    Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    Good review as always. I know you dig into alot about what doesn't work about Endgame, but I also think you can at least see about how it does kindof work. Personally, I think if issue #50 was the end of Archie Sonic, I think it would be a decent way to bow out. I think the thing to note with the Penders era is that it is really a very slow downward spiral in my view. You've got a 109 issues of Penders left to go, as well as all of Knuckles series. The Knuckles series goes downhill relatively quickly, but with Sonic, I think alot of stuff still works. To me, the nadir of Archie Sonic is Penders final period of #126-#159. But before you hit that point, there are still some good things to come. Perhaps that is just simply the likes of the other writers offsetting Penders, I'm not sure. But the next era as Sonic games are in a bit of a wildneress period before the release of Sonic Adventure definetly is interesting, and credit to Penders and co, the death of Robotnik doesn't make Sonic feel like a pointless comic now that there isn't a central antagonist.

    https://www.thewrap.com/new-planet-of-the-apes-film-from-director-wes-ball-in-the-works-at-fox-and-disney/ Shouldn't be too much of a surprise, considering how well the Apes series did this decade.

    Heh.. I actually like the sonic in the games as he doesn't look like some odd fuzzy animal trying to be Sonic the Hedgehog. Movie sonic looks bad -still- AND he's not as cool. He's inmature and just comes off as trying WAY too hard. Game Sonic or normal sonic or SONIC himself is just fine. I can't pinpoint the thing but there's a difference and movie sonic has a LONG way to go in looks and persona.

    Fanfic: Meeting Mina

    Author’s note: also posted on my fanfiction account and ao3, it takes palce in the IDW universe. Sonic the Hedgehog had once again been on his own wondering around the world of Mobius; it had been a few days since he had taken down Metal Sonic and his attempts to reclaim Mobius for Eggman. He had him rebuilt and put back online with the help of a reluctant Tails; he offered Metal Sonic a clean slate and a chance to start over without Eggman but he had been rebuked and went away. Oh well, someone don’t want to be redeemed. He had been going back to what he had been doing after Eggman and the Phantom Ruby had been beaten by him, the different version of him and the Resistance’s rookie: wondering Mobius and helping out when he could. However there was something or rather someone in particular he had wanted to check out. In a hidden village of Mobius called Knothole; one of the villages in the 1% of the planet the Eggman Empire hadn’t conquered before he was freed. There was a band that was playing hidden concerts for citizens to try and keep the morale of citizens and Resistance members in attendance. The band was called the Forget-Me-Knots and the lead singer was Mina Mongoose; apparently she had been a member of the Resistance and had super speed like him. She had not been a most active member of the Resistance but it intrigued him. Someone with super speed like his? The only ones who could compare would of course be Shadow and Metal Sonic. He had travelled to Knothole and was in time for the latest public outdoor concert of the Forget-Me-Knots. He waited in the crowd ignoring the mutterings of crowd members who recognised him as the band members were introduced. There was Mac the Rabbit on drums, Sharps the Chicken on bass guitar and Max the Monkey on guitar. Last and certainly not least was Mina Mongoose leading the songs on her microphone. Sonic was blown away but how energetic and passionate her singing and dancing was. He replicated the crowd among them as they began cheering for the band and their songs; Mina was waving to them in between songs with her free hand and was more than happy to run the edge of the stage while performing to slap hands with them. After the concert was over Sonic went to the backstage door and asked the security guard if he could have a moment to see Mina. The stoic looking guard went to face him and was blown away when he realised who it was he was speaking to; Sonic grinned while waving at the guard too used to this reaction from people. The guard then quickly gave Sonic a backstage pass and opened the door for him. Sonic quickly went and found the dressing room door for Mina; he then started knocking it and waited a bit impatiently by the door. He never liked or was good at waiting. “Come in!” shouted Mina’s voice and Sonic wasted no time going through the door. He saw Mina was seated at her table mirror and he saw Mina pause when she saw the reflection of who came through the door through her mirror. Mina then turned around and was frozen in shock at the sight of Sonic. “Glad to see you face to face Mina; I’m Sonic and I saw the most rocking concert you just threw.” He told her casually as she then found her voice. “Sonic the Hedgehog....... It is such an honour to meet you Sonic; I was disheartened when we believed you were dead but then you came back............” Mina told him excitedly before pausing. “Wait, you just saw my concert........ I was just singing with Sonic the Hedgehog watching in the crowds without me knowing........ If I knew Sonic the Hedgehog would be watching I would have worn my best outfit.” Mina screamed with her hands on her head but Sonic just chucked. “Really wanted to try and meet you; found out you could be fast as I am. You think you could please show me?” Sonic asked and Mina looked hesitant before giving a slight embarrassed nod. She then circled the room several times in great speed and Sonic had to admit he was impressed. “Wow, not bad at all Mina.” Sonic stated but then noticed she was looking down and then looked concerned. “Something wrong Mina?” Sonic asked and Mina sighed before facing him. “I don’t have the talent for using my speed like you do Sonic. When the Eggman Empire began invading and I joined the Resistance with my friends; I thought I could help turn the tide of the war like you would later do. I............ was not so good as an active member of the Resistance.......... I was not good at fighting and the most I could do was get civilians out; I struggled against robots you could have taken out with no problem. I was stupid that I could be any sort of successor to you Sonic.” Mina explained with a low tone of voice and Sonic was not sure to take it. “What I did best was singing so I gave up fighting in the Resistance; I thought I would try helping people another way by trying to keep morale up with my songs.” Mina stated before shaking her head and gave a weak chuckle. “Wished I could have helped much more.....” Mina stated but Sonic gave her as mile and put his hand on her shoulder. “There is no shame as I am sure you tried your best in the Resistance and you found a way to help people with your talents. There is nothing wrong with helping people in a different way and keeping morale up is important so I think you did a great job Mina.” Sonic told her and Mina gave an appreciative smile and thanked him for that. “Nice to meet ya Mina.” Sonic told her and went to leave through the open door but Mina hesitantly asked him if he would let her give him a present on the cheeks. Sonic’s cheeks reddened as he instantly realised what she meant. He gave a nod as Mina kissed him on the cheek but at the same time; several people came to the door and witnessed this. It was an interviewer for the local news network and Mina’s mother Isabella Mongoose who served in the village council. Sonic didn’t notice them but gave Mina her thanks before leaving. Mina looked and saw the interviewer scribbling down notes while Isabella was giving a smirk to her daughter which made her groan. Now she had to deal with teasing from her mother and word getting out that Mina Mongoose was caught kissing the hero of Mobius (even if it was only on the cheek). She honestly didn’t know what would be worse. She cursed her idol for putting her in this position.

