Sonic the Hedgehog

For whatever reason, there has been a bajillion shows and comics about Sonic the Hedgehog. Heck, they recently gave him yet another one! And to make things even crazier, they’re all vastly different in tone, quality, and style! No one knows why so many people think Sonic is such a marketing goldmine, but the boys at the Other Side figured they’d hunker down and check ’em all out. Listen in to find out which ones are terrible, which ones are pretty good, and which one is so great Cody gives it a glowing recommendation!

    If Robo Sonic was psychic maybe he saw the future of the fandom and tried to destroy everything to stop this madness before it really took off.

    Batman even had a retcon rape. Some genius at DC even thought that it would be a good idea to make Batman say he liked it. DC really needs a new reboot.

    • WHAT IS IT WITH DC AND RAPE?!?!?!?!?!

      • Normality

        Haven’t you heard? Rape’s the new “Dead Parents”.

    Can’t believed you didn’t mentioned the PenderGate: were the continuity you mentioned got retconned to SeGa’s liking after the lawsuit that Pender had with Archie opened a floodgate of potential lawsuits with Archie’s previous writers since they lost the contracts to all of them except for Flynn’s. The retcon happened after the Megaman Sonic Crossover.

  • Not having listened to this yet, I suppose you might also cover the recent “Blue Arm Bandit” variant a swell.

    The only good Sonic made was the one a pal of mine worked on (Milton Knight).

    We really do live in some interesting times when a sonic property is saved from doom by a former sonic degenerate. I heard rumors of his past about how he used to RP with an OC, a Potos if I remember right. There were even some chat logs floating around 4chan a couple of years back. Now I’m really curious to know what happened to him between that time and now, what brought him back from the abyss that many enter and so few return?

    so apparently the creator of rwby just died……

  • Joshua S.

    I liked how you compared two characters from separate works. I liked how the main character from the webcomic disliked by the podcasters is way less successful than the antagonist from the comic book series based on a video game.

  • The only good Archie comic made was one not by Archie, but a parody that MAD published written by the seldom forgotten Harvey Kurtzman and drawn by the prolific Will Elder.

  • Also, Sonic is CRAP!
