Lol, A TRUE INNER STRUGGLE FOR OUR NIGHTMAREN TERROR.
*snort*

I wonder if that tactic would work in jails.

Crime rate would be horribly high if that were the case. Let's pray it never happens.

As for the comics, it's a coin toss. Some like it, some wish it were assimilated from existence. I for one go for the destruction of it.

I have to give Archie some kind of credit... the first three were okay. They strayed (a lot) from the original concept and, in my opinion, altered the personality of NiGHTS to make him into a straightforward hero type. But I do have to admit, NiGHTS freaking out after the Ideya accidentally got stuck on his chest was kind of amusing. However it was the last three that made me want to ram my head into a wall. Since I only read one issue... I can't complain about the second's story, but I can throw a fit about the horrendous artwork.

I have to give Archie some credit also....in the fact that they can take a whole bloody simple game storyline and RAPE the soul out of it. I would have voted 'sh!t' because it sounds better but 'poo' was the closest option.

I can't read them. I swear, i tried to read through the whole series without stopping but i can't do it because it SUCKS the living hell out of anything and everything that is NiGHTS.

"Hurting, it does!" indeed, Izuka-san.

Nicker, "assimilate" is to incorporate, dear. XD I thiiiiiiiiiink the word we're looking for is "annihilate with the burning power of a thousand suns".

...I... the art hurts me more than anything else. Two words: BUTT. CHEEKS. DDDDDD:!!! ::hides somewhere::

    Fave books: Redwall series by Brian Jaques, Agatha Christie mysteries, some precise mangas and Harry Potter.

    I have a DeviantART account under the name ChaotixJewels. It has both Sonic and NiGHTS FanArt and FanFics.
I happen to like the comic, if nothing for a good laugh. After all it's only an ADAPTION to the game, maybe SEGA wouldn't let Archie use the original/game story to make their comics after all the orginal game/T.V. show of Sonic haven't been used in the comics. If everyone wants a comic that follows the story a lot better why don't we hold a contest for a fan comic of the original game (I'd enter it if my drawing didn't suck). As for NiGHTS changing sides because of a girl's pleading in the comic, I think that it was just the final straw for NiGHTS after all he looked as if he was unsure when he was introduced in the comic. Just a thought.

Its kinda so-so. I mean the storyline itself would be ok IF......you havent already played the game, known the story, have other people tell you it was offtopic and read a parody of it before you even glance at one of the covers. (Which is the case with me. but i have 5 out of 6 of em, and therye soso.)

PiD redeemed the comics...but the actual comics...

Yeesh, here we go.

When they were being published, I was kind of miffed and annoyed that none of my local comic stores were selling the NiD comics. All I ever saw of them was the cover art previews in the Sonic series, and thought to my young self "Damn, they look awesome! Why must it beeee?" etc, etc.

Cue about 2-3 years ago (or whenever the PiD was made), and I'm reading Parody into Dreams. Best. Rewrite. Evar. I still have the whole thing saved just so I can read it every so often. Hell, my mother's read it, and she loves it.

When TRiPPY put up the first couple of issues, I tried reading them, but I really only got to the third page and wanted to shoot myself.

Really, whoever said it was badfic with pictures, you win points for truth (and ha, I'm too lazy to scroll back and see who XD).

The 3 comic miniseries was cool mostly because of the art. But when they got to issue 4.... well you know the eyesore it was. I didn't buy 4 or the other 2 after that.

i forced myself to read it...

ALL OF IT...

just to see what would happen...
i may have permanently damaged my brain. probably from all of the slams on the desk ive done to my head while reading it.
or perhaps it was the hemorrhage i received after... its a wonder that im still alive at this point... "hurting it does," is probably the best way to describe the experience of reading this atrocious comic...

ah well... who cares!? I READ IT!!! (evil laugh) it may have cost me alot of blood and a portion of my sanity, but i read it haha!
i have a much stronger will now! DO YOUR WORST FOOLS! (ok, i really should shut up now... >_<:lol:

p.s. a fair warning to all who are weak-willed....

STAY...
AWAY...
FROM THE COMICS...

Dang, this topic has been slow for a while. As soon as I make one post BAM four more. During the intro of number four, I thought Claris and Elliot had succumbed to the harsh realities if you know what I mean. >_>

They made a total of six issues during 1998. The first three were... decent, I guess, but the other three were painful X_x They're up on NiD.com, in the comics section, in case you want to read them.

I thought it was all right. Some parts make me cringe. I tend to think of the whole series as fanfiction -

I haven't read the actually comics, just because of all the bad stuff I hear about them. However, I DID read PiD, and I LOVED that lol. I'm actually going to go take a peek at the comics, just for curiosity's sake. I will have sporks handy incase I have to gouge out my eyeballs. ^_^

I actually thought they were kinda decent. Sure, it doesn't really match up that well to the story, but if think if they might have reworked some stuff and released more comics, it could improve the franchise.

I do too. I mean, IT'S NiGHTS! At least we got a comic :3.

However, I gotta admit, the last 3 issues are kinda hard for me to read >_>. And I'm someone who found Sonic X fun to watch for awhile...

When I first bought the comics sometime in 1999, I thought they were good and I can actually credit them for introducing me to NiGHTS, as I had no idea the game existed until then. Now, when I look back on them, I can actually form an honest opinion.

The first three issues were decent enough. They sparked my curiosity about the game and it's characters, as well as the basic story. Although the art wasn't the greatest, it was completely horrible. However, when Archie went ahead and decided to continue "their version" of the story in the next three issues, that was when the story and artwork all took a huge plunge into the abyss of nightmares. While the first three issues were worth half the money, the next three weren't even worth the money at all. Although, I did find Parody into Dreams quite funny.

If only we could get a decent comic company to work on a new series. ^_^ Maybe a new series that would encompass a lot more, because the archie comics seemed really crammed together.

They're truly awful, I know, but I gotta give them a little credit. Probably if I hadn't seen the ads for them in my sonic comics and thought they looked interesting, I wouldn't be a NiGHTS fan today XD
I thought they were rather good at the time, but I was like... 12, and had never played the Saturn game. If I tried to read them today I'd probably shoot myself before finishing them... they're really THAT bad. But for the kids o' the day *smokes corncob pipe* they were pretty fun, and a good introduction. When you're that young, you can't tell the good writing/art from the bad.
