I know, I know, posting the whole page, but look at this art

“Sonic’s dad really isn’t a Mobian anymore. My dad simply
isn’t."
That’s pretty chilling. Like… He straight up murdered his dad. O_O


Two pages later, he’s shaking and crying- but not because Jules did anything. He just said ‘if you killed me, Sonic would be very upset.’
That totally set Scourge off- to have his knees buckle, his eyes tear up, and he jumped out the window after saying ‘empty words- you’re just like my old man after all.’
Clearly, there was some serious issues with his dad before he (supposedly) killed him.

I have that issue, and it’s easily one of my favorite side stories thus far… The artwork really conveys the emotions well, and the short interaction Scourge had with Jules was so “Whoa…” That I kinda wanted to see an aftermath sometime later…

I think this was one of the only stories before Lockdown that we got anything on Scourge besides the fact that ‘he’s a dick that wants power’. I mean, think about it- every story before was him just against Sonic, which of course wasn’t going to be a whole lot of them philosophizing, they’re just going to beat on each other. Scourge liked screwing with his mind, but that was purely for screwing with him- we already know he’s a jerk, that doesn’t tell us much.
This wasn’t against Sonic, or any of the freedom fighters- this was him trying to hit Sonic by really hitting below the belt. He’d impersonated Sonic before, but that was for personal gain- like when he was trying to steal the Master Emerald. This was going after what he knew Sonic loved- after all, if his relationship with his dad wasn’t the best, wouldn’t it make sense Sonic really loved his dad?
Unless I’m missing something, this was also pretty much the only backstory we got for Scourge- a bit vague, but enough. As for Scourge and his dad, as I’m kind of curious about that now? Well, look at that first panel. His dad’s talking to all the people, big and important with cape and a smile, while Scourge (or still Anti-Sonic at that point, or just Sonic. Whatever, calling him Scourge for simplicity purposes) is just tugging on his cape, clearly being ignored.
That one image is about all we get, but a picture shows a thousand words, right?

One of my favorite covers.

I know it’s cropped really awkwardly but can we have a moment of appreciation for the absolutely adorable style they went with for Sonic’s quills in this

Finally the submit box is fixed, I swear I’m not new to this. *sweats nervously*

Patience - Sonic The Hedgehog #136

Writer - Romy Chacon

Penciler - Ron Lim

Inker - Nelson Ribeiro

Colorist - Jensen

Why were these people not more prominently featured in the earlier comics?  Look at this!  It’s gorgeous and while it’s based on Penders’ poor storytelling, I feel much more moved by this sequence than any of the other things happening to Knuckles at this time in the comics.  I feel his impatience and need to get back to the island (which, let me say, is dumb to begin with but since it’s what’s happening in the story, this fits in the context).  I wish the earlier comics were more like this, with lots of character’s monologues and in-characterness like Knuckles flying solo here.  I dunno, it’s shame it was just a 6 page insert that has been long forgotten by now.

I’m just gonna leave this here.
