IDW has it’s work cut out for it if it’s going to ever realize even a fifth of the licensed Sonic and friends get togethers you’ve all dreamed up. Which is probably a good thing, because a lot of these are too hot for the page.

While comic book Sonic has gone to a lot of weird and unexpected places, this week’s winner is something I think we could all get behind.

Salamanderjuice’s entry somehow caught me off-guard and yet it’s so obvious in hindsight. The people at IDW need to find a way to make this mash-up happen. And not just for Dragon Ball, but Dragon Ball Z as well. What happens when Cell sucks up a super fast hedgehog? These are the kinds of questions that deserve answers. Official ones. There’s only so far the fan-fic can take us.

There were a number of other great entries this week, including some honorable mentions:

Mysterycupofjoe took a more straightforward approach. I fully expect IDW to make something exactly like this.

Holy Crap, Chrury Sanson did you draw basically that whole cover? That’s pretty sweet. I kinda wanna read that even though I know being a MLP/Sonic mash-up it’d probably just end in a draw and some sort of lesson about friendship.
