@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

As I'd hoped, I enjoyed #3 a lot more than the first two. Given that we know Tangle's coming in #4 I think that will be another case of Some Actual Story, a bit more substance than #1 and #2, and hopefully from the second arc on (if you can even call the opening issues an arc!) they'll be doing good stuff. So it has been a low-key launch to a slightly concerning degree, but I still find myself able to cross my fingers for the future.

Well I feel they saved the best introductory comic for last. I really like Tangle. Her power is not what I was expecting but it's unique to her in the Sonic series.. And she's got a good attitude. Blaze is Blaze I guess. I'm guessing she had no role in Forces due to how Sonic was telling her about recent events. But I found this issue the most fun and might have to check out a few more at least to see where they take on Eggman.

Yeah, this was fun. Still nothing earth-shattering, but enjoyable enough. I liked the art a lot too, it had a little more character to it than I expect from a book like this.

First of all, kudos to this issue for having the best action of any of the intro issues.  Tangle's stretchy tail and Blaze's fire powers make for some splashy action sequences.  This is probably the first issue I would call "good"...even if it still doesn't DO a whole lot plot-wise.

 

I do have one BIG problem for something the issue DIDN'T do, though...

 

Spoilers, because I'mma gunna rant...it's mostly going to be negative....

Spoiler

 

On the other hand...I guess the book is selling.  Issue 1's going into a third printing and 2 and 3 are getting second prints.  People are buying this book.

https://www.bleeding...iple-printings/

 

Frankly, I'm more interested to see how Issues 5-8 sell, since they aren't getting a special event, and people will have to wait between issues.  Maybe all those sales will dry up...or maybe I'm just being a fuddy duddy, I dunno.

 

On a more positive note...who are everyone's favorite background extras in the comics so far?  Personally, I like Long-Hared Light-Pink Cat Girl from 3 the best, followed by Short-Haired Dark-Pink Cat Girl from 3, then White Sheep Girl and White-and-blue Puppy Kid from 2.  That's one more positive, I guess, some of the Background Ponies Extras have fun little moments behind the main action, and even little bits of character shine through.

I guess it's a matter of perspective, but as a long-time comics reader I'm accustomed to threads such as Who's The Secret Villain lasting months or years. At this point we've only been waiting three weeks, so it will be quite a while before I run out of patience on that front. 

 

Great point re: the extras though. There have been a stack of cool designs in the background characters.

Again, just me being negative, feel free to skip.  Also, spoilers for random Marvel/DC comics stories.

Spoiler

 

And just to keep things fun...

 

For the girls from issue 3, I dub thee...

 

Rose.  The sarcastic and sassy tomboy.  Named so because she is more red than...

 

Thorn.  The sweet and soft-spoken lady. Named so because irony.  

 

These two are almost always together and are BEST FRIENDS (and/or possibly sisters/twins).

 

 

 

For the girls from issue 2, I dub thee...

 

Mindy.  The motherly worrywart.  A little high-strung, but responsible and dependable when the chips are down.  Named so because Animaniacs references.

 

Buttons.  The curious adventurer.  Sometimes gets into trouble, but always bounces back and never lets things get her down for too long.  Named so because of the button-like thing on her head.

 

Mindy is always looking after Buttons (and maybe the other kids in town) and TRYING to keep her out of trouble (based on them sharing all of 1 panel together  :p )

 

 

 

 

EDIT: I guess these guys already have names!  Some even popped up in Archie comics!  A lot of the background extras in 3 are based on the artist's fan characters.

 

Jade the Cat, Crystal the Cat, Lanolin, and Meringue.

Read 1-4. I'm going to assume Ian Flynn was mandated to keep everything super simple.

Rough and Tumble are ok but not super flashy, colors wise. Tumble has that trick tho.

The art in 4 is rather messy wild at first but whoa, Tangle comes out pretty awesome! Design is kinda busy but great gimmick! If she was a game character, I can't figure how they would do her tail mechanic.

So that's four artists. Will Tracy be the regular one? They're all really good. I'm thinking the new ones are being extra flashy since it's their debut? (If it is)

Yay for Ian Flynn pulling it off! Hope everybody gets a higher pay!

Well, That's Who That Guy Is, I Guess. I'm too new to be sure of how we should feel about that reveal. Does it work? Is it stupid?

Enjoyed the issue though. Nice to have Tails, Amy and Knuckles all present.

Where did the skirt come from anyhow?

I'm liking this but it seems to be going pretty slow. I'm used to Flynn keeping things dense. There's so much he could cram into the issues but he's not doing it.

Still, love the philosophy stuff with Shadow and redemption reasoning from the other issue.

Now, who's this new mystery hero?

Also, Flynn must have written these months in advance. Since Mania Plus came out with Mighty and Ray, how long until he can fit them in the story?

I...don't think he CAN use Mighty and Ray in the comic, since they're "Classic" Sonic characters and this is a "Modern" Sonic book.  We'll see, and I could always be wrong or things could change, I guess, but...I wouldn't get your hopes up.

They are game characters so there isnt any reason they cant be used. If anything their inclusion in Mania Plus might promote them to higher status in modern gaming.

All Im getting from that is there isnt any immediate plans. Not that they cant use them.

Though why Cream and Omega where off limits at Archies end is a weird thing. Though why anyone would care about Cream disappearing I have no idea. And Omega I just think didnt fit in with Eggmans current bot design in recent years and would have looked out of place in the end of Archie issues.
