Hello everyone! You can call me SonicWindAttack, and as my first post here I wanted to share a huge project that I've been a part of for a while. That project is Archie Sonic Online, a fan-driven continuation of the old universe of the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics, aka the Pre-Super Genesis Wave timeline. Since I remember this website used to share the Archie Sonic comics online for free, I thought this might be a good place to spread the word about it. We're a non-profit group dedicated to continuing the story of Archie Sonic before the 2013 reboot, by making an independent comic series not associated with Archie Comics, SEGA, Sonic Team, or any of the used element's creators. Our current plan is to wrap up the storylines involving Mecha Sally and King Naugus, then continue with our own original story ideas from that point onward. We currently have 4 separate comics in production:
1. Mobius Legends, a collection of non-canon test stories in order to train the writers and artists for the real deal.
2. Sonic the Hedgehog Online, our continuation of the "Sonic the Hedgehog" comic series, starting from issue 248 onward. We'll be picking up from the end of #247, minus the Genesis Wave, and continue the story from there.
3. Sonic Universe Online, our continuation of the "Sonic Universe" comic series, starting from issue 50 onward (the original Sonic Universe #50 involving Shard and Metal Sonic will be retconned for our version of the story). We will start off with a conclusion to the "Sonic Underground" series as was the original intention for the official comic, then start a new arc starring Bunnie D'Coolette and work from there.
4. Knuckles: Endangered Species, a rewrite of the original "Endangered Species" arc in the official Sonic comics. Due to legal issues, the original arc was forced to be heavily edited, much to the dismay of many fans. So we are going to be making our own version, replacing issues 244-246 of the official comic (#243 will not be rewritten as it was not heavily affected by the aforementioned legal issues) for our project. We plan to include all of the characters that were forced to be written out of the original arc, and deliver a much more satisfying conclusion to the story. This may or may not lead to more Knuckles miniseries in the future, nothing is set in stone yet.
In order to accomplish these daunting tasks, we have assembled a team of talented writers and artists to work on these stories. They will be made like an official comic, with our scripts first being written and edited, then penciled, inked, colored and lettered. This is obviously a time-consuming process, but it is our hope that it will be worth the wait. As one of the writers for the project, I can safely say we have some very cool stuff planned, and am looking forward to showing it off to the public. It should be stressed that this project is not being made out of spite for the reboot of the official comic, we just want to be able to continue a story that we feel wasn't given a proper conclusion. We currently have two issues of Mobius Legends finished, with a third one soon on the way, and we're also fairly close to finishing StHO #248. You can check out everything we have over at our website, http://archiesoniconline.com/. I'll wrap this up with a sneak peek of the cover for 248:
Thanks for listening, and happy reading!
