously heavily mandated character, not an original character like Monkey Khan is. He has his supporting cast and even villains. A better comparison would be the IDW original characters. The restrictions we know about would be not being able to beat Sonic or Eggman but when you have Iron King and Iron Queen then you don't have that problem. And that's another thing, killing off Starline really sucked. I also didn't like how he was so reliant on Eggman's tech, even when he was working on his own stuff. And then that 900th Adventure issue got rid of the Warp Topaz, as if saying Starline is never ever ever coming back.
>>455969 I do wonder how people who have very little exposure to Archie view IDW. I can see IDW's flaws without thinking about Archie. But what about others that have IDW Sonic as their first and only experience to the franchise in comic form? >>455971 SatAM focused on Sonic and Sally and no so much the others. There's very little character development and then it ends after a couple seasons. Would Archie be remembered as much if it stopped at issue 50? Maybe earlier? I think SatAM would be more fondly remembered if it got a few more seasons and improved upon things. But Archie is as close to a continuation of the cartoon series as you can get.
>>455972 The various clans, the lion guy and fox girl, that brother and sister he was with in the last story. And of course Iron King and Iron Queen. Just make her a badger or whatever. Not bad for a few stories about Monkey Khan.
>>455970 >The restrictions we know about I see people talking about this and honestly I think it's nothing but wishful thinking of fans, unwilling to accept that Sega who reviews every single issue individually before they're released might be tanking the overall quality of the comic with their demands that might be or not completely arbitrary and chaotic, despite this happening before in multiple instances with other companies, sometimes to disastrous outcomes.
>>455977 I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to say but I think I might. If you take out everything that only Ian has said and only focus on stuff that others have said and even the changes made because of it, there are plenty. Shadow wasn't allowed to be on a team with Rouge and Omega and Amy took his spot. The writers for both Sonic Boom and Sonic Prime have talked about how Shadow was heavily restricted. And there's minor stuff like Marine not being allowed to appear at the end of the Metal Virus arc because they don't want characters getting their first appearance at the end of an arc. And there's the change to Blaze's mouth in the reprint for an issue. We've also heard about Sega wanting artists using 3D game models and sticking to that but you can file that under "take this with a grain of salt."
>>455978 The Blaze mouth thing was pretty funny, I couldn't believe it at first. Imagine how hellish must it be to work on a comic about silly cartoon animals where drawing one of their faces a bit to cartoony might trigger someone at SoJ.
>>455971 I still prefer SatAM, but Archie simply has more. Either ways, it's weird to me to try to put the two against each others when they share so much DNA and sometimes are almost indistinguishable.
>>455983 Yardley's been told to change his faces a few times I can remember. The Sonic crying during Ian's 25 Years Later arc, one panel of Sonic running mad and his mouth had to be moved, and of course pic related. Not sure if it was editorial or Sega for each of them.
>>455958 >Penders seriously needed a tard wrangler to tell him no when writing that shit. He had Mike Kanterovich at the start and you can really see his bat habits start to form when he starts writing solo >>455962 That's why Rough and Tumble are the only OCs that really work. They've got cool designs, but don't overshadow the main cast; are villains, but clearly not an Eggman-level threat; have a cool rhyming gimmick and great chemistry, but don't overstay their welcome since they're not in every issue. I'm obviously biased though >>455963 >The IDW OCs generate some anger but then apathy. That's their main problem. They're hyped up as competent new heroes that are on Sonic's level, but spend most issues talking in front of gradient voids >>455965 100% this. If other writers can make stories like Scrapnik Island, then it's not a mandates issue >>455976 Not the Konductor, but Shadow's got his own team with Rouge and Omega, villains like Black Doom, and working for GUN means there's a lot of enemies for them to fight that aren't Eggman >>455979 Is he? I know some people aren't happy with his use of 3d models or rounder style >>455985 See this one I do agree with, Sonic's fucking creepy here. >>455988 Plap fucking plap! >>455989 There's a reason yaoi is written for and by women >>455995 Sonic you moody bitch. I love you so much!
Last arc and issue Knuckles 25 really cemented the knuckles comic being mid. It's a shame, i was generally enjoying it until the derailment and repeating of the brotherhood doing the same talking each time. I wanted to see remington and julie-su get more development as I really like them from their appearances but its actually crazy how sidelined they get pretty quickly, espically julie. Fucking sad, she isnt that bad and pretty decent.
