It might work to go to the wiki on a different browser. I've been having the same problem with images on that wiki specifically for a while, but I realized a day or two ago that I hadn't tried using another browser and to my surprise it worked.

Which one did you use that works? Tried Chrome but it doesn't work. Firefox?

I can't wait to start this. I just ordered this month's issue and subscribed to a place who will send you an issue every month it comes out. I am excited!

You're lucky!!

The series is so much better when you binge read everyhting at once instead of waiting 2 months for each issue

Yeah, that's sorta what I'm thinking would help.

In Archie, stuff from SatAM, AoStH and at the time relevant Boom were allowed into the comic for crossovers with the main universe, but not Sonic X characters. Do you think this could change with IDW? IF the human world is available, which I think it is, and considering they will be soon streaming Season 3 in Japan for the first time, and Sonic X being added to Netflix in US and Europe, could Sega change their minds about Sonic X stuff in comics?

Like, I don't want to see Chris, but I'd welcome the other humans, Cosmo and the Metarex, even Chris could potentially be retooled to be better, like he could replace Hope for Shadow, obviously Topaz for Rouge, Cosmo for Tails to interact with, I do think good could come from it, even with them in few appearances.

I can actually see it happen now, the other "canon immigrants" as the other topic calls them, depends... Sega may want the Freedom Fighters out because they want to take distances from the Archie book, but if they were taken directly from SatAM, I dunno, same for Sticks, she's no longer relevant so she may be included, it really depends if Sega will approve something from Boom, despite them dropping it as a sub brand. I don't know, right now stuff from X seems more likely, as for the SSSSS Squad, not sure either. The best outcome would definitely be having characters from all these dead cartoons.

If the show still continuing to be rerun on American TV to this day, or still being widely available on streaming services, or getting Blu-ray rereleases didn’t change their mind already, then neither will this.

As much as I want to get the trades there's a part of me that's hoping they do a hardcover collection like they do for Transformers, G.I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters. 

Just a collection of 16 issues per volume would be nice.

This comic will never achieve its potential as long as Ian has to write around Iizuka and Co's ridiculous decrees like Sonic living in a totally separate planet/dimension from humans.

Long time lurker here, just came to say that I can see a possibility for it to work. I mean really, the only kind of mobians we ever see interact with the humans were Sonic and co. so it's possible they're relying on that fact. Plus, humans haven't really been important for a long while so maybe this is their way of doing a soft reboot.

Can I just say I don't think Sega's rules are really that restrictive? 

He can't cry but there's been other ways of showing that he's upset. He's run ragged and is clearly feeling the weight of the Metal Virus. 

He can't have relatives. I don't really see the problem here. For the most part outside of maybe Uncle Chuck the relatives in Archie weren't all that interesting and they'd add basically nothing that "Sonic has parents I guess".

He can't lose. This one I feel people just flat out misunderstand. He's hardly winning right now. The idea is that he can't suffer a permanent loss which is like just basic storytelling. He can lose but has to come back from it.

No Romance for Sonic. Good. I personally don't think this is the kind of series for romance. We've been through shitty love triangles in Archie and whatever the Elise romance was in 06. I'm not against romance and wouldn't mind seeing one with the original characters but nothing like the BS we've gotten before.

  There was enough hints in the pre-Unleashed games of humans interacting with funny animals besides Sonic and Co. (like the Echidna's ruins happening to be within train distance of Station Square).

There are two emotional states. Emotion (crying) and No Emotion (everything else). 

Spoiler

For the record, I'm pretty sure he can actually cry, assuming the mandates are the same as Archie. He starts tearing up when he reunites with Chuck in one of the early reboot issues. He just can't bawl.

I'm just saying crying is literally the only thing I ever see people talking about. 

Also I agree he can cry he's had tears several times just not bawl which I don't know kinda seems like what people are asking for when they say he should cry.

To wield a knife as Sonic, probably.

Since he doesn't really use it afterwards.


Sonic the Hedgehog wouldn't be caught dead using a knife, knife, knifing weapon, but an evil doppelganger, totally.

Well a Sword is totally different. :p
