NOTE: Quite a bit of cursing in this one.

My view on Ken Penders’ run is mixed. There were some general ideas he liked, especially his take on Knuckles that I guess makes sense seeing as this video says it came from an original idea he just tied the echidnas to. On the other hand there was a lot I didn’t like. The mad king, his treatment of Sally, Geoffrey St. John became so annoying I outright hated him. You’ll find some of the Penders run in reviews I made when the comics came out and I do plan to review all the other issues I have, and maybe even revisit those comics I did review, at the next opening after I finish the TRS-80/Tandy Computer Whiz Kids in “Yesterday’s” Comic. I’m wondering what will happen when I revisit the comic but I will pay more attention to when he takes over now than I did back then.
The part where he sued Archie to take complete control of his work and screw up the continuity I’m definitely not a fan of. I stopped reading when I decided they might never end the Mecha-Sally nonsense, so when they rebooted the Archie Sonicverse at the end of the second Mega Man crossover, that was a good time to just drop the title. Mega Man however I kept reading until I lost my job.