>>456014 >Not the Konductor, but Shadow's got his own team with Rouge and Omega, villains like Black Doom, and working for GUN means there's a lot of enemies for them to fight that aren't Eggman Sadly none of that is allowed because Sega is overly protective of him and want him to be as one dimensional as possible. >>456015 >I couldn't help myself! Well that and the anon posting a bunch of images are making sure the thread won't last the night. Yay?
>>456016 It gets worse towards the end of the Knuckles series, but picks up again once it's in the main books >>456017 >Sadly none of that is allowed because Sega is overly protective of him and want him to be as one dimensional as possible. >Well that and the anon posting a bunch of images are making sure the thread won't last the night. Yay? That's why I multipost, otherwise half the thread would be mine. I'd prefer the threads last longer but anons have desuarchive and the website if they want to catch up. Frankly, I'd prefer if we had the actual discussions here but it's a slow process
>>456020 >Sadly none of that is allowed because Sega is overly protective of him and want him to be as one dimensional as possible. Whoops. Didn't paste this in. I suspect they still don't know what to do with him. He's supposed to work for GUN, but they don't want to actually show GUN anymore. It's such a shame because having Team Dark go on missions to exotic locations is exactly what's needed to flesh out the world. Surely Eggman isn't the only threat to the planet and Sonic can't be everywhere at once
Shadow is such a weird character. Sometimes he works with others like with gun and team dark but is supposed to be a loner otherwise. Problem is that he does fucking nothing in those periods. There’s no stories of shadow doing shit by himself meeting people like sonic does, nothing. It only happens when he’s with some other established character and then he can appear on screen. Like what is the point of him if he does fuck all most of the time?
Also to add more, with GUN as of now, none existent, and rouge and eventually probably omega will hang out with sonic more. meaning shadow will appear less and less since they don’t do any stories of his alone travels. So weird.
>>456023 That's why him being part of Team Dark and working for GUN works. It makes coming up with stories for him so easy and gives him a place and surrounded by people that care for him. >>456024 Shadow is the Wolverine of the franchise. He's not the main character but the edgy guy that came along and became wildly popular. Imagine if Marvel just stopped using Wolverine.
>>455949 Sonic Boom Overwhelmed Page 20 https://www.deviantart.com/emeraldessence This entire comic feels less like a Sonic Boom comic and more like a typical Sonic comic. Oh well, at least we have Egg Dimension! Actually that doesn't feel like a Sonic Boom comic either.
>>456021 Yeah, that's what I'm hoping for >>456023 He's not too bad on his own since he's very introspective so he'll talk/think to himself a lot. We only really see it in his game and 06 though >>456024 They did mention GUN in Frontiers so maybe they're willing to do something with the concept again. Oh, and not everyone gets this, but the reason Ian doesn't think Team Dark's a thing is because he's good at misrepresenting things and Sega's terrible at explaining things. Functionally, Shadow, Rouge and Omega often work together and are close, but they're not an official team. Technically only Shadow is confirmed to work for GUN. In 06 Rouge isn't a part of GUN, she's just on loan (probably from the President). They'll obviously work together for missions (06, Forces) and even go racing together (TSR), but Shadow and Rouge have different bosses so they're not Team™ Dark™. I suspect that's why there are restrictions on showing them as a trio in IDW, but that's mostly because Sega didn't want GUN to be mentioned >>456025 >Shadow is the Wolverine of the franchise 100% this >>456029 It's so good! I love that KrazyELF doesn't make Knuckles an exclusive top just because he's bigger and more muscular than Sonic >>456030 l-lewd!
>>456037 It's so polarizing to see statements that they arent friends but official stuff like this comes out too. Also to be completely honest, Im not a fan of Rouge becoming apart of the "gang". Like I get her fans (coomers) want her to interact with characters that arent omega and shadow but her being with sonics main group starting with prime feels even more forced than team dark could ever be. It also erases the few bits of her having a gray side even more. Which they always refused to ever truly follow through with (like with most things in this franchise)
She (and shadow for that matter) cant never do anything morally questionable or something another character would say "wow, that was very fucking shitty of you to do". And before you say anything, Im asking for rouge to mass murder or some shit, but do a form of bad that an average good character would heavily disagree with. Something that give them an actual distinction. I guess its kind of hopeless to expect though because the fans would reeee and general tendacy of this franchise to have mid writing so Ill always have a bit of a dislike for her.
