Archie Sonic Main Discussion

Recommended Posts

Was WU suggested by either SEGA or Capcom, or was it primarily Kaminski's brainchild as his final hurrah before he left Archie to work over at DC?

Either way, it felt like there was less love involved in the second crossover and was more (blatantly) a cash-in. It didn't help that guest artists were brought in to do the various acts that had never really worked with either Sonic or Mega Man. Schoening was okay, but the guy who did act 2 was pretty bad; at least Hesse had done Sonic work in the past (and is a rotating artist with Archie's Sonic books).

I really don't want to talk about another intercompany crossover happening for Sonic's anniversary. They can do something nice and respectful for the franchise, like the aforementioned hypothetical Unleashed finale. No need for Mega Man (in a crossover. I want that book back... :'( sigh.), Dr. Who or whatever IDW or whoever nonsense. Just let Sonic's anniversary be about Sonic and his franchise.

 

THAT SAID, I think it would be funny if sometime after the Shattered World Crisis is over, Sonic & co met Archie and the gang, like that Sabrina crossover from the 90's. Sure, that was more or less stupid and goofy, but nothing's wrong with a bit of levity once in a while, and (to be a bit fair) it fit the goofy era of the series before it got 'serious' with late 40's. But then again, the company probably wants to be seen more seriously, which is why Archie vs Predator and Archie vs Sharknado were published through Dark Horse.

Being totally honest, I don't want to see another crossover for a very long time. Mega Man lost three issues to this complete nonsense, meaning the Mega Man 4 plot is set right up, only for absolutely no payoff because of the hiatus, same way the Sonic Boom comic lost three of it's issues, despite the fact it was being cancelled, and literally had one issue left, and on top of that, that one issue was a underwhelming "LOL GORILLA STORY HAHA", 

On top of that, I want Sonic to get an actual milestone issue to himself again. One that feels like a truly special issue because they've reached a milestone. #250 was taken up by Worlds Collide, and #275 was taken up by Worlds Unite, as was Universe #75 because it was worked in as a normal tie in story to set up Worlds Unite alongside StH #272 and FCBD 2015. It's even worse for Mega Man, who had both of his two milestone issues forced into Worlds Collide/Worlds Unite.

If they had chosen to make it split between Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic Universe and Mega Man, and not Sonic Boom, we would've had it end in September, and Sonic Boom would've had three issues of Sticks-less stories and the Wolf Sidekick filling in for Comedy Chimp, as well as the Lightning Bolt Society doing a scheme in the comics.

i don't understand why people are freaking out about the Sonic/Dr.Who crossover, I assumed it was just a joke on how ridiculous crossovers can be.

The first crossover was awesome. It had some bad parts, but overall it was a pretty nice experience. Then after a few issues, they have another crossover. With X and Boom thrown in. Also a crowd of characters from other franchises. In 12 issues. ....uuuuuuuuh sure, let' just squeeze all the drama in one issue only to resolve it in a few pages in the next issue, dedicate a whole issue to either have the friends get beaten to a pulp or fight a bunch of boss characters who can be defeated in a few blows, and have the boss be overpowered to the point no one can defeat him, only to have an Archie-exclusive character who gained magical powers that is impossible even in his own universe to change it back to normal in the last minute.

Yeah, I don't want to see another crossover. At least wait several years. And please make it more unique and interesting.

Person who suggested a Sonic/Dr. Who crossover seemed to be serious about it. Hence why people argued it as a impossibility.

It's just that it would've involved Time Travel, and Classic Sonic. Then again, we already had Sonic Generations happen, so it's unnecessary.

Oh great, Now your making me miss the Sonic Boom comics cause I really enjoyed Sticks in them a lot more than the show.

Sorry. it's just that I expressed little interest in the comics to even care. That, and the fact that we'll eventually have Sonic Boom stories in a DIFFERENT book. Maybe as a future arc or one-shot for Sonic Universe, or at least for Free Comic BOOM Day.

So, unless there are more members somewhere, these are the only three.

If that's the case for the majority of the teams, this may be good. Not too many characters to keep each one unique, but enough to count as a team.

A mole that wears triangular sunglasses. I smell a reference.

...Also, would it kill them to give him long claws like an actual mole?

Who does he reference?

Wow! Spike, Sonar and Trevor look freaking awesome!  I love their designs and I'm definitely looking forward to these three.:wub:

Spike kind of looks like an oc but he still has a pretty rad design.

Sonar is so cute and I'm curious what she could bring to the table ability wise.

Trevor surprisingly has a "normal" name like Amy, Sally, Nicole etc but that's totally fine with me. His design is alright but I wish he wasn't purple though, we already have Rotor, Big and possibly Thrash. It just feels so redundant having so many big tough purple guys at once, digging dat ponytail though.

For a second I thought the orange thing was a tiger or a lion. Even now I have to keep telling myself he's a porcupine and not a tiger-hedgehog hybrid. Seriously, who designed that thing??? The fox is cute though.

A mole that wears triangular sunglasses. I smell a reference.

...Also, would it kill them to give him long claws like an actual mole?

Or even one of those shovel blade Knuckles used to wear. Actually  Knuckles can dig without those by punching the dirt, so either the mole is disabled or Archie wasn't smart enough to understand moles can dig by themselves.

WE SAW WHAT YOU DID THERE

Also, the preview is supposed to show some pages of Hidden Costs Part 2 along with the main story right?

Another thing to note, are they going to change the cover of the next issue (279?) Because that cover shows Spike as yellow, and Trevor's scarf as blue. In the current issue, the colors changed. (shrug)

And I'm somewhat getting Thrash vibes from Trevor.

And I'm going to guess-

That Nepethys is either a bird, or a cat or a snake.

Out of those three, if they want to be diverse, I'm guessing she has to be a bird, as the Cat and Snake have already been taken by Conquering Storm and Mordred Hood. Her name being based on the Egyptian Goddess Nephthys leans more toward her being a bird, as Nephthys was associated with them by being depicted as a kite, or as the protector of the Bennu.

But then that leaves the question of whether the Battle Bird Armada are an Egg Army unit or just an associate of the Eggman Empire if Nephthys is a bird.

 

Calling it now, but we shall wait and see...
