We haven’t done an edgy fancomic in a while! It’s a new Sonic.EXE comic and it’s still updating and pretty frequently, too! There’s something wrong with Sonic! Shadow and Silver would like to know but they’re too busy bleeding and dying! This is In Depth!
Website update: Instead of fixing the images like I was supposed to, I've made some changes to the backend so that we now have comic backlinks. This means that every post that's linked to on one of the comic pages will now have a link back to the comic! You can see what I mean by opening any of the early threads. This means the archived threads and the comics pages are now fully integrated with each other! >>460183 Typical Sonadow comic amirite? >>460185 Rock-sama really is too powerful >>460187 >silver: there is? i'm still on that iblis trigger thing Maybe Sonic's the Knothole traitor! >>460193 The minor spelling and grammar mistakes genuinely make the story more enjoyable >>460197 Oh boy, zombie twinks! >>460202 Hey, it's Silver's rarely seen static shock powers! >>460203 Jealous! >>460206 Would! Seriously though, it's a great start to an edgekino comic

It seems needlessly complicated, to me, but impressive.
>>460180 SOoC Chapter 003 - Page 055 https://www.deviantart.com/justtheauthor This was originally a 12mb gif so I've converted it to webm >>460217 Whoops, I meant to underline instead of spoiler that >>460218 Thanks! Yeah, it's definitely needlessly complicated, but self-indulgent stuff like that is exactly what hobby websites are for!
>>460213 That was considered at a point but decided to turn it into a whole chair and chamber combo. AI Sally is very much like Mecha Sally but more aware. >>460214 Seeing the glass half full. I can dig it. >>460215 This feels like it's skipping all of the game stuff and getting to... whatever is going on with Elise. >>460216 Too busy trying to get these corrupted mobians to mate. >>460217 >The minor spelling and grammar mistakes genuinely make the story more enjoyable Always fun to see in fancomics. >>460305 There's so much variety in the fancomic space.
I remember a panel where Sonic walk alongside Sally saying something along the line of "wait, you mean that it would have been actually okay if I had punched Geoffrey?" But I can't remember seeing it in the ride. Does anyone know where it was from? Was it from a fan-comic?
>>460322 nicole looks so sexy in that! >>460324 Oof... Thats kinda mean lol. They arent the best lackeys but thats just kinda like mechas destruction >>460325 Sonic cant help but be happy. But man, nice to see Sally in this get saved. Can't wait to see what they do next. Also sally is real cute in this, really like the red eye lids, its cute!
>>460217 Another website update Finally figured out what was causing the thumbnails in post previews to not work properly. It's finally working! >>460322 >everyone's commenting on Nicole's translucent dress >no one's commenting on best boy Ash in that absolutely slutty pose You're all plebs, every one of you! >>460324 At least they finally got their promotion >>460327 Nice! I can't wait to seduce the Twilight Cage Pirates! >>460328 Oh man, I'd love to get that good with 3D modeling >>460330 It stopped for a while so I kinda forgot about it. Happy for you to post it or to do it myself. It's really good, although the one with Silver and Blaze is even better. That one's not freely available yet though
I drew a sick tails idea, what if Miles tails instead of flying were burning to aid with the cool red trenchcoat and gun combo... i based it after an AI generation but i think the result came out really well.
>>460332 >Finally figured out what was causing the thumbnails in post previews to not work properly. It's finally working! Yay!
>spoiler The one with Silver and Blaze is the one called haunted and the one I am talking about and it's getting slowly updated on furrafinity, if I am not mistaken. Our Secret with Shadow and furry Mariah, on the other hand, is finished and I just realised that.
I love hate that scrambled arc, on one hand, really shows why eggman is someone you don’t fuck with. On the other, unless it’s really sonic, literally no other character can really give him some real pushback or defeats. Not just this but the franchise in general. Makes a lot of characters kinda look like shit to later prop up sonic as the only guy to really defeat him a lot of the time. More characters shiuod be able to fight him and get some victories too if encountered imo
>>460354 It feels like a mandate thing at this point. Sonic and Eggman forever fighting each other but never actually beating the other. I know that becomes a thing at one point, especially in IDW, but it feels that way in this comic. Unfortunately it's really bad at this point because Eggman is unstoppable and yet when Sonic is after him, he's not so unstoppable. Also why both could end things forever but don't.
