[edit] Sonic the Hedgehog

Lost in the Labyrinth Zone

  • Script: Mark Millar
  • Art: Woodrow Phoenix
  • Lettering: John Aldrich

It's 7AM in the Green Hill Zone and Sonic is finishing up his early morning workout, running on a treadmill, whilst Tails keeps a track of his speed. Tails remarks that Sonic made it to 750mph this morning, but Sonic thinks he needs to do better.

Whilst they are talking, Tails is grabbed by some robotic arms that break through from under the ground and take Tails into an underground tunnel. The arms belong to Arachbot, a large badnik accompanied by two Aquis, who explain that the tunnel leads into the Labyrinth Zone, where they have been burrowing under the surface of Planet Mobius for months. To keep Tails quiet and out of trouble, they gas him in order to make him fall asleep.

Sonic, accompanied by Sally Acorn, a rabbit (possibly Johnny Lightfoot) and an unnamed cow, enter into the Labyrinth Zone to go after the robot and save Tails.

Arachbot comments to the Aquis that Dr. Robotnik still hasn't forgotten about Tails betraying him and is determined to turn him into a badnik, even readying the old armour suit he wore that time. At this point Sonic and the others have caught up, making quick work of the two Aquis and freeing the animals inside, but before Sonic can deal with the Arachbot, a tidal wave floods the room.

After the tidal wave subsides Tails is waking up and he, along with Sally and the other two animals move to safety. Sonic stays in the water with Arachbot who is moving in to attack him, until Sonic grabs the floating robot armour suit intended for Tails and empties it of it's oil. With the oil on the surface of the water and surrounding Arachbot, Sonic then uses the weapons system on the suit to set the oil alight and destroy Arachbot by engulfing him in the flames.

Sonic and Tails then head back to the Green Hill Zone, where Sonic finishes off the giant breakfast he was in the process of having before Tails was kidnapped.

The Fear Pavilion Part 5

Musashi is attacked by the final guardian of the Pavilion, a man who fights whilst standing on wooden stilts.

Musashi demands to know where Naoko is and is pointed to the last floor.

[edit] The Legend of the Golden Axe

Citadel of Dead Souls Part 5

  • Script: Mark Eyles
  • Art: Mike White
  • Lettering: Tom Frame

Now that Dark Guld's body has merged with that of Blackspell, Blackspell demands the sacrifice of Ax, Tyris and Gilius in order to complete the spell in order for them to separate and resurrect Dark Guld correctly. Dark Guld and Blackspell begin arguing with each other until Dark Guld has had enough and punches Blackspell, causing him to fall unconscious. The three fight back against the soldier minions, until Dark Guld summons a giant two-headed eagle who takes off with Ax, heading towards Firedrake Fell where he is eventually dropped and faces by yet more minion soldiers. However as he is outnumbered he is captured again and taken by Dark Guld and Blackspell.

[edit] Wonderboy

Wonderboy in Demon World Part 4

  • Script: Mark Eyles
  • Art: M. DJ. Boyann
  • Lettering: Steve Potter

Continuing from the last issue, Shion is fighting against the octopus he came across, being able to defeat it, but his hand, which has turned into a demon claw, has started to go numb. Shion comes across two mer-people, Lauren and Hardy, who direct Shion in the direction that the carriages of villagers were going, but warn that he shouldn't go that way.

Shion goes anyway and comes across an underwater jungle, protected in an air bubble. After destroying some giant toadstools, he comes across a dimensional portal and heads through.
