  1. Probably a private discussion too since that usually turns into a Ken Penders ruined everything! discussion. Not that I disagree, but the mods have stated their piece on it several times, lol.
  2. Image has also done franchise books, so it's a bit odd that they have contradicted themselves with such statements. But such is hindsight.
  3. Either way, it’s a waiting game. For the sake of discussion -- outside of IDW, what publisher would you trust with the creative license? I would probably say Image Comics and Dark Horse are the other big options out of the contemporary indies and I’d be personally pretty comfortable with either.
  4. A series being “finished” doesn’t necessarily mean we can no longer discuss the finer points of the entire series or individual facets of it. Yes, we won’t get further issues in this continuity of the license, but as long as interest to have a discussion remains it won’t be pointless at all.
  5. Given that that iteration of Sabrina is in a bizarre (almost Lovecraftian) perception of the 1960s, I'd wager probably not.
  6. So when can we get a TV adaption of Archie's best thing I've read in years: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?
  7. If Superman and Captain America can write fresh and interesting stories seventy plus years after their debut then Sonic can keep doing it for half that.
  8. Can SEGA and Archie not just go to town with legitimate plagiarism suits with this?
  9. Yeah, same. I’ve been reading this comic since pretty much the onset (though I was barely young enough to read, less alone comprehend plot), so this is a really depressing prospective fate for me as well. It’s like seeing a piece of your childhood wither and die in front of you for no rationally sound reason. It's gut-wrenching. Most of all, its a fate I do not want to happen because it doesn't need to.
  10. I'm referring to the literary genre, actually. In modern day contexts we often amalgamate it into what is known as “action-adventure”, so I suppose that might be more contemporarily known. I’m a writer so I tend to see things from said artistic point-of-view; narrative, characterization, theme, tone, mood, genre, subtext, etc. Sonic the Hedgehog, to me, is about high-flying adventure where the stakes are high and the consequences are higher. You could compare this to many comic books as many comic books rely on this genre as it is not only engaging to read but one of the most familiar within the entertainment medium. Indiana Jones is an adventure film based on the adventure pulp serials and novels of the early 20th Century as an immediate example.
  11. Yeah, Sonic Adventure (both of them) knew how to make use of their cast to tell a dynamic story that was as light and hopeful as it was dark and moody. It was a big factor in motivating a lot of young people into the fandom for a damn good reason.
  12. So what they wanted to do when they did Sonic vs Final Fantasy Sonic '06.
  13. Izumo's eyebrows are a fun time, though I imagine she'd disagree. Haha.
  14. Yeah— a better comparison to the Sonic publications would be other adventure titles, particularly in the majors and indies (DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, IDW). Where would the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics be if they only relied on characters from the original prints from Eastman and Laird? Such is my point.
  15. Street Fighter also has a much smaller sphere of setting. Sonic the Hedgehog at its heart is an adventure genre comic— it tells diverse stories in diverse locations. This isn’t a series that relies on a singular city or framework such as a tournament and so forth.
  16. So what Archie has done since pretty much the onset? They have had so many tie-ins and comic adaptions of the games that I cannot think of many they never got around to.
  17. So your big issue is that it ends up being a moment of celebration that has nothing to justify it in terms of development thus rendering it kind of a hollow point? Yay. Woo. Unity. That’s fair, I can respect that point of view.
  18. What kind of issues are prevalent in that panel, Shadowlax?
  19. IDW does seem the likely choice, doesn't it?
