Alrighty, most of you who voted wanted it and 6 PM was the most popular start time, so we are gonna storytime the first issue of Evan Stanley's fancomic, Ghosts of the Future.
Tails, Knuckles, and a bunch of others are dead. Great start.
Of course, I forgot to post the page.
>Playing Smash Run as Sonic
>Speed Maxed out
>Race to the Finish
Oh wow, it really is shadow. Os the edge
>I love making Sonic suffer in my comics, even though I still think he's great.
Is there anyone Evan does not want to make suffer?
>P.S. Sonic and Tikal might be a couple later in the series, if I can get over the weird factor of that...
That is a weird ship, but whatever.
It's from 2007.
And now Sonic is dead. Yay!
Why is this comic being posted?
It doesn't look very good.
And Eggman is dead.
We held a poll, people decided yes to storytiming it.
Sonic has Amy. Shadow has Rouge.
They needed a female counterpart/companion for Silver and were too lazy to create another new character. So they said "fuck canon" and threw Blaze into the game.
I believe Nicole shows up in issue 8.
there's more? damn it, how many more?
Time for Silver.
11 completed issues. She's working on the 12 one.
Blaze is here too.
I don't remember, I haven't read this in years.
>Blaze is not the guardian of any kind of shiny rocks, and is a much more friendly and easygoing individual. She is still friends with Silver, though, and plays the same "big sister" role in his life. she does not know about her pyrokinetic abilities.
>The large feline that appears on this page is not Big the cat, but just look a whole lot like him (I'm too lazy to invent a new character). Mr. Cat is not developmentally disabled in any way, and is father to Blaze. Remember, he is NOT Big. TOTALLY not Big.
he doesn't look very Chinese. though he's
a big guyI'll give him that.
>In the sonic universe, the particulars of Shadow's sleeping and eating needs are rather foggy. In this comic, he does eat and sleep, but much less than a regular person. Thus, in this page the lunch he's picking up will probably keep him full for the rest of the week. I just thought you should know that.
I didn't really need to know that.
And that ends the first issue of Evan's fancomic from 2007.
In an effort to not take up the image cap, one issue per thread/day would work fine, but if you have any suggestions, I'm here to listen to them.
Alrighty, votes still in favor of continuing, so we have issue 2 here, which is shorter than issue 1.
I've renamed the files that way I don't fuck up the order, hopefully.
She's one of the fe redeeming qualities of the game
Evan actually remade this page a year later. This is the original version, but if you want, I can post the remade version as well.
And we're back to Silver, I'm just posting this to cheer myself up
>this is where things start getting confusing. see, silver touches sonic when he's trying to run away, and accidentally gets a zap of chaos energy from sonic, as that is what sonic is made of.
>Playing Smash Run as Fox
>Got a good balance of stats, good speed
>Race to the Finish
>Realize one of my opponents is Sonic
>Race goes better than expected, running for 1st at the final stretch, everyone's miles behind
>Suddenly Sonic passes me out of nowhere
now I know what it feels like to be Sonic's friends
>silver is a little pussy. sure, things are tough, but he not used to all this action.
>The setting is Shadow and Sonic's apartment
So they live together.
Objectively, I don't believe she's ever gotten good.
>I haven't got time to write about this page right now, I'll edit this later.
>EDIT: or maybe I won't.
Yay, warp ring!
At least Shadow can get ghost blowjobs.
Silver has his powers now. He got them from touching Sonic earlier in the issue.
Beat Shadow and managed to get Silver to do this
excuse the flash just pretend it's some psychic thing, also S rank
And here is the remade version of this page >>83300238
Can I just say that Evan's improvement over the years is really inspiring, not just to artists, but to people like me as well. Anybody who can go from this to being arguably one of the best artists on the comic is someone I can admire
Was there any particular reason Mecha Sally was leagues above other roboticized mobians, other than the fact that she was a main character? I mean she's not that strong normally, so I don't see why she was so swole when she was a robot.
Did I miss a plot point, or was it just because MC armor and muh feelins?