>>460180 Nectar: The World Before 73 https://www.deviantart.com/icys From the author: >I tried to draw background, please don't let me draw background ever... Also I'm proud of my Shadow's ass-- I mean his back drawing here. It's certainly got my seal of approval!
>>460336 Very nice! Being a kitsune, it makes sense Tails would have fire powers >>460339 She should! >>460341 Thanks! >haunted Yeah, I completely mixed them up >>460343 Looks like Aleena in the thumbnail, nice! >>460345 We need more older Kit art! >>460354 I liked the arc, but I prefer Eggman to only talk up being a massive threat that's only a slight effort from world domination. He could easily overrun most cities' local forces (local militia, GUN, FFs, etc), but wouldn't be able to hold it once reinforcements arrived. I was fine with him taking over most of the world in Forces since Infinite could just conjure up entire armies of Shadow/Chaos/Zavok/etc. It'd only been six months so I could see the resistance getting wise to his tactics and winning back ground even without Sonic and Tails >>460355 I'm actually fine with Sonic and Eggman never scoring a decisive victory, but they should be able to win battles here and there. We were a bit spoiled in Archie since Sonic (really Snively) killed Robotnik and he (more or less) stayed dead. IDW complaining below:
My main issue with the stalemate in IDW is it never feels earned. It's fine when they let Eggman go in Boom since he's mostly just a nuisance, but IDW Eggman has an astronomical bodycount, to the point where random civilians would put a drill wisp through his head. Making Sonic have an arbitrary no kill policy to avoid this is a massively unsatisfying way to keep Eggman alive, especially when Game, Archie, and even Movie Sonic are totally fine with killing when necessary.
Instead, I want to see Eggman doing something clever to get away, only for Sonic and friends to counter it, but not enough that he still doesn't get away. Eggman's supposed to be a survivor, and having Sonic just let him go robs us of cool villain gloating when he gets away properly
>>460356 Sonic Universe is still a great comic, but I was expecting more stories where we see others give Eggman some serious pushback
>>460365 As he should be. Not only did he kill the original Robotnik but he's also considered a greater danger because he can foolishly destroy the planet. As a threat on his own he's pretty harmless but with access to other technology he can be a major threat. But at the end of that story, Eggman won and Snively is done.
>>460362 Hey, it was a lot of fun! And I'm not just saying that because of the Sonknux scenes or that the update lets you play as Knuckles! >>460366 People tend to forget he's a genius and close to Robotnik's level when it comes to tech. I guess all the groveling he does kinda undermines that >>460372 I see our special friend's back. I think he's got a crush on me!
>>460375 >I see our special friend's back. I think he's got a crush on me! He was the one asking about the missing Sonic X pages from the start of the series and I'd bet he was the one yesterday bringing up the Rally4Sally thing. He always comes in and starts random stuff but sticks to a few topics he's been using for years. Everything else is just random drama and arguing. I ignore all of it so if it is or isn't him I never give him attention.
Sonic and the Freedom Fighters Issue 5 Page 14 https://mobiuscomics.com
It’s easy for Sonic to act on his own and do his own thing but being a leader means he has to think about everyone. Sonic has the leadership skills but this is what happens when he doesn’t accept responsibilities. Probably should’ve listened to Sally instead of… well… you know…
I genuinely don’t know how my joke post about the page of Mordred being curb-stomped by Silver had actual argument and people thinking I was genuinely upset he lost as if there was gonna be any other result?
>>460382 I am a bit compulsive in replying to posts aimed to me, I just find it more funny that people actually thought i got actually mad at the page. Like I love the snek but dude got beaten by a rock and Vector giving him the classic Aussie back of the head punch, he’d need some serious bullshit to even fight Silver.
