Now, direct from the Great White North, Brad Clark summarizes the
original four-part Sonic miniseries:

Issue 0
     "Don't Cry For Me, Mobius"
     Story: Michael Gallagher, Art: Scott Shaw!
     Sonic is chased by Dr. Robotnik. After the chase, which
Robotnik loses, Sonic returns to Knothole where most of the main
characters are introduced for the first time. (Note: Rotor is
referred to as "Boomer.") Antoine then announces that there is a
leak in Knothole (Knothole is located underground in this issue)
that is caused by Robotnik. Sonic defeats Robotnik with a power
     "The Royal Family of Mobius"
     Takes place before Robotnik was in power and has Sonic and
Uncle Chuck running a chilidog take-out stand. Robotnik destroys
the stand and captures Muttski and Uncle Chuck. Sonic meets
Sally (with yellow hair and red fur) who introduces him to the
rest of the freedom fighters in Knothole.

Issue 1
     "Run, Sally, Run"
     Sally [this time with pink fur and black hair] goes to see
Robotnik about the return of her father. Robotnik captures Sally
and almost throws her into the "Robo-machine." Sonic rescues
Sally only to discover that Sally had wanted to get caught in
order to gather information on the roboticizer, using some
special boots designed by Boomer/Rotor.

Issue 2
     "A Crowning Achievement"
     Sally decides to wear the "Crown of the Acorn Kings" which
belonged to her father, but the crown is missing. They discover
a robotic freedom fighter who tells them that Robotnik has stolen
the crown and has scattered its jewels (the four Chaos Emeralds)
throughout the land. Sonic retrieves the emeralds and
Boomer/Rotor repairs the crown.

Issue 3
     "Sonic Flashback"
     Gallagher & Shaw!
     Sonic and Robotnik recall when they were kids. Uncle Chuck
invents the power rings. Sonic and Robotnik have an argument,
and it escalates until Robotnik is constructing mechanical
monsters out of Uncle Chuck's appliances. Sonic then wakes up --
it was all just a daydream -- and resumes being chased by
     "Why Ask Spy"
     Sonic is made to look like a robot to trick Robotnik and to
destroy one of his factories. In the process, Sonic discovers
Uncle Chuck and Muttski who have both been roboticized. Sonic
destroys the factory.

And a tip of the ol' freedom fighters' fedora to JOHN W. JOHNSTON
for supplying summaries for issues 1-15 plus 17:

#1 [Aug 1993]
     "Meet Me At The Corner of Hedgehog and Vine!"
     Story: M. Gallagher; art: D. Manak
     One of Robotnik's SWATbots develops a mechanical plant
called "Krudzu" and modifies a Burrobot to plant its seeds in the
Great Forest. Antoine, depressed because Sally only pays
attention to Sonic, decides to get her a bouquet of flowers. He
gets caught by the Krudzu, Sonic saves him, and they discover
that the Krudzu is not waterproof.
     "You Bet My Life!"
     Gallagher & Manak
     Boomer/Rotor discovers that Robotnik is making a big
presentation in the Casino Night Zone. Sonic crashes the party,
only to be subdued by Robotnik's newest baddie: Orbinaut. He is
put in a giant pinball machine and sent through a very rough
ride. When he escapes from the pinball machine, Sonic blows up
the casino and puts Robotnik into orbit. [Notes: Apparently the
casino was rebuilt for "The Man From H.E.D.G.E.H.O.G." (#16); the
pinball (Spinball?) plot was used to better effect later on in
the "Game Guy" episode of the TV series; Rotor was still being
called "Boomer" at this time. DJD]

#2 [Sep 1993]
     "Triple Trouble"
     Robotnik sends his newest badnik, Coconuts, after Sonic and
Tails. When they send Coconuts' parts back COD, Robotnik sends
two more badniks, Scratch and Grounder, after Sonic. [No, this
has no relation to the Game Gear game. It does, however, set up
the characters from the syndicated TV series. DJD]
     "Vertigo A Go Go!"
     Sonic is out collecting rings when he warps into an
extremely warped zone where he meets two friends, Al and Cal.
     "All The Mail's About Tails"
     Gallagher (rewrite)/Manak
     Sonic and Tails read letters from fans who express their
opinions about how Tails got his two tails. One theory was: one
of Tails' ancestors was owned by Charles Dickens (A Tails of Two
Cities). Another theory was that Tails was a mutant (and
couldn't get a job with the X-Men). Another theory says he was a
loss leader at a carnival freak show. Another theory says he was
one of Dr. Frankenstein's creations. Another theory says that
Tails has Antoine's tail (and hair). And another theory involved
something dealing with evolution.

