Things.......well yes too long of a title so yea. The rest of the title is things.
YEahh just say it. SONIC COMICS. Your head wants to explode. The current arch does have it's fans i guess and I respect them for their opinions. But I find that more people don't like....Don't like is an understatement. I have seen complete utter and con-tempting dispisement of the writer, the characters, the actions, the plot, and the list goes on! Personally. I HATE this comic. THe utter impenitence of this comic is not present in ANY OTHER Comic book i have ever read. I am serious. I can take the worst comic book I read and Sonic comics just multiplies the wrong! It's so unbelievably slopy that I am amazed. I swear it needs an award for the total consistent awful job being done by the writer, and sometimes the artists too! It's amazing actually. And I am goin to list what I think is the top 10 WORST elements of the comics of recent play. And even some of the major recurring problems
If you don't like my opinion, please keep in mind I don't want to offend anyone who supports Ian. I hate him, but not his supporters. Calm down and hear me out please.
The Universe of characters appearing ALL who which lack character development and are mary sues themselves.
As we all know there are alot of characters in the Sonic games. But to be fair they only appear when needed, or when they do appear they are down played in the emotional and plot driving amount of the game. The Comics has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more characters in the comic to pay attention to. And to top it all off, the comic constantly puts focus on those characters who really should be more than Supportive characters or background characters. And when they are suppose to be major secondary characters, they come off as an inconnvience or a major help or threat. You would be surprised how rare the latter is in these
comics. Also their mood swings and actions seem really really really forced plot wise. It's all a convenience to make the "tension" seem more...tensiony. The characters are basically used to have emotional break downs or be boring and superfluous. Like the Nostalgia critic said in this Spider man 2 review: " If you're going to go through the trouble and have all these characters...ACTUALLY DEVELOP THEM"
The abundance of phoned in couples.
Fan fictions had more developed couples than the un interesting, cliche and kinda random pairings in this comic. And there are MILLIONS of them.
Antione's kidXVictor's kid
And the list goes on. And I am not going to talk about furries. Here's the thing. SONIC IS A FURRY. If you pair him with a girl of any kind, then it's a furry. So I'm not complaining about that. What I am complaining about is that these couples are far from extinct. WAY Too many of these exist. You know how I said that alot of these characters are Mary sues? Well for couples it's a different story. They aren't mary sues. No no. They're Tokens. The stereotypical cliched love interest shoe horned in to the story for no point or lead in. From what I have seen, if he's a character then he has a couple. I wouldn't mind so much if, again, the characters were interesting and fun, not boring, superfluous, cliche, pretentious, and idiotic.
Now you might be wondering, " THEN WHAT MAKES TAISMO SO INTERESTING?? HU??"
Here's why it's an interesting couple. We all know why we like Tails so I'll only speak about Cosmo.
Cosmo is interesting cause she is kind of a mix between Cinderella, a messiah, and a little child.
She may act like she has lost everything, which she has, she does cry alot, she does have her moment where she is very depressed. BUT much like Cinderella, she can still find happiness in her life. She can still play with her friends and laugh, and help heal people so they can feel better. She also sacrifices herself in the love of keeping her friends safe and their universe safe.
Sure she is gloomy at points, but she has a child like presence and a huge heart and a good will to help people and to care for the others she loves.
Now what would this type of character type be in the Comic?
I dunno his/her mood would change just for the convenience of the plot, even going as far as changing her/his character traits from all I have mentioned into a sickened and heartless person who would do horrible acts out of her/his realm of personality. But we will get into that later. :/
the abuse to the SATam Characters
Bunny has suddenly been cured of an incurable attachment to her after many years of being a cyborg, Antione is in a comma that he did not deserve, and Sally is robotized after an arch was spent in the pointless effort to save her from being shot.
I mean come on Ian. Enough with the shock value! How about some character and story development, or even some GOOD planning for once??
These characters don't deserve this after SOOOOOO MUCH Trouble was spent (four months exactly) to have the world reset to save a character from death only to have her into a fate even more awful than death!
This is just making me think, "if sally gotten shot NONE of this would have happened". BUT THAT'S MY POINT SHE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SHOT IN THE FIRST PLACE IF YOU WANTED TO CAUSE SO MUCH POINTLESSLY STUPID SHOCK MOMENTS !
Besides, at least SATam does something better than Ian can never do.........be engaging.
the fact that the Comic is turning dark...........and I mean THIS DARK
Death, Genocide, Poison, Attempted murder by a hero, Tyranny, Politics, Paradoxes, city destruction, destroying worlds, emotional break downs, and a heavily negative and overwhelming atmosphere......................Cause THIS is what we want from Sonic the hedgehog right?
Why don't we put Mario in Doom
Or Mix Lord of the rings with Donkey Kong
Or how about 2001 a space odyssey with bubble bobble
Or Mortal kombat with the care bears fighting along with them?
And possible the BEST Idea
a Combination of Kirby and Sin city?
Listen. I know that the comic has it's dark moments......i say dark very loosely.....and also in the games too. But not THIS much. This is turning into and X-men clone...a really bad X-men clone.
Have we forgotten what Sonic is all about?
There is a difference in the games where it can be dark and epic.
It's mostly supposed to be epic and large but if dark, not so overwhelmingly dark. This comic just takes it the wrong way.
And if it took it the RIGHT WAY it still suffers from being poorly executed and just comes out as Stupid.
