    So, there's a new BumbleKast out, and it's HUGE, and filled with nothing but Q&A. Since I have a bit of a busy day today, could somebody please go there and note the most interesting things that Ian answered?

    Okay, I was gone for a couple hours. Why the fuck are we discussing this all of a sudden?

    Remember when Sonic referenced the Hooligans? Now we know that they aren't even allowed to be used. False hope.

    I believe Ian implied that he can't even USE Cream in the IDW series in Bumblekast 73. When a question was asked about if she will get a bigger role in IDW, Ian said that maybe, IF he gets the chance to use her. I could be wrong, but I think SEGA is going back to the times where Omega, Cream, and Gemerl aren't even ALLOWED to be used, and Issue 9 (like Issue 3) gave us a false sense of hope. Dear god, SEGA's going backwards in terms of creative freedom. I'm getting real tired of their shit that they've been doing recently.

    I want to confess something: in its current state, I'm not really feeling this series. I mean no ill will towards ANYONE working on this comic, nor do I belittle anyone liking this comic, but I came here to state some constructive criticism that I have with the book. Here are my issues: The pacing in this book feels... sluggish. Not much goes on in one book, and it's kind of starting to feel formulaic. Just bash up some robots, and maybe a bit of plot at the end. This is a bit of a generalization, but I think you get the point. This leads into... I feel this book is lacking in substance. It looks very pretty, for the most part, especially with ABT. However, I feel as if many things lack the soul of the Archie series. First off, the characterization and character interactions, while nice, can feel a bit same-y. The next thing is that most of the characters bounce off of Sonic, and Sonic only. You could argue that he's the main character, but it'd be nice if other characters are there to bounce of each other, like Tails and Knuckles, Whisper and Tangle, etc. Did I mention that Neo Metal kinda felt predictable? Like, he was predicted to be the guy in the chair since the first issue. Finally, there's none of that pizzazz that the Archie comics had, pre-boot nor post-boot. It feels too close to the games rather than being the "blank slate" that was promised last year. The book is WAY too centered on Sonic. I know that he's the main character, but Archie could focus on multiple characters and still tell a really compelling story. Also, he's too highly worshiped, such as the first book, where one of them said would potentially DIE just for Sonic to wink at them. Despite being hyped to death, with all the fanart and stuff, I feel that Tangle and Whisper add NOTHING to the story. As in, they could be taken out and nothing of value would of been lost. These character shouldn't be treated like this, and they should leave more of an impact on the reader. I don't know if this is fatigue of Ian Flynn, mandates from Sega, or something... but for right now, I just don't feel that this comic has enough to actually CARE about. Of course this could change in the future, and I hope it does. Again, I don't have anything against them, but for some reason or another, this book feels... off. I don't hate this comic, but I feel it could be SO much better. Here are some suggestions: Have more character-driven stories. There's more to a comic book than just action. Give the characters some development, make them feel more real and relatable, and, y'know, make me care about them. Have some some subplots/backup-stories. There is a vast majority of stories you can tell. They don't all have to be "defeat Eggman/villain of the week". Give other characters more spotlight and more meaning to the story. You created new characters for a reason, and they should be used for more than just hype material. Put in some worldbuilding. None of the towns in this book so far are named, nor are mayors of towns. It's minor, but I think it needs to be said. If this is going to be a long-running comic, it needs to have a world that is memorable. I'm saying all of this for one reason: to make the comic something that is good for everybody. I'm not asking for another Archie, but I think it should break away from the games enough to get its own identity, and feel more satisfying to read. I want this book to be beyond great, to surpass Archie Sonic, but to do that, we need to speak up.

    Well, Ian in the SAGE interview DID say he's going to do something with Neo Metal that wouldn't have flown by in the Archie book, so I don't think it'd be TOO far from the realm of possibility.

    Another interesting thing that Ian said was that he's going to do something with Neo that would have never flown by in the Archie book.

    I think my answer for a cover would be Spaz, if he's available.

    In my head, I imagine Cream' actually saying that with a smile and her cutesy voice, and I just can't stop laughing. Do you mind if this goes in my sig?

    I think that's a bit out of character, don't you think?

    Oh. My apologies.

    Yes, I agree that the anime is where the King was portrayed his meanest. However: 1. He still has a hidden heart where it counts. 2. The anime isn't canon anyways. There may be a few easter eggs, but definitely not canon.
