  1. "Avion" means "plane" in French. Also, it's a last-minute rename as it was still "The Floating Island" in the app menu I translated a couple weeks ago. Besides, I got new material to translate. 14 pages of "Shattered tomorrows". 3 finished pages (with "top quality" Photoshop work, you'll see) and the rest is in script format.
  2. Last week, he asked me to review the translation for the app's menu, a translation I've worked on in 2016. Nothing much changed. But from what I can tell, based on the menu text alone, the app isn't as groundbreaking as he claims. Swipe left for the previous page, swipe right for the next. Animated panels or not. Voice-overs. Zooms...
  3. Yes, it's a French comic released in 1994 by "La Sirène". It's a one-off that ends on a cliffhanger (I suppose it was just telling the players to play S3K). There's also a Sonic&Knuckles guide with a few comic pages with Sonic and Knuckles, not really tied to "Dans les griffes de Robotnik" but by the same artist.
  4. Taking pages out of context to claim a comic is weird. Typical. In the end, Tails didn't shoot and the unicorn reveal it wasn't even real, more like a test for Tails. BTW STC for the win. It had some weird stuff but stayed closer to Sonic than whatever Archie did at the time. STC didn't have romance, forced love triangles, echidna politics, millions of echidnas out of nowhere, Ken Penders, Ron Lim... To me : STC>IDW>Archie. Archie got really interesting when Ian took over.
  5. I posted a more accurate summary on Retro and forgot to post it here : - He claims that since neither SEGA nor EA/Bioware fought for the rights of Shade, he can use her. - One of his arguments is that SEGA never have gone against Archie for losing the rights to the comic material/assets, so obviously they wouldn't go after him about Shade. He uses the case of DeCarlo as the basis of this argument. - He claims he has no plans to use her other than a couple of sentences in Julie-Su's bio and a 2 or 3 panel sequence in a story. - His reasons : "protecting The Lara-Su Chronicles" - "Because it took so long to fight Archie, it created complications in my case against SEGA & EA, resulting in essentially a dismissal. But because the dismissal was without prejudice, that meant the lawsuit against SEGA & EA could be refiled if SONIC CHRONICLES or any elements from it became an arguable issue." - "From my perspective, my lawyers have always cautioned that if THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES were to become a success, there was a chance SEGA might want a piece of the action. What precludes that from happening is the passage of time as a result of my taking so long to get it done. For SEGA to file anything against me raises the question and my defense via the fact they never sued Archie for the loss of a valuable asset such as the ARCHIE Sonic series. By not taking action against Archie, or against me over the years as a result of my selling Lara-Su merchandise, SEGA has placed themselves in the same position as Dan DeCarlo with Archie. When they had the chance to fight back, they choose not. Thus Dan lost his case against Archie because he never fought Archie over the Josie opyrights." - "My actions regarding Shade and also the Archie SONIC & KNUCKLES stories are more in line to protect not only my interests, but that of the other creators and to keep the work from falling into public domain."
  6. Okay, I had a long private conversation with him. He doesn't own Shade. At all. He's just using the fact that neither Sega nor EA/Bioware are claiming the character. "Sega has essentially surrendered those rights by not contesting my claims"... He claims he has no plans to use her other than a couple of sentences in Julie-Su's bio and a couple panel sequence in a story. Why ? "In the interest of protecting THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES". He's also stalling, taking a long time to finish the comic so he has less chances to have to give Sega a "piece" of the "success" of TLSC.
  7. Slap "Before 2020" above Archie!Lara-Su and "after 2020" under the other one. She looks so depressed.
  8. Well then, please go on and suggest better ideas ? Complaining about complaining doesn't help either
  9. I agree with the person you quoted, I don't think it's a good idea either. Spamming is rarely effective. Plus, given the responses in the Sonic livestreams, they know there is a demand. Also saying that X idea sounds wrong doesn't mean we magically have a better idea.
  10. No. Not everyone can write for an official book, that's expected to be well-written. What you're saying is disrespectful to actual writers. You can't take random notes, put them together in InDesign and call it a day, to release such a book.
  11. Maybe because Ian has proved himself over 13+ years of writing for the comic, Sonic Boom, proved how versatile he can be (what with writing for several comic series at the same time) and is certainly more than able to take that task ? Writing a book like this is not something anyone could do. I trust him far more on Sonic knowledge than Pontac and Graff; for example.
  12. Thanks but what are the details ?
  13. First time I hear that. Source please ?
  14. When I translated this story three years ago *, he provided me with just (bad) scans of the pages. * He recently asked me to translate the story. Which I did. In 2017. He forgot and was ready to pay a second time for that work.
  15. There were only six issues of "Sonic Mag", the French STC. I still own #1 and 6, and used to have 3. 4 and 5 yeaaaars ago.
  16. Why are every female character half blinking ? It's an old cliché for female characters to look "sexy/feminine"... (plus, wooden expressions...)
  17. StC Sonic isn't the "biggest jerk ever", that's a stupid exageration made up by people who only read two pages of STC and called it a day.
  18. So Ken wants to re-releases a collection of 300+ comics while he hasn't released the first issue of his own comic yet ? I'll believe it when I see it.
  19. Well, I'm also dealing with information from the last time I translated something for him... two years ago (!) But he keeps telling the main changing points are in Sonic #50, 125 and 144. I also wonder... who is really interested in reading the continuation of a story from 10+ years ago, that got modified/erased more than once and even ceased publication, with a different art style and focus, featuring ersatz of licenced characters ? Why not something new, not attached to this past publication ? Plus, at his rhythm, he'll never finish the whole 7 or so books.
  20. Basically, yes. And to justify that TLSC is still "canon", as it's still happening in the Archie canon, just in another dimension. It's also his way of saying that everything that happened post 159 still happened (as he said in one tweet a couple years ago) but not in "his" dimension.
  21. "J'ai failli attendre" is Sonic's catch phrase in the French dub of AoStH, it's "I'm waitiiiiing". Nice touch Also, I saw the movie in French. First thing to say, Sonic's voice actor is terrible. Instead of using Sonic's usual voice actor, they choose to do some "star talent" and get... some guy I don't know, who loves to claim that it was " a dream job since childhood" but doesn't even know who Tails and Knuckles are... Other than that, I enjoyed the movie and I might watch it again.
