>>111269757>What would the Sonic comics need to do to interest you?
Stop with this arc. Get cancelled.
Reboot as a completely original action/comedy/adventure that pays homage to the various incarnations of the source material while also being it's own thing that introduces readers young and old to the meta-mythology of Sonic The Hedgehog. Followed by spin-off minis with popular and obscure characters.
Or just get Waren Ellis to write and have him go full Nextwave on this spiney bitch. I'd buy that for a dollar or 4.>What do you think they should do to capture a broader audience?
Honestly: Don't make it Modern Sonic. I'm genuinely surprised they went this route for the reboot.
I love the dude, but he has waaay too much baggage that only appeals to furries and weebs.
This is why IDW Sonic is more comparative to horse-comic than anything else in their library - it's too tied to the fandom to appeal to an audience that has no interest in "MUH EPIC LORE" and just wants to "go fast" & all about "muh Genesis days".
Just grab what remains of Sonic Mega Drive, finish the damn thing and turn that into a monthly/bi-monthly.
Granted, a comic like that is not sustainable for an ongoing and it won't be the most engaging comic on the stands - but casuals don't buy Sonic comics cuz they good, they buy Sonic comics for easy, fun disposable adventures simply for the novelty if anything. That will guarantee instant dosh.
Or make porn and sell it for ridick prices on furry cons, like everyone is saying.