Oh yeah, there was this news about V.I.P Aussies getting to see the premiere of Sonic Boom (T.V) on the 18th at Armageddon Expo
Also the merchandise they'll get to see first...and arm wrestle Sonic if wanted
I don't suppose it's worth asking how a scientist is meant to get around a lab walking on a giant ball of what looks like magnesium while avoiding laser-gates.
I know it's a video game but when you put it in a realistic setting with realistic humans in it you do have some expectations based on reality.
Of course, I also used a shovel too.
Another really weird thing is there is a platform you go on with a spring box in it and a telekinesis maker next to it. All you have to do is activate it and the box opens, what's the point? There's no challenge to it and it's just bad level design at it's worst.
>There are people that still thinks SATAM Robotnik is the superior Eggman
I mean He's still the best character of the entire franchice but the Saturday incarnation is not really that appealing.
He had a good voice, but honestly current Eggman is the best he's ever been.
>Leave a child alone with a dark god sealed in a dildo under a tree
>She must also never cry
A GUN Officer who thinks the world has 'gone too soft' and hates animals so assembes an army to 'clean house', his main interaction with Sonic is this:
>Commander Spander (for it is he): Finally you egotistic hippy drifter I have you where I want you. Now *he pulls out a revolver* lets see if the Sonic the Hedgehog is faster than a speeding bullet.
>Sonic (For it is also he): As much as I'd love to stay and chat I've got to go *he runs off, Spander fires at him as he flees into the distance*
>Spander: Blast him! The coward ran! He..
*Sonic suddenly returns in a cloud of dust*
>Sonic: Here, I brought a stopwatch *he produces one*, also you might need these *he drops the bullets on the ground in front of Spander*
Anything to get my mind off 06
>Sonic: Here, I brought a stopwatch *he produces one*, also you might need these *he drops the bullets on the ground in front of Spander*
I like it.
Can someone better versed in the comics chime in- Where do humans fit in the comics these days? Are they allies with Sonic et al.? Are they a mixed bag?
They're just kind of there and it's an unspoken rule that humans and mobians interact. No more great war or overlander bullshit. G.U.N as a whole could sum it up. They interact, no questions asked really
>The Trial of Memory
I imagine Sonic being in his AoStH form here, as for humans I'm sure an anon will answer
I happen to agree. Does anyone have that pic of all the human characters in the Unleashed style? They all look fitting and good in that style honestly. If they were to have humans again for some reason, I'd prefer that style
>Unleashed Style Katella
I'd imagine it'd be something like this,
I wonder who'd be best to commission a picture of her in that style
it reads exactly like a coldsteel joke. except you're actually being serious about it.
These people exists.
It's the novelty of being the first serious interpretation of the character, he served it's purpose in the story and was threatning enough to not make everything feel forced.
There's no such thing as best Eggman, they all aimed for different approaches SatAM Robotnik's development is completely different from his Underground/AOStH/comic/game incarnations, it's like Sonic, just because it doesn't your headcanon of how these characters should behave
Artists always have old shame, there's nothing wrong with telling them their art from when they were fucking...what, 14? Telling them that shit is bad means nothing. Only limp wristed whiny fucks complain about shit like that.
Oh god, I just remembered the sketches I did years ago.
>artists have old shame
There's nothing -technically- wrong with telling them their art was shit when they were 14, it just comes off as an obvious observation that may sound rude, regardless if the artist agrees or not, either way if you're a good artist you don't need people telling you your old art is shit, you can figure that out on your own, and if someone does come up to you and says that, it always gives a bad vibe.
Con Artist/Snake Oil Salesman who profiteers on the Eggman War Effort. They serve as an indirect antagonist, never directly opposing the heroes, but possibly giving a little aid to a regional Egg Boss or doing something that impedes a minor hero's progress from time to time in order to keep the status quo.
>It sounds rude
Boo fucking hoo.
This is like saying "Guuuuys don't ever say Hours sucked, that's mean to Bowie :("
Any artist who can't deal with negative opinions doesn't have what it takes to be an artist, plain and simple.
