Hey guys, this is Mixedfan8643 with a journal entry that is STRICTLY ONLY FOR ARCHIE SONIC FANS. NO ARCHIE SONIC HATERS ALLOWED IN THIS JOURNAL. OK?

Anyhow, since the Mecha Sally arc is sadly drawing to a close (that's how much I love it, I'm sad it's over) I thought I'd ask you Archie Sonic fans this. What has been YOUR favourite part of the saga? What's been your favourite issue and what do you like the most about this epically underrated saga? I personally say:

Favourite part: All the character development, the epic twists and the world tour we've been getting
Favourite issue(s): Issues 231, 234, 241 and 243-246
What I like the most about it: The sheer epicness of it all that's made it a joy to read and a pleasure to wait for the next issue. I love how Ian Flynn took a lot of risks and twisted a lot of turns to give us a new story for Sonic the Hedgehog and open up doors for new stories in the future.

So what have you Archie Sonic fans got to say? Do leave a comment or two below and express your feelings on this saga of epicness! :D

Well that's it from me, this is Mixedfan8643 signing out.

I don't really have a favorite issue with the latest arc. It was pretty solid overall. I'm really curious about how the entire issue is going to be resolved though, with the new genesis wave hitting the world and the small megaman crossover. Even though ian is a great writer he sometimes drops the ball with tying up the ending of an arc.(For example.The entire nicole forgave mina almost instantly dispite helping to make her life hell did seem a bit unsatisfying to me.) Still, I'm looking forwards to it!

I also enjoyed Sonic 235 and 236. They really stand out to me. I liked how Ian showed the emotion and heart break in Sonic 235. It made me really care about the characters and it also helped the impact of Dr. Eggmans comback from the count down in 224 to the aftermath of 230. His take on Tails conversation with his dad was spot on and I love that scene where it had Sonic shut in his room with him playing his guitar as he thought about Antoine & the times where he teased him and joke with him and it made him feel guilty. It showed that Sonic has a 3 dimensional personality. Just think Sonic is the kind of guy that will not cry but he is expressing his hurt in a different way which is playing his guitar with his bedroom door shut not wanting to talk to anyone. Just think your good friend who risked his life for the real king is hurt and you feel bad about all the times you've teased him. I liked the way he showed even compasion for Amy when she was crying and wanting to help Sonic feel better. I also liked the part where Sonic spin dashed Silver when he accused Antoine of being the traitor. -To sum it all up together the character reactions were all spot on to me, because of their personalities in the past it seems they acted like they all were supposed to act. No out of character moments or no over the dramatic moments here. Ian wrote it just right.

I loved it when despite the city turning on Nicole, Rotor stood up for her and Nicole cried happy tears. Loved that moment. Unlike the stupid trend that the SatAM Purists and Ian haters a like that said that Sonic gave up in 236, I actually read the very next thing that Sonic said and it wasn't him giving up. It was him coming with a plan for another approach. Serously was it that hard? They read that one bubble and quit reading?

I also enjoyed the idea of the Secret Freedom Fighters. When I heard that I was like, "Ah, yeah!"-That was pretty clever. I never thought of that. I also thought it was pretty clever with the aftermath of Robotnik's Genesis wave and how it affected Ixis Naugus with the 3 spirits inside him tormenting him.

I don't like Hershey the cat, but I was willing to see what Ian had for us with that, but thanks to Ken and Sega Ian had to change a lot of things. The arc could have been even more awesome, but I still enjoyed it. The awesome Knuckles and thrash fight was pretty sick. It's just that I wish Ben Bates, Jamal Peppers, of Spaz could have drawn more comics, because I can't stand Steven Butler's art.
Sonic Unviverse was perfect. 10 out of 10 writing from Ian. Dr. Eggman, Mighty, and Babylon arcs were just perfect.

The plant being use to deroboticize Sally was pretty was pretty, clever as well.

Ian is an awesome writer. I hope he stays on for a long time and if he doesn't, Tracy Yardley should come on board. I loved the Babylon Rouges arc.

