Anti Sonic Archie Stamp by Kimiku Anti Sonic Archie Stamp by Kimiku

(also, for those of you don't know- I made this stamp because of the lack of anti-archie stamps. I actually like the series, and have read it up to issue 150. Stop getting upset over things on the internet, kiddos)

Sonic (c) Sega

Good News: Archie Sonic is finally cancelled, I'm glad for it.
I hope IDW Sonic comics would be better without mary-sue, drama, shippings and any useless/unlikable characters.
I definitely prefer Sega Sonic.

I loved sally in the tv series she was " yeah LETS GO ON A ADVENTURE!" With a bit of sonall in it. In comics she's a drama queen but I love you sally.

In Archie Sonic characters are absolutely unlikable, made them into teeny drama.
I hope Archie Super Mario doesn't get a drama, shipping, Mary-Sues and more bad things.

I like drawing my own comics or read marvel or dc comics than this. Why? It was'nt realistic and there's crazy slag in the Archie comics today,also what's worse is that they cancelled ideas for sonic games also kidnapped other capcom or sega characters and put them in the worlds unite... Stare

Allow me to fully explain why I prefer little romances (More so in "Boom!")

I prefer the subtle hints of pairings in the games, and in the "Boom"... At least SEGA knows how to keep relationships subtle, without having it slow down the pacing of the series, and having it shoved in our faces... *cough* SonSal *cough*

"Boom!" handles the writing of their affection much better.. Ian Flynn ships SonSal, and shoves it down the reader's throats... With SonAmy in Boom, they're relatively subtle, and don't deter the story any further.. With Archie, there are entire issues where Sonic (Fucking Sonic) is moping because he's the only single one.. Not so much with Boom... Boom actually sticks with the traditional Sonic storytelling, not interested in having the plot slow down for some unnecessary romance plot.. Archie just has soap-operas with Sonic characters, which is redundant, as there are a ton of fanfictions that have this... A few I've come across, however, did the romance plots much better.. If anything, Boom multitasks; telling a subtle romance plot, but at the same time, keeping the plot going in a traditional Sonic fashion..

And people are going to say "SonAmy in 'Boom!' is just fanservice.."
 
Fanservice is Fanservice.. It's how it's handled that's the factor here... Boom handles it rather well, because they're only occasional little hints that show up, and don't slow the pace down at all for some teen-drama nonsense (Keeping with Sonic tradition), that Archie comics spew out whenever they can... Like I said, many times, Sonic has been portrayed as as depressed for being single.. Hell, Sonic's portrayal in Sonic and the Black Knight would beg to differ with Archie Sonic, simply because of one line from the game: "Gimme a break! What's up with all this drama?!" This very quote summarizing a major complaint with the comics; hell, SEGA themselves expressed their disdain towards the comics many times in the games.. In fact, at SoS 2009, SEGA revealed that if they had known that Archie was making Sonic comics without SEGA of Japan's permission, they would've sued Archie, but it's too late now...

Archie practically screamed "WE SHIP THEEZ TOO, AND UR AN EEDUT 4 NOT SHIPPING OUR SHIPZ!!!1!1" Boom did very well in handling SonAmy here, as the pairing isn't the main focus of the story as opposed to Archie who've had 3 issues in a row dedicated to SonSal drama, prissy-teen love triangles, and other literary elements foreign to the Sonic lore.. Hints of certain pairings are brought up from time to time, but that's different from having it being shoved down the audiences throats.. Even if it is because of the fans, it still makes it preferable to Archie, since Ouido actually gives a shit about their target audience.. Archie just tends to write whatever they feel like, without really caring about the audience's reactions (Y'know, like Modern Family Guy..) If I wanted to read up on a hormonal man's fantasy about a soap-opera with Sonic characters, I'd go on to [fanfiction.net]... Hell, Marvel comics, and even SEGA themselves even flat-out state that they don't like the comics either.. SoS 2009 even revealed this.. to the WORLD..

