Needless to say, those V8 commercials weren’t designed for people with giant spikes coming out of their fists…

    Then they tried to rebuild him…it had failed though due to all the crappy sonic games released.

  2. Gamage on October 10th, 2010 12:17 pm

    Could of drank a glass of piss!

  3. Vlauer on October 10th, 2010 12:18 pm

    Just imagine If Edward Scissorhands would try to do this.

    Meanwhile elsewhere, Crystal enjoys her sandwich in peace.

    +1 extremely lame meme reference.

  5. Onecanofsprite on October 10th, 2010 12:24 pm

    Seconds later Knuckles was backstabbed by Dead Ringer Spy.

  6. Mythrrinthael on October 10th, 2010 12:29 pm

    And then, my brain went all loopy and fabricated a sequel to this: Amy Rose crashing into clinical depression as Sonic is in a coma. Or dead, I don't care much for that detail; I just really hate those overly abundant side-characters…

  7. Gamage on October 10th, 2010 12:34 pm

    And down came the good fairy and she said…
    "Knuckles the echidna
    I don't wana see ya
    Asking sonic what's in his sandwich
    And bopping him on the head"

  8. Matterisgood on October 10th, 2010 12:38 pm

    Sonic should've stuck to chili dogs.

  9. XPengooX64 on October 10th, 2010 12:50 pm

    Could've shown me your moves!

  10. tveye on October 10th, 2010 12:56 pm

    Something I just noticed…does Knuckles EVER loosen his fists?

  11. Roflcopter419 on October 10th, 2010 1:03 pm

    I'd worry about anyone whose first instinct upon seeing a commercial is to reenact it.

  12. Mr Plen on October 10th, 2010 1:07 pm

    It appears Knuckles' joke was a knockout.

  13. Fearow on October 10th, 2010 1:09 pm

    This is the first time I've ever seen Sonic eat something other than a chili dog. Therefore, that Sonic had to be a spy!

  14. ArmyOfMidgets on October 10th, 2010 1:22 pm

    Now THERE'S a punchline!

  15. UndeadLex on October 10th, 2010 1:30 pm

    What's that V8?

  16. Ozymil on October 10th, 2010 1:52 pm


  17. DM1293 on October 10th, 2010 1:55 pm

    Meanwhile, in another dimension…

    Ryu: *Eating a bowl of ramen*
    Ken: Hey Ryu whatcha eatin?
    Ryu: An honorable meal of instant noodles--*FLAMINGRISINGDRAGONPUNCH'D*

  18. NoChorus on October 10th, 2010 2:02 pm

    And that's the story of how SEGA's franchise finally died. Knuckles was pushed forth as the new mascot and the rest is history.

  19. Sir_Nox on October 10th, 2010 2:04 pm

    Looks like Sonic is eating…


    A Knuckle-Sandwich.


  20. Link4all on October 10th, 2010 2:08 pm

    Knuckles spiked his V8!

  21. FoxyMayo on October 10th, 2010 2:31 pm

    I always knew Knuckles was a complete moron…

  22. BlurrySandwich on October 10th, 2010 2:45 pm

    on the bright side for Sonic… maybe V8 will sponsor a vegetable!

  23. MasterLuigi452 on October 10th, 2010 2:52 pm

    Oh wait, wrong game…

  24. _Twitch_ on October 10th, 2010 2:56 pm

    As sonic found out, to his dismay demise.

    In soviet russia, your V8 could have been a sandwich.

    On an unrelated note:
    The monocle, I can almost reach it!

  25. supreme_slayer on October 10th, 2010 3:05 pm

    What sort of sound effect is "BFN"?

  26. AuraMaster on October 10th, 2010 3:12 pm

    Well of course he was; he didn't do a very good job covering up his blueness.

  27. Axel_X on October 10th, 2010 4:02 pm

    This comic only makes it more clear that Knuckles is always out to get Sonic with any excuse he can come up with. Either him or Shadow.

  28. Mentlegen on October 10th, 2010 4:54 pm

    I liked the last panel,
    Dramatic shadows are dramatic.

