I do have one more question after thinking it over.
What content would say was your biggest inspiration when writing for Sea3on?
I know technically you're following the same Satam format, but I mean like other fictional series in general. Do any of them have a big influence on the way you write about Sonic?
A really, really big one is Joss Whedon's "Astonishing X-Men" run. That "situation feeds into character" thing I talked about before, to me, is in just about every page of that book, and it provides me a very good template for what I want "Sea3on" to add to the SatAM we know and love.
Manga of a particular type also feeds into a lot of my thought processes on Sea3on. "Naruto", "Sailor Moon", "Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles"...those stories where emotions lie staunchly at the core of what makes the Story tick, where those feelings reach their pique in spectacular fashion. I hope to make such powerful moments part of the "Sea3on" experience, if in Spirit moreso than specifically Form.
Last but certainly not least, the Archie "Sonic the Hedgehog" comic is, if not an influence per se, than at least an inspiration. I know a lot of fans aren't terribly fond of it, and I myself have more than my fair share of grievances, but at the end of the day there is a spark to it that has always been there since I read it as a child that provides a lot of the creative energy for "Sea3on". Bollers, Flynn...even Penders, all have managed to make that happen to one degree or another at least once.
Gojira, why can't Sonic be Metal Gear Solid?
Note: I'm drunk
And "Sonic" can't be "Metal Gear" because there aren't enough cutscenes.
Also because Sonic and Snake's brands of humor are almost diametrically opposed and thus color their respective stories too differently for them to be one and the same, despite whatever overlap between them there may be.
