Reviews: Archie Comics Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic Universe post reboot reaction (55-67)

So far, so good, in my taste.

Okay, that's too simple, let's start with my problems with the reboot. I've been waiting years, FREAKING YEARS, to see Black Doom since his appearance back in issue 170, and now we finally have freaking Team Dark fighting the evil Black aliens... except they are not fighting the invasion for the first time, apparently, Shadow the Hedgehog is now canon with the comics and the fight with Doom happened Off-Panel/In a Broad Strokes kinda way. Bullshit!

I mean, what a freaking disappointment!

Okay, we got that out of the way, let's talk a little about the arcs:

1) Pirate Plunder Panic : I kinda dislike when Yardley! writes the script, I mean, I love his artwork, but his writing seems okay compared to Ian Flynn (I like him, but is just my opinion). I do however like this arc, finally we see Burning Blaze! Still, Blaze is kinda disappointing in the comic series, since she doesn't really have that big storyline compared to Silver. She is just an extra character. This arc was fine, a refreshing arc for the Big Crossover with Megaman (which I don't like that much).

2) The dark trilogy however, is doing great! We see this new character, Eclypse, who, I'll admit, I was not very fond of him, don't know, reminds me of a fanfiction character, but with time, I got to like him, with his relationship with the black arms. Chip from Unleashed finally appears, and the fact he is going with Knuckles instead of Sonic, and Charmy was the one who called him Chip, seems pretty clever for me.

Overall, the crossover and reboot killed the mood of the series for me for a while, but now, I think I don't have a problem with seeing how the Archie staff solve this.
