for May 4, 2022:
Wars Day and welcome to Chapter
37, ĎWhisperís of a Distant Starí. I swear, the timing there was
I could have got this page done in a couple of hours, if I hadnít decided
to go prepare whole new assets to represent the Great Forest, so
instead it took all day. I had originally planned for the first
panel to be a grand establishing shot of Knothole, but I really
couldnít quite figure how to do that in sprites without it taking a
really long time, and then I thought to myself, ďWell, Knotholeís
supposed to be a hidden village; does it really make sense for it to
be possible to see the whole village from a distance?Ē I figure itís
more a thing you can see best from within. And then I proceeded to
just have the Freedom Fighters chatting in a forest glade. The
script calls it the bonfire glade, but itís daytime, so no bonfire.
If we return here at night some time (and we probably will), there
may be a bonfire.
Anyway, whatís this? Rotorís leaving? And after I made those lovely
new sprites of him, too?
Now, this isnít because I dislike Rotor; I actually like him a lot.
But Ian Flynn has actually talked about this on his podcast from his
own experience of writing the official Archie Sonic comic
back in the day; Rotor is kind of redundant. He was originally
described for SatAM as Sonicís best friend and the inventor of the
Freedom Fighters. Sound familiar? It should, because thatís just
describing Tails. In order to give Rotor his own purpose, Flynn
ended up reinventing him several times over the years and there was
one occasion (before Flynnís tenure on the book, mind you) where he
was even absent for quite some time.
In any case, this is not the last you will see of Rotor. I have
plans for him and he will be back. Heck, in future seasons, heís
going to play quite an important role, too. So this is only goodbye
Anyway, May the
Fourth be with you!