The video game addaptations
........no comment. There is no attempt to fit them in the continuity.
They instead are just re drawings of the first cut scene of the game. :/ even the Genesis arch is like this. But we will get to THAT latter.
The Excuses that mandates are preventing you to expand on character personality for the Game characters.
I can do that. And I have many times in my pics!
I can build around the little tiny space given for personality that SEGA gives. And I have seen MILLIONS OF FAN DO THE SAME!
So Ian, you smug nincompoop, why can't you??
SPEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAKING of SEGA.
The fact that SEGA doesn't step in, slap Ian and the others in the face and say " HEY! KNOCK IT OFF!!"
The difference of this Comic and SonicX is that Sonic X is created by Sega it's self. Archie is only given a licence and Sega has no input cause they Don't give a shit.That is until another nincompoop writer screams I OWN YOUR PROPERTY! then they get involved and start to question their licence. :/
Hey Sega if you wan't them to have their counterparts like your originals and change when you want only,then why don't you work WITH them? It just gives them more opportunities to hire an incompetent writer to write AROUND the mandates you gave them and then Slap your " Seal of Quality" label indicated by your Logo in the top corner??
Putting your logo means that you really want to put this out cause it's so good.
Here's a tip. GET into the action and stop the madness. Look at Ken! Another writer could be doing this in the future! Or better yet, CUT OFF THE LICENCE. If the creators of your products are not willing to get their thumbs out of their arrogant asses and write good stories to represent your characters and products then CUT THEM OFF!!!.
The Genesis arch.
Hey Sonic fans! Wanna finally see us represent your childhood memories and reboot our Comic?
HERE IT IS!
At first I LOVED the genesis comics. It was almost the perfect representation of my treasured childhood memories with my Genesis. Then sally and rotor and ant came in and it started to get a bit iffy real fast. But Is till loved it as a reboot..............then we go back to the regular arch. I was like awww ok fine at least you saved sall right?
Then mecha sally...................................
Ok lets calculate this.
4 months and one issue cost 2.99 and add that together and then add 730.484398 (hours in a month ) And multiply it by 4 then we have:
11 dollars and 96 cents, and 2 921.93759 hours wasted on Money, development time, consumer time, and just time in general.
GOD DAMN IT
a tie between: Sonic issue 235's plot hole and happenings, and the fact that there barely is a hint of a resolution to any arch.
This issue is one of the top WORST Comics in exisitance for video game themed comics. Sonic has turned into a mindless asshole who isnt the fun loving good ol guy we love. Nope hes always angry and hurts others for the sake of Sally. Even his ALLIES!!!
Bunny left Ant durrning his comma..............look at my pic for a comment about bunny abruptly leaving Antoine.........let me put it in a few words.
And the main problem is the plot hole.
I mean SILVER (the scrappy doo of the Sonic universe) now makes an appearance and could of just went back in time and Saved sally from being robotizied.................................nope. Just to keep that pretentious plot moving along.
And everyone would know that after the climax of each arch, a new problem already appears and the characters never take a break.
I have to ask..why......if you will never end comic, why do you have a climax?
Answer me that?
And besides maybe taking a break would give an advantage of developing the Simpsons ensemble of characters you have created.
Ever thought that ya numb nuts??
Phew..............this whole thing is wearing me down..but my passion for good quality work is still going strong............hu..................hu.........................finally....number 1...is................
The Overtones, and manipulation of the characters that make them seem like selfish, uncaring, idiotic, pretentious, annoying,
stupid, boring, bland and HEARTLESS!!!
Ian feels that just for the convenience of his story he can make characters go out of what they would actually do.
This is not only present in the current arch but is in many other ones as well. Most notably the SONIC vs TAILS Arch in which Sonic out loud negatively judges and insults Tails parents RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM AND TAILS!
And this throws Tails into a sobbing fit!
Ian do you realize hoe much this hurts?? TO see our child hood icon acting like this???
And remember in 235 when he SPINDAHSES SILVER, DRAGS HIM ACROSS THE CITY, SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLAMS HIM INTO THEPOLE OF A HOSPITAL BED AND THEN SAYS TO GO AWAY WITHOUT APPOLOGISNG
Im sorry but hes dead.
Sonic has died!
Admit it. Sonic has been KILLED in these comics and it makes me cry, vomit, and feel sick to my gutt just thinking about it!
And this is in EVERYONE OF HIS ARCHS! I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE IT!!!!
I'M ACTUALLY CRYING RIGHT NOW! I'M SORRY BUT I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT SONIC! HE'S MY CHILDHOOD HERO AND THIS JUST FEELS LIKE TAKING HIM AND BUTFUCKING HIS BRAIN UNTILL IT EXPLODES INTO THIS MONSTOCITY WE HAVE NOW!!!
This is no joke. These comics are so bad they are really really really starting to hurt me...badly.
As if my childhood and innerchild and heart is getting stabbed with a weapon that gust by pointing at a heart it bleeds it to death.
I haven't been this emotionally scarred by a Sonic product Since the death of Cosmo. And I gave up on the comics completely.
I hate it to the dephs of hel and to all the sins. I hope it dies DIES DIES DIES DIES DIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.........s-sorry...............t-there's my top 10 list..............................i wont upload a pic for today or night......i just need to calm down.................sorry..
please dont hate me. And if you support ian...please let me know why. I dont hate you and you can ahve your opions.......night.................
