  2. Just announced at comic con Official statement
  3. Something I've thought about on and off but never really bothered committing to was that it'd be nice to have a central hub discussing Ian Flynn's podcast, the Bumblekast. There's always tidbits and some information that gets out regarding the creation of the comics, his thoughts on them, and it's where we hear about supposed restrictions. This stuff comes up in the comic threads a lot but it gets lost easily, so I figured I'd do something about it. Bear in mind, I don't really listen to it that much and just get the summaries/timestamps from you guys anyway, so I'm probably not the best person to create the thread, but I'll at least offer to give listeners of the show a space to discuss it and I can try to (at least for a while) make bookmarks of info/new episodes for people to see here. And if something needs to be added to the listing, feel free to ping me here and I'll add it when I can. There's also a link to a huge masterlist of previously asked questions that will also be good reference for Archie/IDW discussion. Q&A Summary links: - December 2020 summaries, by DaBigRG - January 2021 summaries, by DaBigRG - August 23, 2021, by Wraith.

    The IDW Shadow Topic

    Shadow is a bit of a hot topic (hehe) in the IDW comic book series right now, so much so that the discussion in the IDW topic always seems to default to him. While that should be allowed, it sometimes overtakes anything else the topic is talking about, and therefore I found it might be useful to create a separate topic for it! Purpose: To lower the amount of lengthy Shadow discussions that tend to flood the original topic, while still providing a place for that discussion because its valid and important. I love Shadow, we all love Shadow, we want whats best for him (or what we think is best, anyway). Rules: Discuss Shadow in IDW. Referencing other media is obviously allowed, because it may be useful to compare, but we're just talking about Shadow here. ALSO: This is a cosmically unimportant debate. No insulting, condescending remarks, ("seriously?" "oh, IM the idiot?" "how can you even think that?) or things of that nature. Remember what you're discussing is really not the end of the world, as important as we Sonic fans find it. Be civil. Otherwise just uh... have fun, if this sorta thing even is fun. Thread theme:
  5. So, there's been a lot of talk lately about whether or not the Freedom Fighters from the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic books should come into the IDW comics. For those of you who don't know who the Freedom Fighters are, they were basically characters who came from the Sonic SATAM cartoon series that came out in the 1990s and they made their way into the Archie Comics in the 1990s. For me on the one hand, I honestly don't mind the IDW comics being in a separate universe and staying much more closely to the games. On the other hand, I grew up watching Sonic SATAM and reading the Archie Comics, so I do miss the Freedom Fighters themselves and maybe there is a way that they could come into the IDW comics without being too in your face with the readers. What do you think? Do you want to see the Freedom Fighters enter the IDW comics or are you okay with the Freedom Fighters not being in the IDW comics?
  6. What are some mandates that SEGA has for the characters or for the stories that you don't agree with or you wish that they changed? While these mandates are mostly related to the IDW comics, here are a few mandates that SEGA did with the characters and stories that I don't agree with: Regarding Shadow's characterization, I don't like the fact that SEGA is basically saying that Shadow should always be edgy and moody and not be allowed to express that many emotions. This also extends somewhat to the other characters, like Sonic where they can't be portrayed beyond their main characterizations in the games. The whole "Chao should be known as "it" instead of calling them "him" or "her." This wouldn't be a problem if SEGA had actually done this in the first place and not just make that rule so recently. It just ended up confusing the fanbase about how the chao should be addressed in the series.
  7. So, SEGA had set up a few mandates for the IDW comics that had caused some controversy for the writers and the fans alike. Here are some of the mandates they have set up for the comics: Game characters cannot have relatives unless they were established in the game canon, i.e. Cream and her mother Game characters can not die. Sonic can't be shown getting too emotional (i.e;cry). Game characters cannot enter in a relationship. Amy must always be in love with just Sonic but they can't get together. Much like the post-reboot of the Archie comic, the words "Mobius" is banned—the planet is simply called "Sonic's World". Sonic must always win at the end. Characters and material from other licensed properties Sonic the Comic, Archie Sonic, Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic SATAM, Sonic Underground, Sonic X and the Sonic Movie cannot be used. According to Ian Flynn, a specific incident involving Shadow's characterization when he's exposed to the Zombot infection was written in a specific way because of Sega mandating that he be written as an "overconfident asshole rival" character, similar to Vegeta. He later followed up with an explanation that out of every character, Shadow has the most mandates and notes attached to how he's portrayed. Sega has stated to Flynn that only male hedgehogs are allowed to go Super with the Chaos Emeralds. Sega says that Team Dark is no longer a thing. It has been stated that there is no money in Sonic's World, and that anything that alludes to money (such as Rings acting as currency) is strictly forbidden. Knuckles is not allowed to leave Angel Island unless he has a very good reason to. So, here are my thoughts on some of the mandates. Regarding the mandate about Sonic not getting too emotional, I can actually get by that since there are other ways that Sonic can still get emotional without crying, as the Metal Virus Arc has shown. Also, I'm okay with the characters not dying since you don't really need anybody to die to make the story more interesting. And in regards to not using characters from other licensed properties, I have a feeling that SEGA is slowly letting up on that mandate since Honey that Badger did show up in the IDW comics and they are planning on making a comic book series based off the movies. The only mandates I have issues with is how Shadow is being portrayed and that Team Dark is no longer a thing. I feel like these mandates are only slowing down Shadow's character and it's making it harder to write his character if there's nothing to back his character up with. So, I'm wondering if SEGA will eventually change some of these mandates, especially if they are getting in the way of the story telling for the comics? I have a feeling that they will eventually have to tone down the mandates for Shadow if they want the writers to include him into the stories.
