    Considering its been dead for as long as it has, why would we need a SatAM writer at any point?

    I'm sure none of them are doing it because they honestly think the movie is a rotting pile of shit.

    I know no one here cares, because it goes against what the majority here believe, but I just read this facebook post by a black policeman in florida, and felt it deserved to be posted here.

    But don't worry, he's obviously wrong. Just a conditionally racist black officer.

    Black man having an opinion that's different from yours = racist black. Gotcha.

    It's world and lore building. The reason it's brought up it so expand on what's happened in the past.

    The thing is, you wouldn't be creating the story of the games. What you'd most likely be doing is taking the story Sonic Team gave you, and translate it for an english speaking audience. I believe that's what the current writers said is what they do.

    I get the feeling that if they had done a full reboot, it wouldn't be that different in terms of the timeline. Just like what we got, all the events that we know have happened (most of the games ranging from the classics to Colours/Generations) would have occurred already, and we'd still have Sonic and co. being flung into the shattered world crisis...just without any of the memory stuff. There'd definitely be other differences too, though--in fact, I wonder how Ian would have handled the hypothetical #1 issue since it would have to function as a full on introduction to the whole comic, but yeah.
    I wouldn't have minded that, but thinking about it, it's probably a good thing Ian went with the temporary memories idea. If only because it probably would have really alienated people right off the bat, even if that sort of ended up happening anyway once it was made clear the memories were only temporary.....jeez, this was a real mess, huh? At least things worked out pretty well, it's just kind of hard to look back on.
    On another note, I don't think they would have started out with Sonic 1, for a lot of reasons. For example, what if a new game comes out, and Ian and/or Archie and/or SEGA wants the comic to adapt it...but they're still back in Sonic 2 times or whatever. Oops? I mean, they could do the Another Time, Another Place thing and leave it at that, but...eh.

    Ignoring that Genesis was only conceived to celebrate Sonic's 20th (230 was originally going to come straight after 225) and thus has no bearing on the plot, it was a huuuuge missed opportunity at the time. An adaptation of Sonic 1 and 2, with the classic designs and game mechanics? Spaz and Yardley teaming up for the pencils? Sign me the FUCK up.
    ...except let's have Sally, Rotor, and Antoine tag along and drag Sonic down like a fucking ball and chain. And have Sally be this annoyingly perfect character who's only there for eye candy and completely forced yet totally nonexistent flirtatious chemistry between her and Sonic. And let's have the other two do nothing of worth except clog up the panels with way, way more dialogue than there needed to be. Also, while the artwork is good, the facial expressions feel very stiff. Sally has bedroom eyes in nearly every panel and it's kind of irksome.
    The Freedom Fighters just weighed the entire Genesis arc down, full stop. I love that bunch, but if you're going to throw us some classic Sonic action then the least you can do is not shoehorn elements that clearly don't belong. And none of the characters' interactions with each other could measure up to the hilarious, and adorable, banter in Mega Drive. Just compare the two and it is a world's difference. It feels like Flynn didn't really know how to write classic Sonic at the time especially due to how heavily it clashed with the old Archie continuity.
    I actually recently picked up the hardcover trade for Genesis. I wanted it due to the artwork, and because it had issue 230, which was great. But the story and dialogue just aren't good.
    From the sound of the solicit, Genesis of a Hero sounds to me like Sonic: Genesis Take 2. And I really hope Flynn does these games good, this time.

    I remember when reading through Sonic the Comic, that I thought the holiday specials were a pretty neat thing to do. If IDW is bringing the concept back up, I'd be all for Archie doing the same.

    In Archie's continuity however, Triple Trouble IS canon. This is still young, naive very much trickable Knuckles if you'll remember.