>>460378 Yeah, I ended up making an account just to archive Sonic art >>460379 Yeah, that was 100% him >I ignore all of it so if it is or isn't him I never give him attention. Hey, you're talking about the future Mr Thirstposter there! >>460380 Love the posing in the last panel >>460381 I saw it as mostly playful shitposting
>>460387 We've had a minimum of 29, a maximum of 68, and an average of 45 for the Archie threads. For the rest, we've had a minimum of 8, a maximum of 135, and an average of 28. We're definitely getting a lot more posters in the Archie threads, and I've been seeing way more hits on the website since we swapped over to Archie. Actually, we just passed one million visitors!
>>460388 Nice! I find the trends in the Archie threads to be interesting. Tails focused threads get a lot more people and activity. Knuckles was really struggling. Same with Sonic X. And Mega Man is doing really well.
>>460309 Pretty much, from what I can tell. I do like how it shows how much less interested S&FF Robotnik is in killing or conquering the world that he doesn't harm Sally herself and simply copies her mind into a robotic double. Being an actual scientist, albeit a totally amoral one, ironically makes him more 'nice'to deal with than Archie Eggman.
>>460311 I think most people are still assuming your Eggman is as evil as Archie's or Fleetway's and haven't realized that he'd never use something like roboticization or the Metal Virus or stuff like that - those are all tools of conquest, whilst this one is just a scientist trying to learn all he can in morally dubious ways.

As I suspected, ASO is doing their own Super Special!
>ASO is proud to announce Sonic Super Special Online! Our new, ongoing series revives the classic Sonic Super Special series published from 1997 to 2001. News will be infrequent as we prioritize our two main titles, but get excited for Sonic Super Special Online #16, now in production!
>>460431 Xander's hippy brother sticking around as Emerald Spears leader makes them better. He can slowly radicalize as Wily wrecks the future more while still being a threat Mega Man can't just shoot.
>>460473 It's not always incest, in fact here's one where he's valiantly putting himself between Tails and Amadeus to prevent incest! Seriously though, I've never seen any smut of him and his wife, which is kinda sad
>>460465 Interesting issue where it turn out the person codenamed King is actually a King and the one who has been turned into Serving Robotnik is actually the traitor.
More Seriously, I think Silver's confusion can actually be explained. The bits he had of history indicated a Founding member of the FF betraying them all and he didn't consider Roboticization as an heel-turn. He had betrayal in mind, not brain-control.
If only I could bet money on which posts were the schizo, I'd be rich. Might be risking if the replies he gets are him or someone gullible enough to give him attention. The Archie threads get more people that might not be used to his antics.
>>460507 The part about any person really trying to point fingers when they're taking part in this fandom in the first place as an adult is what really gets me. Not so high and mighty are they think they are.
>>460509 It's always best to ignore the obviously negative stuff that attacks people in the threads. He's also the only one that talks about Geoffrey fucking Sally, only one who will say diapers, randomly bring up the Rally4Sally thing, and any other meltdown about Tails. But it's all the randomness and lack of subtlety.
>>460511 Yeah I know. Only thing he's right about is how much of a loser kuta is. but yeah, stirring shit in the threads is a dick move. Funny thing tho, claims only like 40+ year olds like the comic but people already proving that wrong, and hell, i'm in my early 20s and like it.
>>460507 I wonder if he's still a janny? I put out a few posts implying he's a janny but they didn't get deleted. My posts linking to here haven't been deleted in a while either. Imagine being such a garbage person even 4chan mods won't put up with you! >>460508 I was kinda surprised with that one, but he's probably running out of ideas >>460509 He's literally a 4chan janitor (or used to be), he's really not in a position to argue over life choices >>460512 Too bad he doesn't realize how similar Kuta and he are. SatAM/Archie's got a real timeless quality that seems to resonate with fans from any generation. It's kinda ironic since Sonic as a brand is supposed to be about whatever's currently cool
>>460513 >My posts linking to here haven't been deleted in a while either. Welp! >>460515 It's almost always the same guy. I know that some would think it's multiple people but The Unofficial Ride had a really small number of anons posting so when he starts shitting up threads, it's obvious. Because he lacks subtlety and has the same posting behavior. It comes from years of seeing his antics. And as always, shitposting means things will get deleted.
