Actually, this was the first I heard of A.R. outside of the game. And
Sally was unknown in the syndicated (weekday) StH, AFAIK.

Agreed. She's just a kid, which probably tracks with a good chunk of
the Archie readership age range. Identification and all that. And as
I've said before, there isn't anything childlike about Sally's rendering
by Spaziante in #25.

If there's been any foreshadowing on that score, it's been on the last
page of the Sally miniseries. If the writers decide to make Geoffrey a
recurring character, that would be the cue. Still, having already
"established" that Sonic & Sally are not only an "item" but are destined
to propagate (cf. the end of "Sally's Crusade" from _In Your Face_ #1
and the opening of "The Return" in Sonic #22), we may be talking a major
can o' worms here.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled rodent.
