ISSUE 34 OF IDW SONIC IS HERE AND I JUST READ IT!
Y'know what this means? REVIEW TIME!
So where were we so far?
Simple, to try and get new parts for Omega to fix him, Amy, Rouge and Cream head over to Sonic 4's White Park to participate in some Chao Races. Meanwhile, Shadow the Hedgehog follows a mysterious figure and Sonic and Tails go explore an abandoned Eggman base while someone follows them.
The issue starts the next morning after issue 33, Amy and Cream are sitting down for breakfast and Rouge shows up. They go off to resume taking part in the Chao Races and Shadow, who is spying on them, goes off to do his own investigation and ends up finding the head of Omega while in a room around the same time Cheese is participating and winning a Chao race.
Rouge, Amy, Cream and Cheese run into Shadow while meeting with the shady businessman Clutch, whom Shadow knocks out and reveals to be more shady than ever when its revealed he imprisons Chao who lose Chao Races. What a creep!
Meanwhile, Sonic and Tails are exploring the Eggman base thats probably Final Egg when they come face to face with Evan Stanley's new character Belle, who was apparently made by Eggman back when he was Mr. Tinker. Tails tries to hack into Eggman's computers, only for it to end badly as it sets off alarms and wakes up countless Eggman Badniks who are ready to attack...
Evan Stanley continues to do a great job more so than Ian Flynn despite the fact Ian was a solid writer, nothing is holding her back aside for maybe a few SEGA guidelines here and there but she is going all out and she's writing the Sonic characters very nicely. Shadow is well written, aside from the fact SEGA still wants him to be written the way he's been written during Ian's tenure on IDW.
I gladly give the issue a 9/10, this comic is quite the ride, Sonic is super awesome and inspiring to so many folks, including countless fanfic writers like myself and others I can name but some I can't.
Anyways, off I go now.
