Back in the old Archie Sonic days, we explored the multiverse and saw parodies of various media using the Sonic characters. If you were to make or see a spin-off comic based on one of these parody zones, which one would it be, and who would some of the characters be?
when reading old Archie Sonic I always saw Scourge the Hedgehog as the measuring stick to compare Sonics worst behaviors to, such as his ego and violence. Around the middle of the Mecha Sally arc Sonic has dragged Silver by the quills, attempted to guilt Knuckles into giving him his warp ring, and even threatened the Babylon Rouges by saying, “If I wasn’t the good guy, I would make stuffing out of you turkeys and make sure you couldn’t leave this pile of junk before it comes crashing down. If my friends aren’t ok, then you’d better hope you can run faster than me.” (Sonic Universe 37)
All of this is to ask, when Sonic is in freedom HQ and recalls Scourge telling him, “all it would take is one bad day and you’d be just like me,” was this to imply that Sonic was convinced he was going to become just like Scourge? Or was this Sonic contemplating wether all these horrible things that had been happening to him, as well as his more recent spiteful behavior, could be leading to his “one bad day?”
I was wondering: do you have one particular game that you managed to finish, or an achievement you managed to complete that you could call your proudest gaming accomplishment? Something that you can look back on and proudly say, “Yeah. I did that”?
For example, mine is the 7 Day Survivor achievement in the original Dead Rising. To achieve that one you have to last for 7 in-game days (14 hours in real time, not counting loading times) in infinite mode, where your health is constantly dropping, there are no save points, and the supplies are limited and don’t respawn. It took me several tries to get that one, but it was incredibly satisfying for me when the achievement unlocked.
how did Eggboss Maw’s power work? What was the plan for that?
Ever since Creams map showed up in the comics a lot of people have been wondering whats the deal with Central City. Most thought it was in the human world but apparently its in Sonics World in the comic?
Will we see Super Sonic in season 2 and Will we get a Shadow centered story anytime soon?
Hey since IDW has Sonic ln a clause along with A Inter-company Union with Marvel, do you foresee The Sonic Multiverse Clashing With Marvel’s like a “Megaverse Crossover” anytime soon?
Ian. Do you have the story mapped out for the Sonic the Hedgehog comics? Do you have the story planned out similar to the Mega Man comics where you plan ahead, or do you get the ideas as you go? Maybe a combination of both?
What do you guys like to put on your sandwich?
