It's Crunch Time by Skuzzbucket It's Crunch Time by Skuzzbucket
Okay. You probably have to be ten kinds of a nerd for this to make sense, so let me break it down.

The current Self-Central assignment is to hunt Mary-sues in a fandom by taking the form of a Mary-Sue yourself. I went back to my roots and chose the comic Knuckles the Echidna, because Knux rox. (If you don't know who Knuckles is, you don't play enough video games.)

Knuckles acquired a girlfriend in the early stages of his career named Julie-sue. She only appeared in the comic, as did Echidnaeopolis, where this is set. As you can see, there have been some humorous name-mistaking shenanigans.

The significance of my z-stripe is related to the white stripe on Knuckles (currently covered by his mitts.) Knuckles is the hereditary guardian of the Floating Island, and all guardians are marked by a white ring that goes around their neck and over their chests. Anyway, as a Gary-stu I am clearly the product of a distant hidden guardian bloodline, returned to challenge Knux for my rightful place as a protector of the Floating Island.

I also have a star. Because I like stars.

If you got all that before I said anything, go outside and do something. You read too many comics.

EDIT: I did all of this on an LED screen. If the colors are weird, please let me know.

The Knuckles' comics were great. :D But I think that's my opinion because they had the Chaotix in them (my favourite characters)! I think that Archie kinda ruined Sonic now. It feels like they ran out of ideas and it just goes on forever … :blahblah:

The sonic comics were strong for a long time, but I think they're constricted by having to follow the game plots at every release. I think the reason I like the Knuckles comics so much was because they allowed Ken Penders a lot of creative freedom with the story, since Knuckles didn't get as much attention in the games.

Finally, something worth looking at (knuckles wise). I really like what you did with the other echidna's dreads. Hope to see more!

I love this comic so much!!! ^w^ I admit, I am one of those fans who made a Sonic fancharacter (my friend accidentally made her look a recolor...but a well formulated plot fixed that, lol) bu this was freaking hilarious!
You're poor character in my mental panel...lol...

I miss the old Knux comics. Sonic was cool, but I think the creators got to have more fun with Knuckles since he didn't have to follow as many predetermined plots.

I agree. When I first got into the Sonic comics, or found out about them it was thru one of the last issues of Knuckles, and now...they're gone...WAH! XD

The Knuckles comic was the best thing that the Archie line produced.

Looking back, I'm still amazed at the things that were in the comic- from the references to street drugs to the themes of political curruption and religion. Of course there was also the themes of family and relationships.

This is really good, your style is remenicant of Many Galan's art from the comic. Good job on all the references about fanfare.
