  1. This timeline needs an update, but has consulted with Ian Flynn for accuracy is some parts, such as what games have and have not happened.
  2. Dulcy isn't going to be part of the main team just because she reappears in the comic.
  3. I haven't hardly seen every Q&A session with Iizuka, so you may be right and I'm sure he knows 90% of his stuff when it comes to normal info about Sonic, but things like that Moon Answer he gave, eh, doesn't seem too serious to me. Maybe he should've said Eggman blew up the moon on the other planet haha.
  4. I think the dictionary definition of Primary Source would be the Sonic Bible itself, Aaron Webber qualifies as a Secondary Source since he's talking about the Sonic Bible. But this is splitting hairs, it's not going to change how either of us view how 'verified' the source is. Regarding the other stuff, you know with Iizuka it like in regards to answering some fan questions.
  5. I'm focusing on the "two worlds" information since, like you say, that's pretty much the new information. Sonic Team deciding not to use something again from a game that isn't considered canon is a little different from claiming a plot point that would affect all canon games. I mean, some people here are taking this info very seriously, but I don't understand what they think the ramifications are? It doesn't seem to appear in the games, and there's no verification besides second hand sources. I mean, do you think it will be a 'thing' in future Sonic games? Personally, I don't think so. But it's an interesting factoid and thankyou for sharing it. The source didn't happen to specify what the worlds were named did he? It's be interesting if there's supposed to be two planets and they're both call "Sonic's World"
  6. I saw you had a source, I specified verifiable. The word of a western employee on the subject is interesting, it's good to know, but SEGA always gives the impression the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Ultimately we can't see the source material so we can't verify it, and we probably never will. I don't really care what developers say at conventions, they say silly things like "Eggman blew up the other side of the moon" to explain plotholes which obviously don't reflect the reality of the games. Because what matters at the end of the day is what's reflected in the games, I mean, what are you going to do about some secret plot point that never made it and nobody knew about??
  7. That's very interesting, but I'm not sure I believe it without a verifiable source. And while it's certainly possible a bible exists with that info as stated, it doesn't seem to reflect the reality of the games, which would put it in the same place as other other curious Sonic bibles created for the series; like the one where Sonic was born in Hardly, Nebraska.
  8. I was chatting with the guy who runs my LCS about the upcoming Megaman cancellation and he brought up that they actually are having problems getting Sonic comics in Australia. Apparently, he says SEGA had a dispute with the people who usually distributed the comics worldwide, so they had Archie switched to an America only circulation, and now shops overseas have to import them from new secondary sources.
  9. If Sonic doesn't reach Issue #300 I'm going to be very disappointed.
  10. What is interesting about Generations being the last thing that happened before World's Collide, is that Sonic reveals that the last time he saw Silver the Hedgehog was during the events of Sonic Colors. So at the very least that confirms the comic book version of Sonic Generations didn't happen quite like the game.
  11. I'm pretty sure Sonic Generations is about as canon as any Sonic & Mario at the Olympics video game. It's nice that the comics are trying to fit it into the story though,
  12. It's a little surprising how soon it's ending, but considering that the Sonic Boom cartoon is already about half way over and we're only on Issue #7, I didn't think we'd get much longer unless the cartoon got a second season. Still, I at least expected it to reach #14 - 16 range. Worlds Unite is longer than the entire SB run.
  13. Also I haven't seen anyone talk about April's sales numbers http://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2015/2015-04.html Sonic Universe got a big boost in numbers thanks to the anniversary issue.
  14. The big reason the Sonic/Sally fanbase has remained nice and relatively un-peeved is because Ian Flynn promised to remain neutral, that no new shipping would occur between Sally/Sonic or Amy/Sonic (though that's becoming less true every issue) A new ship with Sally would be about as well received as the misguided Monkey Khan subplot, by and large seen as a black spot in the good modern comics. As an aside, complaining about complainers is even more obnoxious. Don't pretend you care more about a franchise on a more deep level just because you aren't interested in details others are, the elitism goes down a ridiculous road.
  15. It's pretty telling that I'm being argued against on two fronts - half of the arguments comprising of "Ohh that's just ~crazy shipping goggles~ lol you must think two characters standing next to each other is shipping" and the other half is "Ugh, them being flirtatious is based in canon! Who cares if they show romantic attraction to each other?!" Two diametrically opposite arguments trampling over each other to prove me wrong. Anyway since the 2nd argument is the more debatable of the two, I'll address that. You can call it natural character interaction, but how Sonic deals with Amy's crush is noticeably difference from the source material. This image best illustrates differences between media, in both cases Amy still has her crush, but only one has pandering. Comicbook SonicxAmy Game SonicxAmy In the games Sonic certainly does care for Amy as a deep friend, but there is a big leap from the annoyed/creeped out characterization here to the comic's amused and encouraging attitude. It wouldn't be a problem if it was once in a blue moon, but it's happening almost every arc now. We're not too far off from Sonic Boom levels of ship teasing. It feels like Ian Flynn is trying to have his cake and eat it too, saying he's ending all shipping with Sonic, so nobody can complain that he's picking one ship over another, while adding more fuel than ever to the Sonic/Amy ship.
