This is why I wish I were a subscriber! I'm so pumped for more Silver. I'm loving the arc so far and have been buying both covers the moment I can. I begged my brother to go pick up both covers for me on Wednesday because I unfortunately work all day and won't have time (and well, the city I work in doesn't have a comic shop which makes me so sad). CAN'T WAIT!

So is 278 coming out today or next week? Last month 277 was pushed back a week correct?
Also reminds me I re-started my subscription back in September and haven't gotten a new issue yet...

Aw. That's less than pleasing. I'm really looking forward to it because I know it's gonna be better than the Sonic Boom theory I was asked to read earlier.

Ah, the new Archie App's already got the preview pages up. I'll just wait for Archie themselves to post them up properly, but I'll say this much:

Spoiler: show
The new Freedom Fighter team is lead by Spike the Porcupine. His teammates include Sonar the Fennec, and Trevor Burrow (the mole). Trevor is Mr. Purple-Sunglasses-Guy from 279's cover. Also adorable Big is adorable.

I wonder if Spike is based on the now can't be used Dylan Porcupine from the Substitute Freedom Fighters.

Spoiler: show
Wonder how different Sonar looks considering that there's a section of fans that pin Tails down as a Fennec fox (even though the tails and ears are more standard fox).

Any chance of someone with the app at least posting screens of the characters to sate curiosity?

Oh, so they're basically like a parody of team Sonic in terms of species, I get it now.

Spoiler: show
It's obviously intentional, but I wish they tweaked at the porcupine guy's design a little more.
Image
The fox girl and mole dude looks good, but he looks like a terrible Sonic rip-off.
I'm sure there's more ways to distinguish a porcupine from a hedgehog.

(random image i picked off of google)

Making his hairstyle more bunched together and lower/higher, perhaps? Or maybe put more quills on his back?
Like the prototype design for Silver:

Kinda funny you should say that...

Spoiler: show
There were multiple passes at these guys -- my version had a big bundle of messy spines loosely tied back, but that wasn't picked for the final. Oh well~

Really?! Man, I bet I wouldve loved him more if he had that design! Anything other than this!

(apology to whoever designed the current one)


Image
I mean, Echidnas and Hedgehogs in Sonic's universe look pretty different, so why not Porcupines?

Image
(another random image off google)
Well, they can be similar to an extent but why too similar...?


(again, apology to the designer)

Spoiler: show
the porcupine and fennec I get, but I'm guessing the mole is something like "echidnas are also burrowing animals," which doesn't feel quite as on-the-nose

as to the quill discussion, they are at least notably thinner and more numerous than Sonic's