>>456038 Yeah, that's the problem. Anything coming out from Sega has been (poorly) translated across a cultural and linguistic barrier but (almost) everything from Ian and others working on the comics is biased and inaccurate. I'm not even sure if the "they're not friends" even came from Sega. In their bios, Shadow and Rouge have each other as their most trusted/important person so even if they don't braid each other's hair, they obviously care about each other and regularly work together.
Having Rouge in the Dreams game is really just them needing a girl Knuckles to go with girl Sonic (Amy) and girl Tails (Cream), and in Prime they never really explained what her deal was. Does she live in Green Hill too? Is she part of the Sonic and friends™ group or does she just drop by occasionally? I don't think we even get to see her interact with Shadow, which is a wasted opportunity to cement their current official relationship
It would be nice to see Rouge pull off some heists or for them to be more explicit with Shadow going too far. He (probably?) did kill all of Infinite's team in Forces, but they shy away from confirming anything
>>456041 Theres always a bit of weirdness. But there is something I do wanna say, I trust what Ian says more on actual behind the scenes stuff than random fucks on the chans (no offense to you). Because if ian was really lying this much about stuff and considered disrepecting sonic team as much as people say he does. He would have been fired YEARS ago as they for sure pay attention to what he says regarding the franchise. fans tend to leave out that he always does say things do change at a whim too, and I feel some are too stubborn with changes happens, specially lore ones. Yes her being in dream team does seem to be a type thing and in Prime she's clearly a friend as she's seen hanging out with them before the shatter as a super close friend than she usually is. Shadow did kill that squad. He destroyed them.
Konductor! I've cleaned up the two Archie minis and put them in the Mega. I suggest running them before the Sabrina comic >>456040 Sorted! >>456042 No worries, I'm not offended. I only go by what I see in the actual games and occasionally what the official twitter says. Even the interviews with Iizuka/Kishimoto/etc are pretty unreliable since the translations are garbage >He would have been fired YEARS ago as they for sure pay attention to what he says regarding the franchise Honestly, he's mega unprofessional on his podcast and I'm guessing they don't fire him since he's better behaved on twitter where more people pay attention. It's an odd situation where I feel Sega knows it isn't communicating well with the West, but isn't willing to change how they do things. They're definitely using Tailstube to correct some of the stuff Ian's gotten wrong though >fans tend to leave out that he always does say things do change at a whim too That's where I disagree with him, but I get not everyone sees things that way >Shadow did kill that squad. He destroyed them. He did, but it could've been handled better. I get that they can't show him snapping necks, but it would've been nice to have Infinite say something later in Shadow's DLC about getting revenge for his fallen comrades (unless he did and I missed it)
>>456017 >Sadly none of that is allowed because Sega is overly protective of him the recently released bio provide some actual wiggle room to actually allow it.
It was weird seeing people getting upset by it when it basically confirm "Yeah, they make a team". I just see it as Shadow being mega-tsundere or something "Yeah I just risked my life to save yours, but only because I see you as an asset to protect the earth just like MUUURIAH! wanted it, it's not like I am your friend or something... baka"
What a cute couple! Forget Sonally, we're a Strikarry house now! >>456044 Three hours now >>456047 It was weird, but not unexpected. Some fans will complain about anything. Shadow and Rouge are very close, it's just that Shadow's tsun. If anything, Rouge probably finds it endearing
>On quiet nights in Sandopolis, you can faintly hear two male voices upon the air. Those voices belong to General Helmut Von Stryker and his boyfriend Harry, as the former hits his spot with great precision (not to mention intensity).
>>456043 >Konductor! I've cleaned up the two Archie minis and put them in the Mega. I suggest running them before the Sabrina comic Okay. That means I'll have to change what else I post again. Maybe I'll just add an issue of Sonic and save the next Knuckles arc for the next thread.
4chan's been down for 5.5 hours now. I wonder what they do with the jannies? Do they get paid time off? Hew hew >>456056 >FNAF Oh no, my greatest weakness: zoomer culture! >>456057 Gotta keep you on your toes!
