Huh now that I think about it, the avatar does fit with the reactions to most of the art here... O_O

New preview from The Storm:

There are so, so many things to comment on here, but I think I'll stick with "What in the hell is with Geoffrey and the chair thing at the bottom?"  I understand sitting backwards on a chair to be relaxed, but that last shot makes it look like he's trying to ride it like a bike.

Oh boy... Where do I begin...

The art style is pretty bad. The eyes are creepy anime like. The hair details still make the characters look weird. The shading has made Geoffrey shiny in some points. This and the expressions (good god these expressions) don't make the characters better. These expressions make them look dull and lifeless! Every panel has got the characters with half eyes (bedroom eyes?) It seems like everyone is completely bored of whatever the heck the situation is, When it's probably supposed to be that the characters were supposed to be serious on whatever the situation is.

Secondly, those backgrounds are...pretty lazy. Just searching for hurricane like photos and other wallpaper like photos and photoshopping them as a background. It would have been much better if we could have gotten a sketched with some details background instead. Of course, this takes time. (I think the first page had both of them in a space station-esque area with a bunch of holograms? I think some holograms were literally images, even that one panel from the Sonic comic.)

And there's the reused image of Remington, and...he's got eyebrows to make the design a bit more worse than usual D: I wonder why there's a black and white gradient behind that last panel where Geoffrey is sitting? I want to think it's for the speech bubbles, but then there can be another box outline instead of an oddly placed gradient??? I'm wondering how the speech bubble format will be arranged in this page.

There should've been more time spent for this page to be honest. Some parts of the background arrangement is a bit of a mess.

Now that'd be the cherry on top of the cake. :rolleyes:

Call me eternal optimist but I hope it's something else... :blink:

Yeah but it'd be perfect. He'd take a concept made by his replacement who he claimed stole his ideas and then have to explain why it's ok for him to do it.

I didn't say it but it's very similar yes ^^. BUT it could still change, I don't have the whole story, remember ;)

One thing I can say about this project is it's actually pretty neat that you can give us some insight about the project itself. I wouldn't call this spoiling yet though. :D

I like to actually see why some decisions are made, it's not necessary, but it certainly is interesting to see (in a way, from the different changes in-between developing and publishing and such) how creators' trains of thoughts keep going. So thanks a lot for all of these tidbits you've shared in here.

And before anyone asks, no, I'm not being sarcastic here, I'm serious. :mellow:

Yo wait. Now he really is stealing ideas. How does he get away with this? "Its not a genesis wave. Its a...saturn wave."

Well, as far as I know, Penders has been "pretty exposed to influence others cause" that he happens to come contact with.

For now, it's an "anomaly, a disruption of the space/time continuum" with "evidences of at least three previous events of similar force".

 

Hate to ruin Penders' party here, but those "three previous events" made it so that the events of his book cannot happen in any way, shape, or form.

It's also possible he's referring to the events Sonic was going to be sent back to change in his planned follow-up to M25YL for #160 before he left the book.  I'd check the quote itself in the thread where he posted his old plans, but his forum is still down.  If anyone has an archive of it, I think the topic was titled something like "In Response to Numerous Requests"?  Unless I'm confusing it with something else.

"It was those anomalies that led to the emissary meeting with the praetorian"

Might not be the Genesis waves after all. Or maybe they're linked ?

Also, there's something about a missing second. Was that mentioned in the M25YL stories ?

Wait, is he referring to those thunderstorm-thingies in the original one?

Feh. It isn't Archived. Dammit all to hell. 

If I recall correctly though, basically Sonic going to the past was going to wind up changing the timeline in some fashion, and King Sonic was gonna hover around as a kind of 'time ghost' unable to do anything. He even compared to DC's Flashpoint on his twitter.

And there is the real Ken Penders everyone. He doesn't care how you feel. If you don't praise his work, you are not worth his sympathy. 

You mean I shouldn't worship and love the work of the man that stole the face of Anthony Mackie?

Spoiler

Alright, guys.

Look.

I just removed an inflammatory post, something that we have not wanted to see in this topic specifically for a while, and things have mostly been good since it was addressed, like, two years ago. I realize the comic ending is going to bring out some unpleasant emotions, and I realize Ken crawling out the woodwork with one of his signature Hot Takes™ on the comic industry will no doubt exacerbate that. But I do want to see this thread continue, both for discussing Penders's plans and talking about the book's history in general (as it's so heavily tied to the original Archie comic), so I think it's important that we keep cool heads and not shoot off with the usual "fuck Ken Penders" or "fuck SEGA". Like, I'm not happy either, but I'd rather we try to be a bit more constructive instead of hurling insults.

Frankly, I'd rather limit the amount of attention he's going to try to milk out of this whole thing. So, yeah, the thread will continue, but let's just cool it.

It really is sad that Archie didn't finish off the last story arcs or at least the Overdrive comic, seeing as though it was said that it was independent of the comics =(
