Veronica: I’m sure many people will get this obvious reference. For those who don’t, I am disowning you.

Don’t miss a thing!

Every Monday morning, we send thousands of BCB fans a week of pages, a note from the two of us and a shippy comic strip celebrating a random pairing of characters.

We’ll put the link your inbox straight away.

Weeeee! Sonic Reference FTW!

The people I know suck, they don’t even know there WAS a sonic movie. But there is and it and Metal Sonic are win.

and a quote or two…
“You’re the one who can fly! You do something!”
“Shut up! Heed Me!”

wait, actually my favorite chracter is Mike/possibly Abbey, but that could cause rumours pretty much identical to the Mike/Paulo hotel room incident :S

You know, I’m kinda surprised no one has pointed out Zachery (in the last panel) yet. that sort of mild foreshadowing usually gets noticed right quick. :P

Wow its a Sonic The Hedgehog movie reference o.0 only think different is that instead of running away from a hopped up owl in a crappy plane with a burned out engined yelling for help and getting told to shut up. She tells David to put on some pants which is so hilarious :D.
Ha Ha Ha I love saying things HOORAY FOR TALKING. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m a Sonic fan, yet I didn’t get the reference until reading the other comments. I always wanted to see the movie. So did my older brother. But we never did. :( We really need to one of these days.

I hate how Paulo is hitting on other people, yet he’s NOT hitting on Lucy. That ****** me off. Plus, shouldn’t David be praising him for returning to normal, or Tess getting onto him or something?

Speaking of David, I gotta love his enthusiasm and actions. :)

great day. the sonic the hedgehog movie. noticed as soon as i read the words “jet propelled body board”. i normally would be too young to have gotten that reference but almost ten years and that d@m^ blockbuster still has the original VHS of it. best movie ever. :D

I’ve just started ready these. Maybe for 48 hours? Whatever, but I love the characters, the story, everything! The only flaw is that the writing can be a bit difficult to read sometimes. An the sonic reference is the icing on the cake. I had that movie on VHS when I was like 5 and haven’t watched it since 7 but I remember almost all the lines. It made me a fan of sonic and then of comics. Going to find the movie now and watch it.

Eeeheheheh. A year late but what the hell. Second I saw that jet propelled bodyboard I’m like “YES.” Also helps that I only just watched that movie last night. Love this comic, been reading it since the beginning and I’m STILL NOT DONE. :|
