Group Info

We are fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, who take a less positive view of the Archie Comics-produced adaptation of the series, and sepnd some time every now and then casting a more critical, analytical eye over it and its many quirks and foibles. We are quite happy to welcome criticism and discussion on any of our threads, as long as they're not too old. We only ask that you treat our views with respect, and we shall do the same for you.

Rules & Regulations
(These are subject to editing, based on whether they work in practice and seem fair or not)

:bulletred: We are critics, not blind haters and trolls.

:bulletyellow: Alternate fancomics, fanfictions, and generally your own take on the Archie universe are welcome!

:bulletblue: Anything not relating to the Sonic franchise is not welcome, however, and Sonic-related art should preferrably be Archie-based/related.

:bulletgreen: Michael Gallagher, Ken Penders, Karl Bollers, and Ian Flynn are not the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. They are just mediocre-at-best writers. Similarly, the other continuities are not perfect examples of storytelling. If you have trouble viewing these authors as people, this may be a bad place for you.

:bulletred: We are focused on the storytelling, characterization, etc, of the comic.

:bulletyellow: We do not discuss the lawsuit without acknowledging that it was Archie's fault and Penders made it worse.

:bulletblue: No personal attacks, threats, or anything of the sort against the writers.

:bulletgreen: No trolling/spam on Bumbleking, or the artists' DA pages. That just makes us seem like fumbling idiots, and activity of this kind will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken.

:bulletred: No character hate art. Criticizing the characters is a-okay, as long as it's clear that it is the fault of the writers, not the character. We're not the Anti-Sally-Sue club, we're better than that.

:bulletyellow: Try to justify your arguments with valid reasons and evidence, or at least basic series logic.

:bulletblue: No holding up other continuities, especially SEGA, as the pure and perfect gospel of Sonic. Let's not forget that while Archie created 172 and the Mecha Sally arc, SEGA created Sonic 06 and endorsed Sonic X.

:bulletgreen: Have a point to your arguments, and try not to post something that you know is only going to piss Archie fans off without raising any issues. It will likely be just as aggravating to everyone within the group who actually have solid arguments.

:bulletred: Members have three strikes. Crossing the line three times will result in expulsion.

:bulletyellow: Communication between the Admins may result in promotions or demotions, based on conduct.

:bulletblue: Don't block someone just because they're arguing with you. A group like ours is bound to insight arguments and flamewars, and Archie fans are welcome to argue with us if they choose.

:bulletblack: Most importantly: Respect the opinions of others. Just because you hate Archie, doesn't necessarily mean that others will do.

Admins

Welcome to Anti-Archie-Sonic, a group dedicated - if somewhat haphazardly - to identifying flaws in the current Archie Sonic Comics and examining them in a variety of ways.

Group Folder Scheme:
Featured - Artwork or literature we on the admin team particularly think stands out or is of good quality.
Criticisms & Discussions about Ian Flynn - Pieces specifically pertaining to the current Archie writer, Ian Flynn.
Criticisms & Discussions about SEGA - Due to their influence through product ownership and production mandates, this section is reserved for discussions regarding SEGA and their activities in relation to the comic.
Criticisms & Discussions about previous writers - Pieces pertaining to past Archie writers, Ken Penders, Karl Bollers, and Mike Gallagher.
Other Archie Discussions & Rants - For topical information that doesn't necessarily involve one writer, and more the concepts and ideas surrounding Archie comics.
Anti-Archie Sonic Comics - Visual novels and ideas for such that involve Archie characters or concepts.
Alternate Archie Sonic Fanfiction - Specifically literature in various forms that involve Archie characters or concepts.
Anti-Hate Character Art - While characters are responsible for their actions they cannot be blamed for incorrect or unfair portrayal, and so this folder is for artwork looking at preventing character hate.
Stamps - What it says on the tin; stamps relating to Anti-Archie concepts.
Misc. - Anything that doesn't really fit the above categories for some reason.
Authentic Arguments - An experimental idea I'm implementing, this is a folder where members can submit discussions and relevant talks about Archie Sonic from pro-comic speakers, provided they have a valid point or present them well, so we can account for these things and better understand the situation.

So, that's the way things work here. Simple enough, right?

So, while I could review 283 now... I'm not going to just yet. Instead, on Sunday, :iconrevilnemesis3: and I will be doing a joint-review of Mega Drive issue 1. So yeah, look out for that.

Spoiler Alert: They're basically rushing the finale of the Shattered World Arc. Makes you question why they were even building it up to begin with.

I don't think I need to cite much except to share the comic here.

You know what guys? It's almost embarrassing to see just how immature some Archie Sonic fans can be.

I've got akessel98 shitting about my "Things Wrong With Archie Sonic Reboot" list on tumblr now, presumably just so he can get people to hate on me.

And they think you guys are immature. This club is nuanced and sophisticated in comparison to the fans! Hell, I'm actually agreeing that the haters are more mature than the fans right now!

I'm almost embarrassed to admit I used to be an Archie Sonic fan now because of dicks like him and his tumblr followers...:no:

Stuff like that further proves why I'm not fond of the Archie Sonic fandom. A bulk of the fans can't stand it when something negative isnsaidnabout the comics (in this case, I mean in general, not sure if akessel gave a sincere apology yet). It's like the concept of an outside opinion doesn't exist.

Sorry to hear that you're getting it in the neck for expressing an opinion. That's pretty much what we've been dealing with since day one. The best thing you can do is just ignore it at this point. Leave them to their hugbox and move on with your life.

Oh I will. I'm not letting akessel and his minions get to me. 

I can say this though, now I know how you guys feel. All those bad things I said about you and the others in the past? Forget all of that, I take back every bad thing I said about this club and its members. You guys are actually better than the fans.

Not gonna lie, I'm so tempted to do a piece on the Eggman Dozen arc. 
The arc just makes wonder if Flynn has any idea about what he wants to do.

Good grief you guys are gonna have a field day with Issue 284...

That issue has fully convinced me that you guys are right. Flynn really loves abusing the Worf Effect in his writing. :disbelief:
