    I really hoped Megadrive would get finished, but I doubt this will have any ties to the old comics. Which is a shame. I may not have been huge on them, but it's sort of odd to think the SatAM cast, after 24 years, are finally gone.

    The end of one adventure is the beginning of another.

    I am more than okay with this.

    IDW has done really great stuff with the My Little Pony franchise, their MLP comics are 100% legit. It helps too that they used a variety of artists/writers to keep it fresh along the way. Along with having two series, their main series having story-arc's, the second being stand-alone stories. It's a great combination. Although to get to that, Sonic comics would have to of course get the sales numbers to justify it.

    Also the MLP IDW comics have very few ads in them, while the Archie comics not only felt like they were printed on cheaper paper, but were full of ads (and shorter as well).

    If IDW puts the same level of attention on Sonic as they did with MLP, then this could be fantastic.

    I'm sure you had nothing to do with it.

    It's exactly what I wanted honestly, I'm so glad! Hopefully the Freedom Fighters screenhoggers aren't part of this adventure. IDW will do a great job at publishing, I'm sure of it. And I swear I'll buy them!

    Awesome-sauce. Even if the universe of the Archie Comics is ending, it's great that Sonic comics aren't ending as a thing entirely. I'll miss the Freedom Fighters and other exclusive characters if they get the boot.

    Now then, I wonder what the new mandates will be? Probably mostly the same as for Archie.

    • No romance for SEGA-spawn
    • No aging, or being implied to have aged
    • No character development for SEGA-spawn
    • No permanently changed clothing
    • No relatives for SEGA-spawn unless established by SEGA
    • No characters from older Sonic properties (I guess if this is completely new, the grandfather clause won't give SatAM and AoStH characters a free pass anymore)
    • No Eggman NEGA, or Black Doom, or other characters SEGA isn't fond of for whatever reason
    • No Classic Sonic, except for special cases like the anniversary
    • Eggman can't win
    • Sonic can't cry
    • The name of the world is Sonic's World
    • SEGA-spawn can't die


    Classic-exclusives like Mighty though, I'm completely unsure about. In the games at least, they've updated from considering them non-existent to them only existing in the "classic universe". Oh, and then there's the "animal and human worlds"..

    I'm pretty sure the non-Sonic Team game characters are also barred along with all the other older characters. I've heard that the Hooligans were only allowed in Mania as unobtrusive cameos, and "were not part of the Classic Sonic universe".