#3 [Oct 1993]
     "The Bomb Bugs Me"
     Sonic informs Sally and Boomer/Rotor that Robotnik has "the
bomb." To trick Robotnik, they project a picket line on a wall
outside his office. Boomer/Rotor disguises himself as Robotnik
to trick Crabmeat into giving "the bomb" to the freedom fighters,
but this plan backfires when Robotnik shows up dressed in a
Boomer suit.
     "Rabbit Deployment"
     Sonic and Boomer/Rotor travel to the Southern Section of
Mobius (Sonic pulling Boomer who wears inline skates). They come
across two SWATbots who have thrown a captured rabbit into a
portable roboticizer. They are delayed in rescuing her because
they are "tied up." They finally shut down the roboticizer and
take it and the half rabbit-half robot with them. When she
recovers, she gives her name as Bunnie Rabbot and demonstrates
her abilities. Meanwhile the forest above Knothole is being
trashed by a giant burrobot. When Sonic gets zapped, Bunnie
picks up the burrobot and throws it 50 meters. Sonic then traps
the burrobot by burying it. [This represents the first attempt
to explain the origins of Bunnie. Since then, both fanfic and
professional efforts -- Teitelbaum's second book: Robotnik's
Revenge -- have covered the same ground. The situation is
complicated by the fact that Bunnie appears as one of the
children in Blast to the Past, and so wouldn't be a stranger to
the Knothole Gang. In fact, BttP, part 2 featured a tease of
Bunnie about to be roboticized as a child. Note also that
Knothole is still an underground base at this time. DJD]

#4 [Nov 1993]
     "The Lizard of Odd!"
     Due to a roboticizer mishap caused by Buzzbomber, Robotnik
turns a small salamander into his most powerful badnik [No, it's
not Newt Gingrich! DJD]: Universalamander. When Sonic tries to
attack him, Universalamander eats Sonic. Sonic escapes by making
"Lizard Lips" belch. To defeat him, Sonic transforms into Super
Sonic, gets an important component from the confiscated
roboticizer [see above, "Rabbit Deployment"], and cuts
Universalamander down to size.
     "Tails' Little Tale"
     While Sonic rests after defeating Universalamander, Tails
embarks on his first solo adventure. Unaware of Tails, Robotnik
is in the middle of a company picnic. [You're right, it DOES
sound lame! DJD] Tails get plucked by Buzzbomber and Orbinaut,
but defeats both of them. Tails gets overconfident and is
captured by two SWATbots making shadow-puppets. When they try to
roboticize him, Sonic saves Tails.

#5 [Dec 1993]
     "Olympic Trials and Errors"
     Story: Angelo Decasare [debut]; Art: Manak
     Robotnik challenges the freedom fighters to compete in
Olympic games. If they win even one event, Robotnik "promises"
to restore Mobius; if they lose, they'll be turned into robots.
Before the competition, a SWATbot switches Sonic's sneakers with
energy-draining shoes. When Sonic drops on the track, the other
freedom fighters (except for Tails) take his place. While Tails
is looking for materials to make a Sonic sculpture, he finds
Sonic's real sneakers and returns them to him. [The synopsis
ends here; presumably, Sonic wins, Robotnik renegs, and it's back
to usiness as usual. The linkage between Tails and sculpture was
repeated in "That's The Spirit" (#20). DJD]
     "Chomp on This, Chump!"
     While Sonic and Tails help Sally deal with a batch of extra-
thick pancake batter, Boomer/Rotor decides to buy a mail-order
ant farm. What Boomer/Rotor doesn't know is that the farm he
receives came from Robotnik. Instead of ants, Boomer/Rotor
receives a Termite-nator, a termite which eats wood and paper and
which grows as it eats. Remembering Sally's pancake batter
recipe, Sonic whips up a batch and fills a hollow log with it.
Boomer/Rotor returns the ant farm to sender. [What is it with
Rotor and ant farms? He also had one in "Ivo Robotnik, Freedom
Fighter" (#23). DJD]

