Sonichu was Christian Weston Chandler's official poorly drawn and written comic book about the adventures and travails that befell "him" and his (imaginary) friends. Despite starting out as a comic about the titular character, it quickly turned into a wish-fulfillment outlet for Chris and his depraved fantasies, with Sonichu being a main character in name only, playing second fiddle to Chris's almighty Mary Sue self-insert.
The inadvertent shattering of his heart from Sarah Hammer, along with the expulsion from English class, and the confrontation with Mary Lee Walsh provided the impetus for Christian to kick-start the comic series in full force. It initially served as a complement to his Love Quest as a feeble attempt to link an accomplishment, or boost his own self-worth to unsuspecting prey; after all, Sonichu is "Zappin' to the Extreme!" He is Christian Weston Chandler's only son, and the first way past cooler Electric Hedgehog Pokémon!
The comics series has been hosted on the various incarnations of Christian's homepage (currently hosted nowhere, except the CWCipedia archive), and was originally promoted from his now-defunct Sonichu business cards. Each new addition to the series would proudly sport a "To be continued..." disclaimer page. In fact, the comics are not updated with any regular frequency: in five years, Chris has yet to complete twelve issues, even though Chris has zero responsibilities and unlimited free time.
Reader's Guide to Sonichu
How-to and Overview
The Sonichu series began with issue #0 instead of #1, and each issue contained multiple separately-numbered "episodes", so readers often lost track of which story happened in which issue. For example, Black Sonichu was introduced in Episode #4, which was the fifth story in the overall series and the first story in Sonichu #1, which was in turn the second comic. Further confounding matters were the Sub-Episodes about Christian's Love Quest, which appeared in issues #0-4, and were numbered separately from the main stories.
Issues #0 and #1 featured Sonichu as the unchallenged star of the series, with Chris as a supporting character also appearing in the backup strips. By issue #2, the comic had abruptly transitioned to Christian encountering people from his real life in shitty anime battles. Token attempts to tell Sonichu stories and introduce Sonichu spin-off characters were made in #3, but all pretense was dropped in #4-#7 as the series becomes a vehicle for Christian, as the leader of a heroic band of recolors, to battle against a college dean, a group of ineffectual security guards, store managers, and later on, internet trolls and other people who made fun of the comic.
The comic series was presented as if it were a cartoon or anime (which might explain why the comics mimic visual effects that work in an audiovisual context but fail on paper), and was encapsulated into seasons with various episodes (or "series", for our Eurofag friends). Sonichu #10 was intended to wrap up the "first season" of Sonichu. This opened a can of worms as to the current vision of the comics: was Sonichu intended to be the hit action/adventure soap-opera TV show that is broadcast in CWCville, or was it the historical documentation of Christian's and Sonichu's life and times? Perhaps it was destined to be the Gospel from the Stay-at-Home Autistic Virgin Male, hallowed be His name. Either way, it remained unanswered whether Christian continues on with the series because he has a vain, misguided belief that some TRUE and HONEST soul would consider these as "storyboards" for proper licensing and production.
Art imitating life
Sensing some criticism for the self-centeredness of his work, Christian wrote himself out of the series toward the end of Sonichu #7, trapping the Christian character in the Time Void so that the storyline could focus on other characters. Despite this, Sonichu still served as a strong Mary Sue character, as seen in Sonichu fighting 4-cent garbage.com in Sonichu #8, as well as the clear Sue tendencies of Reginald Sneasel.
He returned from the Time Void at the end of Sonichu #9, giving all non-Chris characters approximately one issue to have the spotlight to themselves, during which they mostly talked about how much they loved Chris and hoped he would return safely. On the final page of the issue, Chris claimed that he would write himself out of the series permanently, giving his characters the opportunity to shine on their own. He went back on this promise almost the moment he made it — issue #10 is one of the most Christian-centric of the entire series.
Following the theft of his Medallions of Fail by Blanca, Christian immediately released a new comic adapting the theft into his canon and explaining that the TRUE source of his power lay in his Amnyfest Ring. Since this story was necessarily set after Christian escapes the Time Void, it was deemed a special preview of Sonichu #10, despite the fact that Chris had at that point not finished Sonichu #8 nor begun Sonichu #9.
Chris has claimed that in total, he plans to complete 50 to 100 issues in his lifetime.
On 27 May 2010, Chris announced that he was abandoning the CWCipedia to the trolls. On 30 October 2010, Chris claimed that the trolls drained his creativity and scared him away from drawing any more Sonichu.
