Group Info

Preserving and bringing back the real Archie Sonic Continuity!

ARCHIE comics, SEGA, and Penders actions have butchered and warped the comic. Walking all over the cherished memories of the fans who love this comic!

And to be clear, this group is dedicated towards returning the Sonic the Hedgehog comic back to how it was. We are not a group for those who just want say how they hate what ARCHIE, SEGA, and/or Penders has done. We work to let the parties responsible know that we wish for the comic to be returned to it's correct form and how much it means to us. We additional draw and/or submit artwork of the true StH continuity into the group here to further show our love for the comic before they ruined it.

Also, all rules for the group are in the about us page of the group, read them to know the rules.

Let's talk about how well IDW is really doing.
Last month IDW Sonic #20 sold 11,202 units
Before we talk about anything, it is important that you watch this video.
Because it goes in depth with what IDW's financial state is.
the reason I bring this up is because of people that use the sales charts of the IDW Sonic comics to justify why Sonic is "better off with out any Freedom Fighter crap"
Specifically sales from This chart.
Before you start jumping to conclusions, here are a couple things that you need to take into account.
1. All 90s sales figures (and prior decades) are un-official, because there were multiple prints that Archie use to publish at the time. They stopped doing that in the 2010s.
2. Archie's Sonic comics use to sell better then most of Marvel and DCs comics back then and they were Archie's best selling series for a long time. IDW's books cant even seem to sell better then Marvel and DC's worst books (like Captain marvel) and it is still not even IDW's b

Sega is not trying to kill American Sonic.
… If anything they are more interested in this branch of the franchise now then they were in the past.
It has become clear as day at this point that the evidence against Ian Flynn and the many other members of the IDW Sonic staff has become too great ignore at this point.
Especially since they have clearly gone out of their way to lie about stuff like How Ian Flynn fought tooth and nail too keep the freedom fighters in the comic when the reboot occurred despite that the real reason they stayed was because Archie was contracted to keep using them. As well as say nonsense like how the Freedom Fighters are not Sega property, despite that there is evidence out there that clearly proves other wise.
and as far as those Sega mandates are concerned, they lied about them too.
Let alone t

How to stop what we love from becoming obscure.
Nothing is set in stone and I have encountered many fans who have expressed them selves in saying that everything they loved about the Archie Sonic series will soon fade into obscurity.
Even though the chances of everything coming back is still quite likely (one way or another), there is no denying that we would have to wait for at least the rest of the decade for a good chunk of the things we loved to come back.
Keep in mind that what I'm saying does not just apply to the SATAM characters, but to anything that was involved in the Archie series. Including Ken Pender's exclusives, The Adventures of Sonic characters, Underground, and even the stuff in between.
However, there have been situations like this with other franchises before.
For example, Star Wars fans once felt that some of there favorite characters from the old expanded universe would never return after Disney bought the franchise. But as the years have passed, more EU material has returned bit by bit. ( I would give names bu

Petition to save the Freedom Fighters
Save the Freedom Fighters by putting them in IDW's Sonic comics!

Howdy, friends! :flagus: :flagus:
There is a petition going on right now which is about to save the Freedom Fighters by putting them in IDW'S latest Sonic Comics.
It was made by the owner. :iconShanahaT: ShanahaT
Here is the link to sign in:
I guess it's best to quote the text from the petition:
Princess Sally Acorn, Nicole the Hologram, Bunnie Rabbot, Antione DeCoolete, Rotor the Walrus, and all these other non-game characters from the Sonic franchise don't have a home anymore! They need you're help!    
On July 19th Sega announced the end of their partnership with Archie Comics. On October 9th IDW publishing, the new publisher of the Sonic comics, announced that they will be "starting fresh". Meaning that they wi

These things are relevant to the group's aim but for some reason most of these did not receive approval from the initial up-loader, or other reasons.
You may have noticed that this group has recently become affiliated with a group with this icon.


This group is called the Save Western Sonic group.
This group is dedicated to uniting the silent majority that supports the old pre-Sonic Adventure continuity and having their voices heard so that Sega can finally acknowledge the demands for older characters like the Knothole Freedom fighters, Scratch & Grounder, Manic & Sonia, and even STC characters to make a come back since their absence has been going on since the new millennia began.