#6 [Jan 1994]
     "The Spin Doctor"
     When the freedom fighters attack Robotnik's factory, they
find that Robotnik has relocated to deep within Mount Mobius, an
active volcano. Sonic enters the Veg-O-Matic Fortress where he
is attacked by Rexxon and Scorpius. After defeating them, he
runs into two allies, Hip and Hop, who warn him about the
Ferrons. After Sonic trashes the Ferrons, he comes across a cell
full of animals awaiting roboticization. Just as Sonic believes
he is on Robotnik's trail, he is shot out of the volcano, only to
be rescued by Tails.
     "Sonic's Christmas Carol"
     [The cast enacts You-Know-What by You-Know-Who -- if you
DON'T, better take a refresher course in English Lit.
Significant in that they finally get the issue of Rotor's name
straightened out. DJD]

#7 [Feb 1994]
     "Uncle Chuck's Treasure"
     When Rotor accidentally sends Tails through the roof
(literally), they find an old treasure map belonging to Uncle
Chuck. They believe the "treasure" may be an invention that will
help them defeat Robotnik. According to the map, the treasure
was buried in Mobius National Park; unfortunately, the park had
since been destroyed by being turned into a toxic waste dump.
When the freedom fighters find the spot, Robotnik attacks. Sonic
fights back using the toxic wastes, but Robotnik snatches the
treasure from them as soon as they dig it up. Robotnik discovers
that the "treasure" is really Sonic's bronzed baby booties (try
saying THAT 3 times fast ;-) ).
     "Sorceress in Distress"
     Sally dresses as a sorceress for the annual Fright Night
party, but needs a staff to complete the outfit. She finds one
in the Forest and (due to a string of coincidences) believes it
to be real. Robotnik sees the "sorceress" and, unaware that it's
Sally, drags her back to Robotropolis; object: matrimony! Sonic
follows them. Robotnik wants to see a demonstration of the
sorceress's "magic" and Sally obliges, with a little help from

#8 [Mar 1994]
     "Bot's All, Folks!"
     When Crabmeat is caught reading Sonic the Hedgehog comics,
Robotnik is inspired to build super-powered robots to attack
Sonic. Sonic meets, and defeats, "Botman," "Wolvurkel" (a
factory second sent by mistake), "Spawnmower," "Magbot--Freedom
Fighter Fighter," "Captain Marbot" and "Mighty 'Bot." [Furries
might have a hard time slogging through this story! "Wolvurkel"
is apparently an amusing *homage* to Jaleel White, the voice of
Sonic in both the SatAM and daily syndie series. DJD]
     "A Little Music Goes A Long Way"
     Sonic finds an old guitar, and the rest of the freedom
fighters decide to form a band. Robotnik hears the music and
decides to put a stop to it with a shrink ray. While the Freedom
Fighters rummage through the Mobius Music Hall, Robotnik and
Snively shrink them. Robotnik uses a Pest Buster vacuum to suck
up the shrunken Sonic, but before they can put him inside a
mobile roboticizer the shrink ray wears off and the freedom
fighters return to normal size. Before Robotnik's reinforcements
can arrive, the freedom fighters use music to chase him out of
the hall.

#9 [Apr 1994]
     After a thorough analysis of Sonic's profile, Robotnik
builds his ultimate eil robot, "Pseudo-Sonic." Meanwhile, Sonic
is out picking flowers for Sally. Unfortunately, he comes in
contact with some poison sumac and blows up like a balloon. The
Pseudo-Sonic discovers Knothole and is about to reveal its
location. Tails, dragging his tails on the ground, builds up a
static electricity charge and shorts out Pseudo-Sonic. Sonic
tries to get back to Knothole but is apprehended by Robotnik.
Bunnie slam-dunks Robotnik and helps cure Sonic's rash.
     "What's the Point?"
     While looking for a birthday present for Sally, Sonic comes
upon a Mobian needl bird with a broken wing. Sonic wants to give
it as a present, but Sally reminds him of other animals the
freedom fighters have brought back. Meanwhile the needle bird,
dubbed Thorny, has eaten Sally's birthday cake. Sally goes off
to replace the cake while Sonic goes to return Thorny to the
Great Forest. Sally is caught by a mechanical tree; Sonic almost
suffers the same fate, but is rescued by Thorny. Sonic then
rescues Sally while Thorny goes after Robotnik (who, needless to
say, was behind the mechanical trees).

