Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

I'm really, really hoping that IDW at least do reprint collections of the post-reboot material. Including Mega Drive, please.

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.
