Freak-Out Friday: Tyson Hesse’s Legendary “Sonic’s Adventure,” Animated by Bocodamondo!

It’s been the lifelong dream of many Sonic fans to work at SEGA or with the Sonic brand in some official capacity, and in many ways, Tyson Hesse has achieved it.

Back when Archie Comics still published their Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Universe serials, Hesse was brought on board during the later years as one of many great artists behind each carefully crafted page. His beloved take on Classic Sonic soon led to him pencilling the unfortunately ill-fated Sonic: MEGA DRIVE comics, and later directing not only the animation for Sonic Mania‘s preorder trailer, but the official opening for the game as well.

However, there was a time before all of this, a simpler time, when a certain Boxer Hockey wove a masterpiece of a tale – a dramatic epic with running, giants, robots, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles, and finally…

…magical kitsunes and rock-hard fist-nipples.

For Mania Week’s Freak-Out Friday, we take another look back at Hesse’s legendary Sonic’s Adventure, as animated by Bocodamondo back in 2012. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to favourite the original comics on Hesse’s deviantART below:

Finally, be sure to support Bocodamondo on Patreon; his PC has unfortunately been attacked by a malicious ransomware virus a few months ago and he’s trying to get back on his feet since. If you enjoy Dragon Ball, you just might like his animated adaptation of the Dragon Ball Multiverse fan comic!

  1. Honestly, I hate that comic. It’s kind of what that “ORIGINAL CHARACTER DONUT STEEL” trash that I and others have to put up with nowadays. I’m at least glad he went on to do actual, genuine, intelligent things but seriously…screw that “comic”.

  2. Who would have thought back in 2012 that the creator of that amazing Ren and Stimpy-esque comic would go on to animate the intro for a new classic Sonic game? I certainly didn’t.
