  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Rest in Piece Mr. Shunsuke Kikuchi.

      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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. SEGA, can you please just pick someone to consistently voice Sonic and his friends. <_<

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      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. 😕

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      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.

  10. I'm hoping 2020 wasn't the prelude to what the new 20s will be like. 😨

  11. Perhaps it was a mistake to download Mugen again...

  12. A part of me wishes J-Stars was ported to the Switch. Even if that would be my third time buying it <<

      Bamco: "Oh did you mean Jump Force"

      😭The sad thing is I already bought Jump Force on Switch. I would forgive Jump Force for it's crimes if it at least featured my boy Gintoki!

  13. I just imagine that Penders doesn't like that Ian managed to one up him in turning a complete joke of a villain into an actual threat that people wanted to see more of. I genuinely doubt Ian would have even turned Evil Sonic into Scourge had Penders not had Rouge team up with Evil Sonic prior to leaving Archie. No one would miss Evil Sonic if he were written out of the book as opposed to Scourge. Sure Ken, can use Evil Sonic to his hearts content but I'm pretty sure Scourge is off limits as he didn't come up with the name nor design.
  14. Ken just may be the only person in existence to constantly remind people of their never live it down moment. Is the universal rejection of such a bafflingly bad idea that hard to swallow? For Ken, Yes. Very much yes.
  15. Ken, Archie only ever got permission to use Shade for a single tie in lasting only a few pages. They had equally as much involvement in Shade's creation as you did, being Shade being inspired by a character who appeared in their comics. Unless you have a contract lying around saying SEGA and or EA has given you sole ownership of Shade then you are just spouting nonsense.
  16. I feel like Jump Force had so much potential only for it to be thrown out the window in making it a Xenoverse clone.

    The gameplay is at least fun but I feel like I could forgive the story if they fix the roster with a few more additional character passes and actually added Jump Stages that aren't from One Piece, Naruto and Dragon Ball. Like I know they are popular and the main focus (and believe me I love Dragon Ball and One Piece.) But there's just something about those three series are the only ones to get two stages each while all the rest are stageless that feels really off.

  17. Just because Shade is based on Julie-Su, being a better version of her. That doesn't mean you can effectively take and use any part of her being in your premium fanfiction Ken. Otherwise Akira Toriyama could use the mountains of expies his characters helped to create.
  18. I hope Tom Kane recovers soon. :(

      Dang, didn't know he had a stroke. Sad to know he probably won't do voice acting anymore, but I'm glad he's recovering okay.

    2. Strickerx5


      Wishing him and his family the best. Guy's a legend in the VA world.

  19. I can't believe I bought Jump Force... again.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      That’s an oof. I haven’t even gotten around to finishing it on PS4

      Meanwhile, I've had the high honor of not purchasing it a single time.

      I just couldn't help myself. Slap Dragon Ball, One Piece or My Hero on it and I have to buy it.

      I will say though, I do appreciate that the DLC characters have little bits of DLC story.

  20. Wait is he going the Google Stadia subscription route once the trial is up? That seems to be asking a lot of people considering they'll probably be waiting months (very likely years) on end for a product with the quality of a bargain bin Wall Mart DVD. This was the prior tweet that sparked that convo Not everything can or should be a subscription service my guy.
  21. "One more sleep til Christmas."

  22. It's a shame the Sephiroth challenge is only temporary. The A.I. on very hard is the right kind of challenging in my opinion.

      I get the need of making this a unique limited time event just this once to celebrate a characters legacy (coughMario35thcough), but I like to imagine if they'll repeat this for the remaining three fighter. Maybe even convert it into a weekly event that spotlights a different pre-released character. And give it a leaderboard to see who can clear the Very Hard challenge fastest.

      Not the I'd take away the old way to unlock characters; it'll just give newbies another option if they're struggling to find and beat them all. Besides, I hate to see anymore UI recreations like FF7's go to waste

      A weekly spotlight would be great

  23. I don't know Ken, some of these out of print graphic novels aren't exactly being sold at a reasonable price second hand .I honestly pity any child who wants to start collecting Archie Sonic this late into the game. I can only imagine their collection would consist of randomly numbered Archives and maybe a couple of the latter issues. In comparison IDW Sonic is not only cheaper but the whole story is accessible.
  24. I either must still be waking up or this is legitimately the darkest timeline for Archie Sonic. Legal issues aside at least Penders has a lot of lore, characters and material to sustain his delusions of a Lara-Su franchise. Mogul has like what? Only the Fearsome Foursome to his name? The Chaos Emerald that granted him immortality can't be used. Mobius still can't be used. The guy barely has anything to work with. The Sonic connection was the only reason people cared or tolerated these characters and with that gone the only interest these guys are going to have comes from the fact that we all know this is going to crash and burn 😕
  25. Its far more likely that IDW would continue from where Archie left off than Archie getting the license back. It might happen one day much later down the road but for now it's probably better that SEGA not think about the comic with how many legal problems it had.
