  1. I'm grateful that Ian answered my question...just not very well. It goes without saying the duel memories wouldn't be a thing, I wanted to know what the cataylist would have been instead P;
  2. I absent mindedly scrolled down the page as soon as it loaded without reading anything and shat my pants. Thanks for that.
  3. I hope this revelation about Sally and Nicole will lead to more representation in the Sonic series' not too distant future.

      I can't really say I support the ship.

      You be you but I do! Much better than SonicxSally!

      To be fair, we have SonicxTails since 1992, the ending theme for Sonic 2 is a freaking love song (If only Tails was older so things would be fine and not wrong at all lol)

    8. RedFox99


      Again I'm not into those kinds of ships (no offense but it's a part of my beliefs).

      in the many (you can bet it was MANY) times i read spark of life i never saw anything other than friendship , and i had the possibility of romance in mind (thanks to a friend who finds the ship cute), from spark of life to "the light in the dark" all i see is close friends tbh.

    10. KHCast


      I think this would be amazing. It's just more normalization and representation for us. I don't see the harm. I don't even read the comics but this would be great to see further expanded on, or simply the presence of LGBT characters in Sonic in general

    11. SonicComicFanboy


      @RedFox99 Not liking something doesn't change the fact it exists. The world is full of people of many colors, shspes, sizes & beliefs.  You are welcome to yours but no nees to reinterate multiple times that you find it off putting.



       I mean I believe humans in general are horrible creatures and we all deserve to go extinct but out of comnmon decency I still tolerate other peoples existances 

    12. RedFox99


      That last part is fair. 

    13. Tracker_TD


      I mean, sure you can say "just friends!" but when the writer of the comic is telling you there's more to it then

      Rotor and Cobor weren't "just friends" either. wink wink

      Wait, so Sally is gay now?

    16. Joseph Henry

      Joseph Henry

      Probably Bi

      Maybe gay in after genesis wave

  4. I guess now that Ian is effectively not working for them anymore it's safe to admit it
  5. I really just don't want SEGA to sweep Archie Sonic under the rug and pretend it didn't exist. Doing that to a record-holding series, it was bad enough they wouldn't allow it to end properly, but doing that would be downright disrespectful. I don't care if the pre-reboot stuff gets included or not, this series deserves better than to be forgotten.
  6. I think (correct me if I'm wrong) the big difference here is that IDW is a much bigger company than Archie, one who could potentially afford to pay royalties for reprinted material. I mean, they are doing just that with their other licensed properties, are they not?
  7. Do you think SEGA's aware of the irony that their flagship character's all about freedom and yet the rules they put on license holders of the character allow very little of it?

    1. SonicComicFanboy


          Probably not.  That would take a level of awareness & introspection I don't think the company is actually capable of 

    2. Strickerx5


      Well tbf they are, at the end of the day, a company. They're no different from Nintendo or Sony. They can't have just anyone putting their flagship character on anything; less they want to loose full control of it.

      Honestly, compared to how other companies handle it, Sega is still largely one of the better ones out there. Shit like Utopia or GMI would not have flown if it was Mario in there. Hell, they even hired some of these fan developers.

      @strickerx5 There's one thing I don't get... Why will they lose their license if others use it? Like, who demands that they give up their rights to the character, or why is it a problem that someone uses a character even if it's nonprofitable?

    4. Strickerx5


      It's just the way the government works man. I'm no legal expert but there's just a lot of mess that can come out of other parties using a property without the owners expressed approval.

      Like, what happens if one of them uses the character in an inappropriate way? Or if that entity is making a huge profit off it and Sega isn't? At that point Sega wouldn't be able to go after them because so many other entities are using the property. They've lost the ability to legally fight them all.

      Its like leaving your pizza out on a table. People are going to take it if you don't mark it down and make sure everyone knows it's yours unless they ask for a slice.

  8. You know, instead of getting a Mania 2 right away, I'd rather they made a Mania Deluxe or something, which they release physically.

    I'd love a physical release of it at some point, and releasing it as-is doesn't seem like good enough an incentive to do it.

    1. OcelotBot


      I think a physical release which also includes the mobile remasters would be lovely.

      I want Sonic 3 remastered before Mania 2.

  9. I still wonder to this day whether or not I was the only one who was able to get the original SSSM#14 during that incredibly brief time it was released digitally...

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I read that as original SSMB#14 and was like "we had a comic?" at first.

