I'm back. Hard drive failure.

@  MoKat : (17 August 2017 - 12:56 PM)

*pokes Shoutbox* Is this thing on? :D

@  Shadow : (17 August 2017 - 12:33 PM)

God dammit...my dad rear ended the neighbors vehicle when he was backing out of the driveway. Swung too far out into the road.

@  chief : (13 August 2017 - 06:53 PM)

Yep. Me and my savy internet skills.

@  furrykef : (13 August 2017 - 05:51 PM)

The problem was it wasn't a ban. It was total account deletion -- which meant we didn't even have any contact info.

@  Clocktopus : (13 August 2017 - 03:12 PM)

Geez, I'm already (in)famous. Great

@  Shadow : (12 August 2017 - 08:39 PM)

Good to see you return. Many were worried over your accidental ban.

@  Clocktopus : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Sup all

Clocktopus is now a Fellow FUSer and has all the benefits as such.

@  Sandata : (09 August 2017 - 07:29 PM)

Did he happen to register an e-mail? Like, could you guys send a message that way?

@  Uncle Ben : (08 August 2017 - 07:43 PM)

You would think the head Admin (aka you) would have the ability to undo that. Or at least a "Are you sure you wanna do that" option. Think that's what we have at Scribes.

Just like with Clocktopus...I made him a Fuser..then accidently deleted him when doing something else....And there is no "oops you messed up" option

@  chief : (08 August 2017 - 06:39 PM)

..Especially with websites and me

@  chief : (08 August 2017 - 06:38 PM)

Anything is possible

@  Uncle Ben : (08 August 2017 - 05:30 PM)

Wait, how did you ban yourself chief?

Im now just going to wait and see if Sega and another comic publisher make a deal.     The whole Archie/Penders thing could be a pain here. Because whatever contract was written with him was obviously bad for Sega and Archie.  As we all know.

 

So perhaps Sega may try finding a different publisher?   Or...Just end it completely.   I mean Sega has downsized staff all over.  I know a few people we originally had contacts for 4 years ago were let go shortly after making those contacts.   So...Ehhhh We shall see. 

 

 

Another publisher could end up taking this on...And I really hope so.

I think this is the end for all Archie related comics and characters of Sonic. If a new comic springs up with another company it will most likely be a fresh slate with none of the original characters transitioned over, much of how Fleetway stayed contained in its bubble. Let us not forget how Archie cancelled Megaman and their were no attempts to outsource it to another licensed company.

We can only hope the new company finds it in their hearts to add the Freedom Fighters and SatAM cast...

 

Unfortunately it's not the right time for it, like it was for when the comic originally started. Now the only show that would run close to its starting is Sonic Boom, and that's hardly rife for a lot of drama.

 

One good thing that we can look forward to is no Ken Penders ever again in Sonic. (Though his new Lein-da really gives me nightmares)

Unfortunately they will probably be seen as too much of a risk for most companies to invest a property into.


They say that the safest airline is the one that just had a crash, 'cause you can be damn sure they're not interested in having another one. So I doubt they seem any riskier than before.

I don't think a new publisher will have much say in anything as Sega will definitely outline each and every direction the new comic has to follow. Also Sega has never shown interest in Freedom Fighters and SatAM continuity. They aknowledge the premise is strong as they basically used it for Sonic Forces, but the actual Freedom Fighters are left out. They haven't even tried to include them on some level. There's a custom OC character you can create, but you can't make anyone even remotely resembling Sally, Bunnie or others. Not even with a design of a Sonic Boom extra.

You never know...Sonic Mania was essentially made by fans, so if the fans fight hard enough, the FF could make their return!

Their isn't enough demand to see the characters due to the baggage the comics have put them through.

Sonic Mania didn't require as much resources to make and it tries to be in line with the original trilogy (SK mostly), which is universally praised, so there isn't much risk involved. They just wanted to release more modern-looking stuff, so if Sonic 4 was better received, there wouldn't be Mania.

Freedom Fighters on the other hand are controvesial as they aren't present in main canon. Many people don't know about them, some even hate them, Sally at least. Plus it conflicts with Sega's main somewhat shipping couple, Sonamy. While SatAM has a good reputation and is mostly praised, it also has a lot of baggage after years of comics.

So I don't really see Sega exploring FF any time soon. Maybe after some kind of SatAM reboot, which starts over and reestablishes characters.

Sally was the best Sonic franchise had to offer. I hope to see her again someday.

More likely that this has been planned for a long while now and Sega decided to hold off announcing it till San DIago Comic Con.

Probably Sega had IDW in the background as a back up.

 

Rumor is that Archie wants to finish final arcs + Mega Drive

I would be happy even if it were just one mega (drive) issue just to get all of it done and put away.

I'd want to see Archie publish the last of the issues they completed with Megadrive and start pumping out trade paperbacks, but I don't think they're gonna.

There not going to publish the final issues from 291 to 294 because Archie dropped the ball when it comes to the Sonic The Hedgehog comic. Archie is mostly focused on the Archie franchise and Riverdale for 2017 with the exception of Marvel. I am not too happy with Archie and I have banned anything Archie that is being released this year and beyond.

I'm starting to think that's what the "in talks" part was still about.
