Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 May 2019 - 03:54 PM)

Life is like a box of chocolates. Stay out of the sun or melt into a pile of gross slop.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

Life's a fillet of fish!

@  unluckiness : (18 May 2019 - 08:53 AM)

ow the edge

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 07:03 AM)

a reminder that life is an unrepentant hellscape where everyone & everything you know will eventually betray you.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  Gamma V : (18 May 2019 - 03:28 AM)

Haven't been here in a long time.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

@  Trpodeca : (17 May 2019 - 11:09 PM)

I voted. Boy there are a worrying amount of parties which sound like fascists.

@  Pennpenn : (17 May 2019 - 06:55 PM)

For those in Australia, it is a federal election today. Go Vote! It's Mandatory!

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2019 - 04:19 PM)

Cream and Omega were off limits for tail end Archie?!

Not tail end (they're all over the post-Genesis Wave era), but they were off limits for a while after first being introduced in the games. Eggman Nega from Sonic Rush was similarly forbidden and that never did get lifted.

Is missing Cream all that bad?

I liked her in Sonic Advance 2 but in everything else she's boring. Plus the fanbase seemed REALLY obsessed with drawing porn of her and Vanilla.

Keep in mind that the games still had a pretty small recurring cast back then, and the recurring female cast was even smaller. (Come to think of it, that also explains the porn thing.) And she turned up all over the place outside of the comics--I think Sonic X brought her into the main cast earlier than Amy, didn't it? So she was conspicuous in her absence.

Whisper looks kind of cool but might also become very annoying very quickly? Not a bad issue on the whole though. I like Silver, so that helps. Are these characters really allowed to say "crap"?!

Just picked up the first TPB. This comic is frigging amazing.

 

Also, Tangle needs to be in the actual games.

Sonic Shines the Spotlight on His Many Friends
in Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019


IDW Welcomes Yuji Uekawa, Sonic Team’s Revolutionary Designer, as Cover Artist


San Diego, CA (December 20, 2018) —IDW Publishing and SEGA of America, Inc. are proud to announce Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019, an oversized comic book extravaganza that showcases Sonic’s spectacular supporting cast!
 
Arriving in March 2019, the 48-page annual features the odd couple of Tangle the Lemur and Whisper the Wolf in the lead story, teaming up to save a friend in need. Additional stories see Sonic and Tails taking the Tornado out for a spin, Silver and Blaze planting a garden, the Sonic Fan Club holding their first official meeting and Rouge the Bat hunting for treasure!
 
To commemorate their first year of Sonicpublications, IDW welcomes three comic book creators to work on Sonic for the very first time: James Kochalka (of Johnny Boo fame), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), and Jack Lawrence (Transformers: Lost Light). Returning Sonic talents Ian FlynnEvan StanleyCaleb GoellnerJonathan GrayJennifer Hernandez, and Diana Skelly, plus newcomer Gigi Dutrieux, round out the creative team.
 
James Kochalka said, “Between playing the games and reading the comics, my mind has been living in the world of Sonic The Hedgehogfor several decades, so it’s wonderful to finally be able to actually contribute to that world.”
 
Ian Flynn said, “It’s been thrilling to be part of IDW’s run-away hit Sonic The Hedgehog, and I’m super-excited to spend more time with the brand-new fan favorites Tangle and Whisper!”
 
Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019 will be available with three variant cover artists: Jennifer Hernandez, Nathalie Fourdraine, and – as a special treat for fans of the Sonic games – Yuji Uekawa of Sonic Team, celebrated as the visionary behind the look of “modern” Sonic The Hedgehog!
 
“I am really happy to draw IDW’s original characters altogether with Sonic and his friends, as I had never imagined that I would draw these characters as official artwork,” said Uekawa. “As with many IDW Sonicseries fans, I personally love Tangle and Whisper, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their further adventures with Sonic, as well as seeing original characters in future issues!”

Read up to issue #13.

Neo Metal Sonic was done pretty fast. His dragon form was from Sonic Heroes?

Whisper, eh. Is the Whispon / Weapon something from the games or just for the comic?

Dr. Starline is Ian Flynn's new ... darn it, what's the name of the cool looking black and white Echidna scientist from the last continuity? Anyway, I like Starline and I hope Eggman doesn't turn him into a robot.

Yeah Metal's dragon form came from Sonic Heroes. The Wispon is an elaboration on the create-a-characters' weapon from Sonic Forces.

I absolutely love the the panel with Eggman fixing Metal and commenting that "Sonic wouldn't know true art if it punched him in the face...you did punch him in the face right? Attaboy!"

I didn't think the emotion that would trigger him would be Metal. So, he has a personal attachment to him. Paternal?!

Dr. Starline is... A duck or platypus? The supplement didn't say.

Not wild about Whisper but Tangle is fine.

Wow, reading that tweet makes me wonder what is wrong with Ken Penders.  Good thing Archie never allowed it to happen, especially in a family-friendly comic based on a video game series.
