Who want to bet that Tangled have a super cool but cheesy line like "It's time to tangle" or "Trust me, you don't want to Tangler with me"

Don't count on it, bud. :( From what we know, Archie characters are most likely not coming back to the comic in any shape or form. Ian himself confirmed this, but personally I still like to believe there is a possibillity
Here's to hoping these new characters can fill the void, if nothing else.

Then I will not be interested in seeing this new series. That is completely and utterly STUPID. It is the reason what made the comics so unique.

That's not the point, dude. First of all, I know, DiC created them, but they're gone now, and SEGA holds the right to these characters. Sally - while not being invented during AC's run, was only seen in the comics (that were published by archie), so no, techincally, she is a SEGA property. But she was only employed/used in the comics. It's not too big of a leap to call her an "archie character", because she isn't present in any of SEGA's other mediums. 
Secondly, it doesn't change anything whether Sally is a SEGA or archie character; the fact remains that IDW/SEGA doesn't wish to see them being used again. 
Sally Acorn died with archie comics. I dunno about you, but it seems kinda nitpicky to point that out.

She and the others are owned by Sega. But its up to Sega if they want to bring them back, which is unlikely given the past attitude towards them.

No, Sally and the Freedom Fighters are 100% owned by Archie lmao. 

Another question, just because there is no Sally in there are you not gonna enjoy this series? Oh god I found another Sally fanbrat

I was joking/over exaggerating when I said that dude lmao. Plus, didn't I already say I moved on from this conversation?


No need to stir drama my friend this thing was done ages ago. When I said that I meant he was being a little bratty about how the Freedom Fighters aren't in the comic. The reason why I thought he was acting spoiled is because the Sonic Comic ran for about.. 24 years straight I think?

Um... Can I ask for proof in Archie's claim to Sally and her companions? Last I recalled from Ian Flynn, who is the head writer for the new comics, described them as "Too soon to call" meaning neither a confirmation or otherwise. I'm just asking so the record is set straight. Also, don't be rude because someone has an opinion. For some the Freedom Fighters are as iconic as Sonic himself and their absence is a blow to their loyalty to the franchise. Now their possible lack of presence may not ruin the comic for most but who ever is going to take their place has a lot to live up to.

SEGA owns the RIGHTS to Sally and the Freedom Fighters lol they don't 100% own them. Besides, if SEGA did own them then why aren't they in the games? Why aren't they mentioned at all in the game canon? Also Sally started off from a spin-off T.V. show that was non-canon in the first place but then Archie used her for more things besides a generic tomboy princess. 

I'm not being rude at all. All I'm saying is "lmao" and questioning why somebody is acting a little spoiled over the fact that we're getting another comic in the first place. Listen dude, I'm being as nice as I can. 

How does the absence of a character ruin a comic about something from the GAME CANON?? Are you saying people are gonna leave the franchise because Sally and the Freedom Fighters aren't in a COMIC? That's a little bit too far dude just saying lmao. You don't need to be so salty and angry over the fact that Sally Acorn, a girl who has been in the comics since 1993 for god fucking sake, is not in a comic. She's been in a comic for 24 years dude.

I still get the impression you're being hostile about this but I'll trust in that you have no ill intent. To answer your questions-

1) Sally and the Freedom Fighters have actually appeared in an official Sonic game. Sonic Spinball. At the same time there was Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine which took characters from the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon that ran along at the same time as SatAm. Now yes, those games aren't "canon" but I would argue that the games have very little that is canon. Aside from characters and items not much is consistent or even well made. We might get official statements from Sonic Team but even then I don't hold their word in high regard.

2) I did not mean to imply that people would leave the fandom or the franchise for the Freedom Fighters absense, that was my poor choice of words, as I think that is almost impossible. However you seem to have made an error. Not every Sonic fan is dedicated to the games, for some the cartoons and comics are the core of their interest for Sonic in general. So characters like Sally and others may be more important than even some game characters to certain fans. I consider them equal personally but I'm not every fan. And yes Sally and friends have been in comics for 24 years but just because you start a new series doesn't mean you cannot use them when you have the ability.
