What the hell?
I was reading like this few pages from Sonic the Comic. It was a story about getting sonic his birthday cake or something? So, when Tails finally met with Sonic, Sonic proceeded to being a little shit to Tails. Since when did Sonic called Tails a pipsqueak???!!
Since 1993. He’s not mister boring super friend guy in STC. He has an actual personality unlike in the games. He’s not a bad or mean person but he’s not very warm either.
Was I one of the few that liked Colonel Granite as a villain in STC? No idea why people despised the Earth story arcs.
Colonel Granite is excellent! One of my favourite villains. Lew Stringer really excelled at writing good character arcs for his recurring villains, particularly Granite and my personal favourite Stringer villain Metamorphia.
Also, check out the fab 2000AD-esque designs on the uniforms of Granite’s troops there!
Hedgie Bum: Fleetway Super Sonic isn’t being crazy for once
Well… no. Because that’s sort of… how the story goes.
Also his name is Jorge, come on, step it up.
Time And Relative Dimensions In Sonic
Today is a very special day- it’s the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who! This hugely popular British science-fiction program has influenced the lives of many people who have worked on Sonic The Comic over the years, most notably in the design of several seperate machines throughout the comic’s run that just happen to resemble the TARDIS’ (the Doctor’s time and space machine) central console! These include:
(From STC #102 “Unnatural Disasters” - Script by Lew Stringer, Art by Richard Elson, Lettering by Elitta Fell)
This weird contraption was used by Windy Wallis, evil weather gerbil (yes, really, just go with it!) to control the weather. Windy wanted to destroy Mobius in a catastrophe of freak weather. She was stopped by Sonic after he Elsonposed through the wall here.
(From STC #112 “It’s Raining Bananas” - Script by Lew Stringer, Art by Andy Pritchett, Lettering by Ellie De Ville)
Grimer used this contraption to aim a procession of missiles at the Emerald Hill Zone. In true TARDIS fashion, it wasn’t very reliable: unfortunately, due to a machine fault, it fired bananas instead of missiles. Grimer eventually lost his rag with the machine and belted it with a sledgehammer before being buried under all the bananas, which Sonic had sent back by a speed tornado. The story is much better and funnier than I am making it sound.
(From STC #122 “Hobson & Choy Part 2” - Script by Nigel Kitching, Art by Richard Elson, Lettering by Ellie De Ville)
And, of course, just as the TARDIS is the Doctor’s most faithful companion (it is a living thing, after all!), so too does Sonic have the ever faithful Kintobor Computer. This particular model was used at the Emerald Hill Zone Control Centre after Robotnik was ousted from power in issue 100 until the Control Centre was blown up in issue 250.
I’m sure there are plenty more Doctor Who references in Sonic The Comic- if you’ve spotted any, feel free to send them on to me and I’ll reblog them!
Happy Day of the Doctor to all Whovians following this blog!
