The love for Sonic here is so, so high right now.
Meet fancharacters White Beldrem (Panel 4, far end), C.J. the Cat (Panels 3 and 4 close end), and ... some extra. Fun fact: C.J. is my first Sonic the Hedgehog fancharacter ever, created in 1995 before Sonic Adventure was a thing. I was in 5th grade. Unfortunately, I cannot claim credit for the base sprite.
