"Evan has done a great job with making the characters feel like themselves and letting that shine in a balanced, exciting story."
The IDW Sonic The Hedgehog comics have been so full of personality so far, and Issue 37 is no different.
"Evan Stanley has proven here that she’s a wonderful successor to Ian Flynn as head writer, and this first full arc from her is more than worth a read."
"This story has been a lot of fun from start to finish, but make no mistake, it was absolutely the Dr Starline show..."
"...exciting, threw in a few twists, and came with the excellent presentation you expect from the series."
"Balanced the action and story progression well, set up several conflicts for the final issue, and featured some excellent art"
"Overall, this was another strong issue... The shift between the various plot points was handled well, and the characters are very much on brand."
"...another strong issue and the portrayal of most of the cast is worthy of praise."
"Dr. Starline takes the lead in a fun spin-off to the main series."
"Some excellent showings from Amy Rose and Rouge the Bat, and a great start to Evan Stanley's run as head writer."
"A nice showcase of Ian’s strengths as a writer. He handles an often large cast by using small chunks of in-character moments and never strays from his consistent tonal quality."
"Ian really understands the characters and how they’re supposed to act, which helps keep everything on-brand while still exploring his own ideas and concepts."
The Metal Virus arc comes to an end..but at a price.
Another decent multi-artist effort from IDW's Sonic team.
