    So I'm sure you've heard by now that a "dark, edgy" Sonic the Hedgehog movie is on the way. I'm sure you're expecting the worst. Well, look on the bright side; it could've been worse.

    Much, much worse.



    Sonic Armageddon. Uh... huh.

    So this is an aborted pitch for a film project from the creative mind of Ken Penders. Ken Penders is a former writer for the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series. He's also fucking nuts and ended up suing Archie comics so he could make his own project featuring his totally original characters. I'm not joking.

    I'm not sure why you needed to see this, but now you certainly can't unsee it.

    EDIT: Also, there's a powerpoint, because of course there is.

    That render is fucking awful - nightmarish, even. It's the smile more than anything - holy shit, it's got more teeth than a T-Rex.

    So was this the beginning of sonic autistic's fanbase? it looks pretty much like that.

    Sonic doesn't have an autistic fanbase*, you're thinking about MLP. :)






    *...we're not all autistic! :(

    Huh, sorry for the off-topic - but is that a meme template or something? I'm kinda out of the loop on internet sensations.

    I know that cartoonist (Jeroom). Well...not in person, but he makes similar cartoons just about every week in a popular local Belgian (Flemish) magazine (called Humo). The (Dutch) text is clearly adapted, but I don't think it'll be hard to track down the original.

    I know - I just thought that being modified it could have not worked. Oh well, just me being lazy I suppose. Thanks!
