Sonic IDW petition plug with Sonic and Sally Acorn by dth1971 Sonic IDW petition plug with Sonic and Sally Acorn by dth1971
Using an image of Sonic and Sally from a circa 2016 Archie Sonic comic book (From about the last year Archie had the rights to Sonic the Hedgehog), Sonic and Sally do a plug for Change.org where my petition to get Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters in the April 2018 IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comic book launch (despite IDW still hush-hush for now about the Freedom Fighters fate - stay tuned, y'know!).

And here is the link to where the petition is: www.change.org/p/idw-publishin…

On November 18, 2017: I printed from the internet the petition and signatures and sent it snail mail to IDW Publishing in San Diego. Let's hope they see the 100 signature goal I got from it so they can agree on getting Sally Acorn at the April 2018 IDW Sonic comic book relaunch.

you right, it's just these characters have been gotten alot of love to sonic fans, and we don't want them to be forgotten, Sega of America cares about them.

Too bad Sega of Japan (the real Sega) doesn't care.

Probably would be better if they're not because they already made the mistake of hiring Flynn and that already means it's even more unlikely that we'll have their true forms depicted rather than those shitty new designs they dumped on us. There's even a distinct possibility that if this does have any of them, it'll be in the SGW era which I'm 100% against and despise.

I don't. Him and Ben Bates were two of my least favorite artists right up there with Jon Gray. I can't stand the super-toony look the comic devolved into. Just glad I didn't have to see the redesigns in a more serious style Butler, Axer, or Spaz.

But Ken Penders did get impeached from Archie Sonic and took his characters (some to move to his self published Lara-Su Chronicles) with him.

What about the first 2 Sonic artists when Archie launched its Sonic comic book in 1992-1993: Scott Shaw(!) and Dave Manak?

I'm well aware of the zany stuff of the days of old but at the same time the comic was being written almost like if AoStH had a baby with the precursor of Sonic Boom but based on SatAM. It was directly aimed at kids and looked the way it read i.e. goofy and for lol's. So I didn't mind those guys but equally don't missed them. I recognize Manak's name and always got him, Manny Galan, and Mike Gallagher confused given the similar names.

As long as something like their old looks were used. But I loved the growth the characters had took by the time of Endgame. Frankly, Flynn is not qualified for this franchise.

I think we have a good chance of Sally and the freedom fighters being in the new book.  If nothing else having Ian Flynn hired as head writer for it gives me hope.  He is a huge fan of the freedom fighters and the old SatAM cartoon.  I hope IDW just gives him free reign.

You do realize that online petitions don't work right?
If they did we would've gotten Season 3 of SatAM, Sonic Adventure 3, a finale to Sonic Underground, Season 4 of Sonic X, and then old Archie-Sonic universe back.
But the petitions for all those things didn't work, even with so many signatures.

Sega just doesn't care.
Let them do what they want and move on already.

Steven Scott (Head of the IDW media department or something like that)

This is for IDW's April 2018 Sonic comic book relaunch, not for Sega nor DHX (formerly DIC/Cookie Jar - DHX does the My Little Pony cartoons on Discovery Family as well as working on the recent MLP movie*) nor Archie comics. It's for IDW!

Doesn't matter what company its for, cuz online petitions don't work, so just give up with this freedom fighter cause already. Cuz this is an unhealthy obsession.
Doesn't matter if its directed to SEGA, DiC/Cookie Jar/DHX, Archie, or IDW, petitions don't work, cuz they DO NOT CARE.

And who or what the hell is fremantle media?

Yeah, this guy really has a unhealthy obsession about bringing back Sally Acorn and such. I told him to calm down and tone it down on the obsession but he didn't listen. And I thought Bwrosas was bad. And yeah, I'm not into those petitions made by fans. If it was created by an actual company like when SEGA and Sumo Digital thing did that voting poll for what DLC character they want to see in SEGA All Stars Racing: Transformed, then it would be interesting. But if it's created by some random guy who wants to bring back the mascot for Honeycomb cereal or something like that, it's just a waste of time because 95% of these kind of petitions don't work. Even when they reach the goal they're like "yeah we did it...... now what?" And with the bad rep some petitions have gotten in the past, it doesn't help either.

