That's actually a word-for-word copy of the reddit topic I made 10 minutes ago. I don't think that person actually called.

Lol the nerve of some people

If it is ending, can they, at the very least, have the decency to let the current arc finish?

Yeah like Vedj-f said it doesn't really have anything to do with decency if they just straight lost the license.

If Archie does end up losing the license, what do you guys think the odds are of another company picking it up?

I mean, Sega surely realizes that branching Sonic off into the realm of comics has been a successful endeavor for decades, so I wouldn't be surprised if they queried another company to produce comics.

I really hope this is a misunderstanding but if its true then this is truly sad. Especially for a comic book series that's been running for nearly 25 years. I do wish Ian and the entire team the best of luck. 

Still, we should probably wait until we hear an official statement from Archie before confirming anything.

Even if they got a new publisher I'm looking at sega sticking more to the games and characters.  no more cast of new characters not cannon to game universe like Sally or bunny, etc

Oh, I'm certain someone else will pick up the license. Doesn't really change the fact that this book specifically might actually be just gone though. Hopefully Ian stays on as writer should a brand new book start up.

If it's SEGA strongarming the franchise as some speculate, I actually doubt they will. Else, beyond dodging Penders (which wouldn't even be guaranteed), what's the point?

Well starting over fresh dropping all ties to Archie and Panders and still getting free advertising from an ongoing comic book is still a pretty good deal.
