  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. 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.
  7. Can SEGA and Archie not just go to town with legitimate plagiarism suits with this?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. So what they wanted to do when they did Sonic vs Final Fantasy Sonic '06.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. What kind of issues are prevalent in that panel, Shadowlax?
  15. IDW does seem the likely choice, doesn't it?
  16. With that said, I don’t think it’s entirely fair to presume much if you’ve only seen a select few episodes— how can you know what is important if you only watch a small handful in a story-driven narrative? I also disagree with you that it is the “norm” here, many shows that were not handled by 4KID’s handled dark imagery, concepts like death, and so forth without issue. 4KID’s self-righteousness was not the norm nor were its obtuse cuts and poor localizations. I would also like to add to the argument that other production companies who specialized in localizing anime did so with a lot more tact, even for the youth market (ie: Funimation, ADV, etc). This is why 4KID’s is one of those unique cases of the Japanese creators rescinding their license due to their misappropriating and mistreatment.
  17. Probably around the time I saw him be an irredeemable asshole on the Sonic HQ forums about a decade ago. I don’t remember the exact dialogue but I remember thinking “this is the guy you glorified?” with a broken spirit. He had always been a nice guy in my e-mails as a young impressionable writer and his work impacted me, so to see him show his true self with his narcissistic, vain, and arrogant delusions was just terrible.
  18. Have you not seen them for yourself? Not only were entire segments cut because they were deemed too profane, dark, or visceral for “their audience”— entire frames of dialogue were changed throughout the entirety of the series. This includes changing plot details, removing emotional points in dramatic moments, and the usual affair of change imagery to suit their production company’s agenda; though most enthusiasts of the show will frankly tell you they didn’t do these things as consistently and staunchly as they did to Tokyo Mew Mew or One Piece, but they still persist.