  8. Issue 1 of the 'Imposter Syndrome' IDW miniseries lands in bookshops today! The mini series will be tying into the main book and act as part of the “road to issue 50.” According to the solicit, “imposters” of various characters are appearing, spelling trouble for both the heroes and Dr. Eggman. It will feature two new characters - Surge the Tenrec and Kit the Fennec!
  9. Hey everyone! I'm Rabbitearsblog and in this thread, I talk about my personal thoughts about the Sonic the Hedgehog IDW comic book series as I read each issue / collection and give out my thoughts on each collection. Now, the reason why I wanted to make a separate thread about this is because I'm way behind in the IDW comics and I didn't want to slow down the main threads discussing this series with me just talking about the older issues, even though we are 40 issues in now. If you want to talk about the current issues from the IDW series, then check out the IDW Megathread. But now, let's get started! Sonic the Hedgehog IDW Collection #1 : Issues #1 -#12 So, I just picked up the first collection in the Sonic the Hedgehog IDW series and moving forward, this will be how I will start collecting the series at this point. So, I probably won't be picking up this series issue by issue. I rather have the whole story arc in my hands than read each issue on a weekly basis. But anyway, let's talk about my thoughts about the first collection of the series: Overall, I really enjoyed this collection! Sure, I wished that they developed the world that the characters are in a bit more, but it's nice to have a well written Sonic the Hedgehog series for once! Also, here's a question I want to ask: WHY CAN'T THE SONIC GAMES BE WRITTEN LIKE THIS? This collection is full of emotional moments and great character interactions that I wished that the games had incorporated and maybe hopefully, we will eventually have well written games again in the near future. Here are some of my favorite images from this collection:
  10. So, when I say that people insult the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, I mean like how some people say the following things about the franchise: *Sonic was never good. *There are no good Sonic 3D games. How do comments like these make you feel? Do you feel turned off by the franchise because of these comments or do you still stand by the franchise despite the insults being hurled at this franchise? For me personally, I honestly don't care much. Sure, if there are unreasonable comments like "Sonic was never good," then I am quick to point out the hypocrisy of those statements. But, most of the time, I don't let these comments bother me, because at the end of the day, I like what I like and that's all that matters to me. If I love Sonic the Hedgehog, I will constantly make videos and fan art for the character, because I want to show my support for the character, no matter what others say.
  11. Earlier this month, IDW released a new Sonic comic as part of this year’s Free Comic Book Day. That comic is now available to download for free from Comixology! You can check it out here. The comic takes place in IDW’s Classic Sonic universe, and largely focuses on Amy Rose as she explores a new hobby. The entire comic is not devoted to this story, however, as the comic also features a recap of the primary IDW Sonic universe, to prepare readers for the road to issue #50. ---------------------- Full story here: https://www.sonicstadium.org/2021/08/sonic-fcbd-issue-now-available-digitally/
  12. So, do you think that the harshest critics of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise hurt the franchise? What I mean by "harshest critics" is that there are some critics who are never satisfied with this franchise and will say nothing but negative things about this franchise, despite overlooking some of the good games in this series. Now, that's not to say that all criticisms against this franchise are unwarranted. There are some pretty valid criticisms against this franchise, like how the gameplay hasn't been that good for the past decade or so or how the stories are not being written that well as of late. And there are times where Sonic Team does listen to the criticisms, but the way they handled the criticisms tended to get bad results like say the fans wanted more comedy for the series, but then Sonic Team don't write the stories very well as a result. Or whenever the fans asked for more gameplay for Sonic, but Sonic Team took that as "only Sonic should be the playable character" despite the fact that fans didn't say that they wanted to get rid of the other characters. However, what about the critics who bashed the series without playing the games first or bash the series before any new games have been released? Wouldn't that cause the fans to not want to play the games just because a critic said that the game is going to be bad, even though there's no concrete evidence about what the game is about yet? Or what about when a critic says that "Sonic has always been a bad franchise" despite the fact that there were some good games that were released in the series? So, do you think that the critics who bashed the series without playing any of the games or who judge the series without any concrete evidence on the developments hurt the franchise?

