Another old comic. This one never really got off the ground. It took place in the SatAM universe, but focused on a group of freedom fighters out in the Great Mobian desert as they struggled against one of Robotnik's generals.

Unfortunately, the plot I had planned was a liiiiittle too big for the scope of a simple sprite comic. Pity.

ANYWAY, I liked the way the story was told in this comic. It was a bit experimental, and looking at it now, I wish I had done a few things different... (... comic sans. OH! Also, old, outdated sprites.)

This comic features cameos from characters at the Sonic Blast forum, as well as some characters from the Sprite Wars.

The revelation about comic sans also makes me cringe when I browse my old comics nowadays. I love the facial expressions though.

@Doctor Dan:

Yeah, I've been studying how to make decent facial expressions without having to resort to doing that thing where people draw 1:1 pixel expressions onto a double, triple, or even quadruple-sized sprite. It works for some people, but I honestly think that some spriters underestimate the kind of facial expressions they can make at native sprite size.

@SoldierSpriter342: It'd be pretty neat if we actually redrew some of the 2x or 4x sprites, even if it represents a fairly large undertaking. It's irritating when I try to do some close-up shots and can't zoom in too far without the frames turning out to be too blocky.

I find your comics very fascinating, but I'm a bit disappointed that I've only seen one-shots. Do you have a comic that you are "serious" on? I would be delighted If I could read it!
