Archie Sonic Comic Megathread
Posted 28 June 2012 - 02:59 AM
238's main story was just...passable. I just didn't care about anything that happened in it. I still kind of like the clothing-centric culture concept, but apart from that nothing drew my attention.
The backup story was far better, though.

Speak of the devil, just after I was wondering what happened to Mighty, well, this will do it. This Chaotix centered arc will center around the Sega Chaotix trying to find Mighty and Ray apparently. Also I think we have a definite pattern here. Typically these arcs seem to go Sega centric, then Archie centric, then back again (I guess the Robontik one breaks that chain, but that arc was pretty heavily Archie based, what with the whole "Find Sinvley" and grandmaster dark egg legion stuff going on. Archie Robotnik is an entirely different beast than Sega Robotnik anyway.)

"All for One" is still months away, but Archie will have more details to share on the new storyline during San Diego Comic-Con next week.
About time the Chaotix got a solo arc. Haven't had one since the middle of the Knuckles series.
Also, #46? I guess that means #45 will be a standalone issue. Interesting. Also, the set ends just before #50.
(Make sure to change that dash after "son" to two dashes. Retro wordfilters two dashes to one long one for some reason.)
EDIT: Preview pages for #238 are up.

As you can see, Metal Sonic 2.5 has that ridiculous mouth on him, but this was entirely intentional. Nice touch Evan Stanely

As for Penders' stuff, unfortunately it is all still canon, yet beyond the 30 years later arc it's rarely important. Honestly Flynn did a good job of cutting out most of the crap, eliminating a lot of it in the Enerjak arc and then proceeding to give the Dark Legion an actual purpose in life as being Eggman's cronies (and then expanding on them by adding more then just Echindas). I think Sonic's eye transformation is still canon, however it was not a missile, rather it was the reaction Sonic had to going super fucking fast with a Super Emerald strapped to his back. Eventually he changed... and then about 20 issues later the rest of them did as well, "just because" (only characters to have explanations for the changes were Sonic, Amy, and Eggman. The rest just changed)

I want to know if that was a flub or if Penders work is still canon to Flynn's work.
...What missile? The way Sonic got the green eyes in the comic, as stupid as it was, is still canon, but I don't remember there being a missile. Also, it wasn't Penders. That was Bollers. People tend to mix the two up a lot for whatever reason, even though Karl wrote a lot more of the main book than Penders ever did. Honestly, a lot of the stupid stuff in the comics that gets complained about was Karl.