And yes, this group will improve upon what the Save-Archie-Sonic group has been trying to do.

The rules will be more strict.

The membership problem that people have complained about here is no longer there now.

We will focus on bringing back other aspects of western Sonic other then just the stuff related to the Archie series.

And we will be bigger, more diverse, and over all more organized.

With that said, the group is still establishing itself,  so not everything is posted up yet. But we have established rules (check them out for yourself once you click the link) and are currently opening ourselves to new members. So by all means, join in and sign up to join the our movement.…

remember when I told everyone about the Don't Save Archie Sonic Group six months ago and stated that...
"They currently have 12 members and seven deviations posted on there group." and how the formed roughly a week ago prior to me writing that journal?
Well the Save-Western-Sonic group (a group that supports the American continuity and characters) was able to gain more then 50 members and watchers in that same time.
And we have far more then seven deviations.
That should hopefully give you all some hope for just how capable the concept of both this group and the new group truly is.
Fellow members, please hear me. Given all that has happened and how much time has past, I believe the time has come for us to accept hard truths. This group was formed for the purpose of trying to save the Archie Sonic comic that we all, for our own reasons, loved very much. It should be clear by now to any rationale individual that this goal is no longer attainable. What's more, our group has gained a tarnished reputation by the bitter rantings of various members (who I won't name here). Such outbursts do nothing to help achieve our original goal and are a disservice to the memory of Sonic and his friends. To make any more attempts would be essentially flogging a dead horse and be seen as acts of desperation by others. The time has come to concede defeat. However, while the official comic can no longer return to us, that doesn't mean we'll allow Mobius to fade from our memories. Though it may be gone, it still brought us joy once. Therefore, I give my support for all members to continue fan projects that are of a positive nature. And as for our name, I would like to submit one that properly reflects our new stance and will do credit to the franchise we love.

"We Are Mobius" (W.A.M.)

So your Group has been hacked...So there are journals going around the place that DA groups are being "hacked". Well first of all, no, that is not what hacking is. Secondly, I'm going to show you how to adjust your group settings so that people cannot "hack" your Group.The most common way that Groups on DA can be compromised is by trolls joining the Group as Co-founder or Moderator or whatever. You yourself as a Group owner can disable this, and I'll show you how. Step 1. Go to your group. ,Step 2. Go to the "Admin Area of your Group. This is where the settings are.,Step 3. Go to the "Manage Members" part of the Group settings, located under the group icon on the top left-hand side of the page.,Step 4. Go to where it says "Founder" and set the join requests to "Are Not Allowed".Step 5. Repeat this step for Co-Founders, and Moderators and any other admin roles.Step 6 (OPTIONAL). If you don't want just anyone to join your Group, set the "Any Deviant" join requests to "Subject to Vote", so that way you can control who can and cannot join your Group. And that's all there is to it. Please be more vigilent that your Group's permissons are correct. And for those little hooligans who are overriding the permissions, gtfo and go back to playing Minecraft, you little "hakerman". If it's not your Group, then DO NOT interfere with it. End of. For more info, go here: Thank you all for coming to my little TED Talk, I that you found this somewhat helpful, if so, drop me a watch, and until then, this is Evie, OUT. xoxo

Hey watch out, there's a group hacker on the loose!
LightReading2 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2022
I was reading  that IDW won't use freedom fighters due to their darker tones  that they perfer to have sonic and the restoration chasing after  Dr Robotnik   ( Eggman)  across the planet sort of like saw in Sonic X show with a bit of a lighter tone.   they want a more free going  sonic   these days that reflected in Sega games and  i guess live action movies. 

I do miss the Archie comics created Freedom Fighters like Gregory St   that skunk freedom Fighter or Fiona Fox.

not sure if Sega or Archie comics own the other Ecinas  or if sega only owns Knuckles

I think it'd do me wonders to see my journal to this group. I figured we should focus our energy on something more positive, and I thought my journal would somewhat encourage that.
