Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

I really do hope they keep Archie's stuff in print. Well, some of it obviously. It's big and messy.

I wonder if we'll be seeing other Sega properties at IDW? Will they be keeping Mega Man in print?

Mega Man isn't Sega, though.
I mean, it's not out of question that they'd pick up the license, but I imagine they'd want to at least see how well Sonic does first. And I can't really see a total reboot of Mega Man being a success; people would want it to pick up where the Archie series left off.

So I saw something on tumblr that was a revelation to me.

 

We should really stop giving Penders the time of day. This attention people give him? It's what he wants. He wants people talking about him, he wants people spreading his stuff around, because it feeds the notion that he's a martyr. It keeps exposing everything that happened like an open wound, and for years after the lawsuit ended, it was a constant reminder that Archie had failed to protect the license and that Ken had been more or less successful against them and Sega. Every little bit that people kept focusing on continued undermining the whole enterprise, and whether or not Archie deserves to be called out for it (because they share some of the blame here for mismanagement), that doesn't really justify Ken or his position at all.

 

And now, for better or worse, we're giving him free publicity. Penders has even already amassed a small army of sycophants and loyalists that hang on everything he says. It's working.

 

If you want Sonic to succeed at IDW, if you care at all about the Archie comic's legacy, or this franchise at all, we need to forget Ken Penders. We need to ignore him when he says something stupid, egotistical, self serving, or borderline offensive. I know this fandom likes to focus on the negative to an absurd degree and laugh at the bile fascination, but continuing to give this egomaniac the time of day will only serve to continue emboldening him.

 

Make Ken Penders irrelevant. Do not engage him. Do not reblog his tweets. Do not share his art, even to laugh at it.

 

Make him as irrelevant as he deserves to be.

Even if he didn't, everything he says about Sonic gets spread around. It's basically free publicity at this point.

They should totally do two titles. New creative team for a jumping point then Ian Flynn and whoever he wants for Lost Hedgehog Tales. He can disguise the old characters as much as he can or just tell whatever story he wants. Multiple Sonic universes are game canon anyhow.

Archie's books did a great job of building an enormous universe, and I think if IDW sticks to one title indefinitely it will feel very claustrophobic in comparison. But I think we can assume they'll give their core book a good long time to figure things out before they expand. 

 

I would once have expected that some sort of "classics"/reprint series would be inevitable, but with IDW's recent "shrinking our comics output by 25%" thing I'm not so confident now. This may end up as a one-series thing, hopefully with (at the very least) the odd mini or one-shot to offer a little extra. 

 

I'd really like to see Sonic Universe relaunching alongside the core book, but that may be seen as too Archie-ish, or premature given that IDW doesn't HAVE a "Sonic Universe" yet. 

 

I'm really bummed about the end of Archie, but pretty keen to see how IDW handles this because they have a good hit rate lately.

Well, they're at least following the Pat Lee protocol in terms of new work going forward, but if they can legally reprint his old stuff and make money off of it, they'll probably do it.

Have Ian Flynn start the new series, same talent but new direction without the baggage. Then after a few years let other writers build upon that foundation. Eventually Ian gets to do a miniseries wrapping up the storyline from Archie in about 12 issues.
Woooo!

Except reprints of the pre-Flynn stuff is why Archie got into the Fulop lawsuit in the first place...

Hence the 'legal' part, IDW went straight to reprinting every Marvel Transformers story they could without Death's Head, Circuit Breaker, or Spider-Man. I never read any Sonic comics, there's no early Penders stuff that involves no legally contested characters?

I mean. I guess there might be one or two issues, but none of what people actually care about Penders' run for. He got the OCs in early and en masse.
