    I think our boy Gene might give us a look at a image that didn't make the cut to see who the third cat character is? Spoilers: It is Honey and also major kuddos on the DK rap reference

    ...based on what? Are we even reading the same thread here? Sega's PR has repeatedly taken the piss out of '06 and the circumstances surrounding it. Sega themselves have already specified that the game releases in 2017, and prior to that already straight up said they're focusing on quality first and foremost. The trailer in the opening post is literally titled Project Sonic 2017 Debut Trailer. And even if for some stupid reason they suddenly took back everything they've already said and push forward the release date for Christmas money, I need to reiterate that Sonic Team has kept this project under wraps since 2013, which already gives this game a head start of over two years worth over what 06 was given. If you're basing this off anything other than childish superstition then I'd like to hear more, otherwise kindly don't make assumptions like this. To be blunt, it's obnoxious.

    Another Pokemon called Namakobushi was also in CoroCoro this month. It is a Sea Cucumber Pokemon that can regurgitate its organs and form them into a fist for attacking. Funnily enough, the Chinese leak did mention a Sea Cucumber Pokemon.

    Makes sense. On another note, if you aren't following Peridot on twitter, here's her in-depth analysis of recent events:

    It's not like they're presenting her as ACTUALLY EVIL ALL ALONG (ala fan theories *cough*), just that she wasn't perfect. Which you can say about nearly everyone in the cast, really.

    A general rule on the internet is that if something exists, no matter what that something is, at least two people will be a fan. Though I'd be willing to venture that they're more interested in his official Sonic works than him. I admit that I have little experience with comic books of any kind, but I can tell that stuff like the idea of somebody with the mentality of Sonic being evil or giving the characters families makes for plots that are, if nothing else, interesting. If this doesn't prove that the lawsuit and creation of the Lara Su Chronicles had little to nothing to do with sticking it to Sega and Archie for stealing copyrights, I don't know what will. Penders can talk all he likes about how triumphant the Lara Su Chronicles is for artists rights, how it shows once and for all how Sonic is meant to be, but at the end of the day, its transparent how much of an ego project and attempted cash cow it is. How disappointing-- the concept of continuing the old universe is actually being attempted by some fans with little issue from Sega and much acclaim from the fandom, showing clear interest and support for the old universe on the part of dedicated fans and openness to the old universe on Sega's part. If Penders put actual effort into the Lara Su Chronicles and managed to produce something good, there'd be plenty of people willing to put aside their bitterness over the lawsuit to buy his comic and support more endeavors from him, because the appeal of the old universe is really that strong for a lot of fans. Plus he could've gotten a mention by Sonic social media or something-- Sega's known to be very supportive towards unofficial creative endeavors provided that they're really good, and that mention would basically be free advertising. But instead we get character designs and art which can be nicely described as uninspired, molasses-slow progress on writing, art, etc., and disappointment from the writing that we have seen. What a shame.

    So a couple of years ago, SSMB user -Mark- found a couple of Sonic comics that most of us hadn't seen before. These comics turned out to have originated from the News of the World "Sunday" magazine in the early nineties, but unfortunately it was near impossible to track any others down as they were printed in the supplement and not the actual newspaper. A couple of us did eventually manage to get a few strips together, but the magazines were so hard to find and very expensive when they did pop up, so it was starting to look like we'd never get a complete series of them together, if it was indeed still out there. Around the same time I was in touch with Sonic the Comic artist Richard Elson who confirmed that he was also the artist on these strips as most of us had suspected. He also provided some additional information and it turned out that a few people who worked on the UK Sonic the Hedgehog yearbooks were also involved with these; all of the strips were written and edited by yearbook editor Barrie Tomlinson, and the last chunk were drawn by artist Sandy James. Many of the later Elson strips were coloured by John M Burns wh also worked on STC. Even more interestingly, he told me that he did in fact have an almost complete collection of these in his personal archives and that he would be happy to loan these to me under the condition that I scanned them in and shared them with the community as we thought it would be cool if people were able to see more of them considering how obscure they are. Richard was missing a couple of strips from the collection he gave me, but through the issues that myself and Hogfather had managed to collect, along with Mark's original scans and a few that were uploaded later by Tumblr user hypermikey, we've been able to get an almost complete collection together... so behold... The Sonic Sunday Strips Archive We believe that we're now only two issues away from a complete collection and the episodes that seems to be missing are from the 29th May 1994 and 13th November 1994 magazines. On the off chance that anyone here may have them or know someone who does, we would love to add them just to finish off the archive so everyone can have a look through them. The comics are quite interesting as it ran alongside STC and there are a few little things that seem to link both universes together, despite most people-- even those who were involved with the comic-- not knowing of its existence. For example, we have a strip from 10th April 1994 where Robotnik's new AoStH-inspired design debuts. This was the week after his AoStH design was introduced by Nigel Kitching in the April 1st issue of the comic printed that same year, which also happened to be drawn by Richard Elson. Another episode has Sonic being shrunk by one of Robotnik's inventions and during one part of the strip, he's trapped in a spider's web while miniaturised. I couldn't help but wonder if there was a little nod to this somewhere later in STC when Sonic encounters a giant spider and is trapped in its web during the Shanazar arc (all the way forward in issue #152 in 1999) and mentions that it's his worst nightmare, even though it's something that had never been brought up in the comic at all before. This was also in a strip drawn by Richard Elson. On the whole the comics are generally silly little things without much too detail put into them (as a lot of newspaper comics are), but as a Fleetway fan it's cool to see some small references that may have been nods to my favourite Sonic universe, and it's always nice when something obscure surfaces and is able to be enjoyed by everyone. Again, a MASSIVE thank you goes out to Richard for making this possible, and also to Mark and hypermikey for providing a lot of the pages we were missing. You guys all rock!

