  1. I can only imagine a small child appreciating having an autistic character to relate to but the problem is any small child would lose interest in TL-SC the moment they realize Sonic isn't in this Knuckles knock off series but the series isn't even intended for small children should it ever come out once pigs start flying. I am on the spectrum and because of this I've had classes (mostly in High school) with others who are on the spectrum. This experience taught me that while as someone who is higher functioning I might need some assistance every once in a while in contrast to some who may need far more frequent assistance. That being said, I don't think I'd feel comfortable writing an autistic character because said character could come off as offensive as something Family Guy may pull or come off as a pointless informed attribute.
  2. So will the expected Cease and Desist from SEGA. You can't reprint any of those stories if they feature characters and place you don't own Ken. 🤦‍♂️
  3. They both look terrible but Hershey looks even worse than Geoffrey in my opinion. Like, her oval shaped face looks terrible Geoffrey's muzzle not looking as fluffy as Geoffrey's makes me feel like there's a grown woman under there stretching her body. And their noses shouldn't be that big either.
  4. Oh boy, Jaker and Perriwinkle. They haven't been seen since their debut issue in Sonic issue 131! I sure hope he brings back Bimmy too. I'll be super disappointed if he doesn't. Just because you gave them with a name for their single appearance doesn't mean they are memorable characters with any kind of a fan following. But then again.. given that this is Penders we are taking about... it would actually be more surprising if he did realize this.
  5. Ignoring the "Surprise" at this limited edition, I highly doubt he will be selling anywhere close to 100 of those books. Even factoring in the few supports he does have I highly doubt even a quarter of them would be willing to buy up this or the standard version of the first book. If he's lucky he'll sell maybe 8 of these? That's just my estimate anyways. But a certificate of authenticity, I really shouldn't have been as surprised as I was by that.
  6. Rest in Piece Mr. Shunsuke Kikuchi.

    1. pppp


      Wait he passed? Oh man, you have no idea how sad that makes me, his work on Dragoball and Z is some of the most memorable and unique music out there.

  7. You know, sometimes it's better to make a pre-existing character more interesting than to just make a new one from the ground up. Yeah, Ed Brubaker does deserve more credit for what he did for Bucky, but even if Ian had just killed off Evil Sonic or had Locke just voo doo the guy back to Anti Mobius there's only so much credit you yourself would get for creating an evil counterpart to a licensed character for a licensed book, and that's not even getting into Evil Sonic's unpopularity. Ed Brubaker and Ian Flynn actually did bring value to Bucky and Scourge respectively. It'll always be ironic that Ken who coined this excuse fails to grasp when people actually have done it.
  8. I doubt even the ghost of Jack Kirby could get through to Penders at this point. The man could try to explain the difference in creating as well as co-creating many iconic characters and stories where they could still stand on their own outside of being tied to the greater universe as opposed to creating characters solely for a licensed property that you can't really use anyway. The man'll only acknowledge the facts he wants to acknowledge when he wants to acknowledge them.
  9. Ken you can't reprint M25YL and just say that the unaltered 25YL!Knuckles is just the Praetorian. That's clearly Knuckles and always was intended to be Knuckles before you legally couldn't use Knuckles for your fanfic. Except not really. I'd say Ian wrote a better story about it when the Archie comic needed to be rebooted. Pre-Genesis Bunnie's original limbs were just turned robotic. Writing a story where her nervous system is no longer working well with her robotic limbs can justify a need to upgrade them and make it a interesting story but to me at least doesn't come off as the kind of story that anyone whose handicapped can relate to as opposed to Post Genesis Bunnie who had to have said limbs replaced to keep her alive and be be able to walk around like before. Actually, if Knuckles could reply to any of that irrelevant debate he'd no doubt say none of that matters because he's red. But to get to the actual topic since this isn't the place to get into this, No Ken, like the person who tweeted their reply said. Mobius as far as the old continuity is concerned was confirmed to be a future Earth. SATam as was planned for Mobius in the SATam continuity. Knuckles isn't an alien here, he's just a highly evolved anthropomorphic Echidna. Sonic isn't meant to be Star Trek Ken. Not every aspect of it has to be super scientific. Yes there's some Sci-Fi in it through Eggman and Tails being scientific genius and Shadow's backstory and creation being a created life form. But no one plays or reads Sonic for Sci-Fi.
  10. Man, one of the few times a game tempted me to play at 4/5 AM.