>>456058 I think I'll break a Knuckles arc and have the first part in the thread afterwards. That way the big Sonic reveal can go uninterrupted. >next thread = crossover stuff and sonic 73 >thread after = sonic 74-75 and knuckles 26 >after that = sonic 76-77 and knuckles 27-28
>>455996 SoJ despises the idea of Sonic displaying more emotions than "vaguely snarky". For a long fucking time, they didn't even let his (or other mobians) ears emote - not until after the movies, at least.
>>456082 Wow, that was unexpected. I wonder if anyone's seen the trailer for The Lost Ones movie? >>456083 lmao, we've corrupted so many >>456086 He'd need fancy CGI armor first! >>456092 We could always split the difference and call him a bara!

>>456099 I still don't get how he thought this was acceptable. Imagine subjecting the Sega execs to this. FYI if you mute it, you'll get to see some Penders animation storyboards over stock photos >>456100 I've been trying to find a copy for a while now but no luck. You can see some of it here though: https://robotnik-mun.tumblr.com/tagged/Let%27s%20Review%20The%20Lost%20Ones >>456101 Yeah, I do that a lot
>>456109 Imagine if The Lost Ones did take off and Penders ditched Archie to pursue that series. And when it failed, he tried to go back but couldn't. >>456110 And imagine if Penders thought you were a curious friend and he liked talking to you about all sorts of Sonic stuff.
>>456110 I'd rather not talk to him or give him money. He deliberately got my favorite comic canceled because he was jealous it survived without him and I'll never forgive him for that. >>456111 >Imagine if The Lost Ones did take off and Penders ditched Archie to pursue that series. And when it failed, he tried to go back but couldn't. Man, that would've been awesome. If he was less lazy he easily could've got 4-6 issues out before it was canceled, which would've been plenty of time for Flynn to establish himself at Archie >And imagine if Penders thought you were a curious friend and he liked talking to you about all sorts of Sonic stuff. Horrifying!
IDK if any of you remember but the other day I mentioned reading archie and mentioning how I didnt understand the narrative that he was this big jerk the entire time without much good. and I was refering to old debates of archie and fleetway being the source of seeing it. After some tracking down, I found this image of an example of what I was talking about. I still dont get it.
>>456116 The stuff that contributes to the narrative that Archie Sonic is a jerk is under 5%, probably even less. It's just some bad stuff he did scattered across hundreds of issues where he's otherwise a really nice guy. Also character assassination by some writers. Fleetway Sonic is an ass but it's because he's dedicated to being a hero and he cares very much about saving everyone no matter how much they annoy him. He has difficulty opening up to people and his mouth is how he copes. I do wish he was nicer to Tails though but it's all banter.
>anti ian tumblr cult having a massive circlejerk meltdown over surge in dash and evans tweet about it I really should stay away but laughing at these losers is just too good. They are literally OBSESSED
>>456117 Couldn't agree more. Sonic has some jerk moments but they're few and far between over the course of 20+ years. That said, Ian does write him as a bit of a jerk to Tails. It's pretty apparent just how patronizing he Sonic treats Tails in that one Boom episode he wrote >Fleetwaynic I think most people just don't get that the banter with his friends is intended to be affectionate. It's very different to the banter he has with Robotnik and other villains >>456119 You wouldn't think adding a character to a mobile game would cause so much salt, but here we are
>>456120 >I think most people just don't get that the banter with his friends is intended to be affectionate. Well, he did make Porker cry and apologized about it. I have no problem with him being a snarky ass because a lot of characters deserve it. But not Tails or Porker. At least Tails got snarky towards the end.
>>456121 Yeah, he should've known Porker wasn't in a place to be receptive to the banter but at least he did apologize. Agreed about most of the other characters, you could easily argue the townsfolk were the real villains. >At least Tails got snarky towards the end. See that's what I think the intention partially was, to get them good at bantering. One thing that's common to all Robotniks is that they're weak to banter and frustrate easily, and that's when they make mistakes
>>456122 Fleetway Sonic was also very concerned about his image and being the top hero. When he came back from the Special Zone and heard that Tails was doing well on his own, he refused to believe it. I liked how STCO continued that and Sonic supported him in that. I also like how Sonic was nicer to Charmy than the Chaotix were even though he also found Charmy incredibly annoying.