    Morning SSMB. Haven't done one of these in a while but just picked up this year's Humble Bundle and that leaves me feeling pretty happy. Now it's just a matter of finding time to play, and it'll be interesting experiencing Lost World for the first time.

    Oh MKTour finally works on my phone, I decided to try out… first thing… why do they trick us into thinking you are playing online while in truth it's just bots? Sounds weird. Game is fun though, simple but fun.

    The Playstation brand is 25 years old now. Wow. Honestly, even with all of Sony’s major faults, I’ll still always have a major fondness for Playstation consoles. Lots of great memories with the PS2 and PS3.

    Finally finished this up earlier and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. If you’re not aware of the character, I won’t blame you. He’s from a weird mobile game called Do Not Disturb.

    Remember that character profile thing I attempted last year for my original characters? Yeah that didn't really go anywhere. So I'm trying again, and thankfully I've got more than one result to show for it. First inductees of the 2019 Profiles: Tab (yep, him again). The biggest change here is the new hairstyle he's rocking. Looks pretty spiky, be careful to touch. Kolumbia of The Commodites. She's actually the first member of the band to have her full design, in color. Marlowe. Unlike other OCs, he's gotten a number of design retools since his introduction, and it's no different here. Plenty of things retained from his past designs alongside some new or different tweaks to his design.

    Honestly, from everything I hear, it sounds like Corbyn is going to keep this from going in a good direction. I hear a persistent frustration is he's basically the obnoxious centrist who won't give a clear position on Brexit, and it makes him and Labour look really bad. Of course, a lot can change during a campaign (May sure got a surprise when she held that election with good polling numbers only to lose seats), but the likely scenario is Conservatives come out ahead and this moves forward. Now unless the Conservatives get a super clear majority yet their plans still fall apart due to infighting, (Lord knows stateside how hilariously bad the right wing Party's grand plans collapsed once they actually got back in power) I just hope that Scotland, Northern Ireland, etc. are all given a choice to break off and do their own thing. The Scottish people in particular voted against economic uncertainty, yet England gave them it anyway. So I say let them have another chance to make their own destiny.

    Art #96 -- Eyenchor A drawing that I have done on page 13 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad. BIC blue médium biro pen on cartridge paper. Art #97 -- Lightcickles A drawing that I have done on an individual A4 sheet. Lights inside icicles that are shaped like sickle blades. Berol Colourfine and Berol Colourbroad Fibre tipped pens on Ryman Bright white card. Art #98 -- Crooked Smile A drawing that I have done on an individual A4 sheet. The eye and mouth in this piece are inspired by some grass and ground areas on a page of a Sonic The Hedgehog calender, which I discovered courtesy of Black Squirrel on Sonic Retro here: forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?showtopic=25575&st=525&p=936448&#entry936448. BIC blue médium biro pen on Ryman Bright white card. Art #99 -- Dilampidated A drawing that I have done on page 14 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad. HB Led Pencil (From a Grafix 45 Artist Assorted pencils set.) on cartridge paper. Art #100 -- Fancy Fox Face A drawing that I have done on page 15 in my Daler-Rowney A4 Optima Spiral Pad. This piece is inspired by the Fennekin character from the Pokémon series, and the Miles "Tails" Prower character. Additionally, this piece is quite heavily inspired by one of my previous pieces, "Curly Bloboy", and is partially inspired by another one of my previous pieces, "Rustic Tribal Cyclops Insignia". Furthermore, this piece is inspired by the styles of one-tone/one-colour tattoos. This piece also contains some elements inspired by leaves. Berol Colourbrush Fibre tipped pen on cartridge paper.