  29. Cypher on October 10th, 2010 5:08 pm

    *Obligatory "Pow right in the kisser" comment*

  30. Missinko009 on October 10th, 2010 5:25 pm

    Onion rings…mmm…tasty…

  31. TheHeroPrinny on October 10th, 2010 5:37 pm

    Soon after, Chubby Sonic was replaced by the new next-gen Sonic and thus Sonic and the Black Knight was made.

  32. Aboithagameboi on October 10th, 2010 8:20 pm
  33. KamikazeGible on October 10th, 2010 9:38 pm

    V8 looks like tomato juice, but it's really made from Sonic's blood. Every time they need to make some new bottles, they give him an extra life and repeat the comic as necessary.

  34. Alpar on October 10th, 2010 9:52 pm

    And that's how Sonic got replaced by the newer crappier Sonics!

  35. demospyro on October 10th, 2010 10:13 pm

    Yay! Shawn checked his E-mail!!! I sent that like three times :D

  36. Reclaimer077 on October 10th, 2010 11:31 pm

    The REAL reason that new sonic games suck.

  37. Kirby_Emprer on October 11th, 2010 1:31 am

    dont you mean with nipples on their fists, hmmm 1. either nobody thought it was funny 2, nobody saw the comic about sonic on boxer hockey 3, theres troll round these parts…. im gunna guess its somewhere between 1 and 2 :P mostly 1

  38. elitetrashmob on October 11th, 2010 3:33 am

    does Sonic go on a picknick without rings? :'(

  39. DClaw on October 11th, 2010 12:02 pm

    And that's when he realised why he was called Knuckles…

    …I REALLY need to stay consistant on this site! I'm missing out of those delicious +'s!

  40. Link4all on October 11th, 2010 12:24 pm

    Kids, if someone tries to V8 you in a place or way that makes YOU feel uncomfortable, that's NO good.

  41. Spartan_Laser on October 11th, 2010 4:38 pm

    wait, is sonic dead…
    and what the hell is tails doing in those last panels

    also, guys
    does this make anyone else hungry??? like, for a good sammich…

  42. A_Creative_Name on October 11th, 2010 5:04 pm

    I am the Spy who fucked your mother and now I am here to fuck you.

  43. JboneDRS on October 11th, 2010 7:54 pm

    I guess Knuckles wasn't too slow.

  44. demospyro on October 12th, 2010 12:59 am

    Like Leo said,
    "Like anything games change and adapt with time. My old games were great and I'll always have fond memories of playing them. I'm just happy to capture a bit of that sentimentality in a new game."

    And he's right. If games never changed over time we'd all be playing the same thing over and over. I don't want to have fond memories of pong while playing the same game 20 years later. Blatantly saying the new sonic games suck because of his character change or because the plot is slightly ridiculous isn't very gamer wise. Besides, it's a children's game, the story isn't gonna be more elaborate than "this happened starting this, now save the world". And when the story DID get more elaborate then that it had bad results, remember Sonic 2006? I thought so.

  45. LinkyBS on October 12th, 2010 8:56 am

    someone hasn't played Sonic Adventure 2

  46. Spartan_Laser on October 12th, 2010 6:37 pm

    famous last words…
    "well, um… some ham, mustard, cheese and lettu-"

  47. Odd Troll on October 12th, 2010 7:39 pm

    Boom! Head shot!

  48. Odd Troll on October 12th, 2010 7:47 pm

    Here's a good reason he doesn't drink V8!
    It costs $1,000,000 to drink a V8,
    for 12 seconds!

  49. LinkyBS on October 13th, 2010 12:26 am


    Knuckles is obviously wearing gloves. Ergo, he DOES have fingers, they are just hidden under their Boxing-Glove-Like Structure.

    also in Sonic Adventure 2 he does open his hands multiple times. THEREFORE he is unclenching his fists.

    I am the artist of this comic strip. While I am happy that a lot of people seem to enjoy this comic strip, I am mostly surprised that someone has posted this art elsewhere without my permission. I would like to ask this site to please credit me or take this post down. Thank you.
