Oh man, am I glad this Sonic Grams came out! Not only does this further confirm that Cream is going to have a big and important moment in the ending for Shattered World Crisis but, if what this person is saying is true, Cream could actually have a story of her own in the comics (most likely manifesting as a Sonic Universe Arc) if enough people show support for it. Maybe this is just “PR talk” more than anything but I’m thinking this could actually be possible. After all, Ian changed the way he handled Metal Sonic after numerous comments about it. Bean’s victory over Espio in the “Champions Arc” was evidently in response to people questioning Bean’s role in the Team Hooligan. And there are probably many other decisions in the comics that were either partially or entirely influenced by fans. I don’t see why Cream wouldn’t get her own story if enough people express interest.
I may be overestimating the importance of this prospect but Cream having her own story in the comics would be so beneficial to her character! Not only would it give her a ton of spotlight to herself (which is sorely needed at this point) but this would be the chance Cream needs to get some character development and/or overall add more to her character. As much as I love Cream, I can’t deny there’s “not much” to her. Of course, that problem is entirely the result of Cream being denied many appearances and further denied the chance to take action or have her character be explored; both things that this potential “solo adventure” for Cream can fix. I mean it worked for all the other characters who got their own adventures in the comics, I can’t see how it wouldn’t work for Cream. And really, why should Cream be denied the chance to have her own story within the comic? Cream already gets denied so many opportunities! It’s time this constant denial ends, starting with this potential solo adventure!
I’ve already sent a message to the Archie Sonic staff stating my absolute desire for Cream to get her own adventure in the comics but that’s obviously not going to be enough to convince the people behind the Archie Sonic Comics to make a Cream focused story. I’m not one to ask for help, if only because I have nothing to give in return for the help, but I’m not letting this chance be missed out. So please, to anyone who sees this, I implore you to send a message to the Archie Sonic Staff (their e-mail address: Sonic@ArchieComics.com) and tell them that you would like or even love to see a solo adventure for Cream, along with anything else you personally want to see in the comics. I know that’s asking a lot but this has to happen! Or, at the very least, the chance for this potential story to occur should be increased. Also, PLEASE help spread this message around! Make journals linking to this one or reblog the Tumblr post of this if you have a Tumblr! The more people who know, the better!
I hate to say this but if it were your own favorite character, whom you feel doesn’t get enough or any love at all, being “offered” this chance and you reached out to me to help out, I would do it in a heartbeat. Even if I personally don’t care about the character or outright hate them, I’m not going to let my own personal bias prevent a character, especially an unpopular one, the chance at having their own story; to be fleshed out and given focus. Please, at least consider it…
