Hershey and Barby by telofax Hershey and Barby by telofax
Hey all, it's time for a new strip.
But what's this? Hey, that isn't Sally and Nicole! What gives?!!

Heh! Just kidding. I thought it was time to do something with the more underutilized female cast members from the Archie comics.

I never really thought much about Hershey, but I always enjoyed her overall look and design. Barby on the other hand has always been a personal favourite of mine, and I'm sorry that we don't get to see her more often. And Fiona is a fox. Seriously.

Now I promised myself I wouldn't do anything controversial in my strips since that always seems to stir up some debate.

But I just know I'm going to be hearing about the whole Barby/Tails relationship. I just want to say that there's no need to get upset about this. This comic is just the way I see it.

Expect more Hershey and Barby in the next strip, along with our favourite gals, Sally and Nicole.

Written by me, with pretty, pretty
pictures from the incomparable

This is still fucking brilliant. Barby's comment about Geoffrey is gold.

So Fiona is even older than Tails and Barby?
Well, that just makes the double standard even worse!

Barby is supposedly the same age as Vector, who is 20.

Hershey the Cat (now Hershey St. John) is a character specifically from the Archie Sonic comics. When she first appeared she was manipulated by her now ex Drago Wolf (who she beat the crap out of) and married Geoffrey St. John (a skunk) as well as becoming a member of the Royal Secret Service. She later on became a MIA and it's been a major debate if she "died" or not. Recently due to issues between Archie and Ken Penders (who made Hershey and several other beloved characters)people are worried if whether or not she and others, such as Julie-Su, will return.

Hope this explains it without spoiling anything.

The strange thing about the Tails/Fiona relationship is that Tails fell in love early on with a robotic version of Fiona that was closer to his age, while the current version of Fiona is in her mid-teens. Now either Robotnik inexplicably made the robotic Fiona a few years younger, or Archie forgot to age Tails along with Fiona in order to stick with the games. Sadly, I don't think this leaves the poor fox with many options now, since I don't know any significant females in the comic that are close to his age.

Anyway, the artwork in this comic is cute and I like Psychotoonist's style. The characters are expressive, and Fiona bears a remarkable resemblance to her comic counterpart. Nicely done.

"We don't know that for sure!"-yeah, sorry Hershey, but as of 233 we do and your husbands a bigger jerk than Drago could ever be.

I totally agree that Geoffrey's a bigger jackass than Drago, but since Hershey's my favorite character because she's so awesome I'm hoping they bring her back somehow and tell everyone the truth about her disappearance instead of her so called husband's lies.

well now Geoffrey said that he didnt find a single trace of her and he didnt find a body so there is a small possibility that Hershey is still alive.

But, because of :iconroxas617: I'm not really reading or talking about the comics anymore or else I risk him coming back and trolling me again.

Roxas617 sounds like a real jerk, but you shouldnt feel pressured to not talk about something just because some jerk would probably troll you, have no worries and talk about what you feel like talking about ^^ that is my advice to you if you wanted any advice..........

He is more annoying than anything else-I've blocked him but, the admins don't really seem to really do anything or care about what he's saying to and about people who are depressed and suicidal, looking for comfort from their friends here on the site-it's frustrating.

I'm more worried about him attacking the people who are commenting on my Sonic stuff, since I made his sh*t list a while back.

Got into an argument about some of the more depressing recent issues of the Sonic comic and he just couldn't let it go even after I said something like; fine, you're right-whatever.

And since then I've observe insult people who disagree with them by calling them homophobes, nazis, pedophiles, feminazis, etc. instead of giving examples an counterpoints.

He's like a Hemorrhoid that can type-no matter how many people report him how many times-he always comes back irritating people and spamming their homepages and inboxes.

My advice: block him.

Through past experience we can determine that we don't know a THING until it's been more than a hundred issues since it happened.

Not even then, if the whole 'secretly an Ixis wizard the whole time' thing is any indication, since Geoffry appeared fairly early in the series according to the archives-so it's been around 200 issue since he was first introduced.

Personally, I don't like the direction that's been taken with the character-especially since I'd just started liking him before he was revealed to be working for Naugus.

He also seems like a hypocrite now, since he claims to care for Sally, and yet continue to try overthrowing her family's kingdom despite her sacrifice in an attempt to save it.

And when he muttered about 'saving her' under his breath, that seemed like he's dillusional and actually believes that Sally would still fall for him if he managed to save her, despite all of the damage he and his 'master' had done.

But, I blame the writer.

The same thing happened to us, too. Damn Naugus... and damn the Ixis wizards.

I think Kamal (or G30FF, one of the two) from the defunct Power Rings webcomic put it best. In his words, St. John was 'a wonderful bastard, a face for the corruption present in Mobian government'. Or something to that effect.

Funny comic you have here. :XD:

And yea, talk about double standards all right.

How is it Barby Koala gets blackballed for liking Tails, and yet people are ok with Tails dating Fiona? :hmm:

She and Barby are not that far apart in age.

Hm, I thought I commented on this before. Guess not. XD I love the interaction between these two. Double standard, indeed. Also, Geoffrey's my fave charrie. =D

Personally, I'm a TailsXFiona shipper, but I know it won't happen. He really does have more of a chance with Barby, and I think she's taken by a platypus named "Duck Bill"... I could be wrong.

Why do the writers pick on Tails? Any love interest, no matter continuity and not counting Future!Mina, seems to end in disaster. Robo-Fiona, Barby Koala, Fiona, COSMO, and so forth.

Because it shows that no matter how many times tails gets beat down (In any way, shape or form) he always gets back up and fights, I mean seriously it's like the kid never stays down.