>drawing in class
I know what you're saying, and trust me I believe in what you said, but I digress, if there's something I learned about working in any industry period is to not act in a 100% rational (consequently negative) way, 90% of business consists of hugboxing, it doesn't matter how talented you are if people just don't like being around you they won't work with you, even if you're taking a backseat if you act too edgy you lose credibility points, it has been this way, and no, I don't know any special snowflake that will change it
Be careful anon, you sound like an anti archie member.
As far as I remember Mecha sally was not that much stronger than the other eggman robots
If I recall Tails and Amy could hold their own against her. But she was a lot smarter than any other. like she was able to adapt to many situations quite efficiently.
metal was the brawn and she was the brains.
The only times he's ever been "grimdar" was dark ages and maybe Eggman Empire. But he's mostly a balance of both and he's fun as hell to watch
>Goody two shoes
Every fucking time
I know these people just throw in random buzzwords to try and sound smart like Penders does, but come the fuck on.
Real talk? It was disgusting and cliche as fuck, mainly because Elise is a wouldn't even rape/10 and the whole gay ass thing with the music building up a crescendo and a big bright thing happens when they kiss.
The only way they could have made it worse is if everyone clapped when they kiss, followed by cheesy, forced, cringe-worthy statements about true love.
Well to be blunt
I was talking about beastiality.This isn't /a/ where we discuss our fetishes. Moving on.
The only true beautiful scene in 06 is the ending with Sonic looking up at the moon.
I had assumed Twitter had rules on this sort of thing.
Well, since it looks like mods are deleting sonic threads in /co/: What's the best option for buying a sub? I've looked at Archie's site, and there's twenty different ways. I already have a decent CBR reader, and I'd prefer not having a dedicated app
that someone can easily see over my shoulder.
>tfw could only play emulated Unleashed (Wii)
>tfw I had no idea about chao pedoguy
>tfw started playing Unleashed Project and saw something about him, and immediately thought it was something I missed from the HD version
feels bad man
>dat qt girl in Adabat
>always talk to her just to wind up her dad
I think I'm done here
Well /sthg/ I've finally finished Silver's story in 06, I honestly preferred it to Sonic's simply because of Blaze and broken physics. That and I've gotten used to the games badness.
Well tomorrow it's Shadow and the final story, wish me luck.
You mean like this guy?
>don't have a next gen console
>ain't got no pc
>might as well try downloading Unleashed for the Wii
>uTorrent Mobile doesn't download files higher than 4GB
O-okay, I guess I'll just watch a playthrough...
I am still writing the Sonic CD Adaptation, mostly to pass the time, other because it's pretty fun. but I still gotta write a second draft before I can break it down to the comic format
Well that's noted then but I do like a bit of a challenge, might as well get it all done and move on to Episode 1
Well, I hope the result is good. If my own art was better I'd write and draw my own comic. I'd even chip in if you wanted
The only thing you can do now is to see if the outline I previously posted is any good (though as of now it isn't exactly the same thing, I changed a few things), or to see if anything I wrote that's supposed to be funny is even funny, who knows, I might scribble something resembling a page
Yeah, was hoping for something more elegant than that. I should mention that just buying the app is troublesome because I plan up upgrading from my iPhone to an android device at some point.
Well as I learned earlier humour is subjective so be mindful of that, having never written a comic before (at least properly) I can't really give much insight.
That's good to hear, I've heard the special stages are a pain.
I would figure the apps are free and you just need to sign into an account with your sub on it.
Switching to an android shouldn't cause much trouble, since you can probably just download the app and sign in.
I don't really know what that is.
Though it can't be any less convoluted than my idea of a AoStH Unleashed adaptation.
Time will tell, sooner or later, time will tell.
Also this comic talk reminds me I need to catch up on the series. Before 06 maybe. (It's issue 254 to start the reboot right?)
No, you haven't seen that one, some Anons were throwing around ideas back in the ride and I wrote a thing, which is basicaly if AOStH had a Silver episode and a Knuckles episode meshed together. The outline of that thing is absurd.
Sure thing, buddy. Have a good one, and this quick AOStH-kinda Amy I scribbled.
