  1. Why is it called the *Day* of the Dead when it lasts for three days?

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Tell that to Christmas Day. 

  2. Actually, 300 was meant to be another Freedom Fighters vs Eggman “turning point” battle, with the virus stuff kicking off after.
  3. Btw, enjoy that Tracey Yardley cover, because that will be his last contribution to the series for a little while iirc.
  4. That cover is great, but what the heck’s wrong with Eggman’s head? It looks gigantic at the back and I can’t see his goggles.
  5. I still can’t get over the fact IDW chose to reprint issue 1 for their HALLOWEEN ComicFest special as opposed to one from the current story arc about LITERAL ZOMBIES.

      It’s silly, but makes sense from a business standpoint, give an easy jump on point and hook them onto the graphic novels.

  6. Can I just say the songs that Bob’s Burgers come out with are fucking phenomenal?

    I’d seriously pay to see a Broadway Musical adaptation of the show if they made one.

      Of course it would be in an episode where they throw shade at Disney and those who thought they'd get toned down by 'em.

      (Which I'd honestly call a massive improvement in my eyes if they did)

      You know what really grinds my gears? Articles like this one.
      Family Guy uses less gay jokes these days than in the past, and the nature of them has changed. An off-the-cuff, 4th wall breaking remark about the show phasing out gay jokes has been widely misunderstood and taken out of context. So people getting their knickers in a twist about the show still including gay jokes bothers me no end.

  7. I love the way the Doctor Who wiki approaches all the different, often conflicting media on their pages.

    It’d be interesting if we had a Sonic wiki that approached the continuity like that. Mobius Encyclopedia would’ve been a particularly good place to use it.

      I think Sonic News Network does that to a tee. Though I think they went overboard by taking a statement from Alan Denton and turned it to a fact. Though they fixed it now.

    2. Panda Claus

      What statement?

    3. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      The next tweet says they fixed it tho

  8. Gemerl has gone from a Shard to a subdued Omega.
  9. When you accidentally trigger an editing war on a wikia page

      I edited a Doctor Who wiki page with a detail revealed in a recent novel. The page in question is now locked because there’s now a massive debate going on over how said info should actually be worked into the page.

  10. It is in this case. It was becoming apparent in issue 20 that Sonic’s health was starting to deteriorate with the severe lack of sleep and rest he’s currently getting.
  11. Yes, a lot of people called it lazy.
  12. If Sonic 06 had a watered down, uglier-looking Wii port like Unleashed had, I imagine it’d have looked kinda like this


    1. Teoskaven


      Nah, it would have looked like Secret Rings, because that project started exactly as a 06 Wii port.

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      real talk i do wonder about the timeline where instead of secret rings we got a months late wii port of 06

      like would that version of the game be better? in theory that could be the version that smoohts out most of the bugs but smooshing the game into a state playable on wii hardware would likely open up its own host of problems, though having to make the game tinier might have involved cutting some dumb bullshit

      in theory sonic team probably made the right choice  of a separate game to utilize the wii's strengths, whether secret rings did a good job of that or not, but i do wonder if a late wii version could have been the opportunity to somewhat salvage sonic 06

  13. Wait, is M&S 2020 still doing that thing where certain characters are locked to certain events?

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Looks like it. *sigh*

  14. Some of these original animations actually look way better imho. Why the hell did they trash that super fluid animation of Homer and Marge dancing?!

      "We'll never be able to consistently do this type of movement on our budget, lets dumb it down to keep viewer's expectations in check"

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      So that explains the remnants of it that'd seeped into the final version


      Maybe thats why they did a similar dumb down with the HD intro 

    4. Ferno


      Seeing that babysitter scene for the first time a few years back forever altered my perception on the Simpsons Movie's animation tbh. Like it still looks amazing and I still love it from a visual standpoint, but it could've been so much more fluid while also being as HD and refined as it already looked.

    5. Supah Berry

      The early seasons were all Klasky Csupo's work, so I'd say the Rugrats Movies should give you an idea on what it might've looked like had they took the Kamp Krusty film plot. Even then, this might be just me since I haven't seen those films in a while, but I feel even they kinda grew out of the expressive squash'n'stretchy feel as they moved away from cel painted animations with Nick. It's nevertheless a shame either way how Klasky Csupo ain't getting much work lately outside of upcoming revivals.


