Group Info

:flagus:Welcome to the group dedicated to the first and true Sonic canon; the American/Original side of Sonic the Hedgehog. This includes American Sonic games, SEGA of Americas work that was put into the games, AoStH, Sonic SatAM, Sonic Underground, and Sonic the Hedgehog (Comics). Anyone is welcome to join if they like the original continuity of Sonic the Hedgehog. Lets do it to it, time to bring the original canon back!:flagus:

The American Sonic is THE classic Sonic of the 90's, the original. Made and released before the Japanese Sonic. The sprites you see in the very first Sonic games are based off the American Sonic design which was created by Madeline Schroeder & Greg Martin, former members of Sega of America. Without the American Sonic, Sonic the Hedgehog would of never been successful at all which would lead to a sooner downfall of SEGA. The Japanese Sonic coming to America in 1998 almost killed SEGA all together. The Japanese Sonic was the reason why SEGA had been beat by Nintendo.

Sega was owned and made by SEGA of America in the 80's it is not a Japanese company.

"Sega started off life under the name of "Service Games", originating in Hawaii in 1945 when Irving Bromberg and his son, Martin Jerome Bromberg, formed a partnership with James L. Humpert to manufacture and distribute slot machines and other coin-operated devices. They called the partnership Service Games and based their operation in Honolulu. "

"Sonic was born in the image of the United States. I love American Sonic. Thank you." - Ohshima Naoto

Sonic the Hedgehog™, Sega's blue dude with a 'tude, debuted in the original game Sonic the Hedgehog™ for the SEGA Genesis™ system in June of 1991. That game was the beginning of many long struggles between Sonic and his arch enemy, Dr. Ivo Robotnik™, a mad scientist who snatches innocent animals and turns them into evil robots.

If you're not too familiar with Sonic, he's the hero of Mobius™, a very peaceful world. He's especially known for his quick wit, and fast feet. Whenever Mobius is threatened, Sonic's the hedgehog to call.

The second incredible game in the world of Sonic was Sonic the Hedgehog 2™, which introduced Miles "Tails" Power, the fox. Tails is Sonic's friend and likes to be just like Sonic. He always tries to keep up with him, but sometimes Sonic is too super fast. Whenever Sonic bursts into super speed and takes off, Tails whirls his two tails like a helicopter and takes off flying after him. One of the coolest things about Sonic 2 was that you could play as either Sonic or Tails, and even play against your friends in split-screen 2-player mode.

Another famous character in the world of Sonic the Hedgehog™, is Knuckles the Echidna™, who is strong, athletic and clever. Knuckles first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 3™. Dr. Robotnik, the ever-present trouble-maker, tricked Knuckles into thinking that Sonic and Tails were the ones trying to steal the emeralds, when of course, it was really Robotnik himself. Knuckles believed Robotnik's lies, and spent most of his time blocking Sonic's path, creating extra obstacles, setting traps and trying to steal Sonic's gold rings. Bet you didn't know that Knuckles' favorite food is fruit (especially grapes).

The Sonic the Hedgehog American and European box art illustrator Greg Martin had passed away in May of last year. While the news is delayed, the sadness many SEGA fans are surely feeling has not diminished. Greg Martin may not be a name fans recognize, but as soon as you see his work you’d instantly know his style. His SEGA career spanned the 90′s, with his art appearing on the covers of the SEGA Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog titles, Shining in the Darkness, Landstalker, Pac-Attack, and many more. Outside of SEGA, Greg did work for franchises including The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Batman, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Winnie the Pooh, The Jetsons, and Looney Tunes. You can see more of his work at his official website www.gregmartinstudio.com/. Our thoughts are with Greg Martin’s family, he truly was a legend.

:iconminisonicplz:Here Are The Rules (so far)::iconminiknucklesplz:
the first rule now do not shoot japanese sonic in our face
:bulletblue:All art sent must have something to do with the American Sonic canon
:bulletblue:Submit your art in the proper folder. If the artwork features more then one character (Example: Sonic & Tails, Sally & NICOLE, Group pic, ect) submit it under "Multiple Characters". Canon Couples can be submitted under the folder titled, "Canon Couples". If you fail to submit to the right folder, chances of it being accepted is slim.
:bulletblue:No deviations containing pornography / nude / partially nude / scantily clad content (standard Sonic characters with shoes or gloves or whatever are fine, of course)
:bulletblue:No gay/yaoi and no lesbian/yuri pictures!
:bulletblue:No spamming
:bulletblue:If sending in artwork with a Japanese Sonic character or non Sonic character, it must have at least one American Sonic character, stage/zone/location or concept in it, or must be drawn in the American Sonic style if it's just one of those characters who became part of American Sonic's continuity via transfer between the two branches
:bulletblue: No bashing or hating others' opinions as long as they respect your own, for we must remember this is not a hate group, but a group to show the positives of the American side of Sonic
:bulletblue: All couples' pictures must be canonical to the American Sonic continuities, must involve characters within the American Sonic continuities, and must be done tastefully
:bulletblue:Fan Characters are not allowed (unless there's a canon American Sonic character within the picture somewhere)
:bulletblue:No complaining about the rules

we've literally broken classic sonic's petition! Sweating a little... :D (Big Grin)

1114 to 1160(and still counting)

old petition for Classic Sonic: www.tssznews.com/2010/02/09/pe…
------------------------
For those interested, here's the petition: www.change.org/p/archie-comics…

The site for the group is at : save-archie-sonic.deviantart.c…
------------------------
The group name may say "Save Archie Sonic", but do you think its more like "Save Sonic's Multivers" or "Bring Sonic's Multiverse Back... to the franchise"?

Considering its really all of Sonic's & Classic Sonics Dimensions that are being abused, neglected, and ignored, Especially after the multiverse crash in the comics, which is really kinda anti-generations for a lot of the classic sonic veterans?

Is there anyone running this group anymore? I have deviation submissions that have not been responded to in months. I think the moderators are asleep at the wheel here.
