Commentary for December 23, 2019:

Dialogue from the previous scene continuing in a caption at the start of the next scene is very much a motif of the old Archie Sonic comic, especially in any stories written by Ken Penders (so the Knuckles solo series, which he is entirely credited with writing, was rife with it). I think it’s a perfectly fine thing to do -- when the dialogue is relevant to the next scene, so the caption can act as a bridge between scenes, and I try to use it exclusively in those instances. Penders, though... well, that guy seemed to use it in practically every single scene transition, even when the dialogue being spoken had no relevance at all to the next scene. Maybe he just didn’t like writing, “Meanwhile, in Haven...” or something? I mean, fair enough, it is kind of corny. But I’d sooner do that than always have my dialogue overflowing into the next scene, even when it’s not relevant to it.

But anyway, talking of Sonic the Hedgehog, here’s Knuckles again! He was, of course, teased at the end of Chapter 5, so naturally he gets a bigger role here in Chapter 6. By this point in his life, it has been almost nine years since he first encountered the Echidna Empire, so he is very familiar with them. And Knuckles is the kind of guy to hold a grudge.

As with the previous chapters, I have now made an updated version of this page, which is larger, with clearer text, to make it consistent with Chapter 7 onwards. Hopefully, this will make the earlier chapters easier to read.