>>456125 Yeah, both Fleetway and Archie Sonics are a bit egotistical, although I think part of it is to boost morale. STCO did a great job evolving the partnership into mutual respect. The Charmy thing was pretty cute too >>456131 What a lovely little comic! Great backstory for Witchcart that contrasts with Robotnik's, and it's nice to see Tails so confident. Really hope we see more
>>456141 Her title's Empress Dowager so she's either the mother or widow of the Emperor. This title sometimes grants regency so she could've been ruling. My best guess is Julayla's Sally's grandmother and was ruling after Max was lost. Because she's died, Sally's now Empress/Princess Regent/Queen Regent
>>456143 It took me three goes to read that, and I don't even like breasts that much! I've honestly got no idea how Tower gets any work done with all those sexy Mobians around >>456144 The perfect balance of edgy drama and sexiness
>>456142 >My best guess is Julayla's Sally's grandmother On the father's side, apparently. While the Duchess title likely belong to Elias's wife, I was a bit confused by the mention of an Empress in plus of the Empress Dowager in the listing of those took part in the march, until I realised Nicole is talking in present tense and referring to Sally per her current tittle of Empress.
Everything is now clearer, now, but hey, at least it give me an excuse to repost this picture of Sally.
>>456146 Yeah, that makes more sense now. I skipped the green text because it was hard to read >at least it give me an excuse to repost this picture of Sally That's the spirit! I'm glad we have here to post because there's no way Sally's assets are getting past the 4chan janny >>456147 Sold, but I'm claiming the redheaded cat/fox on the right!
>>456151 Yeah, anything containing busty Mobian ladies is a no-go over there. Buff Mobian dudes too now, since a few of the Stryker images I posted got deleted. They really hate our threads, but can't really get rid of us since we're the most popular thread on the board (and represent 3% of all posts), with the Murder Drones being a close second
>>456162 https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/133048318#133049256 My memory is hazy and other anons like Thirstposter have read all of the summaries but here's the brief pieces from each issue that has been written. The whole thing is planned out and there's no way the artist will cover the entire series.
>>456176 Not accurate at all in my experience, and I've read through the entire run over 5 times. Archie's extremely inconsistent if anything. It's most apparent in the Knuckles comics where we'll have interesting arcs with dumb moments followed by terrible arcs with the occasional good moment. Even the issues with Geoffrey creeping on Sally are fairly fun outside the panels with him. Of course we also have absolutely garbage specials like Live and the Image crossover, but those can also be ignored
>>456156 They win, but Enerjak gets summoned and kills everyone and even though Enerjak is eventually beaten, he's exterminated all species on Mobius barring hedgehogs and echidnas since Manik and Knuxkles' daughter end up repopulating the planet, which incidentally makes Silver a direct descendant of theirs. Silver gets his future and its peaceful and happy, but again, there are only hedgehogs and echidnas on Mobius (and I guess Mogul too, since nobody kills him) so whilst he enjoys his 10 years of peace in his future, he eventually resolves to fix everything for good and saves everyone by going back in time one last time, which ultimately erases him from existence since he'd never be born without the circumstances leading to Manik and Lara-Su repopulating Mobius.
>>456178 ;_; I kinda want to make one for IDW but I'd be too biased >>456196 That's exactly why I don't really enjoy the story anymore. Knowing almost everyone dies and none of it even matters because Silver erases everything with his sacrifice just leaves a bad taste in my mouth >>456197 Yeah, that's how it goes unfortunately
>>456203 lmao, that's wonderfully unhinged! I thought it was obvious that each of Sonic's friends is in charge of a different shatterspace. Rebel's in charge of the resistance in New Yolk City, Dread's captain of his ship, and jungle Amy's in charge of jungle world. You could also argue Nine's in charge of that one shatterspace he found and Shadow's the only living resident of desaturated Green Hill. Also, I'm surprised he didn't notice that while they covered up Rouge's breasts, they added way more junk in her trunk
Currently working on a Definitive and Complete Reading Order, (up until issues 50 for now) and let me tell you, Pender is a BIIIIG pain in the ass. But I am pulling it through. The solution is to put all of the Echidna stuff in a single block before the comics start becoming less episodic.
