  1. Just announced at comic con Official statement
  2. 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.

    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:
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. We only found out about IDW’s next Sonic mini series a week ago, and we already have details of what we can expect. 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. The first issue will be available on November 10. The characters featured in the cover were likely first hinted at in last year’s Sonic Bad Guys mini series, as mysterious figures hidden in green tanks: Like last year’s Bad Guys, Imposter Syndrome is being written by Ian Flynn. Check out the cover and solicit below: Full article on site: https://www.sonicstadium.org/2021/08/first-details-new-characters-revealed-for-idw-sonic-mini-series-imposter-syndrome/
  8. 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:
  9. 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/
  10. The names of the mysterious new characters in IDW's Sonic spinoff 'Imposter Syndrome' has been revealed, thanks to the publication of an advance preview magazine showcasing the upcoming miniseries. Say hello to Surge the Tenrec and Kit the Fennec. Surge and Kit will make their debut in the IDW special as incredibly powerful doppelgängers that will shake things up in Sonic's world, courtesy of the twisted Dr. Starline. According to the already-release solicitation for the comic, these two feisty combatants will be causing trouble not only for Sonic and Tails, but even Dr. Eggman. Not an awful lot else is revealed about these two besides their names, but no doubt we will hear more very soon! Information courtesy of the latest issue of Previewsworld. Thanks to 'ThatSoni' on Twitter - aka @FriendBot!

    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.
  12. So I was wondering, do you think that fans will start up petitions or boycott against SEGA in order to get the franchise in a better direction or at least change some of their mandates regarding certain characters? For my personal experience with petitions, they tend to not be that effective since I'm assuming that most big corporations wouldn't deal with petitions, unless there was a huge number of fans petitioning against them. As for boycotting the franchise, I don't think that fans are willing to go that far with making SEGA change the direction of the series.
  13. 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,
  14. 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?

    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
  18. Rob O' is my favourite character ever. Do you think we will ever see him again?
  19. So, between the three comic book companies that had done the Sonic the Hedgehog comics, which of these three comic book companies did you enjoy the best: the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Comics, the Fleetway Comics or the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics? The Archie Comics had much more bizarre moments that happened during its run, like the whole Sonic multiverse thing and it tended to go off the walls at times. The IDW comics however is much closer to SEGA's vision of the characters and its story lines tend to be a bit more straightforward compared to the Archie Comics. The Fleetway comics, while it had a meaner version of Sonic, had some creative story lines during its run.

    Was Amy ever THAT bad?

    My honest answer? No. The crush was played as a running gag, yet people treated it like a serious plot point. All the characters were exaggerrated in certain games, yet people only seemed to notice Amy. She was only the "damsel" in CD. People forget she rescued herself in Adventure 1 and even Sonic in the next game! I see there's been more focus to make Amy more "independent" but wasn't that already her arc in Adventure 1? In that same game, she stopped Sonic and Tails from turning Gamma into scrap metal. In the Adventure games, she turned Gamma and Shadow against the villains. (However, a common argument I see is that anybody else would've did the same. False. Sonic and Tails were going to turn Gamma into scrap metal. Sonic butt heads with Shadow because of his immaturity. On the other hand, Amy wouldn't fight Zero until he hurt the bird she was defending) In Heroes, she had her own sidekick and team.
  21. All Might The Armadillo

    Who Is The Most Underrated Sonic Character

    In my opinion, It would have to be Captain Whisker from Sonic Rush Adventure. He only has a few appearances in the comics. As an enemy, he is very powerful and is known to take on blaze and sonic at the same time but his only game appearance is is in Sonic Rush Adventure.
  22. It's been a very long time since I posted something on the forum, and I really wanted to go back to the community, been kinda off for some time, just doing my stuff without a care in the world... From that time on, a lot of stuff happened... but... I'm posting this on the forum because last time posted it over here I got some heavy criticism, Not that that's a negative thing. In fact, I'd like to see what some people think of my latest abiliites and share their thoughts on my art and help me get better, simple as that. If you have something constructive or would just like to troll me or just ignore me, go ahead. It's more of a "asking for criticism because I got nowhere else to go but don't wanna be rude to the community for having no place else to take honest criticism" kinda thing. I'm pretty sure a lot of you know of my art and that's great... so... As usual... Enjoy 😃

    Am I the only one who hates new Amy?

    Amy was "cute and full of energy", as she would call herself in Adventure. But I don't know what she'd call herself nowadays, except "bland". I get trying to have her "mature" (which she was never as bad as people made her out to be in the games imo) but couldn't you have done that without taking her whole personality? She's so boring now. The last time she ever did anything was Unleashed. Nowadays she's just... there. Like I said, I feel like people really exaggerated her crush on Sonic. They saw Sonic X and used that interpretation on everything. Her crush was only emphasized for jokes like in Heroes. People talk about her chasing Sonic but they never talk about her speech to Shadow about how not all humans are bad. Or turned Gamma against Eggman through kind words. Or had a robot chase her throughout the entire story just to protect this bird. And then put the hurt on him when he finally got to it. Amy was a sweet character whose bad side you wouldn't want to get on. If Old Amy was "immature" and New Amy is mature, shoot, give me immaturity any day. Amy used to have been my only problem with the IDW comics. She felt like Sally 2.0 to me. Then someone told me it because she was overworked since she's the only Sonic character besides Knuckles that would be leader. That made alot of sense to me.
