Continuing to edit the original Sonic Saturdays pages, this second page just needed a few Badniks added in and some slight dialog changes. Just 1 more to edit and one old one to repeat sans any changes and we’ll be ready to get into all new material! Exciting! Next page is going to take a LOT of work to do however…I can dooo eeet tho! :D

Sonic Saturday: Green Hills Zone Act 1

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

With the return of Sonic Saturday, I’m also returning to the pages I’ve previously done for this project and making key changes. Since my goal is to follow the classic SEGA Genesis games faithfully, I decided to tweak this page, eliminating Tails and adding Badniks chasing our hero as he persues Dr. Robotnick. You can see the original page in the archives for this story by clicking “Sonic Saturday” just below the header.

Sonic Saturdays – Book 1

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

Sonic Saturdays returns today in celebration of Sonic The Hedgehogs 20th Anniversary celebration! I’ve been re-tweaking and re-tooling the story line I’m going to work with and now I can officially begin posting these full color fan comics each and every Saturday! I sure hope I can keep up with the schedule I’ve set for myself! Thanks to all of you who came to my Birthday Broadcast where I fully colored this piece live on my JTV channel on Sonic’s actuall Birthday of June 23rd! Here’s to another 20 years of the Blue Blur! Happy Birthday Sonic!

Sonic Saturday 04 – Marble Zone Act I

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

*EDIT* I just noticed the blue line inside the text box on panel 3. I’ll fix that and upload a clean copy. Probably a shadow from Illustrator formed during the export.*/EDIT*

I’ve devised a structure for this comic recently that seems like a no-brainer. I’ll be doing a chapter per level, a page per act and a story arc per game following Sonic 1,2,3 and S&K!

After a short trip from the coast of the Green Hill Zone, Sonic and Tails chase Robotnick’s trail of Badnick Robots to the volcanic ruins of the Marble Zone. What The Eggman wants with this dangerous part of South Island…Sonic and Tails have yet to find out!

Sorry for the long wait on this. I’ve taken December off from gaming JUST to catch up on my illustration gigs and actually make some progress on Citadel. Squeezing out this Sonic comic every week is not an easy task.

Sonic Saturday 03

Tails to the rescue! Now it’s off to chase down the Eggman through the Aquatic Ruins that stand between the Green Hills and Marble Zone.

My idea with this comic is to sort of re-write the story of Sonic 1 through Sonic & Knuckles, and re-arrange the zones according to how I feel makes sense. So you will see a lot of zones out of order here, simply because I can! :D Enjoy!

Sonic Saturdays 01

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

Here begins a new comic tradition here at RKdia Comics. A little something I’m just going to call Sonic Saturdays. The same name as the weekend feature…because I’m lazy?….

Sonic Saturdays will be a more traditional web/strip format comic presentation every week (Or at least every week I have time to get a page done.) The plan is to follow the plots of the original games I grew up playing on Sega Genesis, with a few obvious tweaks…Tails was never in Sonic 1 for example, which is where todays comic begins!

Sonic is chasing down Doctor Robotnik, closely followed by his young friend Tails, through the majestic Green Hills Zone! What has the portly doctor done to anger the Fastest Thing Alive? Page two will set things in motion!
