Our Lord and Savior, the true creator and father of Knuckles the Echidna, and the savior of the Sonic series, Ken Penders is a fantastic being. Through his masterful writing on Archie Sonic, Ken was able to elevate Sonic beyond it's failure as a videogame, and created something truly groundbreaking and ahead of it's time. It can be said that Ken's tenure on the Archie Sonic series was the best years of Sonic the Hedgehog.
However, the vile creature Ian Flynn seduced Archie and caused Penders to leave the comic. Soon they degraded in quality, and eventually died. Ian Flynn still seeks to continue his villainous ways at IDW. Despite all this however, Ken was able to save some characters from those bastards at Archie during his court case against them. Penders is truly a man who thinks for the fans.
Currently Ken Penders is working on THE REPUBLIC™ (2018), as well as THE LARA-SU CHRONICLES™ (2018), which will be released on an app with full voice acting. Ken is breaking new ground here, and will shape the comics industry once more.
I would recommend reading the chapters regarding the vengeful spirit, otherwise known as Ben Hurst. It follows the conception of Sonic Armageddon and is quite an enlightening read.