I read a tweet somewhere where he says that he doesn't like someone talking about the possibility of Sally Acorn not appearing in IDW Sonic, and even though some guy tried to help calm him down, Dth just flat out blocked him on Twitter. Which pretty much proves that he can't handle other peoples opinions. Yep, he's one of thooooooose.

Dude, seriously, please do yourself a favour and improve your own image before you judge him. What you were saying about him actually basically describes yourself more.

You act the exact same thing with the pestering, but you do it worse. Unlike him, you friggin push it to death to something and you blow a damn gasket if someone expresses an opinion you don't like.

at least whatever he does, DT comes off as being more reasonable and more grace in what he is doing and doesn't do anything provocative.


I know this may hurt, but that is the cold hard truth
Reply
:iconnintrendodude:
Except how am I doing it worse if you don't mind my asking?
And when have I pushed anything to death? I have not gone to the extent he has in pestering IDW and Sega on an almost regular basis, or petitions that are destined to fail.
The furthest I've ever made is one or 2 tweets trying to attempt to get a different writer that isn't ian Flynn be it someone new or a different Archie-Sonic alumni.

Explain to me how DT is the more reasonable and graceful one please. Cuz Its hard for me to see that what with all the times he's left comments on posts of mine repeating the same stuff over and over again, saying he wants sally to come back.
Look, I get it, people are worried about the fate of the freedom fighters, I am as well since i love SatAM and the Archie-Sonic series. But I guess I'm a tad more pessimistic Cuz realistically Sega of Japan doesn't care about the american continuity.
Plus at the IDW-Sonic panel they kept dodging the topic of freedom fighters and talking about all the game material is usable, not only that but one of ian Flynn's podcasts he said he had to fight tooth and nail to keep the freedom fighters just for the reboot.
I'm just following a realistic sense of logic and going off of the sources of evidence I have. BUT I would like to be proven wrong and see them play a major role.

Not only that, but someone I wanna see come back in the comics, is Mighty the armadillo, but you don't see me petitioning or pestering IDW and Sega to ensure he comes back, no, cuz I'm being patient. If he's in it, cool, if he isn't, oh well he had a good run in Archie. Same can be said with the ff, if they are in it, cool, of they aren't oh well cuz they had a long run from 1992 to 2016, which is a really long time to remain some sort or relevance.

Um, Penderdome, you trying to push that IDW rep to talk to penders, etc. and stuff like that.

At one time, you tweeted something on the lines directly to IDW reagrding something like please bring back Ken penders and not Flynn, which even Ken told you off. And looking at his tweets, i don't see DT lose his temper like with you, especially 
if someone say anything opposite to your opinionHe doesn't push it far too. Seriously, how can you possibly understand since you don't even know why you get blocked most of the time. And I should have said he was more respectful

No, i didn't mean fictional characters, i meant you losing your temper that Penders is not working at IDW on Sonic. Liking Ken Penders is fine, but you you go way beyond that and it is more of an over-obsession. 

"The furthest I've ever made is one or 2 tweets trying to attempt to get a different writer that isn't ian Flynn be it someone new PR a different Archie-Sonic alumni."

Oh, i am definitely sure it was waaaay more than 2 tweets.

"Explain to me how DT is the more reasonable and graceful one please. Cuz Its hard for me to see that what with all the times he's left comments on posts of mine repeating the same stuff over and over again, saying he wants sally to come back." 

"Look, I get it, people are worried about the fate of the freedom fighters, I am as well since love SatAM and the Archie-Sonic series. But I guess I'm a tad more pessimistic Cuz realistically Sega of Japan doesn't care about the american continuity."

You don't know whether or not they will appear. How do i know that it is not part of your usual rage about not having Ken back?

Just shut it. They didn't even have reliable internet back then. Email took days, and hardly anyone was aware of SATam's existence. What made you think anyone was going to gather together any Sonic fanbase during those times?!

Uh, except what i said had nothing to do with emails. It has do to with online petitions. Online petitions don't work or ever persuade big professional companies.

I'm aware emails were slow back in the day, but that is completely unrelated to what I'm talking about in regards to what DTH has been doing in demanding and harassing IDW and Sega to bring sally into the IDW comics.


But as I said before, sonic fans have petitioned for stuff before: www.gopetition.com/petitions/s…

Email is the only way to contact SEGA and present the petition where they can see it, without yakking off at customer support, you fool. You've never tried, so exactly what would you know about all companies?

Yes, it is.
