Thanks, Ken Penders A new Archie Sonic blog

Postby Vampfox » Sun Dec 21, 2014 7:14 pm

Remember the "Moment of Archie Sonic" blog from a few years ago?
http://amomentofarchiesonic.tumblr.com/
This blog give us many laughs, and of course "Mighty Lips".

Well now their's a new Archie Sonic blog called "Thanks, Ken Penders" Don't let the name fool you. This blog is not just about Penders. It's a look back at the comic as a whole from the silly days up to the reboot universe.

Note this thread is for talking about the blog not Penders. I don't want this to get close. If it gets off topic I will ask to have it close.

I've started looking at it, seems pretty good so far, although you might want to put in a warning for swearing, a few have popped up in the blog posts :?

Wow, I need to reread my old comics. I can't believe I forgot that Robotnik knows who Alfred Hitchcock is.

This comic is so weird, I can't help but love it.

Image I really want to know what some of you who read this comic when it came out thought of this pannel. Did American fans even know about the whole "Eggman" thing back then.
Also:
It's only just occurring to me how bizarre and mixed up this comic is. It tries so hard to take itself seriously by having genuinely evil things occur, such as Robotnik being vaporized, but then it just has the characters go "oh that eggman again!"

That’s what happens when you combine the very dark backstory of SatAM and Ken Penders’s serious and overly complicated stories with other writers’ comics that treat the series like Dudley Do-Right meets TMNT
Best description of the comic ever.

Neat blog, but there are some odd mannerisms in the author's writing. Seems very "tumblr"

I always like seeing people go through the comics. Reminds me a bit of "the ride"

I've been following this blog for a while and I really enjoy it. Can't wait until the author gets to certain issues I remember being completely thrown by, just to see what they'll make of them.

I don't remember knowing about the Eggman name, myself. Or I just didn't think much of it. I was more confused as to why they'd show Robotnik there when he... you know, wasn't there.

Just par for the course for the checklist-based game adaptations of the day, I guess.

This may seem like an odd complaint, but this person makes posts way too frequently. I went and followed this blog and then suddenly, my front page was littered with these posts. If you're going through the entire series like this, it might be a bit better if you just did long posts for each issue rather than breaking it up like this. Like I'm just staring at a giant column of posts about the Tails Miniseries right now.

That's just my two cents. Great blog regardless.

Well Mike Gallagher's only a writer it would have been to much for him to know Writing Terms. :P

I kid I kid. I love Mike Gallagher but yeah that bugs me everytime.

Wow, you're right. Guess Ol' Robbie Nick doesn't know as much about Alfred Hitchcock as he thinks.