#10 [May 1994]
     "Revenge of the Nerbs!"
     While attempting to steal power from Robotropolis, the
freedom fighters are caught in a force field. Before the
"Robotropolis Good Neighbor Society" can apprehend them, the
freedom fighters escape thropugh a hole in the ground dug for
them by a Nerb, part of an underground-dewlling race. The king
of the Nerbs maintains that contact with surface-dwellers is bad
news, but their air vents and water supply are being threatened
by construction activity aboveground. On their way to the
surface, they move from a Nerb tunnel to a Mobian sewer pipe.
They come up to find Robotnik doing some excavating to build an
underground installation; they also find three Nerb prisoners.
Sonic frees the Nerbs and directs Tails to escort them back
underground; Sonic then opens a line to the Mobius River,
flooding Robotnik's construction site. The freedom fighters are
proclaimed Honorary Nerbs.
     "'Twan With The Wind"
     Story: Angelo Decesare/Art: Art Mawhinney [debut]
     The freedom fighters use Antoine's hot air balloon to scout
out a suitable location for their picnic. Two Buzzbombers attack
the balloon. Robotnik learns of the picnic and decides to crash
it. While everyone else is having fun at the picnic, Antoine
mopes about his balloon. But when Robotnik attacks, it's up to
Antoine to patch up the balloon and come to the rescue.

#11 [Jun 1994]
     "The Good, The Bad, And The Hedgehog"
     Story: Mike Kanterovich & Ken Penders [debut]/Art: Manak
     The freedom fighters witness Robotnik dumping toxic waste
into a river. Sonic tries taking a "short cut" via the Cosmic
Interstate to get there, but winds up on an alternate Mobius
where Robotnik is a benevolent person and Sonic is a leather-clad
punk. After a round-the-world chase, Sonic captures the
Antisonic (c.f., "When Hedgehogs Collide," #24) and the
AntiRobotnik devises a way to undo the toxic spill cause by
     "Beat The Clock"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Manak
     Wanting to get to the top slot of Robotnik's Top Ten Badnik
List, Coconuts traps the freedom fighters.
     "Food For Thought, or, You Are What You Eat"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
     After scarfing a ton of chili dogs as a midnight snack,
Sonic dreams that everyone has turned into junk food: Sonic is a
chili dog, Sally is an ice cream cone, Tails is an order of fries
(regular), and they all confront Chef Ivo Robo-Burger. The fries
get caught by Robo-Burger so chili dog goes to rescue him. But
he slips on a banana peel and right before Tails gets deep-fried,
Sonic wakes up.

#12 [Jul 1994]
     "A Timely Arrival"
     Robotnik builds a time machine to get rid of Sonic by
transporting him to the past. Sonic enters the trap and lands in
prehistoric Mobius. There he meets Sonugh the Boghog, and the
caveman Ivo Robughnik. Sonic also meets other prehistoric
freedom fighters, but they're all afraid of the surface because
it offers no cover [Sounds like they're still dealing with an
underground Mobius. DJD]. Sonic finishes transplanting some
hedges near the entrance when he is pulled back to his own time
by the freedom fighters, who have confiscated the time machine.
     "Bold-Headed Eagle"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
     While avoiding Robotnik in the Mobius Mountains, Sonic comes
across an old eagle, Cyril. He tells Sonic how his flock was
roboticized and how he has lived in hiding. Sonic convinces him
to risk flying, and he discovers that his flock still exists.
Cyril returns the favor by rescuing Sonic when Robotnik attacks.
     "The Lynx Is A Jinx"
     While on a rescue mission, Sonic comes across a lynx named
Larry, a.k.a. Super Jinx. He proves this when the branch of a
tree that he's sitting on gives way and injures some freedom
fighters on the way down. The freedom fighters head back to
Knothole to nurse their wounds and Sonic tries to find a hiding
place for Larry. When Sonic and Larry learn that the freedom
fighters have been captured, Larry is sent out to be captured by
the SWATbots who, in turn, suffer various misfortunes.

