vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Is Sally Acorn going to be in this new comic, right? Without her any Sonic comic is just trash.

 

They've been VERY coy about the SATAM cast.  Technically, they haven't said they WON'T...but they've been very vocal about this being a NEW book with NEW characters.  I think we can safely assume they're gone until proven otherwise.  In the last semi-reboot, Ian said he really had to fight to keep the Freedom Fighters as characters, leading to their redesign.  I honestly don't see him winning that fight a second time in a full-reboot.

 

Then again, I didn't think we'd even get ANY major comics-only characters in the new comic since I thought Sega would've nixed them after all those lawsuits, so what do I know? *shrugs*

 

 

I just heard the news that Sonic was bought up by IDW. I'm a huge Sonic fan (just not active in the news department apparently). I wanted to finish up the Archie comics before the new series started in April, I was at issue 285 but it seems Comixology no longer sells Archie Sonic comics. Anyone where where I can get the old Archie comics at?

 

Well...since Archie lost the license, there probably isn't any LEGAL way online except for tracking down the physical issues.  And good luck with that since Sonic wasn't a BIG seller at most comic shops.  And no one who made the comic can legally get any money or benefit from those back issues being sold anyway...

 

So...no harm in living up to your avatar.  *Yarr*

 

And there's also the Fleetway/Egmont UK Sonic comic if you REALLY want to get caught up.  I just finished that up myself.

I'm going to lay down some real feels for you. I've been reading the Archie Sonic comics since the 90s. Well over 20s years. Sally is like a staple to the Sonic universe to me. If they try to replace Sally with Tangle as the lead female character I'll never recognize her as such. I don't hate her, I'll just think of her as a fan OC or a side character at best. She will have as much relevance as Wave did. I think of Sally as one of the best female characters out there. She never needed fancy gimmicks or super powers to be able to keep up at sonic's level. She was intelligent and cunning. And this was during the 90s when female characters where more of place holders on any adventure team. It would be like if they replaced Tails with a mouse name Ratchet. Sure, Ratchet can be fun and well developed and give a new perspective to the series. But will anyone feel that Ratchet is a more natural replacement to Tails? Probably not.

 

The thing you have to remember is that I am just one fan in an ocean of many. My opinions don't matter and won't hold any sway over the events of the characters. But I will probably will be very bias and overly critical of any replacement character for the early part of the series and will try to convince others to think the same way. So expect my comments to reflect as such.

Your far from the only fan in that wagon Snow, but its just something that was going to happen eventually. SEGA only ever made reference to Sally in Spinball and has never used SAT AMs characters as something of their own despite most likely owning the rights to use them. Its just kind of sad since the comic has been a big factor in the West for keeping the franchise going despite years of mediocre to bad games.

I actually kind of agree with you on that.  The SATAM/Archie cast is "home" for me that nothing else in Sonic can really measure up to.   Not for any shortcomings in other media, but because I grew up with it.  And I kind of took it for granted that it would always kind of be around since it lasted so long.  Antoine and Bunnie's romance, Antoine's character development BECAUSE of that romance, Sally taking over the throne for her magic-Alzheimer's riddled father, Ian's whole pre-Super Genesis Wave run...even the goofy stuff like Titan Tails and Knuckles adventures in godhood...all probably mean more to me since I grew up alongside it.

 

And I DID end up rewatching the original cartoon and...sorta unfortunately...it DOES hold up.  I mean, it's a early 90s cartoon with all the associated animation errors and tropes sure, and it has NOTHING to do with the games outside of Sonic himself.  (And they are over-ing the do of Antoine, zut alors...)  BUT...it also deals with a lot of mature themes like loss, war, and regret.  It's before it's time in a lot of ways.  The second season actually had a handful of season-long arcs that tied together at the end...what other 90's cartoon even TRIED to do something like that?  It's not quite up to stuff like the DCAU or Gargoyles, but I'd probably put it above the X-Men cartoon  (Probably all the Marvel cartoons, to think of it).  I swear, every time Sonic called Tails "BIg Guy" I teared up a little (especially after Sonic the Comic UK).  And Nicole and Sonic bonding was something I didn't remember, but LOVED.  And that theme song is the BEST Sonic's ever gotten.

 

But, to be fair, the comic's in good hands with Ian, despite my nitpicks.  And I don't think Tangle will replace Sally.  Tangle strikes me as more of a sporty brawler from her character design, but we'll see.  And...hopefull, Ian will write Amy in a more toned-down Sonic Boom way than full on stalker that she can otherwise be.  It deserves a chance.  But, if it just doesn't click for you...that's perfectly understandable.

I have no doubts this new series will be good. But I doubt it will have the same emotional depth and weight as the original. The original one was made in a different time that didn't seem to have that much corporate oversight to it.
