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!”

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. :|
