SONIC RETOLD - Issue 2, Page 8 by glitcher SONIC RETOLD - Issue 2, Page 8 by glitcher
Happy New Year! Here, we get out first look at Knuckles and Julie-Su trying to patch up Haven II. There were no good reference images of the facility, so I cobbled together something for the comic. Looks like Dr. Finitevus did a number on the place when he exiled the Brotherhood. I bet Tails and Rotor could fix the joint in no time if they weren't busy... you know... fighting for freedom and all that. I guess Knuckles ain't quite the gearhead. :hmm:

It would have been funny if when Knuckles rolled out from under the computer he said "Ow".

My question is why would Finitevus do something like this? Tekkie that he is, I'd expect him to have a certain amount of reverence for machinery. Well, yeah... he did try to use Knuckles to kill most everyone, but he must draw the line somewhere. It's too bad we never got a good look at how exactly Finitevus managed to subdue the entire Brotherhood. That I would have liked to see, especially since we had to suffer through so many boring issues where zip happened only to have an entire battle be little more than a reference.

I'm also curious why the Brotherhood would have a collection of creepy test tubes and laboratory equipment like this in the first place. Aside from keeping the occasional queen from an untimely death, what would they need all that for? At least Knuckles still has a talking head to help him figure out a more effective strategy. Dimitri would be the ideal person to tell him everything he needs to know about the Twilight Cage.

I've been trying to keep track of the Brotherhood's activities between the dingo regime and the time Finitevus breached Haven II. The comics are very scanty on the details; I haven't even found a good reference for Haven II. In hindsight, perhaps I misspoke earlier. To my understanding, it was the dingoes that caused most of the damage to Haven II, not Finitevus, when they took over the island. The Brotherhood retreated to the Master Emerald chamber and was severely weakened trying to fend off the invaders. It was soon after that Finitevus seized his chance to subdue the exhausted Brotherhood and conduct his experiments in Haven II. The Brotherhood hasn't been seen between issues #139 and #183, which is why it's so hard to find out exactly what happened to them. Having been essentially phased out of the comics, are you keen to see them return?

It's a matter of closure in some respects. Throwing the Brotherhood into limbo was a fair plot point if we were going to find out what happened later, but just to have them disappear forever feels like an unvarnished attempt at an excuse for why they're no longer part of the story. If it was up to me, I'd have a very specific reason they were sent to the Twilight Cage (Would they discover the remnants of the Dark Legion's facilities? Learn about their history? Come to a realization while waiting to be found?), and once they were finally rescued, something about the experience would affect them on a personal level or have an impact on one of the main plots.

I totally get what you're saying. 'Closure' is the key word here. The way the Brotherhood was axed from the comics is similar to what happened to the rest of the echidnas or the reboot as a whole. While I understand the legal background that necessitated it, it's not the reboot and downsizing itself that bothered me, it's the appalling lack of attempt to bid farewell to the original timeline. The way Ian Flynn handled the token 'memory restoration' (apparently mandated by the editor), only to drop it almost immediately was so dismissive and downright insulting to longtime readers of the comic. The Brotherhood or any other enduring characters from the comic deserve a proper send-off to bring a sense of closure for readers.

I realize the impact the Brotherhood has had on Knuckles and echidna society as a whole, so I've been writing more of that theme in the script today. The Brotherhood's influence has always been felt from afar in the comics, and as long as that remains then they're never truly gone.

The page is so interesting, first Haven is the third location than we see in the issue, it’s a good contrast with the first issue. 
When you made the change of the location from Albion to HQ the location had a half introduction at the end of the page 4 and that was so smart but i like than you don’t repeat it so soon.
The atmosphere than the light made (using the fire as only fount of light) create a dark color palette than made a good change with the material than we have seen until now, and create an atmosphere than make think “what’s going to happen?” 
By the way, the smoke of the fire looks so alive and real and the visual effect sounds (like BOOM, whop, krrr or klang!) ar very effective to give life an fluid to the page
I like than you send us the idea about “Where is Knuckles?” Since page 2 and the comedy moment (putting apart the fact than it’s SO FUNNY) create affinity with the character, and the chemistry between him and Julie-su it’s something than we haven’t seen in the original comic in so much time.
Again I admire your hability to show so clear tepee emotions of the characters in its face; I can feel Knuckles surprise in the 4th panel, his angry in the 5th and his frustration in the last one... 
Each time your do this better

Ta muchly! The establishing shot on this page is probably my favourite panel in this issue. :D I was careful to get the firelight just right to give Haven a warm and cosy feel despite the debris. I took references from Tomb Raider (2013), which had campfires in derelict buildings. And yes, I wanted to broaden the story with more locations and characters in this issue. The first issue was kept primarily in Albion with a small cast to ease readers into the story for the introduction. Now that that's been established, I can begin to explore different plotlines and feature more characters to enrich the story further. There's a lot of ground to cover in the comic's history and many loose ends to tie up. Needless to say, I spent months developing the script before drawing the first page and the story is not even half finished. Looks like I've got my work cut out for me. ^^;

Julie-Su was hastily removed from the comic due to legal shenanigans after Thrash showed up in Sonic #244. Sonic Retold starts from Sonic #243 and Thrash is not a part of the storyline, so Julie-Su is still hanging out with Knuckles in Haven. If you must know why I removed Thrash, read this.
