  1. Hedgefox is known for posting links to pirated scans of the Archie comics. So, does this mean Ken is using pirated scans for Beginnings? Because that'd actually be kind of hilarious. EDIT: It looks like he's deleted the tweet. For future reference, in case the text doesn't stick around, he said "youre welcome for the digital scans btw ^^" in response to Ken's tweet the other day about Beginnings.
  2. If those are the values you want to promote, then maybe don't use the characters you have portraying those values to also glorify statutory rape.
  3. I'll always be grateful to The Republic THE REPUBLIC for giving us Pete, a character who somehow manages to go from believable teen not caring about class to the most "How do you do, fellow kids?" line of dialogue in less than 10 seconds. The preview episode is worth it for 6:30 to 6:40 alone. That, and the truly masterful computer screen effects in the scene at 9:20. I kind of hope they aren't actually changed at all in the final product; They're just so perfectly awful.
  4. This reminds me of the time where he legitimately claimed that the concept of alternate timelines did not exist in the Sonic franchise before he featured alternate timelines in his stories. Sonic CD predated any of his work on the comic.
  5. The Mystery of Xero may well be the single most silly and clichéd title he could have possibly chosen for any of these volumes.
  6. Wow, yeah, I completely forgot that too. So much for almost giving him credit for new work. (If Paul's link isn't working for anyone, copy/paste this instead of clicking: https://web.archive.org/web/20130715220914/http://www.kenpenders.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2549 Stadium's always been weird with letting links to Ken's forum work right for some reason.) Well, at least there's a few changes, like it moving forward a few pages, and... Actually, that's about it. Apart from one piece of scene direction grammar being fixed (something that won't even be seen in the finished product), the latter half of this is completely identical to the old version, unless I'm overlooking something. Honestly, the dialogue in the new first half of this scene actually feels more rough and stilted than the old dialogue, especially in the exchange with Cobar. And the "REALLY?! That's not what I call a plan." Also, why did she swear excitedly from being surprised by an explosion?
  7. Pretty sure he's just referring to The Storm here. This probably isn't even anything new.
  8. I almost half-expect him to want us to see this as a good thing rather than a dystopian mess.
  9. This. One thing a lot of people (including Ken himself) tend to forget is that the lawsuit was originally set off by Ken threatening legal action. Archie didn't sue him out of the blue; They preempted him after he called for them to cease and desist. http://web.archive.org/web/20160327222526/http://www.kenpenders.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=133 But regardless, it's pretty much undeniable that Archie and their legal team dropped the ball massively. You don't start a lawsuit unless you have all your ducks in a row. Archie started a lawsuit and then realized the ducks ran away years ago.
  10. It's almost kind of impressive how he sounds more and more bitter every time he brings up Ian. Also, Ken, this really isn't hard to piece together. You pretty much just said it yourself; A large number of people think Ian wrote your characters better than you did, feel you wrote them poorly, and are upset that the person who wrote them poorly snatched them away and began ranting about how awful he thinks the writer many people prefer is. Though I can't say I'm surprised you think it's "sheer lunacy" that people would prefer another writer over you, especially when you keep going on about how you think only the original creator should ever matter regardless of quality. Well, except when it comes to a later writer who you think did a better job, like how you always say movie adaptations of comics make the originals irrelevant. Or how you act like you wrote Sonic characters better than their original creators.
  11. Yeah, uh, this is getting kind of concerning, to say the least. He's sure he has a clue what he's talking about? Really sure? Alright, then, let's take a look at the old statement Ian made 10 years ago that apparently sparked all of this: https://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2830 And let's look again at the tweet Ken made to start this all off: It doesn't take a whole lot to realize that Ian gave a really clear qualifier that Ken's contract (or even lack thereof) could have been very, very different from his own. Heck, Ian even noted at the start that "[all] I'm going off of is my limited understanding of the ownership of things within the book and franchise." Somehow I get the feeling Ken didn't re-read that post before talking about it, and just went off nearly 10-year-old memories of it.
  12. One of the replies on Twitter made a point that I'm almost positive Ken hasn't even remotely considered: Even if the settlement somehow had the utterly bizarre stipulation that Ken could republish any work in the Archie Sonic collection past and future as long as he paid SEGA, regardless of trademarks and the like, there's a 0% chance that would include the issues featuring Capcom characters in the two Mega Man crossovers.
  13. It also says a lot that Ken takes issue with Ian posting a summary of informal story ideas online that involve characters he made (and even refers to it as creating "market confusion" in a later tweet), but sees absolutely nothing wrong with him using actual SEGA-owned characters in material promoting the sale of TLSC, or with his plans to republish collections of old stories that just outright feature SEGA characters in them.
  14. And now Ken is pushing claims about Ian that were completely made up. Because immediately believing and pushing forward lies about the current lead writer does wonders to bolster your claim that you hold no ill will toward the current staff. (For context, someone asked Ian last year if IDW would be using the movie to push for higher sales, and Ian replied saying there was no movie cross-promotion. Apparently someone decided this means Ian refused to do a tie-in story even though that's clearly not what he said.)
  15. Ah, the old "I'm not weird for saying something disturbing; You're weird for making a big deal about me saying it" excuse. Always a classic.
