Thus overriding any previous dangling plot threads with a blanket answer of "Well, they got captured. Probably died."
Seriously, I don't nerd rage about many things - or at least I try not to - but the fact that anybody could be rooting for this guy makes me want to punch somebody in the throat. He stagnated for years, wrote himself in to a corner more times than I can remember, stretched out story arcs so long even he forgot that they existed, and probably would have killed this comic book if it wasn't for the license attached to it. He certainly doesn't seem to be doing very well outside of Sonic if he has to resort to squelching Archie for more cash on the basis of "copyright infringement".
And somehow, this man developed his own meager, demented fanbase that still post about Sonic comics on his forum to this day even though he hasn't touched the characters in almost five years.
Getting fired is what he deserved. Even he admitted that he overstayed his welcome. But apparently he didn't overstay it enough if he's come back asking for a handout.
Ken Penders can eat a dick.
There is an applause emoticon, but I don't think it's on this board. This will have to suffice.
