A new week has arrived! A new world, in which somehow, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie just had the biggest domestic opening weekend of any video game movie ever. As a Sonic dork who has been following the character since, uh... reading a comic ad for the first game in a 1991 issue of Disney Adventures... it has been kind of surreal to see the character back on top as the number one anything.
And the best part? He even looks good! I mean, I know we all remember the horror that was his initial movie design. But I feel like even at the best of times, the "cartoon character comes to a live action world via CGI" genre rarely showcases the characters at their aesthetic best. The final movie Sonic, though? I admit, I'm probably a little biased because my buddy Tyson was the design lead, but I think it's one of the best designs the character has ever had. If Sonic is going to suddenly be plastered all over the place like it's 1992 again, I'm glad he gets to look nice while he does it.
Anyhow, enough Sonic nonsense. Come back on Wednesday for our next comic!
