@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

That's really sad :(

I hope Ian Flynn gets a foot in Marvel, DC or Image or whichever. His writing talent shouldn't go to waste. He wasn't even an original fan of Megaman when he wrote it, right? It was still awesome tho.

Hope the artists get good jobs too, especially Tracy Yardley. I know Ben Bates is in demand.

This just reminds me how much of sack of crap Ken Penders is, considering his first reply to the news.

"At a minimum it opens the door for KNUCKLES and MOBIUS: 25 YEARS LATER reprint collections. No one else can touch this material."

 

You are DELUSIONAL, dude.  I hope you never see a dime from it.

Well...after six months of silence, I'm not surprised, but it is sad to see part of my childhood go out on such a sour note.  Still, it's nice to have confirmation one way or another.  Frankly, I feel like Archie wants to shift to being a television/movie studio, rather than a comic book publisher, anyway.  My only real question is: When is Archie going to refund the subscriptions?  I'm not a subscriber myself, but putting it off for six months MUST have made a few people mad... 

 

The many people who worked on the comic are already reacting.  There's a collection of their tweets here:

http://www.tssznews....nership-ending/

 

And Tyson Hesse is calling for people not to blame any one party for this happening:

http://www.tssznews....lks-here-there/

 

BUT...I still blame Penders :p  Doesn't help that he's being a jerk, either on purpose or just carelessly. THAT'S not going to help him at conventions...

 

 

 

And I'll remind people, we still might get Ian Flynn's Lost Hedgehog Tales sooner or later here:

Y'know, even at it's worst, I don't think the comic EVER had art as bad as THAT *points to shirt*

 

*suddenly remembers Naugus Games/Super Special 15 and Cry of the Wolf/Sonic 113*

 

Oh...right...*shudder*

 

But, y'know...I'm probably going to get some flack for this, but I can even defend Pender's RUN, up to a point, even if the author has gone FAR beyond being redeemable for me.  We all make fun of the Echnida politics now, but at the time, the Knuckles book sure beat the main Sonic comic's seemingly endless, fruitless search for a plot after they killed Robotnik.  At the very least it felt more focused.  And the later stuff, like Knuckels' adventures in the godhood and the afterlife and Titan Tails were at least entertainingly bizarre.  It might not have been GOOD, but it was the best we got until Ian blew everyone else out of the water.  Shame he got so greedy and took advantage of a bunch of legal oversights.  Otherwise, he might've been remembered as the...fifth or sixth best Sonic writer instead of just a giant jerk.

 

And it's probably not ENTIRELY fair to lay the blame all on Penders, either.  It seems like Archie just lost interest, Sega wanted something closer to the games, and all the old writers wanted to take a stab at a lawsuit, so I doubt any of the big players  were too broken up about it.  Except all the writers and artists currently on the book, but HEY who cares about them? *glares in Archie's general direction for cancelling Ian's Jughead "run" after two issues*  

 

But, I think it's fair to say he's the source of this.  If Penders hadn't filed that lawsuit, we wouldn't have had a bunch of copycats, and that's what probably tipped the scales for Archie and Sega.  He's the thorn in the paw, that lead to an infection, that lead to the books untimely demise.  Kinda hope one of the artists that he worked with sues HIM for using their ideas.  It would be poetic at least.

 

*Sigh*  I just hope Lost Hedgehog Tales comes out soon.  Might give the whole thing some closure.  If it hasn't been non-disclosure agreement-ed to death.

...Well, this has been a roller coaster of a week, huh?

 

The part about talking about bringing back "fan favorite creators" has me hopeful SOME of the old guard might be back.  Don't know if that means Ian's basically a lock or if they're mostly talking about artists so they can do their own thing, but this is a bright spot.

 

I'm going to guess it's probably going to be EVEN MORE based on the games than it was already trending, though, and...I'm not sure I'm interested without the Freedom Fighters.  Probably give it a shot, though.  Nice to have some good news.

I was wrong. I was saying that based off his work post genesis wave. Everytjing before tjat (which i just read) was great.

Ian Flynn completely redeemed the comic after Penders turned it into a bad soap opera with furries. I have nothing but respect for the man, considering that for a sizable chunk of time the comics were the only good aspect of the Sonic franchise.

Yeah. The stuff after the Genesis Wave was great too. I misjudged it after a quick look.

I wish they kept the original design for Dulcy tho. I get they were trying to streamline the character designs but they could have kept her weight and kept her anthro at the same time.