I'd rather have an traditional Sonic story that follows its source's lore (And then-some), while only having hints of romance pop up every now-and-again before getting right back to the plot, than having an entire soap-opera with anthropomorphic characters in some teen-drama nonsense.. That isn't what Sonic is known for; Sonic is known for being a light-hearted series (Roots of a cartoon, I might add) about a blue hedgehog battling an obese Theodore Roosevelt-based scientist.. Making a soap-opera out of that is just asking for backlash.. Overkill romances like these are why Twilight has the reputation it has.. (And frankly deserves..) Romance isn't a focus in the Sonic lore.. I mean, let's say you did the same with a series like ChalkZone.. If that were the case, your show would be utter garbage, because your show has been established as a lighthearted cartoon, with a simple concept and premise.. It's the same with a series like Sonic the Hedgehog.. Taking a lighthearted series, and making it a "drama-fest" would ruin your series, and would be a slave to all kinds of backlash.. Of course, the average Sonic fanboy wouldn't understand this, unless they were writers of a fanfic, and had received criticism even ONCE..

If you prefer a serious storyline with romance that doesn't shove fanservice down your throat, then, Archie is the wrong place to go.. Teen Titans did it much better.. Danny Phantom did it much better.. Megaman Legends did it much better! Hell, the fucking Simpsons did it first... And better!

Sonic Adventure didn't need drama.. Sonic Heroes didn't need drama.. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (definitely) didn't need drama.. Sonic Generations didn't need drama.. Sonic Colours certainly didn't need drama.. Drama in this series is what ruins it for the general audience. And that's only scratching one problem I have with this "licensed" fanfiction..

Yes to this. You took the words right out of my mouth. I applaud you good sir. :iconclapplz:

I hate reading comics that involve the writer shoving their ships down my throat. It's bothersome. SonAlly was so rushed in the comics. I mean, the comics made Sonic and Sally fall in love so quickly that it not only deteriorates Sonic's character, but also Sally's probably. I prefer subtle hints of pairings than a romance that involves forcing two characters to fall in love with each other by making them out of character. Too much drama, especially in pairings, can get cliche.

I would bring up Issue 134, but that'd be too easy... Anyways, yes.. That's one of the things I like about Boom; they're actually subtle with their shippings.. Yes, they had an episode where they're trying to teach Tails on how to win a girl over, but it's done in a way that's humorous, and still stays in Sonic tradition in some way or form.. And, besides, it was only 1 episode, and there's really no continuity between episodes, so it was fine..

I meant to say too much drama, particularly in pairings, can get cliche. I don't want to sit through an overly dramatic, cliche pairing that feels like a soap opera.

Like you said, Sonic isn't supposed to be about romance. I mean Sonic's character says he only lives for adventure, which is why he loves to run. Something like that. Having him slow down for Sally in the comics makes him out of character. Having said that, Sonic's characterization in the Archie comics is way out of the ball park.

I swear, the Sonally fanbase is as bad as the Twilight fanbase, as, you mentioned before, the Twilight series is infamous for it's overkill romances. Hence rabid fangirls lust over it like a badly written, romance fanfiction, just like Sonally fans do.

And by the way, Karl Pollers and Ken Ponders wrote issue 134 of the comic. The romance between Sonic and Sally felt so unrealistic that it made Sally and Sonic so out of character. It made me want to shake my head in disbelief. Atrocious writing I tell you!

a) Yeah.. If that were the case in a series like DBZ, it wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable..

b) Sonic has never really been about romance, but Sonic Boom, and (arguably) Sonic X did these kinds of plots much better; keeping them in Sonic tradition, and pacing them appropriately, with only subtle hints of it popping up every now and again.. Also, I found Sonic and Dr. Eggman to be grossly out of character in the issue "Hide and Seek and DESTROY"...

c) Yup..

d) It was... Very much...

This is why I enjoy Sonic X. The writers made the romance subtle. They really get it. They know that Sonic isn't all about romance. They understand who Sonic really is, a hedgehog who only lives for freedom and adventure.

I completely agree! The games know how to handle pairing hints while in Archie, almost everyone is tied down in relationships. Like no no. We want Action/Adventure plots and no blunt kissy romance scenes between couples constantly. Sonally doesn't really appeal to me because she gives Sonic a serious dramatic side, they're only teenagers, why get so tied down and serious? We know Sonic more for his adventurous speedy feel. I'd rather see Amy go after Sonic, crush hints, etc than Sonic tied down with an official girlfriend. I like how they didn't blantly pair Sonic and Amy because Sonic just isn't the type for girlfriend, but there's "hints"

I absolutely hate how they changed all of the character's personalities, especially Eggman's. In the games, he actually cares about things. In Archie he's basically a sociopath who thinks life is a "game".