I now realise there was literally no point in putting this Helmet on Sally. Robtnik make zero use of her state and even if he did, there is nothing this helmet do that Roboticization wouldn't have accomplished itself.
>>456213 I was thinking of doing the various Archie continuation comics again when I'm done with Archie. That is if I feel like posting on 4chan after the Archie Ride. I just want to post one issue of Sonic X every thread because aside from the issues where Eggman becomes a wrestler, it's even more boring than the Knuckles comic.
>>456216 >I was thinking of doing the various Archie continuation comics again when I'm done with Archie. I thought that had always been the intend. At least just before you started the Archie ride, especially as, by that point, ASO will likely have bridged their last remaining gap in their series, allowing to finally story-time it in the intended reading order. And Forever will have a more substantial amount of issue to do.
And, who know, maybe even Retold will actually have its Retold-Grams finally done for its issue #5, but let's not get our hop too high, there.
> I just want to post one issue of Sonic X every thread How about you make 10 consecutive threads of 4 issues each so you can be done with it? Sound like a great idea...
>>456219 I like ASO but I keep forgetting when their last issue came out. Archie Sonic Forever hasn't released anything in over a month. Glitcher's face is on the side of a milk carton. And don't forget A Sly Encounter is still chugging along. >How about you make 10 consecutive threads of 4 issues each so you can be done with it? Sound like a great idea... Only if you're willing to help fill those threads with posts everyday because we both know it'll barely get anyone posting in them.
>>456225 Releasing pages weekly is preferable IMO to posting them in batches. That approach would keep the series fresher even though it would lose that comic book feel of getting entire issues at one time. I think Sonic Legacy managed to put out issues fast for a bit but it's been a while for them as well. The only other series that's as consistent as my series is Sonic the Continuation.
And what do you know, it's been just over a year since I started posting Sonic and the Freedom Fighters. The cover was posted on the website on November 13, 2022.
FYI, the latest issue of STC-O is in the mega >>456210 Cool! I'm planning on redoing the original scans so people have the option of reading either version >>456208 It looks like she's going super! >>456216 That'd be fun >That is if I feel like posting on 4chan after the Archie Ride. I'll probably do the occasional storytime, but mostly to let anons know about here >Sonic X Yeah, probably best to space it out. There are a few really good issues though >>456220 lmao >>456226 Happy anniversary! Yeah, I like the weekly pages but with a storytime of the complete issue when it's done >>456227 I think they went through some major turnover but they're at least getting back to it
IT IS FINALLY DONE! well at least for up until issue #50. I intend to update it every time we will have gone through 50 issues in the mainline series. Nevertheless I present to you Archie Comics Sonic The Hedgehog: the Definitive and Complete Reading Order

I made this trying to follow two directives: -as much as possible, respect the publishing order -as much as possible, make so each issue can be read as whole BUT Priority is given to: -respect the chronology. if one issue state that a story took place before it, then put that story before it -try to make arcs as undisrupted as possible.
THE PRIORITY IS TO MAKE THE READING AS SMOOTH AND COHERENT AS POSSIBLE.
>>456235 In case you want me to elaborate a bit more as to why and how I made this, something that has increasingly bothered during this ride is when an ongoing plot is interrupted by a different story that clearly take place at a different point in time with completely different stake, especially if this is a mini-series done in the middle of an unrelated ongoing arc. It's particularly the case when it's in the form of a bonus story told over several issues.
But, depending of the situation, I have two different approaches. Let's take today's story time to illustrate my point:
For the Knuckles issues, you had the story of Knuckles getting an Date and Mighty trying to find ray. In the Knuckles story, Mighty is present at Echidnapolis. in the mighty Story he is away and it's clear he can't come back in between, it's impossible those two stories happen at the same time. So, to respect the chronology, you have split the successive issues in their distinctive stories, reassemble them into their own arcs and tell each arc as a whole one after the other. Let's call it the Mighty Rule.
>>456236 For the Sonic issues, you also had tow stories: Sonic facing the swatbots and Jules and Bernie telling a story, but this time, it is clear that chronologically, they happen at the same time or at least in alternation to each other, so it is best to keep things the way the issues present them. Issues will be read as a whole one after the other. Let's call it the Jules&Bernie Rule.
