I can only wonder if Cream and Bunnie are somehow long lost relatives in the Prime Zone as well, and they don't find out until much later, like Hope and Snively did.

Heck, if we ever get to visit the Southern Baronies, I imagine someone will end up making the connection.

Nope. Genesis!Mobius is something else altogether. Prime!Bunnie and Prime!Cream are completely unrelated.

Oho! All this world building for Genesis!Mobius is making me think that the original "Genesis" arc is not the last we'll see of that world...

Of course, I may be reading way too much into this, which happens all too often. :P

I always said that Captain Mal was pretty much Han Solo before he joined the Rebel Alliance. :)

The extra insight into what the other characters experience during Genesis was interesting. It raises the question of what others such as Lien-Da, Geoffrey and Naugus went through. Clearly something hit Naugus hard during Genesis.


Your recap lacks the important details, sir.

What flavor of Chupa Chup did you get?

...and, for that matter, what the heck is a Chupa Chup?

They're lollipops. And they're aaaaawesoooome :P


Ohhhhhh... Chupa Chups! I recognize them now. I just don't think I've ever called them by name.

Those suckers look vaguely familiar. Can't say I've seen 'em recently. I got my FCBD Sonic. I haven't gotten a chance to read the backstories yet. I got 3 other FCBD comics: Spiderman, Mega Man, and Voltron.

I pulled a lemon-lime one out of the box first. Then I shrieked in horror and chose the cola one instead. :D

Never been a fan of cola-flavored candies. Cola, yes-- Coke, Pepsi, and even RC.

Then again, it has been a while... maybe my tastes have changed.

I did not pick up this issue on the actual FCBD. Then I found out it featured some brief glimpses into what some of the other characters experienced during and after Genesis. I was really disappointed when I picked up the issue yesterday to find all of the new content was simply text. :?

Actually I was sort of disappointed too. When I heard there was new content, I thought it meant new comic pages. The little essays are cute, but they weren't really enough to justify getting the issue twice. If it had just been a straight reprint I wouldn't care (I don't mind not being catered to), but there was a little bit of misleading going on here.
