NER: Emerald Hill Zone. by taeshilh NER: Emerald Hill Zone. by taeshilh
Welcome to Sonic 2!

And say hello to Tails!!

Funfact: I was really annoyed with how I drew Tails with the first two comics and I couldn't really figure out why until a guy Souppy was talking to was all "Tails looks like he's Sonic Adventure Tails because of the length of his spikes"

And that was an incredible awakening for me, because I recall I've always drawn Tails this way with the belief that he was classic Tails, not realising that the original Tails has less exaggerated spikes. So this has actually fixed why I've always been annoyed with Tails all these years. He always felt "off" to me and I never have tried to draw him in SA-style, but it musta seeped through.

That's why he looks different on comic 3, it was around there that I discovered that mistake.

but yeah how about that title call out

That Special Stage one is so true...

Eggman, seriously... A slow car with one little spike on the front and an open cockpit? Best invention ever right?

On future comics, you should put everything Sonic says in a thought bubble I think. Maybe just because according to Sega he doesn't talk.

Tails has to be the best reference to a stalking fan to Sonic.

Great work on the characters. Especially on the STAY HERE panel XD

Just not all people have the patience to explain stuff to strangers, hehe. I've never played Sonic 2, but I kinda can tell what happens and I've read some of the comments to be sure.

I can try to explain.. if you still wanna know something.

Yes, I totally still care about this two months after I commented about it. But seriously, that's fine. It really wasn't that important in the first place. It was just a simple question that a certain artist took way out of proportion.

I don't think there's anything wrong with a reader requiring prior knowledge to an already-existing franchise to take a joke. Not all comics have to fit everyone. I can't explain the jokes to you if you haven't played the game that the comic is based on. Sorry.

So you can't just take five minutes to describe something which I'm sure is a very simple joke, but instead take that same amount of time to chase away a potential fan?

The fact of the matter is, you're not a Sonic fan. And this comic makes a lot of references to the Sonic video game, so I expect this problem would rise up again with future comics, because the comic is meant to be intended to be fully enjoyed by people who are aware of the old video games, so logically you wouldn't get it.

Besides, you were vague. Do you want me to explain all four comics or what? Did you not understand them all? If you look at the comments section, two people were specific with their query, and have gotten answers.

[link] Here's one of them for example.

I think I see where the problem is. I initially saw this as one collective comic, whereas now when I look at it, I see four individual comics placed onto one page of paper.

Even then, that still doesn't explain why you'd say something like "then the comic isn't for you" when you could have asked, "which one of the comics' jokes are you not getting" or even "which joke?". Is it because I'm not a 'regular' or a donator? Maybe I need to suck up more? I don't see why I received such a reply merely because I did not specify which comic I had troubles with.

I kind of thought this comic could be a way of me getting into Sonic a little more. I mean, if the comic could take parts of the game and turn them into humour then the game should be pretty decent, right? Now, I'm not too sure if I even want to try to continue reading. But that's not going to make any of us lose sleep, is it? I still love BCB, so I'm happy as long as you keep that up the same as always.

Target audience, you're outside of it.

It's like an in-joke. Only meant for those who have previous knowledge. It would be unpractical to explain the joke to every single person that reads the comic.

The reason why I said "then the comic isn't for you" is because.. the comic really isn't for you. Because you're not a Sonic fan. And the comic is meant to appeal to Sonic fans. You can look at the comic and enjoy the art and expressions if you want, but you cannot get the full experience because the jokes are specifically meant to target nostalgic aspects of the Sonic games. I don't know how I can make that more clear. I've literally repeated this like four times.

Fact of the matter is, I might make another purely Sonic-fans-will-get-this joke, you won't get it, and we'll be back on square one. I don't see the point if the subject matter is not something you are a fan of. If you want to learn more about the subject material, you should do your own research. I don't think it's very fair to have a huge expectation for me to have to explain it.
