I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

Whoa. I thought those two were Flynn original characters. They were made by Sega?

Edit - that made me think of the official characters that Flynn characterized.

What issue of Sonic Universe was it that the gag comic strip at the end had Marine meeting Bean for the first time and when they touched each other, the world exploded? I want to read it again, haha

No, they debuted in the current book. But of course it's all owned by Sega, so they can do whatever they want with any characters who originate in IDW.

Whoa, the wiki has the Off Panel strip on it, nice! Thanks for finding it!

I miss Sonic Universe. Having Yardley doing art for almost every month was a treat. He missed some issues, I'm sure but I can't recall when. Also, he wrote!

We might get a Universe-style book again if TF Galaxies does well. No idea how any of the current books have been selling, but Galaxies is an indication that IDW can stomach the idea of an ongoing title of that nature.

But I gotta say, my inner 13 year old kinda hurts after the years he would sit and pine for Princess Sally et al to get made more "official" with inclusion in a game. (No. Spinball cameo doesn't count)

I think IDW wants the mini-series to be the "Universe" of their Sonic book.  Like the upcoming mini where we see what Starline's getting up to after the Metal Virus:

 

https://www.previews...talog/JUL200524

 

...Even if we do only seem to get one of these mini-series a year.  I'm guessing IDW is still testing the market a little.

Well...it might not be official, but there is a series of romhacks that puts Sally in Sonic 1-3

 

And also, Bunnie in Sonic 1-2:

 

That might be of some interest.

Oh, sure, but Galaxies at least shows that they're open to the idea of doing that kind of sibling book, which was a surprise to me after the Spotlights broke their heart all those years ago. 

 

I was not aware they had announced another Sonic mini though. At first glance I would assume that actual separate minseries are, sales-wise, a smarter move than an ongoing book with unpredictable contents. But I think you can also reach a point where people have spinoff fatigue and seeing yet another mini solicited starts to make them sick. SHRUG

Oh I see. Starline gets a mini too so it is like Sonic Universe. Pretty cool since Starline is my fave new character from the new series

(Flynn must feel sad about losing the Eggman's Dozen set. Those were a great bunch of characters for bad guys.)

That Bunnies hack is impressive! She doesn't have an upward attack (I think) and I'm not sure if she can stomp on badniks but she has an extending fist, a downward punch and a hover like Tails. Very awesome.

As much crap I've given the story for going way too long, and being very depressing, for a book that has only been 2+ years old...

 

I'll not be pleased if the conclusion is 'Sending Silver back in time via the Chaos Emeralds to stop it before it starts'.

Well, sorta.

 

http://majorspoilers...idw-publishing/

 

Evan Stanley's taking over the main book with #33, and Ian's writing that Bad Guy mini-series.  They're promoting this like it's a major thing, so...it might be permanent?  

 

However, it looks like Ian said he'll be back on the Sonic book in 2021 for "a bit" and that there are "other plans", so...yeah, they're doing something.

 

https://twitter.com/...133369524027393

 

More likely, and this is just me speculating, Evan will likely write a 12-issue arc or something, then Ian will come back for some big event that they can promote as Ian's big return to the comic.  Maybe a crossover with Classic Sonic?  That whole "Warp Topaz can destabilize reality" subplot has to go somewhere, after all.  

 

Ian's let others write the main book for an arc or two before in the Archie days, but they've never promoted it like it was a major change-up before.  So...I don't know, it might be a major change or it might just be a stunt.  It's hard to say right now.  Maybe we're just getting a Classic Sonic book in 2021? *shrugs* I don't know.

I don't think anybody else wrote the main Sonic title when Ian was there. There were the back ups though. But I could be wrong.

It was in Sonic Universe that Yardley wrote issues. He should write stuff again, hehe

I kinda want my money back after this one. It was just bleak as heck considering what we know happened to the majority of these characters. About the only good one was Starline finding Eggman in his secret hideaway.