I don't know, maybe if I try a more affeminate pose? Make the eyebrows less detailed, it's weird, probaly why I like new Amy better. The AOStH look is very old-school, everyone at the time were doing the looney tunes, they were doing like, Smile Darn Ya Smile: Sonic Edition, or hell, the Earlier Ralph Bakshi stuff, not to be confused with Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures which is a totally different, but pretty heavy, influence for the show.
eh, since we're doing some drawfaggotry tonight, here is some Blaze i sketched.
I don't think I like the model though, gonna change the style until I find the one I like, maybe draw more closely to Uekawa's style.
Anyone else remember there being more than one game where Eggman's holding a gun to Amy's head? Saying stuff like "Sonic! What are you doing? Hurry up or I WILL kill her!"
Yeah, 'cause I'm pretty sure that happened. And not long after that he tried to explode Sonic in space.
>maybe draw more closely to Uekawa's style.
This would be extremely desirable.
Unrelated, but still SA2, who the hell was talking when I got to the gravity part of the Sonic ARK level, he says something like "you'll never get out of this one alive, ha-haaa!", he sounds nothing like any of the characters
Made a small
Rosalina Nicolesketch for you guys. Sorry if it isn't that good. If it's sideways then my apologies, phone camera always does this for me.
>hnng, see ya. Ruthless bunch
Good buddy, keep improving.
Eggman is a goofy motherfucker, don't you start with me.
And that's why I'm asking why fans like to make him that way in their comics.
Every other fancomic has super turbo hitler mcmurder Eggman.
Eggman is complicated. On the one hand he can be a heartless destructive maniac hellbent on world conquest, but on the other hand he behaves (or at least presents himself) like a gentlemanly man of reason and grandiose mannerisms. And also a goofy motherfucker at times.
I really don't know how Eggman should be written but Turbo Hitler and Goody-Two-Eggs are both very wrong interpretations.
I'm of the belief that Adventure Eggman is a result of Sega not knowing how to bridge the JP/US gap, and just bad writing in general.
Things like launching nukes and pointing guns at people's heads just doesn't seem his style at all. He'd have to do it in a cool, fun way, like literally sucking the life out of the city or smashing someone with a giant robot.
Dead of night, on my computer, with either music or some kind of LP going on in the background. The fan's on, I've got some water and pretzels, and I'm covered in a nice heavy blanket.
What the fuck
I started reading that and just burst out laughing
I could see him dropping bombs and pointing guns but only after everything has royally pissed him off. Until then, yes, I mostly picture him doing things in strange or over-the-top ways just to prove he's brilliant enough to make it work. For example, he'd be the type to dig an entire city out of the Earth and airlift it away, because no one other than Eggman could succeed at that.
Except when Bowser stole the castle in Paper Mario. I like to compare the two villains; they're loud, egotistical, stylish, confident, and daring. A shame Archie can't get that Mario comic because I'd read the shit out of Eggman vs. Bowser shenanigans.
I'm more weirded out that Bunnie and Twan's kids have robotic parts. That doesn't seem like something that could be genetic. Unless they also had problems that required mechanical limbs
I know some critics complained that they look like Pixar rip-offs, but I don't think that holds much weight since I feel sonic is used as a punching bag by the video game "press." I'd definitely like to see Gurihiru do more work on Sonic though.
>You feel that Sonic is used as a punching bag
That's fact at this point. You've seen it, they play bad on purpose just to make it look bad. But enough negativity
You know, looking back at all the old issues really, really makes me appreciate what we have now. We may have a few hiccups here and there, but we will never be this bad again
I could see the Pixar comparisons(though I don't think they're bad). As much as I like the Unleashed humans, I think it would have been better if they were more similar to Ub Iwerks, the Fleischer brothers, or even Osamu Tezuka design for humans. If only because that style is close the the "classic rubber hose" design you see in the main Sonic characters. Even Eggman's design would fit in a cartoon or comic produced by the mentioned people.
>A GUN Officer who thinks the world has 'gone too soft' and hates animals so assembes an army to 'clean house'
What was your inspiration?