    I need some help...

    So, i just got into sonic idw, but its been hard to find issue 1 anywhere for under 20 bucks. Do you guys know a place where i can get issue one.
  14. So, while the franchise had its ups and downs over the years, it's great to be a bit positive about the franchise and think about some of the things that you do like about the franchise. So, what do you like about the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise? It can be a specific game you liked, the characters you liked, a gameplay style, anything you liked about the games. Here's what I liked about the franchise: I like the fact that Sonic is a free-spirited character who plays by his own rules, but is still willing the save the world whenever he can. It really separated him from other video game characters and his positive personality was quite an inspiration for the audience. I really liked Sonic and Tails' friendship with each other. Even though in recent years, their friendship isn't quite as elaborated on as it once was, it's great to hear that Sonic practically treats Tails like his little brother and it was this aspect of their relationship that I loved the best. I really enjoyed the Sonic Adventure games. I think that they did a fantastic job at expanding more on the Sonic lore, as well as giving us an open world gameplay style that was quite unique to the franchise at the time. I just love how creative the world is. I mean, what other video game franchise have you seen that features a blue talking hedgehog who goes through all of these wacky zones to grab some Chaos Emeralds? The fact that we get to play as Super Sonic in the final level in most of the games is quite a rewarding experience! This is an aspect of the games that I really miss and I wish that the current games incorporate Super Sonic a bit more, as well as getting the Chaos Emeralds back into the games. I really loved the Chao Garden segments in the Adventure games. Not only are the Chao such cute creatures, but I always loved doing side quests in the games. In the older games, I loved the fact that you were able to play multiple characters and not just Sonic. What I miss so much about the Sonic games is being able to play as Tails, Knuckles, Amy and many other characters.
  15. Are you pissed that Ken Pender's characters can't return unless they return by miracle standards? Then these are great options on replacing those characters. 1. Character Merges. - Julie Su should be replaced with a Female Echidna that is really beautiful and has ninja abilities. Like this Female Echidna named Ember the Echidna. - Scourge the Hedgehog - He should be replaced with Nazo the Hedgehog or Ashura the Hedgehog taking his place as Sonic's evil clone. Nazo the Hedgehog Ashura the Hedgehog - Fiona Fox - She should be replaced with a replica of Sally Acorn who looks like Alicia Acorn (the original Anti-Sally). Appearance of Alicia Acorn in which whom this Fiona Fox replacement should look like - Lein-Da - She should be replaced with a beautiful female anthropromorphic animal of any kind who could be a great henchwoman of Eggman especially the fact they will have the same personality as Lein-Da. These would be great appearances for a potential Lein-Da replacement. - Geoffrey St. John - Should be replaced with Aeon the Hedgehog Appearance of Aeon the Hedgehog - Hershey Cat - Should be replaced with a popular Female Sonic fan Character. Link to Female Sonic OCs https://www.google.com/search?q=female+sonic+fan+characters&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwj6_KXk-_TuAhWHGN8KHZwzBCUQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=Female+Sonic+Fan&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQARgBMgIIADICCAAyAggAMgIIADIGCAAQBRAeMgYIABAFEB4yBggAEAgQHjIGCAAQCBAeOgcIIxDqAhAnOgQIIxAnOgQIABBDOggIABCxAxCDAToFCAAQsQM6BwgAELEDEENQy78DWLfWA2DU5QNoAXAAeACAAU-IAcUIkgECMTaYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZ7ABCsABAQ&sclient=img&ei=LCsvYPq2JYex_Aac55CoAg&bih=617&biw=1366&rlz=1CATMUU_enUS934US934#imgrc=pYyufFdIaFQ17M 2. Have Freedom Planet merge with Sonic This a great solution in my opinion due to the fact there are multiple Sonic/Freedom Planet Fan-fictions like Sonic x Freedom Planet: Power of Chaos Link to the Fan-Fiction: https://m.fanfiction.net/s/11786220/1/The-Power-of-Chaos So these are two potential solutions for replacing Ken Penders Characters if IDW decided to bring back the SATAM and Archie Characters,
  16. I know Sonic has been portrayed differently in most media all over the world but I wonder if our cultural values and norms affect how he is portrayed?