Those are very good moments and very well spoken Ezekiel. Your reasons are legit and very well put together. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I hate how people thought Sonic was giving up in 236, he wasn't. Those guys are idiots.

I'm glad Hershey wasn't in the arc. She's a useless character anyway. I'm glad that despite all the meddling, you're still enjoying the arc buddy.

I agree on that.

I agree on that too. I don't know why some people aren't buying it or think it's "deus-ex-machina" because it isn't. Far from it.

You said it, Ian Flynn is an awesome writer and I hope he stays on too. I don't think he's going anywhere any time soon so don't worry, we'll get plenty more awesomeness from him.

I am sorry I didn't get back to you. It's been a tough week for me. My grandmother passed and it' s been taking me a while to get over it.

Ian is such a great writer, he can work with even some Ken's characters except for the Knuckle recolors. The way Ian wrote Shard was amazing. I never thought that he would be that popular. Fans love Shard. Even though I am glad that Hershey is gone and that I can't stand her. Ian had plans with her and the others and I believed the comio could have been better, but it is still awesome none the less.

I don't like how people are just hating on Ian about this arc. It's still enjoyable, but if there is anyone that should be blamed on disrupting what was supposed to be Ian's mater piece it is the mettling of both Ken Penders and Sega. Sorry, I keep repeating myself. It's just I am so angry at Ken and Sega. I just want to get it off my chest. Uggh!!!!

Still loving your reviews, bro. Your probably quite possibly one of the best reviewers of the Sonic comic that I have ever seen, especially with your latest entry. Your top 15 whew that look it took a doozy to write. I respect you for that. Keep it up, dude!

Oh...oh dear. I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope you're OK now and my condolences to your grandmother.

I agree on that. Ian made some of Ken and Karl's characters more likeable than before like Geoffrey St. John, Dr. Fintievus, Mina Mongoose, Julie-Su, Dimitri and more. Sadly, he couldn't improve Lien-Da or the other echidnas, I'm glad they're gone. Same with Hershey, she's just wasting space in the comic. I will agree the arc could have been even better but I don't blame characters being removed for that.

Yeah, I can't stand it ethier. Why is Ian Flynn blamed for EVERYTHING when it's not always his fault? Heck, Ian Flynn hasn't done anything wrong! Ken Penders he other hand, every bad thing that happens in the comic is always his fault.

Thank you so much, I'm glad you think that. I do consider myself to be one of the best reviewers of the Sonic Comics out there, mainly because I'm not pessimistic, I have logic and actually think about what I've read instead of voer-analyzing every thing and finding plot-holes that don't exist. I have more logic and common sense in one gigabit then the whole Anti-Archie Sonic Club has in their entire computers My top 15 did take a while to write but I'm very pleased with it. I'm glad you liked it.

So which bits do you agree with the most?

When you ever get bored, if your interested, you should check out cArDoNaNaVaS Shadamy comic called, "Just Shadamy" here on deviantart. I honestly didn't think it was going to be that good. It's very well written with a lot of heart and thought put into it like a really good adult Novel. It's probably not your cup of tea, but it's really good.

I would have commented, but then I realized that my comment would be way to huge to put on here. And then I realized that today is Wednesday and I normally like to change my Journal entry every Wednesday. Random Rant Wednesdays. That's what I call them. Everything I have to say on the arc can be found here. [link]

But as a brief summery, I like the plot, I like Shard, I like the way Eggman acts, I like the fact that They're making me care about the characters.

I've seen it.

Those are good reasons. :thumbsup: I'm glad you like them, shows you have better taste then the haters. And the fact you're a Fleetway fan too shows that unlike Vorahk295, you're not a biased Fleetway Sonic fanboy and can actually appreciate both comics.

Yay, I'm not biased! I like both. How wonderful is that? And I already know I'm smarter then haters, because I can see more then just the bad side. If you look at only the bad side of things, well, you're going to have a bad time. Gotta look at the bright side too.
