Me either. I'm not entirely positive that a new focus on mostly Modern Sonic's world is going to help things out, especially for the FF and former fans of the Archie series. I honestly think the best way for the fandom to stay alive and preserve the characters is for them to work on their own stories and art. I have noticed that the majority of times a big corporation takes control of an artists' work, the quality of the work goes downhill. With Sega in control of the content of the comics (and with their own position with Sonic), I am not seeing good hopes with this comic series. It's possible we may have some good storylines from the new comic, but I fear in doing so we will also lose the legacy of previous Archie and Satam characters.
Maybe that's the intent because to SEGA, SatAM and Archie Sonic are outdated and conflicts with Modern Sonic. So, they stop renewing the license to Archie Comics and gave it to a new comic publisher, IDW, to enforce their Sonic easily. Unless they allow IDW some creative freedom, what's the point of reading the comic when you can play the games with similar or the same experience.
