IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I do feel like if this issue isn't the point where IDW Sonic grows its beard, then it's definitely leading to that point. ABT's art really shines in this issue, and it's gonna be real nice to see where it all goes from here. Looking forward to the coming issues!

Glad to have been keeping up with the series so far. Caught up so well, all that's really left to do is wait for the next issue. I do wish they'd allow us to get subscriptions, though.

The thing that I hope happens in the future is that ABT gets to be more of a main artist, around the frequency of Tracy, if not higher. He is truly a delight.

ABT does a lot of work: pencils,inks and color so he does less frequently than Tracy who only does pencils

Maybe he will also do pencil-only (like he did during the Archie time), or pencil + inking. We can't know for sure, especially for a comic that it's only started since four month xD

Was it Earth in Sonic Advance 3 though, or Sonic's world? 😜

Sonic's World, obviously. Though it's possible that Route 99 is indeed in the United Nation, depending on how much influence Eggman was able to have on the makeup of each Zone.

Green Hill and Angel Island both say Advance 3, like every other game in the series, must be set on Earth.

And Sonic Adventure 2 says Shadow is dead, yet here we are! Every other game he's not there and I think they've finally fixed it, but nope, he's back the next one! SEGA and their faulty continuity.

...What?

Nah, Green Hill is definitely in Sonic's World, while Angel Island floats with Master Emerald power. At least by post-2010 status quo.

Didn't see the body afterwards.

Just a severe concussion.

I've been out of this topic for a while, but i see we had yet another discussion about the FF case, should/will they return or not, and all that, and y'know, despite this still being the biggest thing surrounding this comic for me, i just... stopped caring about it, don't get me wrong, i'd be lying if i said i don't want to see these characters again, but i'm way past the point of accepting that we may never see them in a official media ever again, still, despite all that, one thing always comes to my mind when this topic is mentioned: We know that it's up to SEGA to approve or not the characters for the comic, and one of the main points that are brought to explain why they won't allow these characters to be used is "They don't represent the brand" or "They are not sonic-y enough" , so, let me get this straight,

You are saying that this represents your brand...

Congratulations. You not only totally failed to refute anything I said, you also took a massive detour from the topic a hand to take a dump on Shadow for no reason. A character being revealed to have survived a seemingly fatal event is in no way comparable to the franchise's director pulling something out of his ass which invalidates all prior world building and blows a gaping hole in the series' internal logic.

Seriously, if you wanted to pick on contradictions in the series' continuity you could have at least used Blaze or Nega's backstories instead of Shadow's survival, which had a whole 1.25 game story arc dedicated to addressing it.

I mean it's not as if they've introduced Sanic as an actual, canon character. Making a few mostly out-of-media references to a goofy meme is an entirely different matter from deciding what characters are going to be major players in a new comic.

You know, considering the whole legal fears and concerns that spin around using fan created context, can someone tell me what the origin is of Sanic and it's design. If SEGA didn't create that themselves but are making monetary gains off of its use isn't that a bad case of plagiarism? And if it isn't, what other fan made designs could SEGA just freely adapt if they wanted to? I know of at least one I'd like to see played with in a comic book setting under Flynn's pen, but something about this whole affair with Sanic just seems wrong to me.

Sanic came from this video apparently.

There probably is something fishy copyright-wise about this, but who knows. Who wants to come out as the guy who created Sanic? 😛 Maybe SEGA somehow contacted the original creator and asked his permission.

Out of curiosity, why would you say Green Hill was definitively on Earth? Aside from the fantastic aesthetics, the original Japanese manuals for Sonic 1 don't name a planet and Forces specifically located it on Sonic's world.

Similarly, Angel Island is mobile and (depending on the nature of the gateway between worlds) could conceivably move between the two.

Memes are tricky but I think Sanic looks like a clear case of derivative work where the copyright is such that Sega's completely in the right to profit if push comes to shove. Similarly to why Pender's claims to his characters are a quite shaky when they're heavily derived from Knuckles' design. The "legal fears of using fan creations" reads to me more like a courtesy to us fans then anything.

They only re-used Sonic's face! Nothing else was recycled there!

I know, I thought that it was pretty slick... double points for remembering to reverse the image too.

I have a crazy idea. What if we got Sonic Universe book... that is made of 1-parters? So far this is how the main book goes. Sonic has large cast, but don't tell me 12+ characters a year wouldn't satysfy even the greediest fan.

 

(Still if that happens I hope Sonic will still see his buddies. Ever since SU started Shadow was basically moved  to another dimension... literally when you think about it.)

Well, 1-partner only sems be a bit limiting for me, but I would really like a Sonic Universe-like without the hard "4-partner only" limit too. Having the size of the story based on what the story need, and not on an hard-limit would be pretty great.
