  1. Honestly, I think that the continuation of All-Star Batman & Robin (or Dark Knight, Boy Wonder if you wanna call it that) would be released before the first GN of Lara-Su. Either that or Dark Knight 4. You know it's sad when Frank Miller has a better chance of doing either because Brian Azzarello basically asked Miller what the plot for a potential sequel would be, then basically wrote it himself. Ain't anyone doing that for ol' Pen.
  2. ...But will she still going to be a living lie detector that will prevent anyone from lying in front of her that will be mentioned only once and never again?
  3. I'm back after another hiatus, and, honestly, I'm surprised that Ken actually did something by releasing Geoffrey's bio. And it is as bad as I expected. Ugh. This just makes me think that, in addition to wanting reprint rights and the cash that'd come with it, the real reason Pen wants to buy out the old creators' copyrights is because, literally, he was too lazy to try to rewrite history without them. And would someone, for the love of all that's good, please tell me if they're still supposed to be aliens or not, if Ech'chyd,nya is actually still a thing or what.
  4. Well, we got Naugus and Wendy, plus Breezie is pretty much severed ties with Eggman. As did Snively for the time being. Nack & his team are work for hire; Eggman just hires them a lot. My guess is that the BBA were basically strong armed into joining the Eggman Empire, like the Dark Legion in the old continuity. I hope that they only joined to avoid Eggman's wrath, not because they are actually loyal to his cause.
  5. I'm not really buying that "My wife didn't tell me" excuse. Ken's always been chomping at the bit to spread his name around so, even if he doesn't really prioritize video games at all (sticking to TV & film). So you'd think that if a large, well-known video game company asked him to do some consulting work or an upcoming SONIC game, she would tell him. My guess is that it's a half truth. He probably was busy with something, Bioware left a message with his wife, and then when she told him, Ken decided that it wasn't important enough to actually give a sh*t about.
  6. So wait, is The Storm going to be included in the physical copy of the first book or is it strictly digital only? I mean, from the descriptions of it, it's largely pointless as it follows Remington and Geoffrey, two characters who I believe aren't even going to BE in LSC proper, but some equality for physical and digital releases is the least he could do.
  7. Family drama was kinda a thing for a long while in the book. To be fair, it wasn't just Penders who did it; Bollers and Flynn are equally guilty of that too. Locke's whole deal was talked about a lot prior in the topic, so I'd go through that if you are curious and have time to kill. I think most of it survived the site having a stroke from a while back; a few pages were lost, but most of the analyzing done about the character might've survived it at least.
  8. All I'm trying to say (and what I hope Shaddy was too) was that Ken outright admit that Locke was based off his father, and with that, you can infer that he was using the book to work through his issues. That's old news tho, and for the sake of safety, I'd say that it shouldn't be made into a big deal. Again. I admit to doing that in the past, but this topic is already on thin ice as it is.
  9. No offense to Maverickdingo, but I'd rather wait and see if Ian actually gives a confirmation (unless he has already). But otherwise, yeah.... I gathered that from the freaking solicitation when they announced it? Even back then, I got Batgirl 2009 vibes, because it's final issue was just like that: full of flashforwards to stories the author wanted to tell but couldn't because of the Flashpoint reboot. What surprises me is that Archie would be willing to lose a pretty decent selling licenced book from Capcom, but seems to desperate to hold onto the license property from SEGA.
  10. Aside from (from what Ken thinks is) teenage drama, Lara isn't going to be portrayed as anything less than perfect. She'll get into the bet, go on the waterfall in her Sukini, meet Micheal, then win because she's inherited her father's Chaos Powers and is the new Chosen One who will save the civilization and possibly recreate the planet. That's pretty much how Ken writes, then and now. The only question is if Liendiva actually does something worth a sh*t to show that she's a villain. Despite her being on talking terms with Julie because "family forgives family, no matter what", which is such complete horse crap even without the idea that she basically mindraped Julie twice and tried to... kill her(?) on at least a few occasions.
  11. You wanna know what the sad part is about that first tweet? The fact that he referred Eggman as "Robo-Robotnik". Technically accurate, given Eggman's convoluted origin in the old continuity*, but just goes to show how little of a shit he gave about the franchise as a whole. No, it couldn't be Eggman, the Japanese surname that was used in Adventure onwards, it had to explicitly be mentioned that he was ROBO-Robotnik to emphasize that it was the character that Ken "created" back in the early issues. I still have no idea how he's able to own a copyright on characters named Robo-Robotnik and Evil Sonic the Hedgehog, especially when the latter was given more personality and a name/appearance change, that apparently brought more credability to his claim or something...? Of course, I have already mentioned how ludicrous the idea that the Dark Legion being any sort of sizable threat to the Eggman Empire was even before the creation of the Dark Egg Legion/Egg Bosses. Robotnik/Eggman poses a threat to the entire world, the Dark Legion barely can keep up a threat to Knuckles and was barely able to threaten Angel Island even before Bollers had the Eggman-backed Dingoes subjugate the Island and force the Legion into hiding. *Because it just wouldn't be simple to just bring back the original Robotnik in a new body, noooo it had to be a friggin' alternate universe doppleganger who holds no past connection the versions of the characters we've followed since the beginning. It's telling that Flynn only alluded to this stupid ass origin when he absolutely had to, like that flashback story where Naugus tells Eggman of when he met Robotnik in the Zone of Silence because Eggman barely knew who Naugus was at the time.
  12. I know that. But there was basically an easter egg in that Dear Abby story which implied that Rosie had a crush on Chuck in the form of a letter. Ken just didn't pass up the opprotunity to create more tediously boring relationships like the Knuckles/Julie one. Now THAT relationship during his pen was as dry as dirt and going nowhere fast until 25YL where Ken outright showed off "See, remember Lara-Su?! Proof that my Soul Touch relationship hoodoo really does work!"
  13. Unless I'm misremembering, it was originally Romy Chacon (coughGabriecough) who wrote that Not-Ask Abby story where that seed was planted; while Penders was planning on dedicating a full story to Amy & Bunnie making sure the date went well because Eggman might screw it up or something. I'll just say this when it comes to romance and the comic: I don't mind the romance. Yes, even with Sonic and Sally/Amy/Fiona (not Bunnie tho, that was just uncomfortable all around). It's just that A) most of the writers couldn't write romance worth crap (not Penders, not Bollers), and B ) even when they DID try, they had to shove it full of bland, awkward for the sake of awkward angst and drama. And even Ian couldn't help that as well in the end before the reboot. I have no idea why he thought a Monkey Khan/Sally/Sonic triangle would help strengthen Sally/Sonic, it just made things worse. It's telling that before Ian, the most convincing romance to come from another writer was from Angelo DeCesare, who friggin' started the Bunnie/Antoine romance.