#13 [Aug 1994]
     "This Island Hedgehog"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Manak
     Sonic and Tails discover a floating island, but their plane
is shot down by a rocket as they approach. After landing and
enduring some hazards, they meet Knuckles the Echidna. Thinking
that they have come to steal the island's Chaos Emerald, he gives
them a ten-minute head start before giving chase. Meanwhile,
Robotnik, who planted the suggestion in Knuckles' mind, is
stealing the Emerald himself. Knuckles discovers the theft and
Sonic recovers the Emerald.
     "Space In Your Face"
     Robotnik plans to launch a space-based weapon, RoboStorm.
This device will not only turn living beings into robots, it will
also jam all regular television broadcasts and replace them with
infomercials. The freedom fighters learn of this and enter the
ship. Robotnik appears, however, before they can do any damage
to the systems, so they blast off with Robotnik in pursuit. They
crash-land on the moon Muckery. Using the local materials (i.e.,
mush), they get the better of Robotnik.

#14 [Sep 1994]
     "Tails' Taste of Power"
     Tails eats a piece of fruit he finds growing in Rotor's
greenhouse. This fruit, from the Mobian Tree of Wisdom, makes
Tails into a super-genius. Sally and Bunnie are attacked by a
giant Shredbot. Tails avoids the bot's blades in such a way that
the bot self-destructs. He goes off to face Robotnik, just as
the effects of the fruit begin to wear off. Sonic bluffs
Robotnik with a medal which Tails gave himself earlier.
     "Do It Yourself Sonic"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Manak
     Readers are invited to fill in the word balloons and color
the panels on a page to create their own comic (apparently
involving Robotnik interrupting Sonic and Tails on a fishing
trip). Winners announced in issue #23.
     "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
     Robotnik plans to capture Sally and Bunnie in a booby-
trapped shopping mall. After they're caught, the girls accuse
Robotnik of being a MCP; they then smash SWATbots and gift-wrap

#15 [Oct 1994]
     "Rockin' The Bot!"
     While out running with lightning, Sonic spies a frog in
trouble. For rescuing it, the frog gives Sonic three magic
stones: a green one for super strength, a yellow one for leaping
great distances, and a red one for elasticity. Since Sonic
doesn't believe the frog, he gives the stones to Tails.
Robotnik, in a Beetlebot, attack the freedom fighters while
they're out testing an all-terrain vehicle. Robotnik throws a
boulder at Sonic while he's holding the red stone; Sonic is
flattened but resumes his shape. Sonic tries attacking the
Beetlebot but (having forgotten which stone does what) he is
holding the yellow stone -- he beats the Mobius high-jump record
but accomplishes little else. Using the green stone, Sonic
crafts a giant flyswatter.
     "What's The Big Idea?"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
     While Rotor works on a top secret project, the rest of the
gang recall previous experiments that have gone awry.
     "Animal Magnetism"
     Robotnik plans to use a giant Magnabot to capture Bunnie and
use her as bait to get the other freedom fighters. During an
outdoor barbeque, Bunnie (and everything else metal) is suddenly
pulled away. Sonic hitches a ride to the Magnabot by grabbing a
metal garbage can lid. Sonic then tricks Robotnik into
increasing the power and Snively into pointing the Magnabot
toward Robotropolis. Rotor coats Bunnie's robotic parts with an
anti-magnetism compound to keep it from happening again.

#16 [Nov 1994]
     [Summary by Erich Schulman]
     "Sonic Under Glass"
     It appears that Sonic and Sally are tying the knot, having
defeated Robotnik once and for all. In reality, Robotnik has
lured the freedom fighters to a place called Sleepy Hollow. Once
there, they were gassed, put into a sleep, and trapped inside a
virtual reality glass dome. As all their fantasies have come
true, nobody wants to escape. Uncle Chuck arrives and reveals to
Sonic that he is embracing, not Sally, but a broom. Sonic hates
to disappoint his friends, who are all so happy, but decides to
get back at Robotnik. Sonic gets Robotnik's war machines to
reverse course and attack the big guy, so Robotnik reluctantly
kills the VR software. Sonic and Sally are reunited, and Sonic
concludes that virtual reality is a nice place to visit, but....
     "The Man From H.E.D.G.E.H.O.G."
     Robotnik comes to the conclusion that there is a spy in his
midst, since so many of his missions have failed. Thinking that
he has found his spy in a mole, he uses the Wheel of Misfortune
to randomize his plans to destroy Mobius. On Robotnik's first
spin, he lands on "undersea bank heist." Robotnik's lackey's
find only an empty vault and the freedom fighters waiting for
them. The same thing happens after two more spins. Robotnik
finally thinks he has Sonic captured when Sonic and Sally visit
Robotnik's casino [Boy, I hope this makes more sense in the
comic! DJD], but Sonic narrowly escapes. Belatedly, Robotnik
realizes that the Wheel itself was rigged.
     Sonic-Grams: Aside from now-obsolete announcements, it is
stated that Sonic is 15; that Sally is a squirrel (not
necessarily a ground squirrel); that Antoine was a donor so that
Tails would be able to fly [Yeah, right!] (c.f. "The Mail's About
Tails" (#2); that Sonic was just a little slow rescuing Bunnie
from the roboticizer ("Rabbit Deployment," #3). On a more
useful note, Archie Comics confesses that due to inadequate
modelling information, their Sally was a different color from the
SatAM version, a situation which has since been rectified.

