Hey! I have read the first issue of Sonic Boom from archie...and...I find it good. Its hilarious and made me laugh!
I won't spoil the story in the issue, but there are a few things Im gonna point out.
first of all, the end, teases the next issue. so, while its a single story there is continuity between the issues.
it focuses more on comedy then the main comics but it got just as much action.
so whats different, from the main sonic aside from the designs and what we know so far? Well, Amy and Knuckles both got a slightly different personality change. And another thing. AMY IS NOT A SALLY ACORN CLONE!
since we heard she would be more mature people have said she would be a sally acorn clone. well she is more mature and it seems she can make plans here too, but thats it. she is not a tomboy or anything, so yeah. not a sally acorn clone.
As for Knuckles? He is more of an idiot. Nothing against it, I mean knuckles has been portrayed as an idiot in other sonic stuff so I guess they just go all the way with it here. but there are some jokes here, that makes it fun with him being stupid too.
. ^^ I for sure enjoyed it, and it feels kinda good to have a little breather from a story that takes 4 issues, and have a comic with single issue stories. ^^
so yeah. more comedy, just as much action, and single story, and its a bit more different from the main sonic, but its still sonic at heart. if you like this, then you will love the comic! As for me? I can't wait for more Sonic boom!
