What comic book publisher will go bankrupt in the future? My money on image comics. Walking dead keeping them alive. No one want to make games or movies based on image books unless it’s walking dead. IDW could go under. Only Hasbro I.P they haven’t driven away fans yet is My little pony. So far. If IDW fucks up the sonic comics. They are done for.
Publishers going bankrupt
Image is a publisher, not an IP farm. They don't own The Walking Dead or any of the properties they publish.
This. All Image does is publish and distribute. They don't even pay for advertising, leaving that to the creators.
Actually, most alternative publishers are like this as well. Marvel, Archie, and DC are outliers in a sea of independent publishing houses.
IDW could go under.
Actually, IDW is hiring right now for full time Editors, Marketers, Financers and Operators. That's a sign of growth, not desperation.
How long has it been since Dark Horse published any of their "Comics' Greatest World" line, like Barb Wire?
Economy is on the rise in general. Those tax cuts from Trump really made a world of difference for damned near every business. Might help IDW, might mean they are making one last push to level out or die off with the rest of comics.
Two years. Dark Horse was publishing a Barb Wire series in 2016.
This entire shitty, stilted OP
Go back to phoneposting on cuckchan
The only things I've read from them were the Godzilla stuff.
Wasn't there a movie of this in the 90's? Not knowing anything else about it, I'm just going to assume she was girl Duke Nukem.
Breddy much. Pamela Anderson riding around on a Triumph Thunderbird, shootan a Deagle Brand Deagle. The Wonder Twins come out to play in the special edition.
Also Jango Fett.
My dad took me to see that for my birthday when it came out. Good times.
If IDW fucks up the sonic comics. They are done for.
Look, I want IDW to go under for what they did to Mars Attacks, but you're just delusional if you think bad Sonic comics will kill them. Archie Comics kept their series going for decades despite being complete trash and Sega is likely to oversee everything IDW does with the IP because of that.
Wasn't this the one that was a ripoff of Casablanca?
IDW is 95% licensed IPs. They have Star Trek, Star Wars, Back To The Future, Duck Tales, Ghostbusters, and the entirety of Hasbro, just to name a few. That's not even covering their archival comic strip collections or artist edition books, which they have a ton of.
There's no way fucking up Sonic will put a dent in IDW
IDW's held up by licensed stuff from different companies anyway, and they have imprints to diversify their output (Top Shelf, EuroComics,The Library of American Comics, etc). Image is less of a publisher and more of a skeleton crew that accepts and publishes whatever they can sell. Their own "imprints" (Kirkman's Skybound, Top Cow, Shadowline, McFarlane) might as well be mini-publishers since they do most of the real work for the titles under them.
Apparently there are some rumors about Avatar Press going under, considering there's no much on their plate besides another Uber series and an imprint (Boundless) that publishes comics with porn variant covers.
I hate IDW more than I hate any other comic book company, including Marvel. They made Transformers into fags, somehow made Rom even more boring than Marvel did, and they fucking nigged Leoric. Fuck them. I won't even pirate their social justice bullshit, anymore.
Rob got kicked out of Image for stealing talent and money for his group, Maximum Press.
I thought Mingola normally worked with Darkhorse regarding Hellboy?
He probably just licensed out his art to IDW for an Artist Edition (essentially a hardcover of original comic art published at their original size) since they have experience publishing those kinds of books, unlike Dark Horse.
he honestly looks more like a heavily tanned white Nordic viking or he has that muddled skin tone used in 40k rather than full on African. the nose is definitely European, and Vikings had dreadlocks long before the hairstyle got co-opted by blacks. HELL, his casual wear and full armor are reminiscent of fucking Nordic and viking wear of the middle ages than anything found in bum-fuck Africa.
you're sperging out over a tan white dude, and a fucking Nord at that. pic related.
also here's the finalized coloration for the comic you're sperging out over, that looks pretty white to me.
looks white to me
One of the worst side effects of all this pc bs is becoming oversensitive to it. Deal with enough thinly veiled 'fuck the west' ideology and you start reacting to the mildest stuff.
