[edit] Sonic the Hedgehog

Hill Top Terror

  • Script: Nigel Kitching
  • Art: Ferran Rodriguez
  • Lettering: Ellie de'Ville

Sonic and Tails have flown to the Hill Top Zone after receiving a call for help from the villagers living there. A large volcano in the zone has started to become active and is spewing smoke, but before Sonic and Tails can reach the village, they are attacked by Turtloids. Sonic quickly takes out the badniks and lands back on the wing of the bi-plane, then the pair land in the village and are greeted by the villagers, and the village elder, Chief Kordon. Chief Kordon thanks Sonic and Tails for arriving so quickly, and explains that the volcano, which they call the Mountain of Destiny, has recently become active and will soon erupt, which will destroy their homes in the process. They believe the Gods are angry with them, whilst Sonic isn't interested in the supernatural, he does agree to go and take a look.

Sonic in the Hill Top Zone
After reaching the rim of the volcano, Sonic and Tails take a rope lift down deeper into the centre of the volcano only to be attacked by a Rexon and knocked from the lift. Tails is able to fly for a brief period, but he doesn't have the strength to carry them both to safety, the resulting stress causing Sonic to transform into Super Sonic. Super Sonic quickly destroys the Rexon and heads into a cave inside the volcano, with Tails following behind. Inside the cave they find a machine with a video feed from Dr. Robotnik, who gloats that Sonic has fallen into his latest trap as the machine, which he calls the Seismatron, will cause the volcano to erupt in three seconds, trapping them both inside. Super Sonic makes a quick exit, with Tails grabbing hold of his leg as he does, allowing them both to escape in time.

As the volcano erupts, Tails pleads with Sonic to stop the lava somehow, although as Super Sonic he doesn't care, until Tails goads Super Sonic by suggesting that he just isn't capable of doing anything. Super Sonic takes up the challenge and flies around the lava as it comes out of the volcano, cooling it into solid rock. After this, Super Sonic transforms back into Sonic and rejoins Tails to admire the work, having turned the cooled lava into a large statue of himself.

Yamato and the rest of the Eternal Champions are heading towards Nakano Industries in order to break in, but are attacked outside the gate by a large robot guard.

Larcen Tyler wants the group to head back to the Champions Training Room, but RAX has a better idea, knowing of a place where they can get "plenty of big guns".

[edit] Shinobi

The Art of War, Part 2

  • Script: Alan McKenzie
  • Art: Jon Haward
  • Lettering: Ellie de'Ville

Musashi is scaling the Neo Zeed building until he finds an open window, heading inside and using a nearby computer to search for clues as to where Naoko could be. However, the Neo Zeed security system picks up Musashi's searching on the mainframe. Musashi thinks back to his previous training again, and how he was trained to use his other senses and clear his mind in order to defend himself whilst blindfolded. He was also learning about the use of misdirection, which makes Musashi think that he has been careless in using the computer so easily. He is certain that the Neo Zeed already know he is in the building, and attempts to make an escape, only to run into an armed guard.

[edit] Tails

The Land Beyond, Part 3

  • Script: Nigel Kitching
  • Art: Dave Windett and John M. Burns
  • Lettering: Steve Potter

As Errol and Tails are trying to free Shirob they are attacked by a monster called the Pit Beast, a large troll like creature who has come to eat Shirob. Errol is able to break the chains that are holding Shirob restrained and the three of them make a run for it, with Shirob leading the way down one of the tunnels. The beast continues to chase after them and Tails soon realises one of them will have to fight the beast as there is no way they can outrun it. Tails holds back but before he can think about attacking, the beast lunges for him but accidentally hits his head on a rock protruding from the ceiling.

Errol, Shirob and Tails
Tails rejoins Errol and Shirob, but Errol says to Tails he is sure the tunnels they are being lead down by Shirob are actually leading them deeper underground, rather than back up to the surface. As they head into a room, they are surrounded by goblins, they had obviously been lead into a trap by Shirob who transforms, revealing that he was Trogg all along.