One last rule is about the chronology is that in later publication they tell a story that clearly chronologically to take place way earlier in the series, but is meant to be told when it was published, YOU STILL TELL THAT STORY IN THE PUBLICATION ORDER. For example, you don't put the story of Naugus's origin before the first issue of Sonic the Hedgehog. I call it the Naugus Rule. However, I might break that rule from time to time when I consider it more convenient, especially for non-canon stuffs.
Anyway, if you are interested in a more detailed breakdown of my process, here it is, "chapter" by "chapter" (that I made up myself), in the following posts...
>>456237 >It was the best of times, it was the silliest of times would you believe Sonic The Hedgehog wasn't always the epic Space-Fantasy of sword and sorcerer TV-Novella Saga that we all know? I am as surprised as you are.
Not much to say there, pretty much everyone agree on this order. I just placed the "Everything Old is Newt Again" story right after the Sonic: In Your Face! special as it give a direct alternative to the canon origin of Nicole. Conductor just did the same.
Also, I removed the Princess Sally teaser in issue# 20, as it clearly is meant to take place after issues #23
>>456238 >Getting more serious(-ish?) There isn't really a clear issue where you can pinpoint the switch in tone in the Archie Sonic comics, but the introduction of Spaz's art-style with the story of E.V.E. is as good as any. But don't worry, the zaniness isn't completely gone yet, far from it.
Still not much that need justification, aside from "Deadliest of the Species" having to be moved to before issue #24 as there is no possibility for Sally to have come back for issue #21, #22 and #23 while being on her mission in the Princess Sally mini-series. Per Mighty Rule, the teaser and the mini-series take place between issue #23 and #24, issue #24 which explicitly refer tot it and establish Sally just came back from it.
By the same Mighty Rules, the second part of "Growing Pains" must take place immediately after issue #28, whose events are explicitly referenced by the first part of "Growing Pains" and establish it take place right after, with no wiggle room for other events to take place (even if it doesn't make sense that Tails is suddenly upset). And still by the same logic, the Tails mini-series must take place right after "growing pain". Is it too much Tails in a row, well don't worry, because now come...
>>456239 >Echidnas, echidnas everywhere! aka the Knuckleing, aka Why Can't I Hold All those Knuckles, aka Whoops, All Knuckles... I really hope you like Knuckles cause you are getting Knuckles at every meal, there. Keep at least one eye open cause his best friends the Chaotix just might pop in to wish him luck. Oh, and Sonic are sometimes there too...
Boy was this one a dozy. As of now, that was the most time consuming part in the making of this Reading Order. Almost make me think like Penders personally hated my guts. I know, I know, I can already see Conductor reeling seeing this...
But please understand, I am not the one who chose to start a story in a special, decided to continue it through several issues AND an other special, only to conclude it in its own mini-series, all the while only lasting in-story time probably LESS THAN HALF A DAY! It leave ZERO WIGGLE ROOM for anything else to happen in-between. The Migty Rule dictate that they all get together in a single go.
It's not all bad, though, having all those parts weaved in a single arc make for an easier and even enjoyable read. Many of those bits are just two pages comics anyway, which make it shorter than what you might think at first glance. Also, those who pay attention will remember that Tails's mini-series actually prelude to all of this Echidna arc, so it is actually neat to follow straight away with all of the echidna stuff, so the reader doesn't have the time to forget about it.
Anyway, once that bit is out of the way, there is no continuity contradiction to put the rest of the Super Sonic vs. Hyper Knuckles special issue after the Knuckle mini-series. Mighty being there sure wouldn't have allowed to put it in-between. Mighty rules, per usual.
I have also decide to drop the Archie & Friends: A Halloween Tale there, because there isn't really anywhere else it could fit and what do I have to lose at this point anyway. Robotnik is still alive but they also mention the events cause by Ian Droid, making it incompatible with any point in the continuity, but we can just chose to ignore that.
>>456240 >Roboticisation intensifies Back to normal business. For some reason, a lot of those stories have a bigger focus on the plot point of Roboticization. Whether it was intentional or not, I am making it the thematic of this bundle. We start directly with Sally volunteering of Roboticization. I heard it does great for the skin.
