I loved X's expression on that last panel of the preview. :(hearty laughter):

It's almost surreal to see him not having a serious face for everything.

Part of me thinks back to when Knuckles became the back-up stories in Sonic, and that didn't work so well. On the other hand, Penders seems to go for more decompressed storytelling, and Ian isn't Ken, so the question still stands.

I've thought about that, and I really hope we don't go that route. The back-ups we're featuring in upcoming issues are one thing - they're setting the stage of the MMX universe. But if I had to tackle MMX1 in 5-page backups? No. I can't be done - not well.

I suppose a 10/10 split would be okay. Not ideal, but I could work with that. But what I'd like best is if we could get a MMX spin-off broken into 6-part arcs. (Because there's no defying the Trade Gods, they demand sacrifices).


I hope we get that MMX spinoff. That sounds way better than having Classic and X share the book. Split down the middle at ten pages, it would take forever for either story to get to get anywhere, and I think that would really hurt the book long term. Having MMX at 6 part arcs would be good too. It'd be a lot easier to tell the story at a more comfortable pace that way.

Well it looks even harder for MMX to get it's own comic with the whole Boom thing needing its own, but i'm sure Archie will work out something, they always do.

Sonic and Megaman are hardly competing for screen time. We're still only working with side stories right now.. they haven't even confirmed a full series yet anyway.

If anything would compete it'd be Sonic Universe.

hopefully it means fresh writing talent. I like Ian and all, but variety is the spice of life.
