smartass kid

The Archie Sonic comics practically show how Sonic aged throughout the years through his designs and it’s amazing

Like he starts off as a silly carefree smartass kid who just loves to run around and do fun and wild things right

But then he gets to his preteen stage and becomes a little more withdrawn while he starts figuring things out but he still has that innocence to him

And when he becomes a teen/young adult the change from his childhood appearance to now is extremely drastic. This is when he stopped caring what anybody thought and did a bunch of weird crazy things for shits and giggles

And then finally after a few years of crazy debauchery he settles down and finds a nice middle ground between his childhood carefree innocence and his more chaotic late teen years into the Sonic design we have today

Thanks for putting it all into perspective, Archie Comics
