  1. Looking really interesting! I wonder what that enemy even is, also last issue was so intense but it made me like the Chaotix more than ever!

  2. I randomly bought issue #11 for kindle because I thought seeing the Metal Overlord stuff would be neat, I wasn’t disappointed though it felt kinda empty. Was fairly confused by the OCs though, there was an ad for their spinoff, why bother making a spinoff out of unknown characters instead of giving other popular characters the spotlight, that’s what I miss from the SU days. I’ll have to pick it up from the start.

    It’s like finally letting go of the freedom fighters crew only to… make replacements?

    1. Tangle and Whisper have a spin-off because they’ve both been huge hits with the readers, who have expressed a very strong interest in seeing more of those characters to an extent that simply cannot be catered for with just the main comic.

  3. The cover for issue 20 is not really exciting, reminds me a little of issue 17 tbh.