    Opinions on Blaze

    I personally wanna know everybody's opinion on Blaze the cat,
  18. Hi there these are my IDW Sonic Comics Issues 1-36 and latest. I will be updating this thread when I get the latest Issues thanks for looking https://ibb.co/jbHnGD https://ibb.co/p0fc78y
  19. So, since it seems like SEGA is trying to start a new chapter for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, what do you think that SEGA needs to do to improve the franchise? For me personally, they definitely need to improve on the writing. The writing for the series has been pretty much a hit or miss and I think that they need to start developing the characters again and not focus too much on the jokes. Another thing they should do is to allow the other characters besides Sonic to be playable characters. It's been awhile since we last played Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose and many others and I hope that the next Sonic game will have them as playable characters besides Sonic. And the last thing that SEGA should do is having no more gimmicks. That means that if one Sonic game is successful, don't try to repeat the storylines or the line delivering in the following games afterwards. Like for example, when Sonic Colors was a success, SEGA tried to make the other Sonic games that came afterwards have the same tone and dialogue as Sonic Colors. But it didn't quite work out because there were some Sonic games that just didn't have the same type of tone that Sonic Colors had, like Sonic Forces for example. Also, many fans will just be burn out by having the same type of games being shown over and over again throughout the decade.
  20. Reposted here, I'm currently in the process of rewriting the fan fiction as a script or the first issue, to turn it into a fan comic, so I'm looking for fan artists to join me and draw parts of it, and perhaps more fan writers to co-plot the script, it would be a great project to celebrate Sonic's 30th anniversary as well, so contact me only if you are interested in the plot idea and taking active part in it. A cool "what if" story concept that explores the ideas set up in the Reboot Archie comic. Right now I'm planning a 6 issues short mini-series (or fan fiction if no one is interested) with potential for more season ideas, and includes the concept for redesigning the protagonists. If you want to hear more about the story and details, contact me because there is a lot more. Otherwise, express your opinions on what format I should turn this story into. I'd like it to be told as visual storytelling, rather than fan fiction. I'm aware there isn't much else to showcase at the moment, I'm just asking for help for this cool project, to make it actually happen in a larger way, and hopefully I'll have something more in the future (pun intended).

    Could a Wonder Woman movie work?

