Knuckles with the bad artists
printable version
The Knuckles section has openned on the Archie comics page of TESP with all the covers from the 31 issue run, but only information on the first 6 issues.. Archie Comics don't seam to be doing very well on there Sonic Reprints so am not sure if they will ever do the Knuckles series (along with any of the Mini-series.. boy that is really annoyed me..) I'll get the information up when i get it really ^_^;

Okay now.. Added the first half of the Boss's from Sonic 2 and all the archie main series covers are up now (remember, we only go up to issue 71 for a number of reasons). I know have to complete the issue information.. might take a little while (i need about another 8 volumes of Archie archives to complete my 'set' but they seam to be slowing down at the moment..

Just a note
printable version
Just a note to say that after talking and thinking, the Archie Cut off point will be Issue 71. That was the issue when Sonic turned Neo. we shall only include up to that point since this is a Classic Sonic site.. that and the comic was bad enought but from that point on it really went to hell..

Comic note
printable version
Archie are starting up a new Sonic series 'Sonic Universe' and yep, like everyother Universe range going around, it's a mix of different dimensions and stuff..<br /><br />Also, i will note that, sure, i gotta update the archie section more but there will NOW be a cut off point.. Everyone knows that Archie comics as a company are pretty c##p now (that is a strong word for me...) and even there Archie range is poor these days (Come Back Mr Goldwater! It's turn to hell since you died!). Not Only is there Sonic Range completey Neo but nicking Fleetway Characters, Creating oringal ones which are very close to the more tin-pot fan ones? Nicole is now an Hologram Lynx girl.... This stuff gives fans a bad name... Sure, i look back and some of my old storys i'm thinking 'yeah.. it's junk. you can tell it's a fan stuff because it's just stupid'.. i find alot of small time fan stuff can be pretty stupid.. Oh sure, i'm not moaning at them but after a while you get a little fed up with 'how many colours can we recolour sonic' or 'Lets stick a Hedgehog with Tails's Tails and Knuckles Spines' etc.. it just gets a little borning and simple... but then they are doing the best they can! they are often fans which aren't great artists or designers so they have to cut-n-paste stuff to get there stuff done! Well done for trying!<br /><br />Okay, on TSW, I find characters like Manic and Whirlwind have too much of a role (Just to note, i took my nickname FROM my character Manic Man, NOT the other way around.. am not big on Fans that hve to stick themselfs as characters and stuff.. There is alot about Manic that is NOTHING like me) but when it comes to oringal characters there are REASON for them.. Hey, Look at AOSTH.. Only 3 Sega Characters and they rest are Oringal characters.. SatAM? Same deal.. SU? yep 3 but it's a different three (Minus tails, Plus Knuckles). So there isn't as much a bad deal with my Oringal Characters. This site costs a fair bit of money to run.. money that isn't recovered in anyway.. So i do the Cafepress shop (and now, the ad bars).. You will only see Oringal Characters on the Cafepress shop UNLESS i can get that okay from both Sega and DiC (why? Sega don't own Sally, Bunnie etc.. despite what some seam to say) They don't even really own the SatAM Robotnik design when you think of it.. Anyway.. So only Oringal characters can be used. What seams like a stupid idea now, we used SatAM as a base for TSW why? Because we knew there was no chance we would be able to do enought storys to set everything up from scratch and it was a good enought world to start with. It also means people have a good idea of the already set up characters. People should know the Character of Sonic, also Sally, Bunnie, etc.. So at first, we need to get everyone up to scratch on the new characters. So we first feature this characters more. TSW is running WAY behind what it should be so we have only really gotten the set up storys but we are getting to the bits were Sonic is the big time Saving the Day hero etc. Notice that none of our storys do we really show our characters in that light.. Was Manic a hero? not really.. They are all just support characters (In fact, characters like Manic aren't gonna be around for the ..... i can't say too much more..<br /><br />boy i should have used the full story for this but i want to write something explaining my views and everything soon.. this is just the short version ^_^

Book update
printable version
For some reason, Sonic Select volumes weren't in the Book Section for Archie... So i added them... i was going to say i updated the information and Cover for Select vol 2 but no point now ^_^<br /><br />What's odd, is Select Vol 2 says Archives vol 10 is out now.. but Select is a november release and vol 10 isn't till the end of feburary.. someone has messed up a little... either way, vol 11 will be August.. i'll have some information to add to the site on that one soon ^_^

Ladybird, Ladybird... what's that rhyme?
printable version
Added the first of the Ladybird book previews i got to do.. The Sonic the Hedgehog Joke Book! Warning- Very Bad Jokes!<br /><br />I am having a problem scanning some of the Ladybird ones because they use full bleed so a small amount of the image is hidden in the centre folding of the page.. and they are prefect bind so am NOT taking my books apart.. it's easyer with some then others so i'll just have to do my best ^_^
