It’s An Adventure, Mate!

TimRay gets all the credit for this comic as I wouldn’t dare give input on how the script should go to an obsessed Sonic fan like Ray. So if you hate it, blame Ray, and if you love it, thank me…for letting Ray make the comic all by himself! Anyway, Ray can take it from here, but thanks everyone for checking us out this week even though we’re probably the only webcomic not doing a Halo 3 comic. Cheers!

(P.S. – I hope some Joystiq readers notice that Ray inadvertently used the recently overused phrase “new and exciting“. I believe you all planted that phrase into Ray’s subconscious and it had to come out at some point.)

RayA female raccoon with an Australian accent named Marine. Hmm… what’s next, Sonic Team? Sonic Rush Adventure really succeeds with its excellent level design and Wi-Fi multiplayer, but fails at its poor adventure mode and pathetic story. Did I mention the incredibly boring, generic, and predictable story is told through pages and pages and pages of text? Or did the comic already tip that one off?

Oh, and unfortunately everything you read in the comic is true. I just pray they never bring back Black Doom…

    Again, hilarious stuff, yet so true.

    We don’t have raccoons ๐Ÿ˜

  3. Jonic says:

    ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been reading this comic since your second strip, and I reckon this is the best one you’ve done yet… Then again I probably would say that being a massive Sonic fan…

    More Sonic comics please! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. offpoint says:

    i totally agree with this post.

    was so shocked to see that this new character was either copying or parodying (is that a word?) the late Steve Irwin.

  5. Chris Hardin says:

    Is it sad that I know precisely what every single sentence in that comic is talking about? Equally obsessed classic Sonic fan. I’ve got around 90 of the Archie comic and SatAM on DVD.

    Sonic’s storyline started going downhill with Sonic Adventure when they put Sonic in the human world. They should have used the SatAM continuity.

  6. Donovan says:

    heheI love this one because its so true

  7. Rokai says:

    Sonic is more complicated than Legend of zelda…

    Originally, I was going o buy this game after having a trip down memory lane with Sonic Rush. Now that I read all the reviews, I begin to wonder “Why do they keep trying these things?” The reason they had so many fans was that it was a simple game, that went at lighting fast speeds, and had awesome graphics. It saddens me to see this happening to such an amazing franchise, and now that I think of it, wasn’t Sonic always deathly terrified of water?

    We donโ€™t have raccoons

    That is exactly what I was thinking. Why does the raccoon have an Aussie accent? I mean isn’t Knuckles an echidna? Why does the raccoon have an Australian accent and the echidna doesn’t? Makes no sense!

  10. LunarAura says:

    Well at first reading this I was humored thinking that you made Marine up and that Sonic Team just might have the testortitude to actually include her. Then you guys said all this was already true and that’s when I retched.

  11. Ryan says:


    And that’s my opinion on the subject.

  12. Ryan says:

    Oh wow so my comment kinda screwed up the size of the whole page >.

  13. Edisythe says:

    Wow! I can’t believe I didn’t find out about you guys and your strip earlier! I have been starving for a new web comic that makes me laugh like others did before you (A lot are losing charm) You need to post more comics, they are great. 2P Start, my new fav gaming comic

  14. When did Tikal return for a sequel? I must not have played that one.

  15. Ray says:

    When did Tikal return for a sequel? I must not have played that one.

    She returned in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle as a playable character in versus mode.

  16. undeadmonkey says:

    maybe she’s new because she’s Australian? hmm… well since she is maybe she’s new because now they’ve got a projectile! her boomerang! wait… shadow has guns…

  17. Tristan says:

    Hey, lets do something new and exciting! LOL!

  18. helen says:

    sirgecko is so right lol. there arent any raccoons in australia xDD

  19. Leif Coleman says:

    It’s funny because it’s true!

    Oh Tim and Ray, you tell it how it really is! =D

  20. chriskatching says:

    ! ! !

    Great dialogue with the ‘subject’ change ๐Ÿ˜›

    Was imagining Ray as Sonic talking to someone…. LOL

  21. Gadoink says:

    Actually, she doesn’t.
    Because these days, they just make a character JUST for a game, then abandon them.

  22. roadjcat says:

    I was messing around with the “random” button and came across this comic and had forgotten that this comic mentions Rouge! Awesome! XD

  23. Rey Alejandro says:

    been a couple of years, and still no Marine. Jet the frikkin’ Hawk re-appeared in Black Knight, but no Marine…. yet….

  24. Mr. Br Mario says:

    Say whatever you like, Marine still has some original traits. For instance, she’s got a passion for sailing out to sea. That is new, isn’t it? She’s also not too handy with mechanics. Mix those two traits and you have the polar opposite of Tails, who has a passion for the sky and is a wizard at mechs. Another thing is that she’s a little bossy, often recognizing herself as the Captain of the crew, to the annoyance of everyone, especially Blaze. Speaking of which… Would that mean we’re looking at the sidekick-in-training of Blaze, as an answer to Sonic’s Tails? That’d be cool, in my opinion. After all, sometimes you just have to be a little more tolerant about those new Sonic games. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: they are not letdowns, just innovations. Get with it.