    Hello! It's no secret that I love comicbooks and movies and Comicbook movies. It's played a huge part in my life writing wise and story telling wise. So, let me ask you a question. Can a Wonder Woman movie work? People have said for years that a Wonder Woman movie would be to difficult (Diane Nelson) to boring (Joss Whedon) or to odd (Christopher Nolan) to make. All these arguments would hold up if not for this little gem This is a Full Length animated Wonder Woman movie that DC made in 2009, and, ya know what? It's really good! So why can't DC make a live action Wonder Woman Movie if they have shown that they can make a pretty good animated movie? Now don't get me wrong, I know that making movies is hard, believe me I know, especially animated movies. But why is Wonder Woman that only one in the Trinity to not get her own movie?! Superman has had 6 movies Batman has had 9 So why can't Wonder Woman be in that mix? Well, I think it's because DC comics tends to hold characters they know will make money really close. Also, everything except Wonder Woman at DC comics is Batman. That dark and gritty tone of "My parents are deeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaad" Over dramatic BS that batman is all about. DC seems to think that is the reason we buy their comics or watch their movies. But the reason we watch Batman is because he's a nice change of tone from the bright world of DC comics. I'm getting off track. I think DC is afraid that if they made a Wonder Woman movie, no one would see it. And that's the truth, DC (Really every studio) is afraid that if they make a movie about an empowered woman, than audiences will shoot that movie down. I don't think that's the case, I think that the world is ready for a Wonder Woman movie. What about you? Would you watch a Wonder Woman Movie? Do you think it would work? What do you think a WW movie needs to be successful? What I think a Wonder Woman movie needs to be successful. 1. NO JOSS WHEDON! Seriously, NO! STOP! NO MORE! HE DOES NOT READ COMICS! He is lame! The only good think he's ever made was Firefly, and the rest was with his Brother Zach who I think has real talent. No Joss Whedon! 2. Keep Christopher Nolan away from this film as much as humanly possible! He only understands and likes Batman. Wonder Woman is not Batman! 3. Get someone who gives a shit about Wonder Woman. Like Gail Simone, or that woman who wrote the animated movie! 4. Please put some pants on her. DC, it's not 1946 you don't have to worry about men coming to your movies because of sex appeal. Pants! Or at least a longer battle skirt. 5. remember that SHE IS NOT BATMAN! She's not OK? OK?! She's not Batman... 6. Make it be fun! DC needs some fun in their movies! Like the Reeve Superman movies. Fun! F-U-N FUN! and finally 7. Don't let Feminazis write the script... Please... Don't let them... they will ruin her... and also, Feminazis aren't fun to work with... Just trust me on this...

    Your Top 3 Sonic Moments

    My Top 3 Sonic moments are..... 1.Sonic X Showdown In Space(SA2): This is when Shadow risks everything for the humans to save their world. I remember crying as a kid because I already knew death at a young age but when he came back to the series it was legendary and just in time. 2.Sonic Battle/Emerl: This game was awesome overall for a Gameboy game and the saddest thing was destroying the thing you created. I literally put hours into making him the ultimate fighter and now I had to beat my own creation. 3.Secret Rings/Ending Cutscene Sonic shows us how badass he really is by sending away a genie and saving another. This was so satisfying because I had a lot of difficulty with the motion controls and I made it through. Do you have a top 3 or maybe just one. Either way let me know below
  24. Over the past 3 decades (it feels weird saying that), our favourite blue hedgehog has had a ton of games and has branched out into all sorts of mediums. Loads of writers have been brought on board over the years, some of whom interpret the characters better than others. That said, which pieces of media do you think have the best and the worst interpretation of your favourite character? I'll start off with the hammer-swinging heroine, Amy Rose! Best: Sonic Adventure. This game really lets every part of Amy's personality shine, from her determination to do what's right to her compassion to, of course, her love for Sonic (although, other than the...questionable lyrics of My Sweet Passion, it's not in your face). At the start of her story, she can barely defend herself but by the end, she's helped a random Flicky find its family, befriended one of Eggman's robots (who she encourages to free himself iirc) and proved herself as one of the strongest members of the cast with her UN-declared weapon of mass destruction Piko Piko Hammer. If her arc in SA1 isn't character development, I don't know what is. Honourable mention: Sonic Heroes. I know a lot of people aren't a fan of that cutscene but other than that, I really like Amy in Heroes. She could've easily went after Sonic herself if she wanted to, but she didn't, instead helping Cream and Big find Chocola and Froggy. Also, she encouraged them not to give up multiple times throughout the game (after defeating the Egg Albatross when "Eggman" turned out to be a fake and they weren't close to finding Chocola and Froggy at all, and when Cream and Big felt scared at Hang Castle). Her optimism made her the backbone of Team Rose. Worst: Sonic Free Riders. I hate this game with a burning passion, and I especially hate how dirty it did Amy. Not only is her Sonic crush dialled up to 11, but she's a complete dick to everyone including Cream - you know, her best friend. A lot of 2000s Sonic media liked to give Amy the "psychotic fangirl" narrative, but at least she's enjoyable in them for the most part; she's extremely unpleasant in Free Riders and is one of the reasons why I never finished it.
  25. Rob O' is my favourite character ever. Do you think we will ever see him again?
