SEGA has every right to have a say in Archie by *Vertekins

SEGA own Sonic. Archie does not.It’s one thing being disdainful of and not liking the sometimes questionable things that SEGA does regarding the comic. Which is your entire right, it’s an altogether different thing to act as if they have no rights whatsoever to dictate how their franchise is to be portrayed.It is SEGA’s inalienable and intrinsic right to dictate exactly how Archie are to portray and handle their characters and series. Too many times have I observed Archie fans pointing the finger at SEGA and making the company out to be some massive evil regarding the amount of control and influence it has over the comic when if anything, it is within their perfect right to do so as the owner of the Sonic franchise.
Another important point is that not everything that is ‘controversial’ in the comic is a result of SEGA’s ‘meddling’. Archie has been known to take independent decisions that have received lukewarm responses.Another thing is that Archie was allowed far too much liberty with this comic for far, far too long. When SEGA started becoming more authoritative regarding the portrayals of their characters and the way they are incorporated into stories, this needed to happen. Do you want to see more instances of ridiculous love dodecahedrons that take far too much precedence? How about spotlight-stealing hordes of Echidna’s who wrestle attention away from the main focus of the comics? What about characters having ridiculously over-exagerrated portrayals of emotion in the art? How about quality control regarding art so that you never see the likes of “Many Hands” again? - http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n35/barrett_toby/manyhandslol.jpgSEGA aren’t some monstrous entity just because they exert their authority regarding a licensed advertisement that features their beloved franchise.

SEGA aren’t some monstrous entity just because they exert their authority regarding a licensed advertisement that features their beloved franchise.

    SEGA had nothing to do with it, it was a choice by the writer he later regretted.

    I agree with this, but there are times I wish they had left the comic alone. Perhaps the worst change of a character was...

    In my opinion, I feel that SEGA’s “meddling” is actually doing the comic good.
