Because they tried hard. But they got caught with budget and don't understand the tropes. I just hope the "ololol Forces sux green eyes" memelords didn't kill this one in the egg

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:14 AM)

Buuuuuut I have to admit I'm really intrigued by what they tried to do with Forces, I don't know if it's a new direction or a low-budget cookie thrown to western fans "so they shut up".

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:13 AM)

But of course they would get anime'd to oblivion.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:12 AM)

He trying hard to push the "meme" direction since 2009, Sonic 4 and the Pontaff writing. IMHO the only way we could get decent FFs is if they get popular among the Japanese crowd and if Sonic became popular with that crowd to begin with.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:10 AM)

It seems like "Mania Sonic" is what Iizuka thinks western Sonic fans want.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 July 2019 - 10:29 PM)

Well, Iisuka-san is getting the chance to make the NiGHTS game he wanted to make for a long time. Might be good for him to do something else for a spell

Or, if we want to go a more direct route, show them all the times that corporate interference in story writing actually made things worse. Examples include many of Hasbro's mess-ups including killing Optimus Prime (the face of the franchise), the mess with Derpy and not knowing what the word "derp" actually meant, and the "Fame and Misfortune" episode debacle.

"Do or Do Not... There is no try."

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Oh no, I totally agree that trying to do something may help a bit. It would show that interest is still there after all these years. Hell, Mighty and Ray made a return.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

Better to try than do nothing.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

He personally may not like them, but if their were some form of collab effort to gather hand written letters, artwork, and products from all over as a yearly effort to get his attention things might move.

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:24 PM)

I would imagine the best way would be to go through Aaron, who is a SatAM fan, but there might not be much he can do

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

And I'm pretty sure he doesn't like the FF

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

The only one that seems friendly to the US fans is Iizuka-san

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 02:32 AM)

It would also mean a great investment to capitalize on a untapped western market of american characters for american fans...that is, if SoJ would ever allow it.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 01:00 AM)

Because the Archie comics kept the SatAM cast current for so many years their are many fans that would be more than willing to pay good money for seeing them in some official capacity. If only their were a way to find out who to talk to and how to reach them.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I been thinking. Who is the most key essential person in Sonic Team who is friendly to US fans? Whoever he is would be the key essential person to find and target to bring attention to our fanbase and that their is a market for it.

@  Wulfsbane : (19 July 2019 - 10:52 PM)

Pat does theater work in LA from time to time. She's mostly retired.

@  Shadow : (19 July 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Would a 4K transfer blu ray be possible to produce?

@  Quickster : (19 July 2019 - 12:20 AM)

Unless we were able to somehow contact Pat Allee.

IDW has partnered with SEGA America to release Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019, an oversize comic featuring the classic video game character and friends.

The annual — which weighs in at 48 pages — features a sprawling crew of creators, including four newcomers to the property. James Kochalka (Johnny Boo), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), Jack Lawrence (Transformers: Lost Light), and Gigi Dutrieux will have their first Sonic work featured in the annual. Ian Flynn, Evan Stanley, Caleb Goellner, Jonathan Gray, Jennifer Hernandez, and Diana Skelly will return from other Sonic issues to contribute to the massive book.

Sonic The Hedgehog Annual 2019 will feature three covers, including one from Sonic franchise icon Yuji Uekawa, best known as the visionary behind the "modern" look of Sonic.

“I am really happy to draw IDW’s original characters altogether with Sonic and his friends, as I had never imagined that I would draw these characters as official artwork,” Uekawa said in a release. “As with many IDW Sonic series fans, I personally love Tangle and Whisper, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their further adventures with Sonic, as well as seeing original characters in future issues!”Uekawa has been with Sonic Team since the late 1990s, serving as the lead behind the game's character designs since 1998's Sonic Adventure.

Other variant artists for the issue include Hernandez and Nathalie Fourdaine.

IDW announced last year, in conjunction with the official Sonic Twitter page, that they would be launching a new series in the wake of Archie Comics' cancellation of a series with the same name. Fast forward to this year and IDW launched their Sonic ongoing series in April from Ian Flynn and a rotating cast of artists.

“It’s been thrilling to be part of IDW’s run-away hit Sonic The Hedgehog," Flynn said in the release. "And I’m super-excited to spend more time with the brand-new fan favorites Tangle and Whisper!”

However....  It doesn't mean the original freedom fighters will be in it. And I don't read the IDW Comics anyway.

 

But if some of you are happy about this, then I don't mind at all ;)

I for one am glad the Freedom Fighters are not appearing, at least for now. They are too overrated.

 

Off-topic: Congrats for 200 posts, FUS News Robot!

 

On-topic: Any clue as to when the annual is coming out? I can't wait to read it!

Evan Stanley is writing the Silver/Blaze one.

 

That one might be the best one of the 5
