I wonder if Sega would really let this go. I mean sure they didn't create Anti-Sonic and stuff themselves, but if some crazy person managed to legally gain ownership of some spin off characters and an alternate version of Mario and Bowsers. I feel like Nintendo would make heads roll over it. I can't see a company as big as Sega just being okay with some crazy person owning a version of their mascot character Sonic and making cringey fan fictions using their character designs.

I wonder if they are just waiting for him to self publish his LSC comic and then just hit him with a ton of lawsuits when he likely won't have any money to counter it, because i can't see anyone buying his books outside of a few people who did it for the memes and the people who plan to scan it and post it online so no one else buys it.

He posted a shirt for LSC a while ago that was to be sold at CC2020. If he also already printed his books he could have really been counting on making some money at cons this year, but with COVID19 there wont be any cons this years. Once this all settles down 2021 might be the year Sega comes for this man.

Ken's interpretation of the echidnaEchyd'nya quills is that they're weird meat tendrils instead of keratin. This also leads to characters like Julie-Su having prosthetic robot hair.

"But that’s only skimming the surface. What’s up with the bizarre recurring themes in his stories? The obsession with rear end in a top hat dads? The weird attempts at mature themes? Dingo firing squads executing civilians? A cartoon bee dying from eating an LSD-laced chili dog? Distasteful allusions to the Holocaust? Implications that teenage Sonic characters were having sex off-screen? Why did any of this happen?"

The cartoon Bee tripping on Acid and some of the other shenanigans are known to me, but Dingo firing squads? wtf.

From what I remember, Ken had some contacts at the marketing and licensing arm of Sega America that put more faith in him than was warranted. He was legitimately in talks with his contacts to create an animated Sonic movie for a while, but it was just "talks". It's also why he was able to scuttle any attempts by Ben Hurst to make headway, because his contacts seemed to take Ken at his word for everything. He never actually had any traction that would get something greenlit, though.

After said contact(s) left, you stopped hearing Ken talk about his amazing Sonic movie story that was totally making progress, guys.

The movie didn't include Sonic's parents because not everyone has a pathological obsession with parents and bloodlines, ken.

Ironically, Sonic's backstory before the trailer backlash was actually closer to stuff Penders had done with Knuckles, where he was mysteriously orphaned and was basically a living chaos emerald.

Other than directly mentioning Chaos Emeralds, that seems to be exactly what his backstory is in the movie, too.

My secret shame is a sonic DVD set signed by ken penders. His site had a dvd & tshirt deal with a signed copy and it was one of the first places that sold the dvd's so I bought it. This was before the the whole lawsuit and heinous twitter activity and I just knew him as a guy who worked on the comics.

I'm still totally reading his not-knuckles comic if it ever comes out, though, because how could you not