I mean, it only makes sense. If you were to climb into bed a few dozen times only to be surprised by a deadly cobra you'd start meticulous checking for them every night and freak out if you saw anything that looked like one. I miss not caring about skin color though. I grew up with Family Matters and Fresh Prince with Black Lightning as my favorite superhero, now because of the identity politics I'm wary of pretty much anything that isn't status quo or white and I don't like that feeling.
the man's fucking brown as hell
looks white to me
You need your eyes checked.
Only Hasbro I.P they haven’t driven away fans yet is My little pony
One of the hottest topics in the fandumb for a while has been the horrible quality of the comics. Sales have been declining extremely rapidly, constantly hitting all-time lows. Write that off.
obviously you haven't been to the beach much user. tanned white dudes and chicks all over the goddamn place.
Didn't IDW just get the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog?
that artist's art isnt terrible.
It's just not fit for the MLP aesthetic.
Didn't IDW just get the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog?
Yes. IDW hired a artist who openly racist against whites people and called for political violence against conservatives and Christians.
TCG vs American comic books
Which industry more self-destructive and condescending to it’s consumers?
He not kidding.
You think hasbro ordering the firing of the cunt at IDW for making fun of 9/11 victims was a big shitstorm. Wait until sonic fans find out sonic being turned into anti-white or transgender propaganda. Not even kidding.
Probably comics. People still buy card games in large numbers.
sonic being turned into anti-white or transgender propaganda. Not even kidding.
Last time anyone tried that, sega got assmad so hard entire comic team got replaced.
IDW ran by morons that greenlite trans transformers.
Pencilers: Adam Bryce Thomas, Evan Stanley, Jamal Peppers, Jennifer Hernandez, Jonathan Gray, Kieran Gates, Nathalie Fourdraine, Tracy Yardley, Tyson Hesse
ALL OF THEM!
Pic on the left is what the comics used to look like
Pic on the right is a typical Fosgitt page
Fosgitt looks like he's more inclined to draw a "funny animals" style comic like those oldschool sunday morning comics.
The art style isnt bad.
It's just not for MLP. It's like having an artist who does art for 3rd person shooters and does a gritty art style. not bad for what it's good for.
He's just a bad fit. He's not amazing either, but it isnt a good fit for MLP. Where the first page fits MLP a lot better based on the Show's aesthetic.
It would be akin to drawing sonic with regular eyes because the artist prefers that, despite what the official design calls for.
Also, he sure doesn't know how to do backgrounds.
However, I do agree, the original pages are far better. He shouldn't be doing this comic.
If they turn this Sonic Comic into a SJW feast: This would be the most breaking lore Sonic Comic ever. Sonic was always a fuck you PC character in every medium he is in and Eggman is literally a SJW he is fighting always.
I thought Eggman was just Sonic's best Frienemy.
He can be right on many subjects except evilness.
Please tell me that third image is a shopjob.
Either too young or too old to have played Sonic Heroes
I can't decide which is worse.
It's been four days since IDW's CCO and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall quit
Not a fucking word about it
You fags are more pathetic than I thought.
We… wuz vikings?
Its been a long time since I played Heroes. Also little brother lost the manual.
To think its been there earlier than I realized.
MFW this wasn't a shopjob.
In Japan it said he considers himself a ladies' man
My dear Sonic, if I knew you were coming I would have prepared you some porkchops.
Mistranslation or just trying to be more PC?
Considering the era, mistranslation seems likely
Didn’t the first run of MLP comics had literally sext fan service?
those fake runes
Is he the guy who turns a blindeye to IDW writers and artists tweeting death threats?
Post it. For… research purposes.
Actually it's rather fitting.
they basically describe him as a neckbeard feminist.
no wonder hes so full of impotent rage
You forgot to mention a new Crossed+100 miniseries, and Boundless is a love letter to 90's Avatar (which published nothing more than riding the bad girl trend). That another Uber series was funded using Kickstarter, same case with the now-heavily delayed Cinema Purgatorio.
Quit? Thought he got fired for pissing off Hasbro and IDW had to save face or Hasbro pull the plug on their license.
I am slowly losing track with all the shakeups in smaller publishers. Not long ago EiC from Valiant was ousted, and before that there was also something going on in Boom or Dynamite.
a love letter to
This phrase needs to die.
Marvel, once normies are tired of their shit movies.
That’s a rumor so far. We will find out in April if hasbro finally pulled the plug
But Yardley has already worked on the Sonic comics for years.
they deserve it for what they did to Transformers
