Best and worst milestone issues
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:26:16 PM »
Now that the comic's sadly over I thought I'd make a topic about the milestone issues. Which milestones were the best? Which were considered the worst?

My picks for best and worst Archie Sonic milestones.
Best: Issue 125.
I really like this milestone. I mean sure the Xorda are kind of dumb, and have bland terrible designs, but at the same time I like that they are so powerful that everyone on the planet has to put aside their differences and work together.

Worst: Issue 150.
This story really sums up the comic's dark age.
Having Sonic be replaced by Evil Sonic, and having Evil Sonic hitting on all the main female characters is not what Sonic fans want to see.
Plus the back up story give us Titan Tails.

Best for me without question is 175.  Eggman comes within a hairs breadth of winning, and the status quo we've come to know is literally burned to the ground.  It shows how to a certain extent Eggman was toying with the Freedom Fighters.  Plus, I love the cover!

Worst... I have to admit Vampfox, I was thinking of saying 125.  For me, the Xorda just don't work.  They're just too generic and dull.  Plus, stupid.  But, to be honest there is nothing fundamentally wrong with 125.  And a lot of my dislike is due to the Space arc that follows. 

But in the end, I can't decide between 250 and 275.  Because, no matter how bad the others were, they had some large event or plot occurrence happen.  These two just land in the middle of the cross-overs and are just, well, normal issues.  Nothing special aside from the number in their corners.

Without a question of doubt, Sonic #200 for me was the best milestone. I just really loved everything about that particular issue with how the Sonic and Eggman fight went down, it's just awesome.

As for the worst, Sonic #150. Do I even need to explain why this issue is particularly bad? It's literally composed of all the things that you don't read a Sonic comic for. And Titan Tails. That was just... nah.

The best, I'd say 200. That felt like a proper climactic battle against Eggman, as opposed to what they did in 50.

Worst would probably be either 100 or 15o, since neither of those really shouted, "Big and important", they just felt run of the mill

Seems like we're all in agreement that 150 was the worst milestone issue. 100 was pretty weak too.

I like the early ones: 25 and 50 are both pretty great. 200 is also very good.