#17 [Dec 1994]
     "Gorilla Warfare, or, The Apes of Wrath"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Manak
     Robotnik travels to Skoal Island and finds one of his
original bots: King Gong, a ten-foot tall, 800 lb. gorilla. He
sends the big ape to Mobotropolis to attack Sonic. King Gong
breaks up a freedom fighters' picnic, but loses interest in Sonic
when he sees Sally. With Sally in his grasp, he climbs to the
top of a minimall to watch the sunset. The Sonic Spin has no
effect on King Gong, so it's on to Plan B: while Tails flies up
to rescue Sally, Sonic and Antoine hose him down with banana oil.
King Gong slips and falls on top of Robotnik.
     "First Star I See Tonight: Sally's Crusade, part 1"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
     While reminiscing about life as a little girl before
Robotnik's takeover, Sally sees something fall from the sky. It
turns out to be a shiny metal orb. To be continued.

#18 [Jan 1995]:
     "Wedding Bell Blues"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Manak
Robotnik gets word of Sonic and Sally's impending wedding and
plans an attack.
     "In the Still of the Night" (Sally's Crusade, part 2)
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
While trying to determine the nature of the mysterious orb (cf.
"First Star....", #17), Sally is called to the bedside of her old
mentor, Julayla, just before she dies. They never use the D-
word, but it's an affecting story nevertheless.
     Sonicgram: includes statement that Sonic is 15, and a German
fan disses Dave Manak's artwork

Sonic: In Your Face #1 [1995]
     "Sally's Crusade: The Quest"
     Kanterovich & Penders/Mawhinney
The orb is revealed to be a casing surrounding Nicole. Sally,
with the others in tow, searches for what turns out to be
Julayla's last testament. The significance of this document is
spelled out in a "flashforward" at the end of the story.
     "Mirror Zone"
     Story and art: Pat Spaziante [debut]
     An excuse to practice backwards lettering.
     Sonicgram: Sally's age is given as "about 15." [Note, if
you're going to guess a lady's age, guess on the low side ;-) ]
     "Tails' Tallest Tale"
     Story and art: Scott Shaw!
Tails substitutes for Sonic, putting in an appearance at a con.
His exaggerations almost get him into trouble. The return of

#19 [Feb 1995]:
     "Night of a Thousand Sonics"
In order to defeat Robotnik's latest scheme, Sonic has to call in
as many versions of himself from as many parallel universes as he
can. Artwork by Manak for the first half, Mawhinney for the
     Sonicgram: The name of Sally's father is given as "King
Acorn" (but see FAQ #5). Scott Fulop hedges on when Knuckles
will make an appearance and whose side he'll be on. Again, Sally
is identified as a "ground squirrel." Hint is dropped as to a
Sonic motion picture in the works.

#20 [Mar 1995]:
     "That's the Spirit"
Exposure to an antimatter explosion renders Sonic invisible;
Sally and the others [Tails being the exception] believe he is
dead. The comedic pacing and Manak's artwork mar what otherwise
might have been a very poignant story. Great line (Sonic to
Robotnik--who thinks he's dealing with a ghost): "Give Mobius
back to the freedom fighters, lose weight and get a hairpiece!"
     "Deadliest of the Species"
[Prologue to the Princess Sally miniseries]
While on a sabotage mission, Sally is confronted by someone
claiming to be part of a rebel underground.
     Sonicgram: Once again lists Sally's age as 15.
