Just woken up, had a long day at work and the rest was much needed for more on-stage work tomorrow for the next few days! Resting the vocals is paramount for this job and I'm started to learn the limits of my projection on stage per shift which has been an enlightening experience.
Nevertheless it's raining outside in the evening, one of my favourite feelings of the day, and I just got on and found out that my friend Tasha's (aka Donniegirl12 - my go to for Tails' voice and she also voiced as Freki recently on the NORDGUARD the Movie project). Do check it out as she is considered in my books to have some of the best audio productions in the realm of comic drams (most of them being Archie Comic's Sonic the Hedgehog/SONIC UNIVERSE series).
The character that I played is slowly becoming a bad-ass... (I still haven't read book three or four yet so I'm sure he's got his reasons for his behaviour towards the end of book two). I mean look at him!
*DUN DUN DUUUUUUN!*
"You got any last words for me... Punk?" He's doing a dirty Harry over there mate!
Nevertheless do check out Tasha's latest comic drama, you won't be disappointed! In fact, I'm going to do that right after I finished writing this journal - there is one last thing to point out and that's the recent post on TSSZ news on Archie Publications sales figures on the comic book series (post-reboot). You can read all about it here but I shall share with you my personal thoughts.
I used to have that complete optimism for the series where regardless of how good or bad the comic is making it's run for it's money but you know what, I'm keeping an open mind this time.
Keep in mind that the figures you see up there are sales figures from DIRECT DISTRIBUTION to mainstream comic book stores (of all sizes from across the United States). The sales, from my assumption, are not a complete reflection as we have yet to consider distribution through magazine stands at giants like WAL-MART and digital sales through e-commerce. However if you use these figures to compare to what's out now - February 2015 Comic Book Sales Figures - you'll get an idea of what they're up against in the competitive comic book/graphic novel industry.
I'd say they are hitting the mid-minor-to-low range in comparison to the other IP's available - is this a good sign or not for the future out Sonic Archie comics? Well it's something for you to think about.
I believe it's surviving on four factors:
i) It's Sonic, the IP in itself is hugely recognised worldwide and it's been going on for over 20 years. Every kid on the block should recognise his face. ii) Pre-Genesis Wave era (starting from the time team Ian/Tracey/Paul was on). iv) The quality in the artwork has improved by miles when compare to the golden age stuff. iii) Worlds Collide IP
Now that you have some info equipped I can share with you my thoughts on how the series (based on the figures) is going.
So far what I've read in the past 6 months, it just doesn't have the same magic as it did pre-Genesis wave. I remember vividly that I've always looked forward to purchasing the comics at the comic book store in person and proudly unwrapping it at home and reading it in my favourite spot over a nice cuppa. I smiled at the fact that I'm a proud fan of the series and that I support the artists and publishing team every step of the way... Until my experience in the United States.
After coming back to Australia I've been trying to generate the same magic in hopes to embrace the stories and new content post-Genesis Wave and sad to say that I'm in line with some friends who don't find the characters or stories as exciting or that great as all.
With respects, Archie Publications has done ALOT to get it's two feet back into the game post-Genesis Wave, no doubt about that, but in my opinion it's going to take some time before it may perhaps reproduce the same magic as I once saw in the series.
Also, there have been people asking me on my thoughts on World's Collide - I'm not interested in that concept to be honest and I'm certainly not looking forward to the next. I'm an adult fan of the good stories that came out during the Ian/Tracey/Paul era... Like just when we were going to find out if Team Freedom and Fighters will bring Sally back from robotisation, and how will that collide with the conflict that Silver has in tracking down and eliminating the traitor; the Secret Freedom Fighters, the Mercian Freedom Fighters, Knuckles saga, St. Geoffrey and how he may get out of that horrible curse that is Ixis Naugus playing host in his body - and perhaps his wife Hershey Cat may have been key to breaking that curse (I had a feeling she wasn't dead, yet).
So there you have it, that's my two cents on the matter for the moment.
Oh and don't even mention about SONIC BOOM the comic, I've unsubscribed it last week. It's great with the kiddies but it sure didn't stick with me for long. Here's hoping that the following issues of 'Sonic the Hedgehog' and 'SONIC UNIVERSE' will get me back in a healthy mindset to continue supporting the series.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the subject, I'm curious to learn what you guys think on Archie Publication's Sonic the Hedgehog comic series!
