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.

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.

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.
I might be stating the obvious that the Sonic Fandom has had major issues for years considering the drama for at least the past 12 years. The only reason i personally I never found it as the worst fandom ever or even near the top ten all is for the following reasons: discovering more sane fans on forums like these, learning about certain fan projects and ideas, more fandoms I've discovered that are way worst, but especially prominent is the fact that there hasn't been a major public incident involving fans (as far as I've seen though I be curious if anyone has evidence that says otherwise). The incident reason is why fandoms like MLP, Rick and Morty for me are in the top ten worst fandoms.

With that said though, I sometimes wonder if certain people are actual fans at all. No this isn't some bullshit elitist point I'm trying to make. I'm more referring to fans who get lash out at others who genuinely want more and better out of the franchise because these "fans" are comtempt with the way this franchise is currently or just find the series as just fun.

Case in in point, Exhibit A:…

This is a thing both Psyco-the-Frog and TrueSonicSpirit pointed out before, but to put simple basically Windii criticized the Sonic Twitter pointing out the BS jokes that are spammed many times over, and then people started replying Windii with stupid reasons and memes. The one occurring picture that was posted was the NO Fun Allowed sign.

I'm really starting to think both Psyco and TSS are right that this fandom contains people who are not really fans at all or fans of something else who are here because they like to dictate what Sonic should be for a personal agenda. I'm sometimes even wonder if these fans are more
responsible than Sega is for the way Sonic is today. (Yeah, I know Sega is responsible for bad decisions with Sonic, but fans like the ones I'm pointing out seem to be enablers for bad decisions.)

What good is a series being fun when all you've got is something bland and lackluster resorting to nothing but unfunny jokes and memes? I'm mean people rip on the "it's for kids argument for many types of media yet Sonic is excluded somehow.

Let that sink in.
So here are some updates for you guys.

Joe Hughes has recently left IDW and is being replaced by Megan Brown.
From what I have looked up, she's worse then David Mariote

Also, both the Sonic Team Racing book and IDW Sonic #10 have been delayed.
Speculate all you want on this one.

And of course there was an interview with Ian Flynn I have recently read, and here's what I have read.
Plus some of my thoughts.

Q:As a lifelong Sonic the Hedgehog fan, I first discovered your work on that book. How did you first break in to the industry?

(I'm Aleah Baker also had something to do with it, but ok.)

A: I applied to Archie Comics while completing university. After four years I caught a lucky break and was given a chance to show them what I could do. I worked hard and within a few months I was lead writer of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Q: You've written Sonic for a long time, was writing Sonic a dream come true for you?

A: It was. I grew up watching the cartoons, playing the games and reading the comics. I’ve been very fortunate to be part of something I’ve enjoyed for so long.

(I'm not sure about the shows part, but everything else is kind of accurate.)

Q: What has your experience been like transitioning from Archie to IDW?

A: It’s both familiar and very different. Being contracted by IDW Publishing means starting all over with a new editorial team, new production schedules, and a new working relationship with SEGA.

(No, Sega hasn't been involved with the comic at all, the fact that they keep saying that it is cannon yet you and the others are saying it isn't proves it. Plus, didn't you once say "well, you never know what the licenser wants"?)

Q: The Freedom Fighters, like Sally, Antoine, etc. were some of my favorite characters. Are there any pla s to bring them into the new book?

A: That’s not up to me. SEGA has the final say in what spin-off material they’d allow to be revived.

(as far as I can tell, they're already green lit for the book, IDW's editors said the door isn't closed and Arron Webber acknowledged the demand multiple times. Plus, you said Sticks can come full sale from Sonic Boom. So your already confirming that you lied about them not being Sega property.)

Q: Can you tease any upcoming stories in the book? Do you plan on staying with the book for a while?

A: I plan on writing Sonic for as long as they let me. Year Two of the book will see an even bigger adventure than Year One with much higher stakes.

(well the stakes haven't been very low so I'm already not expecting much.)

Q: You also wrote Mega Man for Archie as well, do you think there's a chance that book could move to IDW also?

A: That’s between IDW and Capcom.

(I'll give him credit, at least he's being honest with this one.)

Q: Are there any characters you would love a chance at writing in the future?

A: On my wish list is StarFox, but the list of projects I’d love to be a part of is virtually endless.

(Uh, that's a series not a character. Yeah, he's pretty much dodging this one.)

Q: Do you have any other upcoming projects besides your current books that you can talk about?

A: I’m writing a graphic novel series about Nintendo’s ARMS for Dark Horse Publishing due out next year. I also have a podcast/gaming channel called the BumbleKast. You can find it and all my current projects on my website:

(Well, Better cross Dark Horse off the list.)

That's all for now.
Care to give input?

There’s been an obscure rumor floating around that you guys probably don’t know about, but it’s that if your fan stories get too popular (regardless if you give credit to them) SEGA will take down your stories. I don’t know if they have a solid reason for doing this, but it sounds more like “like what we give you and play our way or face the consequences” and it has me scared to the point where I might quit making stories about the old continuation. Is it true?
ShanahaT Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2018
That sounds like BS.
Sega has never acted that way to fans before.
If that's the case then all the Sonic fan games and hacks would be facing the same legal BS that AM2R faced.

Okay, as long as it’s remains that, then I feel just fine. i Heard it from a comic in a deviantation showing Sonic all upset about the mandates enforced on him in case you were wondering

in light of what knight of the wind is doing I made a Archie Sonic history video series so I can inform people about the stuff that actually in the Archie Sonic comics I came to the realization last year that no one knows really anything about the Sonic Archie Comics and what they do know about the Archie Sonic comics are from a bunch of YouTubers who barely know anything about the Archie Comics I feel like they should give this info from a YouTuber who knows what they're talking about which is me also others who are actually interested also for the record I'm not saying we should attack Knight of the Wind but let's show him and the others that the Archie Sonic storyline aren't weird but actually compelling…

This group keeps asking to feature my "List of things wrong with Archie Sonic reboot" and I keep declining to feature it. 

Sadly, you guys can't seem to take a hint so I'm just going to say it right here: PLEASE STOP ASKING TO FEATURE THE DEVIATION IN YOUR GROUP. I don't want it to be featured here and no amount of asking permission will make me change my mind. So please stop or else I may have to report you guys for harassment. 

Don't make me warn you again.
