    SONIC BOOM VOL. 2: BOOM SHAKA-LAKA (TR)
    Brace yourself for the SONIC BOOM! The hit multimedia Sonic experience comes to you in the action-packed, laugh-a-minute comic book series! Sonic and his friends Tails, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks find themselves caught up in more zany adventures! Dr. Eggman asks the question: “Where does a one ton, fearsome gorilla sit?” The answer: “Wherever he politely asks to!”—wait, what?! Dr. Eggman has a problem-how can he betray the trust of the villagers when they don’t trust him to begin with? The mad mechanic pulls out all the stops to woo the weary would-be victims, but he gets more than he counted for when Sonic and his pals decide to become his
    staff! Then it’s off to the races as Dr. Eggman goads Sonic into competing in a go-kart race! Sonic puts the pedal to the metal-because if he put his feet to the track, he’d win without question! But there’s no way Dr. Eggman will run a clean race! This volume collects SONIC BOOM #5-7 and #11.

    By the way, if any of you have e-mailed Paul (chief) during the outage, when FUS was down completely, the e-mail may have been lost. Maybe not. So if you sent in anything, go ahead and send it again just to be sure, OK?

    The forum’s finally back up. We also upgraded IP.Board in the process, so things might be extra wonky for the moment. But it should be usable, at least.

    View CommentsWe’re back

    June 12th, 2015 by

    We finally got the server wiped and everything reinstalled. That took a lot longer than I thought it would because it turned out wiping the server meant filing a support ticket with our webhost, then waiting, and waiting, and waiting for them to get around to it. But that’s done and we’re mostly back now.

    The forum is still down at the moment, but most of the rest of the site, including Sea3on, should be available now. A few things may be missing or not acting quite right, so bear with us as we get things up and running…

    View CommentsFUS has been hacked

    June 8th, 2015 by

    I have some grave news, amigos.

    On May 30th, FUS was hacked by a spammer. We still don’t know for 100% certain how they got in, but I’m 99% certain they got in through a WordPress exploit, since our WordPress was rather out of date. The main thing they did, possibly the only thing, was put up a bunch of spam pages and maybe send out spam e-mails.

    But there is also a chance they got ahold of the forum database, including the password table. The passwords are encrypted (or more accurately “hashed”), which means they cannot just read your password, but they might be able to decode some of them. If you reused your FUS password anywhere else, such as for an e-mail account, we highly recommend changing those passwords just to be safe. Also, though we think the chance is tiny, FUS may still be compromised for the moment. Now, the chance they got or will get your password is very small, but it’s not impossible.

    We think we have patched up the security holes, but the nature of security is one can never be too sure. So what we’re going to do is torch the site and run. *ahem* I mean, we’re going to make a big backup of everything, wipe the server, and then put everything back in as secure a manner as possible. That means that, within a day or two, FUS is going to be down for probably a few hours. We won’t lose anything; when we’re back up, everything will still be there and, we hope, it will look as though nothing had ever happened.

    We deeply apologize for the inconvenience. Heck, it’s a hassle for us too! But bear with us and everything should be fine within a couple of days, OK?

    View CommentsWorlds Unite “Battle Books”

    March 18th, 2015 by

    First Of Two Releases In June
    The Worlds Unite crossover continues to get more complicated with the latest announcement from Archie Comics.

    A Worlds Unite spinoffs called Battle Books will be releasing during the crossover, the first of which will release in June. Mega Man: Worlds Unite Battles #1 and Sonic: Worlds Unite Battles #1 are the first installments and will serve to help with the vast roster of characters that are involved as an interview with Assistant Editor Vincent Lovallo explained. Characters may disappear for a bit during the main plot and the Battle Books will pick up on where they went:

    What’s the biggest difference between the Mega Man and Sonic Battle Books and what’s going on in the main title?

    The battle books are connected to the main “Worlds Unite” storyline, but tell the story from a completely different perspective. During the story, we tend to follow the adventure through a select few characters. The battle books allow us to hone in on the action that other major characters are experiencing. Basically, if a character runs off panel in one issue and doesn’t return for another issue or two, the battle book gives us the opportunity to follow that character and see what he/she was doing that whole time. There are little adventures happening all over the place and the battle books allow us to give characters that otherwise wouldn’t get much screen time the recognition they deserve.

    Lovallo further elaborated later on:

    Obviously Worlds Unite Battles is kind of the ideal place to try this out. Was it a case where the Battle Books were already a thing you guys were thinking about and this was just a good time to try it, or did it come as a result of thinking about Worlds Unite and what that could be?

    It was more of a result of “Worlds Unite” than anything else. There are so many heroes and villains duking it out in this crossover, the main books can hardly contain it! The Battle Books are the best solution to make sure that we can include the characters that fans want to see. Especially with the inclusion of the other Sega and Capcom properties in the main books, like Street Fighter and Skies of Arcadia, this was the perfect time to try this out and expand on the stories.
    The text solicitation and cover art for Mega Man: Worlds Unite Battles #1 were released as well:
