  • DeCarlo Rules: I just took a peek at online preview pages of Superteens vs. Crusaders #2, and I'm actually starting to get pretty excited about this. Not from an Archie-centric POV, because it's not classic Archie-style... but the Mighty Crusaders are looking mighty good to me, maybe better than I've ever seen them done. I don't expect that to make any difference in sales, since practically no one else cares about those characters...  :(

  • DeCarlo Rules: Ah, I was hoping for some kind of surprise. The usual ongoing titles plus TPB collections of VIXENS Vol. 1, ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK Vol. 4 (Fairy Tales), and the previously-announced debut issues of the miniseries ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN '66 and ARCHIE'S SUPERTEENS VS. MIGHTY CRUSADERS. It's nice to see a second issue of Dan Parent's BETTY & VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER, which means that it's bi-monthly, for however long it lasts.  :smitten:

Author Topic: The end of sonic the hedgehog comics (unofficially) and how will it play out  (Read 2104 times)

Since Archie Comic's Sonic the hedgehog comics are now remaining on hiatus and with Archie comics focus more on their main brand and the television series that is called 'Riverdale'.I think that Sonic the hedgehog comic book series will come to an end.

So here are my thoughts on how Sonic the hedgehog comic book series will end when the company annouce that they end contract with Sega  and how the final issues play out.

For the Main series: Since the hiatus began with Sonic the hedgehog 290,I think the writers will probably cancel the plots for the future issues of 291-300 and just rewrite 291 or/and 292 as the farewell issue/s for the series similar to what the final issue of Mega Man did when it began its hiatus and now cancelation by just giving a sneak peek to upcoming plots that will never be made and then ends with an 'And the Adventure continues' ending along with the bonus final page saying goodbye to the fans before the series ends or maybe a break in the fourth wall issue saying that the series is cancelled as the characters leave the set before the stories are over and then ends with sonic before going along with his friends to unemployment waving goodbye .

But if Archie comics decides to give the writers a chance to write one more issue before the end  then they will release 291-294 before ending the series with issue 295 which will be the final issue of the series and it will have  the 2 similar plots to what  I said about issue 291 and perhaps maybe a funny bonus page before closing the series will have the characters complaining that the series is cancelled and they didn't reach issue 300.

But if Archie comics decided to end the series  with a bang with issue 300,I think that they will get a chance for the writers to make the final story arc from the series that will begin from issue 295 to 300 which will be the epilogue issue and bring  closure to the series

I think that the series will be released on monthly or maybe weekly since Archie Comics focus more on their main brand and just end the sonic series quickly.

For the Spinoff : Since the series has the only spinoff that is Sonic universe,I am going to guess how Archie comics is going to end the series along with the main one,Perhaps maybe they will cancel the planned freedom fighters storyarc that was supposed to begin with issue 95 to probably 100 and just turn issue 95 into the final issue as it probably deals with the series cancelation or with present Sonic thinking about the memories of his previous adventures and write down in a journal or something.

But if archie comics wants to end the series with issue 100 then they will greenlight the freedom fighters storyarc making it the final storyarc of the Sonic universe series and end it with a historic 100th issue.

and like the main series, this  series will  also be released on monthly or maybe weekly since Archie Comics focus more on their main brand and just end the sonic series quickly.

So these are my thoughts on how the final issues of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic plays out,What do you think?

Yes,I know that but some people think that the comic book series is about to end a at any moment

When does Archie officially lose the license?  Weeks, months, a year?  Just wonder if there's enough financial motivation to produce more issues if as Goldwater reportedly stated "(they) are trying to get away from Sonic because it's not really Archie"?


Does Sega have another publisher to turn to in the event ACP doesn't renew?
Comics!

I don't think so.Since the series remain in hiatus.I have a feeling that it will be cancelled in about next year.

Sadly,No.

Hard to say, but both IDW and Boom Studios publish kids' comics lines, into which Sonic could conceivably fit comfortably. Arguably IDW would be the better fit, since Sonic qualifies as both kid-friendly and as a nostalgia property. Are either of those companies interested? Who knows.

DC also publishes a small line of kids' titles, but it's been some years since DC actually licensed any properties for kids -- parent company Warner already has plenty of kid-targeted IPs.

I think that could work ...kind of.

Unfortunately they focus more on their main own brand including warner bros own properties
