I meen why bother even advertising an advertisement? Even the old Hawaiian Punch Comic ads were more of a comic than the post SA2 adaptions.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> 1. It's a Sonic comic, it MUST do publicity. 2. Ian never recieves enough info to make a hastily shit adaption like the Sonic Adventure one. 3. By just doing a non-canon small story, he is then free to adapt the games as he wants and on his rythm. I mean, it's not fair to compare adapting Sonic Colours, for an example (a game that had just come out and would have to be adapted to the Archie canon, plus completely change the plans they had) with adapting Tails Adventure (a game released around 15 years ago.) Greg, I advise you to look past your stomach. 90% of the fanbase is reacting very positively to Ben Bates. As for Ian's quality of writing, he has had many blunders, true. While the Iron Dominion arc does read better if you just read the whole thing (SU included) together, at the time, wuith it coming out once a month, it really promised too much and gave too little. However, he has moved past the DARK ANGSTY comics of Penders into something more adventureous and light-hearted, that can still be serious when necessary. Which being a comic with a blue hedgehog, is actually a good idea. Obviously, to each his own. But to be honest, thse comics recently have had a much better eception than you guys are making it look. As for Scourge, basically, he's Evil Sonic, from an EVIL Mobius. At the time, it was just for some simple stories. But then, either Penders or Bollers (can't remember) had the idiotic idea of actually making Anti Mobius something serious and interwoven with the story, which is... stupid. Ian solved that by doing a clever change of heart for the character- they're recolors fighthing to be recognized as original characters in their own right. Plus Finitevus.