  11. Yeah, I've bought quite a few graphic novels in the past, I fully expect it to be only feature stuff directly tied to Ken's Knuckles storylines but that being said, some of those stories he wrote a small handful of characters other writers created like Athair and Wombat Stu. I don't know what the deal is in regards to characters SEGA owned and reprint material but I highly doubt that the same rules apply to characters that SEGA ended up not having ownership to due to Archie's infamous contract goof. And it seems Ken responded to a reply of someone doubting he'd publish the thing. "As well as letting me make my Knuckles movie, making M25YL the canonical future, not killing Lara-Su, Julie-Su or Locke (Thus breaking SEGA's rules in regards to continuity exclusive family and romances.) and making me a secondary licensor who can have direct input as far as my creations are concerned but let's forget those non important facts." And why should they? SEGA's not going to get in the ring to get back a bunch of characters they will never directly use. There's a big difference in fighting to keep the likes of Tails or Knuckles, Amy Rose or Shadow compared to a bunch of characters originating in some American comic that not a lot of Sonic fans will even know. This is basically like if Toei somehow lost the rights to some Dragon Ball movie characters like Dr.Wheelo or Garlic Jr. Sure Toei and maybe Akira Toriyama would be annoyed and baffled but they sure as hell won't fight for insignificant characters that aren't even relevant to the story nor super popular.
  12. Except that while the glut of those issues featured characters you created there are still characters that other writers made that you'll either have to alter or cut entirely. I also find it interesting that this stops before issue 125, before Knuckles returned to life, and Angel Island was taken over while Sonic was lost in space.
  13. U-Uh... Ken you are about 500 years too early to post this. A couple of preview pages and showcasing translations doesn't mean the Lara-Su Chronicles is any closer to being made a reality. I don't know, I think had he just made a simple web comic continuation rather than fight to get back a bunch of recurring B and C listers he could have had his cake and eaten it too. I doubt SEGA nor Archie would care if Sonic, Knuckles or any of their characters appeared in a former writers free to read web comic. Fans new and old could check it out. Too bad we live in the darkest timeline. *Insert standard fresh start comment here.*
  14. I almost forgot to post about these. https://twitter.com/KenPenders/status/1357491943329026049?s= Except no you won't. Like it or not Ken, you are going to have to make them new characters. Alicia Acorn can't be Sally's evil counterpart if you can't use Sally. You could make her the evil counterpart to your Sally Expy but then as I said your making a new character. It just doesn't work. Um... won't he have to redraw large portions of all of those comics to make that work? I sincerely doubt SEGA will be okay with him profiting off of their characters. He'll also need to ask Mike Gallagher too won't he?
  15. SEGA, can you please just pick someone to consistently voice Sonic and his friends. <_<

      Consistently for how long though?

      I don't know how these things work at all, but it seems like SEGA keep their English VAs on rolling/short-term contracts and don't actually value their contributions to the series. If prices go up or they want unions or whatever, SEGA's like "nah man you're expendable bye bye". Or whatever Big Wigs are seemingly holding the brand by the throat just throw around mandates like "this show is doing well, sochange the rest of the franchise to match it".

      I guess I just wish it was as consistent as the original Japanese version. Yeah, SEGA's mandates are weird given how inconsistent each product is in the quality department. 😕

      lol, that's my point. Smith has been Sonic for 10 years, and Pollock has been Eggman for almost 20. That's unheard of consistency in the English Sonic VA department. I'm not saying it's good enough, but it's certainly something.