    I find it strange that many people only want to count a character becoming nicer or stronger as real character development. FYI becoming a villain or weaker also can be acceptable as character development in a story. But I am also bias for unusual content in stories.

    My moneys on Bewear hunting Marowak. Bewear can crush bones with a single embrace, and Marowak's head is a bony plate. Bewear is Normal/Fighting, which Ghosts are immune to. Bewear has the Fluffy ability, which Marowak's newfound Fire type can deal super effective damage on.

    ...hasn't that been said for years now, or is my memory playing tricks on me? It would probably help considerably if every game didn't feel the need to radically alter the mechanics.

    Pokemon Anime General Discussion

    That's pretty much common knowledge when it comes to anime. The problem is the folks who are doing the dub are the pokemon company international and they're just being cheap. The reason why they got rid of the 4kids voice cast and got new actors was because didn't want to pay more it's just so frustrating that they would go the cheap route considering Pokemon is one of the biggest franchises ever.

    The Lost Ones bombed, and for all that he tries to claim it was a 'cult hit' or whatever, the simple reality is that his 'own' work just doesn't have the kind of draw his Sonic related work does (I put the quotation marks up there due to the fact that Lost Ones is a *very* thinly veiled copy of X-men). Hell, he even tried to use Sonic to advertise the damned trainwreck- I've read The Lost Ones, and so I've seen the full breadth of Penders work when not having to deal with editors or the like. The result? Inept, dull, and boring. The only hope for The Lost Ones to ever be anything more than it was would be for Penders to take a page out of Liefeld's book and let someone with far more skill and talent re-invent it.

    One thing I'd want in Sonic Mania is a better balance between the Flame, Thunder and Aqua sields, since in Sonic 3&K Thunder was almost always the best choice. However, I know that's very hard to pull off, since rings are everywhere but fire and water cannot be put everywhere.

    I still for the life of me don't know why Mr Penders hasn't properly gone back to The Lost Ones and just stick with that. Hell, with someone keeping him check and ditching that terribly insensitive reason why Particle’s powers exist and giving her and others a more cyberpunk origin it could work. If Mr Penders put half as much effort in to this like he does goofing off on twitter he'd actually would have something decent on his hands. Makes me kind of sad since I'd like to see this get off the ground... Then again I unironically like Youngblood and Chicken Little so maybe I'm not the best at judging things.

    I love how Sonic 2-4 made such huge deals about the Death Egg, and Battle just randomly introduces a third out of nowhere, and no one thinks much of it.

    Its a collaborative effort, but balanced out by the fact that fans generally tend to have less access to money and investors than creators, not to mention that fanworks are typically free with little merch unlike official works (with the old universe continuation being no exception to this). Though this works in the fancomic's favor in some respects-- the only people who would find working on a project like this worthwhile are those who are truly passionate about Archie Sonic. Passion doesn't guarantee good quality work, of course, but its a good start. Meanwhile Penders's comic can be considered worthwhile without passion since it offers a potential monetary gain and potentially more fame. And it shows Though this does bring up a good point- Penders has been trying to be a one man band plus Adamis. I honestly don't think its working. He could use a crew to help him edit his writing, perhaps do the art for him, etc. Though I hear he's pretty tricky to work with so that might not end well. Its a sad truth that Penders would find some dumb reason to dismiss what's essentially his competition in regards to building off of what Archie built.

    The game is already announced for 2017. It's literally currently only known as "Project 2017".

    06 was made in less than a year. The last Sonic Team game was released three years ago, so it's pretty safe to say that this is a completely different case entirely. The only grounds for comparison between the two games so far is the tone, and frankly we still know far too little about that to draw a solid connection anyway. What we have so far isn't much better than judging a book by its cover, to be frank.

    More original stuff: I’m way too obsessed with seaside scenes so I should at least start to try and make them a bit more fun. I'm now on Instagram! I’ll mostly be using it for photography but will crosspost a selection of my art too. Follow me here: jez.mm Last thing today is safe for work but has some pervy double entendre humour, click to view:

    Sonic no. I think they were going for "pisses all over the competition." but they kinda faffed it and got this instead. I can't tell what Sonic's sitting on?