      (Amusingly, the first Rugrats film held the title for best selling TV Film until being taken by Simpsons)

      In general I think it mainly comes down to outsourcing. Most of our 2D stuff here is outsourced to keep it cheap and manageable, but whenever we do animate stuff in-house we tend to get stuff that looks like this:

      It's just too bad that in-house animation is expensive af. its also why its often called "disney style," because even back in the day when 2D was king, Disney were typically the main ones who could even afford to do it that way with full teams of in-house staff. The guy who animated that SU clip above was one of said in-house animators and it shows.

  15. Question: if the FF were brought into IDW, would you rather have them and Sonic already have a history (not to the extent of Archie Sonic) or would you want them to not know each other?

    1. JosepHenry


      I would like them not to be a team, to be quite frank. Starting fully fresh, but their roles could be the same though.

      Like Sally could still be a princess and Nicole could be her personal AI assistant, but not sure about the others.

    2. Zaysho


      Give them a history with Sonic for maximum salt.

    3. Sean


      "LONG TIME NO SEE" or I riot

    4. Teoskaven


      It's the Archie team that through space-time-dimensional shenanigans has managed to get into the IDWverse, so they have a past but still have to restart from scratch their relationship with Sonic and the others, a good way to have your cake and eat it too. The only thing that matters is to not mention Panders characters, so everything else should be fair game to reference, no?

    5. Celestia


      I'd want a reference to Spinball as when Sonic met them tbh.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Their history can be Spinball since that was their official game appearance.

      "Sonic helped us during the Veg-O-Fortress incident and inspired us to become heroes ourselves!"

    7. Sega DogTagz

      I'd rather skip an "introduction arc" and focus more on what they offer in the here and now.


      They could just be a team like the Diamond Cutters and have worked with Sonic and co on a ton of missions in the past.

    8. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      I’d prefer history with Sonic, if they could even pull that off. But I’m not bothered if they meet for the first time.

      Their new backstory had some implication that they didn’t know each other until Eggman invaded, so it’s not like they haven’t been altered before.

      Either way, I can trust Ian how to handle them so long as he isn’t mandated to write them a specific way.

      I’d definitely like to see them as a mercenary team like the Diamond Cutters. They can call themselves—the Knothole Legion.

    9. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I kinda would want them to sorta be their own people. Like they all have their own separate lives and Sonic and Co. meets them all as individuals. You know, so they can be their own characters instead of only treated as one massive group, or at least let them have more diverse relationships before grouping up.

      Or something. I dunno, just spitballing really.

  16. Wait, if Todd and Riley were orphans, how did they get new parents via Fleemco? Their whole deal is that they replace people. How do you replacement something you didn’t have to begin with?

    1. Dejimon11


      You didn’t watch the ending huh?

    2. Panda Claus
    3. Dejimon11


      Turns out that Mr.Fleem is their uncle and because he didn’t know how to raise kids that’s why he gave them Agent K and Dick as their parents. 

    4. Panda Claus
  17. Huh, The Replacements. Not the most memorable of Disney Channel’s animated shows, but it was alright.

  18. IDW spoiler:


    Vector and Espio brought a captive zombot Charmey into the base, oh god it’s so obvious that he’s gonna break out and bring down the-oh it was a random mobian hiding their infection, okay then.

    1. LukA8


      Random blanket monkey is on my death list now!

  19. I think something more akin to Archie’s Mobius Timeline would fill that hole better. It doesn’t need to retell the entire story, but fill us in on the essential bullet points of each adventure.
  20. I’ve been corresponding with Good Smile’s customer service because my new Nendoroid has a defect, and they’re sending me “a replacement”.

    They do mean a replacement *part*, right?

    1. jingleblurs98


      they're sending you the figure's stunt double

    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      They're sending a replacement you. 

    3. Failinhearts


      Well, lemme tell you a story.

      Todd and Riley were oh, so sad...

      ...'til they came across a Fleemco ad...

      ...What do you mean none of you guys saw The Replacements?
