No.

I will be as clear as possible: the Sonic Underground story is planned to be a stand-alone, single-part story. Not an arc. One issue. Singular.

Huh. Wonder why Archie ever had plans to start a multi-part story right before the crossover.


They didn't. No one ever said that. What Ian said was that it makes more sense to do a single issue story in that space INSTEAD of breaking up an arc with the crossover. That's WHY it was going to be a single issue story and not part of an arc like every other SU story thus far. People seem to be reading the statement entirely backwards.

Well, that's what I get for reading too far into things. Sorry about that, gang.

Just one issue, feeling let down now.

Not to sound pessimistic, but I won't belive it until I see concrete evidence that its getting published, cause after so many broken promises from Archie I take everything they say about the comics with a grain of salt.

I need to stop writing with half a brain active, it’s not promises per say, but more stuff that have been spoken about to appear in the comics or events or setting as drummed up by the Archie staff that to me, never lives up to what was said or written.

But here goes, For 2012 we were promised a story dwelling into the background of Amy Rose, which to this date still haven't been done and now looks like it’s been forgotten about completely.

Then there was the story premise of Mecha-Sally being a major threat to the point of getting billed as the greatest evil on Mobius, which so far have been a flat out lie.

The genesis arc was to me presented as being a major world altering event which only had two lasting impacts, Mecha-Sally and giving a cause to present Nagus as a raving mad whatever he is and turn everyone against him.

2010 Had mentions about the comic going through great changes and events that would shift the status que of the entire comic around, but what happened was so centered around so few characters it just didn't live up to the premise of it.

I don't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think it's pretty obvious at this point that a lot of plans intended for the past year weren't able to come about as intended.

That said, the Sonic Underground story was always intended to be a single issue, and nothing said otherwise. The crossover schedule's been out for a while. It's not really anyone else's fault if baseless rumours and/or assumptions don't match up to the facts.

I understand that.

But it still feels like a kick in the face to have things promoted by the writer and an editor, with mentions made at a comic con of all places only for it to get put on hiatus (Underground) or just forgotten (Amy background story ) with barely any explantion for it.

It may be a cynical outlook on it, but you should always be prepared for a story to be put on hold. It's disappointing, but I seriously doubt that Archie is pulling the rug out from under their fans just for the sake of trolling.

Things change, and unfortunately the sonic underground story was one of them. it's not gone for good yet, so there is still hope. it's just later down the line.

Speaking of Underground, did anyone have their own idea of how they'd want to see the series end?

My headcanon was that Aleena also had a musical instrument, but what that was I was never sure about. i think i settled on an electric violin.

I really like the sound of that idea, actually.

I've honestly never really thought about how Sonic Underground could conclude in a mere 20 pages. I mean, just catching up with their mother could be an issue in itself. I'm guessing it'll just be a quick reuniting (a la Knuckles and his dad in Knuckles #25) and a quick final mission to take down Robotnik once and for all.

Indeed. The thing to remember first and foremost is that this is business, and pretty much all other considerations must be secondary, as ridiculous and painful as it can be sometimes.
