"It will, once we get it back to him," said Ziona taking Lance's katana. For a moment a tear rolled down her cheek as see recalled how Lance was her own flesh and blood, now in the hands of that monster. She jumped as Sarah suddenly swooped on front of her. "Oh! Right! I'll get those too."
"I knew ywou cawed abwout thwem!" said Stacey to Sarah, grinning happily, then he turned and hugged Ally. "Dwun wowwy. I'wll kweep ywou swafe!"
Miles moved over a bit so Mark could see. "There. That's the view of Sandopolis Zone right now," he said, pointing to the screen.
"So much for an airstrike to knock out his army," sighed Ziona.
"I can remember," said Skye, nodding to Sarah. "And that's a point Seviper. If their parents can't keep them in check, what chance does Eggman have?" He looked over to Carol. "Do you need anything to prepare?"
"Pyramid with a face? Pyramids don't have.... oh, wait... from what I've heard of Eggman... yeah, that does make sense," said Miles. "Haven's got lots of cameras around the island. Lets see if any of those have seen it."
Skye gave a somewhat enigmatic smile. "I'm not that much older than the kids, but.... no, I don't want to see them in danger at all. But... I'm not sure how to stop them. If we try, they'd sneak out on they're own. At least this way we know where they are." He sighed. "I know, it's far from ideal."
"He did... it's just that... well... It might not seem like it, but this zone would be much worse off without him," said Ziona sighing.
The trouble with saying 'the old comics took a while to get going' is, well, they didn't! They started off as funny comics for kids. And in that regard, they were good, funny kids comics for the target market. They didn't 'get good'. They shifted focus from comedy to story. And secondly, even if you don;t buy that, the origonal Sonic comics were treading new ground. IDW has almost the same team that was working on Archie. They shouldn't need time to 'get good'. They should know what they're doing.