Creams original concept art included her as a fox and a squirrel. Obviously they went with rabbit in the end.
>tfw no qt squirrel loli
I always forget how much of a shitty OC Ash looked like until I see him again.
He looks like he needs a long wordy description next to him about his likes and dislikes, with "My Chemical Romance" under likes and "popular kids" under dislikes. That sort of shit.
Oh well. Maybe some other day.
Pic is her prototype designs.
He is really insufferable, even without Mina's "help" I'm just looking at pics of some of the older comics and I've realized that Flynn didn't get amazing until 180 or so, at least in my opinion. Maybe it's the art too
Silver's come a long way from his prototype designs.
Dark Ages, specifically the time when they got hit by the huge anime craze at the time. What became of that, I shiver upon its mention
Or should I say Venice the Mink.
I'm really glad they went with Silver.
By sheer goddamn willpower alone. That and Ian's fanboyism. Also, I just found out this existed
Apparently Slott is fucking Spider Man in the ass. At least we never had Daniel Way on the comic. God help us if we did
is the music quality the same in every version of sonic adventure?
i was looking at the adx files from the steam version and foobar says they're 1411kbps 44100Hz, i'm curious if the files are any different on dreamcast or gamecube but not curious enough to rip both of them.
How about you nerds fight me IRL?
Why is Knuckle's Parents are the WORST Parents?
Were you that young or did you literally walked in the grocerie store, found the new StH issue, gazed at the cover and handed it to the cashier so you could just have it?
Oh man, it's like getting mail delivery, and the chinese intentionally fucked up your purchase.
My personal calender date I'm looking forward to is StH #320
When the amount of Sonic comics under Flynn will be equal to the number pre-Flynn aka #160
Five years I'm waiting. I wonder if Unleashed will be finished by then. Maybe if they push forward Sonic/Megaman : World's Do the Tango.
>tfw you will never clang your waifu
I'll be good enough to drawfag for you guys one day. Today is not that day.
Yeah, people like to say 160 on is good, but it's just relatively good. Birthday Bash and "I Am" are pretty much the only good stories until 174-176, which is also not the best thing ever but pretty good.
Well guys I'm about to start Shadow's story in Sonic 06
Also while I've been told I should never write again this idea came to me anyway. Thunderbolt is probably in love with Eggman but it's also likely that Eggman is completely uninterested in her and thus rejects her advances. Likewise a certain space huntress by the name of Katella falls madly in love with Eggman and is scorned by him. The two ladies meet and decide to form a pact to kill (well, really *really* hurt) Eggman and make his life an abject misery a la Carrie Fisher's character in The Blues Brothers. Occasionally turning up at the wrong moment to slash his tyres or burn his robot factories while hoping he might suddenly show affection for them they will of course try and stab each other in the back if he did.
>Well guys I'm about to start Shadow's story in Sonic 06
Truly a masterplan
Was this guy
right on the money?
Were you making a subtle crack at Xander, or are you literally so retarded that you accidentally stole an existing Archie Comics character?
>Dick and Dom interviewing Yuji Naka later tonight
Unless you're a britbong, you won't know these 2 guys, but this is fucking surreal.
I never actually watched Dick and Dom but I nevertheless have to see this. Also
>@dickndom @davidspringate @nakayuji Ask him why there hasn't been a good Sonic game since 2.
>Tails has the ability to hover
You know I've been thinking of getting a 3DS for a while now (I haven't had a handheld since the SP). What are some games /sthg/ would recommend?
Also another fight with Egg-Cerberus (shouldn't he have three heads then?)
Yeah, poor guy. Still, at least we can play as him.
He flies straight up in the air then drops like a log after a short time, and it's really hard to adjust his altitude. He can't do physical attacks either, he just throws ring bombs at people which is finicky and to top it off he's slow and makes a whooshing sound when he uses his tails.
Most characters in 06 will never stop.
What I mean by that is that when Sonic falls, if you tap left he DOESN'T STOP GOING LEFT. Tails is the same way when he lies, so maneuverability is difficult.
