      It's okay, we never did.

      We deleted your post because it was stupid but drawing attention to it would have been pointless, but here we are so I'm gonna tell you right now to stop being an obnoxious asshole and not continue posting in that thread if the IDW comic bothers you that much.

  2. They don't need a "period" of worldbuilding, just do fun stories and the world builds itself. Also how fucking long has this shit arc gone on? Feels like a year and a half. Awful idea, I'm amazed that anyone thinks Ian is good.
  3. Check out Daft Punk's new single "Get Lucky" if you get the chance. Sound of the summer.

      sonic headcanon: Eggman is also your dad, which makes for one interesting Jerry Springer episode

  5. Storming the embassy was entirely justified considering how hard America has fucked Iraq for decades. Fuck the people like him trying to dismiss this as just being some Iran-orchestrated operation. None of this shit warrants assassinating one of the highest-ranking figures in another country.
  6. CSS was saying that "people" wanted the comic to be it's own thing, as if that in and of itself justifies all of the issues I and others have with the comic.
  7. I did. This just sucks. I explained why. Being "original" doesn't automatically mean it's good. Sonic fans really just have no standards for anything, huh.
  8. Minecraft Steve ain't going away!

      Would the more fashionable Fortnite Steve be able to overpower him?

      No. He is too powerful.

      there will always be more smash bros, and thus, more minecraft steve

      that's right

      especially once they add him as the final dlc fighter

      NO.

  9. I just think it was a missed opportunity to see Tails get trolled.
  10. Honestly my ideal Sonic comic would just be a continuation of the French one

  11. Eh. It gets old when it happens like every other issue. Ian's done this a lot. Another example that sticks out to me, because it was just as forced and out of place, was the GIANT ENEMY CRAB reference in Mega Drive. It's cheap, and that's what bothers me. It's not always bad, mind you. A fun little nod here and there is fine. But it should be natural and used sparingly. The frequency with which Ian uses references like these suggests to me that it's more of a crutch than anything. Also, going back to my gripes with the length of this arc, I genuinely believe Ian's at his best when he's being constrained to a few issues. Otherwise he tends to drag things out. Something like Enerjak Reborn (which was what, 4 or 5 issues?) accomplished more and was far more memorable than this. Once the "house-cleaning" part of Ian's early Archie run was done, though, and he started moving on to bigger, more "epic" sagas (starting with Iron Dominion) is where he started to go somewhat downhill with the main comic. Sonic Universe, on the other hand, was pretty consistently great, which I think can be attributed to the fact that he was forced to stick to four issues for each arc.
  12. Katana Zero is very good and you should all play it!

      Played it when it came out. Thought the gameplay was excellent when I got the hang of it but 

      Spoiler

      The lack of a real ending fucking stung. 

       

  13. I don't care about Star Wars anymore, but this is honest to God one of the funniest things i've seen
  14. He's not going to get removed. Dems will nominate some neolib moderate like Biden or a weak Obama-esque psuedo-progressive like Warren. Literally anything to prevent significant change. Trump will use the entire impeachment spectacle to rile up his base in 2020 and ensure his re-election.
  15. >another fucking forced lyrics reference Hahahaha this comic sucks so bad. This is worse than Shattered World at this point. It just keeps going on and on and on because Ian can't fucking pace a story. "but idw made him do it cuz trades" Who the fuck cares. He's been at this shit for 13 years. Write a bunch of strong short stories. If you're forced to do a saga for a year or more, write a bunch of connected four-parters or something. This shit has no flow or creativity to it. It's just things happening all over the place. Total fucking garbage.
  16. There are two emotional states. Emotion (crying) and No Emotion (everything else).
  17. I really think we were denied the next Howard the Duck.

    1. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Don't say it's over so soon.  The idea of a Taika Waittiti led reboot isn't such an unrealistic prospect.  

      That said, such a film would probably be too much for us mortals.

      I'd rather have a TV-series format: a lot of Howard the Duck stories are essentially murder mysteries, he even has a detective agency and all, so one case per episode with occasional two-parters would be ideal. Hell, have him co-star along She-Hulk, they shared building once.

  18. He did. Jet is actually 300 years old.
  19. I can't take Eggman seriously unless he's actively carrying out a genocide.

  20. Should've stuck with the original design. Now the movie's just going to be regular bad instead of comically bad.
  21. Sonic Mania Adventures should be the only Sonic media going forward

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Mania Adventures is nice and all, but admittedly I kinda already miss Sonic being able to... well, talk.

      Yeah, but at the same time we have a very nice VA staff now so I'd like to get them involved. Not to mention more tie-in with the modern universe (if that's what we're fucking calling anything past 3&K now Sega).

  22. Yeah the arc is already bloated as it is. The Zeti got introduced out of nowhere and their last appearance was basically just one page of them reiterating what they said in the previous issue.

  24. Two worlds isn't necessary but also it doesn't matter. Stuff like not being able to show GUN's response to zombies or whatever doesn't prevent you from telling fun stories with the material provided. Have Sonic go on varied adventures to weird new locales and meet weird people. Just write stories that work within those mandates instead of, like Shadowlax said, fighting them and consequently being forced to change stuff. This fandom seems to think that storytelling consists solely of referencing continuity. Flynn was able to get away with that in the old Archie continuity since he was building on 15+ years of established mythology, but now that he has to start from scratch, the weaknesses in his lore/reference-dependent writing style are starting to show. He is capable of good self-contained, episodic stories, but for some reason we keep getting stuck with sagas that spin their wheels for 10 issues - all peppered with shock value drama and forced emotional moments, and of course those epic meme references that people gobble up - that just reuse the same formula until the rushed conclusion, which always seems to boil down to a giant, unsatisfying fight sequence. Just have Sonic go on adventures. One world, two worlds, ten worlds, it doesn't matter as long as you have fun stories. But IDW doesn't, so we're stuck with this mediocrity.
