  1. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    The only one I would think could be interesting is TMNT. Just have Robotnik merge the Technodrome with the Death Egg and make badniks of the Turtles. If I saw a MLP and Sonic crossover I think I might vomit until I die.
  2. For sure. The longer he sits on it the more his relevancy evaporates, and the less people will give a shit about Lara-Su. He's lazy, on top of everything else, and you can't be much of a businessman much less an artist if you're a bum.
  3. He could have. He could have changed the character names, made them human (or even more alien), and avoid excessively detailing events and un-owned characters from the Archie series, or at least change those details up. He didn't though, because Penders isn't an artist and he's not a creator, he's a businessman. Not a good one, but closer to that than an artist by a country mile. Besides giving Archie the finger, that lawsuit was about tying his work back into Sonic as legally as he could so he could shill to the people who care about that. In part, it's why we're even talking about him still, so it's working.
  4. Christ, False Face's mask in the 60's Batman show is disconcerting given the otherwise hamball backdrop. I keep expecting them to unmask him and reveal the bleeding Hallway Phantom face from Inland Empire.

  5. The lawsuit was, as far as I can tell, the first time he showed his true colors in public. The whole thing stank of him trying to stick it to his former employer, robbing them of his characters while finding a means to legally milk their connection to Sonic the Hedgehog. These last few tweets pretty much just amount to annual reaffirmation that he's a sell out, cozy with slinging back issues at cons like a sad sack, coasting off his notoriety from here until the heat death of the universe. They are some pretty gross takes and have stood out to me as especially upsetting, though. I can't imagine having that dour of a worldview, to be so incapable of seeing how others - even those working for major publishers - can have more passion for their work than simply salivating for that sweet carrot on the stick that is monetary compensation, that people are actually capable of putting out good stories and writing excellent characters because they have an artist's drive.
  6. I agree, but it's also reminded me of something I thought about the last time I got too inundated with his shenanigans, and that's the probability of even having a real discussion about him as his relevancy continues to evaporate. He's no longer wrapped up in legal proceedings against Archie or SEGA, IDW now has the license leaving little else for him to do than moan about his lack of involvement, and his comic has been in development hell for so long there's a very real possibility of it never seeing the light of day. The most we seem to get anymore outside of hot twitter takes is the occasional piece of promotional artwork, and the commentary on that typically amounts to "oh god, oh no, oh god." His focus on greed and penchant for frittering away his time on Twitter I think all but assures his days of producing anything of constructive conversation are done. This is by no means an attempt to justify color commentary about his tweets. It's just an observation on what it even means to treat Penders as a current real time topic in the community.
  7. Yeah guys the Sonic comic is a thing of the past, Ken is totes above it. I mean, heh, they didn't even PAY enough!
  8. I like how he worded that to make it seem like he's talking about anybody other than himself.
  9. Yeah I'm not saying they're absolutely equivocal in terms of impact so much as they share personality traits. I wouldn't even remotely make that argument.
  10. It's been about 14 months since I started working on this comic, and now 372 pages of pencils are done, around a quarter inked. I began the 9th chapter a couple weeks ago, 10 in total, and I'm feelin pretty good about my progress so far. Hopefully I can finish before the year is up.

  11. You know it's funny how anti-Trump Penders is considering how many qualities he shares. The inability to do what is ostensibly his job, mistakenly believing himself to be a great businessman, a success, more culturally important or beloved than he actually is, the narcissism and obsessive qualities in general, and giving hot takes on Twitter in the wee hours of the night. Penders could use his comic as an outlet for all this pent up energy, and even his hostility, but instead he bathes in it all and splashes us with the murky gross residue of his sickness. Edit: Not trying to get political here, btw, I just think the comparison is amusing.
  12. My main take away from the Forces thread is that I want Sonic to become a t-rex made out of sentient water who wields a sick katana.

       Nice to see that someone can draw light out of all the Chaos roaming about.

    I feel like retconning his age in the classic games would be far less egregious than other continuity changes they done, but really lore in Sonic is so nebulous that none of this really matters anyway. You can treat him as being a younger Sonic or a Sonic from another dimension and both kinda work just fine, it's only in the comics where they're able to start fresh and establish a more coherent continuity that it might actually make a difference. Personal preference would be that they go with age and not dimensional stuff.

    Ironic, considering Generations is about Sonic's birthday :V

    Huh, I didn't know that. Shame, I'm not personally much of a fan of the "alternate dimension Sonic" angle when having it just be a younger version makes better sense.
