    Idk man its kind of rude and uncalled for when someone is happy or excited for you to respond with ''yawn'' as if to make their opinion less valid then yours, you are free to say you don't care or aren't as excited but you can do that without mocking someone'else.

    or maybe just maybe this is a writer working with what hes got and this is how Sonic Team themselves were fine with it because keep in mind unlike the dark ages of Archie, Sonic Team reviews the IDW comic before they are released.
    Which means they saw this and were fine with it. They agreed with ''this is how Shadow would have acted'' at least the new Shadow.
     
    At this point Flynn is becoming the scapegoat for every nitpicky Sonic fan (mostly from the Penders/OldArchie fanbase) but its really getting tiring its kind of crazy how so many fans accuse Flynn is being biased from accusing him of shoving Sonamy or Sonally down people's throat and dislking their preferred Sonic ship at the same time. (srsy how could either groups not see the flawed argument here) stop trying to accuse Flynn and maybe focus on your issue with Sonic Team themselves and their direction of the characters.
     
    (Edit: its still fine to criticize the writing but dont base it arround Flynn being biased )

    I agree I really liked how SM broke the mold in many aspects of the previous seasons but on the other hand..
    Ash/Satoshi's popularity has really declined the last 5 years despite each studio trying to step it up or improve the character in their own, (with X/Y trying the more mature cooler Satoshi approach while S/M trying to bring back the old Satoshi from the 90's ) but both attempts seems to have failed as merch of the character has sold pretty terrible to the point the last 2 years they didnt even tried to use Ash in most of the promo's or merch anymore. And someone pointed out on Twitter that Nintendo has notice the increase in sales of merch of the regular game characters and growing interest in characters like Red,  Rosa, Kriss ect Heck Pokemon Center's newest promo merch was all about the trainer characters and gym leaders (I left Japan right in the last few days the new stuff came out but one of my friends manage to get few new buttons, and shirt) so they might be open to the possible of idea of focusing on new main character/characters. Which I am open too as well just as long as it isn't the characters of Lets go Pikachu/Evee.
     
    That being said Nintendo still has the belief that the reason why people outside of Japan still watch Pokemon is because American and European children love Ash sooo not sure..

    I think your problem is that you want an Amy centric story, but this really isn't an Amy centric arc. It's the same problem people are having with what happened with Shadow. Sure, Amy is a main character but she's not one of the central characters of this arc. She just happens to be apart of a larger ensemble that shares the spotlight with many other main characters.
    Sonic is the only real central character of this arc, as it's his perspective we focus on in any given issue, and any other character's perspectives tend to shift depending on if he's present or not. Sonic is generally out trying to save people, so he's really not interacting with Amy much so there's no real reason for her to be the focus. It's the same thing with Shadow, the emotional connection of him being turned into a zombot was not the focus of the issue,  just the fact that he turned and adding the conflict at hand.
    The focus of this arc isn't on any individual character, it's on how the characters can collectively deal with this situation with Sonic at the center of it, since he's the heroic main character who's trying to solve it.  So it's better to look at this as an ensemble piece, rather than any arc focusing on a specific main character(s)

    My point was that your focus should be more on ''why is Sonic Team okay with the character portrayal here'' (not that you have to agree with them)
    instead of
     
    '' ohh Flynn dislikes Shadow, this is all a big agenda to make people dislike the character!11 he doesn't like Shadow this is how HE sees Shadow!' fantasy. I don't care if you don't care if a writer does or not, your basing this on assumption and its not factual since Flynn never expressed any ill views to the character which he did with other characters.

    I swear, some of you spend more time complaining about how your favorite character isn't exactly what you want them to be than actually talking about what's happening in the book.
    "Amy is Out of Character, Flynn hates Shadow" 
    It's the same thing, every month here. It's really exhausting to read after the ....5th or so time.

    Ian Flynn literally wrote a story where Eggman moonlighted as a luchador, calling himself El Gran Gordo.

    Yes because Ian has never written anything lighthearted or silly before. 
    Honestly I still say he'd be a good fit for Power Rangers. Both the comic and the show.

