new publishing

Welp, it’s official.

If you haven’t heard the news, as of today (July 17th) it’s official that Sega has terminated their partnership with Archie Comics, meaning that after over 500 issues, this incarnation of the Sonic comics has come to an end

I figure I should say something since I run this sporadically updated blog about the franchise, huh

This is sad news. I don’t think it’s hitting me as hard as a sudden cancellation would be, though, just because the writing’s kind of been on the wall for the last few months. The comics have been on indefinite hiatus, and the creative team has been looking for work elsewhere. And while this is an abrupt end with no closure for the story, these comics lasted several hundred issues longer than anyone could’ve ever imagined. Seriously, comics based on video games just don’t last this long. It’s a miracle that we had a continuous run of Sonic comics from one publisher for 25 years. But it’s still a shame that such a legendary series had to go out like this

While I’m still nowhere near caught up on the comics, they meant a lot to me personally. They helped me get into video games as a kid, and had a huge impact on my art and writing at that age. It’s hard to pinpoint a chain of cause and effect like that, but who knows? Maybe I wouldn’t be here making a video game about gay anthropomorphic animals today if it weren’t for the furry melodrama of the Archie Sonic comics

My heart goes out to the creative team laid off due to Archie’s poor business practices. While the comics certainly had a rocky history, they’d found a passionate and incredibly talented creative team that gave us some really wonderful comic books. I hope that they can find work elsewhere–maybe even on Sonic comics for a new publisher like IDW or Boom, if Sega takes Sonic elsewhere

Even if that doesn’t happen, I wish them luck with their future endeavors. I’m sure they’ll make great things

RIP Archie Sonic, 1992 - 2017

Humans have created 9 billion tons of plastic in less than 70 years

  • Nine billion tons is one of those numbers that’s tricky to wrap a human brain around. It’s 45,000 blue whales or 3,370 of the heaviest thing the Guinness record crew has ever weighed or 24.5 Empire State Buildings.
  • According to a new estimate published in the journal Science Advances, that’s how much plastic we’ve created since we started mass producing the ubiquitous group of compounds during the 1950s.
  • The team of environmental scientists was able to gather a family portrait — not just familiar faces like polystyrene, polyethylene and polyester fibers, but even coatings and other varieties that are less commonly tracked. Read more (7/19/17)

But why did Saskia feel the need to publish that. Did a new article publish again or was this a response to Dan's tomfoolery.

I really don’t know why she published it. My guess is just that she was getting hate on Twitter because she interviewed larries for her article about Louis. Cris (@business-direction) might know since she’s one of the people that was interviewed. 


I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.

If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining.  Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories. 

(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more)
