Page for May 20, 2003:
Commentary for August 31, 2018:
And we're back to an old story once again. Of course, Sally wasn't in it originally, but I've covered why she is now already in the commentary for page #009. That being said, less than half of this page is from the original (either re-created in 2018 or from the 2003 original).
I wanted to create a connection between this and the previous story arc, so I replaced the original opening scene with Doctor Eggman having a jolly good rant at E-100 Alpha. In the original version, this page opened with a very random homage to the notorious "all your base are belong to us" opening cutscene from Zero Wing that turned out just to be Eon having a weird dream. Part of me is a little sad to have not kept it, but apart from being an entertaining diversion, it didn't really contribute anything to the rest of the page or the wider Eon's World story. So I nixed it and wrote what I personally feel may be some of my best Eggman ever. Getting inside the mind of a supervillain who is basically fated to always fail. That's got to mess with a guy. Evidently, Archie Sonic writer, Ian Flynn thought so too. Jeez, Ian!
As a result of the remaster, this marks the new first appearance of the SSTV news anchor, Charlene McFaire, who becomes the regular Mr. Exposition of Eon's World as the story progresses, although she is unnamed here. Readers of Sonic the Comic may remember Windy Wallis. (No, I don't plan to feature her as a weather-controlling minor villain... or do I...? Well, given that SSTV News is basically the Fox News of Eon's World... we'll see.)
Finally, there is a lot of foreshadowing here. Readers of Eon's World 2.0 will already know what Sally Acorn has to look forward to, of course. But I also included a reference to Geraldonia, a deeply problematic nation state on Earth that will become very important in a couple of years -- or perhaps I should say in 238 pages?