    2. ElectricAngel


      Yes. Now upload it onli- *shot*

    3. Forte-Metallix


      Did it have anything of note?

  10. @VEDJ-F Additional note/minor correction: I think Babylon Rising part 1's Digest reprint was just a random "we need an extra story to fill space" reprint and not an intended promotion of the graphic novel (as it made no mention of it at the end, just a "To be continued in SU#34, available to download" message). If it's intended promotions of the graphic novel you're after, I direct your attention to the original SSSM#14: it reprinted (or would have...? Damn this is confusing) part 2 of the arc to promote the graphic novel release. Why part 2 you ask? Because a portion of part 1 was already reprinted in issue 10 to promote Best of Sonic Volume 2, more specifically the softcover release...which also ended up being cancelled. Also there are two more publications missing from that list: -Art of Sonic the Hedgehog Comics: Probably cancelled for legal reasons. -Sonic the Hedgehog Volume 7: I don't blame you for letting this one slip by, as it was the only new listing to show up on Amazon after the hiatus had begun, and its time there was of course short-lived. It would have been titled "Keys to Victory" and would have likely consisted of that second chunk of story between WU and PitS (#270-273 specifically). Cancelled because, you guessed it, deal ended.
  11. The way Archie are ignoring Sonic fans about their subscriptions makes me wonder if that would be grounds for legal action...

    1. Forte-Metallix


      I just want my refund at this point.

      I paid for 24 issues and got three, and I'm not interested in transferring my wasted money to another book I care nothing about.

    2. Sega DogTagz

      I severely doubt you have grounds to take any legal action. Even the most basic subscription practices load up the fine print about what will happen if the book gets canceled or something along the lines.

      This has happened before (Mega Man) and their standard practice is to ship you another one of their comics. Like it or not, you agreed to  those terms when you signed up.

  12. After hearing how Archie have apparently gone back to ignoring Sonic fans again, I'm no longer holding out hope they'll answer my email about the status of the digital comics.

    1. PaddyFancy


      I hate to think of the worst case scenario. I hope it stays online. Since its still their comics. Just no more new ones from Archie.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      They've ignored me about my subscription too. After keeping me in the dark about the book for six years, I'm not letting them just keep all my money without a fight.

      EDIT: Er, months.

  13. This still sort of counts as a license agreement discussion, right? In recent days, I've more or less made piece with the fact that the IDW comic most likely won't be a continuation of the Archie continuity. However, as unlikely as it may be, there is one thing I really want, and that is for SEGA to give IDW the reprinting rights to the Archie series. My question is, if they were allowed to, would you want them to pick up were Archie left off or start fresh? Here's where I churn out random ideas for how either scenario could go: IDW continue printing the Post-SGW graphic novels under a new title to differentiate from their own comic and subsiquent GN reprints, something like "Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog" maybe. As well as printing from Volume 5 onward, they'd go back and reissue the existing volumes under the new name. They'd get all the way up to "Genesis of a Hero" where they are allowed to print the part 4 for the first time for the sake of completion. They'd also start printing Archie's initially planned "Sonic Universe Sagas" series alongside it, maybe without the "Sagas" part in the title, since there isn't another currently-running comic to get confused with. This idea is similar to the above, except in this scenario, IDW are also allowed to reprint the Pre-SGW stories. In this instance they not only continue with the Post-SGW Sonic books, but they also revive previously discontinued titles like Sonic Archives, Knuckles Archives (admittedly a pretty big "if"), Sonic Sagas, etc. Like before they also reissue the existing volumes as they continue to print the new ones, and maybe even do reissues of completed series' like the Selects. Since the original Sonic Universe graphic novels (picking up again with "Babylon Rising") will also be revived, this would likely allow them to discard the planned Universe Sagas series, as they can now finish up the Pre-SGW arcs before moving onto the Post-SGW arcs from volume 13 onward. IDW start their reprintings from scratch. They start a series called "Sonic Classics" or something, and follow suit with the other titles. They can either only do the Post-SGW stuff, or all stuff, in which case they can either do separate lines per continuity or not. IDW get reprinting rights to certain stories. I honestly don't see why IDW wouldn't be free to have at stuff like the strictly game-centric stories, such as the out-of-continuity game tie-ins, and the Sonic Boom comics, and of course, Mega Drive. IDW are allowed to release the Mega Drive graphic novel only, because...come on, SEGA, at the very least let have this one! The first three ideas would, most likely, have to exclude the Mega Man crossovers, since IDW lack the license to the franchise.
