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.

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

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.

:iconsave-western-sonic:

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.

UPDATE:
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.

Sometimes I have to take a step back and think of what I'm doing before I go all counter rant to someone who has a strong opinion against an aspect of the Sonic franchise I'm willing to give a chance.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not 100% postive towards absolutely everything, but I don't want to become one of you. I don't want to be the one who spends their journals ranting in some bad paragraph format, making mean-spirited photoshop memes to reinforce their point, ranting on the Twitter of public figures associated with the franchise, or going into counter rants about why they hate something just cause someone complimented it.

Personally, I would rather go on about what I like rather than what I DON'T like. I mean who "deliberately" spends most of their free time devoting themselves to something they hate, when I could show appreciation about what I do like, both past and present?

I know we've all got our own different personalities and behavior hang-ups, but I just feel that devoting fandom to the parts you like is generally more healthy. If you don't like something, that's fine. Just don't pounce on someone for liking it. Do what you do,but don't verbally shoot someone in the face for doing something different.

Thank you, as much as I like the archie SOnic comics (post reboot mostly) and the freedom fighters, the content of this group makes me want to never join it, and were not the only ones, other people dont want to join the group for that same reason either. Its just full of vindictiveness and toxicity.

Honestly, that's my problem with this group and how much it's devolved from actually being about preserving Archie Sonic for future generations of Sonic fans, to basically pointing fingers at whoever they blame for the demise of the comic. Every time I look at this group, it's "IT'S IAN FLYNN'S FAULT! IT'S KEN PENDERS' FAULT! IT'S SEGA'S FAULT!" etc. and nothing new really being said or added, just the same arguments being made over and over again like an echo chamber.

I agree, this group barely spends any time actually trying to SAVE Archie Sonic (as it's name implies) and instead spends more time complaining about Ian Flynn non-stop. It's like they don't even care about the comic at all anymore.

i mean to be fair archie sonic is kinda....beyond saving at this point. the comic was cancelled and archie no longer has the license to the comics.
the shows over.

the only way archie-sonic has a snowball's chance in hell of making a comeback, is through reprints. and i dont see idw going out of their way to untangle the legal mess that is the copyrights of each and every character and concept created for the books. flynn has mentioned possibly having the archie stories conclude in idw, but that likely wont happen for a while for very unfortunate reasons.


tho, personally, theres one way id like to see the archie-sonic spark rekindled, but it will probably never happen in a million years. and no its not reprints or a continuation of pre-reboot.
wanna know what thatd be?

"i mean to be fair archie sonic is kinda....beyond saving at this point. the comic was cancelled and archie no longer has the license to the comics.

Then why are you here at all if you think Archie Sonic is beyond saving? I don't see the point. Most of the recent journals I see here are ranting about the Sonic movie (which even Sega Sonic fans are unhappy with, let alone fans of the American Sonic canon), so I really see those as just hopping on the current bandwagon. This group doesn't seem to be focused on preserving Archie Sonic for future generations of Sonic fans due to how the members can't seem to agree on anything.

"the only way archie-sonic has a snowball's chance in hell of making a comeback, is through reprints. and i dont see idw going out of their way to untangle the legal mess that is the copyrights of each and every character and concept created for the books. flynn has mentioned possibly having the archie stories conclude in idw, but that likely wont happen for a while for very unfortunate reasons."

Not going to happen, Sega is more focused on marketing the games at this point (hence the IDW comic being more game-centric), and doesn't want to handle the problem at all because to them, making money is more important to them.

"tho, personally, theres one way id like to see the archie-sonic spark rekindled, but it will probably never happen in a million years. and no its not reprints or a continuation of pre-reboot.

wanna know what thatd be?"

Lemme guess, does it involve convincing Sega to put the Freedom Fighters into IDW? If so, I don't imagine that happening any time soon, even if Ian Flynn were to leave the title.

Exactly. Instead of hating on IDW, they should keep any love for the characters and elements alive, regardless of there not being any current stories with them.

That's the problem, they only care about the legal status of the Freedom Fighters and ONLY the Freedom Fighters (because apparently no other characters in the Archie comic matter be they made by Ken Penders or not). They think Ian Flynn is a Sega Sonic fanboy who allegedly hates SatAM/Archie and the Freedom Fighters and believe he and he alone is behind all the problems with the IDW comic, ignoring the corporate higher-ups from Sega, IDW and even Archie before them because it doesn't fit their narrative.

What they want is relevance, what they want is to be treated as equals because of the Sega Sonic fans viewing Archie Sonic as a "furry fan-fiction" and not an adaptation of the games, and since Sonic is a game franchise first, Sega is not going to view the comic as important. The problem is that the fans complain so much that they are essentially discouraging newer Sonic fans from wanting to get into the Archie comic or the SatAM cartoon, thus causing them to stick with the Sega-centric and Sega-controlled Sonic media that's been coming out more recently.

I've tried giving them suggestions to preserve the American Sonic continuity and western Sonic media better, but they ended up ignored me. I even suggested they take the Freedom Planet route and try making a spiritual successor (or at least accepting the idea of a spiritual successor) and they ignored me there as well. They only hear what they want to hear.