>deletes the posts pointing out Hitler's a loser >doesn't delete his /pol/sperging lmao >deletes my post pointing here Oh IDWkun, you do care! >>460515 It's the same guy. He got lazy a while back and didn't rotate IPs so when he was IP banned we got to see which posts were his. I did a rundown here: >>458051 >>460516 If no one bites he just sockpuppets. He got me a few times too though >>460517 >Welp! And now we know he's still a janny, and that he almost certainly reads our threads here too! Didn't delete my posts implying he's a janny though. Lazy!
>>460520 Well he is a janitor, they're not exactly known for their bravery! Fun fact: the real reason I have a thread and post count on the website is to show how ineffectual he is. 776 threads and almost 270k posts and we're still here having fun!
>>460523 That's why it's always best to ignore any posts you think are by the schizo. Anything looking like a shitpost is best left ignored. People have gotten warning and even bans for replying to him.
https://boards.4chan.org/co/thread/141993084 In better news, Roll has a thread. Good to see awareness for the Archie Mega Man comic has increased.
>>460522 lmao, those are all fun at least! I'll have to look through the 4/co/ and /vg/ archives to see how long he's actually been around >>460523 Yeah, that's why I highlight deleted posts in the archived threads >>460524 Seconding this. I don't mind eating bans so I'll sometimes reply to him >>460531 Sonic's always been a magnet for autists and obsessives. Without them the fandom would be a much duller place >>460533 https://desuarchive.org/g/thread/94426353/ That's some serious dedication to janny bullying, naughty naughty! >>460534 >Sonic and Knuckles arguing in the background Well I'm sold!
>>460537 Around the time of Endgame. Antoine and Bunnie started their romance and Antoine stood up for Sonic against Geoffrey. You can thank Penders for both. >>460538 LOL >>460539 I guess Ian wanted them to work better when they were focused on saving Mobotropolis but when they were split up and had more time to interact with each other, they were able to get all their frustration out and understand each other.
One anon was a lil peeved at my post about archie and that uniform direction complaint I had. lol. I dont think I was saying I wanted archie to replace the games. Was basically trying to say I liked archie being a unique au to follow and just consider that uniform direction for most spinoffs that gets rid of any uniqueness a bit boring and lame. If everything is the same than whats the point, thats just how I see it anway.
Low key pisses me off when I see that one anon blame something on izuka all the damn time and some other isms. I fucking hate it. It’s never a good look and really does us look like the stereotypical bad look of Archie fans. Not to mention the constant pointing fingers at someone being a shitposter.
And yes, I know there really some some malicious people who sometimes troll, but not a fan when it gets to the point of when anyone says even remotely negative about the comic and stuff, schizo accusations constantly get thrown a lot. Like idk, I love you guys some just some things have been bothering when I go through threads. Needed to vent these things because it ticks me off.
>>460559 I wouldn't take it too seriously. Iizuka's the face of Sonic team and a lot of decisions do come from him but also from people above him. As for calling people the schizo, that's usually in response to shitposting. Some of us know through constant experience who that person is but others might not and will accuse the wrong people. It happens. But even last night it was obvious who he was because then a lot of posts were deleted at the same time and in a similar fashion TP's post with the link to this thread was deleted. As for the current thread, I won't claim anyone is the schizo. Too many people and I don't see the usual topics. Just some intense bickering over games and movies.
Think of it this way. If I can spend years dealing with the shit I get from the mods and that one person then you can handle some people on 4chan being weird and wrong.
Thinking about how this franchise since Generations to the remaster of it has been nothing but nostalgia pandering crap has got me quite miffed. Gens quite literally turned this franchise's identity into constantly referencing the past. I hate it so much. Stuff like that just makes me feel less happy in being a fan.
>>460551 I am considering putting Sonic All-star Racing right after “Sonic Rush Adventure: High Stakes on The High Sea” comic game-teaser, so just before issue #185. Sonic is already in an other dimension in Sonic Rush Adventure, so maybe he took a wrong turn at Albuquerque while trying to come back and bumped into all of those people he had allegedly already had a race with the previous year...