We are back to materials that are easier to manage. Just remove the echidna stuff. The one thing to be wary of is that the Bonus story of issue #32, where Rotor try to rescue his people, has to be done first to follow on the first part in issue #31, other wise, you can't explain why Rotor is present. Mighty Rule.
This is also the first time I break the Naugus Rule for a canon story and putting the Sonic Super Special #5: Sonic Kids right after issue #38. In its publishing order, it's put interrupting ongoing stories and the final story chronologically follow issue #38. Plus issue #38 get to show us Sonic as a little baby, so that sealed the deal for me. Stories of the FF fighting Robotnik fit better before issue #50 anyway and I don't think seeing Merlin earlier cause any trouble to the general story.
I could shuffle things around and put “Total Re-Genesis” right after "The Rise of Robotropolis...The Fall of Sonic!" and lump "Bedtime Tails" with all of the Kids stories, but it read well enough as it is. Let's keep the issues whole when possible and consider the other stories as flashbacks and/or intermissions.
>>456241 >Oh yeah, there is a King to rescue, I guess? What is more important than saving the king? Everything. But let's do that anyway.
I could have lumped it all with End Game, but most of those issue are so focused on retrieving and healing Max (only to conclude with a sort of nothing-burger) that I consider it make a chapter of its own.
One thing that bothered me was how issue #41 having Geoffrey present at the end, only for him to have been gone for a while and just come back at the start of Sonic Quest. Surely, something must have happened in-between and this is where Sonic Blast special fit nicely, especially as it starts with Sonic telling Sally he is surprised she knew Knuckles beforehand, so not long after it became public knowledge.
Per Jules&Bernie Rule (it can't always been Mighty), I don't need to Frankenstein the different part s of Knuckle Quest. It even explicitly states that events of other issues take place between each part. Let's keep things chronological.
There is no continuity contradiction in putting Sonic Live after issue #42 and this way issue #42 can be kept whole. Tails simply came back for the start of Sonic live, after he showed Knuckles the big hole in the ground.
Anyway, for who did I do that? For new readers? I doubt it's a very good recommendation for new readers to jump from one issue to the other. Maybe for TP to reorganise his file for the next time there is an archie Sonic Story time. Though, per experience, we have learned the audience is not too keen on the Knuckling (what you thought there would be only one?) It might be too much even for the Conductor.
So, for a future publisher who somehow secure the right again so that they have a correct order of publication? Let's go with that, sure...
Anyway, I needed to do this and now it's done. until we hit issue 100 but I think it won't be as hard this time (I hope).
>>456243 >Many thanks for the one and half person who somehow was interested in reading ll of that. Jesus Christ. I am convinced there is some Evil Font Conspiracy that prevent you to see the spelling and phrasing mistakes when you write in a text box, but use a slightly different font that make them all pop in you face when you read them once published.
There are so many mistakes and terrible way I expressed myself that I am only seeing now, sorry for subjecting you to all that. I hope it was still worth it.
>>456235 Wow, thanks for going to all this effort! >>456236 Yeah, the chronology's a bit of a mess with Archie. I ended up using the reading order from here: https://thankskenpenders.tumblr.com/readingorder, and while it's much better than going publication order, there's still problems. >>456244 I'll definitely be reorganizing all the comics, and cleaning up all the original scans so readers have a choice between the originals and the digital recolors >>456252 Adorable! >>456256 Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll have to do that soon ;_;
Today is the day we do the naked Sally story. I'll do the censored version because I can't risk getting a dozen pages deleted and given a vacation. I'll post the originals here and anyone else can post those in the thread after the thread is done.
>>456246 >>456258 >Wow, thanks for going to all this effort! Glad it could be worth of notice for at least a few people, then.
>Yeah, the chronology's a bit of a mess with Archie. It's mostly due to several stories being written and published at the same time, which is still standard practise for comics nowadays, but believe it or not, so far, I have been able to organise each of those stories without a single timeline incompatibility, at least for the canon stuff. That's one thing I am quite satisfied about.
>I'll definitely be reorganizing all the comics If you try to follow the Reading Order I made, that might turn into quite a grind, but that's why I tried to maintain issues whole as much as possible to at least limit the pain. Either ways, good speed.
