Mad Scientist WannabeThat's... just... STUPID!
Of course, don't you know anything about ALCHEMY?!- Twin clones of Ivan the Great
Not really since the same exact thing was enforced by Sega.
The Protomen enhanced my life.
Just awesome like that
You're lucky. I stopped reading right before the "backwards" issue came out. Y'know, the one that GAVE HIS FUCKING CHANGE IN EYE-COLOR A RIDICULOUS AND POINTLESS ORIGIN STORY.No more ridiculous and pointless than Peter Parker more or less turning into a real spider and then giving birth to himself as just an excuse to give him organic web-shooters to tie into the movies.

Gamer-turning-makerAt least THAT tied back into the spider motifs. What happened in THAT issue? He uses the emeralds to turn into a whole bunch of one-off Super Sonic recolor forms in an attempt to run around the world and redirect this time-distortion-whatever blast heading towards Mobius. Instead the blast hits him and his eyes change color. ABSOLUTELY. POINTLESS.

We're Watching YouIt doesn't make it any less stupid, it just makes it stupid *and* endorsed by Sega. And Sega itself isn't exactly a stranger to applying stupid ideas to the Sonic franchise.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of eternal vigilance is eternal paranoid fear.
Just awesome like thatBut Sonic '06 was the apex of the Sonic franchise and the most emotional story I've ever seen. I cried Manly Tears at the tragic hedgehog/human romance. I felt dirty typing that *shudder*
Most of the best handled emotional moments are those handled within the proper realms of the Sonic mythos anyway. Perhaps the most heartwrenching moment in the whole series was just a deconstruction of a badnik popping open. Someone getting tragically gunned down in a government conspiracy or suffering angst from some political or soap opera hoo-hah just comes off as laughable when it's done by a bunch of candy colored animals.

Just awesome like thatI'm trying to remember how that went...it rings a bell, but I can't remember the issue or story or too much about it at all. Oh, hey, was there ever any resolution to that plot thread where Nack the Weasel was hired to assassinate Mina while she was singing in concert?

....Ahhh. my scans became corrupt, gotta start working so I can buy them
Even those mysterious British Sonic comics had Robotnik undergoing the transformation from his "Classic" look to the beloved "Pingas" design, but even they put a stopping point there, by putting Eggman's jacket on Aosth Robotnik in a later story and rightfully calling it a day.I saw that late "Sonic Adventure" issue where he put on the jacket, and in that case it worked because Robotnik's design had morphed so much from artist to artist that you couldn't tell for sure what he was based on by that point.
And Applejack is here too!
NOT THE BEESUnfortunately, the Archie artists are...well... Let's just say I wouldn't really trust them to pull off a gradual art drift like that. It's not as amusingly awful as the Penders days, but they're still kinda...yeah.

Just awesome like thatEh, maybe they're going by what the AoStH artists were told: "Draw expressively, not well."
NOT THE BEESI can get behind that. These◊ things◊ are◊ drawn◊ expressively◊ but not particularly well. And the recent Sonic artists are better than in days past. This, ◊ though, is...miscellaneous. There's like a minimum standard of basic proportions involved in expressive-but-not-well.

Just awesome like that@Pikachu: His head is dented outwardly? Alternatively, he has a bump on his head? Is it from those pesky Spearow again? @The last image: Knux, we need to talk about getting you on a diet. That reminds me, anyone here ever read any of the Knuckles comics? I've heard those were actually much better than the Sonic ones. I've only read a few, and I don't remember much from them (mostly because I had little too little context to understand them, as the Knux comix were very story-based and continuity heavy). Either way, I put a bid on a lot of those on eBay the other day. Maybe I should've just gotten one of the trades that collected the issues, but eh, I like having the original copies.

SECOND BANANAI recall the original Mew art looked like a monkey with a bump on its head.
And Applejack is here too!
NOT THE BEESPikachu's always had poofy cheekbones. He's lost a little baby fat around the chin in recent years though. I remember getting one of the Knuckles comics. It was very continuity heavy and I jumped in somewhere in the middle so I had no fucking idea what was going on besides a vague idea of some of the characters

Just awesome like thatWell, should I win this auction, I'm getting some of the first few Knux comics, so I'll let you know whether it's worth trying to decipher
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
