So this happened on the IDW front.. 

I tried playing "Where's Potto?!" but I couldn't find him.

Was literally just about to post this. My buddy that works next door was sent this by one of his IDW friends.

Fleetway characters and stories are also in legal limbo as they are owned by Fleetway themselves

Are they though, or is this one of those things that people have repeated for so long it's been taken for granted?  Certainly the old comics contain copyright info for both Sega and Egmont publishing, and you hear stories about creators even saying they own the characters.  But has anyone with legal expertise at Sega or elsewhere ever pushed the issue to find out how much Sega could legally claim?   I doubt it.  I'm not saying that Egmont (or the creators) don't own things, but I can't imagine anyone in a position to do anything about it ever checked to see what Sega would be allowed do regarding reprints, printing outside the UK, or using the characters.  Archie certainly wouldn't have bothered, and I can't picture Sega investing the time to double-check old paperwork regarding long-out-of-print comics.  IDW appears to be more tenacious in figuring out what can and can't be done with the IPs it gains access to.

Might be worth at least asking them to try to look into things.

Wait, is that photo related to the new comic business? Iizuka's presence can only mean bad things to expect from it.

Izuka's New Rules

1. Sonic can Never Cry

2.  The Freedom Fighters can only stay in the comic if they are Sonic's maids & butlers

3. Tails must wear a yellow cape & green speedo

4. Infinite is in every issue

5. Sonic is now basically Batman

Ew i can't believe people truly think a comic without freedom fighter is not as good as a Sega Sonic cast with only cannon characters in it, have people forgotten about Shadow, Blaze and the Deadly Six and how they influence so much untapped world building by themselves especially Shadow who introduced a dark plot for the first time since sonic adventure.

I think after this and that new "Sonic Official"'s somewhat dismissive-y way of putting their break up with Archie I need to step it up. :unsure:

I really need to make that "letter" ready and send it before it's too late so that I can say I at least tried. :(

I feel pretty agitated yet again.

Get that Webber out of there if you want to have anything to do with a plot in that comic you're cooking up! As far as I've seen the man's making everything a big meme, everything he touches. :rolleyes:

And I'm not saying that kind of "meme the comic" wouldn't sell, it could be a best-seller for all I know, but when I think about comics I really like, there's humour but also a plot.

Just my humble opinion but this isn't going well for my tries to stay interested in this if this is the new "creative team" in all it's  beauty...

I just remembered they did promote Mega Drive and Genesis of a Hero, probably because those were the most game centric storylines, even though the Freedom Fighters were in the first issue, so I think they didn't promote the comic regularly because they didn't like it for it not focusing on the games. That's just what I think (and I know I made a similar post to this).

If they promote the IDW comic regularly it'll be like a fresh start, I could forgive them for snobbing the previous comic.

They also promoted the first issue of Sonic Universe's "Shattered", specifically the variant cover because of its meme-related theme.

And it was a Freedom Fighters-less arc. Not surprising. Btw, does this meeting deconfirm Ian as a potential writer or not...?

I don't think so. I mean this might the creative team for now
