IDW Sonic News

We got some news on the Sonic IDW comic. It'll be arriving around Spring 2018. What are your thoughts and hopes Holla Forums? Do you think it'll much more fun to read than Archie Sonic? Will Ken try and sue if they give Knuckles a hat?

Tyson is on cover duty so far but may do an issue eventually.
No word on continuiting Megadrive due to questions on copyright
Ian Flynn is not involved with the IDW relaunch, he feels he's done his time with Sonic and is happy to step back
IDW has full approval to use any character fully owned by Sega. Characters from all Sonic media are open to be used.
Storyline will be the game universe however so no Mobius. This means old characters might show up in surprising new ways
There will be one crossover series at least in 2018 published as a mini-series, probably with another IDW licensed property

Have they even announced the team for this series yet?

That's interesting, but I doubt anything will come out of it. I expect the comic will start off with a few game adaptations, so if any non-game appearances will probably be shoehorned in. I really hope this leads to the every-Sonic-ever crossover I've been waiting for since I was a kid.

Hate to say it. But Holla Forums probably right. IDW will make doctor eggman Donald trump look alike and we will probably see a official sonic mlp crossover less than a year of launch
but will Sally and Nicole still be lesbians?
Realistically yes. If it’s a female character that ididnt directly came from Sega. She will be bi, lesbian, pan or transgender. It fits IDW track record. It’s a miracle they didn’t make rainbow dash a lesbian yet.

Anybody know the live stream UK TIME?

So we learned Ian is back writing and that it's a fresh start again. They dodged every question regarding to Freedom Fighters and other Archie stuff. Kinda a waste of a Q&A, but at least we'll get the first 4 issues in rapid succession.

<I believe this for some reason other than evidence because "muh trump"

You must lead a very sad life.

Flynn is back
Then this should be great

That just means that the freedom fighters either won't be in at all or won't be in during the beginning arcs.

If they can put anti-trump bullshit into G.I. Joe then anything is possible.

crossover series
Please be Transformers. I want to see Eggman creating a new brand of Decepticon combiners to fight Sonic.

It will be either MLP or TNMT.

and?

Sally and Nicole probably won't even exist. IDW has no chance to get the rights to them from Archie and SEGA never liked them so Flynn will most likely have to use only game characters or make new OCs.

Samuel White

Hopefully the lack of OCs means we get a bigger spotlight on the more obscure official characters like Fang the Weasel and Hat on Fire Knuckles.

It’s IDW mate. They gave us transgender transformers.

Archie has the rights to them? I thought sega did since they were characters originally from the tv show.

Michael Hill

SEGA does own the rights to them. They were initially developed by DiC for SatAM. Sally is based on the squirrel animal friend from the American Sonic series bible (in Japan, the character was Ricky the Squirrel. In America, Sally the squirrel)

You could make the argument that the anthropomorphized version of Nicole is Archie's though. Luckily Penders didn't make her.

IDW already shoehorning lesbian ponies in the mlp comic

Cooper Johnson

SEGA keeps a tight leash over their IPs. Archie is just as SJW as IDW, if SEGA didn't control their shit, we would have seen some shit before now

John Lee

IDW will hide shit in the sonic comic. Didn’t the mlp comic had a guy hide kill all men or something in the background? I’m surprised mando gecko was made gay in the TMNT comic yet. But bebop and rockysteady might be a gay couple though

Juan Ramirez

calling it now, Sally and Nicole will be in the background holding hands because "they were always lesbians guys!"

Luke Jenkins

Decepticons fake being under Eggman's control/work for him to get their hands on chaos emeralds.
Eggman adds a mustache to their logo and calls them the Decepteggcons.

But yeah, probably MLP or TMNT. Both are bigger names at this point.

While subtlty with their lot is rare- you can pull off some shit. Like a mudslime writer for Marvel put in numbers referencing verses in their rag. Shit like "never let a non-muslim rule in the nations you invade" or some shit while Kitty Pryde (a jew) is becoming the new leader of the XMen.

But as others have said- Sega is finally doing well with Sonic. They're gonna watch shit like a hawk.

Sonic will come out as a faggot, Amy will come out as a lesbian, tails will become a tranny, and Eggman will be a strawman shitlord that refuses to use their preferred pronouns.

Your mum will come out as a lesbian