    Yeah, no. Even if, somehow, you expect me to believe that this time that's not what you meant when you say something implying that you're the only one capable of critical analysis; you've got a rap sheet a mile long from this exact thing. We've had members tell us outright that they avoid topics you post in because of this exact thing. Multiple staff members have attempted to have conversations with you where you've done this exact thing. You were already banned once, and fairly recently, for this exact thing.
     
    "People could just try not being offended when I do this exact thing, except I somehow don't mean it in that way this time" isn't an option you're being presented with. You can choose your words more carefully, so they don't come off as completely indistinguishable from when you're deliberately being condescending, or you can leave.

    Well yeah that's what happens when you become a zombie, you stop being yourself.
    "A boss fight" and "a prideful antagonist", two things Shadow definitely hasn't been before.
    You do know that not writing a character as you would isn't the same as hating them, or sabotaging them, or flanderizing them, or...whatever else 90% of the IDW Shadow Discourse has been about, right? Shadow's a popular character, sure, and clearly you're a fan, but that doesn't mean the comic is obligated to be The Shadow Show Starring Shadow (And Other Characters Are Here Too). The comic's first major arc wasn't focused on him, though he still played a role in it. The comic's second major arc isn't about him, though he's still playing a role in it. You can quibble over the execution but it's not as if he's being pushed out of the series, he'll surely get his time in the spotlight eventually.

    I'm glad for the work Ian is doing with the cast, anyway, I'm getting tons of negative comments for my reddit post on the games writing, but IDW does it best IMO, with everyone
    Sonic thinks and reflects upon his actions, Tails is kind and brave again, while still being a tech guy, Knuckles is a punch first think later and lovable stubborn, Amy is both in love with Sonic and an independent person, Eggman is deliciously wicked and ruthless, Shadow is edgy obviously, he makes mistakes and he's still badass (issue 10), Neo Metal Sonic was a really entertaining villain, Blaze works well as usual as an introspective person, Vector is a caring and fair leader of his band, Espio and Charmy are respectively realist and brave, Rouge is funny and flirty as she always is, Omega is his destructive self of course, every entertaining, Silver... What an adorable awkward dork, Tangle is full of life and wants out of her boring routine, Whisper is a real mystery. I really like everybody. Just because Shadow made one mistake I wouldn't say the writing is bad. Nor other little things, which the mandates are likely behind too.

    I don't see any downfall brewing. The change between that and what we got saw a more explosive effort on Shadow's part, which probably would have helped the portrayal of his arrogance but, as has been pointed out, its still a form of arrogance.
    I like this version of Shadow because of how at odds he is with Sonic's manner of handling things. It does well to keep him interesting to me in a way where I found he just wasn't in the old Archie books. That said, I DO see the possibility of issues arising if the TSR approach is allowed to fester where he's combative JUST to be combative and he isn't asserting a different ideal.
    I'm not worried too much about that when it comes to Ian but it doesn't look good considering Shadow in the games going forward. Though, their handling of the character has had its ups and downs over the years anyway.
    Also, its extremely easy to contact Ian and get answers to questions like that, even if you're not at a convention. I don't have a hard time believing its true.

    Ken was not the artist Many Hands, Many Hands was most likely someone at Archie that was asked to full in due to a lack of artist avaibale and they lacked the budget to get one one their better guest artist, Penders art style was always pretty obvious as you could tell he struggled making the cartoon characters not too human 

    I think I know what you mean with the coloring because yes when Penders colors his own work he tends to abuse the dodge and burn tools, and it seems to happen in the Many Hands issue of the Satam episode
    ( example of Ken doing his own coloring)

    ...I guess he is still upset after the storm he got with the whole Sally comment or when people point out his comments about asexuals came of as very bigoted. But not too surprising this is a man who thinks its  asexuality is a bad  because it doesn't produce offsprings (that's what he said not me)   so ofcourse he thinks character development is best way trough what's going on between the sheets..

    oh I understand, I just think he is that ignorant. He said he understood why straight/bi/gay people choose not to have children but he doesn't get why asexuals dont want to have children. I think the lack of sex-drive is a wild concept to him?
