[edit] Sonic the Hedgehog

Happy Christmas Doctor Robotnik

  • Script: Mark Millar
  • Art: Brian Williamson
  • Lettering: Elitta Fell

Sonic is in the Green Hill Zone with the other animal residents who have all received Christmas presents from Dr. Robotnik. Naturally Sonic is suspicious about this and goes to investigate, soon finding Dr. Robotnik accompanied by some Trooper badniks who are dishing out presents to everyone. Even Tails has been given some gifts, Sonic feels suspicious still but decides to give Dr. Robotnik a chance. Elsewhere, the real Dr. Robotnik is monitoring the developments and threatens that this will be the last Christmas Sonic and the others will ever see.

Dr. Robotnik giving out presents
Later at the Green Hill Christmas party, one of the Trooper robots, after drinking too much oil, tells Sonic that this Dr. Robotnik is actually a robot fitted with a bomb. Sonic grabs Dr. Robotnik and runs off with him, the bomb inside him already starting to cause his robot shell to catch fire. Tails goes to see what Sonic is doing and by the time he catches up he sees Sonic throw the robot off of a cliff into the sea, where it explodes moments later. Sonic and Tails return to the party unharmed, and wish the readers of the comic a merry Christmas.

Back at Dr. Robotnik's location, the Trooper badniks give Dr. Robotnik a present, an egg-cup chair. But Dr. Robotnik says he must be under-working them if they have time to go shopping and gives them double shifts, he prefers Easter anyway.

[edit] Ecco the Dolphin

Ecco the Dolphin, Part 4

  • Script: Woodrow Phoenix
  • Art: Steve White
  • Lettering: Tom Frame

Ecco arrives back in the present in cold waters surrounded by ice. He is dizzy from the trip through time and attempts to rest before moving on to find Atlantis but is tangled by a jellyfish before he can really do anything. In an attempt to escape Ecco swims up to the surface, breaking through the ice and landing on the ice layer out of the way of the jellyfish.

Ecco is soon attacked by a polar bear so he flips his body, hitting the ice layer with his fin to cause it to crack under the polar bear. The ice layer gives way and the polar bear falls into the water so that, according to Ecco's plan, it can fight with the giant jellyfish. Ecco waits out of the way for the two to finish fighting until finally the polar bear surfaces back onto the ice. As the polar bear was the victor, Ecco leaves a fish for it, then swims off to find Atlantis.

[edit] The Legend of the Golden Axe

Plague of Serpents, Part 4

  • Script: Mark Eyles
  • Art: Mike White
  • Lettering: Ellie de Ville

Yuki and Gilius are fighting off Viprax's snakes, managing to finish them off with their combined magic and forcing Viprax to attack them directly. He turns his hands into snakes and poisons them both until they are unconscious, bringing them both on a cart to see Cobraxis. On the way they both regain consciousness and Gilius falls off of the cart over the edge of a bridge. Unknown to them, Gilius saves himself with the axe by gripping onto a ledge before he falls to his death, but Yuki blames them for kiling her brother. Ax-Battler meanwhile is still wandering around in a hypnotic daze. Gilius follows the cart and is lead straight to Cobraxis, who is threatening Yuki's life unless the Queen tells him where the enchanted metal is hidden.

[edit] Tails

The Nameless Zone, Part 1

  • Script: Nigel Kitching
  • Art: Dave Windett
  • Lettering: Elitta Fell
Tails being fitted with the enchanted battle armour
In the Emerald Hill Zone Tails is trying to keep up with Sonic but is falling behind. Sonic eventually tells Tails to stay out of his way as he's just slowing him down and leaves him behind. Tails is frustrated to be left behind for a couple of mistakes but as he is thinking about it a portal appears, summoning him to come through.

Tails knows that the portal is a link to the Nameless Zone and goes through. Once through the portal he arrives in front of the two Enchanter Kings who tell him that they have heard about all the good deeds he has been doing on Mobius with his assistant, Sonic. Tails tries to repeatedly explain about his letters to his family explaining his deeds but the Kings don't listen to him and kit him out in some enchanted battle armour as they have a mission for him. Meanwhile at the edge of the Nameless Zone a monster named Trogg is waiting for the Nameless Zone champion to come and challenge him.
