Archie Sonic Main Discussion

Recommended Posts

Sooo with the introduction of Tangle the lemur (sweet looking character btw!), I’m guessing the FF is no more? Unless those same characters now have completely different roles in the IDW comic and aren’t working together as a team anymore..that’s really sad. 

I mean, I wasn’t a huge fan of the FF to begin with but it’s gonna be weird not seeing them around anymore, especially Sally. =( 

Aaron kind of hinted at them on the last Sonic stream... I think?

..and IDW tends to say "stay tuned" when asked about them, which just makes it sound like they don't want to spoil the surprise.. Otherwise the typical answer to that sort of thing is that they don't have plans yet.. and if it was an issue that required further discussion from Sega then they could have found a way to make their answer more uncertain.. This is getting confusing.

There's always a chance that the FFs will show up, on a later date, after re-establishing this new continuity. IDW and Flynn probably want to distance themselves from Archie first. Unlike what the sillouette might suggest, Tangle is NOT a replacement for Sally, as said here:  

 

Well, I really hope that's the case, but then again I suppose staying as flegmatic about it as possible is the best way to avoid unwanted heartaches. I'm not that positive about this anymore.

Also, gee, I hope I'll never get that angered in the Internet that I'll insult the comics people since that'd be just rude. Sadly they're just doing their job and as long as we aren't told a thing we can't really know what's happening behind the curtains.

And these things are something of what I don't want to know, unlike that one question...

Seriously, Amazon's a freaking Trollazon. I'm just happy I managed to save few issues I didn't have already before they entered to the limbo of sorts.

Well, for me it sounded like they're referring especially -if not exclusively- to the game cast, like how they brought up Blaze. People were complaining she wasn't around enough and now she's coming in pretty early in IDW run.

I'm serious, that guy's a PR man after all, of course he'll try to get advantage of situations like this, don't waste your money on that old stuff, you can buy the new stuff instead, *insert gamecharacterplug*. And he's every right to do so, I know, it's his job after all, it's actually what he MUST do. So this isn't anything personal really, I suppose he's a nice guy and all but his job's annoying to me. It's prolly the unavoidable annoyment since they need PR folks to spread the word and all... I can always choose not to pay attention to his market-talk anymore than the obligatory minimum after all.

Seriously, American marketing manages to get me freaking pissed...

And if they say "stay tuned" one more time I swear...

Wow - that's so much longer than I thought it was when I started collecting the graphic novels :lol: I guess I've got a lot more buying and searching to do! Thank you so much for posting this up. I'm going to put it into a spreadsheet and get finding!!!

Bringing this up again because I realised that I made a couple of accidental omissions:

CORRECTIONS:

-StH#149-#150 has been changed from completely unreprinted to partially: I forgot that the "Chosen One" two-parter from those issues can be found in Selects #8.

-Added StH#198-#211.

-Added "Sonic Comic Origins: Into the Unknown" to the "misc" section.

If anybody spots more errors, let me know.

AMAZING! I was literally just looking back at this today trying to work out which archives / collections I need and which comics I need in order to be able to read everything. Thank you so, so much for doing this :)

Sonic X is so hard to find... I'm going to be looking at around £10 ($15+) per issue here in the UK!!! That'll certainly be left until last.

The Sonic The Hedgehog issues I'm making progress on. It's just getting lucky on eBay and in contacting UK Comic Book Shops.

When I first watched it, the Blaze mention felt like he was trying to cover his tracks.. Someone wrote that they were excited and needed to catch up with the comics.. Aaron responded that the old comic storyline wont matter, that it's a fresh start, but if you know some of the original old characters then you might see some faces you recognize.. Then suddenly started talking about Blaze.. It's a really odd transition.. To someone whose been a fan of Sonic since the genesis days, as Aaron also is, Blaze doesn't seem like an old character at all.. She was introduced in the last console generation.. o.o; and she isn't exactly a character that would jump out at me when discussing elements of the Archie and IDW comics.. If he did just mean game characters then it was worded pretty badly.. >.>;;

For one, Blaze is probably the most relevant reference right now because she's the only one formally revealed outside of the classic quartet. For another, Sonic Rush is 13 years old this year, that counts as old at this point. 

....christ where has the time gone...

yeah I do have to agree, anything over 10 years old is pretty much counted as "old" at this point.

They stopped sending me issues a few months back when I specifically asked them to stop and just send a full refund.  ...But I still haven't received the refund itself despite prodding them about it every so often. =/

Have you tried asking for a digital refund?

I guess I could, though that'd require them to actually reply to me, which they haven't done in months.  Can't hurt to try, though.

Okay, so Cosmo Issue #1 just came in the mail today. And I apparently have 10 issues left.

And considering that series just got demoted to a 5-issue miniseries, get ready to recieve 6 issues of another new series afterward.

Oh damn, was it not selling or something?

And what series would they send me afterwards that would be convenient?

Completed my main series archie Sonic set today, I've officially got every comic released. Now I get to read them all! ?

Now to try for the Knuckles series, will be difficult though as they don't appear in the UK often.

Probably my favorite Archie Sonic moment, from issue 220.

Oh yes, especially Geoff's face in the last panel, "seriously you're breaking my back already and we haven't even started" or something.

Well gee, I suppose their huge campaign didn't work out.

Well, that's what one gets with investing into teen drama with 99% of their resources for ~1 year without anyrthing from the "action" line I suppose. But hey, at least they tried.

If it's "Riverdale" we should really raise the cat on the table, like in a real spectacular way. Getting attention would be the only thing at that point I suppose.
